Lazy Sunday

This is the first time that I am blogging using my phone. I still have to figure out how to insert photos. So for now, let us just let our imagination do the work.

My leg muscles are still sore due to the Tae-bo session last Friday. It has been months since I last attended a Tae-bo class. Hopefully, this will be my start to be back on track.

Since this is another laid-back Sunday, I just take things in a slower pace. I read the news this morning longer than the usual. I arranged my accessories that I somehow cluttered in my drawers during the week and I prepared the clothes that I’ll be wearing for the entire week. Since I am coming home late and leaving the house at dawn, this is my way of becoming more organized (hopefully!).

I am just waiting for the sun to set so I could have my late afternoon run/walk. I don’t want to end up having sunburn.

I really need to embrace healthy living. For this week, I have this short term goal of cutting down on my sugar intake. Phew!

    After reading your post, I felt compelled to comment. You will know why. Having read A to Z through your blogs, i have come to observe that you are pretty much a health conscious person.

    Earlier, I made myself a hot cup of my favorite PG Tips Tea. As i was mixing in Splenda, i was actually thinking of you, curious as to whether you use artificial sweetener yourself 🙂

    Of course, the substitution of regular sugar with zero-calorie sweetener is usually limited to customizable drinks, and desserts made at home. Here, in Starbucks, they do offer the option of drinks either unsweetened or artificially sweetened. But then again, the drink is not that tasty anymore. But one can get used to it after a while, knowing the measurable long term benefits it brings to staying healthy 🙂 In America, this is a big craze because a majority of the working professionals are very health conscious.

    My best friend here tells me that there is an even healthier option to the concept of zero-calorie sweeteners by choosing the all-natural ones – such as Truvia, instead of the more popular ones like Splenda, which is partially chemical in nature.

    On a side note, we drink our tea hot, with milk and sugar. Anything less is a foreign concept in our South Asian culture. You could say that we inherited this from the British. 🙂 Is this what folks in the Philippines pretty much refer to as “Milk Tea?” And, do you guys serve milk tea hot, cold, or both ways?

      Hi there!

      I am glad to know that you are taking time to read my blog entries.

      As you observed I am trying to adopt a healthy living but not in an extreme sense. I still eat food that I want to eat while trying to avoid junk foods.

      I don’t use artificial sweetener. I am just using brown sugar or honey as sweetener for my drinks. I also don’t count the calories that I intake. I am a sweet-tooth and I love chocolates, cakes, pastries, etc. – it is such a challenge resist those goodies.

      We drink our tea either hot or cold. Although milk teas are already grasping a good market here.

      Hope that I was able to answer your query. 🙂
