While waiting.. we are watching TV to keep him awake.

Strawberry Shortcake.. I love it..

Happy Birthday Gareth!! I am so happy to have you. WE LOVE You!

>All About Omega 3

>Yesterday I bought Omega 3 supplement because I just think that I need it. Here are some facts about Omega 3:

Omega-3 fats help you burn fat by helping your body respond better to a hormone called Leptin (Leptin is the Greek word for thin) and…

  • Leptin tells your body (your brain) to suppress your appetite making you eat less so you can maintain or lose weight and…
  • Leptin increases your metabolism by increasing your thyroid output (your thyroid regulates your metabolism) and on top of all that…
  • Leptin also causes your body to burn fat for energy so…

If your body isn’t responding well to Leptin then the reverse happens – You’ll be hungrier, and you’ll store more fat so… You can take Omega-3 fats to help your body respond much better to Leptin so you can increase your fat-burning metabolism

The best sources of Omega-3 fats are Omega-3 supplements or… You can also eat Salmon, tuna, herring, sardines, flaxseed, pecans, walnuts, hazelnut, butternut, mackerel, anchovies to get your Omega-3 fats and…

Here’s 3 more ways Omega-3 fats control your weight

  1. Omega-3 fats help you control your hunger by stabilizing your blood sugar levels and…
  2. An Australian study showed that when people took Omega-3 fats while on an exercise program burned more fat than people who Only Exercised (without taking Omega-3 fats) and people who exercised & took other types of fat and…
  3. Studies done in Japan & The Czech republic suggest that Omega-3 fats prevent the creation of ugly body fat and these same studies suggested Omega-3 fats promote more fat burning.

>Wet Day

>Its raining the whole day and without noticing it I sleep for almost 10 hours, too bad… it is cold and I am so lazy to wake up.

Gareth is lying beside me and he was also sleeping the whole afternoon. Since it seems a lazy day for me I start exercising and took a shower and now I am ready to work. Work until the sun rises tomorrow.

I pray and hope that the weather this coming Saturday is good for my weekend plan.

>I’m Still a Housewife….

>I slow down in working today because I think I need time to rest and think of some other things. Gareth birthday will be this coming Friday and we already had a plan and hopefully it will be perfect. I am also making my christmas list and hopefully I will find time to complete it.

List:

1. New Curtains
2. Dining Set
3. Inaanak Gifts
4. Siblings Gifts
5. Mama gift
6. Add Christmas Decor (balls and lights)

It is hard to become a housewife because you have to decide everything. You have to check if everything are in order. Since I am the only lady in the house I have to instruct my husband and my brother on how to clean and keep things in order. I am happy that they are following me. I don’t nag at them I am just blackmailing them. Like for my brother, if he will not follow my instructions I have to cut his allowance and it really works.

Well, my husband decided yesterday to start decorating. Our Christmas tree is now at our living area but he just assembled the tree and placed the decors but not in a proper format the way i wanted it to be. So tomorrow I will rearrange it and hopefully it will look nice.

Gareth is so amazed about the christmas tree and he keep on pulling the balls and ribbons. I know he don’t understand it yet but I wanted to make it as our tradition to place the tree before his birthday.

This is my life for today… not really a rest day but a housewife day…

>Remembering My Father

>

Since I was a kid I always love Gary V. music as influenced by my Tito Rey. When I found out about this video I am so eager to listen and it made me realize that I had the best father. I am so thankful to have him and I really miss him. Thanks Gary V. for this wonderful music…

>First Time

>

Today is Gareth first time to watch movie. We watch Madagascar 2 at SM Megamall. He loves cartoons and when we found out that it is already showing we immediately plan this event. He was laughing all the time and I was surprise because he don’t have tantrums inside the movie house. As a mom I am happy that my son appreciates it.

Toy Kingdom at SM Megamall offers 70% sales to some items and we can’t help but bought some toys.

When I offer something to Gareth he was not interested but when I gave Piglet to him, he immediately hug it and never put it down.

We also bought some Christmas presents for my siblings.

Christmas is stressful yet a very happy season and my favorite season of the year.

>The Kiss

>
I’ve been teaching Gareth on how to kiss. He knows how to kiss his teady bears so I started teaching him to kiss us but it seems that he was not yet ready. Until today while I am working he surprised me… he kiss me and it melts my heart. I wish I can capture it and post the actual picture.

I feel so lucky to be with him everyday because I can witness his developments. I am so proud of him and excited to witness more…

>Why oh Why?

>I don’t usually talk about politics here in my blog but eversince I am a follower about politics issues. When my father was still alive we always discuss about politics and we sometimes got a debate about politicians and I adore my father for not controlling my beliefs instead he supported me. If he is only here today maybe we are discussing the U.S politics. I am so amazed the whole elections process because in just 24 hours they can announce the result unlike here in the Philippines that it took us weeks. For some reason I need to follow the U.S politics because I have clients from U.S and because of financial crisis some of my clients are asking me to lower my rate so that they can still afford me and that is really frustrating because we are all affected because of this crisis.

I hope that this time the economy will be getting better and I hope that on next Philippine elections it will be fast and accurate.

I wish!

>Too Lazy

>When I woke up I feel too lazy today to start working. Well, I don’t like myself everytime I feel this laziness. I have so many things to do but still I can’t focus. So what I did was exercise and I feel active again then take a shower. I also gave Gareth a massage and then he fall asleep. I am now ready to work until 5a.m.

How’s your day?
