Want to win some paleo goodies?

I’m giving away¬†a loaf of paleo bread or a bag of paleo cookies to two people! Now is a great time for you to take part if you’ve always wanted to try¬†the bread or cookies but¬†are not sure if you’ll like it. Or if you’re a regular customer, you can get your next loaf for free!¬†This is the first contest I’m sponsoring so I’m very excited. The winner also gets a one clothing item¬†from local online yoga retailer¬†www.omgoing.com, which stocks amazing brands like Teeki and Liquidoactive.

It’s very easy to take part in this contest.

1. First, you need to have Instagram. Go download¬†the app¬†on your phone if you haven’t!¬†It’s fun and you can ‘follow’ people to see what they are up to!

2. Next take a photo of yourself wearing your gym wear outside of the studio. The idea is that we need not confine exercise clothes to the gym and that there are creative ways to make them look good for outside wear as well.

3. Post this photo with the hashtag #coloursplashsg and tag the four sponsors @paleorina @omgoing @yogaseeds and @trinityark. The other sponsors are also giving away goodies, including free yoga lessons.

3. This contest will run for two weeks from now until 23 July 2014. Winners will be announced on my Instagram wall.

Here are some sample photographs. Let’s create some colour splashes around Singapore!

“My thighs are huge. I can’t wear these white jeans.”

“I look like I’m three months pregnant. I need to go on a diet.”

“I’ve been so bad. I ate both lunch and dinner today. I need to run twice the distance this evening to burn off the calories.”

I’m no stranger to complaining about my body. My favourite target is my tummy and it drives me nuts as to how I can never wear cropped tops or a bandage dress because I store all my fats there. From a biological standpoint, being predisposed to storing fats around my waist has no detrimental effect on my health and I should be happy that I am healthy and relatively fit. But from an asthetics standpoint, I’m pissed that I can’t wear bandage dresses like Blake Lively.

So my “fat talk” typically revolves around how I need to lose weight on my tummy and feeling frustrated because it’s not really possible to spot reduce. Even at my thinnest in university, I still sported a small¬†paunch (You see, this is how my fat talk starts). Continue reading Stop this fat talk
