So not even one entry for April? I must've been pretty occupied, or just plain lazy. But here is May, and let's start all over again!
I have a few things to look forward to and some of them I have embarked upon just recently. To share with you briefly:
1. My own weight-watching project - mainly to drop the post-baby weight after been delaying for a year plus now. You see, Carissa is now 1 year 4+ months. But between becoming a new mom and getting back to work, I was only giving myself a break and trying not to take it too hard on myself. But now that my little girl can run and I can run along with her, it's only appropriate to kick-start this mini-regime now. Only been at it for 4 days now including today and already my body is feeling the change. It's so good to run and sweat I have forgotten how that felt like. All I need to remember right now is believing that my system will work, and follow it through diligently.
2. Finally had the courage to change my skincare product. Been a week now on Hada Labo brand (I know I know, I'm so outdated...) and I must say, it's pretty promising. Not to complain on my previous brands much, but I like how easily my facial skin absorbs this one and it doesn't leave any greasy or 'packed' feeling, especially since I'm so lazy to be doing so much on my face on a regular morning of a normal working day. Currently on 3 items for now - cleanser, hydrating lotion and moisturizer gel - cukuplah I figure.
3. Cutting down on my caffeine intake. Such irony from Coffee Girl, right? Well, actually not cutting them off altogether, just the amount and type of consumption. These days, I'm on board the black coffee only - hot and sugarless at its best. So in a way, slowly eliminating my sugar intake as well. I had done that before and it was rewarding, but then I got derailed when I was pregnant because it seemed that all I wanted to drink was sugary stuff. Time to continue the habit!
4. After the busy April, anti-climax May, I just can't wait for June! Last December, we went to Krabi, Thailand -- our first outing away from home as a family. Then, Carissa just turned one and she was still practically an infant - carrying her was partly how I got my buffed up right arm hahaha (not muscle ok). But now that she can walk, a holiday with a tag-along tot will be so much fun and adventurous. Need to be fully fit to run after her here and there. Here's a trip from last year at the Crab Monument in Krabi... =)
The other new stuffs, let's leave them for now. Happy weekends everybody! And for my compatriots in Sarawak, Happy Voting Day!
