Make MEGAFIBER your travel companion

Bags packed and ready to go on vacation? Make sure you’ve got everything you need from travel documents, cash and credit cards, appropriate clothing, toiletry bag basics, to vitamins and medicines. You will also need MEGAFIBER to counter constipation or diarrhea attack that can potentially ruin your holiday. Constipation and diarrhea are two common woes that spoil the fun for travelers.

Travel constipation can be due to a sudden change in your usual diet. It may also be caused by a disruption in your daily routine or bathroom habit. If you’re on the road at the time when you ordinarily relieve yourself, the tendency is to suppress the urge to move. Not going when you needed to results to hardened stools. The unease of using other bathroom facilities can also prevent you from doing your thing.

As for diarrhea, most people point to contaminated food or water as the culprit. Eating at the wrong time and trying various delicacies or local dishes for the first time can also lead to diarrhea while on vacation.

MEGAFIBER Product Shot - Groupshot 2017

MEGAFIBER effectively treats both constipation and diarrhea. It is available at Mercury Drug outlets nationwide in bigger 7.5g travel sachets, available per piece (P11) and boxes of 30 sachets (P325), and in bigger 300g jars (P430). It is also offered in half-kilo family size packs (P705) for even greater savings. Each MEGAFIBER sachet and jar packs more fiber goodness to give more value for your money.

If constipated, take one tablespoon of MEGAFIBER mixed with your favourite drink ideally during breakfast, and drink lots of fluids all day. When MEGAFIBER absorbs liquids, it forms a slippery film and swells by 8 to 14 times its normal weight and forms a soft, bulky mass that passes quickly and easily through the colon and acts like a sponge in the intestinal tract. It also helps stimulate the reflex needed for the bowels to empty. Since MEGAFIBER is a non-irritant bulking laxative, it does not result in an immediate need to find a toilet which can be embarrassing.

If suffering from diarrhea, you will also benefit from MEGAFIBER since it not only absorbs water from watery stools, its bulking effect slows down the bowel and reduces bowel movement, reducing the number of times that you must go to the bathroom. Increased intake of fiber absorbs excess water in stools and consequently allows the intestinal muscles something to hold on to. Unlike other medication, taking new MEGAFIBER to stop diarrhea does not result in constipation. When treating diarrhea, take the same dose of MEGAFIBER and lessen your fluid intake.

Aside from promoting digestive health, MEGAFIBER also helps regulate blood sugar and uric acid, reduces cholesterol, and assists in weight management. It is FDA-approved and is all-natural. It does not contain additives, sweeteners, preservatives, artificial colors or flavoring. It is also cholesterol-free, yeast-free and gluten-free. It is nothing but 100% psyllium fiber, nature’s best and most efficient source of natural dietary fiber.

Fitness : Half Marathon Goal Unlocked

21k mapawa trail run
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

When the year 2017 opened, I made some goals for myself to accomplish within the year. In my Fitness goals list is finishing a 21 kilometers run or a half-marathon run. So January I started cross training, from just doing strength/weights training at the gym, I included running at least twice a week. I normally do road runs with friends and late afternoon long runs at the sports complex.

mapawa trail run 2017

So finally on May 28th, that goal to finish a half marathon is ticked off my goal list for the year! I joined the Mapawa Trail Run along with my fitness buddies Elena and Glen. I was honestly hesitant to join at first because I didn’t think I’ll be able to endure it! My longest run so far was 11km and those were done on flat surfaces. But this one? hey! we are talking about trail run here and it’s a half marathon trail run!

Trail running is a sport which consists of running and hiking over trails. In the United Kingdom and Ireland it is called mountain or fell running. … Runners often cite less impact stress compared to road running, as well as the landscape and non-urban environment, as primary reasons for preferring trail running.

But because my friends were so persistent, we registered anyway — one week before the event! crazy right? Well, we are all constantly working out so I guess the strength is already there. I just had to battle that self-doubt and start believing in myself. It was our first time to join a half marathon trail run and given the short time, we could only do so much to prepare. So one week before the trail run, we did a “test ourselves” run on a route me and Elena didn’t run before (thanks to Glen for leading). We ran a total of 18.75km in 2 hours and 20 minutes on a bit challenging route. So since we actually made it, we were confident we’d be able to conquer the trail run.

Gym Makeup Tips

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I have a little fitness secret to tell you. I wear makeup at the gym when I workout. Shhh… Okay, okay, before you go ahead jump and judge me, let me tell you why! Well I just don’t like going out there bare faced considering that I have to be travelling at least 30 minutes going to the gym. I do commute so you’d understand that I would want to look at least presentable with people around while I am just sitting there with my earphones on listening to my music list. And hey! The gym is a room full of mirrors, who doesn’t want to look good? Haha!

Anyway, I don’t really go heavy on makeup when I workout because the last thing I want to have are breakouts. Sweat mixed with makeup is not good as it can clog pores causing breakouts. That is why it is not really advisable to wear makeup during workout, but if you MUST (like me) be out there a little made up, make sure you use the right products. I personally just to simply touch up my face with my few makeup must haves. Here’s my list below:

Water based moisturizer – I love to keep it lightweight. Water based moisturizer is just refreshing to the skin while it does its job in controlling skin’s oil and shine.

Ways to Save on Home Good Purchases

There are a lot of things that a person can do to make their house or apartment feel more like a home, and one of them is decorate. Depending on what type of person you are and your likes and dislikes, you might want to keep things simple and avoid adding in a few pieces of artwork, rugs and lamps to your space. But, if you are someone who likes to show off their interests, you may find yourself on the hunt for a few home goods. Here are three ways to save on home goods. Rummage Sales People are always looking to get rid of their used home goods. Just because they no longer want the item, doesn't mean you don't. If you are looking for a few items for your home, consider stopping by a rummage sale or two to see what is out there. You may get lucky and find exactly what you are looking for and a few extras. Thrift Stores The difference between a rummage sale and thrift store is that things people no longer want are actually of quality. At a rummage sale, people will try to sell anything for a quick buck, but at a thrift store, you can be sure whatever you purchase is in good shape. Whether you are looking for an area rug, curtains or some other decorative items to complete the design of your room or home, you might just find it at a thrift store. Coupons/ Discount Codes If you don't want to purchase anything used, or just can't find what you are looking for, you do have the option to buy something new. There are thousands of retailers that have home goods available to customers. For example, Kohl's is one of the many stores people stop in when they are looking for home decor items, lamps and more. When you are a homeowner, or even just renting for the year, you want your home to look beautiful on the inside and out. It will take some work on your part, but you can have the home you want. You just have to look in the right places and know what it is you need.

Finding A Doctor

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

A primary care physician is a doctor who you will see if there are any issues with your health. You will go to the doctor when you’re sick or if you need to have a well-check to make sure that the blood levels in the body are normal and that other aspects of the body are normal. If there are any issues that arise, then the physician can refer you to a specialist who can further investigate the health issues. There are some tips to keep in mind when searching for a primary care physician Spring TX offers so that you feel comfortable talking about your health.

Keep the location of your doctor in mind. You want to find a doctor who is close to your home in the event of an emergency so that you don’t have to travel a long distance. Another location aspect to consider is that you might want to find an office that is close to work so that you can go on your lunch break or before or after you get off.

Think about your health plan. There are some doctors that might not be in your network when looking at your insurance coverage. If you find a doctor who is in the network, then it will mean paying less out of your pocket for the co-payment. You can contact the insurance group to find out who is in your network and who isn’t so that you avoid surprise charges from the insurance company.

Look for a doctor who meets the needs that you have as well as other members of the family. A primary care physician will often see everyone in the household. However, if you need to see the doctor because of heart conditions or issues with the stomach, then you need to look for one who is involved with that area of expertise. Ask the doctor for referrals. Talk to patients about the care that is provided and how the doctor talks to the patients. If you don’t feel comfortable, then you won’t want to visit the doctor and take care of your health.

Fitness: Chest and Back Workout

gym chest and back workout
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

In my almost two years in this fitness journey I have come to know my body more, its weakness and its strength. While it is very rewarding to see progress and how each body parts have developed muscles and get toned, seeing some parts of your body slowly (like seriously slowly catching up with the rest) can be very frustrating at the same time. In my case, it’s my back part! I don’t know, perhaps it’s just how it goes, the front part pretty much responded to the workout and diet then all the excess fats seemed to have camped out at my back and found it very comfortable to stay in. lol! Not for long buddies!

So this year, coach and I will be devoting a lot of effort on my back part because most of my fats seems to be loving it there as mentioned! hahaha! I know it’s not gonna be an easy journey but I have more patience to combat them stubborn back flabs! :D.

Anyway, I’m sharing with you ladies some of the routines I did to work on my chest and back on one of my sessions. My coach wasn’t around this time so I had to do my own set of routines for the day.
