Healthy living: The story of sucesss

Monday, November 28th, 2011

Oh, I love those movies.

you know, those movies that have the protagonist as the underdog, and then he goes through some problem, and suddenly, he does something, and it changed him completely, and then, he comes out as a hero and beat all the bad guy.

Yea, I love how hollywood make success so easy. They always show the protoganoist working hard.. and usually, this transition period is only like.. 1 song long. There’s a name they call it, but I’m not sure.

Well, I always wonder, how do successful people come about? Of course we all know the common answers that they work very very hard, and that they have made many sacrefice. But, what keep them going when everything falls apart?

Is it a motivation quote? Or how about a song? could it be their loves one? or just their dreams and passion?

And, I also like how easy it seem in the movie to overcome a challenges, and end the story with a happy ending.

I’m not a pesimistic, and I’m not going to start becoming one. But, it does seem too easy how they make it seem in the movie.

Well, as for me, I’m kinda living through one right now. Unforutnately, it’s not a hollywood movie., so sucess isn’t so easy.

And, as the more mistakes I make, I realize, changing, and evovling, and trying to make a positive push to improve oneself is EXTREMELY difficult. .. and often time, people say, you get better little by little. One step at a time.

and.. trust me, move your feet one step at a time. Using your energy to move yourself farther than you are before does not come with a smile, but often tears.

So in reality, how do people make it in life?

Well, I guess we have to reevaluate the story and look beyond those hollywood scene.

For ever great success story, comes with buttload of tales of mistakes and failure. However, often time, these stories are not told and left aside.

It’s hard, isn’t it? Trying to reach your goal?
But then again, no one said it was going to be easy.

And, I always like to end these type of conversation with my favorite line!
“Nothing in life- ever worth it- comes easy.”

Healty Living: LIFE + School + THe Holidays

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Happy HOlidasy! :D

Happy Late Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday!!

—-

I know I haven’t touch 3fatchicks in a while. It’s not because I’m slacking on my weight. It’s not because I’m losing touch with healthy Living. It’s because of school again. I’m heading into a few busy week at school because of all those midterms and finals exams. Also, I’m not doing very well in school recently, and my grades have suffered.

So, I try to focus more on my studies. I still try to eat healthy and try to get bed on time. But it has been very hard. My schedule these days are very mess up because I’m expiermenting with my study schedule. Right now, I am trying to adopt a new study habit. I’m going to wake up at 4 AM everyday, and go to bed at 11 PM. This way, I can get some studying in during the morning, because I often find myself exhuasted and distracted at night.

My weight seem to be a side mission right now as I try desperately to fix my grades. T___T I know, I’m such a nerd, but I really need to be stick on myself with grades because there is somewhere I want to go after college, and it’s extremely hard to get in and required an extremely high GPA. But, I know healthy living is very important! :) SO, i’m NOT givving UP. I’ll still try my best to carry through with my weight and I keep on trying to raise my grades.

The good news is that my holidays season starts early december. This means, I can finally go to the gym again and try to lose all those extra lbs I have been gaining.

I hope thanksgiving and all these “weekend” holidays meals, have not cause me to go back up to 125. I work so hard to get down to 123 lbs.. and I’ll be pissed at myself it I did gain. But it’s okay, I guess, I can’t be too hard on myself.

I have been getting a lot of helpful tips on 3fatchicks, and I’ll be sure to apply it to my life and schedule. I will continue to try keep my weight in line, and I’ll get back to drilling and losing weight when my finals are over. But until then, time to hit the books again.

Good Luck everyone! :) I have been reading a lot of people 3fatchicks blog and I’m so happy to see many people having great success in losing lbs this holiday season! :)

BEST OF LUCK!

Healthy Living: Adjusting to the Weather

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

Every once in awhile, life throw you a curve ball. And I think, I am going this this ordeal. Or.. I could be wrong..

Well.. HELLO WORLD. i JUST HIT 122 LBS! :D YAY! That’s a 2 lbs drop right there! :) What could be better?

Well.. in exchange, I got sick. My throat is kinda soar and my head is kinda tingling.. which is not/ NEVER a good sign. So.. I’m wondering.. what do I need to do to get better.. while not gaining weight during the sick season?

Well.. I tend to notice is that when I get sick, I don’t care what I ate.. I just ate thing to make me happy..and that is very very bad for my weight.. as well for my sickness. ..and this usually prolong my rate of recovery.

So, I just look up some of the few things I should eat when I’m sick.. and suprisingly, everything seem to emphanise on drinking a lot of water, eating vegetables and fruits, eathing healthy amount of proteins such as fish, eggs, and chicken.. and last but not least, they suggest, I try hot lemonade, hot tea, milk.. and even greek yogurt. They even warn me to stay away from chocolate and fatty food.

I’m very surprised at the menu! .. and I’m also very happy. I guess.. I will be able to adapt because I’m currently eating those food anyway.. However, I do tend to overwork myself and not get enough rest.. but I can fix that. Well.. I guess, I should start adjusting my living, studying, and eating habit for this sick season :)

Healthy Living Daily Record: 10/27/11

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Total Calories: 1500? I’m not even sure anymore. I didn’t count. I ate what I would ate normally.

I am kinda depressed today. Maybe it’s because I had 2 hours of sleep last night. Maybe it’s the over dose on caffeine. Or maybe, it’s my current performance in school. Or maybe, it’s because I saw my friend today. Gosh, she is still so pretty, and fashionable and stylished.. and I asked her about how she did on her midterm, and she said she did “okay”. But .. I know what “okay” mean. “Okay” mean.. she probably Ace it.

And.. I look at myself.. I was wearing a hood, my hair tied up, I was sleep deprived.. and.. I kinda felt sad. Because she is so great, and I tried to be somewhat as great as her.. and yet, I keep failing. I didn’t do so well on my midterm. Some of my expectation were let down… and worse off, I don’t think I’m losing any lbs this week. I been sleeping very little.. and at irregular hours. I’m overworking myself trying to find a better way to study.. and getting all of my school work done.

In the midst of all this madness and sadness in my life, I talked to my mom. She told me I got a lot to be greatful about.. and that I shouldn’t complain too much. And..that if I keep trying, one day, I’ll reach my dream.. and my weight goals. I’ll make it all happen someday.. if I keep trying. And,  who ever said this was easy?

I hope everyone on 3fatchicks are doing well. I am sorry I haven’t been very active. I’m trying to be.. but I need to get things figure out at school first. I haven’t done digital update in weeks. and I doubt i’ll do one this week.. But i’ll try.

Yea, maybe the late nights is getting to me, and making me all depressed and stuff like this and that.

Good night world, b/c tomorrow, I’M gonna try again. 123 lbs.. here I come .
Someday

Hmmm

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

My midterm score for both of my classes where posted today. Gosh.. that was bad. I thought I got the test.. I thought I understand everything.. or at least i felt that way. However, I guess most of my classmate understood things a lot more than me.

Okay.. I think I know how to study for ochem. Practice, Practice, and more Practice

For Bio, it would be.. read + take note , then practice practice and practice questions.

I need to understand the concept.. and then it’s JUST practice from there.

Also, I’m not losing weight this week. It’s b/c of the bad lifestyle I been living for the last 2 weeks. OKAY, time to get down to business and start fixing this mess!

I’m back.. :)

Friday, October 21st, 2011

HEllo there dear world!

Yes, I must admit, I have been extremely unactive for the last 2 weeks. Why? It’s all b/c of school.. and midterms. As of today, I have completed 2 of my midterms.. and I won’t be seeing another test until .. next week. Lol, but, that mean this is the time period for me to rest up and prepared for the upcoming battle!

As for my eating habit, I have noticed that I have undergo some unsual eating trend in the last 2 weeks.

Time: weekend of week1

During this time, I was at UC Davis, and .. my god, I ate like crazy. Also, there wasn’t any “healthy” food on the road, so my meals often consist of fast, greasy, sugary food.

Time: week1

WHen I got back from UC davis for the weekend, my life became a race against time.I had only 4 days to study for my BIo midterm.. and I had a bunch load of “other” homework and tasks to complete. During this time, I averaged about 2-3 hours per night for 3 consectutive night. Yes, i was living a nightmare. Worse, my main liquid consumption consists of only Coffee and energy drinks. I drank more coffee than I did with water. Because of this lack of sleep and the dehydration from coffee, my body was overly stressed and tired; thus, I began eating fatty, greasy, non-heath food again. Worse off, I was eating everything in sight. I had no resistance and became prey to ever eating temptation. .. lol,.. yea.. a very bad and tiring week.

TIme Week2

After week1, I knew that I needed to change. Thus, right after completing my bio midterm, I immediately checked my weight.. and reanylized my current situation. I realized that I will probably be heading down the same route during week2 because I also had a Organic Chemistry midterm that Friday. Thus this time, I focused all of my energy being “stressed” out about the upcoming midterm that my body began eating less. I didn’t even feel hungry when I skipped breakfast, lunch, and ALMOST dinner.. It was crazy. I didn’t really did not feel the urge to eat or drink anything. Again, I average about 3-4 hours of sleep per night for the next 4 night, but then again, no cravings. I didn’t want french fries, nor chocolate candies. .. or anything.

It was kinda scary b/c I knew that this wasn’t heatlthy. My body was too overly tired, occupired and stressed to desired to eat. This was a bad sign. I don’t know much about the living body, but I do know that when you stop eating.. your doing something wrong. So, This time, I forced myself to “eat” breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

End Result:  Friday of Week2

So, I just finished taking my Organic Chemistry midterm just a few hours ago, and now I’m just sitting here and relaxing on my laptop.

I find it very odd in the way my body behaved in the last 2 weeks. In my opinion, both ways seems EXTREMELY unhealthy. I think I have probably gained weight.. but I’m never too sure because I didn’t bother to check the scales in like 2 weeks. So as of today, everything will be back to normal until midterm session starts again.

However, I am far coming done with my schooly tasks. I still need to reanalyzie my eating habits, and then my studying habit and come up with a new plan.. b/c at this rate, I’m going to gained every single lbs I have lost.. b/c of SCHOOL. And.. I’m not going to let THAT happen to me again!

Daily Living

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

It’s 2 AM right now. I am exhausted. I haven’t sleep for more than 4 hours for the last 2 days… and yet, the clock is still ticking..I feel I am at the race against time. My Midterm is 1 day way, 24 hours. I am scared and kinda terrified.

I wonder how did I get myself in this position where time is an issue. Thinking back, the trip to UC Davis was a mistake, I think I made that mistakes.

I think I ate over 2000 calories today, I cannot stop myself. Myself control just stop, I am trying everything to prevent me from eating everything in sight. Lack of sleep does this to me, and I am currently living through the effect.

I’m tired, but I know I’m gonna be okay. The night is still young and the task list is still long.. So, I wish everyone good night. I will march on until the early hours of dawn .. yes, it’s tough being a college student, but then again, who said this was gonna be easy? right? :)

I believe this quote is always true: “Nothing in life, ever worth it comes easy”

..and this applies to losing weight, doing well in school, becoming successful, developing an good relationships.. and the list goes on.

GoodNight World.

UC Davis

Monday, October 10th, 2011

So, I went to visit UC davis for the weekend for a medical conference. And.. I think I broke every healthy eating habit in the last 2 days.

Gosh, I don’t know where to begin with my eating habit there.. I was eating junk food left and rights.. I was eating Animal Fries from IN&OUT at 11 PM in the evening.. and was the list goes on..

I feel awfuly tried from the trip, but it was a pretty fun and crazy trip. But then again, I think it was worth it. I studied all summer.. and I deserved a little “VACATION”. (thought, this is not the best time for a vacation) .. but then again, it couldn’t be helped.

I will update my weights in a couple of days, I hope you all had a good weekend :)
Now, I need to play catch-up for my upcoming midterm.. I just hope I didn’t get sick.

Ditigal Update: 10/2/11

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

I been slacking with digital Update, but I will now get back to business. Also, Next week, digital Update will be taken at UC Davis! :)

Pregnant.

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Today, I was in a little shock….

My mom told me she might be pregnant.

I guess all of these news are find.. but I’m still a little shock and a little more scared.

First off, my mom is 48 this year. In addition, she isn’t in perfect health either. She have been suffering from a lot of sickness this year, and she is also very weak. I’m scared for her.

It is a shock to me because I’m 19 at the moment, and my mom might have a baby. I have been an only child all my life.. and now, out of nowhere, I might have a little brother or sister. Of course, this is a little hard to believe, but I think I will get use to it.. and one day, even love the little kid :) I don’t mind having a sibling.

But, I’m a little scared b/c of my mom health and also health for this “maybe” baby. Since, my mom is amost hitting 50, and almost hitting metapause, and she isn’t very healthy herself, I’m scare having a baby might put a lot of stress on her body. In addition, she has a very demanding career also.

And lastly, the baby might not be health either since, I heard that the likelihood for a baby to have down symdrom increases as the age of the mother increases. My high school biology teacher had a baby at 43 and the baby was diagnosed with down symdrome. I really don’t want that to happen to my little sibling, b/c that would be very sad. If I had a sibling, I wish it to be at perfect health, and also in good condition, physical and mentally.

I love my mom a lot, and I know how much she wants a baby. But, I’m very scared for her. Oh well, let see how this thing goes..
