Oh blog how I’ve missed thee! I realized now that it’s almost been a month since my last post here. Whew! The past few weeks have been filled with stuff at work that I neglected my blogging duties. Sorry about that! Now you might label me as a workaholic but yeah, I am gearing towards that spectrum. I volunteered to co-head one of the initiatives at my company that my life has been filled with that too. To be honest, I am unsure of how to balance things at the moment but I think I’m getting the hang of it now. Yeah…hungry employee’s got it covered. 😎 I don’t know why I typed that but I just want to use that emoji. Mwehehe 😛
I had another realization too. I really need to take better care of myself. I have been pushing myself through all these events that it has taken a toll on my health. As of writing, I am sick. Mostly cough due to an allergy but I have had other minor illnesses weeks before this. Ugh…and I can’t have coffee! My doctor advised me to steer clear of sweets, coffee, tea and soda. I can handle the others but coffee? I mustered all my strength to get up every morning. Going back to that “taking care of myself” part, yeah, I need some sort of transformation in terms of how I eat too. I do have this tendency to stress eat which is really bad. No matter how hard I exercise, 70% really goes to what you take in your body. There were attempts in the past in terms of food diet but I need something sustainable. Now that I have typed that, I suddenly got scared because now, it’s out there! I really have to do it. And I am taking this as a challenge. It’s going to be a feat for me considering that I blog about food. So moderation is going to be the key here. I mean, I’m not getting any younger. And the rate of metabolism will slow down. So it’s time that I do something about it. From now on, I’ll take things easy, not push my body too much, get enough rest and be healthy. Wow…heavy statements but if I don’t change, this cycle of getting sick and tired will just continue. It has to stop. And the change has to start with me.
So I hope this random musing is somehow inspirational. It’s sort of my getting-back-to-that -blog comeback post before I feature all those pending entries. Yeah…July is going to be interesting. Will it be busy? As always. Will there be a big change? I am keeping both my fingers crossed. 😉
