I had wanted to write a post on fitness but the only thing that stopped me from actually doing it, was me. I had wanted to see significant changes but then here I am, after 3 months of regularly (almost) exercising and eating right (a little), making this post go live! 

Since most of you know that I have a full time day job which functions in a typical 9-9 format, I have struggled to maintain my weight, keep fit and combat fatigue and laziness. I know the struggle working girls face hence I won’t make this post sound like it’s easy and that you need to get up and just do it maybe because it takes a lot more than that. I have been lucky to meet colleagues at work who are fitness conscious. When you have people around you who talk a lot about gym, fitness routines, waking up early, then one can actually get inspired. At least that’s what happened in my case. I have had phases of losing weight and being 55 kilos (that’s my personal best) but now I am going to turn 24, my energy levels are affected with the kind of lifestyle I lead and yes my super busy job drains me mentally that sometimes makes me feel like a 30 year old. But having said that, fitness is about challenging your own limits and hey, by challenging I nowhere mean that you need to overdo things,  or starve or opt for unhealthy options because let’s just face it, these techniques don’t even last for more than a week. 


So coming back to my fitness journey, I started out by enrolling myself in Zumba classes after work. My classes happened 3 times in a week and started around 7 ish till 8, 8:30 pm. I have to admit that the Zumba classes laid a foundation to my fitness journey and they were a lot fun! So here’s a little tip for anyone who wants to start out, if you can’t gym or don’t like the idea of running and regular forms of exercise then enroll yourself in fun classes like zumba, pilates, bhangra, bollywood dancing or more. If you can’t find any of these close to your place of stay but if you have a good internet connection then you can do Zumba at home by following Suchita Pal’s YouTube channel here. It works because I have done zumba at home referring to this. I spent one month of doing Zumba and I tried my best not to skip a single class even if that meant walking in late and doing something at least. 


So while I was doing zumba, I watched my eating habits. This included me cutting down on chai and coffee breaks at work and from consuming 3-4 cups of machine coffee/chai, I came down to one. This also meant that I integrated more liquids and water in my routine.  Even till date I consume about 3-4 bottles of water at work which is close to 4 liters. My Zumba class ended at around 8:30 pm and I would have to drive myself every day. My body would be sore and drained but I kept pushing myself and would reach home to consume dinner that consisted of one Roti, vegetables, dal and curd. At times, I would trade my dinner with milk and cornflakes and fruits. Honestly, I didn’t drop any significant weight; it was only in my second month when I saw some changes happen. I could see my collar bones looking more stark and that was some motivation in the initial days. 

I joined aerobics classes in the morning that requires me to wake up at 6:30 am every day. Now that you know I had enrolled myself in Zumba classes, aerobics was an add on every morning and a rigorous attempt to lose weight quickly. I did two classes everyday (with zumba being 3 times a week) and would drive to work all tired and worn out. I continued doing this for a month but then I realized that it was draining me too much and because my mind and body were tired always, I didn’t even see great results in my body. I had to make a decision and that’s when I decided to quit Zumba classes (it would get very late after work) :( :(


In my third and current month, I am continuing with my morning classes (which I tend to skip 1-2 times in a week) and I am not indulging in too much junk, I eat at Subway ALOT. I am watching what I am eating and I can happily share that I have lost 4 kilos ever since I started out. The progress is slow but I am getting there...


This is my fitness update, more from a workout perspective. Do share your comments in case you have any queries or if you would like me to do a detailed post on my everyday diet and cheat meal plans :)
