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
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.

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!

Today was not as successful as yesterday, didnt earn as many points. Overall I was feeling very fatigued and just wanted to take rest. But once i sat down to analyze how i did today, i realized i needed to get up and get things done.
Got in 30 mins of cardio and did some sparkpeople seated core workout! feeling really happy and energized now after my workout, so now i made my mind to get my workout first thing in the morning, before my day get started with kids and household chores.
Savory Truffle: cut down your food temptation for the day: i totally resisted my sweet craving today. opted for raisins and it satisfied my sweet craving.
so what started out as a dull day, ended up being quite productive. even though i didn't earn a lot of Ringo points, i did a lot of good things for my body and mind!
So at the end of the day I am
