I 'm a 30 year old mom of two kids and married to a wonderful man.Living in a different country is hard for me,made merealize what i was missing from the smell of the bbq on the street to the shouts and laughter of the kids and teenagers playing tag in the moonlit night. The sweet noise of my mum calling or be it shouting my name.
Hey, hey, hey, is everybody ready for the coming Summer? I got off the phone talking to my friend and realized that even though its still a few more months before Summer its about time I start thinking about loosing the belly fat. Yup, I have such a big problem around my stomach area. After having a child, I never seemed to have gotten my figure back and that tight stomach. Not that I had a washboard stomach to start with but I was bikini acceptable. She mentioned about doing a lot of things including taking some top fat burners, working out and of course dancing. When she mentioned dancing that gave me and idea, I used to love dancing. In high school we even won a dancing competition grabbing the grand prize from the seniors. Dancing does help you burn fat while making it much more enjoyable and fun. I should start dancing around the house while doing housework but the question is, should I wear heels while dancing or not? Care to help me out with this dilemma?
Worrying about pimples and acne is the one thing that my cousin is plagued with until now. Before hitting puberty he had such clear smooth skin but that all changed. Puberty was just cruel to him, specially on his face. Even now at almost 30 he still has a lot of acne and pimples ruining the skin on his face. He had tried a lot things to treat acne with soap, astringents, creams, pill but nothing seem to work. I guess he really has to go to a Dermatologist to find out what treatment is safe and compatible for his skin. I know my cousin is a happy go lucky guy but I know deep inside he is embarrass about the way his skin looks. Also with his line of work as a call center agents, stress, and lack of sleep only aggravates his skin situation. I hope he finally finds the right treatment to finally get rid of his acne and pimples.
Lets talk about the things I miss and do not miss when I was pregnant. I missed the feeling of my stomach being heavy with my child. The constant movement of the baby that could either be pleasant and painful. The instant glow that mothers get when they are pregnant. Eating anything I could get my hands on without worrying about my stomach getting bigger as it already is, lol. I don't miss the constant throwing up and not being able to eat in the process. The nauseating feeling all the time and being car sick. Constipation that lead to a slight hemorrhoid which got me so worried. You see constipation is associated with pregnancy and when constipation arises your eventually going to get it or not. In my case I got it before and after I had the baby. While pregnant I didn't want to use any medication for fear of what it might do to my unborn child. It was after I had the baby that I got an over the counter medication. Had I know that an all natural hemorrhoid treatments was available I would have had relief while pregnant. At least now when I do get pregnant the second time around I know that their is a medication that is safe for me to use.
Back to reminiscing the good parts of my pregnant days. I was just different while I was pregnat. Believe it or not I felt sexy and more of a woman. People are more accommodating to pregnant women and they get a kick out of touching your belly. I loved dressing up and to emphasize my bump. I don't know If I'll ever have another baby but hopefully it will happen.
