Change of name, a Challenge and a Diet Bet

I have been thinking of changing the name of my Blog for a while now,

Not because I did not like "Me Fat Free" BUT on second thoughts, I do NOT want to be

completely "FAT FREE" if you know what I mean.

I want some Fat on my body!

However no good name was coming to me, (you know for me it has to be a "Light bulb" kinda moment)

So anyways, I am on Instagram with the name "Luzingmyweigh" (please do add me if you are on Instagram too)

Suddenly today it dawned on me that I should try and make my Blog the same name too, hence this name change,

I quiet like "Luzing my weigh" as I feel I can connect to it, I have been loosing my way to find this weight loss trick to work.

So, that's an update for that!

I was to go to the Gym first thing this morning, but since I could not get to sleep early last night, that did not happen.!!

BUT

I did manage to run today a good 4 K ,it was a lovely day (read no rain day) here in Vancity, so that worked out well.


I love to run outdoors, but since the weather does not permit I do with the Treadmill-My last nights run 2.72 miles-Not too bad eh!



I have also been quiet diligent about tracking since Wednesday.

One thing that I have decided is, I will not give up something completely on this journey, but will definitely cut the portions to half or less.

For e.g- I did cut the portion of my Chips ( I will not cut it out completely from my diet)

Last night the hubby made a super yummy Potato curry,(which was swimming in oil) so I quickly made a Spinach and grape salad for myself instead, and I am so proud of not giving in to the temptation!





On other news I am joining two new challenges starting October 1st one is with Desiree-Stay away from the treats and am in the midst of deciding what the goals to make for this one,

I will post them once I make them.

Another one I am joining is with Brooke-Not on a Diet this is a Diet Bet that I joined, if you don't know what a Diet bet is-It is a basically betting money to loosing 4% of your starting weight in a 28 days!

If you would want to any more accountability please do think of joining these challenges.

That's it for now.

Pulling myself out of the closet

Hello everyone,

I have a confession to make and that is that last week I was hiding!!

UGGH

I know, I know, I realized that it is harming no one else except me,and hence I have decided to pull myself out of the hiding,

Well I was doing really great up until a while ago about 2 weeks ago

I even ran the Terry Fox 5 K race


After the end 




My running streak has also been pretty good,




I was also doing great with my eating


However I slipped BIG time for a while and have  gained some weight,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I weighed myself last Wednesday and was too too embarrassed to post!!!!!!!!!!

BUT I have to do this for ME.....................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hence this is a promise to me--- I will not hide--no matter what my weight,, going forward, and to hold myself accountable I will take a picture and post it every Wednesday!!!

In other news--I joined a 24 hrs Gym and started going last week onwards.

YES!! It sucks to gain and loose the same 5 lbs for over 3 months now,and only I can change that.

Moving on with this and tracking very deligently from now on.

Weekend fun and Wednesday weigh in

This past weekend was Onam (Festival celebrated in the part where my husband is from)

We were invited to a friends place for some celebrations--I have to confess here,we accepted the invitation (and then I worried if that was the right thing to do) as since the twins birth, we have not

socialized a lot, only cause they are such a handful, and we don't want to mess other peoples homes, lol!

I love to dress up and wear saree!

Here are some pics from then



Anyhow , surprisingly I did pretty well with food around me, I did take second and thirds BUT my portions were really really small, and then I did not eat much for dinner to compensate


On a totally random note, someone stole my phone and took some selfies, and thought I would never know lol



my running and eating has been consistent, even though my tracking has been slacking BIG TIME


So without further ado, 
Last weeks weight-166.2
today's weigh in-165.6
Loss of 0.6 lbs
It's good, I'll take it





That's it for now
XOXO, Sheetal

Weigh in Wednesday and "I am alive" update

SO I have been super quiet on the blog I know, I was super depressed and wallowing in self pity last week or so,

I had my hopes HIGH for a job that I was interested in,

I thought my interview went okay!

and I really thought I would get the job,

only to find out that they rejected me with a reason beyond my comprehension.

Anyhow,

I did not let that affect my activity or eating nonetheless,

although I did not want to face the "Blog world" to talk about it,

BUT

I am over it now,

and would like to believe that this too is happening for a very GOOD reason,

GOD has a plan for me,I may not always agree with his plans

BUT I have to agree that they are for the BEST of me!!

Anyhow, Jasmine from #Fleurtysummerchallenge has been such a great host and I am enjoying this challenge.

Here are a few of my selfies and eats


and my runs... Not too bad still sticking to the Couch to 5K



**************************YUCKY FEET ALERT&*********



Here's my today's weigh in is 166.2
Last time I weighed myself-probably a couple weeks ago was 169 lbs so I am finally seeing a progress in the right directions.




Now--to keep it going in that direction!

Linking up with the ladies
