Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

Nurse's Diary Turns Two

So I am still awake in this godly hour and eating pineapple upside down cake. We just finished watching movie and I put back the little girl to sleep. I apologize though if I have bombarded you with press releases the past days. I was just busy trying to finish a book. You know the feeling of not putting it down and just simply continue reading right? But if I can only do it more often while sitting on a lazy boy with a hot tea or coffee beside me everyday, then it would be bliss. But it doesn’t mean the little rowdy kids in my house doesn’t give me equal happiness, in fact we practice already moments of silence everyday wherein each of us would read books. I read a novel while the kids would scan and share each other’s books. And yeah, I love watching them, it’s just total bliss.

This cyber place of mine is two years already today. Hurraaaay! I am also a year older and wiser today. While Boboy was preoccupied of prepping for my birthday trip, it’s just so funny how he blames his runny nose for confusing him as to when is my birthday. Well, I guess I have to live with the fact that he really is an epic fail for surprises. Aren’t you Boboy?

Anyway, this day I would like to make pledges to a happier me as I continue with my journey towards my 100 happy days (follow me by the way on instagram).

  • Stay away from negative people. Hide all the negative entities from all my social media. I must admit that my life revolves in social media but it just pains me eveytime I see statuses on facebook about unnecessary rants and bashing of other people. It’s just way out of my league already. I mean, isn’t exhausting to see things like that and how much more being preoccupied meddling people’s lives? I couldn’t imagine a life of a bully person.
  • Read more books especially inspirational books. Being stuck in a rut inside the four corners of my house with tots to take care of, I think I needed some other ways in order for my mind to keep on track. I am not saying I am close to being schizophrenic but I need something that will keep my parenting more fun and more inspiration to have a good relationship with my family.
  • Write from the heart. The only way that I will be able to write and compose a tasteful post is when I write from the heart. As what we always say in nursing, in order to take care of our patients well is we should be empathic rather than being sympathetic.



That’s all for now, time to get some beauty rest.
