Sugar Overload

I had 2 pcs Dunkin’ Donuts, Pepsi in can and 4 wafer sticks of Kitkat. I feel my throat suffer with too much sweetness!

But that’s not just the concern here (tonsillitis), as we age (gracefully) we have to be careful with a lot of things. One of which is our blood sugar, which not only determines your sugar or sweet intakes but also the carbohydrates which is also converted into sugar inside the body.

You should get your blood tested at least twice a year or once a year at the most. Most diabetes cases can be prevented if detected earlier. We don’t have family related diabetes history (thank God!) but there’s always a first time if we are not that careful.

Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) normal ranges from 70-110

Day Three, Four and Infinity

Day Three was a success, I ate mixed of veggies and fruits. I weigh and noticed a one Kg lost.

Day Four and Infinity was an epic failure. I dare not to enumerate the foods I take. I always fail on the last weekday and especially on weekends.

Boohoo! I am starting again next week!

Day One & Two

I made it through the rain, or more precisely the day one! This is a big feat already!

Breakfast: Coffee with creamer and sugar (I can’t live without these), 1 white bun (w/o spread)

Lunch, Snacks, Dinner: Fruits, fruits, fruits!

Btw, I am doing the General Motors Diet. And for day one (19 Sept), its eat all you can fresh fruits.

For day two (20 Sept), another eat all you can but this time it’s veggies.

Breakfast: Coffee with creamer and sugar (I really can’t live without these), 1 brown bun (w/o spread)

Lunch, Snacks: Veggie

I still have several hours to say if I will be able to complete Day Two.

Dinner: Hopefully no one would ask me to go out and eat. Goodluck!

Day Zero

I usually start my diet with Day Zero. It’s like preparation for the Day One, where I try to cut down on foods and prepare my mind.

Yesterday was my Day Zero, I had coffee and a bun with sandwich spread for breakfast, had grapes for lunch and apple for afternoon snacks. Quite successful, I think so. Then my cousin brought packed foods from a birthday party. Who could resist a good food? Fortunately it’s not that good so I just ate a small portion. Still I wasn’t able to resist the temptation.

Today, I am not sure if it will be Day One or still Day Zero. I still have the full day ahead and we’ll never know what will happen or what temptation I will encounter.

Zumba Craze

What Is Zumba?

From About.com
Zumba is a popular fitness program inspired by Latin dance. The word "Zumba" comes from a Colombian word that means to move fast and have fun, which is just how people describe the routine. Using upbeat Latin music together with cardiovascular exercise, Zumba is aerobic dancing that is
lots of fun and easy to learn.

A friend is into Zumba lately, she was having a blast dancing and at the same time sweating it out in the comfort of her home. She said she just follows the youtube video and that’s it.

I was encourage to do the same, but knowing me I just kept on making up excuses or procrastinating. But I plan to try it later, I’ll tell you my first hand experience.

Bloody Test

I just came from a fasting blood test, it required me to fast for 12 hours with no food nor liquid intake. Nothing to worry about, it's just a routine test my doctor require me every 2 months.

I at least need to take care of my health, with all the stress, pollution, food tripping, late night outs or sleep deprivation. I know that eventually all these will keep up and maybe it will be too late.

Fortunately, our company provides a great medical package. I just have to pay 50 AED and all the laboratory tests, doctor fees and even prescripted drugs are included. If only they could include diet pills too, maybe I should request my doctor for that.
