  1. Awesome. I’m going to join you on this. I got married in December last and have been packing on the post-wedding-I-can-eat-anything-I-want pounds rather fast! Tried the 30 day ab challenge in May. Stopped after Day 8 😦 I’ve also joined Crush Fitness classes… they’re dance based intense workouts. Thrice a week! Quite similar to Zumba, but a tad more intense I would say. Let’s see how they work!


    1. Hi Sneha! So glad to hear from another soul out there who is getting back on the fitness bandwagon after getting married 🙂 What are your social media handles? I’ll follow you on them!
      About the 30 day ab challenge – why did you stop at day 8? I’m did Day 2 today, and found it fairly ok till now.
      I’ve also found an old Zumba workout DVD my mom used to have, and I’m trying to add that to my workout session this month. Where is Crush Fitness based?


      1. So I stopped because I got busy with work and was generally not creating time for it. Old, lame reason. I hope I stick to it this month! 😀 Restarting from tomorrow (will cheat and just start tomorrow as Day 3 instead of Day 1).

        Crush Fitness holds classes in gyms all over. It’s really fun! I attend the one in Vasant Kunj. Their classes are listed here –

  2. I had done the plank challenge for a month and it was murder on the last day at 4 minutes. I had to split it in 2 min twice. 😜
    I am doing the ab challenge too. I just bumped up the day 1 to 20 reps more because we work out anyways and we do more sit-ups and crunches daily as a norm.
    It’s not too bad. So ladies, don’t give up!


    1. Thanks for the idea 🙂 someone else suggested that if the last few days get too tough, I can split it into 2 sessions – one morning and one evening. I’m scared already of how tough it’s going to get! Well, one day at a time. Just going to focus on Day 3 right now 🙂


  3. I did the crunches for the first month but believe me I cannot take it more so I left. Though I enjoyed doing that and my diet also increased. So I increased my intake of green tea and maintained the balance well.


  4. Greetings from an avid follower….who has incidentally taken up blogging as a profession too and created a FREE bridal checklist {}

    I stuck to a 25-30 minutes sprint/jog routine 3-4 months before my wedding and it helped with inch loss even though I did not experience any significant weight loss. But I do remember the urge to exercise daily that would even get me out of the house at the ungodly hour of 10 o’clock at night. Run as fast you can for small distances and then walk/jog for longer laps and repeat this as long as you don’t feel exhausted. I feel I do better without constraints like challenges, classes or routines. I exercise when I please and soon it becomes a ritual you can not live without.


  5. Great post Shinjini.You inspired me with this post..I have been postponing my ‘daily exercising and eating healthy’ decision since long..I am almost going to the overweight category…Thanks for the post..


  6. ‘The fittest will survive!’
    I just believe in this theory that,s why instead of tight schedule I follow my fitness regime religiously. As I love to put little muscles I do more justice with plank and cross-body abs with weight lifting huge reps numbered set and some cruel self engineered cardio-yoga to exert my energy 😉 . In morning nothing can replace running. Mountain climbing and bouldering; my another favourite activities during whenever I get the opportunity, eh, don’t ask my bleeding why not in Delhi because you know very well fellas.
    Well I really loved your piece of information and been delighted, so keep the glass of zeal up and be fit and fabulous!
    All the best!
