i survived 3 days
i'm here! i'm alive! i survived.
yesterday was the 3rd day and last day of my military diet. i think the last day of the program had the most miserable meals. yet, it was the easiest for me. i thought of food less, the urge to snack was less, and i wasn't as weak or as hungry or as shaking as the first two. i was a breeze, in fact.
the breakfast and lunch went by smoothly. we had dinner, however, with balikbayans on my husband's side of the family that i can't say no to. they had spaghetti, pansit, lechon manok, and a lot more i can't recall (because i had to avoid ogling). and let me...
2nd day of my military diet - pros and cons
i was a wreck on the 2nd day of my 3-day military diet. i was still hungry. i was a little weak. i didn't feel like doing any chore. and had no motivation to workout, not even do some walking.

for starters, i developed a skin...
ink scribbler calligraphy workshop
i was lucky to be given the opportunity to attend a calligraphy workshop today for free. yup, for free. thanks, lolit. i can't say that i have zero experience in calligraphy. i tried a little calligraphy back in college, but i just went as far as buying a calligraphy pen and that's it. i just like how the pen slanted which makes my handwriting calligraphy-ish.
so why calligraphy? i dunno... maybe seeing those nice inspirational quotes in instagram made me more interested in it. haha! besides, it's a nice skill to know, don't you think? maybe, just maybe, if i get really good at it, i...
