Carmina's Progress for Swimsuit Challenge Summer 2023

Carmina's only problem is her tummy fats. I am almost there. The advantages for me I get a massage from Mary Ann weekly and a way our blood vessel starts to flow from our body. Mary Ann is able to remove all the knots and pain after you've exercise.  I am the lucky one since I have started since year 2020. I've already aware what exercise works for me. Plus, I've added walking around the neighborhood for thirty minutes or one hour depending on the weather conditions.  We have option to different type of exercise by searching online to see which are the best that makes us sweat continually. Mary Ann and I have been sharing which routine we are following giving each of us support in what we do daily. We have our own support team. Observation: For myself I have notice whatever weight you are there are tummy fats what food you eat doesn't matter only if you add exercise in your daily life. I weigh 119 pounds. However, the clothing and my waistline is the same no matter

Pambahay and Pantulog Clothes

When we come home from work, school from the outside we always change into our pambahay clothes. Pambahay means clothes to be worn inside the house if you have visited the Philippines you will notice most female are wearing duster that look like this: Men are wearing muscle shirt or sando with shorts since the weather is hot they tend to wear these type of clothing. The most common is white sando worn most of the time. They also wear this type of clothing when they go to sleep. They call it pantulog (sleep). Most female don’t wear duster when they sleep sometime you will see them wearing pajama if they have air conditioner in their room. Some wear long t-shirt type of duster when they sleep.

Coupon on the Sunday newspaper was so popular when I was growing up in California. We would run out in the driveway to get our newspaper and check out all the coupons we can use on an upcoming sale. We would cut up the ones we needed and discard the ones in the recycling bin. After many years has passed cutting coupons in the Sunday paper was no longer the trend people would receive coupon through email from promotion in certain stores we had subscribed from. Years later everything became paperless and when you enter a grocery store they would give you a print out on a coupon of certain product you have recently purchased. You would become a member of the Entertainment Coupon Book that comes with lots of coupons in restaurant, hotel, car service and etc. Now our coupons comes from our phone that you can just get by giving out your phone number and register it at the store. Sometimes the store requires a card to become a member to get a discount from the store
