In Retrospect
The slice of pizza for lunch was a bad idea. That slice cost me 5 points.I could have made so much better use of those 5 points, how about 3 points worth “a cup of jello and pudding” instead .Anyways,this weekend I did not put too much effort in planning for Mondays lunch,and that’s the price I paid.Todays kick boxing kicked-a$$.

A new beginning…

My last post was about two months back. Thats a shame. In that time my weight did go down to a 143 lbs only to be back up to 145lb to date. Blame the summer, the seafood eaten at the beach or those boxful of goodies mom sent from back home as a treat.

This morning I got up thinking whats done is done and I need to re-focus. Interestingly a few hrs later I read about Indiras workout vratham. Inspired I decided to join a bunch of other bloggers in this 2-week challenge. The challenge asks to follow the no-grain-diet.However the host ( or chief-inspiration) Kay was kind enough to allow me to pick my own plan.So I will be following the Weight Watchers guidelines.Everyday I will post a report of my day’s food and workout details.Day 1 of the challenge was July 18. I know I am 2 days late already. But its never too late for a new beginning….

My 2WC (2 week challenge) buddies will be
