What is something you always talk about, but never do?

30 Nov

I always talk about getting back into shape, but I never exercise. Well not never maybe, but rarely.

I used to be very active back in grade school and high school playing volleyball for the varsity team in our school. In college, I wasn’t exercising or doing any sports, but I love walking around. I used to walk from our school to the nearby mall and back. Probably because I wasn’t earning money then and I was very careful in spending that if it’s a walking distance, I’d rather walk than ride a jeep. I was doing the same thing when I started working, but as I earn more, I became lazier. I’ll take a jeep even if it’s walking distance. If it requires 2 or more jeep rides, I’ll take a cab. Baby Daddy was the same. I was weighing 100 lbs before and he was probably around 140 to 160 lbs, yes he was thin back then. Now I’m at 120 lbs and he’s at 220 to 240 lbs.

I can probably shed of those extra 20 lbs if I exercise. I tried, I even signed up at the gym in our clubhouse. By my laziness gets the better of me. I’ll go to the gym for 3 days maybe when I feel guilty about my weight gain, then stop going again. We have a pool where you can do laps, but I don’t. The only exercise I have right now is doing house chores and running after my kid. I’m still thankful though that despite this, I never became overweight. Mind you, I eat a lot and I’m not kidding. Sometimes, I eat more than Baby Daddy does lol! But maybe one day, just maybe, I’ll have an active lifestyle again 🙂


When is it ok not to practice the golden rule?

21 Nov

One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.

I think it’s a matter of personal perception though. I believe what’s good for me is not considered as good for everyone. Other people might want to be treated differently. As long as you know you’re not hurting anyone or you’re not stepping on anyone’s toes, it’s OK not to religiously follow the golden rule.

When is it a good time to quit?

11 Nov

I am stubborn. I think everyone is, one way or another. But when is it really a good time to quit? No one can say for sure. It depends on the situation I suppose. But if it’s doing you or someone else more harm, then I say just quit it.

I’ve quit on a lot of things when I got pregnant.

I quit smoking. Not because I wanted to live a healthy life, but because I know it was going to be bad for my baby.

I quit my job. Not because I’m a lazy-ass but because the doctor advised me to. I had early contractions so I had to be on complete bed rest on my 3rd trimester.

I quit my computer games addiction. Staying up late at night and not sleeping at all for 2 or 3 straight days just to play online games is not good for me nor the baby.

This is so timely lol! I was just watching a re-run of Hell’s Kitchen season 9 episode 13 last night, and Elise annoys the hell out of me.

Elise Wims

I mean, doesn’t she ever stop talking? Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s a very good cook, but I seriously think she needs to work on her attitude. She strikes me as some sort of a bully. I may be wrong though, she may just be very driven and determined to win so she’s like that.
