All Work N No Play? I'll Be Dull Claire!

This is another 3 days weekend! I welcome that very much, can give me time to "unwind" and relax myself in the house after a 3 days stint in Penang last week. My siblings have been advising me to slow myself down, cut off badminton..... (what? r u joking? not to play my weekly badminton?)

OH Gosh, I cannot possibly do that.... badminton is the only game I play once a week and my only workout that I sweat a bit... to cut off badminton will make me a "ALL WORK AND NO PLAY, MAKES ME A DULL CLAIRE"...... (oh, how come it rhymes so beautifully??)

Today is Saturday, I will "curi curi" go and play once more.... I know my siblings meant well.. cos these few days, I have been experiencing some ... er.... "not so smoooooth breathing", like not enough oxygen to flow into my whole body (my version of how I feel)

If I don't exercise, I think it is worse, sitting here whole day will cause back pain, eyes strain, hands stiffening, legs cramp.... apa lagi... worse kan....

Ok, sshssshhhhh.... I go take breakfast now, eat healthily and then sweat it out later.... I promise I wont over-exert myself during the badminton session.... I will play one game, then I rest, one game, I will breathe hard... fu...yoh.....fffuuu....y0hhhh..(shin chan always does that!)

  24. gosh, i wondered what happened.. i just read a 911 piece of email, i am going to post it in my ABC blog... i hv to gulp down the "lump at my throat" and prevent the tears from falling...

  25. i like badminton too... and volleyball. the only sports i know

  26. Exercise moderate should be ok, just don't over do it.

    Agree with you, if we don't do exercise it will get worse. At least we feel great after exercise and had a good sweat.

    Sometime i had the same problem, not so smooth breathing and little chest pain while exercise. Me getting old liao. :(
