day 84

posted my latest pic today. look a lot different than my starting pic, can't bear to look at that pic again. want to 150% effort in last 7 days. End on a high . there is a belief i read that it takes 21 days for a habit to form , being on this diet for almost 95% of the time in the last 84 days means the habit is deeply entrenched. im sure this vegetables habit , the constant fruit habit , the no carbs at dinner habit and most importantly the excersise bit and now too deeply in my system to let go. my sense is that this will now be a part of my life and its not gonna go out of my system very soon. when I began I was constantly tierd , dull and naturally not very happy with with my physical condition. Now I'm much more active & energetic , I generally stay in a better mood and eating healthy has made me feel lighter and more confident. The fact that I can now wear clothes which fit me better is a bonus. Let's go full steam on the last few days . cheers guys


76

whew what a day it was today , got in early from office but didn't really feel like going to the gym for the workout.. some how dragged my ass to the gym and then thought I'll just do the cardio session and leave it but you know what that's the fun thing with excersises the motivation comes while doing it and one can push oneself quite a bit. I must confess I just couldn't do the 2nd last workout.. the twisted captains chair bit but I did all the sets on the raised triceps bit .. boy was that tough or what.. I was really out but it was fun.. then that 6 sets metronome was another killer. stomach was burning by the end of it. Got some good pains in the body for the massage guy tomorrow morning.
All the best guys


day 74

it's mango season out here in India and the fruit basket looks really tempting every day. a couple if slices of mangoes really brightens up any fruit meal. So carbs aren't missed at all as long as water melons and mangoes are around. I just hope this isn't a blooper though and these fruits are ok in AMYW. That aside i am finding some of the work outs just outta my league. the raised push up . the twisted captains chair.. these excersises are just too tough .. so I just do what's possible. Any advice Patrick???


Day 72

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement. Last week was a washout in terms of working out. I could feel the laxity in my body and I just wanted to get up and do something but that damn inertia is something really tough. The travel to Goa and conference didnt help much though I wanted to use the trip to get back in action. I think the only positive was the skipping of the liquor and broadly managing the food quantities and ingredients. Last 2 days have both been fairly on track. The failure happens pretty fast though , but I'm not worrying as I will be better as the week progresses. I want to finish on a high so that the entire journey becomes well worth it. So many questions to answer but I will say the easier part was maintenance of the diet and the tougher part was some of the work outs. I tended to skip them if they were too tough. Another highlight if the entire journey was the blogging which kept my spirit up whenever one felt down. Look forward to a strong finish from all.


hi guys

feeling much better and will be back in action tomorrow. Same time flying off to Goa for two days will be able to do at least my cardio till Saturday since it's a resort and I'm attending an off-site meeting then Sunday will try out the full workout. Also tomorrow I will put up my latest picsbehind by a week I think


fever

down with fever & flu .. feeling miserable unable to workout


Hi Friends

Here we all are ..30 more days to go my last 3 days were tough on the body and I struggle thru the workouts but still finished , missed working out yesterday but was able to finish the skipping at least getting the hang of it now. Energy wise I couldn't be better and I feel much more energetic than what I can recall for last several years. The pain in the workouts doesn't bother me that much anymore & when I do wince a bit about going to the gym it's generally about 3 straight days of workout the 4th day is tough on mind bit of rest is needed I think.
But I'm happy I stuck to it till now.
3 Days ago
I was a bit off mentally when the weighing scale went up back to 76,5 and I was a little upset for not pushing myself harder then today I saw a 75.3 to make my day I look forward to to moving ahead faster.

55

Yesterday I needed to take all my belts to the local cobbler to add a few more holes , was looking forward to it for so many years & finally got to do it. My daughter Fiza is back home and starts her new job on Monday , got compliments from her for looking slimmer , couldn't have felt better. "Dad I need to to begin something to get my health on track" words I thought I'd never hear.. all in all a good week. Weight is now 75 kilos.. Ciao.


hi

Back from Mumbai after a boring conference, though the highlight was my nocturnal activity. So here's what happened.. I arrive in Mumbai on Sunday night and while driving to my accommodation.. I see a complete mela on the roads , restaurants, street vendors, sweet shops , what have you !! suddenly my radar picks up the most amazing signals. I dump my luggage and ask the taxi to take me back to the market to enjoy the sounds and sights of a Ramazan night market. I stroll around in the market peeking and smelling the most amazing of stuff being sold to the fast breakers.. I tasted some Haleem and a bit of Kebab thinking a bite or two wont matter. I'm pretty sure that's ok.
So now I'm back from my adventures in Mumbai and putting my head down for last 40 days


Day 48 ends

All on track guys , off to Mumbai tomorrow will do the off / rest day on Monday and normal work out tomorrow if possible. ciao


day 45 ends

Tonnes of work, late night presentations and travel combined with a general dissonance in my mind about my progress led to my dropping off a few days. Somehow in my mind the fear that I had another 50 days to go with that energy sapping skipping routine and the fact that had made some decent progress , made my mind play games telling me I had done enough. Two days back that's day 43 I tried and went back to the routine thinking so happily that now the 1600 skipping was over and now two minutes skipping routine would be much easier. Guess what this one's even tougher and my calves oh God they hurt even now and I was again back to square one.
BREAKOUT day was day 45 that's today. I did half the skipping and the balance a very brisk walk for which took my heart rate to 157 , hopefully that's covers the cardio. I did the balance part of the workout and here I am writing to you guys.
I'm telling you all a big "thank you" since one of the main reasons I'm not quitting is due to the team, and the other reason is that I went back and read all my earlier posts to remind myself why I'm doing this. I wanted to set a good example to my girl who's coming back home on the 19th after finishing college. The wonderful news I can share is that she landed her first job as a content writer and media manager in a digital marketing company based here in Chennai called " TING" . The fact she an stay with us and take her jump in the career of her choice in front of us is the best news in a decade for us both.
So signing of day 45 with a big .


42

Ironically I'm very deep down in that valley, just too tired and sore from the skipping. Needed a break , the food isn't the issue I'm basically on that part just fine mostly uts just the workouts giving me pain. I'm glad I LOGGED in today read all the blogs of my team mates and then something in my mind told me not to give up at this.. so I'm pulling myself up bit by bit and should be fine soon. ciao


day 40

Another 50 days to go.. my arms and legs are sore like hell , food wise I'm fine but the skipping 1300 rounds .. is killing when will this come down a bit
positive side .. a colleague at office commented on my weight loss and stomach bulge seems to have come down quite a bit ... real nice
