Last week, I had the privilege of being invited to a local bloggers’ event. The invitation came from the lovely Ms. Betchie of Mommy QueenElizabeth, the details of which could be found on the photo above. I haven’t updated my blog in a while, but I figured it could use the additional content from the happenings at the event; that, and I wanted to meet other local bloggers as well. So I gratefully accepted her invitation.
Sometime last week, I saw this post about intermittent fasting (IF) when a friend posted it on our group chat:
⏰Intermittent Fasting isn’t really a diet but more of an eating strategy. By restricting the…
Now, to start off, I recently lost some weight starting when I had braces, and then got sick on and off for about a month last year. From my heaviest weight of ~54 kg, I went down to around 46-47 kg at the lightest. Currently, I’ve gained a little bit and now weigh around 47-48 kg. I plan to stabilize and keep my weight that way.
I have not posted here for the longest time about bullet journaling, despite the fact that I still am doing that up to now. Amazing, really. I have never really stuck with any sort of planner for this long–almost the whole year now, just whoa! I guess I can finally say I’ve found planner peace?
Anyway, the thing is I’m happily planning to continue with this system until the next year (which is just a few short weeks away!). And, to level up a bit, I will no longer be using a pre-printed planner, but a nice new dotted notebook from Victoria’s Journals! Excited person that I am, I have already started doing some of the pages. One such page I just finished and would like to share is this Fuzzy Logic Mood Tracker:
So after more than a decade of solely using contact lenses, I decided to take a [sort of] risk and go back to using old school specs. There are a number of reasons why I preferred using contacts to glasses, one of which is because my eyes are a bit photosensitive so I have to wear sunglasses when going out lest I trigger a migraine attack–something which I cannot do if I’m wearing eyeglasses. And not wearing corrective lenses just for the sake of using sunglasses would render me severely visually impaired–my eyesight is just that bad.
Too chicken to do a selfie. Solution: pose with my daughter!

Things finally clicked into place and so I finally, excitedly, registered for the event, along with my good friend Bonz. I opted to go for the Rockstar race kit because I wanted the singlet and towel. And because yeah, I am so gonna rock this run! 😀
But instead of pushing myself hard and going for the 10k run, I decided to be sensible and just do 5k since I’ll be driving us both home after. So wouldn’t want to drive when I’m about to crash from exhaustion. Safety first, right? 😉
So yeah, I guess this means 5k runs are getting easier for my body to take. Progress. Hell yeah. \m/_
I started joining fun runs at the ripe age of 29 and my first event was a mere 3k non-competitive run. And here is my daughter, all of 4 years and 8 months, already finished with her first fun run last Saturday–and a 5k run at that. And the icing on cake would have to be her being awarded as the event’s Youngest Runner! #proudMommy moment right there. 😀
I’d like to believe that by starting her young on sports, she’d grow up better, a more well-rounded person. After all, sports do not enhance only the physical, but the mental and emotional as well. And hopefully, instill in her some much-needed discipline as well.
No medal or Finisher’s shirt, only the feeling of pride and accomplishment at having finished at all despite the odds (first 10k run, no practice, no breakfast, only a couple hours of sleep). Am I doing this again? Yes. But not that soon. Gimme a month or two more to recuperate and I’d make this sacrifice again. ????
