The best way to start the year right: DIET

Somebody from the office gave hubby this Hollywood Cookie Diet. Does  the giver knows I need something like this?  I haven’t visited my former office for two years now? No one from PJI, except my husband, have seen me as big as this. I want them to remember the slimmer Miriam. 🙂 

The box contains 12 meal replacement cookies or let say a three-day supply for the serious weight watchers. But hey its only one box.  I might be needing tons of this to shed my excess pounds. Oh, boy.

There are other information here if you want to discover for yourself how this diet cookies work.  But before you do that health experts are warning prospective dieters to “always consult a physician before beginning any weight loss program.” They also cautioned pregnant women, those who are nursing, diabetic, taking medication or have a medical condition to avoid eating this cookies.

If I’m serious about losing weight I need to exercise and watch what I eat. If I consider exercise, that would be physically taxing for me since I can’t really move as fast as I should.  I need to cut down my carbohydrate intake especially rice. I also need to take enough rest. A six-hour of sleep a day is not bad for a busy mom like me. Now, I have something to look forward to in 2010…something to work hard for the New Year. 

I should begin motivating myself and set a goal. I’ve made my own mantra this morning. This is a good motivation to start with.

“I am aware that I’m stout.  I will begin to exercise and watch my diet.  I will do this for my health. I will do this for the love of my family.  And so it is!”

Spicy shrimp with malunggay leaves

I didn’t get over Marce Pehpot’s shrimp recipe so I tried it myself. Actually, I’ve already tried sauteing shrimp in butter and garlic, but added a twist to it. Thanks to Marce Pehpot’s suggestion of adding chili in it. Instead of the small hot chili pepper, I’ve added chili flakes so my little er big boy will appreciate the spicy taste. Here’s my version of spicy shrimp. By the way, I’ve added Malunggay leaves to the dish for color and make it more nutritious. You know the benefits Malunggay, right?
