I wanted to write a New Year resolution entry..but I was too lazy (and bloated) to start on it. I thought heck it lah. Action better than having it in black and white. So I finally broke in my new pair of Asics which I'd bought abt 2 months ago! Called hub as I was on the way home from work..

Me "You coming home late today?"
Him "Yeah, thinking of staying later. Lots of work to do. Will be back at abt 10pm!"
Me "Oh..I was thinking of jogging this evening?"
Him "Wah..okay, I'll be home by 7!"


Heh, he came home early so that we could jog together. I think he was amazed that I was the one suggesting it because he's been bugging me to run with him for the longest time but in vain. The last time I 'really' jogged was probably abt 20 years ago when I was still in school. Haven't really been exercising much cept for rollerblading but I hardly break into a sweat with that. I used to be able to run pretty well..was a school long distance runner. Took it really easy and ran a mere 2km which was the longest distance I'd ever run in the past 2 decades. 2km is chicken feet for most pple but it sure wasn't an easy feat for me..was panting like crazy after the run. But it was a good start and man, I'm aching all over now. Think I'll try to see if I can do it at least 2 to 3 times a week..Am amazed at how some of you guys are able to run the marathon *kowtow*! My aim is to see if I'll be fit enough to join some of those runs that SPH supports (eg. Bull Run, Standard Chart). Hmm, just wondering..is it better to run before a meal or about 2 hours after it?

So I guess it's pretty obvious what one of my resolution for the new year is..not exactly to lose weight [ though I wouldn't mind losing another 3kg so that I can get back to my pre-pregnancy weight]. What I do resolve to do is to have a more healthy lifestyle which should include exercising more frequently and hopefully, get more toned. I'm super flabby man.. I guess I could also try cutting back on my coke [the drink, not drug] intake ..& cigs too..I'll try lah, no promise :P

Have been reflecting quite a bit on many things - health, finances, religion. Am thinking that I should be taking better care of myself since I'm not young anymore. Gonna be 40 in 2 years time..damn scary man! I may look youthful *coff* but I certainly don't feel it..
Lotsa pics since I've not blogged for quite a while..
These were taken at Christmas eve at my place =)




The whole family including Nenita went for a short cruise to KL during the pre- New Year break..
Our first time on a cruise actually.

Jia you to your 2007 resolutions. Bet if you dun smoke, you will even look younger! ;)

We had gone on Star Virgo cruise in Sep too! Where did you stop over? I think grandparents and kids will enjoy it more.

yeah, yunhuei kinda said the same thing..that i look young for my age even though i smoke..so imagine if i don't..i'll probably look 16! hah..if only *grin*

Stopped over at KL..we went to Sunway Lagoon...we only had 2 hours there..enough for Aidan to enjoy the waterplay area =) Yeah, old folks and kiddos will probably enjoy it more..I had a relaxing time so it wasnt too bad for me too.

Yes you should! Take good care of yourself more cos the family needs you. One thing i must say is, you certainly don't look like your age. Alot younger, i say!

yeah..i admit, i do fear growing old and being ill. I wanna be ard long enough to see my boy grow up, graduate, get married, have kids..It's scary at times, thinking abt the future but oh well, just gotta live life to the fullest!

If I can look as good as you at 38 I will have no complaints! Aidan really looks like his dad these days.

i know im fortunate that i look younger than my actual age but i think it's because i'm quite small-sized. but i do feel my age..i get body aches and am so reliant on massages to ease the pain.

yup..i think so too. he's growing to look so much like his dad!

Running 2km after 20 years of no exercising is like damm good lor!!!!!! Wah lau eh. Better than me. I think I'll stop at 1km. Heehee.
angeliatay
Jan. 5th, 2007 11:31 am (UTC)
i thought i would stop at 1km and start walking but strangely, i felt more energetic after i passed the 1km mark..Now the difficult part..to make it a habit & jog more often..

actually, you gotta run ard in ur line of job so it builds up ur stamina right? When i first started work, i lost so much weight because of my constant running abt..

You sure don't look like something who's going to hit 40 in 2 years time! That actually makes you *really* cool in my eyes. You're a cool blogging mummy!

Good luck on the resolutions!

Hey Angie! Happy 2007 to you and family!

The thing about exercise is that it's damn difficult to start. But once you get the hang of it...it actually feels good and starts being addictive.

I did some jogging before going on my Myanmar trip in Oct 06. But till now...haven't found the motivation to start again. :P

Happy New Year Diana! :)

yeah, am hoping that i can get into the swing of things and start exercising regularly..The good thing is that the hub has started to exercise too and we can do it together...at least i have someone to hang on to if i collapse :P

Waaaaaaaah. Not bad, run 2km! I am so lazy to run, when I do treadmill it's like run-walk-jog-run-run-walk-DIE. But now that I go to the gym regularly, even the moderate exercise I do has made a HUGE difference! Do highly recommend it :D

i gotta admit, you inspired me a li'. I was thinking..fwah, even weichi has started exercising (and you're looking good). I must do something abt it!

was glad that i didn't stop at all during the run..it only felt bad after i was done..probably could have gone on for another 1km but i didn't wanna overdo it. I tried gymming before but didn't really like it esp the threadmill.

hey me too! thinking of running. I plan to run during lunch cos that's the only time I have. But first I need to get a running shoe. I wonder when I will get one...
We used to think cruise is a boring trip cos you are trapped in a ship but now with kids I thot it will be fun but then now I find that it's quite expensive.
Ya, I also support you to stop smoking! Jia you!
Yeah, like the rest said you doesn't look like your age!

you have a gym at ur office? if so, then that's not a bad idea. some of my colleagues have been running during lunch too..i may consider joining them..i'd actually used the 'no running shoes' excuse so that i need not join my hub in exercising but one trip to queensway shopping centre solved that problem :P

it's not too bad on a cruise ship actually..esp when there's a stopover. There's lotsa activities onboard the ship, esp for kids. sign up ur kids in the starkids club..ur kids can then travel free for a cruise (limited to one cruise per year). So you just need to pay for adult fare & you can all share one cabin. The cabin can be quite small but you'll probably end up using it only when you'll sleeping so it's not really an issue...

You look incredible for your age lor! No one would guess you're a mother of one :)

I need to get back to exercise too! Past two months have been terrible.. I was always travelling, busy/tired, or sick.
