It’s incredible how supportive my friends and acquaintances are. Once they found out that I am doing this, messages of support and encouragement came pouring in. I’m very grateful to all of you and I appreciate your kind words.
Some friends aren’t quite sure what this is about. I don’t blame you, since I only posted the link to vote on my Facebook without much introduction. In a nutshell, I’m undergoing treatments/ sessions at Marie France Bodyline (MFB). This is a 30 days challenge with 3 other bloggers doing the same thing. There’s a Facebook contest on a voting basis, where the blogger with the most number of votes wins a 3D2N trip to Bali. If you’d like to vote for me, the link is here. Arigatou.
(But only vote for me if you think that I’m deserving. It’s not a popularity contest :) )
If I do win the grand prize, that would be friggin’ awesome because I love Bali (even more so if it costs nothing). If I don’t, well I’ve had all those fabulous MFB treatments for free. I’m quite enjoying them – so far it has been a spa-like experience.
Someone asked if I have to write all nice things about MFB. Nope, my obligation is only to blog about my experiences, good or bad. The only bad thing that I’ve experienced so far is the lack of parking availability at the MBF Uptown area. Then I got smart and pushed my appointments to an hour later and it ceased to be a problem.
Anyway let’s get back to summarising my 1st week of sessions. Caron, my MFB consultant decided to focus on my arms and tummy area (because if they get any bigger, they’d explode in your face). I went through a couple of wraps and massages. Damn shiok right? Told you it’s like a spa. But the massages can get a bit painful lah, ‘cos they are deep tissue massages. Don’t be fooled by the small size masseurs – they have fingers like iron.
As for the wraps, well here’s a photo of how I looked being wrapped.
Why was I grinning? ‘Cos I didn’t want to look sad. Why did I have the thumbs up? ‘Cos I had limited movement options from the wrap. Why wrap my legs only? Actually they go through the whole body, but I’ve my family honour to consider before posting such a photo of my wrapped body sans robe. Oh and the sanctity of your eyes too.
The bandages that made me look like a mummy were actually soaked in some sort of ingredient to aid the slimming process, of course. Takes a bit of getting used to, as the rolls of towels were unwrapped, you could see the steam coming out. The therapist then rolls cling wrap all over to keep the towels in place. Then I’m free to do whatever I want for 25 minutes before they come off. I usually get a paraffin wax treatment for my hands, drink ginger tea and read Her World.
After the 1st week, I do feel that my tummy is slightly smaller. You know lah, when you wear your pants or something and they don’t feel as tight. I doubt it’s water loss because I’ve been drinking water like crazy. Perhaps it’s combined with my attempt to eat better + one Bootcamp session. Ok, 1/2 Bootcamp session ‘cos I nearly K.O.ed so I did only 30 mins. I know I’ve to workout more though.
Also, check out this tuna wrap that I made for dinner. Tuna in olive oil + chopped onion + chopped steamed carrot + mustard + salt + black pepper wrapped in this expensive rice wrap thingy I found in Village Grocer. 8 pieces for RM12+, taste wise is so-so. Next time I buy pita pocket bread better.
OK that’s all for now. If you want to check out Marie France’s specials, they’re currently having an on-line promotion: RM58 for a tummy reduction therapy + RM10 Coffee Bean voucher. *Link*
