Safa ParkPosted: 15 May 2013
I’ve always had weight issues. Growing up relatives would always comment on how “big” I looked and they don’t mean the big as in tall, they meant the other thing. So I try to control my husband when he calls our kids “TABA” (fatso). Yes kids are cuter when they are a bit heavy and I too sometimes slip up and call my baby “tabachinching“. That is why I am trying to show a good example and exercise more to show them how good it feels when you take proper care of yourself.
To do this, I TRY to walk around Safa Park during the weekdays, when I can. Safa Park is a park in the middle of the city. It has a jogging path that goes around for 3500M. I like walking there in the morning because it helps me discipline myself to finish the circuit and walk the 3.5KM. Unlike when I walk around our place, If I feel just a bit of discomfort the temptation to go home is there and most often than not, I always give in. It’s very close to Adrian’s school so after my school run I go straight there.
I always make sure Aden has eaten so that he will not distract me when I do my walk. Lots of people walk or jog there in the morning and most of them are fit and slim. I always tell myself, if I keep this up I may be one of them someday and that’s what keeps me going.
One year from now I’m going to write another SAFA PARK post and tell you if I did it or maybe write about the excuse I came up with why I couldn’t do it. I still can’t see any results but I’m happy about my efforts. I just hope I continue to have this attitude and not get frustrated (like I always do).
