How To Stay Healthy If You Don’t Have Time For The Gym

DSC01936

If you are a working gal like me, your only chance to work out is waking up at the crack of dawn or running to the gym straight out of work, but when six o’ clock strikes motivation is nowhere to be found! So how can a career girl/boy like yourself stay healthy?


Watch TV and…

Got a few TV series you need to catch up on? I know I do! One of my lazy, but super effective tricks to hitting two bird with one stone is exercising while watching TV. Whether you are doing some squats, leg lifts or cycling, just keep moving!

Workout From Home

Exercising at home works for a lot of people especially when they aren’t so comfortable with exercising in public yet. Trade in a Netflix show for a 30 minutes workout show or Try using the NikeFit app!

Commute To Work

If you live a few blocks away from your work, you might be better off walking the extra mile than taking the bus or the train there. Burn whatever calories you can before you are stuck sitting at your desk!

Make Working Out A Thing

Working out can easily become a time for you to catch up with your friends instead of catching up over a bottle of wine. Take a walk outside with the girls. Nature can do wonders for your quality of life!

Take The Stairs

I am SO guilty of this. I always prefer taking the lift or the escalator. Take the stairs or maybe even run up them. You can even skip some steps to add some extra workout points! You will be burning calories and toning your legs at the same time.

LOL…You might have been expecting a makeup favorites. But I honestly can’t get over how great this month has been! No weekends sleeping in or just lazying around! I was so productive and had a social life(surprisingly). So this is me sharing my month, if you guys don’t mind. 😉


This past month has been absolutely hectic! With all my weekends booked and too many deadlines to finish, I would find myself passed out on my bed with not much energy left after a full day of work and such. But I am definitely not complaining! I am SO grateful for everything that I have and all the people I have in my life.

The month started of celebrating my late birthday on Labor Day weekend at the beach or how I would like to call it, #LaborBeyWeekend! with my friends and family, plus we had a Luau night that was Moana themed! I definitely felt that my life came in full circle that night with all my favorite people in 1 room!

I was so lucky this month to have 2 amazing beach weekends(with great weather and company). I got to spend some quality time with some of my family from overseas and just catching up with rest of my family in general. If you can’t tell yet, I love family time!

Then my workmates and I took a weekend trip in the wilderness for our summer outing. I was a little but hesitant at first because I knew that we were going to be roughing it a bit. But I definitely have #NORAGRETS after that weekend. I got to know my workmates more and made some lovely memories with them too!

Netflix Documentaries That You Have To Watch

netflix docs

I seriously love the fact that in today’s day in age, we don’t actually need cable to watch our favorite shows. Since us millennials usually rely on social media to get the latest scoop or news in general. With all this technology now, an easy and affordable internet subscription is literally all you need, whether in be Netflix, iFlix, Amazon Prime or Hulu.

If it isn’t obvious yet, I am a Netflix user and these are a few of my favorite documentaries that you can easily click through over there!


Chef’s Table | If you are into degustation and seeing how these fancy restaurants come up with their out of this world dishes, this might be your TV show. Although not as casual as Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown or No Resevations, but it is still worth a watch! Tip: probably not the best idea to watch this before you head to bed for obvious reasons…

Abstract The Art of Design | The art and design bug in me just bursted for joy when I heard about this series coming out! Its shows literally art in all shapes and forms, with the master’s behind it. This documentary just shows that there is definitely more than meets the eye and so SO much though is put in creating an art form or anything for that matter.

The People Versus O.J. Simpson | As a self-proclaimed Kardashian fan, I was more inclined to watch this because Kim K’s dad is one of the main stars on this film. But in all seriousness, I just wanted to be more informed of one of the biggest crime stories. ever. 

Tales By Light | I was instantly hooked on to this series as soon as I watched the 1st episode. This documentary is a perfect mix of beautiful cinematography, travel and nature. The directors/photographers/filmmakers captured their surroundings so beautifully. It will seriously be a feast for your eyes if you are into good film making and travel photography.

Metropolis | If you are interested on how our great ancient cities were made, down to the government, infrastructure, transportation and architecture. This might be your fave documentary! Each episode tells a story of a different city, even of city that date from Before Christ! Crazy! Go watch!

Twinsters | Of all the documentaries on this list, this has got to be the one that got me crying like a baby! A story of twin sisters separated at adoption and how they find their way back to each other. It makes me wish I had a sister! 😥

Cowspiracy | It has been over a year now that I have decided to give up red meat (pork, beef, lamb, etc.) Naturally, at first, I was feeling uneasy about the decision I made. But after watching Before The Flood and Cowspiracy, it gave me more reasons to continue to give up those types of meat. It shows what kind of impact humans have on the world. Powerful stuff.
