Goal's to be met at any COST

I have slacked BIG TIME past 3-4 days, haven't counted any calories last 3 days :( BOO YA!

But I heard the song (Lakshya tau har haal mein pana hai) meaning goal's to be met at any COST!

So, that is how its going to be.

Well a part of the reason I have slacked a few days is my work time (as I mentioned earlier) has changed for 3 weeks and that means I go to bed @ midnight.

So that means I can't make it to the gym first thing in the morning, and then once Hubby and twins are off to the daycare, I can't leave Big Brother home alone and go, so I don't see myself going to the gym until Aug 7th atleast.

However I plan to do some Home Video starting Monday, tomorrow I do plan to go to the gym  in the morning.

Oh! and I haven't dared to step on the scale for a while, but we will see how it goes.

How's it going with everyone else?

Weekend---What weekend?

Thursday & Friday the twin boy was sick and hence home (couldn't be send to the daycare) Friday mid morning I got a call from the daycare saying that now, the twin girl is also sick and needs to be picked up-YAY ME-BRING IT ON!!!

Anyhow, so I was home with two very cranky and opinionated toddlers, Friday was such a whirlwind that I can't remember when it came and when it went, all I remember is I didn't get much time to go to the Gym during the day, and I kept thinking I will do so at 7 pm when the twins go to bed, but by 7 pm this Mumma was too tired to walk from here to there,leave alone go to the gym. :)

I thought Saturday would also be somewhat similar, however the twins got super tired by 9.45 am and went down for a nap, so off I went to the gym and really had a killer workout on Saturday, I did 45 minutes of cardio and then some leg strength circuit on the machines.

I did 30 minutes on the Treadmill


and then 15 on the Elliptical



My weird obsession



Saturday was super duper busy, I got back from the gym and then did this




Yes, I made roti's and then we had lunch right after!

 Big brother had his basket ball lessons in the afternoon so I went with him and husband stayed back with the twins, the lesson was for an hour.

So I went to Walmart in between his lesson time to get a gazebo for our Patio-Now that the Sun has decided to shows its face regularly (knock on wood) we thought, we might as well get a gazebo so we can enjoy some, meals and play outside.







So for the update on my SMART GOALS

Exercised 4 days instead of 5 -I'm okay with that
Have gained a pound since the last post but I'm okay with that too-since fluctuation is normal.

Sunday morning it suddenly dawned upon me that I was supposed to be working a different time zone shift from Sunday as I was covering someone who was on vacation starting Sunday-boo-so I worked from 2 pm, although it was not overloaded thankfully. I still had to be available for work.

Eating wise-it was great right till Saturday, One thing which is working well for me is tracking everything I eat, so that I am more conscious of what I put into my mouth.

Sunday went a little downhill, but I am back on track today.

 So hopefully all should be good!

HELP!!---My Food is controlling ME!!!

UGGGH!!! As the title is clear, I have made the worst food choices over the weekend.

 I have been horrendous with my choice!

Like sadly pathetic!

When will I EVER get it in my thick SKULL that eating like there's no tomorrow is just giving up on my end goal and giving in to the what I want 'NOW'

It all makes sense to me in my head,but its harDER for me on the weekends than on the weekdays.

It's like I want to reward my self for the job well done over the week, on the weekends!

UGGH--

Note to self



Starting over is not hard,

Today is a new day, a new way. I have tracked every bite I have taken so far.

Making healthy choices going forward!

~~~My body is PERFECT~~~

Just the other day I was having a conversation with my ma about how I just don't seem to be loosing any real inches in the mid portion,regardless of how many crunches or sit ups I do.

And her reply was "But you've have two pregnancies! "

My reply was "I know so many others who have had as well" but their tummy is flatter than mine.

I have been really insecure about how I still look a 2-3 months pregnant even though I am not!(Thank God)

So I asked my sister-who by the way just had a baby 6 months ago, if her tummy has gone back, and she said it considerably has.

Made me think what I was doing wrong that my tummy isn't getting in flatter.

Today, for some reason I had a EUREKA moment-

No matter how much I complain about how my tummy looks rounder than it should, and how my hips have not gone in yet, I still know this for a fact that this same stomach has nurtured 3 beautiful (two at the same time) children.

Don't you agree?



For that --I need to give myself the credit,

no matter how much I whine about the weight I have gained in the twins pregnancy, a part of me is still proud of the fact, that when the doctor asked me to gain a certain amount of weight, I didn't once think about myself, and all that my goal was at that time was to have two healthy babies come into this world!

Even though I'd die for a tummy like Christina Vergara,

I will still give it up in an instant anytime for these three monkeys in my life!

For, it nurtured my kids, every stretch mark on my tummy tells a story, a story of how my beautiful body made room for three beautiful human beings.

How they made my body their home for 9 full months before coming to this world.

How a mother did not think of her body but was selfless enough for the babies growing inside her.

I need to keep reminding myself of this every time I have a 'poor body-image' moment

My body is PERFECT!!

SMART Goals

Thought I would make some SMART goals for July (stands for)

S- specific
M-measurable
A-Achievable
R-Relevant
T-Time bound


  1. Specific- Loose 5 pounds in the month of July.
  2. Measurable-Get atleast 30 minutes of exercise 5 days in a week.
  3. Achievable-I think keeping a 5 pound loss goal should be achievable for me in the month of July
  4. Relevant-To my end goal which is to weigh lighter than what I was (in Mar 2011-172 lbs) by Nov 2013 
  5. Time bound-I think I have made this time specific in a way that I do need to loose those 5 lbs by the end of July.
So there you go, its all out in the open. I am determined to stick to this.
