I spent half of the day at the Ayala Center Mall with Leo. We really did not have anything planned. Since going out of town is out of the question, we went to the mall to escape the searing heat.
I bought a nice blouse and window-shopped for bags. I saw this really nice bag at Girbaud but it was too expensive. Maybe next month. However, I did buy Leo his thumb ring at some silver store.
When Leo dropped me off, I planted myself in front of the TV and browsed some shows. While waiting for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to start, I browsed through other stations and paused when I saw these group of large people weighing themselves. I figured that this must be the new show that my friends have been telling me about -- "The Biggest Loser".
I remember last year when I was also enrolled at a really classy gym, I was watching a show with the same format at Discovery Channel although I can't remember the title now. It was so inspiring that it really made me want to lose weight. Anyway, I totally forgot about Queer Eye and kept the channel locked on RPN 9 waiting for updates on the show. Hopefully this can encourage me to lose the much needed weight.
The weather is not helping with my plan. The heat is making me crave for the cold stuff--ice cream, halo-halo and other high sweet stuff. Really bad but I'm trying to control my sugar intake now. I'm glad Starbuck's came out with the Low Calorie Frap. I hope that it won't hurt me too much if I drink that.
At least now, I'm very conscious with what I eat. When I was watching TV the other day and saw a station featuring how Lechon was being made, I wanted to throw up. I could just imagine all the cholesterol and oil in there. Heck, I also wanted to throw up when I saw Tocino was being served for breakfast today (but I valiantly ate some of it. It WAS after all, my favorite food).
I still have a LONG way to go. My pregnant sister-in-law is also on a diet since her doctor said she has some sort of problem with her sugar. Hopefully we can do this together (and also my officemate who has a similar dilemma as mine).
Here's to becoming another big loser.
