2 weeks ago my cousin in law MLG introduced Easy Phamax Colon-cleasing program to me. She explained the benefits and how it works. I won't go into detail but here's the link of the product:

So last week, i purchased 2 sets for me and DH. 3 days fasting of no food intake, however the set already includes our meal replacement consists of wheatgrass and fiber shakes.

Here's what happened to DH: 1st day he took those drink and he almost puke. Around 3PM he started going to the bathroom and *poop* a lot! He couldn't stand the taste of the drink so he gave up the 1st day. Total number of *poop* 3 times. He said he felt clean inside.

My experience: 1st day was quite easy, i drank all the shakes and *poop* twice! 2nd day i was already getting sick of the drink and *poop* 5 times!! I was feeling weak each time and hungry. And every time i prepare the drink i cannot stand the smell anymore. I surrendered on the 2nd day. Total number of poop, 7 times! I felt really light but curious maybe i have lost a pound or 2.. yikes, scale shows i'm only 96 lbs! Honestly I don't look healthy because of sudden weight lost in 2 days. I started eating the next day because of my paranoia.. and gained back 3 lbs as of today. Good grief!
My poop does not exactly look like this, but close to it..

I will recommend to anyone who needs cleasing because i really felt light and clean after the program. But I will not recommend to people who are underweight already. As for the taste of the product, its not as bad tasting as bitter or anything, but the fact of taking it 6 times a day of the same thing that we couldn't stand. But some people I know took it for 3 days and they did fine.

You can try it too.

Sad News

Mike Tyson's daughter Exodus Tyson died because of a freak accident.. Her neck got strangled in their treadmill machine at home! Never thought this could happen.
News link:

I feel really depressed when i hear this kind of news, because our family encountered an accident last year. My daughter fell from our dining chair while reaching for a glass of iced tea and got off-balance, she landed elbow first.

I bombarded my thoughts to be positive out of this negative situation. I kept reminding myself..Thank God, its not a broken leg or broken skull etc., but only a small chip on her bone near the elbow which has been repaired immediately by her Pedia-Ortho Dr. Mario Geronilla. It was a surreal experience for me, but God put me through in this tough time. I wouldn't make it without God's intervention in my life.

Stage Mom

Today we went to Manila Polo Club for the closing of the Soccer summer clinic of Manila Soccer Academy (MSA). Teams from different Soccer organizations like Xavier, Corinthians, etc. joined the competition. Children of all sizes & shapes were scattered in the field with their proud parents, including myself.

Parents were all smiles and just kept clicking their cameras!

My dear son played for MSA in his age group and they won 2nd runner up! YIPEE!! I don't want to gush but I am his number 1 fan, even if he is not the star player. I love this sport for kids, it takes away their excess energy, hence they are more relaxed at home and finish their dinner in a jiffy.

I Want!

I want this kind of 'toned' body.

Sorry folks because i just woke up and came from dreamland. Forgive my wishful thinking. Good Morning!

Am I Ready To Tri?

June 14, 2009 is the day that I'm attempting to join a triathlon event. I'm still having jitters while saying this, because people who knew me from before knows that I'm not athletic! Not only until last year that i fell in love with running. This year, cousins in laws like MC, CQC, EC, TT including DH, and a number close friends are signing up for the Animo Triathlon in Ayala Alabang. I'm a newbie so i plan to join the mini-sprint (Swim- 350m, Bike- 12km, Run- 3.4km). Note, I said "plan".. so you know i also have the intention to back out :[

And so last Monday and today, I hit the pool.

Yup 50 Meters Lap Pool. And yes i am still alive after 18 Laps.

Last Tuesday i went biking with DH.

Do i want to be like her? just like a little girl dreaming of the future.. After a few knocks on the head... I don't want to attempt, it pays to train that hard to be like her! I'll stick to being a Jeweller/MOM/Cook. A lot easier. And just do a little run, bike, swim and enjoy buying nice gears to go with each sport.

Yesterday I swam with my good friend CQC, tomorrow I plan to run while my DS play soccer at Manila Polo Club. I'm joining the Animo Triathlon At Ayala Alabang on June. Folks, i'm just doing the mini-sprint, so no need to raise your eyebrows :) This Sunday, May 17, DH & I together with some friends, signed up for Market Market Run.

Our running bibs

DH opted not to do the 10 mile run because of the hot weather now & knee injury, plus we have a full Sunday ahead. Our cousin CY's wedding day! I'm so happy today because I went to Rajo's Sale and got myself and DD a loot!! I'll post mine in the next few days because of some alteration. I got DD a cute denim "RAJO" mini skirt.. at a VERY GOOD PRICE! Yipee
