start. pause. play.

laging ganito ang tugtugin kapag new year. may bagong new year’s resolution na laging napapako. sasabihin, “start na ako bukas magbagong-buhay.” uulit-ulitin. hanggang makalimutan na nga. at kadalasan, ito yung mga #balikalindog programs. dahil nga party-galore and lamon-forever ang holiday season, laging kalusugan ang tinitingnan at kaagad napagdi-diskitahan na ayusin sa buhay.

well, i’ve had this problem for over 2 years already and it just can’t seem to break out of it.

mahirap talaga magbawas ng timbang. lalo na kung mahilig ka magluto at kumain.

it’s a dilemma, really. ayaw mo kumain ng madami… pero dahil nagluluto ka, natural na gusto mo sarapan yung luto mo. see the problem?

para hindi ka ganahan kumain, magluluto ka intentionally ng hindi masarap. it’s so counter-intuitive diba?

madaling sabihin na portion-control ang kailangan. madaling sabihin na disiplinahin lang ang sarili. pero ang hirap mag-balanse ng tamang timpla ng pagkain at tamang pag-kain.

right now, my target is to really lose weight. hindi na nakakatuwa ang waistline ko. pati ang blood pressure ko. that’s my primary concern. gusto ko pa makitang mag-graduate ang [mga] anak ko ng kolehiyo at magsipag-asawa. gusto ko pa makipag-laro sa mga magiging apo ko. i may not want to live extremely long but i want to experience these things.

so A and i thought of “juicing” (our idea is to make smoothies and not just juice. h/t to Itsjudyslife and benjimantv) but we’re still trying to figure it out. budget considered, everything is on-pause right now. no blending/juicing machine yet but i already got mason jars to remind ourselves that we should be committing ourselves to this one. little steps. so maybe today i start day 1? something extremely light for dinner… water? haha!

and, no, this is not a detox regimen or anything like that… just limiting food intake especially at night. lower carbs by having no rice at night — the time when i’m inclined to eating more of it. will it work? i honestly don’t know. we’ll see.
