woke up just in time to shower and rush to my in laws for our weekly prayer..found out i was the only one who made it..
1 hour later went with my husband and his brothers to attend a talk by one of their friends who had started running marathons at the age of 38 and has never looked back...It was completely inspirational and motivating.Just got the book written by him 'Dare to run' and i cant wait to start reading it!!
most of the sundays we eat with my in laws..but today my husband had already told them we wont be...i was surprised but did not say anything!He asked me ..where do u want to eat? i suggested a few places to which he said..no..
Finally he insisted we go to a mall which is about 30 minute drive...so we did.
we did not go up to the food court...we went to a store selling watches!!!!He smiled and said he wanted to get me a watch i wanted for our wedding anniversary which is 3 days later!i was stunned but super excited!!!within minutes we were out of the store with a new watch on my wrist!!
Trying to load a pic but the computer is not letting me do so ..so tomorrow i will retry...
My 9 yr old also got one for himself!
Then went up to eat..he wanted to go to the indian restaurant...i said i would like to eat light so we all decided to get our own things..i got my self a subway again!
we came back home and i had to get my 60 min of exercise in...it is like a sauna outside ...so i pulled out my borrowed zumba introduction DVD and had fun.
Just had our first attempt at Felafel for dinner and skipped the rice and sambhar.I had 5 pieces...was skeptical as i havent eaten fried in a while but i stayed in my range so i am glad!!
Got up not feeling too good .still put on my exercise clothes and off to class i went.
Today is saturday and usually we have a class where we stretch and then dance but my instructer had something else in mind!!
4 sets of knee lifts
side hop with punch-all 4 sides
4 sets of front kicks
4 sets of swing kicks
60 minutes- 392 calories.
rushed home,picked up my son,dropped him for class and went to buy some stuff!
picked him up in an hour and went for lunch with my sis in law to subway.
ate a veggie delite 6 " and ate 1/4 of a chocolate chip cookie.
came home and cleaned up my entire bedroom...dusting and putting things in place.
i tore up all my old journals...it felt good to get rid of all old memries....like i was ready to make a fresh start!!!strange!
moved the XBOX with the KINECT to my living room where we have more space...tomorrow i hope to get my son to teach me how to use it!looking forward!!
Then took my son to the beach..was joined by my in laws..so me and my mother in law went for a 30 minute walk while my son played with his grand dad!
30 min- 112 calories.
then we all went for dinner...
i did not choose to have the buffet!!!!!
i choose a sanwich with mushroom and ementhal...ate half and ate the salad served along with it and 3 fries!!!
My mother in law said that i was glowing...she was curious if i was pregnant!..I will take it as a compliment and i know its my food and water!!!!
BLC challenge states that i need to
I have been good with exercises compared to food...thats why the super slow weight loss....so compulsory tracking is just what i need...i need to make a note to earn my points!
so tracking it is!!!

I have been doing a lot of thinking ..lot of analysing...facing the numbers...difficult but thanx to BLC16 i had to take measurements..step on the scale..declare it!
I have been on spark people since june 2010.Its been over 10 months.
The journey has been slow with lots of ups and downs.
I have learnt a lot and i have tons to learn!
i have got very attached to my spark friends!!
just checked my weight tracker
started at 130 lbs
today i am 118.4 lbs
That means i have lost over 10 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also , i have lost more than 10 inches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lets face it-
my Body fat percentage measured in the morning...........34%
I really would like it to go down to 28%
any advise to do so will truly be appreciated!!
Also i have joined BLC16!!!

I have 12 weeks to show some result ..out of which 2 weeks i am travelling to switzerland and spain !!!this trip includes a 7 day cruise journey with the whole lot of my husbands cousins!!I think we are 35 family members meeting in barcelona..

to loose 7 lbs
to decrease my body fat percentage
to fit into smaller size clothing
as simple as
exercise( add exercise in the evening as well)
Have been observing myself.... Always have my son and my husband on my mind ... Their needs , their joys, their feelings, their requirements....
And what do they have on their mind: their own requirements , their needs, their own joys...
Today is a new day and I am gonna try to do things for my own sanity differently
Paint my nails
Eat dinner what I have in my mind
Do the strength training exercises for the BLC 16 weekend challenge
Read the newspaper before my husband
Go to the beach for a walk
Will not bother to remind my nine year old about homework, bath, brush ...
Will not discuss about the drinking and food and anything that bothers me with my husband
Will be happy
Will have fun in the things that I think is fun
