Workout Home Moms during the Quarantine Season

It all started when one of the girls in our Victory group asked how she can jumpstart her fitness journey, and since I’ve been aiming to get back in shape after slacking for months, I volunteered to be her accountability partner. So we started on our workout journey together by sending each other photos of our sweaty selves after each workout every day.

There’s just something about being in an unknown location, learning about the people, their culture, eating their food, and exploring the places. It is like living as they are, experiencing what they have. Some people might label this as appropriation, but there is a definitive line differentiating it from appreciation.

GIVEAWAY: The Learning Library Launches Wika’y Galing! Program Online

Winners have been announced! My kids have attended two summers of The Learning Library Filipino Wika’s Galing! program and they enjoyed both sessions very much, especially the classes they had in BGC just last year.
