And it’s time for the second milestone already. I had a fairly disciplined fitness and healthy eating regime during the first half of this month. In the second half, my mother had an injury at home and the doctor had to put a cast on her hand for 6 weeks. Since my routine went for a toss, I had a difficult time adjusting to the new one which involved managing house and office work together. I ended up missing few days of my workouts, couldn’t manage a consistent running schedule and had a multiple stress eating incidents. I’m slowly adjusting myself to the new routine and planning to bounce back on track, stronger than ever.
Here are my achievements for this month :-
Starting weight (10th August) : 62.9 kgs
Milestone 1 (31st August) : 62.5 kgs (Lost 0.4 kgs)
Milestone 2 (1st October) : 61.4 kgs (Lost 1.1 kgs)
I was regular on most days. On the days I had to go to office, I made sure to wake up early and rope skip. I started with 500 rounds and gradually increased it to 1000 by the end of the month. It helped me clear my mind and gave a great endorphin boost at the start of the day. However, I did miss 4/5 days of workouts after my mother’s injury. Overall, I’m pretty happy with my workout progress.
I haven’t meditated even once in the past month. I plan on meditating for at least 10 mins right after I wake up so that I don’t procrastinate it throughout the day. This is my goal for October.
This month has been tumultuous when it comes to my food habits. I stress ate on many occasions and indulged in a lot of junk food. My water intake hasn’t been up to the mark. I plan on improving it in October
Key achievements :
- Ran twice outdoors, 6 kms in 44 mins on 6th September and 10 kms in 1.14.06 hrs on 13th September.
Goals for Milestone 3 (31st October):-
- Workout 6 days a week
- No refined sugar
- No cheat meals (Fried, processed food)
- Rope skip every evening at least 500 times
- Attempt 10 push ups
- Run at 10 kms every Sunday
- Meditate for 10 mins every morning right after waking up
See you until the next milestone!!
