The Month of May ... So Far.

The month of May is coming to an end and what have I achieved?

1. Making the transition from calling YB's parents as "Uncle & Aunty" to "Mum & Dad" is a difficult one. I still freeze when I have to remind myself not to eagerly call them "Uncle & Aunty".

During our Ipoh dinner reception while YB was on stage making his speech (I secretly think no one could hear him above the din), I gestured to YB's dad to catch his attention, "Uncle! Uncle! YB is talking about you right now!"

I only realised my mistake 1 minute later. Eeks.

2. Back to square one - getting back into running shape.

Sadly, we've only managed to clock less than 30km last week. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to do my own 20km run this weekend but cross fingers that I can and will! YB's away for the week so I had to get my fat bum to the gym ... and I can only do as much as 30mins on the treadmill before I give up due to boredom. It doesn't help that there's no TV! (this is the condo gym, remember?)

I'm also hoping to improve my own record for the KL Rat Race of 4.5km. I'm nowhere near improving it, to be honest!

3. Maintaining my wedding weight - My mum reminds me from time to time!

Yeah, so. Since last year, I lost a total of about 8kg, which isn't much, really. I THINK. It sounds horrifying, to be honest, that I was once a bit fat blob. I still feel like a fat blob, though, and it's going to be a struggle to lose 2 more kg!

No one without a weight problem or hasn't tried to diet will understand how difficult it is to knock off another 2kg. It's time to add a bit of spice to the exercise regime, I think, but I'm not sure whether I want to commit myself to a gym membership.

Oh well.

4. Reading a classic - A Catcher In The Rye.

OK, I've only read a few pages and I'm already lost. I find myself inclined instead, to read Audrey Niffenegger's 'Her Fearful Symmetry'. Both books are by my side of the bed but the latter is the one I'd chose.

Like I told Joanne, it's no wonder I prefer to read Archie comics because I don't have to think and ponder so much!

And also admire Betty and Veronica's shapely figures.

Even if they are *just* comic characters.
