Here's How You Can Stay Fit Just Like Jennifer Lawrence
X-Men and The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is one of our favorite role models. Not only because of the powerful women she plays on the big screen (hello, Mystique and Katniss!), but also because she's been very vocal about loving the body you have. She proves that staying fit and healthy and strong doesn't mean giving up the things you love (that would be sad, right?) but finding balance—eating and sweating it out.
JLaw's trainer Dalton Wong released his book The Feelgood Plan and it was where it was revealed in the foreword, written by the actress herself, that he trained her for X-Men: First Class, saying, "Dalton is different to other trainers because he understands what my body needs to look its best—how to exercise, when to allow time to unwind, how to enjoy food," she wrote. "I could never live on a 'diet' and instead Dalton has taught me how to eat, move and live a delicious but healthy life. I will always thank him for that. I'm so happy he has written a book with such a wonderful message." (via TheDailyMail.co.uk)
Check out some of his advice on how you, too, can stay healthy and happy below.
1. Eat right. Eat only when you are hungry and stop when you're full. The key is to be grateful for what you have and choose the kinds of food that will make you feel full longer. Dalton's recommendations: "Your key ingredients are protein, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates." The smallest changes can go a long way.
2. Don't forget to treat yourself. Treat yourself to a burger, a bar of chocolate, or even a scoop of ice cream. You don't have to deprive yourself of your favorite food just because you want to be healthier.
3. Exercise to feel happier. Sometimes, all you really need is to release the stress. Choose the type of workout that you enjoy—dancing, aerobics, or running. Dalton says that sugar isn't always the answer when you're feeling tired. "You can get more energy from exercise or simply chilling out. Sugar isn't the solution," he said.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
