GP 21 Days Fitness Challenge

Just a small effort towards a better and healthier lifestyle, so i decided to join this fitness challenge organized by another unit in my division. Not really to challenge myself or to reduce more weight, i just hope my cholesterol reading gets better, and the body fat % shows some reduction at the end of the program.

So 2 weeks had passed until it was launched. We had salsation, piloxing and tabata to date. Some were done after office hours, some during lunch hour. I noticed i need to take enough calories during lunch so that i can keep and sustain my energy level till the end of each exercise session. There was one day where i almost lost my breath and felt lack of o2 after the 1-hr piloxing session, lucky i didn't collapse haha.

Anyway, need to remember that for a balanced lifestyle it will always work at this ratio 80% eat: 20% exercise. To practice the 'eat clean' habit is easy, but to stay istiqamah like forever is the hardest, agree? I admit i fail at this part, for i cannot live without cakes and chocolates :p I can take wholemeal bread or Belvita biscuits for a week and forget about my usual nasi lemak dose, but to forgo cakes and chocolates is like to transform myself to a wholly different person altogether.

This is my body reading, for personal record.

Body weight: 51.1kg
% fat: 29.1
Visceral fat: 2
Muscle: 28.1
Body age: 32
kcal: 1147
BMI: 19.5

Body weight: 50.2kg (i think because i puasa the day before)
% fat: 28.8
Visceral fat: 2
Muscle: 28.2
Body age: 31
kcal: 1134
BMI: 19.1

 So the program will end next week, but we're going for a short holiday next week. Holiday means makan-makan and breaching your strict adherence to eating clean. Konfem takde harapan nak menang lah nih! :)

But again we also need to remember, you are what you choose to be, if you want to be happy, do what makes you happy.

Conversation with kids

#1. My eldest holler me late this evening.
He: Mama esok dtg tak?
Me: Ala taklah, kan baru je blk dr cuti. Nx wk boleh outing. Kenapa nk mama dtg..rindu ke?
He: Takdela..dtg ajar Maths ke mcm aritu. Td blaja theorem pitagoras.
Me: Emm idlan tanyala kengkawan lain yg terer tu, ada kn..tanya diorang yer. Nnt paham la tu...
Me: Ok mama! (sounds cool n relax as always)
* This has been circling my mind quite a number of times. Probably one of the cons of sending him to boarding school, i cant be there for him at all times. But on a positive note, he will learn to be more independent, responsible n survive on his own. Sedih. Full stop.

#2. After the younger two were done with their Maths revision tonight.
We talked about so many things, from syaitan to iblis yg refuse to obey to Nabi Adam, how iblis promised to sesatkan manusia and heret us to neraka, syafaat Rasulullah, how Allah destroyed kaum Luth and their belongings, few things that they read in their Science book but were actually already explained in Quran like bumi beredar mengelilingi matahari, bulan beredar keliling bumi, mlm dan siang, how Allah made gunung sebagai pasak bumi, sungai mengalir n suburkan tanaman, hujan turun dr awan utk suburkan bumi and finally tercerita pasal satu laut yg mama dh lupa nama dia tapi air dia ada 2 color yg slightly berbeza dan ada garisan pemisah antara keduanya. I googled n showed them the pic and they were both awed n blurted out "hebatnya Allah!" Haa kannn mmglah Allah hebat semua Dia dh explain dlm Quran dan ada jawapan. Esok bila dh besar bole baca tafsir..memcm korang jumpa nnt!
Firas: hishhh kalo firas citer kt kawan ni mesti derang x percaya.
Me: Kalau nk kasi derang percaya, firas kena quote surah apa ayat berapa lah 😅 Nah cuba igt nih 🙃

Things change, life goes on

Last night after Isya' hubby said...rasa sunyi plak rumah nih.

Firas said..rindulah abg idlan takde.

Asked Irfan..where's abg Idlan?
Then we helped him to answer...abg idlan pegi asraaamaaa.

So now when we repeat the same question to him..he will answer...aaa aaa maa!

Mama rindulah kt Idlan. Mlm td ok je lagi, tp bila solat pagi nih..aduhai sayu plak bila teringat.

2017 - Idlan, Form 1, time flies!

My last post was about his trial xm, and tomorrow he's going to a boarding school already, a completely different phase of life i must say! Cpt masa berlalu kan.

2016 was truly a blessed year for us the whole family. Though we didnt go for any overseas travel, Allah has bestowed us with so many great things i couldnt mentioned enough.

Idlan performed well in his upsr and psra exam, one of the best gifts he gave to us apart from being a very obedient and responsible 'abg sulung'. For this, i am very thankful to Allah for He chooses us to be the parents to this lil boy, and ofcoz to his other siblings.

Firas also ended his Year 2 in style, made way to the stage again together with Idlan. He recently told us he wanted to go to Oxford, i was like wowwww this guy knew the existence of Oxford U!!

Ammar had his kindy convo, and now in Year 1. He literally cried almost everyday n refused to enter into Kafa during the Dec's orientation that idlan n ustazah had to pull n carried him inside, but alhamdulillah no drama whatsoever on the 1st day of school last week. Lega mak!!

Irfan Faris my miracle baby is no longer a small baby. Alhamdulillah he grows well and healthy, and looks like he is completely recovered from laryngomalacia. His vocabs increases from mth to mth, i think i shouldnt worry much about his speech.

We ended 2016 with me n hubby went to perform our 1st umrah. All went well for us, and kids who were left here with nek umi and atok at Ampang for 12 days.

And finally on career side, i am now again undergo another round of job rotation, new unit new team bigger roles n responsibilities.

As i have always remind and tell myself, i was at my weakest point in 2015, but Allah has picked me up and blessed us with lots of good things in return after He tested us with Irfan's sickness. For that i must not forget Him, and must always put my faith in Him, in whatever undertakings.
I hope i can stay istiqomah in improving my relationship with Him, apart from always doing the best for my family n company.

Alhamdulillah terima kasih Ya Allah. Allahuakbar.
