It’s my greatest dream to travel around the world. Sailing away…
152 lbs…it’s my record breaking heaviest! And I don’t feel good about it. I feel so heavy and whenever I use stairs at the office, I gasp for my breath which is really ticking me off. Now it’s time for me to get right back to being fit and gain my stamina and endurance. I set a goal of 20 off on my birthday but then I challenged myself to a 30 goal in 3 months time.
That’s the goal and a few weeks back I had a hard time when and how to start. I somehow need a little push. It leads me in watching Extreme Makeover: Weightloss Edition which gave me enough confidence and determination to take care shredding this weight off.
I started with my nutritional diet. Cutting off calories and carbs started last two weeks with no rice at all. And for almost a week now, I am dedicated to a daily 3-5km jog which I am consistent as of the moment. 5lbs was burned and few more pounds to work out with.

I’ve been to Pundaquit several times to spend summer on the beach. Hopping from one island to another…Camara, Anawangin, Capones. This time around instead of riding on a boat from Pundaquit to Anawangin, the group plan to hike via Mt. Pundaquit. Another challenge that ticks my adrenalin up high.
Mt. Manalmon Sitio Madlum
San Miguel, Bulacan
I was invited for a day hike in Bulacan. And since I am a bum for adventure, I was able to join the group. Luckily, the hike was schedule Sunday (day off). Whenever there’s an opportunity and no time conflict with my work expect me to be on that journey.
Watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is an inspiring series which brought me in trying a makeover of my own.
I am into wood crafting lately but I don’t have my own tools and so I started to get the basic tools I needed to start with some projects. Not exactly the power tools I have in mind :-) but soon maybe. For now, it is all about manual labor.
Fond of DIY home decors using recycled wood pallets and got all the ideas from the internet. Doing my own research, there are lots of things you can do with wood pallets and I need to have my working area.
October comes…and this is what I have been waiting for…Puto bumbong. My all time favorite during “BER” Season.
Traditionally made from a special variety of sticky or glutinous rice (called pirurutong) which has a distinctly purple colour. The rice mixture is soaked in saltwater and dried overnight and then poured into bumbóng (bamboo tube) and then steamed until steam rises out of the bamboo tubes. It is served topped with butter or margarine and shredded coconut mixed with brown sugar, cheese and condensed milk. It is commonly eaten during Christmas in the Philippines along with bibingka, another type of rice cake.
It’s not a good thing to have a blood work for Uric Acid and SGPT after all the food consumption for the past few months. All ended up ELEVATED :-(
Been experiencing knee and joint pain as well as hand arthritis. Not so good. I have to do a little bit of something.
Low Purine Diet
Take in a healthy dose of vitamin C
Limit or avoid Alcohol intake :-(
Avoid bakery products
Drink plenty of fluids to help flush uric acid from your body
