27 days

Monday and boy, was I glad to go back to work. Unfortunately, I also remembered that it was the office holiday luncheon. Fortunately however, it was at Bonefish grille. My spirits buoyed a bit. 

My vegetarianism always makes for interesting dinner conversations as people tuck into Filet mignon and salmon while I make do with pine nuts and greens that could not fill a bird’s stomach. I got placed square in front of the CEO and well, between my diet, mumbai, his trips to Italy, and Europe’s superior quality of fruits, and the January 20th inaugural, I survived the luncheon without feeling too sorry for myself. 

So my foods you ask? 

  1. 2nd glass of water 
  2. Coffee with 1% milk
  3. 3rd glass of water 
  4. Hazelnut coffee
  5. 1/4 cup of oatmeal 
  6. 4th glass of water 
  7. 1 small slice of freshly baked whole wheat bread 
  8. 1/4 plate of salad 
  9. 1/4 plate of spinach fettucine + mushrooms + tomato
  10. 1″ * 1″ * 1/4″  square piece of chocolate cake + melon and cantaloupe pieces
  11. 1 cup of desi chai 
  12. 5th glass of water 
  13. 1/2 cup of rice stick ‘upma’ (made by the divine cook yesterday) 
  14. 6th glass of water 
  15. 1 cup of rice + spinach daal + cabbage curry + yogurt 
  16. 7th glass of water 
  17. 8th glass of water 

Stopped at the library on the way, and picked up a few books. A few recommendations and then found Meera Nair on the table, so picked that up as well. I read her first short story on the bike. 20 minutes to wrap up ‘Video’ – it’s actually quite nice 🙂 

Went to the gym after and instead of the Monday pool, I stayed upstairs. Biked at level 5 for 20 minutes, covering 2.56 miles. Elliptical at level 2 for 10 minutes for 1.34 miles and I actually sweated!! Yay! Finally!  

Cybex Machine Weights – 

  • Leg Press – 80 lbs 
  • Leg Curl – 50 lbs 
  • Abdominal – 50 lbs 
  • Torso Rotation – 40 lbs 
  • Hip Abduction – 70 lbs 
  • Hip Adduction – 80 lbs 
  • Chest Press – 50 lbs 
  • Overhead Press – 40 lbs 
  • Fly/Rear Delt – 40 bs 

10 reps – twice or thrice depending. It takes close to 50 minutes to an hour for the whole round to finish. 

Tomorrow will be weigh-in, and it will be a miracle if I haven’t added on what I’ve lost. This is one time when one can actually feel sorry that they’ve gotten back that was thought lost. Forever.
