    @starlight he is almost ten months, too young for honey based on current recommendations. Everyone else is sleeping. After we get through the night I will get some vaporub. I've used it with my older children when they were little, and it does help some. Thank you for your duas - I'm sure you can relate to how bad it feels when mama can't make it all better. 

    Its the worst feeling when your baby is in pain and you cant do anything. 

    I pray your baby gets better soon. INSHALLAH KHAIR

    I can't set aside 30 continuous minutes. Two of my children think they still have their umbilical cords.

    My weight is a little high right now, but I'm more concerned with strength and endurance. I noticed I'm not as strong as I used to be and sometimes feel tired after normal activities. I can't chase children like I used to - I have to send the older ones to catch the younger ones. But in fairness, within the past year I had a baby and two surgeries. I just don't want to start falling apart yet - my family still needs me.


    Then start with 10 minutes. There are a million videos out there. Start your search now.

    *opens new tab and searches for 10 minutes cardio videos* :clap:

    I am not very good at jump rope. I think it's only good cardio if a person is able to continue for more than a few seconds at a time.

    I was excited about getting into shape, but now I've lost my steam. It seems so difficult with the little ones. 

    You should try "cafemom studios" videos on youtube. They are very good. They include cardio, core strengthening, workout with weights, yoga etc. It is just a 30 minute routine (one video). 

    I know it is difficult but dont give up yet. Set a target. It is healthy to loose 1-2 pounds a week. So go for it.

    Want to do it together? :brucelee:

  4. Have you tried Cardio? Jump rope is a good option. But you need to mix it up. Cardio with core muscles strengthening is a great way to go. Also exercise without diet change is of no use. So you need to change your entire diet plan. 

    For motivation I follow a few people on Instagram. I really get in to the zone by looking at the results they have achieved by changing their lifestyle. 

    I am also trying to loose weight, slowly getting there. INSHALLAH soon. 

  5. Thank you everyone - it's a hard time for because i really really really wanted her; somehow i knew she was a girl. i miscarried so we had a very short time together and that's what has shattered me. i cannot put up a brave face anymore.


    but thank you for your kind words - shows SC has some truly caring people :)

    Innallaha wa inallahi rajion

    May Allah(SWT) give you patience. Always remember this world is temporary. It will end one day. And so will all the hardships we face. May Allah(SWT) be with you always sweet sister.
