47 days


  1. Coffee, 1% milk, 1/2 spoon of sugar
  2. Oatmeal with banana
  3. 1st glass of water
  4. 2nd glass of water
  5. 3rd glass of water

  7. 4th glass of water
  8. 5th glass of water
  9. Salad – lettuce, tomato, cucumber with light catalina dressing
  10. 6th glass of water
  11. Pear
  12. Raspberry Spark Tea
  13. 1 bagel bite (I couldn’t resist after baking ’em for the kids. :|)
  14. Coffee, 1% milk, 1/2 spoon sugar
  15. 7th glass of water
  16. Clementine
  17. 1 cup of rice, 2 large scoops of curry, and a big bowl of yogurt.

Came home with a bit of a headache. Restored iPhone contacts that I lost on updating. Felt better. Made pasta and bagel bites for snack, started rice, chopped cabbage for curry, packed munchkin to neighbor’s for play, and drove to the local gym in crazy traffic that took 15 mts for a 2 mile stretch.

Got a 25 visit to the gym card. Get a call saying daughter needs to be dropped off earlier at carpool at 6. Have 20 minutes sparing. Did 10 minutes of stationary bike (1.5 miles at level 5), 2 sets of ab torso machine weights of 30 lbs, 2 sets of leg press and had to leave. Picked up daughter, dropped her, came home again, started sambar, and cabbage curry with soya beans. Did the regular 4 sets of abs, 1 set of 10 reps of knee/leg stretches.

Tuesday nights will be weigh-ins. O joy.

Very sleepy and it’s only 9 pm. Must be all that excitement from last evening. Couldn’t sleep till 2ish or so, thinking happy, mixed and contrastingly confusing thoughts on different folks creating ripples in my recent two weeks.

    Dear R,
    Please don’t hate me, but may I please share one little thing with you ? Please don’t cut out carbs – they are an essential portion of our meals. Just make sure you keep the carb portions small (one slice of bread in the morning, one chappati at night) and that you cut of *refined* flours and *refined* sugar. So whole wheat bread only (husks included). Try brown rice instead of polished white rice. A diet without carbs tends to be higher in protien and a high protien diet has its own problems. You may also start feeling really drained (low blood sugar).
    Also, I found snacking at regular intervals better at controlling hunger. Yogurt and fruit, hummus and saltines, low fat cheese, vegetables and low fat dip, fresh fruit etc are great snacks. I ate every three ish hours and never felt *hungy* hungry. For a sweet toothed person like me, the hardest part was cutting out desserts ! 🙂

    Good Luck. I hope you reach your goal soon.

  2. Have you tried Yoga? Emptying the mind as you go to sleep, makes you fall asleep faster. Heck you fall asleep wherever you are, whenever you empty your mind. Works most effectively in front of the computer at work.
