Bella having her haircut earlier today at Kool Kutz BV II.
She really needs a lot of distraction..
Acah jer, I only pantang until 44 days!! No day 45!
So, today I’m officially free!!
Guess what I did today?
Running on the treadmill :)
I have to do this.. I can’t be gaining 5 kg for every child I gave birth to!! Kalu anak 10, nak add lagi 50kg ke?? -.-Besides, fitness is definitely an issue. It was quite tiring during my second pregnancy as compared to the first one. I definitely have to work on that.
Dieting is not an option because I’m still breastfeeding. Tasha needs her nutrients. So, compromising her meal is a big N.O. I don’t believe in those commercial supplements that claims you can lose weight. Most probably you’re just losing water. Besides, again I’m breastfeeding, no funny drugs should go into my body. The only option that I have is exercise!! And liposuction!! ;) But I’m scared of any surgical procedure..
So, back to square one.. Exercise!! Dgn hati yg cekal (dan berat and malas!!) I forced myself to run today.. it has been a while since I last run.. Lucky I still remember what button to press on the treadmill :D
I run for 2.87km in 25minutes today!! Yay!
(Somehow I just couldn’t finish until 3km, already half dead by that time)
I cheated a bit. I didn’t run the whole 25minutes, I slowdown on running quite a few times.. or shall I call it “power walk” ;)
So, wish me luck mommies.
Who wants to be my trainer? But you must train with me ok!!
Now I know what “no time” means!!
It simply means N.O. T.I.M.E!!
When there was only Bella, it is quite easy to juggle things. I was still able to finish my work, house chores, having some me-time, shopping time, some readings..
But when I have an infant and a toddler at home, I just don’t have time!!
I’ve been trying to adjust Tasha’s bedtime so she knows to sleep mostly at night and be awake during daytime.
We managed to do that for Bella. How did we do that? We exposed B a lot to sunlight during daytime because it helps to regulate her sleep cycle.Bright light means awake, dark means sleep. And we woke her up every morning at 7am without fail to make sure she follows her sleep and milk routine cycle.
B is already sleeping throughout the night once she reached 3 weeks old.
But different with Tasha, maybe because she was born borderline premature at 36 weeks, maybe.. I’m not sure.. her sleeping pattern is still haywire.
Tasha needs her sleep so much so that she can grow bigger. Why? Because growth hormone is release in our body while we sleep!!
But when she wakes up fresh at night.. then she cries, she wakes Bella up too!!
And the cycle never ends!
What do a sleepy mommy do?
Breathe. And be a mommy. Continue breathing.
It is not easy to synchronize these two girls sleeping pattern. When one is awake, one is asleep. Or it’s the other way round.
My mom told me to get some sleep everytime my baby is sleeping. But they take turns to sleep!!
So, that’s my definition of N.O. T.I.M.E!!
Dear blog readers,
Bella now is able to balance herself one or two steps forward *proud mommy* It is such a joy to see her learn to walk.. She fell down many times but that’s okay. It’s part of the learning process. She’ll learn to get up and try again :)
That’s B with her ‘gu’.. Yeah, ball is ‘gu’.. Hahahha.. We are learning her language as well ;)
Then she’ll get up again..
Trying to balance herself.. (and NOT touching the grass!!)
Unfortunately the gravity wins!! She didn’t move at all while lying on the grass.. before started screaming!! Hehehe..
Yeah, we had fun!!
Bella was unwell for the past few days.. she had blocked nose and cough.. Not too serious, now she’s getting better.. Alhamdullillah..
During her unwell period, she slept with us because she keeps waking up in the middle of the night and we couldn’t cope with the amount of traveling from our room to her room (macam lar jauh sgt..) in the middle of the night.. So, we just let her sleep in our bed..
Unfortunately, up until now, she loves our bed so much. Haih… Every time we put her back in her baby cot, she wakes up and cries.
*insert mommy’s cry here*
We don’t know what to do… Hahaha.. this is like a new challenge for us to put her back to sleep in her bed..
Look how much she loves our bed.. sampai tertonggeng2 tido…
Wish us luck!!!
