Do You Share Your Genes With Your Mother?

There are many ways that you can inherit genes from your mum – you may have her loud laugh, brown eyes, and dimples.

It is common knowledge that your mother has played a huge role in the way you’ve been brought up and in shaping your life. However, when it comes to your health, you can’t blame it on your mother’s genes.

Apparently, the chief responsibility for your health falls on you. There exist risk factors that are within your control, you can manage these factors and take ownership of your health.

Lifestyle Sunday: Discovering Live Blood Analysis at Vitacare Health & Wellness Discovery Journey

Vitacare Health & Wellness Discovery Journey 1
Besides beauty, as you know health and wellness played a huge part in my current lifestyle as I embarked on adapting a healthier lifestyle to my everyday life. So when Vitacare invited me over to their store at The Gardens Mall, I jumped onto the opportunity as I was told we were going to learn about Live Blood Analysis (LBA). I was a curious cat as usual, trying to figure out in advance what is LBA. I was told there will be a live demonstration but I wasn’t told that the demonstration is an eye opening event and one would be amazed with it. Well, I was amazed alright. I walked out of Vitacare that day in awe and I am still in awe whenever the demonstration flashes back into my mind.

We get to see a few volunteer’s Live Blood Analysis that morning. The first volunteer stepped out, had her middle finger lightly poked with a needle to draw out just a small dot of blood and all of us get to sit down and look at the huge screen in front of us.

#IWillBeOkay X Clinelle Shape Up Metafit Post-Event: The Most Relaxing but Intense Campaign #4

#IWillBeOkay Shape Up Metafit 1
With a blink of an eye, #IWillBeOkay is one year old now and has entered into its 4th campaign to date. I have an aim of running a campaign every quarter but right after my #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike ended, I got a call from Clinelle asking for a collaboration. Immediately I went into planning mood. I already knew what I want as I have spoken about it for so long, even before the trail hike event. Clinelle was looking forward to “re-introduce” their Hot Body Shaper Cream and my fitness event fits the bill.

The event was supposed to happen in April, a month after 3rd campaign ended. But due to the venue issue, it was postponed to early May. Still not too bad. And since this 4th campaign happened so early, I had more time off now 😀 . Planning this Metafit event was way easier than planning a full-on outdoor event like the trail hike because of many reasons such as people management, safety, goodie bags, T-shirts and so on. Due to bad experience from the last event whereas 3 sets of goodie bags and meal was stolen, I took everyone’s advice and charge a minimum fee this time. The fee of RM35 per person is not even enough to cover the coach fee, brunch and the advertising I put on Facebook as well as Instagram. And because there is a charge this time, people are reluctant to sign up unlike the last event. Let’s not even get to the part where I get a lot of sh*t from people asking for medal, cert and many more.

#IWillBeOkay Shape Up Metafit Training: Registration OPENS! 6 May 2017, Monster Fit Gym PJ at 10.30am

#IWillBeOkay Shape Up Metafit Training
Many of you know that I run but I think not many of you know that I am also into bodyweight HIIT training as well. In fact, I sort of slowed down my running for HIIT training. And the kind of bodyweight training I am into is not the normal version but rather a more intense workout named Metafit. I spoke about having regular Metafit session for my #IWillBeOkay ‘Fight Against Depression’ Awareness Campaign for so long. Even way before I started planning for #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike event. Because the trail event needed a lot of planning so that took off first.

Initially I am skipping the coming quarter (June) campaign as I am drained out from the last event. However when Clinelle asked to collaborate for an event for their Hot Body Shaper Cream, I jumped onto the opportunity. Hence this #IWillBeOkay Shape Up Metafit Training. Clinelle Hot Body Shaper Cream AND Metafit is a perfect combination!

What Went Down at #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike Event – The Highs, Lows, and The Drama

#IWillBeOkay Trail Hike 1
Wow. I cannot believe it has been a month since #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike event was held. Everything happened so fast! The idea to have this event came right after I ended my 2nd campaign, which was the #IWillBeOkay Beauty Bag. Then the sourcing for sponsorship starts after I made a call to Ariff to ask him if he would lead the runners for my event. He said yes and I started making plans. Comparing to the beauty bag, this was much more easier as it does not involved a lot of sponsors or rather no key sponsors at all that I need to answer to. Everything was down to me and what I want basically.

Vitraplus Cabloc: My Personal Verdict After Consuming A Month Supply

Vitraplus Cabloc 1
I think I have been under a rock as I have never heard of carb blocker before this until the launch of Vitraplus Cabloc a month ago. Appetite suppression yes, fat burner yes but not carb blocker. I talked to a few friends of mine about this new product, that I was excited to try it out and guess what? They all knew there are such a supplement and I did not! And there I was on clean eating and what not lol. It seems like Vitraplus Cabloc was made as a simpler solution to those who like to eat but yet want to maintain their weight and even lose weight.
