Time to Shape Up

Finally! I had the will power to hit the gym this year. If the dinner with my friend Dina didn't happen, I wouldn't forced myself to go to Workout Fitness. Can you imagine me eating five spicy "lambay", two and a half plates of rice, "humba", "pancit", "lumpia" and two glasses of cold orange juice?! And it didn't happen once, another bountiful feast with her was granted the next day. On the third day, I convinced my office mates to eat where we had a delicious dinner with Dina. Again, I ate like there was no tomorrow. Oh my gosh! I could feel my whole body getting wider and bigger. For three consecutive days, I went to this eat all you can restaurant. It was very alarming (hmm.. I think that's a strong word) to see how my body got chubbier and heavier and I'm telling you it's not pretty.

Everything happens for a reason. I got to experience to feel my weight, to feel depressed most of the time and to had so low self-esteem for me to realize how important to have a healthy lifestyle. I can't stand not to do anything about it.

Let me share few of my photos taken at Workout Fitness Center. I've been in the gym for four months now and I don't have any plans to quit. (Oh Lord, blind me from laziness!)

Very serious trying to get some abs :)

I love when I'm working out because I feel happier. When things aren't going so well sometimes at work, one hour of Aerobics, dancing Psy's popular "Gentleman", carrying those dumbbells really help me de-stress. My confidence gets better and my body gets healthier and more toned. I also achieved softer and smoother skin. I can't mention all the good benefits exercise has given me. This is one thing for sure, I am starting to live a happier life.

Find time to exercise my lady friends. It's time to shape up and embrace your true potential of becoming more beautiful inside and out. You can do it!

Mary Kay Office in Cebu

Most of my customers are curious where the Mary Kay office is located here in Cebu and how does it look like. So I decided to take pictures. (By the way, I asked permission first from the staff) This is not to advertise or anything goes like that.

I took these photos yesterday when I dropped by the office to pick up my orders.


Ground Floor Cebu Capitol Commercial
Complex N. Escario St., Brgy.
Camputhaw, Cebu City
Tel. No.: (032) 254-8081
Fax: (032) 253-4661


Meet this friendly man, name is Sir Lito. While he's busy preparing my orders, I asked him to give me a quick pose.

Whenever I visit this office, it really feels like I'm in the right place. The people are very welcoming and we share the same passion. I'm so blessed to have Mary Kay in my life. Wanna check what Mary Kay gave me yesterday? A PINK JACKET! Hopefully the pink car will be the next one. I know, I know, I still have a long way, but isn't it exciting?! We'll never know. ;)

Let me share their Facebook page here

My Skincare Basics

How do you take good care of your skin? Do you just leave your skin unprotected against the sun? Do you sleep with your make up on? If that's the case, then you're kind of close to premature aging and wrinkles. Let me give you my little knowledge about skin care basics. It's very essential to achieve a healthy and glowing skin. 

1. Cleanse - Before going to bed I really make sure I remove my makeup and any impurities found in my face. What I use is a cleanser that gives me 3 benefits. It cleanses, exfoliates and freshens. It's the one from Mary Kay, the TimeWise 3-In-1  Cleanser. It deeply cleanses and removes dead skin surface cells. It also refines my pores!

2. Moisturize - I have an oily face but when I started working in an air conditioned facility my skin looked very dry. To restore the normal moisture of my face I use an age fighting moisturizer. Still from Mary Kay, it's the TimeWise Age Fighting Moisturizer.(you know, I'm not getting any younger) It softens my skin and I love it. It's actually one of my favorites. 

3. Protect - Does anybody know that by using foundation is a fantastic way of protecting your skin from further damage? (given your're using a quality foundation) Yes, you're right. I'm an avid user of Mary Kay's TimeWise Liquid Foundation. The matte one. It has Vitamin E and has a collagen-building peptides ingredient. It doesn't even feel heavy on my face. 

There you go! It's very simple. Whatever skincare brands you're using right now, the important thing is you really take good care of yourself. Consistent use of quality products is recommended. Get glowing and boost your confidence with a healthy skin.
