Period cravings + PMS + postgraduate stress = DYING (NOT literally~)

Aaaaaaaaargh!! I have so many things to settle right now! My studies are just taking such a toll on me! (This is what I get for having a perfectionist supervisor..It isn't a bad thing, don't get me wrong. I am truly blessed having a really proactive lecturer as my postgraduate supervisor. But the pressure to have everything perfect is just too much at times.

In addition to that, my PMS symptoms are starting today. Cravings are at an all-time high! Dang it! There goes my diet~~ The one thing I crave the most every single time my period comes around is my favourite dark chocolate: Ferrero Rondnoir <3

It has been ages since I was able to taste them (the chocolate shop at 1 Borneo has closed down & that was my one & only source of imported chocolates that were the closest to my university) & I was lucky enough to grab a few during my latest trip to Labuan. Yippie!!

Okay, this post is going all over the place. From stress to PMS to chocolates. Hee~ Yup, I am random like that. Deadpool & I would probably be good friends...Err...Maybe not.

To end this post, here is a shot of my favourite chocolate & the result of a quick online quiz (Don't judge! I was stressed & needed something to lighten up my mood!) which I got that made me super happy :3

Revamping my life.


Since the very last time I was here I have gained a ton of weight. Like, I regained all the weight that I lost. After the outburst earlier, I finally realized what it was that caused me to do that - self-hating.

I guess being very much alone at a place that I am supposed to call home does things to your emotions & food, being my only refuge & escape, was the only thing I could turn to. Eating my troubles away & eating to ebb the pain. I became my biggest enemy.

So starting tomorrow, I'm gonna start taking care of my diet again. Gonna restart my aerobics routine & I am giving myself 2 months before I weigh & measure myself. I hope I can do well this time :) 

Starting date: 27 April 2015
Due date: 28 June 2015

I am hoping to at least lose 8-10 kg & 2-3 inches of my waist (all from my regaining the weight). I was 51.5 kg & 24.5 inches at my lightest. So I aim to be at least 55 kg & 25 inches by June 2015. Wish me luck! <3



Hiatus - Pained.

I just have been experiencing a ton of shitty things in life since the last time I was here. To be honest, I think I have outgrown a ton of petty things..I'd rather let bygones be bygones than to nitpick every single thing & start barking like a mad dog at useless & time-wasting issues. But some things are just much too much.........

Life at home ain't looking so good..I thought I could take it without big sis or lil bro around but I was wrong. Everything pisses me off lately yet I still plaster a smile on my face; nobody needs to know, right? But that has been taking a toll on me..Overall I feel like a broken doll. It is true then what people (including my own aunt) say about being a middle child; it is the hardest! As much as I want to just up & disappear & to do my own thing, I can't. This stupid sense of filial piety, I guess, just keeps me from doing so..

Fuck it. My life is screwed up anyway..I already know big sis ain't ever coming back; she managed to escape the "perfect prison" & if I were her, I would do the same - leave & never look back. Lil' bro is also on the road to shutting everyone out & not giving a damn about them anymore. He just does as he pleases now & I only wish that I had the courage. I can still recall the heart-to-heart that he had with me & the words he said, "Why? Why do you care & how can you stand it?? I can't. Maybe you can. Or maybe you can still pretend but I can't take it anymore. The moment I can, I am gone." Mind you, he was about 15-16 at that time. To scar a child (I still think teens are children as they are at their most vulnerable state - mind-wise at least) to the point of them wanting to leave home behind is definitely speaking volumes on how the home is actually like; despite the picturesque image you put out there.

This is the first time I truly went all out, no smokes & mirrors, just plain, clear, raw insight to how emotionally-disturbed my life has been all these years. Big sis has it worse than me but I am beginning to crack under the unbearable pressure being placed on me since no one else is around. Life sucks. Sure, I have a roof over my head, a ton of food, a relatively easy life & am healthy, but mentally & emotionally, I am wrecked. Destroyed. Crushed. Broken. Probably the main reason why I have an excellent poker face for all sorts of situations. My face will never portray my true feelings as my heart has probably closed off a lot more than I assumed in the last few years. Perhaps the next couple of years will be last I stay here. The moment I have done paying my dues (which I actually have already done so by getting the friggin' bachelor's degree that is worth much more to my dad than my well-being & happiness) I will disappear. I am at my breaking point but hey, the people around me won't know..All I have to do is put a smile on my face & pretend everything is peachy as always, :) right, mum & dad? Now aren't you proud? :)



I'm back~

Gosh! It's been a while since I wrote anything here~ =.= Blame it on my tabby and Note for keeping me occupied daily until I had no other intentions of blogging. Lol. This is only gonna be a short post (I'm at work! XD) so I'll get straight to the point ^^.

I'm already in my 2nd month of internship at CKCC, Kolombong & I I have achieved my 3rd phase weight loss goal! Yay me! Hehe..But in order to get me blogging again I decided to do yet another 30 days challenge - Correction; Long distance relationship 30 days challenge. Haha. I hope that by doing this (Even at work =.=) I will get my writing edge back again~ Hehe..

Till my next post~ 

My journey thus far~~

It has been a while since bestie told me to put this up. Haha. And since I felt like blogging some more but I didn't have a topic to blog about, I guess well now is as good a time as ever to blog about it...Hehe..It's just some images of me before losing weight up to when I was about 58 kg~~ ^^ It's not much, but at least I can see the changes and the progress that I've made thus far.


Lol. The first two photos were taken at Arren/Tungy's Raya open house back in 2010. I was sooo round! Aaaah! Hahaha! I can't believe it XP. The next few photos are some of the ones I took as they year went on. I only started to lose weight after the photo of me in the cream-coloured dress with a white cardigan. Before that, I didn't do anything to lose weight :). It's safe to say that I made some progress, huh? Hehe. I am extremely proud of myself. Before this I was like every other year, making new year's resolution to lose weight but never following through with my plans. But this time round, I decided to go through with it. I've never been happier with the results!

All in all it has been eight months since I started my weight loss journey and I still have a ways to go before I reach my ultimate goal. I wish and pray to God to continue giving me the strength and motivation to continue until I achieve my goals and I would also want to thank Him for guiding me and blessing me on my weight loss journey thus far :'). Amen Lord.

Day 4

I guess I skipped day 3 huh? Lol. My bad~ It was my first day of practicals so I didn't really have much time to post up anything once I got home. I was just sooooo tired =.=. Anyways, day 4 of my new diet plan has been going well :). I haven't been on the scales yet though. I'm hoping that I will lose some more weight soon. I'm still quite roly-poly (what my siblings and say when we meant round, XD). I just hope to be 55 kg by the end of this month if possible. My long term goal is 48 kg and I know that it is a pretty small number considering I was 74 kg before, but you either go big or go home right? :D But of course I will be taking other things into consideration too. Like if I am satisfied with myself at 50 kg then I'll stop there. ^^. My waist measurement is still 27.5 inches and I am hoping to be 25 inches at the end of this weight loss journey. 

Wish me luck! :D
