A lazy morning

I got up as early as 6.40 AM today. I had enough time to go for exercise, but couldn't do that. I really enjoy my morning exercise and is very disappointed that I couldn't make it today. But its OK for me as it was for Serah that I had to skip my exercise today. Serah is not keeping well and she wanted me to stay close to her. Hopy she will be fine by tomorrow.

As for yesterday's diet , I should say I am very happy with the way I handled it. I usually take some fruits to office to have in the evening so that I can avoid the oily snacks or the ice cold fruits that are available in our cafeteria. We were running out of fruits and I didn't get time to stop and purchase fruits because of my hectic work at office. I am skipping non veg for a month and so the evening fruit bowl was my comfort food. I was very disappointed that we didn't have any fruits at home to take to office. But I cut up some carrots and cucumbers to take to office. Though I didn't enjoy it as much as my fruit bowl, it helped me to keep away from the greasy snacks from our cafeteria.

I am feeling a it lazy as I didn't exercise today. No hopes for exercise in the evening as we have a hard time at work  and will be coming back as late ar 9.30 PM from work. Hope I could make it up tomorrow

It feels good to be exercising

Yesterday was a hectic day at work. But still I was able to stick to my diet plan. The only deviation was the half dosa and chutney I had around midnight. Siby had gone to a late night movie with his collegues and came back by 11.00PM. He didn't have dinner from outside and wanted me to make dosa for him. I was kind of half asleep when he came. I was a bit irritated that I was interrupted from my sleep. But I was happy that he decided for the better option of having dinner from home. I wasn't feeling hungry at all. But the paper thin dosa and tchutney tasted awesome which tempted me to have half of a dosa with some chutney. I was a bit disappointed with this. But its OK..No one can be perfect.

I got up at 6.30 today morning, but slept again till 8.00. I wanted to get up at he next snooze of the alarm which is at 6.45. But I had switched OFF the alarm by mistake and culd wake up only at 8.00. I was a bit late , but I didn't wanted to cancel my plan to exercise. So I dressed up fast and rushed to the treadmill to repeat yersterday's run. It included 1.5 minutes brisk walking and 30 seconds running for 20 minutes. I must say I felt really great to be exercising. It was't tiring or boring for me, but I was enjoying it from beginning till end. I wanted to do it for more time. But then decided not to do that as I may stress my body. The one thing that I alwaya try to implement with regards to my weight loss is
                                    "Slow and steady wins the race"
Hope it helps

Catching up

It has been almost a month since I posted here. The main reason was that I slipped  from my diet plan in between and was embarressed to post it here. But one thing I am happy about is that I continued with my plan irrespective of the slippages in between. I am still sticking to the diet plan. I could follow it perfectly on weekdays but tend to cheat on weekends. We had a few guests and celebrations in between and I used to slip from the diet plan on those days as well.

It has been almost a month since I started with this. The fact that I could follow it atleast on week days gives me immence confidence. I understand that failures are inevtable and if I am able to continue and make progress ireespective of it , then I am on the right track.

With regard to my exercise, I made some progress there as well. I have been exercising everyday though it was only brisk walking for 20 or 30 minutes. Today's exercise included brisk walk on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I used to hate running on the treadmill and always tried to run outside, but lately I have started liking treadmill. Off to work, See ya all in the evening with another post
