Exercise

As a human being, I know the importance of exercise. As a full time working mum, I know it is nearly impossible. I said ‘nearly’ cos if I was to be really disciplined, I would have no problem contributing 1 hour of my 24 hours to an exercise session, even a short walk.

But in reality, I work 8 hours a day. I then get home and start dinner, then laundry and then help the boys with their homework. By the time I finish all that, I would just want to sit in front of a tv and just chill. If I am lucky, with a glass of red wine. Or two. Even right now, I am writing this in the parking lot outside my kids’school. Just dropped them off.

Anyway, I have always had issues with my weight. I mean I am not overweight but I feel like I am on the heavy side. As I grow wiser (ehem!), I am more concerned with my health rather than my weight. .. I have high BP and exercising can help. But then again….It seems that exercising is overrated. I mean, you do what you can to keep healthy, right? Not that it is mandatory!

Nowadays, I do whatever I can. I have learnt to accept my body. For a mom of three boys, I think I look fabulous. Yup, I have some spare fat around my waist but what’s important is I can run with my boys and have fun with them without being out of breath! And I want to be like that until I am like 70 or 80, if I live up to that age.

So basically what I am saying is, though it may not be easy, accept yourself, with or without fats. What’s important is you are healthy enough to enjoy life with your loved ones. So until next time, accept and respect yourself and live life to the fullest.

God bless!

First timer…

I have been wanting to get into the blogging world for so long now.  Ever since the birth of my youngest boy, 8 years ago! Yup, what put me on hold? Well, basically the fact that I have my hands loaded with daily stuff. For instance work, kids, house etc..yea..yea.I know excuses, excuses.  And then there is the fact that when I asked one of my Tech friends who has several blogs, the reply was: You are better off writing a book/novel.  So, of course, I followed the advice and best part? Never got to write it!

So here I am 8 years later, hands full – three boys, a full-time job and a PhD thesis on the way, when would be the better time to start blogging, right? But, here is the thing! I am naturally an introvert. I have a lot of things to say in my mind but I keep them all to myself. I am not the kind of person who would voice out what I think. I always prefer to let it be. Unlike my husband who is such an extrovert! I would gladly hide in a corner until the party ends while my husband would be the life of the party!

I have always written personal journals when I was younger and sometimes, nowadays when I have the time or when I feel like I need to get something off my chest.  Thanks to my fabulous English teacher, Mr. PW.  He encouraged us to write and that was when I knew I had the passion to write.

So again,  here I am folks.  Hope you’ll enjoy reading as much as I love writing,  but please be gentle.  I am a novice… 😉
