The Final Challenge for the year

Yes, I know I have been sucking big time at blogging lately,

As I was saying in my earlier post-- life has been crazy lately, with a minimum of 11 hours of work day including the commute time!

I have not been as deligent about exercise as I should be!!!

And for this to work and for me to not go back to my old ways, I need to exercise and eat right, that is really the KEY to make this work and stay here and go backwards (weight wise) as I will end up where I came from and I would HATE to do that

I am holding a "FINAL CHALLENGE FOR THE YEAR" --/any body reading is welcome to join

The rules for me are

  1. Exercise minimum of 30 minutes of the day /5 times in a week.
  2. Track everything I eat.
  3. Wear my Fitbit.
  4. Start the Wednesday Weigh ins again.
  5. Go to the WW meetings and check in back on the blog every Saturday.
So those are the rules for me, if you would like to join me, please leave a comment so we can check in with each other.and stay more accountable.

Other things I have been doing--Went for a Christmas Party at my New work place wearing this

I have also been to the gym atleast 3 times a week, BUT that has not been cutting out for me lately as the weight isn't moving much

Hence the change in plan, if I could do this in February when I started WW then I can do it again.

TO keep myself a bit free during the week, I usually cook up a Storm for the week, that way I am relatively less tied up during the weekdays.

Then during the week ,we heat and eat , that way I make sure the family eats home cooked food .

I can also then spend time with homework,and spending some quality time with the kids.As otherwise I used just spend all my time in the kitchen in the evenings.Its hectic on Sunday mornings as I have to spend half a day to cook BUT

It is so worth it!

That's it for now!

I did not loose my "Way"

Hello Blog world!

I have been away for a few weeks, where do I start,,,,,,

Well the first week when I did not write was due to the fact that I had something up my sleeve and due to obvious reasons I did not want to say anything on the blog,

in mere anticipation and also the fact that I did not want to count my chickens before the eggs were hatched.

I was offered a 6 months Contract position with a Large Organization beginning of October but they had a bit of a delay due to reference and other checks.

I started work end of October, and it has been more than a couple of weeks,

the hours are a bit longer than I was used to in my previous job,

and although the position is a Contract,

this experience would count and it is in a field where I have more experience in and was looking to get back into.

I am so thankful for this opportunity coming my way!

On the weight front, I am still doing what I was doing, exercising,although last week was a bit hard,,

The week here's what I did, my work hours are 8:30-5 pm I need to leave home at 7 am so I can drop the kids to the daycare and then reach work on time.

I leave work at 5 pm and take the transit home by the time I reach home it is 6:30 usually on an average, so I have no energy OR motivation to go the gym after that long a day



So I used to wake up at 4 am and get to the gym at 4:30 am and workout till 5:30 and then get back home to start getting the kids and myself ready to get out the door.

SO the point is where there is a WILL there is a WAY!!

Go mee....

I have also joined Weight Watchers,(again) this time only for a limited amount of time and want to get rid of whatever weight I need to

Luckily the WW Membership for this expires exactly the day before my 40th Birthday in January!

So we will see how it goes.!

That's it for now, more later...

XOXO, Sheetal
