It failed. Apparently, drastic changes are not sustainable. Its those baby steps you take every day that make drastic changes sustainable. I haven’t reach my goal but 4 kg lighter after the 30 day challenge.
So the idea is to make gradual changes. Like:
- Walk atleast 5000 Steps ( Based on s4)
- Ditch the Lift.
- Drink More water.
That is the small but concise plan this week and weeks to come. I’ll let you know how it works out.
First week has been hard. All that biryani and fried chicken is taking its toll. I have been eating fairly less and exercising more. Due to less food intake, the energy level is not at its best. But drastic situation requires drastic actions.
I have reduced 2 kgs in the first week. I intend to keep the rate consistent for next weeks. I have been letting the diet slip by a bit due to the weakness. But hopefully, I ll be better when I am occupied at work.
I’ll keep you people updated.
I sit on a computer and press buttons for a living. Urmm, Its a bit more complicated than that but lets no go there. The whole point being there is not much I do physically in a day. This has lead to a positive accumulation of calories and a rapid weight gain. To put things in perspective, I have gained 25 kgs in past 5 years.
Before shit hits the fan real time, I am going to be taking a series of steps to get back to the 5 year old level. I understand its not going to be easy and is going to require a lot of work. The good part is that I am motivated and determined as ever to see this one through. I’ll post a weekly update from here on what happened and how is it coming along.
Plan of action for First week:
1) Go for a walk : 5 days a week for 40 Minutes a day.
2) Eat sprouts for dinner 6 Days / Week.
3) Drink More water.
Lately, I have been involved in a lot of contemplation on where my life is going and what I want to do. Somewhere along the line I have developed a new fear. The fear of getting comfortable with what I have and getting stuck here. The fear of not learning more. The fearing of not living up to what I have set out for myself.
I am stuck in a rut at the moment. I go to work, I come back home & sleep. Rinse and repeat.
To go where I need to, I need to make time.
I’ll be sharing a lot of my plans and decision process in the coming days.
During the past few days, I have been pondering a lot about Happiness. A lot of questions came up which I really didn’t have answer for. They are as follows :
1) Is happiness something temporary or permanent ?
2) How do you know your happy ?
3) Is there a way you can measure happiness?
4) What makes one happy ?
5) Can you buy happiness ? If yes, for how much?
A lot of these questions are subjective and the answers may vary from person to person. Unfortunately, there might not be any concrete answers to these questions. But I’ll investigate and find out for sure.
