Going the healthy route.


Everything is always yummier with coke.
If only this coke with fiber was available here, it would've been awesome
. :)
One day, I would like to visit Japan again and get fascinated
one more time by all the oddities in that amazing country.


. . . . .

Zero calories plus fiber on a coke? I guess, many people around the world are on a quest for better health. Even coke (at least in Japan) now is trying to be healthy.

In recent years, it has been the trend -- living a healthy lifestyle. But it seems like I haven't been influenced much. *grin* Although I don't smoke (never did) and drink (I don't like the taste of alcohol), chocolates and ice cream are very much part of my diet. And I confess, these days, I've been munching too much Caramel Curls. I don't regularly exercise, too. I dance and bike when I'm not too busy (or lazy. haha).

But things will change this year. I will focus on getting healthy. The other night, I got scared silly and cried after speaking with my Aunt-Doctor about my swollen left leg. There are many things that could be causing it, but I've been told to have my kidneys and my heart checked. Funny though, I would rather have a heart condition than have something wrong with my kidneys. LOL

I've been taking this for granted, this swollen left leg. It used to just go away. But this time, it seems like it isn't. Plus, I'm getting other weird symptoms.

So, this year, my health will take centerstage. CBB and I agreed we will walk/run at the nearby park. And then, there's the pact I made with Chelo -- that she and I will do everything to be more healthy. So, more veggies, more fruits, more happy thoughts, more time to exercise for me. And oh, more sleep, too!

Letting everything that's positive and healthy and happy into my life this 2010.

Pin It!

Yes, I think it's the heart that's causing it. Anyway, I'm going for a lab test tomorrow. :)

I was well on my way to healthy mid last year when I started slacking off and gained almost all (almost ra, thank GOD) of the pounds I lost. Lisod jud ning daghan celebrations oi. Especially with Filipinos that laughter goes hand in hand with food.

I'm back to my strict diet na ron and I'm kicking myself everyday just so to make time for the treadmill. So far, so good. A week straight now of everyday on the treadmill for 1-2 hours. Hopefully, I will be disciplined enough to keep this until...erm, well...forever.

COKE!!! Ka lami ana with sizzling sisig! hahaha

I agree with you said about the kidney and the heart. Mas lisud jud ang kidney problem. I pray that that is not the case with you.

p.s.
ako aim is to be healthy AND
slim jud. wahaha..nahan jud ko
mag bikini! LOL

Heart or kidney whichever Ai is still major. *kusi *lusi *yawyaw

They are connected. If I write them down here I'll sound like I'm lecturing and it'll be too technical.

Basta be healthy.. and you have to promise na this time. Not just for today.. but forever.

A coke is a coke is a coke is a coke. *yawyaw

I'm going the healthy route this year, too. I don't really eat a lot, I just don't move!!! =)

I pray for the best for you, Ai! Stay healthy and happy! :)

Liza January 30, 2010 at 10:16 AM  

Daghan na ta, Ai! My goal this year is to re-establish a healthy routine. Good luck to us!

1-2 hours on the treadmill? Goodness! I admire your discipline! But yes, let's be healthy, Dee. You've lost a lot of weight bitaw.

And like you, I want to be slim, too, only because I also want to wear bikini! LOL.

Continue on with the exercise and diet. You inspire me. :)

Stella and your bro are both right -- the kids are small pa so you really need to be healthy. I heard you are making good progress on your exercise. Don't give up, Mi. Focus on your goals. I'll do the same. :)

Dear Health Police,

Yes, I'm going to live a healthy lifestyle. And this is my goal every single day -- to choose what's healthy (for the mind, body, and soul).

I hope I'm making you happy.

Love,
The one who stole the cookie from the cookie jar. :D

Let's do this together, Mei! Me, too, I don,t move a lot. This should change this year.

Stay healthy, too, Mei. And happy. :)

Ugh. Must I really answer this question? Sigh.

yes to healthier US this year! I have enrolled in a Cardio kickboxing class with Maynard. It's so much fun. I hope to keep it up twice a week, for an hour workout.

Coke...hay bisan naay fiber...ang sugar ana is equivalent to 10 tablespoons in one little can. Nagsakit akong tooth nagbasa. hehe! Ug di ka adik sa kape adik sa coke! :D

Aileen Siroy February 1, 2010 at 11:59 AM  

Wow, Fil! Kickboxing! That's a good cardio exercise. I tried that years ago and grabe, hangos kaau! LOL

So true, kung dili adik sa kape, sa coke. I used to be very addicted to coke back in HS. :)

konsuy February 2, 2010 at 5:53 AM  

go back to badminton, ai. maayo man na nga exercise for you.

Aileen Siroy February 2, 2010 at 1:03 PM  

I would love to, Chi. But I think I'll just walk around the park because badminton seem to be too much for my condition right now. :)
