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.

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.

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 !

His and Hers Sahur :)

Hellloouuu !

Good morning everyone. :)
We’re already on the 8th day of Ramadhan. MashaAllah, time flies so fast ! Pejam celik pejam celik, dah nak masuk second week of Ramadhan !

Everyone knows how important sahur (pre-dawn meal) is, it is not merely an act of waking up to fill up our tummies before we start to fast, but we also wake up to gain barakah.

Anas bin Maalik (RA) said that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Make suhoor because verily in As-Suhoor is Barakah (blessing).”

Al-Bukhaari (1923), Muslim, An-Nasaa’i, At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajh and Ad-Daarami.

Even when arwah Mummy was still around, most of the time I would only wake up to have a few glasses of water. But after getting to know Shaklee, this has been my sahur:

Last year, Mr Sunshine has also joined the ‘Shaklee Sahur’ bandwagon. Hehe. The only difference is his includes Cinch Shake Mix in Caffe Latte. :)

His sahur: 1 tablespoon Performance Drink, 1 tablespoon Meal Shakes & 2 scoops of Cinch Shake Mix
Her sahur: 1 tablespoon Performance Drink, 1 tablespoon Meal Shakes & 2 tablespoons ESP (=Mighty 3 Gems)

You can vary this concoction, you can add fruits, dates, honey, fresh milk, anything you like ! :)
I have improvised my Mighty 3 Gems by occasionally adding 1 sachet of Collagen Powder and 1 teaspoon of Vivix for that extra awet muda umph. Hehe.

My sahur is completed with the yummy Chocodates, which I discovered back in 2011 while I was pregnant with Khayla. :)

Alhamdulillah my Shaklee sahur has helped me stay energetic, hydrated and tak lemau (hehe).
