on having Healthy Options

Last week, I planned to start a diet that involved just eating cereals, muesli and fresh fruits. But on my second day of diet, our bosses started treating us for dinner at McDonalds and unlimited breakfast buffet at Marco Polo Hotel. Who am I to refuse food? Being that I for one  really appreciate good and yummy free food, there’s no option for me to decline the opportunity.  Hehehe  My colleagues even reminded me that I was supposed to be on a diet and I told them that it’s my cheat day 😆 I know I know, I need to have discipline if I am to get serious with losing weight. But still, who can resist eating food if your mom is a great cook? And with KFC around, waaaaaaaa!!!

Anyway, I am glad that the Healthy Options store in Ayala Center is around. Leah introduced me to eating cereals and muesli so I took the liberty to try and see if this form of diet will work for me again.

I went to Healthy Options at their new location in Ayala and I was awed at how wonderful their store looked. I wish I lived in a home like that. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the store and I was carefully taking stolen shots of the place coz I might get reprimanded or something.

My diet plan.

A mixture of Bob’s Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli and Health Valley’s Heart Wise Cereal with Low Fat Fresh Milk. The Muesli has to be soaked for 5-10 minutes before one can consume it. Some would even soak it overnight.


Muesli and cold cereal already stored in its plastic containers


The muesli I bought before had the same packaging so I bought this item by mistake. I realized the error when I reached home. I immediately called up the store to ask if I can exchange the item and they said I have 14 days to replace it. I went back at Healthy Options the following day and asked for Muesli coz I can’t start the diet without it. They already discontinued selling the Health Best brand so I was given the Bob’s Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli instead.


Healthy Option’s new home is in the Terraces of Ayala Center Cebu

The problem with this diet is that I love eating cereals so instead of me being on a diet, I think I’m trying to eat more than I’m supposed to. *sigh* How I wish I could drag my lazy ass to our treadmill and start sweating off the pounds I gained after stopping gym last year.

Hopeless…hopeless…hopeless… well I hope not for long! Otherwise, I’m doomed!

P.S. I forgot to take a picture of the milk but I bought one too..Low Fat from Nestle 😆
