Exercise – Steptember: Step Up to the Challenge!

Alright! It’s ONE MORE DAY to the Steptember Challenge! 10,000 steps a day, can I do it?

This is the first time I joined such challenge. I sure am a little excited! I seriously hope that I won’t get lazy and decide to quit it half way. WSSP, that’s our team’s name. And all these are done for Charity! So please donate and cheer me on!!

From Wednesday, 2 September I will be taking on the challenge of completing 10,000 steps a day, for the entire month of Steptember to raise vital funds for the Cerebral Palsy Singapore.

The average office worker only takes around 3,000 steps per day, so 10,000 steps a day is going to be quite the challenge.

But it’s for a very worthy cause.

Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. One in two people with cerebral palsy are in chronic pain due to the tightening of their muscles. Many will never be able to take a single step without assistance.

If you’re not sure where to start, a donation of $35 could support a child with one hour of physiotherapy.

You can donate to my fundraising page: (http://bit.ly/1JqomGm)

Any amount you contribute would make a huge difference to children and adults living with cerebral palsy and of course encourage me to complete my 10,000 steps per day!

Thank you so much!

P.S. You’ll receive an automated receipt as every donation over $10 is tax deductible.

7.05am – Was it a coincidence? Or was it some kind of telepathy? That little milo knows that I’m about to take a short nap and thus woke up so that he can has his milk fast? *sulk* There goes my 26 minutes of short nap before heading up to prepare for the day…

I’m still freaking tired, if that’s what you are wondering. My cough’s not getting any better but probably that’s because I never really control what I’m eating. The weekend’s not too bad though we never really went out. There’s still tons of things which I haven’t started. Will try and plan (again) later if I’ve got the time and mood.

Thoughts – From 1 to 4 Alarms

I HAVE POWER-UP!! That’s the first thing that crossed my mind as I cleared my notifications in the morning. Wrong. I’m joking. It’s not. My first reaction when I saw <Missed alarm 6.00am>, <Missed alarm 6.15am> and <Missed alarm 6.30am>, at around 9.30am after I reached office, was “HOLY SHIT!!! Did I NOT hear ALL THOSE ALARMS RINGING?!!!!!!! O.O!!!!!!… !!!!

10.08am – So… did I have a good rest in that 2 days of MC? HELL NO!!! I’m feeling freaking more tired than ever! I could hardly sit down and have a good rest for my dearest little milkie kept on asking me to accompany her to play this and that. It’s till a point where I had to bargain with her to give me that 10 minutes rest.

3.22pm – Like what the lil’ hub said, it’s going to be terrible as I’m beginning to have memory failure. Earlier this morning, I’d forgotten to bring my spectacles out. Luckily I’ve got a spare in my office. Then at lunch, I realised that I left my hp in the ladies’ restroom. Goodness me… how can that happen! But the worst thing came when I wanted to get help. I couldn’t. Fortunately and unfortunately, I only remember a few numbers. Those of my family members and that’s it. I felt totally helpless in front of the phone which I borrowed. A call to the lil’ hub didn’t help because he never picked up the phone. Somehow, I managed to get one of my colleagues through the help of the staff at the club. And thankfully, some kind soul returned my phone to my receptionist in the office.

7.47am – It’s Monday again. Little Milkie won’t be going to school until her cough recovered. She will be visiting the doctor again. I should have went with her last week. Gosh… It’s another 40 bucks on consultation. Milo’s vaccination cost 400 bucks. Tell me… Where do I get those spare money even if I don’t spend? Although it’s been months, I still feel like strangling him whenever I thought of it. But seriously, I think I need to put in more effort on it. I’m lagging way behind…

8.59am – Right, so today is the start of the first day of the Chinese 7th month. And what will that means other than all the *cough* coming out? It’s going to be a smoky month! Oh yes, I’m already experiencing it. And that is not really that good a thing.

Anyhow, finance had been tight. As in really tight. I’ve got a shock when I logged in to my bank account yesterday. It’s like less than $10. Well, I’ve got some GIRO deductions, you know and so… Hmm… though I didn’t really feel like touching my pathetic reserves, it looks like I don’t really have much of a choice.

My facial package will be ending soon too and I doubt I’ll be signing up for another one. If I ever do that, it’ll be another $100-$200 a month at least. How am I to fork out for that kind of money? But I’m glad I asked to let me go and think about it before I just did it on impulse (like I used to). Guess I’ll have to be more diligent back at home from now on when it comes to maintaining my face.

What’s worse? It doesn’t sound all that good when one hears what kind of news were reported. Sudden devalue of RMB? Interest on bank loan increasing? Increasing number of flats? Economy crisis coming? Sigh… Now I’m wondering if it’s a good time to actually buy that house… I hope we didn’t make a mistake by doing that…

Must try hard. Really hard to think of ways to earn more money now. I can’t survive if it’s just based on my current peanut salary. Ganbatte!

9.24am – Ah… it feels like ages since I’ve last written my blog while working. Feels soooooo goooood… I think I ought to change my career and become a writer. I might just become better and thus famous *LOL* Anyway, this blog is somewhat in a messy state yet again. I hope I’ve got the time to clean it up, I really do. Never like it when it’s like that. But I do know what kind of circumstances I am in nowadays. It’s those “you always go out”, “you never do anything” kind of statements coming out from my mum when it’s the first time I went out with my colleagues after working for almost 4 years, and am busy trying to do all the sidekicks’ jobs such as washing the bottles and plates, and helping to carry the baby to bathe, or accompanying little milkie to play. I guess that’s life. No one will commend you for not going out and stay at home to help to take care of the children. No one will take note if you are doing all the backend jobs. But if it’s otherwise, then all the sh*ts come out. Not that I want to be particular, but it’s true that I’m getting so tired these days…

*Breathe*

Hang in there… things will get better after my breakfast! ^^
