Making our lives healthier one day at a time

July 3, 2019

Hiya, rookie mommies!

I'm back with another life blog post. So, for the past month. May - June, actually. We've been doing a little revamp in our family lifestyle. From taking new vitamins, doing diets, and home exercises, we are really determined to make our life a little bit healthier.

It's a little easier for me and my daughter to change our bad eating habits because we just stay at home. I still work at night and Arya won't go to proper schooling until next year when she turns 

If you're a vlog subscriber, you may or may not may seen my latest vlog,


I have been really serious on my self-care so I decided to push myself to do home exercises consistently. Arya too joins me whenever I do my morning workouts. Although I didn't want her to lose weight, I just want her to get accustomed to routines and doing this daily takes her away from her gadgets as well so I believe it helps us both.

One of the challenges I had encounter when Arya turned 3 years old is that she just say "NO" to everything. Even though that she and I know that it's her fave food or snack, she will just say No, like it literally became a habit and a phase for her. So, imagine me forcing her to take her liquid vitamins daily. Yeah, not a good sight. Swear. Vitamins all over the floor, on the couch, on her fave white shirt. 


And so, I've recently came across with Watson's Vitamin Gummies with Lactoferrin for kids. Hah! Made my life super easier. This is the first time that we have tried gummy vitamins and I am never going back! I tasted a piece of this and it's super good! It taste like one of those gummy candies you can buy from the supermarket - except this one is lit vitamins!

With this one, I don't have to force her to it. I just say "Arya, time to take your vitamins" and she'll start singing and jumping towards me to get the bottle. I let her open it and take one for herself. The only issue I find with this gummies is that they're so good and I taught Arya to open the bottle right, so sometimes she steals more than 1 gummy. *lol  You can get this from Watsons for the price of P210.00

My husband on the other hand can be very difficult to convince to join us on this journey because most of the time he's at work and when he gets home, it's too late or he's too tired to do any exercises. His eating habit are bad as well because he eats a lot outside. We love eating outside.


One of our fave things to do when we get the chance to go out on a date is to eat Samgyupsal. It's either buffet style or unlimited servings. 


I was super excited when we received this Organique Acai in the mail because I've been wanting to try it for the longest time but I just couldn't bring myself to buy it. Too expensive for me.


I took this for a month, everyday before I do my morning exercise. I don't eat breakfast so this is all I drink + water everyday. My husband didn't like the taste so again, I'm all alone on this one.

Some of the things I noticed while taking this drink is that my sleep improved really well. I have insomnia. Even though I am tired from the day's work I still have difficulty falling asleep at night + my work affects that too. But when I was taking this, my sleep was deep, as in I can have dreams kind of sleep and I remember them too. Another plus for me is that I could feel that it just boosts up my energy for the day. Since, I only take this for breakfast and nothing else before 1pm, I should really feel hungry or tired around that time, but I don't. It gives me more energy to finish a 30 - 45 minutes morning workout.

I eventually finished the bottle and wanting to buy more, but you know, I gotta pay the bills first. You can grab a bottle of this from Watsons at P2,500 for the 946ml and P1,350 for the 473ml.


Another fave toiletry product that I'm currently fond of is Watson's Argan Shampoo. Everyday, after working out, Arya and I goes to shower and this is what I use for my hair. I love anything that has Argan Oil on it because it just makes everything a little bit healthier in my opinion. Honestly, using this product feels like going into hair salon. I have a very dry and dead hair so this shampoo hydrates my locks and keeps it tame. A bottle of this is around P229.00 at Watsons. They also have a conditioner to go with this shampoo.


I lost count on how many times I mentioned and promoted how addicted I am to aromatherapy inhalers and roll-ons. I literally have tons of them under my bed. I can't sleep without them. I have nasal allergies and they helped me breathe easier at night. I discovered FreshKo through Watsons as well. 



Compared to the other inhalers and roll-ons that I have, FreshKo smells familiar because it's Calamansi and leave that menthol-cold feeling on your skin. I just love this! I put this on my temple and neck every night and it helps with my insomnia too.


I love going to Watsons because it's a one-stop-shop. All of our family's needs from toiletries, medicines, makeup, and sometimes even snacks, they have it all there. It's a good thing that we have a branch here that's closer to our home so whenever we need something it's just a few steps away. *wink

For me, being healthy should start from home and yourself and not from others. The reason why I decided to start doing home exercises, watching my diet, and taking care of myself more is because there was a time that I couldn't look in the mirror anymore. I felt really bad and not confident on my own skin. When that happened, I knew that I had to change something and I just had the courage to start it little by little one day at a time and just do it consistently. Most of all, have fun and think that everything that you're doing is for a better self. Self-care, exercise is an investment you're sure you're not going to lose anything in the long run.

Xoxo,
Rookie Mommy PH - just do it.
