I am Gaining Weight

I have gained the weight that I have lost last April. May was not a good month for me and for my whole family here in the US. It was pretty much a very stressful month. Now, I am starting all over again. I have been cutting back the amount of carbohydrates intake every meal. Currently, I am 107 lbs. I was below 100 just a couple of months ago. Hoping to get back on the right track this time. I will be eating a lot of fresh caught fish recipes this summer.

Ticks Scare

We have a bumper crop of ticks this year. Even when we keep the grass in the yard low, we can’t go out of the house without finding ticks on our bodies. My hubby and I have to check each other’s body for ticks every night before going to bed. Actually, I am getting paranoid, I always feel ticks crawling on my skin whether they are there or not. We are taking extra precautions not to get bit by a tick. It’s very difficult here to get sick because it is hard to get antibiotics.

My hubby has had Lyme …

Digital Bathroom Scale

This is the coolest bathroom scale I have ever seen. Not only is it’s sleek, modern style, eye catching it is also the most precise and accurate scale I have ever tried. We haven’t been shopping for a bathroom scale recently so I don’t know if weighing down to 1/10th of a pound is a big deal or not but the repeatability and accuracy of the readings are really amazing.

Both my hubby and I stepped on and off multiple times, and always got the same number. Turning the scale on is very easy, no more switches or tapping are …

Low Carb Diet

Spring has finally sprung here in northern Minnesota. I am really excited to get back outdoors, start my gardening and do some fishing. About a week ago, I finally got serious about losing weight. I put myself on a low carb diet and I do the Zumba exercise at least every other day. I did a 20 minute Zumba yesterday and it felt really good. I have learned over the years that the most effective way to get into shape is through healthy eating and exercise. Since I love dancing, I chose Zumba as my exercise routine.

Both my hubby …

Sick Again!

Both my hubby and I got sick again. We are having chest cold and sore throat. It is our third time around that we both got sick since we arrived here in my native country, the Philippines. First, we both got flu then he suffered from a lizard’s eye while I suffered from some kind of skin rashes. We can’t wait to get over with these health issues. I am so tired of dealing with these kinds of problems. We have been here for over a month now and we should have already adapted to the climate here.

Usually, it …

Need to Fix My Tooth Soon!

One of these days, I need to make an appointment with my dentist. I still have almost two months before I go back home but I want to get my tooth fix done. My hubby has been wanting to get it fixed seven years ago but I put it off because I found it very pricey. Besides, it is not that visible when I smile but now, the more I think about it, the more I wanted to have a bridge. I am also thinking about getting teeth cleaning but we’ll see if I will be able to fit it …

Feeling Down

Occasionally I feel down but not as often or severe during the summer season. I have had regular bouts of feeling down as recently as last night. It happened after our long trip to Minneapolis. My hubby’s disappointing dental appointment fueled up my already tired and sleepy condition. I am feeling OK now but at that time, I felt like going somewhere and disappear. I was even thinking about deleting my Facebook account because I did not want to interact with somebody else but my hubby. Fortunately, my hubby is always there by my side whenever I need a shoulder …
