Eating Properly

Do you eat properly?

We have been eating mostly clean, raw, organic and/or minimally processed food lately. It is a trying process initially but once your taste buds adjusts, you will start to recognise the myriad of tastes of fruits and vegetables.

Most meals are home prepared or cooked. When eating out, we choose salads with lean meat that comes with the usual request of dressing on the side.

Admittedly, this is hard work. But like any other pact or commitment, some hard work and self-discipline are required. I was going to say self-respect, but that may seem too harsh!

The shock it does to the system! After a few days of such food and drinks, The Other Half and I are feeling less sluggish. Drop in body weight from cutting down sugar is a good consequence too. I was 52kg but now stand at 49kg. Just 1 more kg to pre-pregnancy weight.

The plan is to rebuild my stamina and muscles, tightening all those post-2-pregnancies flubber around the abs.

Are you with me? Let's do this for the sake of our little ones and family, beyond self-vanity.

Yes, that also means less cookies/arrow root chips binge come this Chinese New Year.
