plan to prevent holiday weight gain

Monday, December 16, 2013

I really need a plan for the upcoming holidays because, we are visiting our cousins, and there is going to be lot of cooking, home made delicacies by my aunt, there is going to be lot of cookies and pastries for kids, so i really do a plan to remind me to stay on track!!!

one thing i have noticed is, since it is winter, i dont feel like drinking water at all, so i have to work on that need to drink at least 8 glasses of water, to stop these headaches and to flush all the toxins from my body, and ensure its healthy functioning.

stay away from temptation: ok that is going to be hard, so i am going to work on portion control and say no to second servings....

eat breakfast so i dont get very hungry at lunch and thro the day.

keep moving and aim at least to walk 30 mins/day

Aim for 10,000 steps /day

enjoy my time with family.

happy holidays emoticon 's enjoy the time of the year with all your loved ones.

What I am learning about myself in each round of BLC!

Monday, February 04, 2013

I have come a long way in areas of fitness and eating right. I have been participating in various rounds of BLC's and each and every round has taught me something new and i have discovered, learned and sometimes (mastered) many areas of fitness and right eating.

here are some of the things i have learned, or discovered that i can do it !

I have learnt to love my fitness. it is not a 20mins or 30 mins thing anymore it is my routine, and i love that it is part of my everyday activity. I feel incomplete if i dont take few fitness breaks

When I started the BLC i was purely a cardio person, all i knew was cardio, joining the BLC's and the various challenges helped me learn to train and tone my body. I really used to hate my Strength moves and used to initially do it just to earn the weekend challenge points but now, I love it, i love the fact that regular strength training helps me tone my body and makes me feel fit even though the scale dont show any lower numbers emoticon

I have learned to eat healthy food that are good for my body and mind and to resist temptations.

all the weekend challenges have helped me develop healthy habits like
drinking my water, sleep, me time and these definitely help in fighting stress and help in focusing about the essentials of life.

So A big thank you to BLC and my warrior team who have helped me learn so much about myself. its my teams constant support and motivation that keeps me going in this journey of weigtloss.

ST was new to me before BLC too, and I've had to force myself. I still love cardio more, but I do 3x a week ST, and I can see the difference in my body.

emoticon And yes, I started with Barbie weights before moving on LOL.

I've enjoyed getting to know you as a team member, and am grateful for the FitBit info you shared. I use mine all the time.

  I wish you the best of luck as you reach your goal weight. May I suggest you read TINAJANE76's blog entry "The Top Ten Things I Wish I Had Known about Being a Maintainer Before I Became One".

I think it helps address the question you posed in the title. (Or maybe I misread the title and its only rhetorical. Sorry if I did.)

    To be honest it must be a thought that everyone has.

If you carry on you will continue to loos weight (bad) it you put your cals up and don't exercise you will put it back on.

One good thing about it is that you will know how to take it off, still not good.

Life is a circle

Ringo Challenge day 3

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Day 3: yeah today i had to really push myself. it was a busy day, and i had to constantly remind myself to be on track. we went out for lunch today, i decided what i was going to eat and just ate that! yes no major temptation, so i didnt over eat. I was craving for something sweet after we came back home, But Thank God! there was luckily no chocolates or sweets at home, so i just opted for some Almonds and walked away from my kitchen! I only took few short walks today, no major exercise, i was feeling really tired so took it easy today! so that was my day, to come to the challenge part
10 things i am grateful for,
# My apt GYM
# online exercises for injured like chair boxing, seated exercises, that still keeps you on track inspite of injuries.
# for the senses to enjoy the beauty of nature, love the Fall colors.
# support from Spark friends who leave such encouraging Comments on my blogs . Thank you!

# to my mom, my Dear Husband and my In- laws who are my pillar of support
# My neighbourhood friends
# to facebook that keeps me connected to all my dear friends, near and far!
# For my extended family!
# for my love of art and creativity.
# to my Chiropractor, who is really helping with my knee treatment.

Savoury Truffle: sweets and chips!

Ok overall it has been an average day! but now I am going to bed with a determination to make tomorrow a much better day!
