So recently I’ve been getting a question whether I’m getting taller. You see, as far as I know, once puberty ends you can’t get taller. And heck, I’m 100% sure I am not on puberty period. Hahaha.
Anyway, I never realized it myself I feel like I’m just like before you know. Same old 154/155cm short kind of girl. I also thought that maybe people say that because they haven’t met me for a while like 1 year or so, maybe? But then, even my close friends whom I meet regularly also said the same thing.
Then I read that exercise can makes you taller or looks taller at least. I’m pretty sure it’s related with my posture so probably I used to kind of hunching my back and now I don’t. The way I stand and walk are different now hence my posture is better than before. So I look taller now. I’m still not sure about the getting taller part as I haven’t measured my height. Though I’m pretty sure it is still the same old number.
I also read that some types of exercise will make you look leaner by building those lean muscle. That way you will also look taller.
So previously I posted a post that I am going to participate in 5k run. But then, one day before the event, I got a really high fever I even talked in my sleep. So I decided not to force myself and just focused on recovery. Weirdly enough, I went to the doctor twice and both of them said that I was fine. However, on the third day, I started to have spasms and the high fever was still there.
My parents then took me to another hospital (so this is my 3rd doctor hahah). Apparently I got typhoid fever, dengue fever and lack of calcium though I drink milk everyday. The doctor told me that it’s because I drank coffee as well. I can’t deny it, I drink way too much coffee hehe
I was really bumped because I trained (not that hard, but I still did) for this event. But again, my health is my number 1 priority and knowing when to stop and not forcing myself are the lessons that I learnt from this. I don’t ever want to be hospitalized anymore… those needles and everything… just, no…
So you guys, it’s okay to stop and to take a rest for a moment. It’s better to do it rather than forcing yourself because it’ll jeopardize your health. At least that’s what I learnt from this!
