thanks for this wonderful meme, very apt indeed, for after the so many “FOODSCAPADES” we have last holidays, i think i might not need to eat for this whole month to brush off the calories and the cholesterol i devoured into my tummy!
i am not a healthy person, as i always said, i am frail and sickly as a child, being a picky eater and a dad whose a carnivore, lol! my sibs only knew of pork/chicken as viands and we shun most of the vegetables my mom cooked. maybe, that’s when i acquired my iron deficiency which til now haunts me. i had my blood pressure checked before christmas, and was i glad i had 100/80, instead of the usual 90/70. for long, i’ve been dependent on iron supplements which i abhor because i always had stomach acidity and my constipation has gotten worst.
this year, i’m targeting a steady bp of at least 110/80. i am not on a special diet, i am free to eat everything’s on the table, thank goodness, i may be blessed with a good metabolism, though my BMI suggest i should be 48kls, i am maintaining my weight at 53-55kls, max! god and goddesses of food, HELP ME!!!
for most people, it is really hard not to feast on foods, esp. hubby who finds it very hard NOT TO EAT! last year, his sugar went overboard because his cholesterol reached a maximum high…he prefers not to take meds, will try to lose weight through exercise, he tells his doctor…sadly, he aint do any exercise at all and he eats like there’s no tomorrow! what shall i do? most of the times, we argued on the topic. i always tell him...”if you wanna see your kids grow… might as well make a double 360-turn on your eating habits.”
guess, i may be the cause of his voraciousness? what with the food served on our table???
hope every one shall have a blessed and healthful new year. there’s nothing like a jolly person without a healthy body and a sound and peaceful mind.
