Starting The Week Right



It's Monday once again. I told myself that I wanted to start the week right. Yesterday, I had the chance to chat with my daughter via YM. It's only the first time that I get to chat with her and see her on webcam since I came back here in Cambodia last January 5. Well...she'd been very busy in school with so many projects to submit and also she just had her periodical exams, so she was really busy reviewing her lessons. I don't want to disturb her thus, I just waited for the right time that I can chat with her. She also had her field trip last January 20. We had a lot more things to talk and discuss but since it's already past 9PM in the Philippines, Cambodia being delayed by 1 hour, I just let her sign out and go to sleep. Apart from updating me about her school activities, she mentioned to me that she always join her Dad to jog after class. Was happy to know that they are all doing okay including my Mom.

I went out to buy some fruits on the nearby market. I'm determined to push through with my number one goal this year which is to prioritize my health. Well, I am perfectly alright with everything but I still believe that we shouldn't only start taking care of ourselves when we feel something wrong with our body already. I am trying to avoid eating much pork and other fatty foods and take more veggies and fruits instead. Thus, after work, I immediately went out to buy variety of fruits. I bought 5 kinds of fruits: strawberries, jack fruit, bananas, oranges and mangosteen. I also bought some turnips which I loved to eat with vinegar and a little bit of salt.

Apart from indulging this week on fruits, I am also planning to start reading a book which I got from OMF Lit. as a gift last year. The book is entitled, "Hope Away From Home" which is an inspirational book intended for OFW's. So, I think it's just perfect for me.

Last month turned out well for me. I got a number of online tasks which allowed me to earn extra. I was able to save some amount from my allowance, meaning I didn't spend that much (*winks*). I'm trying to be frugal this time coz I would like to save for another vacation with the family. I hope I can make it coz this is one of the goals that I have listed down for this year. I hope that I could do the same for this month so I want to start the week right. I am inspired to do all my goals and having a good start is a good indication.

I want to leave this quote for you by now, hope you'll get an inspiration from it.



"All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."

  2. Tagal mo din pala hindi naka-chat si Mikz. Halos isang buwan? Buhay OFW at abroad nga naman. Talagang laging priority ang makaipon para makabakasyon. And congrats din sa health diet. Ako naman ang nagpapaka-bad sa diet at exercise recently. Simula ng ma-hit ko ang weight goal ko para naman akong nagboomerang sa pagkain ng kung ano ano at sobrang dami, at laging tinatamad mag exercise. Haaayyy. Hirap magpakabait when it comes to diet and exercise talaga. LOL.

    1. OO kasi sya naman ang hindi available eh. Kasi madami sya activities sa school. But we always call and text naman. As for my diet, it's not more on getting a good figure naman but really for health purposes talaga kasi di naman ako tabain. Yung exercise lang ang medyo kulang. Hehehe.

    1. Oo Gene, kailangan eh. Na realize ko lately na need natin i prioritize ang health natin para iwas sa problema later on. Eating fruits and lots and lots of fruits can do wonders dahil madami talaga sustansya nakukuha sa fruits.

  5. Sis ng makita ko yang Magooseteen I can't help myself not to drool sobrang favorite ko kasi yan! During my pregnancy isa yan sa pinaglihiaan ko at memorable sa akin sobra kasi si Ate ko as in pinahirapan ko maghanap niyan that time kasi hindi siya in season. Sobrang worried siya na hindi ko makain gusto ko kasi sabi daw ng mga co-worker niya lawayin daw ang baby kapag hindi mo nakain gusto mo kapag naglilihi ka hehehe. Nagkataon naman nag-vacation siya sa Bangkok Thailand dami daw dun ayun nagbibit pa siya ng pagkabigat-bigat para lang madalhan ako. :-D

    1. OO nga Sis eh. Bihira talaga yang mangosteen. Kahit nga sa Pinas, bihira ko makita yan. Kune me matagpuan ka naman, ubod ng mahal. Pero sa Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, very common yan at mura talaga. Like ko din yan kasi masarap sya talaga.

  7. I am trying (really haaard) to eat healthy food, too. Sometimes, epic fail talaga because sometimes I am so tired I don't even have time to prepare a decent meal. But hope I can achieve good health this year
