Welcome to My CRIB

  1. Oh dear!

    I have been out in awhile to do some blogging stuff and the like. And honestly, i miss doing so. I have struggles in the past months that’s why blogging have been neglected but today, i am thinking that finally, i can do it again! God must be good to me all this time.

    My blogsite www.kaartehanstudio.com was down intentionally. I already transfered all blog entries to this tumblr account because my hardwork of writing will soon be put into waste if i will not do so..

    But today is such a happy day because i already found someone to rebuild a new blogsite but my heart still belongs to my old one because i have been very hardworking in putting it up. But if God will not permit it, i will be happy also. I guess, the blogsite was really not meant for me in the 1st place. ;)

    Please please wait for my newly put up blogsite. I will be meeting with a trusted website designer for it to make into a reality. but for now, i will be happy to share my discovery starting today and moving forward.

    Happy Sunday!!! 😀😊😍

  9. Fitness Diary: Week 3/General Motors Diet

    Sorry to be out for a long time, you know that i am super busy about my fitness routine and also i am kinda preparing for my next week summer vacation. Since i do promise you to give you an update every week, here’s my 3rd week progress. You all know that i have been very serious since day 1 about loosing weight. From last week weight of 50kg, am down to 47.9kg already and my waist is back to 26inches as well.. I am so happy with the results it gave me and surprisingly i survived and never being tempted to eat a lot. Most of my friends were asking me what is GM diet all about. I heard this many times and planned this many times as well but this time i had the guts to do it with the motivation of some of my lovely friends. If you wanna know more about this diet you can visit GM Diet. Here’s a peak of my week meal plan:

    image

    From left up to bottom right: Papaya, watermelon shake, toge, boiled sweet potato and cucumber with singkamas, fresh watermelon

    image

    From left up to bottom right: chopseuy, grilled tomato and beef chelo, sassy water, banana with non-fat milk and apples with melon
    I admit that this is the hardest diet i experienced, oftentimes i get dizzy and i had  to drink a lot of water but i love the results it gave me. At night, i drink the sassy water as my anti-bloat regimen. For my fourth week, i decided to continue of course. Our meal plan should be more exercise and protein to feed our muscles, we are now on the toning part. I need to tone my muscles since i already lost a lot. But to do this, my weight would be on the 50kg side because we should eat one meal a day but i don’t wanna inject any kind of carbs, salt and  sodas. If i wanna eat more kcal, I should burn them immediately. Thank goodness that the answers to my healthy living is very near me! If i can’t think of any food to take, i can now rush at Juju Eats in Eastwood to have a happy tummy.

    I hope that my journey will be an inspiration to you as you wanted to try to live healthy and become fit! Happy Journey!

  11. Fitness Diary: Week 2/Tasteless Meal

    Hello there fitness buddies! After finishing my NO CARBS week, i lost almost 2kg from it. From 54.5kg when i started, i weighed 52.9kg as i started my tasteless  meal plan last week. I promised to tell you the story of my diet and fitness routine every week. Again, i owed my entire loosing (weight loss) to all my fitness buddy, the group i have on facebook. You can message me your email address if you want to see the result of my progress.

    The meal plan for 6 days, all are tasteless, no seasoning of whatsoever.
    When i looked at the meal plan that i will be preparing, i feel kinda excited because it is my very first time to really get so serious on my diet routine, i am talking about healthy diet here. The 2nd week meal plan is kinda boring, yes, there were times i had wished that i can eat a meal with condiments because i am really a fan of fish sauce and the like.

    image

    If you really want to have a serious diet, you need to learn to shop for yourself. So, i bought my ingredients for the week and yes, being on a diet, you should shell out a little amount and time as well.
    This meal plan is a balanced diet of fruits, veggies and protein, again, no heavy carbs for this week so that it will be more easier for us to burn all the food. Diet takes time, hard-work and perseverance, it is not about just eating the diet meal but also burning all the unnecessary fats we have in our body. If we just eat, eat and we don’t let it burn, our routine will not be successful either. That is why, as soon as i started my routine i also did some workout routines at home and at the gym. At home, i did squats and crunches while at the gym i have a more intense 2hrs workout that involves cardio and equipments.

    image

    From up left to down right: oatmeal with non-fat milk, chicken fry in olive oil, steamed tilapia and veggies, corn and mushroom soup, boiled banana and soy milk and scrambled egg fry in olive oil.

    image

    From up left to down right: banana and apple, boiled banana and soy milk, chicken fry in olive oil with mango and zucchini, lettuce banana and chicken with italian dressing, watermelon, steamed veggies, lumpiang sariwa with kamote, singkamas, potatoes, carrots w/o sauce.
    I am happy to share with you the meal i created and eaten for the past 6 days during this meal plan. If you would ask me if i don’t get hungry? I don’t! Because i eat 5x a day. What i learned about having a fast metabolism is that we should eat on time so that our body will not go in starvation mode. Starvation mode, most of the time allows our body to slow down the metabolism and it tends our body to get fat. So better eat small frequent healthy meal. Today is the start of my General Motors diet, another different meal plan for the week. Again, i promise to share this with you as soon as i finished the week. I will be so glad to share with you my progress in a more private way so if you want to see this, please do message me your email address. -xoxo-

  13. Fitness Diary: Week 1/NO CARBS Diet

    I was really planning even before to start living healthy and fit but the will to eliminate rice is very hard in my kind of work because i am always out in the field and for sure you will agree that eating brings a lot of happiness. When i was younger, my body weighs at 45kg but as i aged my heaviest is at 54.5kg, it may sound lighter for a few but given that i am a 5’1 inch tall, 54.5kg is fat already or according to my BMi, i am already obese. My body tends to adjust quickly, i gain easily and lose easily as well which is i hate the most! I miss my younger body where i can eat on a buffet but never gain weight fast. Again since i am starting to age a bit, ou body tends to be a little weaker in those areas, that’s why, serious diet and exercise are needed.

    My best friends and i planned to have our summer vacation in Boracay this May. And i am a little pressure because i gained a little pounds and i don’t want to walk around Boracay always on a stomach in just to look good on my swimsuits. You know, Boracay is Boracay. Anyhoo, while i was browsing my facebook timeline i saw some friends on a diet and asked them to share with me their routines and all. So they just added me to a secret group, this group is intended for women only. The goal of the group is to monitor each others progress in terms of food intake and exercise, an experienced diet buddy will share strategies about what is the most effective diet she tried over the years. The moment i joined, they were 1 week advanced when they started since i am new, i need to fast track my diet routine. Its not hard for me to fast track since i also started to have my own routines but this group is just so different because i tend to be more concious about what to eat because i need to share it to the group as well.

    image

    These were the only food i ate over the week.
    We are done on our NO CARBS routine already. And yes, i am so happy that i already said goodbye to rice. And its not that its done like that and hey i am thin again, to be more fit and lean, i enrolled to a 2months fitness class so i can totally say goodbye to my fat life! We tend not to understand that fat is not like bulgy and bulky body but if we tend to look on our body mass index, there were certain percentage that a body is fat already without you knowing it. Like me, people tend to say that i am not yet fat but on my BMI it already said that my body has a 30% fat or should i say 15kg fat excess, close enough to obesity. I am so happy that i did everything good and well. I already finished a week and i am so glad that i feel lighter afterwards, and i am looking forward to being healthy and fit. On our 2nd week, ur routine is the General Motors diet and the insanity workout. I will soon share about it after i finished the routine. TIA. Share with me what is your fitness or diet routine?

  17. Sampleroomph: Vidal Sassoon Premium Color Care

    Since i decided to get blogging seriously, i also take time reading other blogs also to get some inspiration (read about me page to know my favorite bloggers). While i was reading Julia’s blog, a small advertisement on her blog caught my attention.

    image

    So i opened the link to know what is all about. I am talking about Sample Room, who would ever not caught attention hearing this website. Yes, i know what you are thinking, and yes again, everything in here are all sample products. You don’t need to pay for the products to get a sample but you have to shoulder the shipping fee instead. Samples are available in sample size and even on stock size. You have to frequently visit the site so you’ll know what are the new samples they have because in a few days, hours, samples are easily gets out-of-stock. Plus you need to earn points to shop from their site but overall, if you are like me, Sample Room is heaven to me! Easy shopping and they will deliver it on time once you paid the SF.

    Since i have a permed and color treated hair, this one got my attention. Its a leave-on conditioner that protects hair from damage due to hair color. Honestly i got a dry hair because of digital perm and hair coloring, there were moments that i have a hard time combing my hair but Vidal Sassoon helps my hair to soften.

    image

    For this large tube, it lasts me about two months or so. I am planning to buy this when i ran out or go to Sample Room to get another, otherwise, if you have permed color-treated hair, this one do wonders! You can purchase this to any Watsons and SM Department Store. Disclaimer: Product review based on my personal purchase unless stated otherwise.

  19. Bifesta Bright Up Cleansing Lotion

    Yesterday was a bit tiring. While i was removing my make-up my Ipad doesn’t stop popping for new messages from my imessage, viber, instagram and twitter notifications. To my surprised, i received a very good vibe monday and i can say it’s all worth the tiring day.

    image

    I won a new pair of my all time favorite foldable flat shoes for taking a snapshot of my newly bought pair last sunday at the Manila Sundance Bazaar. I felt really happy because I have been rewarded for being such a loyalist. Again, i don’t buy any other flat shoes. I don’t even have a Tory flat but i am wishing still to have one but totally I am very satisfied with my Poshies. Anyhoo, i just wanted to share my rare moment like this. But i wanted to have a review on my newly purchase Bifesta Cleansing Lotion. I was using Pond’s cold cream for a very long time to remove my make-up and honestly it was kinda greasy in a cream form but it does removed my everyday make-up or even a heavy make-up. However, i was thinking of switching to a more fresher make-up remover so I was like finding a water based remover. My first choice is Bioderma since it is the most popular cleansing water but my budget won’t permits me. One day, i was walking in Watsons Robinson’s Place Malolos and again, window shopping for what i can buy.

    image

    INGREDIENTS: Water, PEG-7, Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG-6, Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Phenoxyethanol, PCA Ethyl Cocoyal Arginate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Hydroxylated Lecithin, Glycerin Butylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate (php 419, WATSONS)
    Since i was really on search for a make-up remover i found this Bifesta Bright Up Cleansing Water, actually there were 4 variants of this but this one caught my attention because i have normal to dry skin, this one is perfect for me while other variants are for Moist (dry and sensitive skin), Sebum (combination-oily), Brightup (dull and flaky), and Agecare (mature). I am really happy finding a more cheaper version of Bioderma which both promises to remove make-up in a gentle and more hydrated way. I used cotton pads to remove my make-up and for the hardest to remove part which is eyeshadow and mascara, hold the cotton pad for awhile then gently wipe off the make-up. This cleansing lotion really do wonders on my face, its non-greasy vs other oil based make-up remover plus it gave me a refreshing feeling from a very tiring day at work. So there you go Lovies! Hope this post is relevant for you. Until my next post! Disclaimer: Product review based on my personal purchase unless stated otherwise.
