Okay.. so blogging every day is not something I can commit too yet… I have WAY too much on the go .. ALL THE TIME. So it’s not a COMPLETE surprise when I haven’t blogged about all the food I ate and how I fared with week. So I decided that I would at least do a round-up of the week.
I will talk about the 4F’s – Food, Fitness, fulfillment and Failure… (isn’t it genius? .. ok fine.. I’m in Marketing.. it reminded me of the 4P’s BOO SUE ME!)
Okay so without further waiting… (or lame jokes..)
This is a collection of the FOOD I was eating this week..
Lunch on Friday afternoon
I have to confess though that the last weekend was REALLY bad in terms of food choices.. What is not pictured above is the biryani I had that night… or the waffles and second round of biryani I had on Saturday morning… followed by barbecued chicken for lunch and ending in a seafood stew for dinner with friends.
Again not pictured here are the indian appetizers I had at the wedding I attended followed by a lunch of butter chicken and vegetable jhafrazi and other yummy indian menu items that have the work paneer and makhni.. hardly words that scream HEALTHY to you.
In all of this I tried to maintain oatmeal in the morning. I think that’s what has really stopped me from over eating on all this rich food that I have been consuming. One thin I paid attention to is my fullness level. When I was feeling like I could eat a little more.. I stopped. Because on a regular day… I would have continued to eat. LOL.
Last night I had an old friend come over to do some catching up and wedding planning and we snaked – I think the whole ordeal was pretty healthy… I had to add the cupcakes though… it doesn’t feel like a catch up session without little cuppies!
Guacamole with crackers, mini cuppies and green tea <3
Last night I ended up making lunches ahead so that I would not be forced or tempted into buying something to eat from work.. So I grilled some chicken and had some sautéed veggies to go along with it. Mind you I have given up Coke… and I have been really trying to cut out the coffee.. It’s only been a week since I have my breakdown about priorities and how unhappy I am with the way that I have treated myself. It will take some time, and I would rather that it take it’s time then be a one time thing.
The FITNESS aspect, is not my forte. I hate cardio workouts. I feel really self-conscious. I don’t like looking at myself in the mirror doing that kind of thing.
I hate to sweat. so naturally, I took up HOT YOGA.
I know. The irony. I loved it. the feeling of releasing tension is just amazing. I highly recommend it. I think that this is something I could incorporate into my life.. if only it was a cheaper form of exercise.
Because I am not a fitness junky.. I have nothing else for you.
FULFILLMENT came in the form of getting on the scale and seeing that I had dropped 2LB in a week! WHAT! I realize that this is probably water weight… but I don’t care! I did drop that weight.. and no one can take it away from me other than….. me.. -_-’
You see, this is where FAILURE comes in… I started Yoga(YAY).. but I’ve only made it in ONCE this week! WHAT?? EFF. I could do so much better than this.. I know it… but for some reason I could not for the life of me get up early enough to go any other day this week. I hope I can change this starting tomorrow.
Anyways peeps… that’s what has been going down.
Thanks for keeping me in check
