As promised, I am back today with another post of how my day went, with guilt punching me in the gut. Yeah, guilt. Why? Because my plan for a super healthy steamed/boiled/roasted chicken and salad for dinner got converted into a butter chicken masala with two wheat rotis. I loathe my self control.
The day started well. I had two toasts for breakfast after which I went to the gym after two whole days. Did I mention that even one leave throws me off my game. It sucks. I had a really hard time with all the exercising and I was so out of breath that the trainer took pity at me and left me in an hour.
What did I do today? Well, cross trainer and cycling for ten minutes each. After that, there’s this set of exercises that I’m asked to do almost 3 times a day which I did. First, he makes me climb the stairs outside the gym 10 times. then, dumbbell side bending, 20 each. Then skipping for some 50 times and then cross standing crunches, 20 each side. All I have to do after this is repeat this entire process 3 (4, if I’m up to it) times. Follow it up by side to side plies, 20×3 and then, something that is similar to the plies. What to do is hold onto a support, bend like you did in the previous exercise, but get up and life one of your leg to the side. Do this 20 times each side. And when you’re done 20 each side, repeat this entire thing 3 times. And then there was the lovely twister, which to be honest, it quite fun. After that, I did leg raise crunches on a bench press 20×3 times, and finally, some skipping.
In hindsight, it doesn’t seem much but honestly, I was almost in tears.
Anyways, I came home, had some water and then ORS. Had my lunch- 1 wheat roti, some lentils, cucumber, one bowl rice, yogurt, and potato, which is fine. After that, I had water, until about 6 when I had some soda (told you, I loathe myself) and some biscuit.
And then, my wonderful marinated steamed/boiled/roasted chicken fiasco happened, and here I am. Full to the brim and filled with regret.
But that’s what happens. I usually eat healthy, and as they say, one cheat meal doesn’t make you fat and one healthy meal doesn’t make you thin. I’ll work harder tomorrow and control myself.
Till then, adieu.
