New Year shout out
Dear all, I am not sure what exactly has been lingering my attention that I have not been a good blogger the past 3 months but I hope it is not too late for belated New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai shout out to everybody ! 2015 is speeding by like nobody’s business any slowmo will be left behind. So, let’s buck up the pace and work (and play) for the best year of our lives this year regardless of the turbulence(s) which we have or will go through.
Pretty much focused on family life nowadays and grooming a 2 year old become a good and respectful human being. And of course, other life responsibilities. Somehow lagging on the sports and races front, I still somehow manage quick lunchtime workouts in the comfort of the gym in my office. 30-40 mins per session is all it takes for me to burn some quality calories.
Balance is the word
There are many races out and about which I see people sharing and posting on Facebook and other social media platform, so 2 thumbs up to all who are taking part in these healthy activities. I am slowing down competitively at the moment as I have other ‘competition’ to run ! Yes, being a mom, wife, full-time office job — is more than enough that I can ask these days. It is tiring (now that I know) and I really respect those moms out there who hold both a full-time job at work, and as a mother to their children. And thanks to their hubbies to in understanding and supporting their 21st century wives.
Still, nothing has stopped me hitting the outdoors sometimes with my little one. I took her to Taman Negara where we went on the canopy walk and a very adventurous hike up Bukit Terasek and also through the Kuala Tahan river to visit an Orang Asli settlement. And since FRIM is not too far off, this has been a regular weekend stop for me, my daughter and a couple of friends. Do-able.
What’s next ?
Next up, my company is organising a 10km run this Sunday. I have not ran a 10km for (…cricket sound…)..So, all the best to me and I will just put my best Brooks shoe forward and complete the course running, walking or crawling of need me. Oh by the way, I am selling of my Scotts Contessa mountain bike. Anybody interested, please contact me by hitting the ‘Contact’ link you see above this post. Meantime please be patient until I have the photo of this bike up in my next post.
Till then folks !
