Very low carb cheesecake

Hi everyone,

I have noticed the way I was eating these 2-3 weeks,

3-4 days low carb, 1-2 high carb (taking this chance to boost my breastmilk)
1 day low carb, 1 day moderate carb (boost milk day), back to low carb, back to moderate carb and so on.

I think this is the right way for me, for the moment, because Kaori needs her milk, and I must make sure the supply is maintained. I am also experiencing some weight loss, and back to my prepregnancy weight, although this weight fluctuates a little, depends my breastmilk 'stock' in my body, haha.

Last week I stumbled upon a low carb cheesecake recipe, and tried it, and it was surprisingly yummy, even my husband agrees. Last night I made a second batch, because I love it :) Plus the recipe is so easy.

Here's the recipe:

200g cream cheese
113g butter
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup sweetener (stevia,splenda,or whatever you have)
2 scoops protein powder (around 60g)

Mix it all up, and bake 180C, 25-30mins.


Note: Fridge it overnight, it tastes better the next day!

starting #bodyafterbaby


Sorry I have abandoned my blog. Was busy getting back on my research and studies, and of course, my darling Kaori. This is a short update for my readers if any, that I am on day 4 of my #bodyafterbaby series. I don't know why I started in the middle of the month, but basically I don't want to fall into the tomorrow syndrome, I'll diet tomorrow, I'll exercise tomorrow et cetera et cetera, so I started last Sunday, just by 90% eliminating my candies. hehe. I gained 23kgs during my pregnancy, and I have lost 18kgs in these 3 months, but in these 4 days I have lost 2.2kgs, so that means I have another 3kgs to go for the prepregnancy weight. My short goal is to get to the prepregnancy weight just in time for new year, and then I will continue to tighten up what's flabby. Obviously even if I reached my prepregnancy weight, my body will never look the same, but the bright side is, if I lose more weight or inches after that, I will be lighter than before I was pregnant!

So here's to #bodyafterbaby. Stay tuned! :)

A present for Ikue

I know I cannot thank her enough for everything she had done for me, from the first day I arrived in JAIST, until now. But my labor days were the ones that took this friendship to another level so I have always thought of this present for her, our very own Baju Kurung, as I know it will look very nice on her. She was so excited to receive it, and we told her to put it on immediately. When I passed her the shawl she told me - I want to wear like you wear it. So I wrapped it around her head.

Macam mualaf ok! :)

very pretty!

BFFs haha, this kid whipped out her own tudung when she sees people wearing tudung.

my best team, final picture during my last appointment with Tomokage sensei (1 month checkup)

Thank you Ikue! Love you to bits. ^_^
