Sleep

I slept later than usual last night so I started to feel like I needed to go back to sleep right after my morning prayers, although to be honest, sleeping after my morning prayers is normal for me when I don’t have to go to work or prep the kids for school. In fact, to…

Walk

Had a walk today. 2.4km in total. Wanted to go further but had to consider my partners, didn’t know they’d be able to go that far, they’re today’s MVPs.

Dear Stomach, You are bored, not hungry, so shut up! Love, Me. P.S.: I worked out today, don’t ruin it.
