Random Shots of November 2016

November has been a whirlwind month for me. So many things have been happening one after the other leaving me and the kids rather breathless.

Year end holidays are here and the kids and I are enjoying ourselves doing  activities which we normally reserve for the holidays.

I’ve been trying my best to eat clean.  It hasn’t been easy and I have been having several cheat days 😛 There are so many scary products in the market made of plastic.  Even products like rice and noodles can be made of plastic and untraceable using our naked eyes.

Before I had kids I never thought much about what I am eating nor was I overly concern with it’s nutritional value. However now I am more particular about what I put into my body.  I only want the best for myself and the kids and fill our bodies with the necessary nutrition.

After having kids I started looking more seriously at my own health and fitness. I admit that I am not very discipline in  doing regular exercise and had been always looking for an exercise accountability partner.

I’m more concern about keeping healthy so that I will be able to be fully present during their growing up years. As mentioned last month  started a new series .

I will make monthly post documenting my journey to a better me. This month’s learning will be shared in the next post.

How had the month of November been for you?

Sept Eats and reflecting on 2016

In a blink of the eye we are now in September and in a few months time it will be time  we will be preparing for Christmas and 2017.  It is time again to start another reflection on how the 3rd quarter of  2016 has been going for me.

I can say that since putting down in writing my amended goals for 2016 I have been deliberately more focus on my health goals.  I remove myself from situations whereby I would be  tempted by unhealthy food and make a bad choice which I may regret later.

Even though I focused on healthy eating more I did give myself allowance for treats like cake.

The cake which I could not refuse taking a bite from this month was Tiger girl’s birthday cake. This month she celebrated her 6th birthday and had a party with her friends.

I ordered this custom made Shopkins cake for her as she is crazy about this toy.  Doesn’t it look so adorable!!! Tiger girl was thrilled when she saw the cake and her eyes lit up like diamonds.
