There is no single cause for eating disorders. The basic tenet of eating disorders seems to be concerns about weight and body shape. There are many factors, including cultural, familial, and emotional and personality factors as well as genetic and biologic factors that may play a role in causation of eating disorders.
This is not going to be a cooking blog, it’s going to be a lifestyle blog. I’ll just post whatever I want. Yes that sounds good. It felt stiff(?) on my last blog, like everything was black and white. I was not having fun. I like being random. Tumblr is random, so I like tumblr!
I didn’t have self-raising flour or brown sugar so I just use 2tbs of all purpose flour + 1/4tsp of baking powder and regular sugar. I also didn’t have cinnamon so it smell like eggs but not in a good way. It taste pretty good though. Enjoy!
"Too young too dumb to realise that I should’ve bought you flowers, and held your hand. Should’ve gave you all my hour when I had the chance. Take you every party cause all you wanted to do was dance. Now my baby’s dancing yeah she’s dancing with another man."
That awesome moment when it doesn’t hurt anymore when you listen to a good pathetic love song.
Hello, hello! It’s been so long since I blog here. I’ve been blogging over at blogger but I miss tumblr so much so here I am :) How are you? I can honestly say that I’m doing great. It’s been a good year, a great year, an awesome year! Can’t you feel the changes? Beautiful, beautiful. It’s half way through 2013, six month to go to 2014. Time flies like crazy this year, for me anyway.
It also means six month left for my resolutions! No, I haven’t forgot about that. I have been straying but now it’s time to get back on track. Especially since it’s summer break! I was really productive the last school break and now it’s time, again, to get more use out of it since it’s three times as long. I’ll try to be more consistent with my uploads, so bear with me will ya?
My main resolutions for 2013 is(/was?)
Read more books.
I’ve broken them to daily task and.. I didn’t fail miserably! Whoa. In fact I don’t think I fail. I’ve read a few books. I mostly read, non-romance book. I’ve really been getting into psychology, self-help and fiction books. I’ve also lost a few pounds, 12 pounds to be exact from January to April and I’ve been keeping them off. But I don’t feel as awesome as I should be. Not that I’m ungrateful with what I’ve achieve, but I want to read books AND enjoy them. I don’t want to read books just for the sake of reading them. And I want to lose weight to be healthy, NOT to look good in a bikini. I want to be able to run and enjoy running. Won’t that be, like, awesome? So, new plans! New resolutions! I can so this, I still have six months. So here’s my new list:
Eat healthy, as in no junk food and more fruit. Limit process food to, well, none. Eat home cook meal as often as possible, meaning masakan padang is better than mcdonald. ;) but seriously, no more chips! There’s plenty of (more)healthy AND delicious meal out there kiddos!
Read books and enjoy them as long as possible while reading. As in, don’t speed read. Re-read a sentence if you have to. DON’T procrastinate on reading.
Walk on the beach every morning, BECAUSE IT DAMN AWESOME! Like, seriously, if you love near the beach go out and walk every morning.
Start running again every night. I’m redoing the 3 weeks to 30-minute running e-course. Excited! (You can see that e-course here!)
Take more photograph! And don’t use auto-settings.
Dare I say I’ll be uploading every week? I’ll have to see this week which day it’ll be more convenient to upload. You know, being consistent and everything. ;)
p.s let’s do this together! We still have six month. The hours are long but the days are short, let’s do it while we can. Yip yip!
Three days ago I had a class where me and my best friend were ‘separated’ for the first time, it was a problem because I had unfriendly people at that class. I was scared to death of looking pathetic and lonely at that class, and I was also scared of feeling pathetic and lonely at that class.
On my way to campus, my mind started to do that thing where it over works it self. From that point on, everything seems worst than it really is.
I went into class and.. it wasn’t AT ALL like I thought it would be. And thats when I realize that, sometimes, being alone is empowering. Realizing that you still can ‘survive’ even though you’re alone, is needed. It’s great if you have someone to lean on, but it’s definitely okay if you’re on your own.
I’m not supporting staying in you comfort zone, or ‘not putting yourself out there’. I’m saying, it’s okay to be alone. Sometimes you need to do stuff by yourself. So, GO OUT AND BE COMFORTABLE BEING AND DOING STUFF ALONE. As Kelly Clarkson once wrote, ‘doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone’.
I’m very happy to announce that I finally finish the 3 Weeks to a 30-Minute e-course! I know I’m a wee bit late (I should have finish around Christmas) but I’m always super busy at December (especially Christmas), I re-started running around mid January and begin at day 14 of the 21 day e-course, I finally finish last Thursday. Right now I’m not feeling my best but I plan to start running again this week, I already have my running schedule (I plan to start at week four through eight) for the next four week and I’m super excited! How’s your exercising plan going? I would love to hear your running story!
HELLO! Sorry I haven’t been updating like I promise, December is a crazy busy month for me. Especially this year because I just started collage and we always have our exams in December. Anyway, I actually did follow through my running schedule(!) except for the last day because it was just too busy to run.
New year has never been a big deal for me, it’s just a day where the year changes. But this year it was pretty exciting. It was because of my three December resolutions and how much fun I had trying and keeping track of my progress, so I made a bunch of resolutions for 2013 that I can’t wait to work on. I always set the bar waaaay to high each year so this year I made a realistic list and a journal to keep track. Heres how I made my resolutions for 2013 :)
First write down why you need resolutions, you can make it into a list but I felt like telling a story so I made an essay on my journal. It was relief writing down how I felt and a really good way to motivate my self. You can re-read it if you feel like hitting a wall.
I thought about what I want to change in my self, it was a long list. Be more healthy, discipline, independent, active, not care what other people think etc. You don’t need to be specific here, just write down stuff that you think will bring positivity in your life and drives out the negativity.
Now be specific; write down your year, month and daily resolution to achieve what you write down at number two. For me; year: Read 50 books, lose 5-7kg, complete at least three projects(365 project, focus on making another blog etc); month: I made one big goal per month, January: renovate room; February: fitness stabile etc; daily: make three small goal that you can do easily, for me: read the news paper everyday, read purpose driven life everyday and clean my own room everyday.
Monitor your progress: write down what goals you didn’t achieve, why you didn’t achieve them and how you’re going to achieve them later.
DON’T BE TOO UP THIGHT! Have fun with your goal, this shouldn’t be work, this should be fun work!
Hope those tips help with your resolutions-planning! Don’t forget to have fun, oh, and happy belated new year!
For anyone thats interested to start running, don’t be scare! It’s work at first be you’ll get the hang of it. I suggest to read up on running.about.com to check up on proper running form, warm up, cool down and stretches. If you’re an ABSOLUTE couch potato like I am you should check out their run for beginner course 4 Weeks to One Mile or Email-Course: Run Your First 5K; I joined the 3 Weeks to a 30 Minute Running Habit e-mail course. If anyone needs a buddy you can e-mail me at nadyanaftalia(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)id. I haven’t started running yet this week, I’m working on my room but I plan to run next week and join a gym this month or, at least, February. Have fun running!
It’s twelve o’clock in the morning so I’ll just make this short, “yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift. That’s why we call it present” why am I bringing up a cheesy quote from Kung Fu Panda? Because it hit me how true it was. Don’t stress about what had happen, you can’t do anything about it anyway right? Why worry about the future, we can’t predict what will happen; regardless how bad or good things might actually turn out as we expected. Mere coincidence. Or how we think about something effects the outcome. The point (about the quote) is: do your best at what you’re doing right now, don’t even think about ‘later’. What can you do NOW? What will you do NOW that you think will be for the very best. Don’t think about anything else but that and you will find your self cherishing every moment in life. ‘Totalitas’. I love it already. Viva la Vida!
A lot of people don’t know this, and it really doesn’t show, but I have stage fright. Panic attack. Anxiety attack. And all the other pretty names for it. It’s like ‘I’m going to shit my pants’ every time the spot light is turn on me. ANYTIME. For instance, if someone ask me ANYTHING on my regular practice at EDS, I choke. So. Fucking. Stupid. Why do I choke all the time???!! It’s like my brain goes into shock every time I feel a little bit nervous. I want to do a lot of stuff and I know I shouldn’t let this stop me but I feel like I’m going to cry. It’s that bad, every time. My anxiety problem is so bad akh!
I’m bringing all this up because a senior ask if I could lead the prayer on Friday. WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSE TO DO? I. WLL. CHOKE. No joke :-( Should I or shouldn’t I?
