secret #1 ihiks!

assalamualaikum!


when i was 18 years old, 27 seemed so far. and this year, mashaAllah, i will turn 27 in december!!
rasa macam ohyamjee sangat!
*checks face for wrinkles*

truthfully, i never imagined to be a family person when i was younger. i hardly ever thought of weddings, children and even settling with a guy, coz i thought of being a traveller konon ala ian wright. heheheh!

things are so different now than what i had imagined. i have my own family unit! alhamdulillah =')
so if a person were to ask me about the 1 thing i care most, of course, it's my family =)


Nadrah's aqiqah months ago 


and i was naive to think that having a child would be easy peasy.
boy, oh boy.. was i naive!

it's a lot of work! not just physically, but mental and emotionally too!

i was so exhausted during the first few months after having nadrah and i wondered, "how did every mom handle this??? with babies, toddlers, household chores, cooking, hamagaahhhh!!"

and now.
mothers and mothers-to-be's..

the secret is HEALTH.
macam simple je kan?
like "pssshhh! i knowwww" right?
but please.

bila ada anak sume, memang penyakit malas melanda mendalami jiwa raga dan procrastinate.
reality is uglier than our expectation. hahaha!


anyways, i started doing light warm ups whenever i can and eating supplements regularly.
it did wonders!
not only my body starts feeling better, i can handle pressure better!
alhamdulillah =D

so i STRONGLY STRONGLY STRONGLU STRONGLA encourage you ladies to take good care of your health!
whether you're single, married, have kids, working, whatever, health is not something we should take for granted. this is a nikmat! a gift from Allah SWT!

jom ramai ramai cakap "Alhamdulillah!" =D
hehehehe!

dan kakak kakak adik adik sayang, bukan setakat exercise je ye, makan pun kena jaga. i've been training myself to cook with olive oil and eat more vegetables. eeegghhh.... sebab sayang family dan sayang kesihatan, maka ku paksakan diri menelan sayur. *turn on jamie oliver cooking shows*

if you're keen in joining runs (it's so common nowadays, means ramai suka healthy lifestyle!), Allianz Pacer ada buat gak! we are all welcomed to participate =D

if i ask you what's the one thing that matters to you, what would it be?

for me, it's health. because in order to be there for my family, to be able to do things i want, learn, to perform ibadah and travel, i need my health =)

Allianz wants to know too why your health matters to you!
share them with Allianz at their website HERE and the first 300 will get a free Allianz Pacer T shirt! remember to LIKE their Facebook Page too!
you could also share your pictures of the things that matter to you on Instagram and tag #matters2meMY or #matterstomeMY

simple kan?


here's something you should watch =D




hope this helps make you make the right decision to protect the things that matter to you =)

Bukan senang jadi mak. Dulu ingat senang je. Tapi tak cukup tidur, tak cukup makan, tak cukup masa nk masuk bilik air pun. Nak handle housechores, nak main dengan anak-anak. Tapi sementara je kot sebab bila dia da besar semua ni akan jadi kenangan sahaja.

True enough...as for me, since hitting the 3 series, my body gave that sign of 'aging' (owh no!). Too many things too cope. Family, health, career etc etc. So, I started taking supplements afterwards (as I can't cook healthy meal every single day and exercise 3 times a week - owh gosh this is embarrassing!)

Take care Maria and family!

assalamualaikum kak maria..fyi hari 2 lecture saya ada cakap if memasak jangan guna olive oil..olive oil bila dimasak akan menjadi lebih bahaya dari memasak menggunakan minyak kelapa sawit..oliveoil hanya boleh digunakan untuk way dressing salad..
