I want to GLOW!
I want to be VAIN!
I want to look FABULOUS!
What happened to me you might ask! Well.. it has been a long time that I want to feel that way but yesterday was the AHA moment. I went to a spa for a facial and the receptionist looked so BEAUTIFUL! Her spotless skin and perfect light makeup shocked me π― I want to look like that too! Not to be the prettiest girl in the world, not to pretend to be perfect, but to FEEL GOOD FOR ME! Β Why I don’t take care myself more? Why I have to look miserable all the time? Why I forgot the fun of being a girly girl? Okay. That stops HERE TODAY!

More to come when I figure out a routine that will work! π I’m so excited!!!
Yesterday I didn’t work AGAIN!!! this is dangerous :evil:, I still have to wrap up some work before I leave. I went to the embassy to pick up my passport and then went to the spa HELA! I knew I was going to have a late lunch so a voluminous breakfast! π
I got another shipment of nut butter!!! π Thanks to Naturally More people, I finally got to try these special PB. Why special? Because it’s fortified with flax seed, flax oil. While normal peanut butter is almost exclusively monounsaturated fat, Naturally More contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. It has fewer calories, 25% more protein, and 50% more fiber than regular brands.Β As I’m a big fan of flax meal, this sounds perfect for me ;). They sent me 2 jars of PB and 2 jars of AB and convenient packets!
this is Crazy Richard’s PB. Ingredient: Just Peanuts!
this is Naturally More PB. Ingredients: Roasted Peanuts, Wheat Germ, Flax seeds, Cane Sugar, Honey, Flax oil and egg whites.
Texture: It’s denser than Crazy Richard’s but still very smooth.
Taste: It’s slightly sweet, but just a touch of sweetness. I really like its taste. No addition is needed like it is in the case of Crazy Richard’s.
Coco’s rating: 4/5. Compared to Crazy Richard’s, I like this more in term of taste, but Crazy Richard’s simply ingredient list and texture.
This breakfast and a Heart Thrive suncake hold me until 4PM!
I had to face the reality that I can’t survive 3 days more with this empty fridge so I got some
Yes! I got NOW’s stevia after seeing Heather saying that’s her favorite. I also got some squash! I know I know I’m on a breakup with kabocha, but not with its cousins! π And that big stash Green tea is for my friend. That’s the only thing she asked me to bring her.
I made a quick sandwich and soup for lunch
4PM lunch spoiled my appetite for dinner. So just a quick stir-fry and 1/2 baked acorn squash.
1/4 as meal
1/4 as dessert 1
dessert 2 was one of my old favorite combo: greek yogurt + frozen strawberries
I haven’t had greek yogurt for >3 months. I missed it. Let’s see how my belly and skin stand it this time. π
