Welcome to the second entry in my fitness journal. This week was a little low on workouts and high on eating out because we went out for a staycation (will be writing about that soon). Still the results this week weren’t as bad as I was expecting.
Monday, 22nd May
Ate sabudana khichdi for breakfast and a cup of tea. Did an equipment free upper body workout. Managed to burn 200 calories with this one.
Tuesday, 23rd May
Did a challenging cardio workout for 34 minutes which included a few lower body exercises. It is a good practice to do a cardio and exercise routine. This is because the cardio keeps your heart rate high and burns fat and the exercises help in toning. All the jumping around does burn a lot of calories.

Rest day. If you are skipping a workout, make sure you watch your diet.
Thursday, 25th May
We celebrated our marriage anniversary on this day. I went for a 20 mins walk with the baby. We got dinner from a restaurant. And of course a slice of cake. My calories consumption went way above 2000.
Friday, 26th May
Had peanut butter toast with salted broccoli and beans. This, according to me, is a complete breakfast because it has proteins, carbohydrates and fiber. Broccoli is loaded with Vitamin C, B6, A ,Potassium and fiber. Ayu was his crankiest self, so I couldn’t manage to workout.
Saturday, 27th May
Steel cut oats upma for breakfast, Bombay toasted sandwiches for lunch and Spaghetti for dinner. Spent the day out celebrating our anniversary and it was such a great change in routine.
So, I managed to lose 0.2 kg (0.4 pound).
I was expecting that I would gain weight, but this came as a surprise. I promise to put in a lot of effort in the coming week.
