Fun Food Fitness 2016

Jeunesse Anion – Fun Food Fitness 2016 from LaineyLovesLife on Vimeo.

I rarely attend social events but when I do, I make sure I really participate. And because anything that concerns health goes on top of my goal funnel, I took a few hours off being a nanny to my only son so I could dance Zumba with Philippines’ dance diva, Regine Tolentino.

Gosh, she’s so beautiful and fit! With her sexy dance moves, I can tell why she hasn’t aged a bit. Regine, together with her friends, taught us some crazy Zumba moves! That afternoon was fun and really exhilarating! Liberating too, because I haven’t done this since I learned I was pregnant.

And just like how gym rats would secretly go to their favourite resto to reward themselves for the hardwork, we ate some good food! Woohoo! It’s a shame I wasn’t able to take photos of the buffet but I can assure you that we had HEALTHY food. Good food doesn’t need to be all dull and bland. Marriott Hotel served us guilt-free and satisfying dishes.

While enjoying our healthy meals, celebrity chef and mom Len Santos-Ding had a demo of her guilt-free, easy-peasy one pan meals. The dishes were tagged as one-pan meals because you literally need just one pan to cook each and it only takes a few minutes to prepare each meal. This wondermom is great at what she does, and you can trust her taste in food. Chef Len advocates healthy eating. No matter how busy we are, we should skip the junk and eat healthy food, no matter how busy, no matter how tired.

And like the typical OC mom, she throws in her pan ONLY the healthy stuff. In her demos, she used Doña Elena pasta and olive oils, and Clara Olé dressings. Jeunesse Anion wouldn’t partner with them if they’re not the best so I did a little research about these brands too and they’re absolutely the healthy kind. Eversince I found these two, Doña Elena and Clara Olé have been staples in my grocery basket. When we have guests at home or when we’re too lazy to go out to get merienda, we have pasta and sauces ready. We don’t even put condiments anymore because Clara Ole sauces taste rich and yummy.

I had loads of fun at this event and I’m sure other moms had a blast too! It was a treat for hardworking moms who deserve a break.:) Off to the kitchen now to cook some healthy dishes! Thanks Jeunesse Anion for another great event!


Get Glowing and Gorgeous this Holiday Season

Here are some helpful tips from Jeunesse Anion, a sanitary napkin brand I trust. My friend also happens to know Philippine-US registered dietitian nutritionist Cheshire Que, RND, RN, RDN. We run to her for anything that’s related to diet. Lose those pounds the healthy way through guided dieting.

‘Tis the season to be merry and healthy! From Christmas parties, family reunions, and series of night outs, there’s simply no room for stress, break outs, and bloating.

However, the dog days of El Niño plus your monthly visit can only heighten the symptoms of PMS, which certainly doesn’t spell like fun to us. So learn a trick or two from Philippine-US registered dietitian nutritionist Cheshire Que, RND, RN, RDN and Fellow of Philippine Dermatological Society and Medical Director of The Skin Specialist’s Dr. Jean Marquez to make sure you’re glowing and gorgeous this holiday season.

Fried, sweets, and rich foods, who can resist? While it’s no sin to indulge for the merry season of Christmas, the key is to eat mindfully and moderately. “Fuel up before you go to a party. Have cereal or oatmeal with fruits, which are loaded with fiber and antioxidants–it’s a simple way of keeping yourself from noshing too much carbs and fats. Take time to scan the spread and carefully choose what you’d like to have before piling them up on your plate, which should include veggies, protein, and healthy amount of fats such as salmon. Don’t miss a bowl of clear soup or glass of water before the meal begins, hydration is crucial for efficient metabolism and beating the bloat”, says dietitian-nutritionist Cheshire.

While it’s a temptation to delay and neglect sleep during the holidays, know that it’s bad for your hormones, which affects the appetite and cravings by making the body want to eat more. And here’s a motivation to seriously aim for the 7-8 fully restorative hours of shut-eye according to Dr. Jean: toning, lightening of dark circles around the eye, and preventing breakouts. “It’s also the ultimate skin anti-aging that costs zero”, adds Dr. Jean.

The worst part of having an all jacked up hormones during PMS (namely estrogen and progesterone) are a bad case of mood swings, anxiety, and irritability. Jeunesse Anion Sanitary napkin and liners are not only equipped with a special soft top sheet material with quick absorbing properties, superior liquid-retention made of dirt-free and sterilized virgin pulp, breathable bottom layer, non-toxic adhesive to keep material intact, its special anion chip defines the difference which helps to prevent bacteria, reduce feminine discomfort, and helps eliminate unwanted odors. In addition, recent research at the University of California proves that negative ions stabilize serotonin levels of the brain heightening a person’s positive outlook and mood. Need we say more?

As a conclusion, we can’t help but say it again: exercise and get moving! In fact, nutritionist-dietitian Cheshire only requires a total of 1-½ hours of moderate intensity exercise weekly to increase the system’s capacity to burn calories and to prevent those unsightly Santa belly. And aside from Dr. Jean who swear by its glowing effect for the skin, exercise releases endorphins which produces feelings of euphoria, so you’re always on the go and ready to party for the entire holiday season!

#PositivelyBetter Womanhood with Jeunesse Anion

Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Pad NapkinIf there’s one thing about me that I’m proud of, it’s my preference to spend on things that truly matter before considering to buy things that are less important. I’m not saying other women are wrong for buying things that they want; it’s their money not mine. I’m just proud to have come up with a priority list that surely takes care of my family’s future.

The first five items on my list are related to health: insurance, investment, accident or critical illness, hospitalization, death. Just in case something happens, everything’s covered. I believe prevention is better than cure so I also included in my list: healthy food, healthy products, and relaxation.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious. From buying just about anything cheap or splurging on just about anything popular, we become more particular with the health benefits and harmful chemicals in products that we consume.

Even before I became pregnant, I’ve already started using anion sanitary pads. It’s just early this year that I discovered Jeunesse Anion and I choose to stay healthy by sticking to a brand that protects me. It offers tons of benefits ordinary pads can’t do.

  • Top cover is made of non-woven material so it feels comfy, soft, and smooth. It doesn’t fluff and it’s lint-free even if you use it for a longer time.
  • The anion strip emits negatively charged molecules, that help keep women fresh and dry down there.
  • It has superior liquid retention. You don’t have to worry about leaks.
  • The bottom layer allows free flow of air. Goodbye foul odor and moisture!

If you aren’t using anion sanitary pads, I suggest you switch to Jeunesse Anion. This is the healthier option. It helps prevent a myriad of reproductive diseases and disorders.

NO, they didn’t pay me to write this. I just want more women to understand that we should learn how to live wiser and #positivelybetter. I’m going to be a mom soon and my goal is to keep myself healthy so I could spend many happy years with my son. I’ve pledged to go for healthy options because another life will be entrusted to me.

I always wear long pads but I’m pregnant so I’ve been saving money on sanitary pads for months now. 😊 I’m still using panty liners though..

What Your Cravings Really Mean

What Your Cravings Really Mean

Cooked leafy green vegetables to replace my chocolate cravings? NOOOOOOOOO!!! Read the entire article and skim/scan till you get to CHOCOLATE!

Eating healthy can come as a struggle for many of us, what with our crazy work schedules and propensity for sugary, salty, yummy foods (did someone say pizza?). But sometimes, the not-so-great-for-you foods that you crave can actually tell you something super important about what your body needs.
