Gaining and giving health

Hello Thursday!

I’ve been getting a bit sick during the past few days, in the beginning I thought it was just the usual allergy coming back but I think I can confirm it’s some kinda cold now. Darn you aircon, why you have to feel so good! It’s no better that half the office is sick and I witnessed them coughing day in and out beforehand… Typical that it happens right before my exams but at least it’s not too bad. I’m still working and studying so everything is good. The only downside was when I was trying to do legday yesterday. I was already having a headache while arriving the gym but I still thought it was a good idea to go all out. It resulted with only having done squats, straight-legged deadlifts, leg press and when I was starting my Bulgarian splits I couldn’t get my pulse down and breathe properly. I couldn’t even do body weight. Note to my self. No more hard training until I’m feeling better.

I’ve also gotten into coffee now… after 23 years on this planet I’ve found myself in the need of coffee. Luckily I don’t need so much to spike my energy so an iced mocha or a latte keeps me going through the day. Unfortunately Thai people love to sugar it up, but, it does make it taste so damn good though. I always ask for a no sweet milk or syrup option, but there’s still no such thing as a unsweetened coffee here, haha.

It’s crazy, before I would just have a sip to then  get a headache and almost puke when consuming coffee, but now I actually need it to survive some days. I do want to add I NEVER drink it unless I don’t feel like I can function without it. Maybe 2-3 times a week. My work performance goes from 7-10 on it, haha. It might be better if I get myself a green tea-pot for future energy, for my health’s sake. Talking about health I’m obsessed with coconut oil now, I make sure to get at least one table-spoon a day, and if I cook I just switch the oil to coconut oil. Sometimes that doesn’t work as you don’t want it to taste like coconut, but if you can, do it!

I think Thai food must be my fave

We also buy coconuts in bulks so we have a fresh coconut for breakfast everyday. I swear it makes me feel like a superhuman.Though I am a bit confused why I’m sick now, haha.

Today we are heading to The Red Cross for hospital for Tom to get some vaccines and also to see if we can be of any help to Lara. I’m sure you guys have been reading about the case online. Lara is a 24-year-old Chinese-Thai-Italian student diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in December 2015 and needs a stem cell donor to save her life. Since her mixed heritage makes it hard to find a matching stem cell donor, we as half European Asian are going to see if we are a match. I encourage you all to do the same. She needs to find someone before April so it’s pretty urgent!

Have you checked if you can be a potential donor?
