Lets do the Wobble

C'mon everybody, c'mon everybody, lets do the Twist Wobble! Recently, I took up line dancing cos' I need the exercise since I'm not burning my calories fast enuf' compared to what I'm consuming.

Expert says: If you want to reduce weight, not merely maintain it, then you must burn more calories than you take in. You must eat less, and at the same time you must exercise more. Remember, you must do both. Dieting without exercise only sets you up for the perilous yo-yo syndrome of quick loss and quick gain. To lose weight permanently, you must lose it slowly.

So no crash diets for me. Besides, I'm not going on any fad diets since a breastfeeding mum must always eat sensibly; so exercise, I must. Wanna learn some line dancing with MG? Here's the steps:

Step ... step .... wobble .... wobble ......

Sway from side to side .....

Now get down on your knees .....

Move forward three steps .....

Lift up your arms ......

Grin from ear to ear ......

Now let a happy smile ... light up your face

Hehe. Gotcha! Actually, thats not a line dancing move. Its just how baby looks as he takes his first few steps. He looks absolutely adorable (If I may say so myself). With a little help, he can walk quite far and go places which makes him sooooo very happy. So, I will hold one hand while his sister (toddler) holds the other and together we walk him around the house and towards his target daddy. And when he reaches his target daddy, his whole face will light up with happiness and he would fling his arms (when we let them go) in excitement, his whole body bouncing up and down. Sometimes this causes him to plonk a little clumsily onto the floor on his bum where he would continue his excited bounce on his bum while raising his little arms into the air. His excitement is so plain to see. He must be thinking "Look everyone! I can walk! I can walk!"

Quick! Where's my viewcam? At the moment he can take one or two steps unaided. Yesterday, he took 3-4 steps. We're getting the batteries all charged up and ready to shoot the moment. This is sooooo exciting. Don't you agree? Did I actually take up line dancing? Nyah! Where got time to go for line dancing classes? Feel like dancing? Just pick up any of the two kiddoes and dance around the house with some music and they will be happy like mad. In fact, they love it so much. I'm never short of dance partners yunno.

  13. pompit, you may wish for the good ole days of quietly pushing her in the pram when you have to chase her down supermarket aisle or panic when you lose sight of her for a moment. Haha.

    momof2, anytime now, anytime now. Is your camera/video ready for the moment?

    a&a'smom, err not really. Think I need to increase my exercise days to daily instead of just 3 times a week.

    mistyeiz, maybe thats why!
