Make Smarter and Healthier Choices with the New Crunch App!

 

Calories in, calories out. Counting calories helps us achieve our weight goals, regardless of whether you want to lose or gain weight, or maybe even to maintain your current weight. Since beauty starts from within, it is important for us to keep track of what we eat and make an extra effort to workout to achieve those #bodygoals!

However, it can be difficult to keep track of what we eat throughout the day, and let alone count all those calories that we consume and burnt.

So how about a weight management app that can check on our calorie intake? What’s more, it can also satisfy our foodfie needs, and allows us to share our OOTD of our latest sports gear?

What is Crunch?

[Review] My Marie France Bodyline Slimming Experience

 

I have been stuffing myself so much over the festive period that I had developed a little extra pooch around my midsection. So no prizes for guessing, but one of my new year resolutions was to lose that flabby tummy. And this is where Marie France Bodyline comes into the picture, well known for their professional consultation services and individually tailored slimming programmes with the latest technologies, plus the fact that they are the reason behind Fann Wong’s fabulous figure now. I knew that I was in good hands.

Prive Aesthetics 360 ShapeUp Program Recap!

I used to own many tight fitting dresses before I had gotten pregnant. After delivering, I had stopped wearing most of them even though I did manage to lose most of my pregnancy weight eventually. I just felt very conscious of my tummy and would prefer to wear something that could conceal it. But not anymore…

Ever since I had undergone the Prive 360 Shape Up Program, I have managed to slim down my tummy. I am now much more confident wearing these body-hugging dresses.

Lost inches off my tummy!

I just had my final session at Prive Aesthetics before the CNY. I thought I won’t be able to survive having to eat and live a healthier lifestyle but I managed somehow! Just to share some tips on how I tried to control my diet. I thought it would be tough on me because I am quite a pig and I never control what I eat.

Throughout this period, I had abstained from fast food and bubble tea. To cut down on the amount of food I take in daily, I even resorted to using a bowl instead of a large plate. I am so used to doing this now, it feels like a normal daily routine for me. And I guess all these along with the laser lipo treatment and fat burner supplements have helped me to lose more inches!

2nd Session With Prive Aesthetics, Check Out How Many Inches I’ve Lost!

I just had my 2nd session of treatment at Prive Aesthetics for the 360 ShapeUp Programme. This time round, we had it done on my thighs. If you have not read about my first treatment experience, do check it out HERE. We had the Laser Lipo done on my thighs, unlike traditional Liposuction, this treatment is non-invasive and hence, much safer. The lasers would break down fat cells which was then released through the lymph nodes. Margie took my measurements again so that we could do a comparison after the treatment.

Guess what? I lost 1cm on my right thigh and 1.5cm on my left thigh. In fact, the results were quite obvious. These are the photos I took immediately after the treatment in the toilet. Continue reading

Something Interesting From My 1st Visit To Prive Aesthetics

Here is something interesting from my 1st visit to Prive Aesthetics. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I am currently on the 360 ShapeUp Programme. Check out the first video to learn why I decided to give this programme a try.

And if you are interested in the 360 ShapeUp Programme, you should watch the video below, where we have the friendly Margie from Prive Aesthetics explaining to me about everything I needed to know on the 360 ShapeUp Programme.

My First Session With Prive Aesthetics For The 360 ShapeUp Programme

Remember I mentioned that I intended to lose my excess pregnancy weight and I had made an appointment with Prive Aesthetics to find out more about their 360 ShapeUp Programme? Well, last monday was my first appointment!

I was excited and nervous at the same time but their friendly consultant, Margie made me feel just at home there. I told Margie about my pregnancy weight gain woes and my current lifestyle. I wanted to know what solutions Prive Aesthetics could offer to aid me in my quest for a slimmer body.

She shared with me about the 360 ShapeUp Programme, which is a specially tailored slimming programme that involves medically-approved machines for slimming and contouring treatments, a nutritious diet plan, all-natural health supplements and daily exercise. I was given my own journal to track my daily food intake as part of the programme.

Next, I went for a detailed body analysis before Margie could recommend treatments for me. She took down details which included my weight, height, BMI and body measurements. As I had excess weight around my tummy and thighs. She suggested that I try the Laser Lipo to tackle the stubborn fats around my tummy.

Life As A Working Mom

photo-9

As a working mom of an active 10 month old, I don’t reallyhave much time to myself. In the day, I’m busy at my full time job. And once I am off work, I try to spend as much time as I can with my little one before he goes to bed. Being a boy, he can be quite a handful. We play together after my dinner and sometimes, if he is in the mood for some reading. We would cuddle together in his play yard and read his favourite board books. Then before you know it, it’s almost close to midnight. I usually just have enough time to shower and pack some orders for my online shop before hitting the sack. What a day, right?

minionsgymSo it’s really no surprise that I don’t have the time or energy to head down to the gym for a workout. And I’m too easily tempted by good food to even start dieting. This isn’t going too well for me since I have put on additional weight during pregnancy and it stayed with me even after I had given birth. At this rate, I’ll probably end up looking like….

Gloria the Hippo from the movie Madagascar, especially now with my wider hips and thighs. I don’t think I can even wear jeans with confidence like before. And yet, I stay clear off slimming pills because I don’t really think this is a safe method to lose weight.

I am looking for alternative slimming methods which are more natural and healthy. That’s when I stumbled upon an article on Traditional Chinese Medicine and slimming. And no, I’m not referring to slimming through acupuncture because I don’t really fancy having needles all over me in the name of beauty.

But I won’t mind trying out some other TCM methods which do not require needles or the need to diet. Who would have thought, right? TCM does not just cure ailments but to also lose weight.

According to this Yahoo article, TCM is all about the Qi.

In the view of TCM, weight regulation is not primarily about calorie intake and expenditure. It’s about fortifying, channeling, and sustaining qi. Fortifying qi raises your metabolism, and provides you with an invigorating feeling of well-being.

If the qi in the digestive system is strong, your body will be able to optimally transform the food you eat into energy you can use. Two of the factors that weaken qi are excessive stress and inadequate sleep. Prolonged stress and sleep deprivation raise levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which causes the body to store, rather than burn, fat. “

Yes, stress and sleep deprivation sounds like me! I would love to try some TCM to fortify my Qi and gain my previous body shape.
