I’m afraid we haven’t done much exercise over the pass week except carry Gareth around and play with Gavin. I did play imaginary trains with him where I was the engine carrying him around the house. Does that count?
Finding time to work out as a Mum is definitely very challenging. Last week I had mastitis and two sick boys. This week, I was sick. It was also Chinese New Year this week which usually means a lot of familial and social responsibilities. Nevertheless, we can begin next week anew with my own Chinese New Year resolutions.
One thing I learned during this Chinese New Year which I thought made a great tip as far as those desiring to lose weight are concerned is this:
- Stay away from people who make you feel bad about yourself.
Who are those people? Mine would be my husband’s second aunt. I believe the first thing she said to me when she saw me over CNY was: “Wow! You are fat! You’re so fat!”
Could she possibly have been any less blunt? Didn’t she notice the baby in my arms? Has she forgotten that I just pushed out a baby not that long ago?
Anyway, I think you know the kind of people I mean – anyone who has anything negative to say about you that is not at all constructive in any way. These are the people you should avoid like the plague.
