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

Giligan's

Years ago Carmina and her mom use to go shopping every once a week to their bonding the only hobby her mom love to do. Carmina's mom would crave for inexpensive Filipino dishes we would stop by during our lunch at Giligan's Restaurant.

  Carmina decided to eat Seoul Chicken with the family by ordering Grab Food at Kko Kko Home of Seoul Chicken trying something new. Everyone had their own separate order to try something new on their own, but of course while Carmina was taking a photo shoot on each dishes cooked by Kko Kko Home of Seoul Chicken she was able to take a bite to see what food tasted on her own.

Carmina's Review on Banh Mee Express

Carmina found a reasonable price of a Bahn Mi that can fill you up from the price you pay for one sandwich you can purchase a second one to try which one you like the best. You're choices are from Lemon Grass Chicken, Pork BBQ and Beef. Carmina is not really a beef person so she didn't to opt it and go toward the two remaining flavors with all the vegetables all in tack inside the Bahn Mi. Vietnamese sandwich has always been my favorite but I haven't found the right one that can say this is the one. In other Vietnamese sandwiches I've tried before the bread is either too hard to chew or the texture of the bread doesn't seem to be fit to make it into a Bahn Mee. Finally from soul searching Bahn Mee Express has solved my solution from what I wanted from a Vietnamese sandwich the bread is soft; meat is flavored that reaches your taste buds and all the vegetables inside can savory to be combined all together to make a delicious Bahn Mee. Lemon Grass Chicke

Carmina's Review on Tuk Tuk Grilled Chicken

Just the other day I was asking my best friend what meat she normally eats for her meal since she had place herself on a diet. My best friend said she normally eat chicken to combine with her vegetables on a daily basis. I felt I wanted to switch and try and eat grilled chicken but I didn't want to eat the same places I had ordered in the past. I went on my Grab Food on my phone application to search for grilled chicken and what I saw was Tuk Tuk Grilled Chicken saying it is Thai style. I figure I have never tried Thai version grilled chicken before and the price is reasonable it had arrive in a box with a plastic bag on the chicken be packed up arriving in your home. The King Solo grilled chicken wasn't sliced up you will need to do it on your own. I decided to try their pad Thai while there was a video clip on their site  Tuk Tuk Grilled Chicken  someone cooking it for PHP 295.00 ($5.90). The pad Thai is spicy need to watch out on the chili peppers that are sliced up mixed in
