Changing My Diet

Hello and how are you? I hope you are well. Because I'm not feeling that great lately.

I just got back from a check up. I suffered from skin hive lately and it was really hard for me to take this in.

What is skin hive anyway?
In my own words, skin hive is the red bump (or swollen) appear on your skin. Pretty similar to mosquito bite, but in larger forms. And it is itchy and irritating :(

Just imagine these covering your whole body... Pic source from webmd

I have a fever few days back (since last Wednesday if I can recall), and I was really sick. The doctor gave me antibiotics for a week and like a normal antibiotics routine, you have to complete it. After I consume the capsules after breakfast, nothing really happened. But later that night, I started to scratch my feet until my epidermis turns to red and bleeds a little. It is really painful.

I texted my family and let them know my condition. My brother ask me to completely stop consuming the capsules. Mama got worried because I never had this in my life before. Trust me, I look terrible :(

Unfortunately for me now, I have to be very, very strict on my diet. After few food reaction experiment, it is safe to say, I should be vegetarian. Therefore, I have to change my diet entirely. So here is my lunch today.

My husband and I went to the pharmacy yesterday and the pharmacist said my hive is considered severe because it has flared up and it looks really bad. She gave me anti-histamine to stop the hives from spreading and asks me to completely stop consuming the antibiotics. I feel extremely helpless when it comes to science and health. Dear God help me...

I know that I'm not the only one who experienced this. I'm gonna keep track my with diet to see if there's any reaction.

Road to HSN2017

Alhamdulillah, another year with TPR. I'm really blessed to be part of this wonderful team.

I'm really proud of myself and to be completely honest, I don't run as much as I did last year. But I have some other achievements as well. Might document here later ;)

I will do my first ever evening HM run this year. I'm EXTREMELY terrified (see, I put my caps onZ) with evening run. Personally I think evening run is kinda exhausting. I did couple of 10km run in the evening, but 21.1km (plus the Bukit Tunku)? Ya Allah, what am I doing?

As I'm writing this, I can feel how difficult this is going to be. But let's be positive and just do it!

I is scared!

Unfortunately, I haven't run with my Nike babes for such a long time. I really missed them. Perhaps I should fly to Sarawak and run there.

Just a quick recap, here's what I've achieved this year:
þ Obstacle Run/Challenge
þ Back to Back Run
þ Successfully pace a runner (Without "tuang")
þ Run without music

There are some other great things and happy moments happened this year and I love every second of it. Perhaps I'll write those at the end of this year.

We're in the month of October now, I can't believe we only have less than 100 days to enter 2018! Let's take a moment to say Alhamdulillah and be grateful that we are still living and breathing to this day. Let me ask you one thing, if you know that you only have another 100 days to live, what would you do? Would you stay at home thinking about your death, or would you live your life to the fullest and give your best till your last breath? The choice is in your hands :)

Let's rock this!
