Confinement with Shaklee

Day 33 of confinement.
This means Khaleel is already 1 month old, Alhamdulillah, and I have 11 days to go before I taste freedom. Haha.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to go through my confinement period with Shaklee supplements. Here are what I have observed:

  1. My perineum stitches healed faster. I remember very clearly about still having trouble sitting down properly and complaining about being sore down there 3 weeks after I gave birth to Khayla, but this time, it took about a little over a week for me to be able to sit and move normally. Alhamdulillah.
  2. I feel energized and fresh every single day despite the fact that I am waking up several times to nurse Khaleel during the night. In fact, I actually felt like getting back on my Zumba regimen last week but let’s not overdo it lah. Hehe.
  3. Alhamdulillah, so far I have no issues with breast milk supply although I do not get to express my milk as often as I should. Khaleel sometimes have to let go of my breasts, while panting and gagging a little because too much milk is going into his mouth. Hehe.
  4. I have lost 11 kgs so far. After I delivered Khayla, it took me about 2 months to lose the same amount of weight ! Just in case y’all did not know, I gained 18 kgs throughout this pregnancy. Haha. So I have about 7 kgs more to lose to achieve my pre-pregnancy weight. Wish me luck ! Hehe.

These are the supplements I take everyday:

ESP, VitaLea, Vita C, B Complex, Zinc Complex, Alfalfa Complex, Ostematrix, Omega Guard & Lecithin

ESP, VitaLea, Vita C, B Complex, Zinc Complex, Alfalfa Complex, Ostematrix, Omega Guard & Lecithin

And here is how I take them daily:

I take 1 tablet of Zinc Complex as soon as I wake up in the morning.
After lunch, I will take 2 tablets of VitaLea, 1 tablet of B Complex, 1 tablet of Sustained Release Vita C & 3 capsules of Lecithin.
I take another tablet of Sustained Release Vita C and another 3 capsules of Lecithin after dinner.
And before I go to bed, I take 4 tablets of Ostematrix along with 3 capsules of Omega Guard.

I drink ESP & Meal Shakes when I am hungry in between meals which is usually in the evening of before I go to bed.

I occasionally take Alfalfa Complex too, but I noticed it made my breasts engorge with milk too much (which is a good thing !) so I take it as and when I feel like it. Hee.

I believe that the Zinc Complex and Vita C helped speed up my healing process and the others contribute to my energy, weight loss (thank you Lecithin & Omega Guard !) and milk supply !
Lecithin has also helped me when I had (painful) blocked milk ducts.
Alhamdulillah.

All this while I have been reading and receiving positive feedbacks from others about going through confinement with Shaklee supplements, so I am extremely grateful and ecstatic I got to experience the awesome-ness firsthand. Yay ! :)

So happy I got to share this with all of you. And yes, I would definitely recommend Shaklee supplements for anyone who are pregnant or going through the confinement phase. Heck, I would recommend them to everyone ! Hehe.

Ok bye !

Reasons to Choose Shaklee ESP

I just wanted to share a few important reasons why people are choosing choose Shaklee ESP and why YOU should do so too !

Well, of course the most important fact is that it has been clinically proven to sustain energy hour after hour.

shaklee espApart from that, major plus points for ESP are:

  1. It provides 14 grams of heart healthy soy protein and 500 mg of calcium per serving
  2. Water (not with alcohol or other chemicals) is used to retain those critical isoflavones and provide you with the whole goodness of soy.
  3. It uses high quality non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) plant-based protein.
  4. Complete with all essential amino acids, including 9 amino acids which can’t be produced by our body.
  5. Helps to maintain muscle tone, tissue repair, and proper functioning of enzymes and hormones.
  6. Low glycemic index which helps maintain blood sugar
  7. Helps support the immune system, retain normal cholesterol levels and promote heart and prostate health.
  8. Lactose, cholesterol and caffeine free. :)
  9. Most importantly, it’s HALAL !

shaklee esp
This picture above just goes to show that ESP is for everyone, not only for women, but men as well !

Everybody looovvvesss ESP. Hehe.
I’ll be sharing a few testimonials on ESP in my later posts, InshaAllah.
In the meantime, you can read the ones I have already shared earlier.

Until my next post, bye !

September 2015 Promotion: Shaklee ESP

I have great news for all you Shaklee ESP lovers out there !
Shaklee ESP is on promotion this month. :)

shaklee esp shaklee esp
You can buy 7 canisters of ESP for the price of 6 OR you can buy 2 canisters and get 5% off your purchase !

I cannot begin to express how excited I am about this month’s promotion.
ESP ini kegilaan ramai tau !

I fell in love with ESP since I first tried it in October 2012.
My acne scars started to fade, my gastric condition eliminated and my energy was improving.
I was soooo disappointed when I could not take ESP during early pregnancy because it kept coming back out and making me feel nauseous. Hehe.

But now, I am back to my habit of drinking it daily along with all the maternal milk supplement samples I have been receiving.

Yes, ESP is safe to be taken before, during and after pregnancy !
It tastes good on its own, mixed with chilled fresh milk or chilled plain water, but you can mix it with anything you like, blend it into a smoothie or bake cookies with it.
The possibilities are limitless. Cewah.

Prenatal and Postnatal Vitamins

Selamat Hari Raya y’all !!
Maaf Zahir & Batin !

Better late than never, kan kan kan kan ? Hee.

Alhamdulillah.
I am now in my 2nd trimester, 25 weeks to be exact.
And I am now 10kgs heavier. Haha.

The nausea and lethargy I went through during my first trimester has slowly started to dissipate. Alhamdulillah.
And syukur to Allah, I managed to fast throughout Ramadhan this year with only missing one day because I woke up after Subuh. Sobs.
I was hoping to get to puasa penuh but I guess having to qadha 1 day isn’t that bad. :)

Mr. Sunshine has been such a darling, helping me to cook and clean for the past 5 months. Love you Encik Gigi Besarku !
I think he has this hidden passion for cooking, he keeps googling for new recipes to try. Hehe.

Just to share, this is the Healthy Prenatal set from Shaklee that I have been taking:

prenatal and postnatal vitamins

ESP
Protein supply for sustained energy, the building of fetal tissue and for a healthy uterus for baby to grow in !

VitaLea Iron Formula
This is a multivitamin with iron which helps us fill in our daily nutritional gaps. The iron in it helps pregnant mothers maintain healthy hemoglobin (HB) levels.

B-Complex
Complete source of B vitamins, including Folic Acid for mother and baby.
It’s critical to have enough folic acid in our system by the early weeks of pregnancy to prevent spina bifida. That’s why I recommend taking B Complex wayyyy before you get pregnant. :)

Sustained Release Vita C
Vitamin C helps improve our immune system, which is of course very important during pregnancy.

Ostematrix
Source of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, which is very important for bone and growth of baby. The calcium our baby needs is provided by our diet, so we have to make sure we get enough calcium in our diet.
Ostematrix also helps in easing constipation !

Omega Guard
To provide a safe and beneficial amount of DHA & EPA for fetal brain development.

So there you are, my basic prenatal vitamins !
What’s good about all the above is I can still continue taking them after delivery (with the addition of Alfalfa Complex), and I plan to do so, InshaAllah.

I believe these supplements have helped me stay energized throughout Ramadhan, with Allah’s permission, of course.

Just found out you’re pregnant ? Congratulations ! Let me help you decide on which prenatal vitamins you should take. :)

My Daily Shaklee Regimen

Assalamu’alaikum everyone.
Happy Monday ! :)

Hope everyone is doing good today. No Monday blues, eh ? :)

Today I have decided to share with you my daily Shaklee Regimen which is basically what Shaklee supplements I take and when I take them.

I am happy to admit that I have tried almost all of the Shaklee supplements and I have no complaints whatsoever. But these are the ones that I have stuck with. :)

My mornings are kick-started with my Mighty 3 Gems which is a combination of 2-3 tablespoons of ESP, 1 tablespoon of Meal Shakes & 1 tablespoon of Performance. I add 1 sachet of Collagen Powder on alternate days.

Shaklee Regimen

My Mighty 3 Gems & Collagen Powder

This is followed by 5 tablets of Alfalfa Complex.
This will count as my breakfast and it will usually keep my full until lunch or if I’m fasting, this would suffice as my sahur as well.

After lunch, I would take 1 tablet of VitaLea, 1-2 tablets of B Complex, 2 tablets of Sustained Release Vita C and 1 capsule of GLA Complex.

Shaklee Regimen

Look at how cute all of them look together hehe.

After dinner, I take another 5 tablets of Alfalfa Complex, another capsule of GLA Complex, 2 tablets of Advanced Joint Health and 1 capsule of Carotomax.

Lastly, before bedtime, I take 2-3 tablets of Ostematrix and 1 teaspoon of Vivix. But as I usually doze off while putting Khayla to sleep, I sometimes miss my Ostematrix (which I will regret the day after – body aches !) and I will have to take my Vivix early in the morning on an empty stomach.

So that’s basically it. Hehe.
Alhamdulillah this regimen has helped me keep my eczema at bay, I no longer have morning sneezing fits, I don’t fall sick as often as I used to, and my skin has improved tremendously. :)
Alhamdulillah, of course everything is with Allah’s permission. :)

No, you do not have to take the exact same supplements that I am taking.
If you have no medical conditions, I would suggest you start with the basic VitaLea, B Complex and Vita C. Preferably along with ESP.

If you need help in deciding which supplements you should take, don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to assist you. :)

One day I’ll write on what Shaklee skincare I am using, ok ?
Until my next post, bye !

Workouts I Love

So I’ve decided to write on workouts I love simply because I wanted to share the FUN workouts I do to help me lose/maintain weight, get toned and stay healthy !

Not everyone likes to exercise, am I right ? But exercise IS important !
Engaging in regular physical activity not only helps us lose or maintain a healthy weight, it also helps prevent a wide range of health problems, improves our mood and it gives that boost of energy we need everyday.
“If I exercise regularly, won’t I be exhausted ?”
NO !
In fact it’s the total opposite. I am speaking from my own experience. I feel fresher on the mornings I workout. :)
Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores. (Source)

Ok back to the subject, I started exercising when I was in high school.
My preference has always been aerobics/dance workouts, although I have jogged and went to the gym a couple of times. But I am not exactly the outdoors kinda person. Haha.

I was obsessed with Paula Abdul’s Get Up and Dance CD during that period. It’s a 1-hour aerobic dance workout led by, well, Paula Abdul.
PaulaAbdul

This DVD came out in 1995, so you can imagine how the dancers were dressed. Hehe. The workout is broken down into 6 sections, an Introduction and set of Instructions, Warm up, 3 sections of 3 dance steps each, a YMCA section and a cool down. What made this workout fun to me was that the dancers behind were in all shapes, sizes and age so it felt like we were all ‘regular people’ dancing together. You get what I mean ?

After I entered university, I bought the Pump It Up: The Ultimate Beach Body Workout DVD.
PumpItUpBeach

There are four main sections in this DVD – the Warm Up, The Main (cardio), Bums and Tums (works our hips and abs), and Warm Down section. A total of 1 hour of workout set to Ministry Of Sound dance music. The routines in The Main section are quite easy to follow, and they won’t really leave you aching for days, but the Bums and Tums will definitely make your bums and tums sore !

I used to love this DVD so much that I would sometimes do it for 1 hour, and then repeat !
And, I even bought another Pump It Up DVD, the Pump It Up-Burn It Lose It.
PumpItUp

The DVD starts with 8 minutes of warm up and all the other segments are 15 minutes. There is the Aeroburn section (pure cardio that will leave you breathless, hehe), BPM (cardio with really cool dance moves), Beatbox (cardio and toning – something similar to kickboxing) and Below the Belt (the toning section which includes lunges, planking, sit-ups etc).

What’s cool about this DVD is that you can make up your own routine, pick and choose which sections you want to do. Best kan ?

Then I was introduced to Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred which went on to be my No. 2 FAVOURITE workout of all (used to be number one, but I have found my ultimate favourite workout, details later).
30DayShred
I know, I know it’s NOT a dance workout but I could really feel and see the difference after only 20 minutes a day, in less than 30 days ! What more could a girl ask for ?
Seriously, this DVD really, really works ! It features three levels of 20-minute workouts, each of which features short bursts of strength, cardio, and abs (interval training), and a cool-down. All you need is a set of dumbbells and an exercise mat (for the abs section).

I used this DVD diligently before my wedding and even my wedding dress tailor noticed the difference in how I fit into my dress during the last fitting session. :)

I love Jillian Michaels !

So, which workout has managed to knock down Jillian Michaels from her number one spot in all of my favourite workouts ?

ZUMBA !!

Haha.
I was introduced to Zumba last year, and bought the Zumba Exhilarate and Rush DVDs and instantly got hooked !
And then I was fortunate enough to come across the Zumba Exhilarate Body Shaping System DVD set sold on Groupon, and I didn’t have to think twice about getting it.

ZumbaExhilarateThe set comes with 7 DVDs, a pair of toning sticks, and a program guide.
ZumbaToningSticksDVDs:

1. Step-by-Step – This DVD breaks down the basic Zumba rhythms and moves (1 hour)
2. Activate- a 45-minute Zumba class for beginners which applies all the moves learned in the previous Step By Step DVD.
3. Ripped –  is a 60-minute workout broken up into a toning section, using the 1-pound toning sticks, and a Sentao section, which uses a chair and your own body weight.
4. Exhilarate –  a full 60-minute Zumba class filled with really fun dance routines.
5. Rush- perfect when you’re short of time, this is a high-energy, 20-minute Zumba workout.
6. Mix- this is the coolest DVD, which features African, Latin, Indian, hip-hop, Asian fusion, and Flamenco dances from a variety of instructors. There is also a breakdown section which teaches you the routines which is really helpful.
7. Fitness Concert – this my favourite ! It’s a 60-minute live concert using the same moves and songs from the Exhilarate DVD.

I have been quite consistent with Zumba, doing it at least 3 to 6 times a week, even in Ramadhan. And I have seen amazing results. Results which I never expected to see with a dance workout.
My legs, abs and arms are more toned, not ripped, but more toned and I have definitely lost a few inches from my waist and hips !
What’s great is that I have an awesome time with Zumba !
Every time I put on any of the DVDs, I sort of get transported into another world and I don’t even notice that 60 minutes have gone by.

How can Zumba be so awesomely (?) addictive yet delivers amazing results ? Beats me.
All I know is that I can’t wait for my next Zumba session ! Hehe.

All the workouts I have mentioned are (in my opinion) good workouts which will definitely get your heart rate up and help you stay fit and healthy.

However you need to try them for yourselves because not everyone loves the same thing, kan ?

TIP: Drinking a protein drink after working out helps your muscles recover and grow. I always have a glass of ESP or my Mighty 3 Gems after my workouts. :)

Happy working out people !
