Passion Run.

Off I go running early in the morning.

Signed up for a 4km run (I know it's nothing much) but I began regretting it the moment my alarm clock rang at 6am in the morning. Who wakes up at 6am in the morning anyway... Thoughts crossed my mind: maybe if I pretended to oversleep, or maybe if it pours, maybe I can just go back to sleep...

Didn't work, so ended up waiting in line patiently with the hundreds of wannabe runners about a few hundred metres away from the starting line (cos the queue was that long), and went off.. to a staggering start as we tried to manoeuvre (I still can't spell this odd word) around mothers pushing prams, old couples taking a hike, some sightseeing ladies and some angsty youths.

Not a long run, but I started to feel the stress on my underworked heart and lungs and legs and then you begin to hear the yells. The very enthusiastic volunteers along the road yelling at the runners to go on, it's just 1km left, there's free yoghurt at the end of it all, come on, you can do it. The energy's infectious and the runners pick up their speed (or it could be the free yoghurt after all).

And... it's over.

Bikini Workout Part 2

Part 2 makes it sound like I'm actually working out.

But the actual sad news is that I don't have a resistance band so I guess I'm giving up. I've tried one of the exercise. But surely it wouldn't do if I only train one part of my body. I might actually end up looking pretty weird right.. So.. there goes :D

Experiment. Fail.

Blog Writing Mood

Yeah. I'm in a blog-writing mood.

I'm not sure why.
It's not to clock up the posts. I've only made 4 sad posts these years. My worst year thus far has been 2008 where I made only 13 posts. They are however really exciting posts. Because they have PICTURES. And they're beautiful. And they're happy. They make me smile.

That's what blogs are for right? To keep the happy moments?

Man.. I need to try harder.

Bikini-Ready Body

Somehow blogging stopped becoming a habit once I lost my own place.
I need a room of my own.

Well.. and obviously I'm thinking of Virginia Woolf. 

"Women, then, have not had a dog's chance of writing poetry. That is why I have laid so much stress on money and a room of one's own."
- Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own

Anyway, this is about my resolution (kind of like a this-month's resolution) - and a very prosaic and non-intellectual, possibly even anti-intellectual, type of resolution - and yes you are right, it is:-

TO have a bikini-ready body.

Inspired, well, not quite inspired, but just perhaps reminded of it by the SHAPE September Issue - how I received that magazine is yet another story. [Stop rambling!] It has a lovely 2-page sprawl of exercises I could do twice a week for two weeks and I'll have that amazing Bikini-Ready Body it flaunts on its cover page. 

I am going to start this coming week. 
And hopefully two weeks later, I'll remember to blog.
And hopefully, I would have good news. 

Cheers to my bikini-ready body - well, future bikini-ready body at any rate...
