Dear All Boobfeed Mommies,

As we all know Breastfeeding is IN; Its the most fashionable way to raise our offspring and give em the best kickstart in life. Chewah....ayat konon hip & happening.

But seriously, it common sense that we know BREAST IS BEST, right?

However, we all know that not many moms out there are properly educated on what exclusive breastfeeding is all about. Kalau ada yang properly educated pun, they might not have the proper support and courage to brave the breastfeeding challenges.

So............. what can we experienced breastfeeding moms can offer?

How about we become a great "boobfeed buddies" and support our friends in their breastfeeding journey. Hope you guys staying nearby could join this event. Boleh kita bagi semangat to other moms and moms to be to breastfeed their child.


-This is an event organized by a good friend of mine.
- Hope other mommies can spread the word in your blogs too.

How to be a RICH mom?

(Jgn jealous tgk keceriaan ku. Energetic kan? LOL)

Bukan jadi kaya in $$ wise. We can be rich harta and rich with love from hubby&anak. Its up to us on how to value richness, but 1 thing for sure most mommies are poor at/in........ENERGY!!

Today I'm giving tips on how to be rich in energy coz we all know that being a mom (SAHM, WAHM, FTWM) is till a fulltime job plus on call duty of a 24/7 employment, kan? So memang normal for us to be feeling less energetic most of the time.

I had a read from a few articles by a few fitness expert (also moms) and I gather these 5 Fast Ways to ensure You have Lasting Energy for the Busiest of days!

1. Eat Breakfast

Never ever ever ever dever miss your breakfast. I know most of us akan kata, perut tokleh terima food so early la.... Takde masa la....Takde selera laa.....

You know it’s the most important meal of the day! You make sure your kids eat it…you need to eat it too.

Kalau perut can't handle food to early, I suggest a trick that works for me during my days as a working mom. Sebelum solat subuh, I make myself a hot drink (ehem...mesti la coffee kan? Kalo tak takkan namanye coffeeholic..LOL). This warms up the tummy. Ada petua suruh minum air suam with a squeeze of lemon or lime so that it warms up the tummy and kickstart the liver. Then perform your duties; mandi, solat, prepare breakfast, bersiap & bersolek. Bila dah dress up lengkap, baru have your breakfast. For those yg beralasan tak sempat, bekalkan ur breakfast & eat it in the car on the way to work (ni my fav cara la, nak pulak kalo stuck in jam. so tak waste time by multitasking).

Choose breakfast yang high protein and fibre. Jangan la choose the typical Malaysian breakfast yang oily/fatty and carbo-laden because those akan buat kita mengantuk. Believe me something as simple as egg sandwich (egg salad+high fibre roti) or dah cukup.

2. Eat Protein With Every Meal and Snack

Protein, not only helps to maintain your energy levels, it also helps you to burn more calories than simply eating a carb-only based meal! This is also good for breastfeeding mom and other moms you wanna maintain a great figure.

Try snacking on kekacang? I know its tough coz I sendiri suka makan keropok & biscuits. :D

3. Eat Every 3 to 4 Hours
Eating often will keep your blood sugar and energy levels stable all day. It also prevents from a person to develop diabetes, kan?

So instead of eating 2 to 3 oversized meals - which demands more of your energy to digest and will only leave you feeling lethargic and bogged down - plan to eat smaller meals and snacks every 3 to 4 hours. Aim to make your meals and snacks 250-350 calories instead of a whopping 500-800+.

4. Drink Green Tea
Green tea is full of antioxidants, lower levels of caffeine, will prevent you from crashing later in the day. BONUS: Studies show green tea helps your body burn more fat when coupled with eating right and exercising.

Psst..I have to admit, I drink green tea to flush out the negative elements that I might get from my daily boost of coffee.

(NOTE– Green tea you brew – not bottled, “green tea”, full of sugar or worse...artificial sweeteners)

5. Move Every hour
Yes, it is obvious that I would tell you that you need to Exercise to feel more energized. You've got this point. But your body still needs to move and be active in between your workouts. Get the blood flowing, clear your mind, work your muscles and ease your joints. If you can, try to get outside for some fresh air and sunshine with a brisk walk.

My form of daily exercise these days would be pushing the stroller to the market (15mins brisk walk), kejar Miya at the playground (20-40mins mix activities), vacuuming (5-10mins of push & pull), cooking & cleaning dapur (total of about 1-3hours daily), solat ( 5waktu of about 5mins each with many similar to yoga poses) and many more..

If I stay active like this, I didn't feel letih pun until dah sedar "eh dah malam?". But on my lazy days (usually weekends where we 3 branak "sloth-ing" around and take a few days naps, I feel more lethargic. Weird kan, the one with the less energy used is the one yang bagi the letih.

So..these are my tips. Do you mommies out there have your own tips on how to be RICH in ENERGY?
