It’s grad week next week! I can’t believe I’m almost done with college. Soon I will be Anna Christen D. Magbanua, SLP officially.
4 years in the making. 4 years of being an Iskolar ng Bayan. 4 years that seemed to be so long but went by too fast. Here’s to the next chapter of my life! :)
In UP, we also wear a “sablay” besides the toga. :P

#me #hospitalization #sick #thin
The changes my face went through in a span of 2 weeks.
This is not a progress picture, really. I didn’t work to get to a thinner face. This is the result of infection and hospitalization. Huhu.
The first picture, was the normal me, with the holiday weight on. LOL. Start of the year, start of clinical duty again. Then the 2nd picture was me in the hospital. I bloated like crazy. The picture does not do justice to the craziness that went on in my life for 2 weeks. Fever, pain, chills, so much medications, IV, etc. My stomach looked like I was a 5-6 month preggy lady. Huhu.
Then the 3rd picture shows me just 3 days ago. I lost a lot of fat on my face (though it doesn’t show on the scale :P). Seriously, my face got so deep. It looked like I was a zombie or something. I still look sick now.
So why am I posting this? Someone I know commented about how, even if getting sick sucks, it’s still amazing cause you lose weight. NO. It is not. I look like a dead person right now. It’s like I lost the life in me. I can barely eat. And once I get my appetite back, I’m just going to gain it all over again and make it harder for me lose once more.
So to those who think losing weight is everything. It isn’t. If you want to get thinner, the healthy way is the best way. I know I should be happy because I SOMEHOW am nearer my goal, but no, I am not. Because the ultimate goal is to live a healthy and balanced life. I want to be strong, healthy, and fit, not just thin.

#christmas #me #personal #my family sucks #no traditions #working out #exercise #fitness #fitblr #weight loss
Merry Christmas!!! :D
And since my family sucks and does not really care for any Christmas tradition, I shall just go work out now and put this vestib ball my college friend gave me into good use. I shall just celebrate Christmas by myself by getting a little endorphin rush: 30 minutes on the rope and another 30 for body weight training. Gotta get rid of some of the holiday weight + internship weight. Lol.
Hoping your Christmases are far better than mine! :)

#beach #me #summer #healthy #Insanity #stress free #radiant #fitness #fit #happy #fitblr
I miss summer and I miss the life I used to have before internship started. I looked so radiant (yes, I am calling myself radiant. LOL) and stress-free in these pictures. Well, I did Insanity 6x a week and ate like I was preparing for battle everyday(a lot, but all healthy food) which is why I was healthy and fit and happy. Can I have this phase of my life back, pleaseeeee. :(

#hair color #hair dye #hairstyle #virgin hair #revlon #brown #caramel brown #me
Virgin hair no more!! For almost 20 years, my hair has been untouched by all these hair treatments, but today, I colored my hair!! I said I’d color it on my 20th, but I realized internship would have already begun by then, so I colored it a little less than 2 weeks before my birthday. Hihi. I only colored it a shade of brown that’s lighter than my real hair color because all I really wanted was that—a light shade of brown. Hihihi. :>

#tennis #racket #Liam #gut #string tension #Wilson #finally! #:D #me
YEY! My racket finally got gutted! :D I can’t remember when I broke the strings and ever since I had to use a spare, or my father’s to play. Their strings were gutted to a tension of like 50 or something; I need mine in at least 60 because I like it tight for more control. Hihi.
I’ve had this racket(I named it Liam) since before I even started playing tennis, that was like 6 years ago, that’s why I love it so much. :>

#Jamba Juice #tumbler #Robinson's Manila #smoothies #me
Hi guys! Sorry I’ve been super MIA. I’ve so busy with school, I don’t even get to exercise much anymore. Anyway, I got a Jamba Juice tumbler from a branch in Robinson’s Manila. I’m super happy there’s a branch near my school now. I get to have my Jamba fix once in a while. :P But I bought this so that I have a nice Jamba Juice feel at home when I make my smoothies. Hihi.
P.S. I have no idea why my face looks so shocked. HAHAHAHA. But I do know why I look so haggard. This was taken a few minutes after an hour and a half of tennis. LOL.
