30-Day Low Carb Challenge | 14th Day Update

I averaged 46g of Carbs (36g Net Carbs) the second week of the challenge. Woohoo!!! I did it! I meal-prepped but the food only lasted us for half of the week. Haha. I should improve on my meal planning skills. When I’m not able to bring packed lunch, I either buy food from the office cafeteria (one veggie and one meat dish) or go to a fast food burger chain and order a bun-less 100% beef burger. If you’re in the Philippines and there’s a cafeteria or karinderya near you, I think it’s easy to eat low carb. Pinoy dishes…

Kick-off: 30 Days of Real Food

I started 30 Days of Real Food yesterday.  My diet for most of the 1st quarter was unhealthy. In my 2018 Focus Points post, I said: I’ll start strength-training and building some muscle I’ll get my waist-to-height ratio to 47% by the first quarter of the month; and I’ll achieve a fasting blood glucose of < 80 mg/dl waking up None of that happened.  I’m disappointed in myself, but I’m trying to get over it by focusing on what I can do instead.

Habit 3: Eat Healthy | Stop Eating When The Hunger is Gone

Two weeks ago, I tried to be more mindful of my hunger. Before this, I ate like a domesticated goldfish. When I see food available, I eat, even if I’m not hungry and until my stomach can’t take any more food. My goal was to eat healthier. But I don’t know how to cook, so meal planning and prepping is out of the question for now. I decided to start slow and simple. Whenever I eat, I now try to deliberately check if I don’t feel hungry anymore, then I stop. I don’t wait until I feel stuffed. I read somewhere that after we’re actually full,…

Habit 2: Sleep For At Least 6 Hours A Day

This Habit Project is still going strong, friends. I just wasn’t able to post an update last weekend. Habit 2 wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. Except for one day last week that I had to stay longer in the office, I slept 6 hours every day. What I found really difficult was going to bed early, which most probably what kept me from sleeping longer. I haven’t figured out how to address that. I thought working out every day would make it easier for me to face plant by the end of the day, but it…
