The Dillema of Weights!


I’m getting fatter everyday and I hate it. My dillema is not the necessity to stop eating but the need for excercise to loose the fattenings. (haha…)

So, how do I get to do the thinning cycle when I don’t have the time ( or so, i think!) to excercise and be fit?

With this dillema comes the plan (or hopeful plan…) to get fit and lose weight, and hopefully stay thin for awhile.

The only funny thing I guess is the idea of me wanting to get some meat in me that I started to eat much, eat whatever things to gain weight and look good in it. But I guess, like anyone would say, We don’t get satisfied over it that we tend to have more…and more…and more!

So, when my tummy gets wider and my face gets round, people advises me to lose weight, others would say to stay at that point – dont go over or beyond that scale. ( As if that will happen!)

But with all this, I guess my own problem is that I dont eat the right food, and has a sleaky diet. My co-worker and friend Kathy told me to be careful with the things I eat because I’m always having LBM and I’d say yes, she’s correct. (Ouch!)

Friends, I’ve written this blog to document everything for my goal before the year ends – lose weight and be fit.

From time to time, I’ll be posting something about the things I’m doing to be focus and be adamant in losing weight. So, if anyone’s reading this and thinks I’m bluffing, we’ll see in the last Day of December 2008. Hehehe… I’m up for the challenge!

Rumors and Me…

It has been bothering me for quite some time about some rumors that I heared about me. Although friends told me to let it pass by,I can’t possibly do that.

The reason for my choice is because it is affecting me too personally. I hate it when I’mbeing talked about and not just talk but really being pulled down and degraded for such selfish reasons.

I have to admit that I have no holds if someone speaks bad about me, but wouldn’tbe those guys be considerate enough to take me out on their lists as “hot”topics?

If ever, just assuming,I did something wrong to these people,”I’m sorry…” is what I can offer, nothing more – no apologies,no more explaining and definitely no more bargaining.

Peace Out.

Words from the UNIGAMES…

I had the opportunity to watch the opening of the University Games and it was really good! Although the program is the typical opening ceremony of any games, I got something out of it!

Actually it is because of what the 2 commissioners said that made my ears listen to their talks.

First of is what Akiko Thomson, a former swimmer and currently one of the commissioners present in the opening of the 13th Philippine University Games shared about being an athlete, young and having lots of opportunity as being part of a collegiate sports. I’d say she’s not just beautiful and tall, but a woman full of passion and wisdom when it comes to teenage life. A good quote from her yesterday was ” You should play fairly, in life and in sports because it’s the only honorable thing to do…”

Another Commissioner was present at the opening, Mr. Eric Loretizo, former Visayan Times Sports Editor and currently part of the Philippines Sports Commission shares about the importance of having AIM in life –

Aspire for Excellence
Inspire Others
Motivate Others

Well, I was once a sports enthusiast and I’d say that sports really develops not just the physical in us but the discipline of daily living. It was still the opening ceremony and I’m interested more to see who wins this year for some particular sports I have my eyes on.

Catch you at the UNIGAMES!

The Easy Life

I always want the easier things in life. But I find it impossible to achieve or even pursue. Life, as we all know comes with hardship and pruning. There is no such thing as easy life, for me it’s a mirage of a man who wants to escape responsibility, accountability and dependability. Although the 3 are interconnected, they are in a way, bit different from one character to another.

Responsibility is having the state to be liable to be called on to answer something done in the past or present, good or bad. Our generation nowadays seems to think more on how to escape punishment rather than face them. I guess it’s not the fear of being scolded that drives this but the shame it can bring to our egoistic personality we present to people.

Accountability on the other hand is the state of being capable to being accounted for. It’s the idea that as a grown up individual, our parents can trust us with something they believe we can handle and can get accounted for. I don’t know about the rest, but this is exciting – Parents trusting us rather than always grumbling about us!

Dependability or being reliable is being suitable to rely on. It’s the opportunity to share and speak out our minds and people listen, whether old or young alike. This includes not just knowledge of things, but wisdom coming from our own experiences and how we dealt with any circumstances in our life. It’s being bubbly yet wise with our words.

What’s the use of sharing the 3 things I believe lacks in having an easy life?

Well, it’s because easy living relates to being immature. Period. Immaturity is not the state of being old without knowing anything but it’s the reality that with our age, it seems that we lack responsibility to live for the expectations of our family and love ones, the accountability to accept mistakes and make changes for the better, not just accepting our faults but straightening everything up and lastly, to be reliable or dependable to the words and advise we give because we’ve been there and learned so many things when we grew up.

My challenge for all of us is to live not the easy life but in every day, we face challenges and not escape them! Thanks for reading!
