Day 0

THE BIG DAY IS HERE!!!! 🙂 download (1)

I am super happy…I do wish I hadn’t missed out on my last week of workout…but I am proud of myself for accomplishing the personal challenge I had set for myself 🙂

I don’t how many of you reading this know how this feels but it feels super amazing for a highly unfit round person like me to be able to do the strenous workout of day 30 successfully..                      download (2)



I know this may sound borderline boastful but I already feel like a svelte-toned-sexy-fit-gym-freak-modeldownload (4)

(though its still a faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away dream 😛 ) as I type my workout schedule that I survived of Day 30 🙂 :

Post work out I am way exhausted but I guess the fact, that today was day 30, kept me going 🙂

So, In conclusion…..

Was it easy?

Nope…this was probably one of the most difficult self imposed challenge I had ever taken up…But the motivation to not give up was there….I have had bad days and pitfalls….But I guess, the need to overcome myself has been a factor and definitely worth mentioning is the fact that you, my fellow bloggers have encouraged my efforts through your comments and likes….It motivated me to push myself so that I would have something to post about and to not fail..So, thank you for that 🙂

Have I achieved all I set for in my PLAN in these 30 days?

Well, not entirely…I still haven’t begun waking up at 5-5:30 am or started to go to bed at 22:00-23:00…                                        IMG_94599501905425

I have begun eating healthy, though I still have bad days where I end up completely binge-eating… IMG_52078998365288


I definitely have begun burning my calories…and most importantly, I have begun looking forward to my workouts instead of making excuses to avoid working out …images (15)

and to that I say, Cheers 🙂

P.S : In case you are wondering what’s next….Don’t worry…I am coming up with the plan for July 2014…keep checking this blog for updates


Day 22 :)

8 days to go!!!:)

I know its not a contest or anything but it feels awesome to be on the verge of accomplishing a challenge… especially when being regular isn’t my strong suit…

the workouts are now getting longer…but surprisingly my body is cooperating and allowing me to do them..it just gets a little monotonous counting more than 50 😛 but other than that I am good to go…

Today’s rigorous schedule was as follows :

It feels awesome 🙂

Cant wait for day 0! 🙂

Day 18!!!

I know I have had a rough patch past few days but I am glad to inform that I am back 🙂

& boy am I glad…Just 12 more days 🙂

Today I was taken by absolute surprise…When I saw the plan for day 18 , I wasn’t sure my body would comply to the demand of the workout schedule… 80 sit ups!!! 110 crunches!!! These words themselves sound like a horrible nightmare or a bad joke to a fat girl… and especially after not being consistent for the past couple of days, I was verry unsure …..But to my surprise, working out all these past few days paid off… I not only completed the workout with ease but also did so with minimum breaks 🙂 To someone overweight, this seems like an unbelievable dream 🙂

So, enough about me being awstruck 🙂 my workout schedule for day 18 was as follows:

So, all in all today was a good day 🙂

I do feel hopeful now to finish my quest as planned 🙂


Day 16 (Daddy’s girl)

🙂 I know it has been 3 days since the last post….Unlike the previous times I did not have any internet problems… I had emotional problems 🙂 I know it probably sounds lame! but that’s my reason… Sunday was Father’s Day 🙂 I know its silly to have a day to tell someone how special they are in our lives but when the person isn’t in your life any more , these days gain a lot of significance…I lost my dad 1.5 year ago..suddenly…without a goodbye n ever since it hurts…

I spent most of these 3 days doing nothing really… watched  tv , went for short drives, did pointless little errands…so as not to get all teary eyed & nostalgic and all…

Its not that I didn’t workout at all… I did half of day 14’s scheduled workout

and on day 15 I did good…

I just did not have the mental energy to type about it all…

Anyway, am good now and am glad that my moods did not stall my workouts too much…I dont know if I have lost any weight yet but I am fit to do the 95 crunches and 65 sit ups…n that says a lot for a person who is presently round in shape (not exaggerating)

I hope to keep posting and hopefully being blessed with success…Thank you all for walking along with me and extending your support towards my goal 🙂

Day 13!

Day 12 was awesome…absolute rest day 🙂

Day 13 had its challenges…but I am proud to inform that I did manage to wake up at 6 am 🙂 and workout today’s schedule ( I did struggle but I managed to achieve my goal for the day 🙂 )

Today’s workout plan was as follows:

I still struggle with my crunches and sit ups and of course the plank! But I have begun feeling the BURN post workout in my abs and a li’l on my thighs too..Hope this hints at losing the muffin top and less of thunder thighs 🙂 fingers crossed 🙂

day 11 :) :) :)

Today was a good day 🙂

  1. I woke up at 5 : 30 am 🙂 Yes….Finally…:) We still need to see if it was a one time thing or is this one going to stay 🙂 but for today, am proud of myself! 🙂
  2. I survived the gruelling workout plan of the day….Though I split the targets into numerous sets…I didn’t lose out to any exercise.. 🙂
  3. I survived 42 seconds of PLANK!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 
  4. It is barely 11: 40 pm and I am tooo sleepy ( which is good cos it means I wont be a night owl tonight 🙂 )

So, my workout plan for the day was:

My body is kinda sore…but I feel good…happy 🙂

I haven’t weighed myself yet or noticed much change in the way my clothes fit me…but in these 11 days, I sure do feel fit and healthy 🙂 So, I am guessing atleast a part of my goal has begun to shape up…to be healthy 🙂

Wishing hard for the other half to shape up soon too and shape me up all sexy 😉


Day 10! ! ! Ouch! ! ! :(

I hope you get the idea from today’s blog title that today HURTS!

My body is sore…even post a hot shower!!!

I barely scraped through today’s schedule…& I must confess I am very intimidated by the challenge!!! I know it is a bit of a late response to have cold feet on  DAY 10….. but till today, I was confident my body could do the target schedule…but now, am not too sure…the workout schedule is getting tougher and my body isn’t complying as much 😦

I am not being melodramatic….I failed to hit one of my target exercises today  😦 😦 😦 THE PLANK !!!!

 The schedule demanded that I do 38 seconds of plank but I let go at 28 seconds & in my second attempt at a measly 12 seconds (though , I could have sworn that the second’s hand on my watch was toooo slow today 😦 )


Also, to accomplish my most feared SIT UPS , today, I had to again split the 50 situps into 2 sets of 30 and 20…and I barely survived….

Here is today’s scary schedule:

The only upside today, is that I am exhausted & kind of drowsy at 9 pm ….Hopefully, this will help me hit the sack early & have my target 5:30 am early morning!!!!


Day 09!!!

Today was gruesome!


Well, to name a few:

  1. I did not wake up early as hoped and planned….thus the schedule for the full day went for a toss…as a result the workout was pushed to 6 in the evening!!!! 😦                                                                                2495
  2. The work out itself was tooo difficult… 45 sit ups!!! I had to break them down to 3 sets of 15 to get through!!!                                            images (7)
  3. I binged 😦  Its not like I follow any strict diet….I am just avoiding fatty, fried junk food….but today I just ended up eating all that and more…We had an impromptu plan of a family dinner at a nearby restaurant & the family ordered fried cheese sticks with noodles and rice…. & I did not resist 😦 I did feel the guilt but that was when I was half away through my plate 😦 ….I know …..Horrible!Clipart of a Hungry Asian Girl Binge Eating on Junk Food - Royalty Free Vector Illustration by BNP Design Studio


Anyway to sum up today’s work out…it was :

I warned you that it was gruesome!!!!

I just hope I learn from today and get better tomorrow…Cause let me give you a heads up…I just took a sneak peek at tomorrow’s workout schedule & it is worse than today’s!!!!

If you are reading this, do comment in & suggest how do I stick to a fixed schedule and how do I stay away from Junk food ( it ends up finding me! 😦

Thank you for reading 🙂


Day 07 & 08!!!!

No, no, no….I didn’t fall off the workout wagon….I just did not have access to the internet to post how painful day 07 was!!!! 😦

Firstly, I really need to start working out at a fixed time…On day 07, Saturday that is…I was home, chilling out with my brother after a looong time…So, I started my workout almost at noon….& I barely finished one set of the squats & I got a phone call & I had to rush to finish off an errand!By evening , I was lazzzzy & was dreading the workout…..But the embarrassment of falling off the routine motivated me to do the workout…& man, It was a torture!!!!! 😦  40 situps!!!!! (though , I did them in 2 sets of 20 each…but c’mon!!!!)

Oh…And the squats…As I had done one set of squats in the afternoon, I did think of doing just one set this time…but then I tried to challenge myself & do 2 sets..& I did pull it off 🙂

So, the horrible day 07 workout was:

I sure did sweat it out! But on a positive note, I survived one whole week!!! 🙂 I know its not a lot…but as they say, “Well begun is half done” I just hope I can stick to the plan & be able to have a weight loss success story 🙂 (Which by the way is the best fairy tale ever 🙂 )

Today , being a rest day , I am chilling out and at the same time,  mentally preparing myself for another tough week to come 🙂

Wish me luck and do keep reading & liking & commenting on my posts… cos that is the best motivation of all 🙂
