I’m Stephie, The Maniac. Maniac with work, that is… and well, a couple of other things. Ok, I’ll admit it. I can’t stop eating. I don’t know if I’m what you will call fat, exactly, but I do know I’m far from my ideal weight. The right numbers on the scale. You see, I do so many things everyday. Aside from my supposedly eight-hour job which is usually an eleven-hour job (yo bosses, I’m keeping track. don’t dare cut the OT pay), I also manage our small cafe with my brother and sister, who both have even busier lives. Plus I am a keyboardist in a band.
While I love what I do, it does take its toll on my body, and on my dependence on food. It’s my comfort zone – whenever stress takes over, I just reach for that blackforrest slice and viola, I’m all good. I do enjoy being a young urban professional and having a full life, but do I have to sacrifice my “figure” or lack of it, for that matter, so I can take on all my duties better?
I think nay. And today, at this very moment, I create this blog with a mission: to be healthy again. I know many young workaholics are in the same boat; we want so much to be healthy but have no time at all. So let’s join forces, ladies. And gays and men. We can be healthy, and I do think there are lots of ways to control your weight or your appetite. I’m just often too stressed to think about it; much less have time to think about it.
Join me as I search for the answers and share to you my plight to health and wellness amidst this crazy, crazy life I lead.
