Two updates

The two current worries of my life — the darned fancy dress and my weightloss — seem to have sorted themselves out.

First the fancy dress.. the decision has been made — Queen of Hearts for Naisha (Yesssss!), Incy Wincy spider for Hrit.
Naisha is a real surprise. She’s a great story teller so I tried to sell her the idea of just narrating the story in the rhyme rather than mugging it up and says she, “No mama I’ll learn the rhyme.. look I already know half. Then she proceeded to rattle off  “The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts….” Women I tell you.. most unpredictable. What’s more she has also prepared herself to tell the story if she forgets the rhyme. That’s one kid sorted. SIGH!

Hrit was a no brainer.. anything black and scary and he’s happy.. so a spider he is.

Somehow the task of putting the costumes together seem so much easier than arriving at a decision that makes the kids and me happy.

Now for the weightloss…
BOREDOM ALERT: If you’re not a compulsive fat fighter stop now.

If you are one read on…
Actually, I’m not even sure I should be happy about this one but I am. I did my BCA (body composition analysis) at the gym today. And the results…

The good first.. (me being a wannabe optimist)
— muscle mass has increased
— BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) has increased.

Isn’t that wonderful?

On the flip side
— Weight up by 2 kgs
— Water content down (I need to drink more water. At least 4 ltrs says the instructor. When I started at him incredulously and asked, “Do even you ever drink 4 ltrs?” He replied with a deadpan face, “I drink 8.” So much for being a smart alec).
— Fat percentage up too.

The net result is what the instructor had pointed out earlier… exercise regimen is perfect but the diet….hmmmm.

However, for now, I can’t look beyond the BMR and I am pretty kicked. All I have to do is eat sensibly and all will be well. How tough can that be? I’ve done it before. So two kgs by Spetember end.

  1. OM! My dietician gave me Do's & Do Nots before I started the dieting and she shares a daily plan with me and you what is written in each of those plans in bold? NO SOUP & CURD at night 🙁

    And dear ensure that u have your dinner before 8:30 pm. It makes a hell lot of difference.

  2. @Haddock.. I've vowed to work on the diet this month.

    Smita.. Thanks for the tip. Am sticking with soup and salad for dinner. Unfortunately our gym doesn't have a proper dietician so we kind of blunder along.
    Oh and you did read the second part so you're a weight watcher too. *High five*

  3. Wah! Chalo she was happily and readily convinced!!

    Pass on good luck from my end to both of them 🙂

    Tell me something, do u have cold? Because my dietician tells me that coz of cold there is water retention, also to reduce the same u shud avoid eating leafy vegetables at night.

    I am sure you are on right track and the weight too will fall, it is a matter of time 🙂

  • Big Little Lies #TeaserTuesday
    I started reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty yesterday and it kept me awake till past midnight, till my eyes closed and I crashed on the bed without removing the covers. That, dear friends, never happens to me, no matter how tired I am, and on a school night too, when I had to […]
