The results are out...

Measurement time at the gym. It's like an exam that I want to put away, always.
I've lost some weight I know ... but they have something called the 'body composition analysis' which tells you whether you're losing weight the right way.

So well.. I was okay on the weight loss front but along with the fat I've lost muscle mass ... not good at all. It's inevitable, say gym veterans. But I'm not too happy.. I really need to do this the proper, healthy way. So no more climbing mindlessly on that treadmill/cycle and staying there for ever. Less cardio more weights, pronounced the trainer. More proteins in my diet too. Soy Milk.. yuk plus I HATE weights.

Bone density is down too.. another no no... Calcium supplements on the way.

And the final verdict.. my metabolic age is 50 years... yikes. I need to get younger. But that's the best part.. you can get younger... yay.

Last word: I'm behind my November target by a few 100 gms. Hope to make it up this month. Walk walk walk. .. eat right, eat right, eat right.

Last last word: Made laddoos today, Naisha's farmaish. Imagine spending an hour rolling that ghee-sugar-steeped mixture into laddoos and NOT popping a single one in your mouth. Nope that's not what I did... I did not 'not pop'.

PS: Can't get the 'Kolaveri' song out of my head. Heard it anyone?


  1. yay! every loss counts! :) I'm just postponing n postponing while the kilos keep piling up.. i am scared to look at my own pics these days.
    n Kolaveri is damn addictive.. can't get it out of my head too

  2. WOWWO.. tusin great hon.. Excellent and all the best with evetrything
    i cant do this getting younger business I have given up :)


  3. @MM: Lolz.. it can't be that bad.
    @Bikram: Hey.. don't give up I need young friends around to keep me going :-D

  4. Hey that's so brilliant.. great going!! The protein/weights/calcium is a pain but worth getting into a schedule early i guess so don't let it get you down. I'm still so behind on my fitness schedule it's not worth mentioning anymore :(.

    Kolaveri -- was humming all of yesterday, was just on a break today and now you've reminded me - my household is not going to thank you ;) !

  5. @Aparna: Thank you Thank you *Takes a bow*. On Kolaveri.. I've got the entire household humming it.

  6. proteins- eat a lot of pulses for breakfast. a bowl full of usal (maharashtrian sabji made from pulses) will also do the trick. It helped us a lot when the Boy and I were on a 'diet'. That's quoted because, we did not really eat less, on the contrary we did more, but we ate the right things. And it made a difference. So go girl. Two-three months of eating the right food and you'll happily post about how wonderful u feel. trust me :)

  7. @~G: Getting to the sprouts. Must check out the usal recipe, thanks.

  8. The kolaveri does sound good. Infact, very good. But is it as good as the kind of attention it is getting?

    Listened to it a few times, but that's about it.

  9. We're still enjoying it.. the songs not much but love the beats.


Glad to have you here. It's your turn to share your thoughts...
