Gratitude !!

Friday, September 07, 2012

Its been a long time, almost a year since I blogged here. GOD is great and I am grateful for all HIS blessings. We are blessed with a baby girl. Though the journey was rough, we really cherish the new gift of life.. Every day with her is different. Sometimes its the tiredness, mostly its the joy.. We did not realize how a little one can change our priorities upside down. I thank GOD for the support I get from my mom who is here to help us out, my dad who manages in my mom's absence back home and my husband who bears all my frustrations. With all these lovely people I am able to enjoy my bundle of joy. Without them, I can't even think about functioning well. Oh, how much did we long for this gift. We just cannot stop thanking GOD for all HIS blessings.

Check in!!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Its been a while since I posted anything in SP.. I have been off way too passive with all the happenings in my life.. Too many things to handle at the same time and my healthy habits took the last seat as always.. It is like I can always get back to this, but the other tasks can't wait.. Huh.. but if I stop and think of it.. I think I am wrong.. Once health is lost, everything is lost.. So, are the other things really as important as they appear? Probably not!

Oh yeah.. I get these spurts of wisdom at times which takes me nowhere if I don't act on them.. I know all the ways of taking care of my health, work life balance, etc, etc.. but what is the use if I don't use them in my real life?

Ok.. I need to get back on track.. I just started thinking about getting back on track.. May be I will take baby steps towards even getting back on track, and then towards my goal.. For now I need to track my calories which is the toughest job on earth for me. And there it all begins..

I hope I can track my calories atleast 4 days a week. I'll do a sanity check on how I am doing with this goal next week.

Its that time of the year again. Lights everywhere, gifts everywhere and food everywhere. We did also purchase a lot of gifts and are about to pass them on to our near and dear ones. Its great to be able to give gifts and I am thankful for that blessing. At this moment, I wish peace, hope, love and happiness to you all. Have a wonderful festival season!

Beginning again!

Friday, December 17, 2010

I am beginning again.. Couldn't bring me back to Spark consistently for the past few months and I am seeing the results.. But now I have reassessed my goal and changed my starting point. God willing, I hope to be consistent this time.. So many people in SparkPeople reach their goal and I feel why not me? I know I have a limitation with my body that I may not get that far like others, but I can be consistent with atleast 10 minutes a day, except for the worst days.

But I have noticed that when I get up early to exercise, I get tired and sleepy earlier in the evening. May be I should try having something nutritional food in the evening? This is my first week and I am tired already. May be I'll take it easy during the weekend?

I don't like to see my recent pictures. They all have huge arms and cheeks. My shirts don't fit me in my arms well.. I really don't want to go about buying bigger sized clothes.. Now that I am in a different office, I don't have the previous lunch gang where I eat pretty much all junk that's in the table. So that is a good thing that has happened recently, though I miss their company.

I have given away most of my smaller clothes after coming to a conclusion that I may not get there. Even if I get there, I may not be consistent. Whatever is the case, I don't need them now. May be someone else needs them.

Work is getting hectic, but inspite of all that hard work, there's not much progress and recognition that I expected. And things are slowing down now for the holidays. I'll be travelling the last week in December and I'll have access to all the junk food in the world. How am I going to control myself to just a bite?

sorry.. venting after a long time..

Happy workouts!

    Ok, this may sound trite but going to say it anyway. This is the start of something new, do not look backward look forward and set small goals so you can make them. I think weight loss should be like the Turtle and the Rabbit you do better when you are a Turtle.
Tough season to start, just remember little steps.

    I think we all go through seasons like this...or at least most of us do. We pick ourselves up and head towards our goal. Merry Christmas to you!

Happy Diwali!

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Its festival season and lots of sweets everywhere.. We did receive our Diwali gift pack of Dry fruits and nuts at work yesterday.. The selection was indeed wonderful with a mix of dry grapes, dry figs, dry prunes, cashew nuts, almonds and pistachios.. I began tasting a couple of those and ended up eating a handful of each variety.. Not just that, there's food everywhere.. We also had a lunch party at work today and I am still trying to overcome the hangover :) yeah.. I guess I overdid it.. I haven't recovered from the tiredness of my recent trip.. I'll have to get back on track soon.. With all the food and tiredness I am feeling sleepy now.. Have a late evening meeting at work tonight and hence I am stuck here.. Not feeling like even taking a walk.. Its been almost 2 weeks since I got some workout.. I need to slowly get back, else I am going to become a couch potato soon..

Have a happy and safe Diwali!
