Inspired by The Iron Lady

I went to see The Iron Lady last night, it was a little different to what I expected, but there were lots of awesome quotes and they strikes a core in me. Sharing the most memorable for me personally as i do think they are a very close reflection of what i try to do everyday of my life

"Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become... habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny! What we think we become."
 Margaret Thatcher

Here is another scene when Marget Thatcher was talking about the war with Alexander Haig

A: Let's face it. The Falkland islands are thousands of miles away; not many of your people there; of no social or economic importance... 
M: Like Hawaii, you mean?

This scene was special to me, as it reminded me how we are surrounded by people who makes you feels that what you cares about is "insignificant" and makes you feel that you are "making something out of nothing". In fact, what really matters is how important this issue is to YOU. not to them. The same goes to our personal journey in life and fitness. Do not let others tells you what they think it's right. Be your own boss.

Have a good day, signing off for now.

How to NOT eat food you know you should not be.

I got inspired by Geosomin' s blog about her date with Mr. Beer and Ms. Popped corn.
Eating yummylious food  for as much as i want and not get sick/ fat will probably be one of my 3 wishes if i have a genie that will grant me the wishes.

If you have been reading, you will know that I am a low carber. It has become clear to me, diary and wheat/ grains makes my stomach and skin flare up. It is not what my body wants. However. I was hooked on all that yummylicious process stuff that my body didn't like. I figure out if i "ate" milk (aka ice-cream) even if it was just 1 scoop, it messes with my stomach for a week. If it was wheat/ grains I will have a break out which will take me approx. 2 months to get over it. Clearly not what i need and want.

At the end of Jan, i decided that I have been on and off low carb for long enough to do it flat out, and simply, i had enough of this madness of putting food in my mouth and expect the discomfort to kick in within hours of enjoying the food.

Here is what i did to put it in a picture for myself. It's kind of like kinder garden "good job" stickers. The Red bunnies chops are the days i feed my body in the way that it needs. The Blue piglet chop are the days that; well, i was being a pig. I aim to have a sea of bunnies until my birthday 15Aug.

This is very simply, but i have found it very motivating and empowering to be able to SEE if i am doing the right thing!
Keep up the good work, take one day at a time!!!

Singing off for now
