sunday currently │ 07

I want a productive writing weekend so I made a list of the things I want to write for the blog before I left the office last Friday. However, I was such a genius mommy I left the list in my locker. There goes my productive weekend. I can’t, for the life of me, remember what I wrote there. Rather than sulk and go nuts trying to remember what I listed down, I decided to do a Sunday Currently which I haven’t done for a long time.

Here’s my first Sunday Currently for this year.


Reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. This is an 800-page high fantasy novel the Portmanteau girls decided to buddy read this month. We originally plan to finish this in a month. It seems that won’t happen because we are all behind from our reading schedule. I don’t know why a lot of my reader friends likes this when I feel like dropping it at 35%. Fine, I’ll carry on and see if the remaining chapters will blow me away or I’ll blow this book away.

Writing, not writing yet but I plan to write a few things for the blog. As I said I made a list. I’ll probably just make another one. My only worry is I might add a few not on the first list or I forget one I previously wrote. Hay, buhay, Ulyanin.

Listening to Hwayugi’s OST because Lee Seung Gi is love. Here’s one of my favorites.

Watching Hwayugi or A Korean Odyssey. This is Lee Seung Gi’s first series after his military stint so we can say seeing him is refreshing. Actually, I watched almost all of his Korean series and I don’t find him “gwapitong” oppa but he does look really well in this series.

Thinking of the vacation I’m about to start tonight! The partner and I are going to Baguio for a quick get away. This will be my first legit travel vacation since I gave birth. So I’m really really looking forward to this stay-cation and of course the food even if I’m already super frustrated with my weight.

Smelling the Pork Binagoongan I cooked for lunch. Whenever I am here in the province (which is every weekend), I am the designated chef. It’s also the reason dieting while I am here is such a difficult task to accomplish. I feel like all the dieting and exercising I did over the week were all lost for the 2 days I spent eating here in Pangasinan.

Wishing for a better work-related goals to be done by next month. One of the reasons why I keep a Bullet Journal is to track habits I want to start and get rid off as well as cross out goals I set for myself in various aspects of my life.

Hoping I’ll have the resolve to change what I’d been doing healthwise recently. OMG. Why is it so difficult to control eating?! I know losing weight is 80% diet, 20% exercise and I am failing both. Grrr. Nakaka-frustrate talaga!

Wearing my pambahay. Summer is starting early in the province. Sobrang init!

Needing patience, resolve and sipag. Especially sipag.

Feeling frustrated over my weight. I need to loose 6kg and instead of doing that I feel like I am gaining weight rather than shedding the pounds I gained for the past 6 months. I can now feel the effects of the change in my physique and I tell you, it’s not fun. PCOS is definitely back with a vengance, upper back pain is on and off, lipid profile spikes up, and I can feel how sluggish I am when moving around because of the added weight. If we are to base it with my BMI, I am already over my ideal “healthy” weight and I really need to get serious with my diet and regular exercise or else this won’t bode for me well.

– wl, a.
