Body Balance

Grrr.. silly me. I SOOOO wanted to attend the Body Balance** class at the gym this morning (and tayang my new and flashy work out outfit.. heheh) but after waking up early and all the rush to send my 2 half-asleep girls to the nursery, I realised that I forgot to bring my FF card. Ni lah jadinya kalau tukar-tukar handbag nih! Geram betul! I know I can still go in, only need to fill in the form, but I was already running late so I decided to abort the idea and go straight to the office.

I started going to the BB class when I got pregnant earlier this year and I enjoyed it very much. Even if I had a tough week at work (tau la kan, nak melayan2 kerenah orang ni mmg buat I stress), I would still make it a point to wake up early on Saturday and attend the class. I think it helped me a lot in coping with the backaches and cramps during pregnancy. A couple of weeks before I delivered Baby Maira, I stopped going because I became huge and too heavy to move.

Now, after 4 months ++ of not attending the class, I have recently started going back. I feel refreshed, energised and, best of all, my body doesn't ache that much anymore (I have backache). I also attend yoga classes at the gym and am amazed with the flexibility of some of the participants. Mak oii, boleh lipat-lipat badan relaks aje...Tua and tembam pun boleh lipat badan. I yg ehem... ehem.. *muda* ni pun cannot. Now I realise that my body is so unflexible. Can't even touch my toes with the tip of my fingers without bending my knees. My mom says this means there's something wrong with my pinggang... ye ke?

I wonder...when la can I do this?



And this?


The instructor even tried to help lift my back. But, ergh, still cannot. Nak terjatuh-jatuh I. Not that I'm heavy, I am just keras! But although I find some, or ermmmm..most, of the positions quite difficult, I insist on going to the classes. I nak jugak to finally be able to lipat-lipat my badan. Also, I nak jugak reach my main aim that is to be able to fit in my work pants in time for my new job and have the bod of one of my fav instructors.. hehe... no kidding, the lady has 2 kids and her body is very well-toned, kulit pun cantik. I have 23 days to work out so all the best to me!

**BODYBALANCE™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm.
