Don’t get me wrong. I love Summer, but Autumn is my favourite season of the year.
Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that I was born in this season, but I just love this transitional period into Winter.
But this year, I’m even more excited about the cooler weather for a few reasons.
I’m proud to say that I’ve been staying on track with regard to my fitness goals. Although my schedule has been rather busy this year to date, I’ve been managing to get in a workout a few times each week.
At the beginning of the year, I was contemplating whether or not I should get a personal trainer to help me with my workout routines, but time has just not allowed me to do so. Even though I haven’t been to the actual gym that often, I’ve been working out at home which has been a huge time saver for me.
And thanks to Aaptiv, who offered me a trial subscription, I’ve literally had the best of both worlds of being able to work out at home or even at the gym – with some professional guidance!
Thanks to the app I’ve been able to do various workouts with the help of various personal trainers on the audio app – with really awesome music too!
It’s the 3rd month of 2018 already – where has the time gone?
I haven’t shared a post in this series since last year, so it’s kind of overdue!
Each time I share an update in the series, I always look back at my last post and reflect on how things have changed since then. And it makes me happy to see how my kids have developed, but at the same time, it makes me sad to see how quickly they are growing up.
I mean, just look at this picture. How tall are these kids?
So what has been happening since the last update?
Self-care is so important to me. Without my physical and mental health, I’ll have nothing!
But sometimes it’s so hard to get the time to make time for myself… do you agree?
I recently ran a poll on Instagram and it wasn’t surprising to me that 80% of woman who answered, hardly ever gets to have “ME TIME”
I can relate at times, because besides 24 hours a day of Mommying, I have many busy work weeks, then there’s my blog I have to maintain, admin, trying to keep fit and an attempt at a social life!
But, how do I make room for everything?
I could easily cut back on the socializing and maybe even skip a meal to make some more time – it’s so easy to put self-care on the back burner. And sadly many times it often takes a wake-up call to notice what toll a busy lifestyle takes on my life.
As self-indulgent as it may sound, self-care is actually the most crucial thing for our physical and mental well-being.
