Jillian and I

Hello world!

I have been a little lost lately. With everyday chores, a hyperactive baby and guests coming in town, my sudden motivation to lose weight took a back seat. However I’m back on track since yesterday.

Today was day 2 for Jillian Micheal’s 30 day shred. I managed to do it on 2 consecutive days though I really had to push myself into it after the ordeal of yesterday. But I persevered. (Feeling very proud of myself).

I have never been able to do push-ups the way they are supposed to be done. Yesterday I asked my husband to check where I was going wrong. Voila! Apparently you are supposed to use your arms to go up and down and I was trying to use my torso. No wonder I was failing so miserably.

I wish they would stop putting such cheery girls at the back who do every freaking move with a big smile plastered on their face. It is super annoying. Also, these are probably the only videos on YouTube where the ads interrupting the video is welcomed gleefully. Ha!

For some reason, this time around, I am finding it excessively difficult to eat clean or even control my portion size. However, I shall keep trying. Mind over matter, as they say.

Keeping strong! My goal is to have a before and after picture. From fat to fit! Fingers crossed.
