I want my blog to be purposeful in helping people lose weight the healthy way.

I will give you a background on myself. I am currently 57-58 kilograms. I am usually 54 kilo grams. I am 66.5 inches. Sorry I am not using pounds, etc :/ 57-58 kilograms is around 125 pounds I guess.

Yes this is a good, normal weight; however, my roommate is a model. Yes literally a real advertisement model and she is tall, skinny, and healthy. I am so jealous sometimes I cant stand it and I believe it creates an unhealthy obsession sometimes. However, I want to do everything the healthy way. I believe I am healthy, but whenever you are living in Asia it is hard to believe that 5’6 125 pounds is good :/ Every girl here is so thin and tinny and yet they eat more than I do and eat such unhealthy foods. I believe they focus so much on their body so it becomes hard for me to feel beautiful in my own skin when I have been here for too long.

I know these things are stupid and I know I am venting, but I want people to know that this is normal, but not okay. We should not feel this way. We should feel beautiful in our skin and feel beautiful as we are. I know weight is just a number and it is more about being healthy and happy which is why I am going to recommend some more good and bad blogs.

GOOD blogs and motivation:

https://twitter.com/blogilates & http://www.blogilates.com/

Blogilates- a blog that teaches you basic Pilates and the lessons are short ;p

This is a workout blog from Livestrong http://www.livestrong.com/original-videos/rrG-k7_d37s-perfect-form-hot-body-home-workout/

I really like using Livestrong as a reference because it has EVERYTHING imaginable !!

BAD:

http://proanalifestyle.blogspot.tw/2007/07/70-reasons-not-to-eat.html

This blog literally promotes being Anorexic. It is rather sad and helpless, but in some ways I blame society for making us believe what is considered beautiful is considered widely unhealthy.

Today I flipped through my instagram and in sparked the blog idea. ;p There was a 14 year old who is 5’4 and 97 pounds and she calls herself fat and only posts about becoming more skinny. She said she wants to be anorexic  Her motivation is Kate Moss who said “Nothing tatstes as good as skinny feels” Well thats because your British Kate and all of the food in your country sucks. Travel to India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Dubai, Lebanon and you will understand how that statement is completely false.

As much as I love her and Victoria Secret, their models for the most part set up an unrealistic image of the female body!

Every Asian high fashion advertisement promotes that beauty is virtually skinny and white. If you think I am kidding, come to Asia!!!

As much as I love Posh Spice, Becks you look better with some meet on your bones ;p Sexy doesnt always mean skinny. Sexy is healthy!

Today I went to one of the kids Halloween parties and I did so well during the cooking and the gathering. However, when I got home :/:/ I failed!! :(:(

HOW can one person who used to have so much control lose all control somtimes? How do you help yourself get back into self-control. The last few months of have been so stressful and I think in some ways I have been battling depression, but how can I get my life back together?

I want to start with my health and then move onto my mental state. I believe when I get my health back that I will get better mentally.

:/: Help Help Help.

Hello, Sexy Megan Fox is vegan! ;p Enough reason we should all switch to vegan diet hahahaha

Natalie Portman- Notice I did not use a picture from Black Swan because that is too unrealistic for the average person! She was too thin in that movie and looks better with a little meat on her bones ;p She is soo radiant and beautiful!

Bill CLinton is the newest to the vegan community !! 

Image

Ellen and stunning wife Portia are new to the vegetarian trend as well ;p

However, it should not be taken that being a vegan will allow you to automatically look like these celebs, nor should we want to. All of these celebrities advocate “veganism” for health purposes over weight loss! 

 

Halloween is coming as I start my detox diet. . . Who’d guess my favorite holiday where I gorge myself with chocolate, cake, and candy is only a week after I start detoxing!!

Well, if your not on a detox diet and just wanting to do Veganism the blog OhSheGlows features some GREAT Halloween Vegan Baking ;p http://ohsheglows.com/2011/10/26/no-bake-vegan-halloween-recipes/

Another blog is http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2010/10/vegan-halloween-round-up.html

A more “fresh” blog with more vegetable recipes is http://familyspice.com/easy-halloween-recipes-for-your-block-party/

However, I am planning on using some of the fresh avocados I just bought to make a yummy guacamole and decorate to a funky Halloween theme ;p Tomorrow I have a kids Halloween Party so I need to really be prepared and ready to avoid temptations ;p

 

Our skin is our biggest organ and it is said to be our biggest detoxing unit. Therefore, a large range of health experts suggest dry brushing your skin every morning!

Stimulating your skin first thing in the morning will help circulation, which will stimulate the detoxification process in our skin. It is also believed that for eliminating dead skin cells it is much more effective to use a dry bristle brush over soap and water.

Suggestions for dry bristle scrubbing:

  1. Always use a natural bristle skin brush, for optimum results use a plant bristle.
  2. Perform on Dry Skin only.
  3. Generally stroke upward in one movement.
  4. Light strokes repeated 7 times.
  5. Adjust pressure to your comfort levels.
  6. Best to follow brushing with some form of hydrotherapy i.e. shower or bath
  7. Don’t brush more than you need to.  Over doing it does not mean better results.
  8. Work from left to right side of body.
  9. Avoid breast and genitals
