Extreme Makeover Weightloss Edition S03 ep13

I love Chris Powell (@realchrispowell) and his shows, the one I’m watching is Extreme Makeover Weightloss Ed. Season 3 from ‘abc’ but I’m using youtube to access it since it’s not available in my country.

Watched all seasons since last year, every one of them touching, inspiring and educational. This 13th episode from Season 3 with Bob is the warmest for me it made me me realize more about life. Because although all of the clients were overly passionate and hardworking, Bob made me realize more how there will always be problems: whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are. Problems will always be there, you’ll always feel it and see it, the thing with problems is that they come with solutions.

Being human, the way to move forward and be happier is to face problems one by one. To solve the one in front of you and move onto the next. Weight, looks, superficial, physical, emotional, material… whatever form it is, solve one first before moving onto the next.

That’s life and I guess Bob’s episode showed me that being honest with myself doesn’t have to be dramatic or heavy. Just ne honest, solve it, live then move on then solve the next one.

This is a touching reality show, I dont know Chris Powell personally but for him to have a show like this where real life is documented with real life problems  (not just weight) shared to the world and solutions offered to them is just mind-blowing and inspiring.

This guy hopefully is just as a nice guy in person as he is on TV because I admire how he just goes out there and how he knows how to handle people.

If I werent in my 20’s I’d say I wanna be just like him!

Last day @ 25

image

I dunno what to say. Tomorrow I’m no longer 25 and I don’t want to feel like… old. What is old anyway How does one feel old or young for that matter?

I went swimming earlier and it just happened that the pool was really crowded, I couldn’t do my laps properly. The lap pool was rented out..

I dont know if it’s okay for me to say this here but here goes, I can’t help but think of my 17-year-old self and how she would sneak or crash into that party to use that less crowded pool. Yes, I can make that happen if I were my 17-year-old self, but earlier I was just too lazy to get up and transfer pools mch more device a plan to befriend someone from there so I can use the lap pool and get my money’s worth… well I left after 30 minutes because I couldn’t stand the overcrowded resort.

Feeling young I guess is being someone who is willing to go that extra mile to wring out more from life because of yhe belief that life has so much more than what is presented. Old, I guess, is when you feel like you’ve wrung out what you think is enough for you. The -been there than that attitide- that makes us feel lethargic or less sparkly… an attitude which isn’t necessary in life, can be cured by ‘humility’.

And so… it’s times like this that I turn to my favorite author, Roald Dahl.

Have a great day everyone!

Honey cashew oats muffin :)

image

Honey cashew oats muffin. The catalyst for this random baking moment was a novel where the lead’s name was #Muffin (a dude which made it bizarre). I’m not really a muffin-person but the book had all 26 chapters titled after a muffin (blueberry, cherry, corn… muffin, yumm) it was impossible not to crave. I abandoned the book and decided to bake some since, 1. I dunno where to buy fresh muffins 2. I wanted particular flavors in it.

So here it is, the proof that I easily get distracted and that I always do well on my first try even unprepared. Kkk.


RECIPE

Ingredients dry: 1 1/2 cups quick oats, 1cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 3 tsp baking powder, nuts or raisins, 1/3 tsp salt

Wet: 1/3 cup oil, 1 egg, 1/3 cup honey, 1/2 cup milk, 2/3 tsp mayonaisse

Heat oven to 400F. Combine dry ingredient. Set aside. Combine wet ingredients thoroughly, mix in the dry ingredients. Put into muffin cups (makes 12 medium cups/ 7 large). Bake for 15-18 minutes.

Tip: to keep moist put in 1/2cup of water inside the oven (make sure your container is oven safe)

Enjoy!

working out with the walking dead

image

In the midst of my ‘the walking dead’ withdrawal when while working out I happen to switch onto fox to find a  TWD marathon. Seriously, anyway, it’s summer and to be able to achieve that summer bod we have to lay off junkfood… which is difficult to the extreme (well prolly not that extreme) but well… I’m having a hard time not touching junkfood. Heh. But will try harder!
