Intermittent Fasting

By on March 26, 2018

Sometime last week, I saw this post about intermittent fasting (IF) when a friend posted it on our group chat:

⏰Intermittent Fasting isn’t really a diet but more of an eating strategy. By restricting the…

Now, to start off, I recently lost some weight starting when I had braces, and then got sick on and off for about a month last year. From my heaviest weight of ~54 kg, I went down to around 46-47 kg at the lightest. Currently, I’ve gained a little bit and now weigh around 47-48 kg. I plan to stabilize and keep my weight that way.

Review: Orven’s Cafe

Orven’s Cafe

Purok 6 No. 182 Sta. Rita Karsada, Batangas City
Contact number: 0942 563 2818
>> Facebook page <<

I have posted about some popular coffee shops here in Batangas before. My list is but the tip of the iceberg, as new ones pop up more and more frequently all over the province. I am all for trying these new places, and I do every now and then. So it’s a bit rare for me to keep coming back to any one particular place unless (1) I really do like the food, (2) the price is reasonable and (3) there’s parking space (fast-food chains don’t count as my daughter defaults to those whenever I ask her where to eat). I have been to Orven’s Cafe several times (for both dine-in and takeout orders), so that right there should tell you something.

Review: Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover

Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover

My current bullet journal is an A5 softcover Victoria’s Journal dotted notebook. It’s got 40 leaves / 80 pages of 80 gsm cream paper, which is sufficient enough for daily use but could use some improvements. Being a pretty thin notebook with thin pages, it’s a lot more susceptible to damage from everyday wear than, say, a hardbound dotted notebook like Scribbles That Matter or Leuchtturm1917.

As it is part of my EDC, I need it to last me the whole year, or at least until it runs out of pages. Being thrown into different bags every other day is not exactly conducive to its lasting me as long as I need it to. The solution? A sturdy notebook cover. This is where the Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover comes into play.

New Weekly Format

From the start of the year, I have been using an adapted version of the Alastair Method for my weeklies, that is, a weekly running log. I find it efficient and space-saving, perfect for someone like me who doesn’t really have a lot of things going on that need to be logged. I can’t sing enough praises to the people who thought this up.

So why am I changing format now if it works so well for me?

2018 Bullet Journal

By on January 12, 2018

Happy New Year! 🙂

So. Before anything, a little recap of my first bullet journals (work and personal, as pictured below). 2017 has been more productive than it would have been otherwise without the help of my BuJo. I usually multi-task (even with my thought processes, so yes, I tend to overthink as well) so I tend to have a pretty short attention span and sometimes forget things. Having tasks and such written down, I could see what I have to do and therefore be able to do more.
