I have just finished doing Wii Just Dance challenge with Miss 8.
We did 2 rounds.
The first round, we did 5 songs, and obviously lah, I won kan (Mum dia kan ratu menari kat annual school concert masa jaman budak2 dulu, kahkahkahkah).
So, I yang baik hati bagi lah chance dia menang the second round, hikhikhik….
So, we both end up happy after sweating ourselves dancing.
I dapat exercise and Miss 8 yang terlebih chubby tu pun dapat exercise jugak.
I know it is not optimum but at least I am doing something to tackle her increasing weight.
I said to The Other Half yang if only Miss 8 is a lot taller, then her current weight wouldn’t be an issue.
But since dia ikut keturunan I yang kemetot, her current weight is a bit too much for her height.
She is an active girl but maybe not as active as she’s supposed to.
They have Morning fitness at school every day, they have sports session once a week, she plays at the playground every recess and every lunch time.
I guess the main issue with her is that she lovesssss to eat and overeat in the process.
She used to eat as much as Miss 12 and sometimes more, manalah tak bambam kan!
The Other Half kata sebab when she was growing up, my cooking skills were expanding and getting better at the same time, tu yang buat dia sukaaaaaa makan, hehehe.
And she is not a picky child, she’ll eat most things and she loves to try everything. She loves healthy food and she loves non healthy food .
(Masa Miss 12 kecik2 dulu, my cooking skills were a bit limited so tu kot yang buatkan dia tak berapa gemar nak try everything.)
But we don’t want to make it into a big issue because she is already sensitive enough when people mention her weight, so I don’t want her to be paranoid and obsessed about it.
She knows deep in her heart that she’s a bit chubby for her age and height and I know occasionally, she feels slightly awkward and embarrased about it.
I don’t want her to be one of the statistics…..
So, for the time being, what I do is reducing her school lunch box stuff gradually, reducing the amount she eats at every meal and coaxing her not to have seconds.
And The Other Half will take her out for a bike ride whenever possible. But sekarang ni since dia slalu balik lambat, they have stopped doing that during the week, tu yang I kena cari cara lain nak suruh dia exercise every day.
She likes it when others join her in ‘exercising’ so she doesn’t feel bored and she doesn’t feel like she’s exercising.
I pulak selalunya busy lepas ambik diaorang from school so memang susah lah nak keluar rumah nak exercise kan.
So, I guess the next best thing is doing the Wii dance with her for half an hour. Dapatlah jugak dia and I berpeluh kan.
I know it will take some time since we are doing it slowly but insyaAllah, we’ll get there someday kan.
After a long rambling about food and the effect , let me show you what I have for dinner tonite.
The Other Half wasn’t home for dinner so I made myself mee ‘rebus’ from leftovers, hehehe.
Don’t ask what’s in it because you wont want to know, hikhikhik.
But it wasn’t too bad actually, habis lah jugak semangkuk I makan!
Rupa ada macam mee rebus, but rasa dia lain dari mee rebus, heeeeeee……
