Walking, A Good Exercise

Posted by Cecile at 5/28/2011 12:49:00 PM 1 comments
It is weekend once again; my family and I should be out doing fun things together instead of sitting here in front of my computer. Since hubby had changed hi s work schedule, we don't have weekend family bonding anymore and I feel so sad for that. For me, part of being healthy is spending time with family to relieve stress. Now, we are stuck at home doing nothing. Hmmm, maybe my son and I can go out for a walk to get some fresh air. I think I'll do that! It would be good for our health to get some exercise...and bond at the same time :-).

Affordable Postcard Printing

Posted by Cecile at 5/26/2011 09:50:00 AM 0 comments
I have been looking for a place that does a cheaper postcard print just like the printdirectforless postcard printing company for a little while now. Thank goodness I have found one. Now, I can easily send postcards to my friends overseas and domestic. They have been waiting for the postcards I promised them and it is time to send some. I know they would want to send me some, too..but really I don't need it...but I'll be happy if I get some back, lol. I'll just collect them and maybe put them in frames. What do you think?

Shop for Weight Loss Product

Posted by Cecile at 5/26/2011 09:45:00 AM 0 comments
Just like almost every woman that I know of, shopping is one thing they love to do and I am not one of them. I can't live without shopping. This is not a good hobby...I know, but it helps relieve my stress. It keeps me sane, too. I love shopping for clothes, shoes, purses, and perfume. The only thing that I have never done shopping for is shop for an appetite suppressants that work. Have you? I think I better shop for this product if I really want to lose weight and wear my small size clothes that has been long hidden in my closet. I don't want to give them away for they are my favorite clothes. Plus, I only wore them once or twice. It would take awhile for me to lose weight, but just like every once says, patience, self control and determination are few of the keys into losing weight, and I agree on that!

How To Beat Emotional Eating

Posted by Cecile at 5/17/2011 07:44:00 AM 0 comments
Emotional eating is a very serious condition frequently seen by physicians but not often discussed publicly. It may not get the research dollars like those spent on cancer, nor does it get the attention of heart disease, but it is every bit as serious.

Emotional eating is a condition characterized by either insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of one’s physical health. The primary emotional eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.

If we find ourselves in a habit of eating for comfort rather than for hunger, how can we get back on track? May I suggest we start by focusing on a few basics:

Get a good night’s sleep: This is your body’s chance to restore its normal chemistry. This natural tune-up prevents you from feeling physiologically stressed.

Daily aerobic exercise: Getting at least 30 minutes or more per day acts as an emotional outlet, can suppress hunger, and releases mood-stimulating endorphins.

Eat healthy small meals throughout the day: That means eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner with at least 3 food groups included at each meal. I suggest eating a meal of about 400 calories as well as a healthy 100 calorie snack in between each meal. Doing so will keep your metabolism up and stave your hunger.

Other treatments include keeping a calorie log. Write down everything that goes into your mouth. Understanding the caloric content of food makes those Oreos a whole lot less attractive than munching on a fresh apple. Next, get busy with serving others. Studies have proven that volunteerism promotes psychological and physiological well being (including better weight control); after all, it is easier to keep our challenges in perspective when we are focused on others. Finally, consider getting some psychological support. These very serious conditions can lead to other medical disorders—and can even put a person’s life at risk.

Management must include both psychological and medical support. Medications are available, but education and understanding as well as professional counseling can bring about the best results. Appropriate care can lead to a full and healthy life. Denial of the issue only leads to guilt and loss of self-esteem and respect. Let’s become the very best we have the potential of being.

My Best Friend's Wedding

Posted by Cecile at 5/13/2011 04:40:00 PM 0 comments
Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: My Best Friend's Wedding

1. Have you ever lost a friend after he/she got married?
~ No, thank goodness!
2. Do you make friends easily?
~ Yeah, lucky me :-)!
3. Do you have many close friends?
~ I have few, but they are friends I'll keep forever.
4. Tell us about your oldest friend.
~ Okay, she is in the Philippines. A caring, supportive and thoughtful person. And I even consider her as my own sister. I wished my brother chose to marry her...for she likes him a lot! She loves my family and relatives.
5. Tell us about your newest friend.
~ I like her, but just like me..she is not perfect, but I like her still. She is very understanding, giving and we are very closed, too!
6. Do you hang out with your friends often, or just occasionally when you can find time?
~ We hang out very often. We love doing things together...we shop, attend our boys school activities, we go for a walk...anything.
7. What's the furthest you've traveled to visit (or vacation with, etc.) a friend?
~ Two hours...
8. What's the biggest or best thing a friend has ever done for you?
~ She was always there for me to listen when nobody does. She supported and cheered me up when I was heartbroken.
9. What's the worst or most hurtful thing that a friend (or an ex-friend) has done to you?
~ When she lied to me over and over again. I had hard time trusting her anymore, but I am trying my best to give her the benefit of the doubt though.

Durable Trade Show Table Covers

Posted by Cecile at 5/13/2011 03:45:00 PM 0 comments
I learned to love trade shows when my parents in-law introduced it to me and my husband one summertime. I really enjoyed my first trip to that trade show that hubby and I look forward to it every year. Being a very observant person I am, I notice everything on trade shows. Trade show table covers look very durable and would last for a long while. The pattern are so pretty! I bet the trade show people saved a lot of money because they can use it over and over again...rain or shine! Anyway, attending trade show is fun! I get to see many products I've never seen before. I even get to buy something that can be used or be given as a gift.

He Does the Document Scanning

Posted by Cecile at 5/13/2011 03:33:00 PM 1 comments
Yesterday, while reading through my PayPal account, I learned more about Bill Me Later and how can I maximize the use of it when I need to purchase something badly. I didn't realize then that I could charge everything I bought online to Bill me Later. If I want to have all my purchases automatically billed to BML, I would need to send or fax important documents to the BIL office for security reasons. Well, document scanning is necessary either way. I guess my husband needs to do it for me because our scanner is very hard to use. It is very complicated. I couldn't even have the scanner work on my laptop though it say on the manual that it can be used wireless.

Jus Beautiful: My Son

Posted by Cecile at 5/11/2011 05:42:00 PM 5 comments
This photo was taken a year ago during the Easter Egg Hunting at Heartland where we now live. I like the blue color of the sky because it matches the color of the pink cove where Jacob stands. My son played at the playground after the egg hunting. My share on 'just beautiful' this week.

Four Questions to Ask Your Doctor

Posted by Cecile at 5/11/2011 04:58:00 PM 0 comments
Back when I was still healthy, I never thought I would be able to see a doctor very often till I was diagnosed with "Hypertension" that eventually contributed largely on my kidney disease. Even then, I didn't know what to say or do. Good thing I have a very patient and supportive spokesman, my husband :-). He knows just what to ask my doctors every time they say "pre-disease, borderline or mildly elevate" to describe my condition. If you happened to hear these words, here are 4 important questions to ask:

1. How likely it is that I will get this disease?
2. What are the risks and benefits of drug treatment when used long-term in my situation?
3. Is there any evidence that drug treatment for my condition will prevent bad outcomes, like a heart attack or bone fracture?
4. What lifestyle measures can I take to reduce my risk, and when would you like to see me again to gauge my success?

I think asking these question will help educate you the things you should know about your health condition and what can you do to help the doctor heal you or take care of you.

Thinking of Off Road Lights Lately

Posted by Cecile at 5/06/2011 03:58:00 PM 0 comments
Owning a house is an American dream; and if you own one, you are lucky. Having a house is a big responsibility, too! You wanted to protect you greatest and most expensive investment. You can do that by buying a home warranty, insurance and everything. I remember when hubby and I bought our second house almost a year ago. We were both excited for it is a brand new house! Before the contractor built our house, we have gone to the showroom for upgrades. We upgraded the flooring, windows, doors and light fixtures. One thing we have forgotten were flood lights - Off Road Lights. We can't remember why we haven't thought about it before. I guess it is because our place is built on a higher ground. It's been raining a lot here lately but no sign or possibility of flooding. We pray that the flood will never visit us ever!

Protect Your iPod Nano

Posted by Cecile at 5/06/2011 03:42:00 PM 0 comments
Hubby and I love to listen to music when we go walking or exercising. We used to have a radio attached to our belt. But when ipod nano came out of the market, we decided to buy one for it is lighter, smaller and nicer :-). iPod nano is like an investment to us since it isn't cheap. And so we looked for ipod nano cases, too! Good thing we purchased one; now our ipod nano is protected and still looks new considering it is already three years ago since we bought it. On the other hand, I just bought an ipod shuffle for my niece.; I wonder it they will make a case for it, too!
