MCO Day 17 & 18 ~ 3 & 4 April 2020

Our condo Management issued a new circular to all the residents yesterday, with some new restrictions added to the already long list of prohibitions at the condo throughout the MCO.  The new restriction prohibits residents from doing all forms of recreational activities within the compound of the condo!  With this restriction, I can confirm that I will go bonkers and can check myself into Tg Rambutan if the MCO is further extended!!

Can you imagine being cooped up in a 1,500 sq ft unit with kids, mil and spouse 24/7 without being allowed to even walk within the compound of the condo?  It can get really depressing on some days.

Today (4 April) I finally got out of the house to our neighborhood supermarket to do grocery shopping. It’s been exactly 7 days since I last went out of the house. Driving my car felt weird and I thought that my car felt bumpy and strange 😆 Thank God my car could start!

Brunch on MCO day 17, 3 April 2020:

Oven-grilled pork chop with Gouda cheese and croissants that our neighbor gifted us:

Sherilyn who is also bored to the core offered to cook dinner. She grilled organic chicken thighs, made a yummy creamy mushroom sauce to pair with the grilled chicken, grilled celery and carrots and made a mash of potatoes, carrots and orange sweet potato.

And grilled gigantic Portobello mushrooms seasoned with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and ground black pepper.

Stay In Shape At Home

With the Covid-19 pandemic affecting over a million people in over 200 countries, most people all over the world are now staying home in a lockdown to contain the spread of the virus.  Getting outdoor to exercise or at the gym is now impossible. I’m one who does not fancy exercising in the house in front of the screen. I still prefer running outdoor but this will have to wait until the MCO is lifted. The latest guideline issued by our condo Management states that residents are not allowed to even walk or run within the compound of the condo!  I was devastated when I saw the circular on the wall of the elevator today.  I am really going to miss my quiet one hour pre-dawn outdoor workout 😢

If our MCO is extended beyond 14 April 2020, I think I’ll need to start a workout regimen in front of the screen at home. Though I haven’t gained a pound throughout the MCO, I can’t be sure of this anymore if I continue to skip exercising for another month!  I may even need to wear a waist trainer for women if I continue to stay at home without any exercise.

Some of you may be wondering what a waist trainer is.  Waist trainers are meant to squeeze your midsection and “train” your figure into an hourglass shape. They’re basically a corset with a modern twist.  This constant constriction around your waist eventually works to reduce your natural waist size over time.

Waist trainers help you maintain proper posture while you stand and sit because the metal bones in waist trainers make it impossible for you to slouch. They improve your posture by providing the necessary support to your back.  Many women and celebrities vouch that they feel more confident when they see the changes in their waistline and posture after wearing waist trainers.

A sweet sweat thigh shaper, is a thigh slimmer that provide thermal compression to the thigh area promoting an additional increase in heat and sweat when used during exercise. More concentrated heat to the thigh area will not only keep your muscles “loose” during exercise, but may also help fight against painful hamstring and quad injuries.

You may temporarily lose a small amount of weight, but it will likely be due to loss of fluids through perspiration rather than loss of fat. You may also eat less while wearing the trainer simply because your stomach is compressed.

However, this is not a healthy or sustainable path to weight loss. Some companies that make and sell waist trainers suggest exercise and a healthy diet as part of your weight loss plan.

With stars such as Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba raving about the  effects on social media, waist training – a workout done while wearing a tightly laced corset – has become a popular exercise trend for those seeking an hourglass shape.

Once you have weighed the benefits and disadvantages and have decided to try waist training, you can browse for the best shapewear at Shapellx to find a waist trainer that suits your needs, style, and purposes.
