Disorganized ?

Thursday, July 09, 2009

I have been disorganized lately.. Lost the motivation to do things.. I have a whole lot of pending tasks to do both at work and my personal life, but I have been procrastinating it for a while now.. And have that butterfly sensation at my stomach when ever deadline approaches.. Its my problem.. Had I completed the work beforehand I would have avoided that stressful situations. I need to manage stress to bring my illness to remission..

I am going to prepare a huge list of all the pending tasks that are awaiting to be completed. Then I will prepare a small list of tasks that require immediate attention and will plan to complete them by the end of day today.. That is my plan for the day.. Alongside, it would be nice if I can get in about 30 minutes of cardio and 5-10 minutes of strength training.. And I am planning not to include any junk food today.. That is my simple short term goal for today..

I am praying the Almighty to give me the will power today to resist all the temptations to over-indulge in eating and avoid the pressure to procrastinate. Wish me luck !!

    Hi there - don't let yourself get overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done! Sounds like u have the right approach, however, u might want to break it down into a schedule so that u have a certain amount of time for each item/task that u need to get accomplished.

Good luck - you can do it!!

What strategies do you use to prevent plateaus?

Monday, July 06, 2009

I am in a plateau right now and would like to follow the following strategies so that I can get past it and my current short term goal is to lose 2 pounds and firm up my loose muscles in the arms and thighs.. So for that I am going to follow the following if feasible.

Food:
Two fruits every day for sure.. and just one piece of junk food the whole day.. No deprivation and definitely no over-indulging.. And reducing the quantity of carbs..

Exercise:
hmm.. Here is the hard part.. Its not that I hate exercise.. but its really really difficult to find the time.. I am trying to do atleast 10 push-ups a day and trying to be active.. I don't do a lot of formal exercise but I am trying to fit in how much ever I can.. trying to be inefficient in my moves so that I get atleast some more movement.. I am the person that believes that every bit helps.. But if I really get that time, I would like to fit in atleast 30 minutes of cardio everyday.. and I wouldn't forget the strength training part.. Both are required to break my current plateau..

So that is my current plan. You would know if I broke it by the end of the month..

    Hi, there!
I like the "alternate calorie" method, where you you stay inconsistent with your daily caloric intake. If you change it up a bit, from day to day, your metabolism gets confused and starts working better. Another thing I did recently was adjust one of those fad diets to something healthier but keep the gist of it the same. For instance, I chose the 3 day fad diet where you eat about 700-800 calories a day. But I added a whole bunch of fruits and veggies. Thus, I ended up eating about 1200 calories a day and 70% of that was from really healthy foods. It worked for me, but I'm sure you can adjust any diet in the same way, adding healthy foods. Maybe for 3 days, don't have that daily one junk food. Good luck!

Mixed feelings !

Monday, July 06, 2009

Today is one of those days that I don't feel like working but am in an elevated mood.. Not sure why.. but I didn't feel like working at all.. I did prepare a project plan though, so I can actually get started with that plan soon..

And I just had a slice of Chocolate Truffle cake celebrating my co-worker's birthday .. It was yummy but now I am feeling damn guilty.. Have another party tonight and I am planning not to over-indulge there.. So that I don't screw up my entire day..

These days I don't rely on the scale alone.. I see how I feel during the day and above all how my clothes fit. Working towards my goal of tightening my loose muscles.. I am planning to get down 2 pounds in the next month and reduce my loose muscles.. I really need that special will power to do this... How nice it would be when my arms and thighs are tight.. I am dreaming towards that and hope and pray to the Almighty that I be healthy and work towards my goal and above all achieve it..

And I am really thankful to the great Lord for that good test results for my mom on Saturday.. He is really wonderful and listens to me in my needs..

Now that trip in a month... That has to go well.. All the preparations, and good health for all of us.. and hope everything else should fall in line..

Are you afraid about gaining back the weight that you've lost? How do you plan to prevent that from

Monday, June 29, 2009

Yes, very much... My first goal is not to gain any more weight and only then comes the goal of reducing weight... With SparkPeople's fitness and nutrition tracker, I believe I can get there.. But I am little worried about my illness which if flared up, then I'd leave it to GOD...
