It's Friday folks. Is it your favorite day? Growing up in Kuala Terengganu, that was definitely my favorite day (besides Thursday) because Friday is a weekend over there.
And even now, Friday is still my favorite day because the next day is Saturday. And also because on Friday, I allow myself to go out and eat Curry Mee. LOL!
Coming back to my post title, as you know I torture myself (not all the time) with weight issues. I found two videos on Youtube which you may find interesting.
First one is Claire Sweeney's My Big Fat Diet, where this lovely actress let's herself go and eats whatever she likes for 6 weeks and faced the consequences. Very familiar situation - happens to me everytime when I go back to Kuala Terengganu hah..hah...
And the second video I found so inspiring, Elle Ip's Beyond Expectations. This Australian mother of two began her journey to become fit in 10 months to enter a sports modelling competition. Looking at her post pregnancy, it was hard to imagine her achieving her goal. But she did it.
I am not advocating that we should all look like that or suggesting that I aspire to look like Elle. Her story illustrates the power of determination and it is her conviction to go against the odds to succeed that I find truly inspiring. We should all apply a little bit of that in our life.
Have a great weekend!
