A Healthier Lifestyle + A New Blog

yoga, women health, health, simple pleasures, blogging

I did mention I shall be aiming to live a healthier, fitter life {yet again} this year. It has been a perennial goal, really, but am gearing towards getting some visible results this year. For starters, I will be cutting down my meat consumption and shall be going back to my pseudo-vegetarianism {if there is such a thing} way of life. I did it for more than 4 years before so I can see no reason why I cannot do it now.

Another thing that I would be doing more of this year is my yoga class. And as proof of my newly-reignited love affair, I even put up a new blog to chronicle my journey in the mat, along with all things yoga and health related. Yoga is my hands-down weapon of choice. For starters, it does not require complicated and expensive equipment, like Polar RCX 5 or treadmill. No need to buy expensive trainers as I do it barefoot in my most comfortable pregnancy clothes! 🙂  Also, it not only helps you strengthen your core through stretching and calms the mind through meditation and relaxation, but also encourages you to be more attuned to your spirituality. It even inspires you to start a healthier lifestyle, which for a mum like me is really such a must!

my inspiration to live a healthier life…

I want to be healthier so that I can be around much longer for my little man. I want to have a stronger body so that I can wrestle, run and play along with him. I want for us to make the most of our time together. It was, after all, in this little bundle of joy that I have found my life purpose and I would love to devout my life serving that purpose.

Oh well, I have not updated my new blog much. I have only hit the mat once this month, plus other things get in the way. But, I will make sure to post about my Yoga experience there real soon. I hope you can pay my new baby, mum does yoga, a visit! 😉

my pink yoga mat

pink stuff, yoga, simple pleasures

Back in the days, my yoga mat is one of my most prized possession {I know, am such a cheapskate, I nearly cannot afford all the other expensive stuff anyway! :)}, mainly because it represents a whole lot of things that meant so much too me – my thriving yoga practice {I am purely self-thought, educating myself with books, dvds + yoga episodes featuring Richard Yee on Oprah } + my journey towards being one in body, thoughts + spirit!

It has been ages since I stepped into my yoga mat to carry on with my practice. I reckon I am not as agile and flexible as I once been. But I am so rearing to practice on my poses again. I remember it was my New Year’s goal to get back to Yoga, but, alas, I nearly had the time + the energy to do just that. I’ve been busy with my childminding duties + all.

Nowadays, my pink yoga mat {which was given by my teammate, Meg, in one of our team’s Christmas party exchange gifts} serves a whole new different purpose – a play mat for my son. I’d roll it out int he balcony so Jared + his band of stuff toys can have something to sit on. I guess, the little man prefer it better than his other playmats.

Sharing this thru Pink Fridays 🙂
