Plank it up

Being a freelancer, I just realized that I need to take some time out for my health. Health being totally neglected was also one of the reasons for me diving into being a freelancer. Working in the corporates for 7 years, I realized that my core muscles had completely gone for a toss. I started walking and jogging to start off with but soon understood that my core muscles were giving up even though my stamina increased.

I did some research online to find out that plank is one of the best exercises one can do for your core as it builds strength to help sculpt your waistline and improve your posture. The reason why I got more inclined towards it was because the form is very straightforward. I also realized that it works for your hamstrings, supports proper posture, and improves balance.

Even though the form is straightforward, holding the position for long takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and core. I understood in my first few tries that I will have to do it regularly to stay in the position for more than a minute. With the little experience I have got while doing it, your goal should be to hold it for two minutes.

Health Comes First

With the increasing competition and changes in lifestyle, the level of stress in individuals is increasing drastically. Yet we move on with the same velocity every morning when we wake up. But there are times when the body gives up and signals you to take a break. These warnings may come in any form – high/low Sugar, high/low Blood Pressure, Cold and Flu, Acidity, Gastric Problems, Headaches, Dehydration, etc, etc.
And the immediate next step we take is RUN TO A DOCTOR. But what if the Clinic is far from your home or if the Doctor is not available or anything unexpected happens?

Avoid the elevator

Have you ever tried doing this? When I did this for the first time, I felt short of breath (phewwwww)

And since then I felt the need to start doing it on a regular basis. I stay in a 7 storey building and use the stairs till the 4th floor as of now.

I am also going to follow this when I go to Shopping malls or any other place where I can avoid the Elevator.

Do try this and make it a habit 🙂

All the best 😉

Better late than never

It was not too late when I realised I had to stop thinking and start doing something about my fitness.

So here’s my story..

I have left my corporate job since a couple of months now. Over these months, I have been involved into things which I always wanted to do. And during this course, I ended up eating junk food, not JUST junk food, but a LOT of it. On top of that, public transport changed to private; so neither reaching late to work nor running to catch a bus, rik or a train worried me anymore.

And just then, I went shopping for a dress I had to wear to my best friend’s wedding and I realized, I was not fitting into dresses of my regular size.

I gave a thought over it and started feeling the need to get back in shape.

Here is what I started doing since the last 3 days to be precise:

1) Walking at least 10,000 steps

2) Tea/Coffee are OFF the List (I was never a big fan of these, but I used to end up eating 8-10 biscuits at one go with my tea)

3) Replaced Milk Tea with Green Tea

4) Sweet Cravings 🙁 (Stopped eating sweets, chocolates, cakes and pastries)

 

This is it so far. Well it’s been only 3 days and today was the 4th day.

My only goal as of now is to get back to the size I was <3

I have made a few changes in my eating habits as well. I am going to talk about it in my next post.

This post is for myself as well as all those people out there who feel the need to be fit.

Better late than never.
