My SEXY Revolution Starts NOW

My weight struggle started after I gave birth to my first child way back 2007.
this is me a few months before getting pregnant (25 inches)

From my usual 110 lbs when I was still single, I gained 26 lbs during my pregnancy, but of course, I never mind that at all, I just wanted my baby to be healthy and so was she.

my 2yr old daughter Mishka (2009)

I underwent a Ceasarian procedure, thanks to my husband when asked about the style, he mentioned bikini, good thing the doctors asked. Everyday I would wear a girdle so I can move with minimal pain and can carry my daughter most of the time, and also for my tummy to be firm. I barely eat during the first two weeks after giving birth because my sensitiveness to food smell is still there. After that, I started munching up junk foods, coffee and more on food deliveries during night time because that's when my daughter is awake. So they say, if you have little sleep-time that's when you eat much.. for me it's true.. I gained more weight then, and one day I saw myself as if I'm still pregnant and people began noticing and asking me if I was pregnant... Secretly of course that hurts.. I don't feel any confidence and beauty at all. I said to myself, it's time to reduce weight, go on a diet and bring back the figure I used to love.

October 2006 ,with my Aunt and Balikbayan cousin and friend

I searched the internet of the fastest way I can regain my weight back. Had exercised 15 minutes a day for 2 weeks only and I stopped only to discover myself pregnant again. That was April 2008. I had my check up on my OB-Gynecologist and had an ultrasound.

yep, I was misdiagnosed at the Medical City



The result says that I have an Ectopic pregnancy, having to see a small thingy in my fallopian tube made it scary for me. The doctors advised me to undergo a procedure because pregnancy wouldn't be successful anyway. The day of my operation April 12th, if I remembered it right, I was waiting at the emergency delivery room at Ospital in Makati and the doctor did an ie (internal exam? they do it if you're pregnant,which really hurts) and did some pushing on my abdomen and told me that I have to be on the operating room at once.

 from Ectopic pregnancy to Oosphorocystectomy


I woke up around midnight after the procedure and my bikini cut was again hurting. I said to myself, I am never going to be slim again because I can't move to exercise again for a long time. I remembered crying that time because I missed my daughter a lot, she's just 6 months then. After a few minutes in recovery area a doctor approached me and advised me that I will be transfered to another room, and telling me that I shouldn't be there with other sick people because I'm still pregnant.. what the?! Yes, what the hell was that? They told me that the mis-diagnosed Ectopic pregnancy, was an ovarian cyst, I underwent a procedure call Oosphorocystectomy? I don't know if that's the correct spelling, anyway, I was shocked and at the same time felt bad because I know pregnant women shouldn't be undergoing surgery while on their critical first quarter, mine was 4weeks I think. And sadly, the next day I had a miscarriage.

That part where I was so devastated and at the same time everything hurts. grrrr! whenever I remember those times I would just close my eyes and count, to ease the nightmare I had. Well, that's past already, I should forget the bad experiences.

Months after, I tried drinking Biguerlai Tea, and it helped me a lot because it makes you go the comfort room several times and makes me feel like I'm losing weight, though physically not obvious. And because I felt immune with it and nothing is happening, I stopped and try Slimming Green Tea, again same result, but this time I resumed with my love for cooking.. So I ate more and stopped drinking any teas.

Come February 2009, I was pregnant again, so diet no more, instead eat more. I gained a lot more lbs compared to my previous pregnancy. I remembered weighing 150lbs. OMG! I love eating Tapsilog (beef strips, fried rice and egg)almost everyday. My Ob-Gyne told me to stop eating rice on my 8th month because my tummy is indeed bigger. I gave birth to my son Tristan Lucian Arthas on November 2009,again CS.

Tristan Lucian Arthas


I decided that I will start taking pills if my OB tells me it's the right time to take it, because I felt something bad when I was in the operating table, felt like I won't make it, I'm so scared even though my whole body is still numb and I can feel my body shaking while they are pulling out Tristan, I'm conscious at that time and saw a reflection on a big stainless light in front of me. I had experienced shortness of breath and chills and something in my throat that wants to come out. But I controlled my nervousness and counted, I said to myself, I will not die here in this table and I was calmed down and slept. After three days from confinement at the Medical City, had a check up because my legs were bigger than they used too... I had pre-eclampsia..OMG! They told me that I have to undergo several injections to prevent me from having seizures, it's a deadly thing...so scary too.

Tristan's Christening(Dec.2009) a month after giving birth

looks like a bump..

So much for the drama... I'm blogging about bringing my sexy back my beloved readers... I've been advised by my OB that pills are not for me as it has Estrogen that could kill a person with hypertension, so I go for injectible contraceptive that is Depotrust. Some of you may know it's major negative side effect - water retention and weight gain...Simply devastated and I know that I have no choice for that, I needed contraception and with it is the thought that I'll never be regaining my old figure.. (sigh)and there's more weight to expect. OMG! for that again.

Christmas 2010


November 2011, with bloggers Michelle Martinez and Janaki Garcia 
during Smart Parenting Meet & Greet

Even though it will be a positive thing that I will gain more, I still have not given up my will to reduce weight. I tried slimming drinks again, 7 days Brazilian Slimming Coffee, Kankunis Herbal Tea, Leisure Slimming Juice with Leptin, Leisure 18 Slimming Orange and Mango Juice and Biguerlai. At first, I was happy with its results but when my body becomes immune with what I was drinking, it has no effect at all.

this is what I'm currently drinking

Now, weighing this (63) much is not at all healthy for me, physically and emotionally. Every time we go out, I see to it that my stomach is covered with bag while malling, I would carry my son and that's relieving for me even if he's heavier than he used to. My self confidence is on level 3 on the scale 1 to 10 (being the highest)


2011, good thing I have Chef Nancy to cover me LOL

another bulge-cover-up




March 2012(that's a lot for a side view)

April 2012(inhale)


I saw some products of body trimming on Home TV Shopping and also on the internet that I'm this close to purchasing, but still thought it might not work. The Ab-Roller, Steam-O something, Ultimate Body Applicator, the swing-this-and-that product... Oooooh! how I wish there would be an effective way for me to bring back my waistline and hips, less bulges.


the figure I used to love (2006)


Would SEXY Solutions by Belo help me with my huge -weight and figure- problem? That made me into thinking if it will work for me. I'm a hopeless case and I don't know what to do anymore. I need to bring my SEXY back!

Maybe SEXY Solutions by Belo can help me? Let's see!

Sexy Solutions is a non-invasive fat reduction clinic that has machines that can (1) melt fat in stubborn places, (2) tighten loose skin and (3) tone muscle. This is of great help when you have that sagging skin on your belly after a successful diet, because the irritating-to-look-at belly skin will be tightened and at the same time muscles will be toned-up, that would result into a firmer sexier you. (I'll be needing a sponsor for this LOL)

Sexy Solutions also has an in-house consultants that can help us with the nutrition and fitness regimen like those related to dieting that worked but the body seems to be in slow-motion because of less food and more activities. Sexy Solution's nutritionist can point us towards a healthy way of losing weight.

SkinWhite and Nuffnang bring you Snow White and The Huntsman

When I was still young, my relatives used to call me ' Snow Black', well, because I was dark skinned, unlike my siblings and cousins.

that's me wearing a tube... isn't it obvious (",)

I don't remember crying when I was being teased by my uncles and aunties that I'm 'negra', I just smiled. Through those years of growing up,my skin became a bit lighter, and in my high school days, I was getting conscious of my skin. The only advantage thing for me having that Filipino color was in school plays, I am thrice the Inang Bayan who would stand on the stage during 'Linggo ng Wika' and sometimes Independence Day celebration.Well, just reminiscing makes me smile, good times though.

Enough of the dark-skin tones of the old days, now there's more whitening products that you will see in every stall in the supermarket and malls. It can be soaps, lotions, pills and any thing you could ever imagine, there's nothing impossible today.

And then there's SkinWhite, that has an edge in whitening solutions because it has Synchrowhite Action that works in four ways. It Whitens the surface of my skin, Reduces dark pigments formation at its source, Nourishes my skin with vitamins and Protects my skin against toxins and UV rays. It will definitely give us a beautiful blush white skin that Prince Charming can't even resist.

And speaking of me being 'Snow Black' and SkinWhite's effect on our Prince Charming, SkinWhite & Nuffnang Philippines bring you Snow White and the Huntsman. 


“In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.” – IMDB

“Kristen Stewart (the Twilight saga, On the Road) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil Queen Ravenna (Oscar winner Charlize Theron of Prometheus, Hancock) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagines was that the young woman who has escaped her clutches and now threatens her reign has been training in the art of war with a Huntsman named Eric (Chris Hemsworth of Thor, The Avengers) who was dispatched to capture her.” – Snow White and the Huntsman Official Website 



Just a month ago, Nuffnang Philippines made bloggers so happy with The Avengers, and again Nuffnang together with SkinWhite will give bloggers an exclusive screening of the upcoming Snow White and The Huntsman at the Shang Cineplex on June 1,Friday. The first 100 bloggers to sign up their blog post will win tickets to this exclusive Nuffnang Philippines and SkinWhite event.



Please watch this extended movie-like video of 
BFF's Ivan and Tippy's Kilig SkinWhite Story. Love it!

Save The Date Business Card Magnets Giveaway


Plum Crazy About Coupons has joined together with some awesome bloggers to host a Giveaway for Save the Date Business Card Magnets made by UPrinting. I am really excited about this giveaway because everyone can always use business cards and a business card magnet is even better! Where do you keep all the business cards you receive? I constantly misplace the ones I get unless it's a magnet attached to the side of my refrigerator.

From Serenitea to Take Care by Garnier

My best friend, Luchie craves much for Serenitea Hokkaido Milk Tea, and I was wondering what charm does Serenitea have that she went loco over it in the hours where people are supposed be sleeping, 9:00PM.



She fetched me and we went to look for it's branch at the Eastwood City. We parked at the 24 hour parking at Eastwood Mall only to discover that Serenitea is a bit far from where we at. It's location is at the Cyber Mall just fronting the entrance to the Eastwood City. Well, it's just fine, we get to walk on a weekend night, I think it's a holiday if I am not mistaken, and there were lots of people in the Tiangge area.



She treat me with Hokkaido Milk Tea, their bestseller I heard, with black pearls, I don't know their own name for these pearls but they we're called Sinkers.



Bought also peppercorn which you would definitely love, the taste of saltiness and some spices that will make you want to bite for more. I ordered Chicken Chop to-go for my husband, and we went crazy eating it at home, we love the crunchy leaves, probably it's basil leaves? Anyway, it just tastes good.


Once you order and paid, the cashier will give you this coaster with a timer in it, indicating your order is ready at the counter when the light goes up. Nice idea!


We went to Serenitea again, this time it's just me who bought for to-go, because we just ate at Tokyo Tokyo. I took home again Hokkaido but with white sinkers, nata de coco it is, and their another bestseller Winter Melon Milk Tea for my husband as well as the Chicken Chop. 

I noticed on their counter this Garnier Giveaway, that says just ask, and of course, I asked the cashier. She gave me 2 sample sachets of Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub.


This New Garnier Pure Active Muti-Action Scrub fights the six signs of acne (fate led me to notice their promo) which were enumerated as follows:

1.  Pimples
2.  Whiteheads
3.  Oiliness
4.  Enlarged Pores
5.  Impurities
6. Unevenness

It contains Purifying Salicylic Acid, one of the most efficient anti-bacterial actives that helps control oil and reduces imperfections. HerbaRepair, a natural origin active ingredient from blueberry extract with regenerating and repairing properties for anti-dullness action.

The back label also says it's dermatologically tested on Asian acne-prone skin.

This Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub sampling started last May 1st and ends June 30,2012. So what are you waiting for, proceed to your favorite Serenitea branch and ask for this freebie now. The Garnier flyer can also be used to avail 10% discount for every purchase of 100ml Pure Active Scrub at any Shopwise and Rustan's branch. Valid until September 2012. 

You get to refresh from your cravings for Serenitea and at the same time you'll experience this new Garnier breakthrough in fighting the 6 skin problems.

My Kids Love the New Johnson's Baby Cooling Bath


Bath time is fun with the New Johnson's baby cooling bath.
Its natural honeysuckle extract helps cool and soothe your baby's skin,
that's why he feels refreshed and invigorated. (back label)



My kids grew up bathing with Johnson's Milk Bath, and Top-To-Toe Wash as well as Baby Bath for the longest time now. Then I found this new color of Johnson's baby bath on the supermarket rack at SM Megamall.  It's a baby cooling bath?... oh! perfect for my kids who always seem to be sweating even if we're in an air-conditioned room.

My kids loved it. My 4yr old daughter even asked me while she was taking a bath "Mommy what's that (while I was shampooing her hair) I love it, it's cold, what's that?" and I answered "It's Johnson's baby cooling bath" she replied "I'm not a baby Mommy, see I'm big girl, big tummy" LOL

They looked refreshed and smells so good. I don't know how to explain its scent,  it's like a breath of fresh air, or sea breeze... I just love it so much and will continue to use this on my kids and I might use this for myself too.

This is the answer to summer heat for your children because the fresh feeling stays even after bathing. A new bathing experience for them.

Available in leading supermarkets. Limited Edition: Buy 300ml bottle for the price of 200ml  only P81.75

Are your Gadgets Baby-Sitting Your Child?

This has got to be my wake-up call. It should be.

Last night when I was ironing my husband's clothes, I heard him call me and he sounded a bit sad and worried.  He said that he asked my daughter Mishka to read the letters s-a-m-s-u-n-g on the lower part of the lcd tv. The letters were half an inch size and for sure anyone can read it from afar. But not my daughter. She knew the letters of the alphabet so well, so there's no reason for her not to answer what's been asked... just spell.  She was just four years old and she's reading the letter within 'dalawang dipa' around 7 feet only from the tv. She is probably nearsighted (myopia) and we were devastated because she's just a little girl with so many things to do and not worry about her eyesight.


We thought she was just kidding that she can't read the letters accurately, but then her reaction is telling us that she really can't see it. Mishka would scratch her forehead and turned away saying, 'I can't'.

It's our fault, as parents, that our children might suffer from some conditions resulting from the use of laptop, cellphone, ipod, psp, tv etc. I am admitting that sometimes when my son Tristan is playing with the cellphone and Mishka is watching videos on the laptop makes my life easier.

This would be their common daily routine.


even outside the house


They would just stop roaming and running around the room Avoiding being pushed by the other one while they're hyper-actively playing.



I know I have made those gadgets baby sit my kids and indeed it's my fault why my daughter is now having those blur visions when reading, because I asked her if she sees cloud-like or smoke while she reads, 'YES' was her answer.

So now this laptop wouldn't be here when she wakes up. I'm thinking of other ways so they won't look for this, which is impossible. But then, I should stick with my plan of not letting her use this, instead, have some activities that will occupy their time and get to learn at the same time, since she will be going to school this June already.

Here are some activities I thought might help me, and my kids stay away from using gadgets, and might help you too.

1. Story Time

Grab a book they like or choose one that you think they will be fond of.  There's this short story entitled "The Growling Tummy" which my kids like when I'm reading it to them. It's a funny story that has moral lessons in it.
Sometimes my daughter would say 'Mommy, I want growling tummy, let's read now'  and it made me realized that she also wanted to try other things besides using the laptop, and now I know I must do this regularly.


2. Let them write and draw

I bought a canvass book for both of them to write and draw. Mishka has a talent in drawing, even when she just about 2.5 yrs old, she would create images out of blue, it's just her imagination. I kept the pages where she drew it, clip it here later.

she finally wrote her name, she knew exactly how it spelled

she copied my drawings

3. Let them play real toys.

Playing with actual toys around them helps their imagination develop. They would create a script of their own and use some animal figures or robots in telling stories.

Mishka favorite is this Littlest Petshop house together
with the 12 pets
Angry birds is Tristan's favorite character

4. Let them dance and sing.

Well for this matter, I'm gonna be using a cellphone as their music when they dance. They both love to dance with the music from LMFAO's Party Rock, Katy Perry's and Nicki Minaj. Mishka would sing Adele's, Cristina Perri's and Katy Perry's too.

she refers to this one as her costume, in dancing

5. Let them play with puzzles.

Though they played with several puzzles before and tore it into little pieces other than its original sizes, I would still buy puzzles for them. Also helps in their imagination.

Studies said that kids nowadays has little imagination due to the regular use of computers and watching tv. They have no time to be alone with their toys and play with it, so they can use their thinking-out-of-the-box abilities.  Good thing there are still toys around here. I admit it that I almost gave away their toys so that it won't be so messy on the floor and just focus on their gadgets, huh! my mind sometimes gets messed up in decision making. Good thing I didn't put it into action. 

6. Let them play outdoors with other kids.

This is definitely the most difficult thing for me to do because I can't look at them both and hold their hands at the same time while Tristan would walk fast to the point that he'll be tumbling on the street and get wounds (imagining only) The kids in the neighborhood were all big though and have their own ways (rough) how to play. Scary for my kids to do.

Maybe in time, but not now, I still have to convince myself that playing outdoor if safe, I know it would be fun for them, but I'm a bit selfish now, I don't want them to get hurt. (so protective)

7.  Let them play Hide & Seek

Mishka would always go for the same place to hide when she heard someone approaching our room. She would shout and say "Call me" when the door opens. She meant, look for me, like she really can't be found. LOL

For now, these are the things I promised to do with them. Hopefully it'll be a success and prevent them from wanting to use gadgets anymore.

Fingers crossed. Anyway, I'm the parent and I will be their guide in whatever they wish to do. BTW, they are both still sleeping and will keep this after .

Baby Shower Celebration from The Miracle Blanket

I am joining in with Tots and Me to bring you some awesome baby related giveaways in celebration of her baby boy's birth. The review below is written by Tots and Me.

Tots and Me

About a week ago I shared a little bit about The Miracle Blanket.



This really is a unique and innovative swaddle blanket. At first I wasn't sure if I had received this blanket too late. Baby Harold has been preferring his arms out of the swaddle when I was wrapping him in his other blankets.  But, I decided to give The Miracle Blanket a shot.
Ever since he has been sick he has been sleeping in the car seat. When we were in the hospital, every time I laid him down he woke back up coughing.  So I have been very leery about laying him on his back. Looking at it that way, I received the Miracle Blanket at just the right time. As baby Harold has finally gotten rid of his cough and we are done with his breathing treatments I felt safe laying him on his back during the night.










He did not mind his arms being confined (though it looks like he did as I was swaddling him) and he slept several hours. And it really was so easy to swaddle him in this blanket. As I stated in my Sponsor Spotlight post, it may not look like a traditional blanket, but it works wonderfully. No wondering where the baby's arms should go. The arm flaps gently hold the baby's arms down by his side. And then you just wrap the right side up and over the baby followed by the left over and under and around. No fiddling with the blanket to make sure it is at the right angle or length. And there are no snaps, buttons, Velcro or zippers to deal with in the middle of the night. In addition, it is very well made. This blanket is a winner in my book. You have got to check  it out. 
Head over to The Miracle Blanket site to check out this great blanket. They have several patterns/colors to choose from. While you are there, check out the other great products they carry including Miracle Sounds CDs. And don't forget about their current special discount: $5 dollars off the regular price of $29.95 Buy any 2 Miracle Blankets and get an additional 15% discount on all  the Miracle Blankets in your order.  And don't forget to check them out on Facebook and Twitter
As a part of my Baby Shower Celebration, I have been offered the opportunity to do a giveaway of a Miracle Blanket of the winners choice. Isn't that awesome! 
This giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada. 
The giveaway runs from 12:01am May 10th- 11:59pm May 26th

I know I do not usually have so many entries on my Rafflecopter forms. However, these wonderful ladies are helping to share my Baby Shower Celebration and I offered them a spot or two on said form. Remember, you don't have to fill in every entry (there are only 2 mandatory entries) but each entry you complete increases your chances for winning and I would love for you to follow these great ladies who are helping me.


Disclosure: I received  a Miracle Blanket for free as a part of my Baby Shower Celebration. This did not in any way influence my review. I only recommend products I use personally and will be good for my readers
