Fitness Check In #10: Winging It and Full On Rant

Since December last year, I have been just living my life, not being strict with food or calorie intake. I didn’t monitor what I ate, but just followed my gut, literally. Hah! If I ate too much yesterday, then I’d eat less today. If I ate like a pig for a few days, then I’d… Read more »

I’m Eating My Words. The Irresistible Jo Malone.

I wrote my previous post (read here) in January 2014. A little more than 3 years ago. I bought my first and only Diptyque candle and gosh was I all guilty about it. The guilt went away, but I didn’t burn it much. That is until, my neighbour moved in. My neighbour is a pyromania…. Read more »

Remember I talked about my struggle with food in the last post?

Fitness Check In #7: It’s All About The Food

Can’t we just march on without slumps? Guess I’m a weak human after all. I’ve been maintaining… Read more »

Fitness Check In #5

It’s been more than 3 months since my last update. 3 months ago, I had trouble eating clean. Now, I still do (HAHA!), but with less struggle. If I can’t eat clean 90% of the time, then maybe I’ll just start with more than 50% of the time, then 75% of the time? Sometimes I’m… Read more »

Getting Rid of Clothes

Remember my post about wanting to get on board the Capsule Wardrobe ship? Well, the hardest part, for me, is saying goodbye. I thought it would be easy, because I’m not sentimental. It’s always been out with the old, in with the new. Out of sight, out of mind. Well, in most cases. I’ve never… Read more »

Playing With The Idea of Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been seeing the term Capsule Wardrobe thrown around quite a bit. Initially, I wasn’t curious enough to find out what it really is, but now that I know, I am tempted to try it. I am no longer working, and as a stay at home mom, I find that I’ve been reaching only for… Read more »
