The My FitnessPal update

I wanted a way to log my everday diet and fluid intake.While I will update the details here a better place would be My FitnessPal . It lets me log food and water consumption .
This the report for 28th June

the biggest loser club

I mentioned about the group of collegues that I have roped for a biggest loser challenge. We finally created  a group on Facebook for it for daily updates. The plan is to weigh in on Monday. I dread it. My workout plan starts on sunday, I know a lot may think its a bad idea but simplicity sake as Sunday is the 1st of july , it seems fine. It  would make Saturday the rest day, which will be great after a long week of work, home and  workout. I have allowed my self one cheat day in a month.

As for the update on the diet, i have certainly started thinking about things that I put in the mouth . Also there is a tab on waking up to water and the water intake for the day. It is nearly reaching the 1.5 ltre mark. This journey is surely going to be uphill.
Ohh I also have the Ripped in 30 DVD. I was wondering whether I should start with Ripped in 30 or the 30 day slim down plan. Will keep updating if there are a change of plans.

Diet Plan

All weight loss programs fail due to diet. "You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into your mouth every day and expect to loose weight.”  Skinny Bitch.
When I got pregnant I stopped worrying about what I ate worst still I continued doing so after the birth as well. Chocolates, ice-creams, chips, samosas, jalebis you name it and I ate it, all in the name of  pregnancy and child birth. One thing I would request all pregnant women is to watch what you eat while you are pregnant or you will end being the fat mummy that you loath being.
I was size 0 before my wedding (all my life till the age of 30), reached a size 12 after the wedding and stayed there for 2 years, went back to a size 0 (workout, diet ) and stayed there till pregnancy.
The crux is I haven’t it in me to be fit and to eat sensibly. This diet plan was created after reading a lot of diet books. Reading list: Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight and Women and the Weight Loss Tamasha by Rujuta Diwekar, The Four-week Countdown Diet: Now You Choose How You Lose  by Namita Jain, Confessions of a Serial Dieter  by Kalli Purie and whole load of blogs. All these books are by Indian authors so amazing for Indian Food plans and recipes  
Most of this is just things I know I have to do bit don’t do
These are the guidelines for my diet
·         Drink at least 3 liters of water daily.( I have serious issue with following this)
·         Calorie intake should stay between 1200 to 1300 calories
·         Watch what I put in my mouth
·         Wakeup to 1glass of luke warm water with a dash of lime
·         Eat something within 10 minutes of waking up.
·         Never skip breakfast.
·         Eat every 2 Hours
·         Eat home cooked food on most days.
·         Eat my fruit and veggies
·         Limit Intake of sugar to 2 tsps. daily
·         1 Serving = 1 katori = (1/2 cup) =100gms/ 100ml
Diet Plan (1200 calorie)
Wakeup: 1 glass water with a dash of lime
Pre workout meal: 1 small banana (elaichi banana)
Post workout: Protein shake or 2 egg whites
Breakfast: muesli with fruits or 2 idlis with Sambhar (loads of veggies)
Rule : 2 Servings of Cereal (bread ,wheat flakes, poha etc)+1 serving fruit &Vege+ 1 Protein Rich Food.
Mid-Morning Snack:  1 serving Cereal (rava idli/pocorn/khakra or any ) +1cup beverage(herbal tea/buttermilk/)
Lunch: 2 serving cereal( roti, rice,poha, )+ 2 serving fruit and veges+ 1 serving protein(sprouts,curd,white meat--grilled)
Afternoon Snack: 1 serving fruit/nariyal pani
Evening Snack : 1 serving protein rich food(nuts,  curd or 1 dosa or 1 panki or 1chilla)
Dinner: Starter Sip +2 katori nutri bowl+ 2 katori Fibre filler + 1 serving cereal + 1serving  fruit + 1 serving protein rich food.
                     

I know that it seems like a lot and dinner looks heavy but the portions are small. And the serving size is for cooked food not before that ( cereals).The detailed diet will be posted every day along with some easy to do recipes

workout procrastination

I certainly wanted to start my exercise regime two days back but haven't begun. Reason,sleep. I wonder if its because I don't get enough sleep or that i have to wake up so many times to feed the baby. Anyways whatever the excuse I have to do it.
I know part of the problem is  laziness and my habit to procrastinate.I surely need to stop it and start working out. I dont think i will be able to do it tomorrow either  cause i have to be at work early.
God the weight keeps piling on I am not doing much about it.
The only light at the end of the tunnel is that I am trying to stick to my diet plan. The next blog is about the diet plan.

My weight loss plan

I need to loose weight and I need to lose it soon. There are couple of reasons I thought that this should be the first place I need to work on in my journey to be yummymummy. But the most important of them all is be healthy and fit so I can take care of my daughter  and be there for her

The goal........
My current weight-------70kgs .( Shocking ......this was my rude awakening today)
Goal weight  in 4months----------- 58kgs
Goal Weight in 6mnths-----------55kgs
I need to also checkin the other stats so I  can track the inch loss.

In my journey to lose weight the biggest hurdle I see is to be able to stick to the plan. No matter how motivated one is it always easy to slip. To tackle this one I roped in some collegues at work on a biggest loser challenge to help me stay on track .  More on the biggest loser challenge in the coming weeks. A challenge like this helps me stay on track and the incentive is amazing. 

So what is the plan., two things diet and exercise.

the weight loss story at 34

I am 34, mother of a beautiful baby girl and wife to a handsome man. Does that make me happy? Not really.
I gave birth to my princess six months ago and love the feeling of being a mother but what I dont like is not being able to look in the mirror and feel  good. The person I see in the mirror is a Fat old woman with dark circles, tired looking face and most of all completely clueless of life. Its like seeing me without passion or fire.
. Can a weightloss  and image makeover change it, maybe and maybe not. What I need is a complete overhaul (image, attitude, passion,dressing style and confidence) I want my old self back , not just for my daughter and my husband but most importantly myself. I started this blog to love myself again, to be the yummy mummy that my princess will be proud of. The deadline is 6 months...Intime for my daughters first birthday.

So there are couple of things that I want to do
  • Rewrite my Mission statement
  • Rework the goals
  • Weight loss
  • Rejuevnate my career.
This blog will be my journal, my memoir of my weightloss and loving myself journey. Please feel free to comment or leave motivational thoughts if you drop by.
