Mission accomplished!

Yay..!!! Managed to drag myself up onto the treadmill this morning. Wasn't easy, but hey, I did it and it feels great!! Chia yo!! Now to keep it up..

Started with a brisk walk today, since I've stopped for quite a while, and I didn't want to push it further since I've been on antibiotics and heavy doses of cough syrup.

I've been like a sleeping beauty this past 2 days, alternating between simple house chores and sleep marathon. Speaking of which, did anyone tell sleeping beauty that too much sleep is not entirely good for the body and mind? Going out into the country side and taking in fresh air will do her good. Uh... what was the reason why she sleep so much? I forgot..

Anyway, can I maintain a 3x p'wk treadmill session from now on, now that I will be working from home? Hmm... maybe I shld go back to my once a week yoga. It'll be good, to alternate between cardio work out and body stretching. Something to ponder over..

I am not going to take my cough syrup this afternoon, coz I refuse to allow my mind to wonder into dreamland without me realizing it, as what's been happening the past 2 days. But the heat is not really helping much..

zzzzzzzzzzz........... oh yes, where was I just now....? zzzz....zzz....zzzz............

My exercise starts tomorrow!

This February has been a hectic and a crazy month for me. In within a short span of 2-3 weeks, my life changed from one direction to one that is completely the opposite, and then to another that is so not in my plan. It totally threw me off balance, and the change in mindset, not once, but twice within such short period of time was totally exhausting for me.

Due to that, it kind of like disrupted my exercise regime in the morning for the whole month, not to mention the festive CNY season didn't exactly help either. I'm thankful though, that I didn't put on any extra weight despite piling on a bit more this year, and that I was able to fit into all my CNY clothes.. :-D

It's going to be an up hill climb, trying to get back into momentum, once it has stopped for quite sometime. My goal for tmrw, get up early and get on the treadmill. Can I do it? We will see...

Introducing Austin..!!

Austin, the new member of the family. Caught in the act, this time round. ST decided to put the 1/2 eaten banana in our front garden, in full view from the living room where he normally sits while watching TV.

Still a bit shy, so we had to use the Olympus 10x optical zoom to zoom in on him. Otherwise, no way we'd be able to have a shot of him.. :-D

We have a new member in the family...!!

We noticed lately, that we've been having a regular visitor to our kitchen. It's a squirrel. Since I'm not sure if it's a he or she, I'll use the universal term "he". He's been scurrying into the kitchen, rummaging thru our mini garbage basket on the wet kitchen top, and wondering off, right in front of Tabby, like as if they're good friends and that Tabby is standing by on guard to ensure the coast is clear for him to waltz in.

Since we have not seen either Timon or Tabby going after any squirrels, we reckon that the fella is safe from harm, and that we can safely say that we now officially have a third pet in the family. And we have decided to name him...Austin.

Austin is the name of a character from my fav cartoon show - The Backyardigans.. :-D

Under the weather

Been coughing till my chest is about to burst, and still it wants to cough. The phlegm in the throat is extremely irritating, and it's keeping me up all night.

I've coughed till my head feels so heavy and my throat feels so painful. Going to the doc to get some heavy doses of cough syrup and hope it will knock me out tonight. This w'end, more feasting, shiver....

Life in the modern world

One of the greatest maladies facing the modern world is too much action. Action, more action, and still more action punctuate the modern life from the cradle to the grave. Are all this ceaseless activities productive or do they actually just numbs us to the harsh reality of life?

We need to balance movement and stillness. Nature never hurries; neither should we.

Do you listen to the voice of nature? Do you listen to yourself? Have you talked to yourself today?

Glee Crazee...!!

Am so totally smitten by this musical comedy-drama. So different from the normal type. How different?

Glee is about being you, about being yourself. And that it's ok to be mis-fits.

Winds of change
