New Year, New U!

I never cared for my weight as I grew up. I was lucky not to have allergies of any sorts maybe an aversion to some types of food like bitter gourd, slimy okra but other than that, I am practically a balanced eater. *wink

I remember that my weight started to fluctuate when I started College. Sigh, those were the days when McDonald's opened in my hometown. Jollibee take outs and Chowking deliveries for our nightly shifts in the hospital. Little do you know, I graduated in the field of Nursing. Funny when you think about it now. And that would be a totally different story.

Keeping fit is a hard task and so is keeping a healthy diet. Diet and fitness goes hand in hand. I am struggling with weight loss as I have noticed that I am gaining rather than losing. I also averted to slimming pills which actually worked to some extent. At the moment due to a recent tummy flu, I got back on my toes and reminded myself to be adamant with my goal. My goal was to reach my normal Body Mass Index. I need to shed 7 pounds more. Yaaay! That sure is good news!

For my Christmas gift, we were lucky to have a wishlist. I wanted something related to wellness. I was so eager to lose weight that I even paid the excess amount Here's what I wanted. An Oster MyBlend Personal Blender, why you ask? Why not?! It's pink and portable! Kidding aside, I wanted one cause Oster is a really good brand. My baking hand mixer is Oster as well and after 2 years it's still working. What I love about it is that the BPA free bottle is enough for you to take out for a run or even bring it to work for some freshly made smoothies. Trust me, it's the gift that keeps on giving! Also, this is not a sponsored post!

    • I freeze my fruit slices then blend them when I need them. Doing so will prevent wilting and possible decay of the fruit. I would be skipping the ice to make the smoothie cold. 
    • Instead of using white sugar, I opted for the brown. I hated the aftertaste if I used honey. Tried that once, never again. 
    • I use 1/2 cup of milk. I used the non-fat. Or you can use any type of your choice.
    • You can use plain yogurt or the flavored ones in lieu of the milk. I used Yakult once, it was also good. 
    • Experiment! I tried to blend Orange, Mango and Apples and it was the bomb!
