Sheena Halili talks about ‘life of a buntis’ during quarantine
As Sheena Halili acknowledged that it could be tiring to remain at home during the quarantine, the soon-to-be-mom talked about what keeps her motivated every day.
For Halili, staying productive by taking care of herself and exercising for her child are some of the things pregnant moms can do to pass time amid the COVID-19 crisis, as per her Instagram post yesterday, Aug. 7.
“Life of a buntis these days: Bahay lang tayo (Life of a pregnant woman these days: We just stay at home)!” Halili declared.
“Pero aminin natin, nakakapagod na din yung walang ginagawa!” she said. “Yung minsan feeling mo wala kang nakaaccomplish sa araw mo. Nakakadown, nakaka panghina lalo.”
(But let’s admit, it can get tiring to do nothing. Sometimes you feel like you have not accomplished anything during the day. You feel letdown, weak.)
The actress shared some of her activities to stay productive such as taking care of her skin, eating fruits to keep herself “healthy [and] pretty” despite the series of changes in her body, as well as online-shopping baby items.
“For me, nakaka happy rin kasi maka-kita ng gamit ni baby sa bahay (For me, seeing my baby’s stuff in our home gives me joy),” Halili said.
The actress also does prenatal pilates to keep herself fit and active. Halili assured that her simple workout regimen is guided by experts.
“Sarap mag stretch, sarap maging feeling strong!” she said. “Ang sarap maging productive kahit small steps lang muna tayo!”
(It feels good to stretch and feel strong! It is good to be productive even if it is just through small steps for now.)
The actress is expecting her first child with her husband, businessman Jeron Manzanero. Last February, the couple tied the knot in a dazzling, star-studded wedding in Quezon City. Halili first announced that she was with child last June. /ra
