A Different View

Write. Stop. Hibernate. Repeat.  This has been a vicious cycle for this blog.  For some reason I cannot bring myself over the hill and get on smooth sailing.  I have all it inside my head but putting words to motion is elusive. In retrospect, I think along with my blogging, my life seem to be…

working-out

  As promised, Im writing about my latest work-out discovery, the Zumba.  I first heard this from friends abroad.  They say that doing the zumba aside from being so much fun, it also really works up a ton of sweat. Sweat and fun…two magic words that sold me out.  Bingo!  Exactly what I need.  Immediately…

medical faux pas

i just got back from my 3rd therapy session today.  i guess its true what they say that once you pass the 2nd session, a great deal of change can be felt.  yep. i feel much better now.  my back feels so much lighter.  in my previous post, i wrote about being in great pain…

pain

for days now, i have been in constant pain.  for almost a month now i have been complaining about back aches.  first it was on the upper part.  thinking that it as a manifestation of stress, i had regular massages every weekend.  but the pain didn’t ease.  instead, it seem to have worsened.  the gnawing…

soaptacular

                                                 the minute i tried the dove go energize beauty bar, i knew it to be an instant hit.  i absolutely love the way its lightly moisturizes my skin and the way the yummy-fruity-earthy scent lingers way after every bath.  plus, micro beads in it gently sloughs off dead cells, revealing a fresh, clean, glowing skin. so, goodbye…

confirmed case

confirmed!  marikina has one confirmed case of the dreaded A(H1N1) virus.  OMG.  two schools have already re-called their classes.  im still waiting for my son’s school to follow suit.  i hope they do it ASAP.  im really worried… according to doctors, although everyone can readily be inflicted with the flu, more suseptible ones are those…

health scare

recent news about a la salle student catching the A(N1H1) virus really scared me.  i can’t bear to think about the number of people the student has gotten contact with.  truly, this is a cause for a pandemic uproar. i fear for my kids.  though we all got our flu vaccine shots, i still worry…

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY (TRY IS THE KEY WORD) AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHN HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING…

Back to the Lab

Forgive me folks for being MIA (again).  I have been and out of the hospital these past couple of days.  No, I wasn’t really sick but had to undergo several tests to pin piont what’s wrong with me.  Frankly, I find it strange that I was diagnosed to be hypertensive while feeling or not showing…

Huffing & Puffing

I’m a bad girl these couple of days.  Haven’t been to the gym lately and I failed to watch my diet.  As a result, I gained 3 lbs in a matter of  five days. Tsk, tsk, tsk.  I don’t know what has come over me.  I guess it’s one of those phase where you find…
