No more excuses…

Babushka was playing in her room a few days back and she found her skipping rope.She came out and asked SD and me to help her skip.We,each held one end and swung it,while she tried to jump over it..

Then I had a go and re-discovered the joys of skipping..Thats it..Skipping is now my no-more-excuse workout.


Today the kids were sick and I was stuck at home with them..not that I had any inclination to go out,in the cold. So,before dinner,I propped them infront of the TV and skipped rope..Babychino clapped and Babushka cheered! 🙂 

Next time,I will remember to wear my HRM so that I know how many calories,I burnt!

Today we are into week 4 of Mish’s 12 week body transformation..I cant believe how quickly the last 3 weeks have gone. I had really planned to stick to the nutrition plan 1 100% and if I can’t for some reason,then to make sure,I stick to my 1700 calories..but..today was a major flop..I was good till lunch time. Then we had the Dr. appointment at 3 PM..We didn’t get seen until almost 4 PM..the stress of a cranky 5 yo and a tired and very very upset 11 mo and the endless waiting got to me.By the time,we got back,I was hungry.And the Babychino threw up,all over herself and on me..and was so upset..by the time,she calmed down,I fed her and put her to bed,I was hungry enough to eat a horse..no seriously! I had planned to make some pumpkin soup..but didnt have the patience to make it .. just ate,packaged mac& cheese and some rice..Oh well!Tomorrow will be a new day!

Oh!I am so excited..this is the last week of school before the school holidays..then 2 weeks of sleep-ins..YAY!!

Random happenings

The InLaws were in town and the last 3 weeks just flew..SD was home for a week and between cooking,chatting,school drop-offs,Babychino,I was flat-out by 9 pm!They left on Monday night and I spent most the week,catching up with friends..coffee dates,play-dates,etc.
I tried to eat as clean as I could,when the ILs were here..it was VERY difficult,considering,I was cooking so much…I didn’t really get a chance to work out,either but I was on my feet for most part of the day and I am assuming that I burned off some calories then.
SD has been really sweet and bought me a set of Michelle’s DVDs..and I can’t wait to kick off Week3,and working out with Mish.

Meals have been planned,workouts diarised-So going to rock this..now I am just after a good yoga/pilates DVD to tide me through colder and wet months.
Hope you’all are doing well…

Weigh-in Wednesday-2

😦 😦 This weeks weigh-in is not good…:(
I have a gain to report this week..and I am not surprised after my pig-fest on Sunday! If anything I am grateful,its only a 300 gm gain!
I was very depressed and mad at myself..I went out for coffee with a friend and ended up going window-shopping.There were some dresses on clearance at my favorite shop and decided to try some on..I tried on a size 16 first and it was LOOSE!!! I tried on a size 14 next and that fit well.. WOW!I had gone up to a size 20 and I wasnt even pregnant then!!Size 20 down to a size 14 ..that called for a celebration and so,I bought the dress.. I mean how could I not!LOL!
Next Week’s weigh-in will be better!!

Weigh-in Wednesday-1

So,Round 2-2012,of Michelle Bridges 12 WBT,began on the 4th of June and today was the first weigh-in of this round. And I am happy to report a loss of 600 gms,since Sunday..and a total of 900 gms lost since,last wednesday.I am just so happy to see that the weight is coming off slowly and steadily!
I haven’t been able to follow to workout part,yet..The ILs are here,and I am busy cooking,entertaining..they are here for a very short visit..and we are trying to make the most of it..:) But,I am being very good with the diet part-I am sticking to my 1700 cals … I did eat some mithai today..I was working with the cleaner since 9:15 to 12:30,stopping only to feed Babychino..and then,took the ILs shopping ,as soon as the cleaner left.We were going to come back home for lunch..but got carried away and then there was a mad rush for school pick-up!Long story short.. finally ate ‘lunch’ at 4:30 pm! That doesnt justify the sweets.. but heck.. feeding a teething 10 month old,burns calories..and I am hoping that I burned it all off!!
I can’t wait to begin the workouts..I am planning on working out at home this round,because the cold weather doesn’t go well with my Asthma..so come Tuesday Morning..I am going to pop that DVD in..and sweat like crazy..make Mish proud!
I’ll sign off now.. will be back soon with more updates…
Take care my lovelies!

Post 24-Round 2

After sitting on the fence for the longest time,I signed up for My second round of Michelle Bridges,12 week Body Transformation Challenge.

I have to be honest here,when I started the last round,I was quiet neutral- I didn’t know if the program will work or not- I started out very motivated,but around week 8 or so, my dad arrived and then I started slacking..exercise was down to minimum and food was crappy too- we ate out quite a bit and even after he left,it was hard for me to get back on the wagon…but I tried..at the end of 12 weeks,I had lost 6.5 kgs and as of last week,I have lost 12.2 kgs from the first of January 2012 and sit down for this one- over 20 kgs since August 2011.. I am in no rush,I just want to keep chiseling away,slow and steady..
In my last round,I started another blog…yes yes I am obsessed with starting multiple blogs..lol..but,I couldnt keep up- the whole secret blogging is not my scene..I was not sure,if the program would work( sorry Mish!),I was scared to announce to the world,that I am going on yet another weight-losing mission…blah blah blah…but this time,I am not scared.I am ready to openly say that I am on a weight-loss mission and I am doing well..I am so proud of myself,for having come this far and I am not going to stop till I become the best version of myself,
I thought a lot about putting these pictures out in the world wide web… But I think I m ready..as ready as can be..if these pictures can inspire even one person,it will be worth it! So,here goes:


The first pic is from August 2011, I think 2 or 3 weeks after Babychino was born.The second picture is December 2011, few days before Christmas.The third and fourth pics are from February 2012(it’s the same picture!)
And the last picture is Last week- May 2012! The last pic isn’t very clear but I can see a hint of my collarbones there!

The next round starts on June 4th, and I am going to make up for the time I wasted in round 1! Bring on Round 2!
