Meet Mr. Excuses

I'm done with my assignments for Mr. Sheriff on my other blog! Hurray!

I'm not working out today. I feel tired and my body is still aching from yesterday's workout. I'll resume it tomorrow though! :D I just want to watch movies online today and check out my favorite TV shows. It's time for me to relax and enjoy my rest day!

I want to share a funny experience at the gym. I workout most of the time around 12noon until 3 o'clock in the afternoon. There are a few people during this time of the day. I like it when it's not crowded.

Mr. Excuses works out at the same time. He's not exactly overweight just chubby. A personal trainer assists him on his workout. Here's one of the situation I get to witness on their workout session:

After pulling the weights, Mr. Excuses stops.
Personal Trainer: It's not yet 20, Sir. You're missing 5 more counts.
Mr. Excuses: No, I counted 20.
Personal Trainer: No Sir, it's only 12. Don't keep lying to yourself.
Mr. Excuses: Gosh I'm tired. My muscles hurt!
Then Mr. Excuses continues the weights exercise and finally reached 20.
Mr. Excuses: I'm hungry....
Personal Trainer: (scratched his head) Sir, we're not yet done with half of today's session.

Whenever I hear them argue, I wanted to laugh but I don't want Mr. Excuses to get offended. Hahaha! Mr. Excuses and his Personal Trainer are some of the people who make me smile during my workout!

GLEE Casts Stripped

I got disappointed when GLEE's episode this week was all but replay. I was anticipating for another exciting episode and then when I turn my TV on, they aired the first episode! I love it still but I've seen it a lot of times already.

And then here comes another controversy about GLEE casts Lea Michelle and Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith posing provocatively for GQ Mag November 2010 cover. I get it. They're really not real teenagers who plays the wholesome role for GLEE but it just disappointed a lot of GLEE fans. Parents would rather want them to be role models for the kids.

Well for me, I really am not surprised with the photos. They're all adults, they just have to be careful with their decisions since they're public personalities. All I care about is the GLEE episode! LOL! I hope they're going to make it up next week! :D

Unplanned Day Of Fun! :D

My day didn't go as planned! :D

First, I was supposed to wake up early but I didn't. Instead, I got myself plenty of sleep and woke up late!

Second, my friend Judith and I were supposed to watch a local comedy movie "Petrang Kabayo" which is starred by a famous comedian - Vice Ganda. Then again, we weren't able to. I have to finish my online assignments and have to wash my remaining laundry.

Third, I wasn't able to go to the gym! Sigh! I haven't burned some calories today...

But then, I had fun! Wanna know why? Because I spent a bonding moment with my friend, Lowela! It's pay day today. It's always a date whenever Lowela is around during pay day! :D

After we were done buying our groceries, we went for a stroll at the Ayala Malls and ended up taking pictures of ourselves! I enjoyed it so much that I decided to put my workout aside. It was like working out anyway because we got a bit sweaty during the stroll and the picture-taking! :D

A smile...

A pose...

A timid smile...

A relaxing view...

And another view...

And a friend! :D

Made my day worthwhile! :D

An Article About Marriage...

My cousin Michelle is getting married this December to his long time boyfriend, Jon. I'm happy for them and I'm really excited about their upcoming wedding. :D

Michelle posted this article on Facebook and I can't help myself but re-post it here on my blog. This could serve as a guideline to those who are married or in a relationship. Single people like myself can learn from this article too.


During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?" I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?" In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"

Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.

Here's the answer. EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse/partner. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies (unconventional behavior/habit) .

Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love... Because it's happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria (excitement) of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?" And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when marriages or relationship breakdown. People blame their spouse/partner for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage/relationship for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, excessive TV, or abusive substances.

But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it. I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could.

And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this):


SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage/relationship work. Sure true love can only happen after you've fallen out of love. When you begin choosing to love, even if you don't feel like doing it ---- that's true love. And that's the foundation of a lasting and strong marriage.

Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.

Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable. .. you can "make"love.

Love is indeed a "decision".. . Not just a feeling. You'll not just go away with your relationship just because the feeling is gone. In the Bible, love is a command. You make it happen.

Remember this always:

"God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go." - Ruth Beltran

It's inspiring, isn't it? Keep that love burning to couples who are married or in a relationship. Love is just around somewhere for single people like me. And I'm gonna make that "LOVE" happen when I finally meet him! :D

Thanks Te Michelle for this nice article!
