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 !

My Remedy for Nausea and Bloating

There’s this special remedy for nausea and bloating that I am so excited to share with all of you. It has helped me tremendously in dealing with my nausea and bloating in pregnancy.

It’s none other than Peppermint-Ginger Plus !

remedy for nausea and bloating

It’s pretty obvious from its name that it contains peppermint leaves and ginger, but that’s not it, it also has fennel seeds and anise. That’s why it’s called Peppermint-Ginger Plus !

peppermint
Peppermint helps to relax stomach muscles and has a calming effect. It helps in digestion, motion sickness, alleviates gastric pain and heartburn.

 

gingerGinger stimulates saliva secretions for the breakdown of food. It helps ease stomach discomfort, menstrual pain, morning sickness, nausea and bloating (wind).

 

 

fennel seedFennel seeds are known to help ease a bloated stomach and symptoms of cold.

 

 

anise seedAnise seeds are believed to have been used by ancient Egyptians. It helps relieves poor digestion and menstrual pain, cough & phlegm. It is also said to stimulate the secretion of gastric juices for digestion

 

 

Shaklee has combined these four herbs and it’s main purpose is to help improve nausea, gastric pain/disorder, bloating (wind) and burping and indigestion.

remedy for nausea and bloating

These are how the tablets look like. :)

During the recent Raya season (when I was stuffing myself like nobody’s business), my tummy was constantly uncomfortable, bloated and I was nauseous to the point that I literally had headaches.
After popping 3 tablets of Peppermint-Ginger Plus, it relieved ALL the discomfort I was going through. Alhamdulillah.

Worked. Every. Single. Time.

I have even suggested it to my sister in-law, Linn and Alhamdulillah it has helped ease her discomfort as well. :)

So there you are, my extra special remedy for nausea and bloating – not only in pregnancy but whenever, wherever ! InshaAllah. :)

Fun fact: You can even dissolve the tablets in hot water and take it as a drink !

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 Shaklee Before and After Pictures

Hi y’all !
Assalamu’alaikum. :)

Hope everyone is doing a-ok. :)
I have deliberated for quite some time to share these pictures with all of you because the before pictures are a bit embarrassing.
But I thought that since there has been improvement and it’s obviously a positive thing, I definitely should share them !

First and foremost, I would like to state that I have never had flawless skin and even now, it is not completely flawless.
A little history – I started breaking out in high school all the way through university. I have used benzoyl peroxide gel, adapalene gel and topical antibiotics for my acne.
In 2008, the doctor I saw in HKL when I went for my pre-employment medical check-up prescribed a 4-months course of oral antibiotics for me.
I did not even complain about my complexion, so that’s how bad my acne was ! Sob sob.

I know how it feels to not want to go out and the let whole world see how ugly my skin was. I had very low self-esteem and I was always self conscious and sort of depressed because how my complexion looked like. :(

Alhamdulillah, the oral antibiotics did help to clear up my skin but I still had acne scars, both dark and pitted ones which are more prominent on the right side of my face.
That’s why I have gotten used to showing the left side of my face when I pose for photos. Haha.

Presenting, the transformation of the right side of my face !

shaklee before and after

As you can see, that was how my right cheek looked like back in 2006 – red, pimply and scarring was obvious.
In 2012, I had less pimples but my scars were still very much obvious. I just started consuming Shaklee products that year.
And the most recent photo in 2015 was taken a couple of days ago. Can you see the difference ?
Alhamdulillah ! :)

The 2006 photo was taken using my Canon digital camera, the 2012 one using my Samsung Galaxy S2 (and you can still see the scars so clearly !) and the 2015 photo was taken with my Note 3.

Here’s another photo:
shaklee before and after

How I looked in 2008 compared to how I look now. Can you see spots, scars and red inflamed skin in the 2008 photo – even on my left cheek ?

Alhamdulillah, Shaklee products (only with Allah’s grace of course !) has helped improve my skin tremendously. I do occasionally get zits these days but they are definitely not as bad as before.

I have also managed to lose some weight and maintain it with the help of Shaklee products and some exercise.
I have been battling with weight issues for as long as I can remember. I think I was at my heaviest during my diploma days – my weight once reached 60 kgs. My weight dropped to about 46 -48 kgs after a bad breakup but I gained all of it back after that. Haha.

I was 52 kgs when I got married and 54 kgs before I got pregnant.

Of course, I ballooned during and after pregnancy ! I gained a whopping 16kgs which means I was 70 kgs before I delivered Khayla.
After giving birth, my weight plateaued at 57 -58kgs and I struggled to lose that excess 4-5 kgs.

shaklee before and after

I have managed to bring my weight down to about 52- 53 kgs now. Look how chubby I was 2 years ago !

Alhamdulillah, I am so grateful Allah has led me to Shaklee and I love how it has helped improve my life. :)
If you want to know what Shaklee supplements I am taking on a daily basis, you can click here. :)

Of course, you can contact me if you need free personal advice and consultation (unless you’ve already bought you Shaklee supplements from someone else, then you should seek advice from that person, hehe).

Fun fact: Mr Sunshine got to know me back in late 2007 when I was all pimply and chubby, haha. I love you Sunshine ! :*

Ok bye !

Our Raya 2014

So I am finally getting down to writing about our Aidilfitri celebration in the month of Zulkaedah. Hehe. Well, better late than never, kan ?

I wasn’t on a long leave during Raya. In fact, I was already back at work on the 3rd day of Syawal. :)

I actually have a not-so-happy story about our baju raya but I do not wish to dwell on it.
All ya’ll need to know is none of us got back our baju raya (and cloth) which we sent to a tailor nearby my house. We = Mr. Sunshine, Khayla, Marc, Marlene, Daddy, Fahim, Linn, Syahieda & I.

Hmm.

Anyway, this year was our turn to celebrate Raya in Batu Pahat first, so immediately after work on the Saturday before Aidilfitri (yes, kerja juga), we drove back to Batu Pahat. Alhamdulillah the traffic was smooth, so we managed to reach my in-laws’ place just before berbuka.

Sunday was Raya eve so we were all busy slicing, dicing, and cooking for the next day !
Many of Mr Sunshine’s relatives were around so the less work for all of us haha.

raya shaklee

A rare occasion in which Mr. Sunshine is helping with filling in ketupats. Haha.

shaklee raya

This is obviously not a rare occasion – me dressed like a makcik, chopping onions in the kitchen.

Ketupats in the making !

After berbuka that day, we performed solat Maghrib berjemaah. :)
Ok not ‘we’, I couldn’t pray at the time, hehe.

And then the barbeque session started !

Mr. Sunshine with his cousin & uncle hard at work barbecuing fishes and squids.

I also helped out. No, I wasn’t just standing there pretending to hold the squid. Hehe.

On the first day of Syawal, as usual there was the bersalam-salaman & asking for forgiveness session in the morning after the men came back from Solat Sunat Aidilfitri, and then we were off to beraya at Mr. Sunshine’s uncles & aunties houses around Muar. :)

We headed back to Gombak that evening itself.
Had a little Raya dinner with Daddy, Marlene, Marc & family.
The next morning almost all of us were down with diarrhea ! Yes, all of us except for Marc, Daddy and the two kids (Alhamdulillah) had to run to the toilet every hour or so.

All of us !

Then it was back to Shah Alam for Mr. Sunshine, Khayla and I because I had to work the next day !

Although my Raya leave was short, but Alhamdulillah we got to visit most of Mr. Sunshine’s relatives and be with my side of the family in just two days !

Of course, I don’t leave home without my little pill box of Shaklee supplements to keep me energized through all the traveling (with a kid) and keep the weight off from indulging in all the rendangs and lodeh ! Haha sempat lagi promote. 😀

So that’s how wonderful my Raya was, how was yours ? :)

P.S: There is an awesome DOUBLE PROMOTION from Shaklee going on in September, will write more in my next post !
