This photo has nothing to do with my entry though it made me giggle and grin. I think the caption is hilarious and the picture endearing. As I further dwell on the words, I smile to myself because I am infrequently guilty of this thought. On a more serious tone, the society often thinks this way, competition-wise. Most do not know how to play the game fairly and wishes the other bad luck. It is all over us! If being fat will make you look as adorable and as cuddly as the kitten, then it's not so bad to be fat after all, right?
For many weeks now, I have been contending with my health issues. It is pure common sense, I know, yet, I fail to follow these simple rules: listen to your body. Eat in moderation and slumber at least 7 hours per day.
My sleep-and-wake cycle has been distorted and is in a sporadic occurrence lately. My body clock goes haywire especially on my days off when I try to keep up with the normalcy of my household's lifestyle. I do this to reconnect with them, to keep me sane from the almost robotic manner of communicating when at work and manage to still have an adult conversation while consciously unearthing my vocabulary.
Eating moderately and veering away from junk food is almost always what I hear my mom telling me especially when I am binging. I can fore go a meal in replace of a big pack of Lay's Kettle Cooked (my addiction these days) and dark chocolate. However, I deprive myself of the real stuff and feel literally weak due to my decreasing sugar level towards my end of shift. Yes, moderation is the answer and permanently changing the lifestyle than dieting is the key to a healthy body.
Sleep and proper diet are essential to every person. However, due to commercialism, peer pressure, and a contorted perception to lose weight for the sake of a slimmer-body-to-die-for, my connotation to the word diet is altered.
Reverting my ideologies to the fundamentals of achieving wellness, I succumb to the long-term benefits of doing so. On hindsight, it's never really a sin to wish my friends to be fat if, no matter how hard I pray, God can't still make me thin!
I'm trying to lose 10 pounds at least. It's quiet difficult due to the temptations I see around me, so help me God :)
