Finding time to write lately has been a challenge.
I usually leave the house early and get home late because of school.
Luckily today, I arrived a little more than an hour before my class and because I wasn’t able to eat breakfast at home, I went straight to Kenny Rogers – a minute or two from the entrance of my school.

Here is my breakfast:  


I know it isn’t the healthiest out there but trust me, it is better than my breakfast for most days which usually consists of rice, fried egg, fried hotdog/spam, etc.
Lately, I’ve been trying to fix my fitness routine and diet.

Last Wednesday, I tried boxing for the first time.
It was better than expected.
My sister and I arrived at around 8:30 in the morning at the  gym (but started at around 9:00).
Our training finished at around 12NN.
Without the breaks, I think we trained for at least 1 hour and 45 minutes which by the way is a BIG leap for me cause I’m not really a fan of strenuous activities.
I even hate jogging! —Our warm up was a 15 minute jog.
But yes, though it was hard for me and especially for my legs, I did it without cheating 😛
The day after the trial session, my body was a bit sore.

Yesterday (Monday), I had another boxing session.
This time, it was my first training as an official member.
I acquired a membership because aside from having discounts, I’d like it to be another pushing force for me to achieve my fitness goals.
I’m not sure what the difference was (aside for the increase in intensity) but I felt like I liked the sport even more.
It is tiring, yes.
But for some reason, I’d like the idea of me sweating because of working out.
There is this unexplainable feeling of accomplishment after the training and I actually don’t feel bad eating lunch afterwards.
Mind you, I didn’t binge eat!

I think that aside from being a physical workout, boxing also is a form of disipline.
Frankly, my right shoulder is a bit sore since yesterday.
I think it is because of my wrong form when punching or because I exerted a little too much effort.
Anyway, I know this will pass.
The pain doesn’t bother me because I believe in the saying that soreness due to exercise is a reward and not a punishment.

I plan to go boxing twice a week.
(Mondays & Wednesdays – or maybe even Saturdays)
I am slowly progressing and watching what I eat slowly.
How about you? Have you found or do you have a sport or fitness routine? 🙂
Trust me, it feels great afterwards!  


As soon as I woke up today, my mom asked me and my sister to cook lunch and dinner.

She can’t do chores around the house that much because my dad has not been feeling well lately and she is around him almost 24/7 just to be sure.

My dad has diabetes and high blood.

A few days back, he said he really isn’t feeling well and he also had fever.

Today at 6 AM, he had a few tests at the hospital.

It required him to fast for 8 hours.

The results will be out by 12 noon and is gonna be received by my the secretary of my aunt.

My aunt is a known doctor at the same hospital.

The results showed that he had a high sugar and has high levels of something else.

I actually forgot the names of what I saw but I’m just sure four out of less than ten items that were enumerated there had a “H” status which stands for high.

Because there is an outbreak recently of different sicknesses here in the Philippines, we can’t help but worry.

So far though, there are no signs that his sickness might be contagious or anything similar to that.

As far as I know, there are still some tests to be done.

The sugar levels of my dad are also being monitored almost every hour.

He might stay there for 3 days or so.

I hope he gets well soon.

Prayers, please?

Thanks in advance 🙂
