Confidence doesn't come from your appearance, it comes from how you feel

Confidence doesn't come from your appearance, it comes from how you feel

✒ Blog ✒

 

Confidence doesn't come from your appearance, it comes from how you feel. 
This photo here, if you asked me 10 years ago, how do I look? I could point out at least 10 things I am not happy about. Today, I accept this is how I look after 2 kids, I focus on how I feel instead of how I look. 
Flipping through magazines, checking social media there are always ideal or desired bodies figures of which we admire. We hope we could look like them! The truth is, even super models, they are not happy with their figures and still see what they consider, flaws. So who set these standards on how we should look? We used to rely on scales to tell ourselves if we are standard. In recent years we have been educated to non-scale victories. 
Now this is the question, what is the perfect body you want? There is no set answer. Beauty comes in all shapes. Not everyone looks better when they are slimmer. What I believe is, if you eat right, exercise regularly, take care and look after yourself both physically and mentally, you feel good, you feel confident, that's much more important then what size you are. 
Being healthy and happy definitely come first. If you could look the way you like, but feeling crappy within, is it worth it? 
Being on a keto way of living I have learnt everyone's body is different. You need to see and appreciate what you have first, then set your goals so you are not working on "Someone else standard, but your own". Remember, this is your life, your body, your mind❤

A topic most of us have been through or going through. Coming from an Asian background, I constantly receive comments like "Oh all Asian are skinny", " You guys never put on weight " etc. The reality is, I wish it is the case😆. Back to when I was a teenager, we were trained/brainwashed into competition amongst family, friends and peers. "I wish I can be slim like her", " I wish I can be 45kgs", I wish I can have tiny waist like her" etc. Today, I am glad to say, I am happy with my current size, it doesn't matter if the scales is not showing me numbers on what "Society think is right", it doesn't matter that I am not a size 6, 4 or less, it doesn't matter that I don't have tone legs and arms like a supermodel, it doesn't matter I don't have abs like an athlete. 
However, it DOES MATTER I FEEL CONFIDENT about myself, it DOES MATTER how I FEEL GOOD about myself, it DOES MATTER my HEALTH is getting better, it DOES MATTER I LISTEN TO MY BODY and not exhausting it, it DOES MATTER I LOVE MYSELF and will take "Self Care Time"
There are so many different standards to define "Fitness & Beauty". The one thing you need to come to realize is if you don't see the good in yourself, you will never be good enough.
.
Start learning to appreciate yourself, everyone has strengths and weaknesses, no one is perfect but that's ok, because we are perfectly human.

Keto Life

Keto Life

Sound familiar? I believe most of us at some point of our Keto journey would have said some like this at least once. We blame ourself how we had that apple, we stress out how much weight we will be putting on after that feast, we feel so guilty we had a slice of cake  at our best friend wedding. Let me tell you something, listen carefully, tomorrow it will be a new day, and YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO HOSPITAL AND YOU WILL SURVIVE! Remember, being on Keto doesn't mean you have to punish yourself by not celebrating with friends who aren't Keto, being Keto doesn't mean you should not go holiday and enjoy some non keto food. Being Keto means you are more mindful on what food does to our body, we understand what are the consequences if we eat non Keto food, we may go through Keto Flu, we may feel bloated, we may feel sick, or, just nothing happen. If you decide to live a Keto way of eating, you need to come to understand we all do have some non Keto food on some occasions, but then the next day we will get back on. As long as you don't let the old bad habit creep back in, then Keto life is still on. ✌

How 3.5 week travelling/Indulging affects my body

How 3.5 week travelling/Indulging affects my body

How 3.5 weeks of indulging affects my body
In January I came back from a 3.5 weeks of holiday, it involved lots and lots of meetings with people, friends and families. I was in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. 6 different locations with uncountable temptations (in foods). During the trip I gained 4.5 kgs which, honestly was much less than I expected because I been ate from 9am till 12am midnight most days. 
So how was it like to travel with Keto lifestyle in my mind?
In the first week my mind was still strong, I ate mostly Keto but maybe 5 times more than usual. I did have a bit of sweets/carbs here and there to try out something new. From the second week onward, I begin to allow myself to have bit more carb and sweet. Overall the whole trip I have stuck to Keto 50%.
The thing is, I was very disciplined before the trip, the 3.5 weeks of changing foods, it has effected my body quite dramatically, I believe different environment also partly responsible. (This is my personal experience which doesn't apply to everyone)
What happened (to my body/health)?
1. First time in a year my period was delay by 3 weeks
2. My face started having lots of flat pimples
3. I begin to experience stomach issue which, I haven't had since I started Keto
4. I had the worst flu and took over a week to fully recover. Whilst on Keto my flu usually took a couple days to recover
5. I felt tried and sleepy all the time
6. I craved for carb and sugary food, I was always hungry even though I was eating constantly
To be honest I am really suprised with how much my body reacted. I didn't think by eating differently for 3.5 weeks could do so cause so many changes to my body. I'm glad to be back on my Keto journey after a bit of sidetracking.

Why Keto?

Why Keto?

Hi everyone! Today I want to share some of my own experience and reasons why I chosen Keto as a lifestyle.
Keto has change and help me in so many ways which I couldn't stop spreading the words to others! 
At my beginning stage of Keto journey I only take it like another option of diet , which I been through probably at least a dozen other types. My health was in a terrible shape and I can't afford to live like that with two very young children. One day I start knowing about Keto, did tons of research plus a nutrition course( Yes I am the type need to know what's going on before I committed 😝)before I said yes I will give it a try because it is a diet that is against to what we been taught in the past.
Fast forward 2 years later, I have learn so much about how food can effects us physically and mentally. With Keto Way Of Eating you will notice the changes in how you value food, how nourish your body with whole food can effect you mentally, how much energy you can get with eating the right food, how you discover this amazing version of yourself which you didn't know exist, how you no longer rely on numbers to make you feel your progress is worth it, non scale victory beat all those figures! We also will notice how we can ignore those negative comments from others who don't understand Keto . What matter is we are on it, we feel and see the different, that's all you need to care about. Progress and result are the best way to show people your determination is worth it. So keep your head up, give yourself a pat on the shoulder, tell yourself to stay focus, Keto is worth it❤

Do it becasue you want to

Do it becasue you want to

Do it because you want to-
When it comes to setting goals that are new, you need a plan, motivation and determination to get there. It is important you understand you "want to do it" instead of " Everyone else is doing it, I need to do it too".  Keep your progress in check, if one way does not yield results look for another, allow yourself to make mistakes but learn from your mistakes. Try not to compare your progress to other, surround yourself with strong, determine and, positive people. This always make your journey easier.
It is hard to stay positive and strong at times, but we all have the ability to make it work, it comes down to "do it now or later?" Later never happens.
If you put the effort in, results will show. Give it time, stop making excuses, do more, talk less.
