Struggling To Stay Healthy In the 40s : Reversing Diabetes Type 2

I was diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 in early May 2022 which is right after Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I was devastated by the result. All this while, I was very careful with the sugar intake. I don't really drink a sugary drink. I prefer black with no sugar for my coffee. I chose plain water over a sugary drink. My homecooked food with no sugar added. Why? Why? The Doctor's explanation was easy, your parent may have diabetes. This is inheritance. I was like...Duh!!!! I prefer monetary inheritance rather than bad genes.  The doctor said not time to be too upset over this. I give you 3 weeks to reverse this since you are confident, that you are leading a healthy lifestyle. No medication will be prescribed at this moment. Please come back for the test again in 3 weeks' time.  So...this is like, I was given a second chance? God Bless! I went back home with a sworn to do a very strict diet. At the same time, I read there is an Ayurveda method to drink curry leaves powder with warm w

Which Covid-19 Vaccines Should I take?

  I am not sure about you but personally, feel confused about the many types of vaccines available. It's not that we are spoiled with choices. It just a matter of what good and suitable for our body. I bet many of us want the best for ourselves and our family. Do you know that the concept now is to take as it is or wait for your turn again?  When the Malaysian Government announced on the AstraZeneca vaccines will be a giveaway on a voluntary basis, I was sceptical. I can't make the decision at all. While all my family members snatch out the opportunities, here I am still unable to make my own decision. I just can't decide on this at all. Why? Lack of knowledge and so ignorant on getting to know what is what. At least, I want to know where is the origin of this vaccine and the success rate of the trial and much more information needed. Another consideration needed is whether this is suitable for an Asian body since we live in different climates and so on. Did I think too muc

My First Virtual Run

  Hello World! As I was about to write this post, just realize my one and only beloved smartphone (LiRong) is giving up his life.  LiRong has been with me for many years now. I think it's about time for me to let him go peacefully soon. I am trying my best to scout for LiRong replacement. Heol! Why am I all excited to find a new one? Bad Rina! No sense of loyalty at all. huhuhuhuh Anyway, back to my title, my first virtual run.... the story begin when I was sitting on my treadmill after my usual morning walk. I manage to complete on 2km that day. My knee is giving up even at 1km. Adding another 1km was a heavy task for me. Even until yesterday, I feel suffering to the max just to complete 1km. By the way, I did wear a knee guard to protect my bad knee. The pain will suffer throughout the week every time after the morning walk. I have been turning my feeling off. Ignoring the pain for my whole well being sake. I shut myself off and decided not to pamper myself with such at the self

For Women Over 40

Lately, I was feeling lethargic and lack of energy to carry myself around. I exercise and do stretching daily without fail. What else I need to do? I was puzzled myself. I read and browse around and found out about the balanced diet and nutrition. It's impossible to take get some of that nutrition in daily diet. Especially when I am in the range of above 40 years old women who is still recovering from knee surgery. I am struggling to keep my body healthy these days. Muscles Loss My muscles have diminished a lot from that surgery and knowing my body who loves to accumulate fat than muscles, I definitely need to do something about this.  Even a healthy adult can lose 8% of muscle every decade. I can imagine me? me? Gosh! I don't even want to calculate my losing percentage. No wonder!!!! I feel this way. At age 40, women lose muscles mass twice as fast as men. Sadly, most of the loss occurs in core muscles which supports the abdomen. This is why the belly f
