“It ain’t over till the fat lady sings…”

I am a woman with boobs and a butt.

I am also a Mom who gave birth to 2 kiddos.

Now that breastfeeding and chasing after toddlers have stopped, I find that I have:

a) a pooch again
b) love handles and
c) jiggly thighs!!!

Well…this afternoon, I took a long, hard look at my wardrobe.

Just a note to myself (and you, if you’re in the same boat), no matter how beautiful the fabric is and no matter how good it looks on the mannequin or model, DO NOT buy any of these:

  1. Peasant blouses with pleats around the chest
  2. Pirate tops unless there’s a cinched waist and it skim the hips
  3. Figure-hugging dresses (e.g. bodycon dresses ) are also no-no until you’re as slim, flat and tall as Gwyneth Paltrow or you are curvy like Kim Kardashian)

I Want to Ride my Bicycle

Our modern, hectic lifestyles will eventually kill us if we don’t make a lifestyle change.


I have been blogging regularly about any exercise that we manage to sneak in because one of my 2016 resolutions is to exercise at least TWICE a week.

Even if I am super busy with work, kids and etc, I will still try to fit in a home workout routine.

I find that when I am in a better mood when I’ve had even a few yoga stretches either early in the morning or late at night before I sleep.

Besides running around an open field, riding a mountain bike is one of my favourite exercises.

Since I’m usually with the kids while the Hubs is stuck late in the office, I’ve not had a chance to cycle anywhere. The few times I’ve gone on a bike in a relatively traffic-free area, #1 cycles with me. #2 rides on the pillion but she finds it bumpy!

Now that both kids can cycle (kudos to the girl!!!), we are hoping to upgrade #1 onto our bike but we’ll need to wait for #2 to outgrow her kiddy bike and take over her big brother’s bike. Then I can get a mountain bike! 🙂
