I get sentimental

Waking up early, always gets me thinking about things. My three girls are still asleep. Looking at them sleeping soundly fills my heart with so much peace and thankfulness to You God. And then, swift as a deer my thoughts shifted to the future. My children are still young and so they still listen to me. Later on when they are already grown up they will learn to assert themselves, make decisions on their own, make choices that may not coincide with my idea of what's best for them. It is overwhelming.

So my prayer is that may God help me and the husband raise our children well. May we raise them with values of goodness, persistence, industry, a strong faith in God Almighty. May we also be able to impart to them and mold them how to stand by their principles.

It is overwhelming. But then again, prayer helps.

S and R, Bonifacio Global City

Yesterday, the girls and I were doing our grocery shopping at S and R, Bonifacio Global City. I would have wanted it to be at Metro, Market Market but the traffic was so bad along the parkway so I drove straight ahead.  Anyway, to cut the story short I left my wallet on the pushcart and remembered it only upon arriving home.  I immediately returned back and told the guard at the entrance that I left my wallet on a cart at the 2nd level parking.  The guard very kindly assisted me to park in the reserved space near the entrance and told me to go directly to membership area. At the membership, the staff who attended my request called up the headguard and lo and behold the guard who earlier assisted me to load up the groceries in my car was actually the headguard.  But he insisted that they did not found anything and that perhaps I should checked my car and the groceries because I might just have misplaced it there. I insisted that it could not be because i specifically remember putting it on the cart while going up the ramp, leaving the car at the covered walkway to get my car. I didn't alight anymore from the car because they were already loading the groceries at the back that's why i forgot my wallet. Anyway, the guard said he will accompany me at the 2nd level parking and that he also called up the other guard who assisted me who also said that he didn't see anything.  I insisted that perhaps they could also ask the employee who is incharge of putting all the pushcart back down.  The guy came up and also said that he really didn't saw anything also but that they didn't return any pushcart below yet. Maybe, my husband's persistence rubbed up on me , I insisted on checking the carts myself.  So I went through all the pushcarts parked on the side and there it is, my wallet!

It's really my fault to be forgetful or careless, however you may call it. But since S and R is a membership shopping store, my expectation was that they would be more polite and accomodating than SM or other department stores. And I was right so this post is a heads-up to the guards, the membership staff, and the one who takes care of the pushcart.  Nobody else found my wallet but me, but every person that I approached was kind and accomodating so again, this post is a thumbs up for them.

Also, I was praying all the way on the drive back towards S and R.  Thank you God.

Battle With the Bulge

The other day, when i went to STI-Delos Santos Megaclinic for a papsmear i spotted the platform scale vacant so i weighed myself.  I gained a pound more at 126.  Yesterday when I was having my hear treated at Reyes Hair Center, I was dismayed by the bulges in my tummy.  It's more like inches now.

I do get the idea that weight loss can only happen when you refrain from eating more than the usual and increase in physical activity.  It has been in my goal list to at be at my pre-pregnancy weight at 115 lbs. Partly to blame is my laziness.  I bought a wii sports but i seldom use it. And i have been eating too many chocolates these past weeks. I mean , I am not complaining. I'm just writing out loud the things that are helping me gain weight. I think eating is not the problem.  It's the lack of physical activity that's really more of the factor.

So, I am setting this publicly that my weight goal is to be at 115 lbs.  To achieve that, I will need to
  • use the wii, saturdays and sundays for at least an hour
  • register at least 4,000 steps on my pedometer daily
  • cut back on my chocolate consumption atleast, only twice a month
  • drink lots of water instead of juice
  • no more carbonated sodas
I really hope this will work.
