Spread the love with Reese Spreads

Disclosure:  I received a complimentary products from #influenster as part of their voxbox program.  I’m not compensated for this post and all delicious opinions are mine.

Definitely a chocolate lover and I must admit that it’s one of the reason why I’m getting bigger lately.  I just can’t help not to get a bite of my favorite chocolate and you know if you have too much calorie intake and you add a chocolate or twos to your daily diet and you will surely be getting an excess baggage on your tummy or thighs and even at your arms too. In short, you will get fatter in no time.

But who cares, as long as you are still healthy and far away from sickness, there’s no cause for worrying. So, enough for the very long introduction.

I just couldn’t contain myself not to make excuses since I am guilty of eating a peanut butter and chocolate this morning. Yes, i’m so happy that my favorite peanut butter and chocolates now comes in a one delicious and so yummy spreads.  The Reese Spreads is definitely a must try for every chocolate and peanut butter lovers.

Ooh no, i’m not bragging because i’m happy nor making you jealous because i’m having the time of my life eating and enjoying this post. The once well loved peanut butter cup now comes in a spreads.  Now, wondering why they did not think about that before?

But then, I don’t think i have to describe the feeling since many of you already knew about Reese but i’m just going to add that it was really a delicious treat and I’m now starting to think many ways i can do with it. But for now, i’ll savor a me time.

Sappe Beauti Drink – Collagen and Fiber Drink for a beautiful you

beauty tonic

Just found this Beauti Drink (beauty drink) from Sappe.  Although, i am not someone who encourage beauty drinks , i thought it would be nice to try it so i can let my readers know about this new beauty drink that can be found on your local drugstore or grocery.

The collagen drink was apple flavored infused by 1000 mg collagen which I believe was taken from deep sea fish, Benefits promised  includes increasing skin moisture, fight osteoporosis, maintain skin elasticity.

And for those who wanted to maintain their figure and good weight,  the The Sappe Beauti Fibre drink  has 8,000 mg. & L-Carnitine is definitely worth looking forward.    Since fibre is known to help our metabolism, i thought this would be a great drink for me.  

Who doesn’t want to be beautiful and healthy.  I think everybody does, i’m not quite sure if the components are natural since i don’t remember reading it on the packaging.  Both tastes just fine with me although I could not say that it makes me beautiful in one drink.  Just with other product, continuous usage is the key. 

Will I buy it again?  Will definitely try it once more. 

Affordability :  It’s within your budget.

Fitness Diary: Getting Fit for a healthier you

When I look at the mirror and see how big I become after giving birth to two kids, I told myself that this is the time that I needed to organize myself and take control of my weight.

Losing weight is not as easy as it seems, you need to commit to be able to achieve the goals you have.  You also need a burning desire in your heart to begin a journey of getting fit.

Some maybe born to be petite and other’s becomes overweight because of excessive eating.  That’s the problem with me, since I worked in the judiciary, i couldn’t help not to eat for two reason.  I crave for food when i see them and it becomes a ritual in the office to eat and enjoy a good conversation in what we called the “long table”.

Some may view that getting fit is easy with the right diet and exercise. But it’s not also good to starve your self by not eating because you just wanted to fit on your size 24 denim.

Getting fit should kick off with the right regime. That means, choosing the right food and sticking to your goal.

IMG_1618

You also need to educate your self with the right foods since there would be a drastic change in your eating habits. Beginning a diet means changing the food we usually eat and choosing something with less calories but full of essential vitamins and minerals that our body needs.  Eat the right foods, it’s okay to read the labels and because you want to get fitter, you need to make healthy and wise choices.

There are days that your stomach and your mind would say you wanted to eat something and yes there are times that I really could not suppress my urge to eat and i have to tell myself that I have a goal and indulging too much is not a part of that goal.

Think little and often,  I read this advice from fitness tips which means, getting those body to work out even at least for some period of time in a day or days in a week, like 30 minutes a day rather than doing it once in a week or once every other week and the worst part, forgetting them at all.

Get the right gear, if in your exercise routine includes running or brisk walking or going to the gym or starting a new sport, it is always necessary to get the right gear which means, getting comfortable shoes  and clothes or sports apparel. If your planning to go and try zumba, pilates, yoga or some sports activities, there are certain products that you needed to buy.

But it doesn’t mean that you need to sacrifice your family budget just to buy this, there are ways that doesn’t need your money instead it needs your effort and moving your body.

getting fit

Focus,  just like in any activity or project, getting fit needs your time and focus.  If you are focus with your goals, you will see in no time that you can  achieve them.  Now, if you are already there, don’t just stop because you got what you wished for.  Remember that it is easier to get fat rather than to trim down and we don’t want to repeat  the hard process all over again.

journey (1)

Here’s an old photograph of me from 3 years to last year and since last January when i decided to take this challenge, i lose almost 2 1/2 kilos from 53 kilos (january weight) to my very recent 50.5 kilos which i think is a good considerable amount.  Although there are still a lot to work out to do, my arms, my legs and my tummy needs extra work and i know with my 3P’s (my motif to myself , Patience, Perseverance and Proper diet) i can’t wait to see a more improved result.

Fitness: Quaker Oat Cookies- Indulge without sacrificing your diet

getting fit with quaker
Your on a diet. Does it mean you need to be very strict on your diet and forget how good eating is?

Well, i believe that there are still ways for you to enjoy a hearty snacks without compromising your diet.

Try this  oat cookies and flavored oatmeals coming from my favorite brand of Oatmeal. With less fat, no artificial flavor and 0% trans fat, I don’t need to worry too much that I am  ruining my diet plan.    Afterall, what I am really after is getting a good health and we all know that oats are good for our body.

Oats is a good source of fiber, it’s good for lowering blood cholesterol, blood sugar, and contains hundred of phytochemicals that helps reduce the risk of cancer.

And because of it’s high fiber content, i don’t have any problem with my vowel anymore.  Before, i used to have an irregular vowel which is really a big problem but with oats in my diet,  it improves a lot.   I guess, i’m really on the road of getting fit and healthy living.

Do you love oats? What flavor do you like?
