Fresh fruits, workout, main meal.. All set for the day
So many thanks for your lovely comments on my yesterday’s post. It is 1 PM here. Huhh!! Time difference! I will be able to catch up mostly at this time . Anyways, I told you about my story yesterday. I have one more story to tell. That of my partner
Some years back, he use to be a spoiled kid in America, who use to thrive on junk, multi cuisines, beer and more beer. Not to mention that such a lifestyle became strikingly visible on his tummy . But thankfully, one odd day, he realized that I will have to improve my lifestyle. This happened two years back. Consequently, he cut out drinking, joined a gym, started running and started cooking at home.
There is more to the story
In a 2 years time, he has made a tremendous change in the way his body looks and feels. But you know these vices(drinks and foods and make merry) are not that easy to leave behind. Agree? So he never could actually completely leave them behind. Although he never left running. Infact, he loves it so much that he explores a new hiking or biking trail for us, every weekend. That is the way we are doing our honeymoon. We both are loving it actually .
Back to his story, after initial lifestyle changes he lost weight but then after a certain time, he reached a plateau and he became a victim of yo yo-ing weight. When we met, he was into gym workouts and was highly fed up with them and wanted to try something new. He was someone who use to measure his weight daily first thing in the morning. I mean imagine, I use to come out of the bathroom rubbing my eyes, to see my husband doing something that I find disgusting! i.e: standing on the weighing machine and telling me it is 3 pounds more from yesterday. May be it is because of the sandwich that I ate yesterday. And then he would ask me what do you say baby .. *frown*
Anyways, that’s 1 week past now. No more gym for him. He wakes me up early morning, for running in the park. He does a yoga class in the evening after office. And is willing to try crossfit and mixed martial arts soon *fingers crossed* . And we both cook fresh meals together. It hardly takes half an hour. And is such a stress buster too
Today morning, when we were returning home after running. He said that imagine my life was so different 2 months back. I use to spend atleast 2 days in the bar and eat out in an ethopian, chinese, thai or european restaurant twice or thrice a week but now I cook fresh food at home. I eat a lot of fruits daily. I do different types of workout and I plan holidays in nature over weekends. He sounded elated.
Though I wonder whether he was actually happy or sad when he said that .
Anyways, today we woke up had a glass of luke warm water, had fresh fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blueberries) and then we headed for running. We took a water bottle to the park to stay hydrated while running. After coming back, we had a spoon of fresh raw honey and then we started to get ready for the day. After about 15-20 mins we had our breakfast: Vegetable sandwitch (Olives, tomato, onion, cauliflower) with toasted wheat bread and peanut butter. Peanut butter is a good source of proteins. I use the very basic peanut butter which is chunky and has no additives.
Rest of the day we will keep eating something every 2 hours, something fresh and nutritious For me that is it for a fit today how was your day?
