Hello, I’m Still Here!

Sharing is caring!

Didn’t realize that I stopped blogging for 3 months, time breezed by so fast since the last time I was here! Hi, hello, yes, I’m still alive. In fact, I am thriving at the moment, albeit busier than usual.

I was busy with the new biz for the first few months but everything’s winding down at this point. The biz is at the point where it could sustain itself without me going around like a headless chicken. This means that I could shift my focus on other things. One thing that changed after becoming a parent, I’ve become quite the multitasker.

I was lazy back in the day but these days, I’m finding it harder and harder to do all the things that I have to do. It’s like, the day is so short. That’s pretty much the reason why I haven’t been blogging for a while.

As you can imagine, I’ve fallen deeper and deeper in love with my spawn. He’s turning out to be quite a beautiful baby.

I mean, seriously guys. I’m not saying this because he’s my son, my own flesh and blood whom I carried in my womb for almost 10 months and spent 18 hours in labor for but if you have eyes, you know he’s one hella hot baby. He’s my favorite subject now. If for some reason you did something monumentally shitty to me and I haven’t spoken to you in decades, make chika to me about my son. I will talk none stop.

Ah fuck, I’ve become one of those parents.

I’ve been working hard in the gym, btw. The right picture was taken last March, 3 months after giving birth and still sore from the C-section. I didn’t work out right away because that’s not allowed if you’ve had C-section (you need to avoid heavy lifting for at least 6 months) but I pushed myself to do bits of light exercises until June, when I officially started working out:

The left image was taken this month. Honestly, I could’ve lost more weight if I dieted. I didn’t slow down the eating, unfortunately. Caring for babies is so fucking tiring, I get hangry a lot. But! You can see that I looked thinner in the second picture, right?

Trivia, I didn’t lose a single pound in these images. So yes, I am working hard at the gym. So hard I get low-grade fever in the evenings, lol. One time, I thought I got dengue because of the damn nightly fevers. I literally went to the nearby hospital to get myself checked. But it turned out that I was just so exhausted from exercising that this old shell couldn’t take it no mo, hahaha!

I’m so old guys.
