Beautiful Skin Starts from Within #TuloyAngGanda #MyraHolistic

I have personally been a believer of health from within. This has been my reason why I stopped drinking sodas since I was in college and have made sure I drink more than 10 glasses of water a day. I’m what one might call a “Water Advocate.” I’m so into it that I ask my boys to try to drink up to 15 glasses of water a day, not counting coffee or juice drinks that they take. No, I haven’t really taken it so far as to have them make a tick mark of sorts to make sure they make it to 15. But my asking them every so often at random parts of the day the number of glasses they’ve drank make them conscious enough.

What’s really nice about this is, drinking enough water each day can actually retard aging and make our skin glow. What lovely bonus that is! That was affirmed as I got a hold of this Myra Holistic Skin Care package.

Kor One Water Bottle

I have always wanted to get hold of my own Kor Water bottle but I don’t really know where to find it years back. So I was all giddy when the package came with a personalized Kor One! I haven’t used a better hydration vessel. The cap doesn’t bang on my nose as I drink and allows me to take that perfect grip as I sip.  And I haven’t even started with the Inspirational stones yet. I figured that’s another post altogether. Because really, I can go on and on about my being a Water Advocate, which Kor Water, I recently found out, call their followers as such. (more…)

Beach ready for Summer with Nestle Fitnesse

With March ushering the Summer season in, I got to thinking if I am ready for it. Our flying to the beach on the last stretch of the summer months will hopefully turn out to be a good thing. Why, you ask? Because I still have time to get ready. Yay! 🙂

Here is where my problem lies. I have attempted three work out exercises since last November. With Insanity Workout, I could hardly walk for a week straight just doing the first 15 minutes of the “Fit Test” and the warm up and stretching of “Pure Cardio.” Hip Hop Abs, I had to drop when we started the construction of our house’s second floor. Aside from my being way too swamped with things to do, I was not the most comfortable doing those Hip Hop Ab moves at my folks’s place.

The Kettlebell, I still get to do every so often. I find it easier and more doable with my current living arrangements. Limited space in our cramped room filled with both our bed and my kiddo’s bunk bed, two dressers and other personal effects. Can you just imagine the disarray state of our current living quarters! Oh well, we’re counting a few more weeks and we will finally settle in our own above.

While I know these exercises are important, a beach-ready body will only be realizable if partnered with a diet that actually works. Crash diet is definitely not for me. Fad diets never really got me interested.
