Someone suggested I draw a girl wearing a Hijab a few months ago so here it is! I’m not sure if it was anonymously sent or not, or if I replied already, so please let me know if it was you! I enjoyed making this. :)

I’ve started lifting about a month ago and it was AWESOME! Alhamdulillah!

How to lose an inch off your waist in Ramadan

1) During iftaar eat moderately
2) Brush teeth for Maghrib prayers
3) Put on your walking/running shoes and basically run or walk super fast to the masjid because you are afraid to be late for Ishaa’ (where I am, twilight hours (or rather HOUR) are very short and the masjid is a good 20 mins stroll- I try to make it there in 10)
4) Pray Ishaa’ ,Taraweeh and whatever extra prayers
5) Take a longer route home. Walk fast.
6) Arrive home. Get ready for bed. Don’t eat! You wouldn’t wanna waste your energy to brush your teeth again
7) Wake up for suhoor. I noticed that when I ate 5 dates with milk in the morning, I wouldn’t feel hungry till the evening. When I ate rice, I’m hungry by noon.
8) Drink lots and lots of water during the non fasting hours
9) And by Allah’s permission, you lose an inch off your waist by the second week of Ramadan.

Added the hiking boots to my ‘sports’ shoes collection.  And I’m still stuck wearing the same pair of crocs pumps everyday to work (and on some occasions the same cheapo heels). Oh my priorities.

Did the jog-run-sprint intervals.  Hit 94% on the uphill sprint. I nearly died!

Confession Confession

I haven’t posted anything on Tumblr for so long that I didn’t know the interface for new post changed.

Anywhooos… I feel like a complete shame.

Remember I was supposed to have this jam-packed January where I’ll be training for my 10K and while doing my  round 2 month 2 of Insanity? Well, that didn’t happen. I was so gungho for the first three days and after that I did not do my Insanity and I only ran sporadically during the week. I wasn’t prepared for my 10K run. So I DID NOT GO FOR THE TERRY FOX RUN :( 

And now, with a week of February gone, I’m picking up where I left off for Insanity. 

And I am so karat (rusty, in Malay). Throughout the video (of nearly an hour) I was complaining that the exercise is taking such a long time to end. (On normal circumstances, I won’t complain on the duration). Plus I haven’t been doing Insanity for so long that the DVD player’s ‘region-free capabilities’ has been disabled and I have to spend nearly 30 mins to look for the hack online.

Gotta pick up the pieces.. Gotta pick up the pieces…
