Sheena runs Mogra Designs, one of my favourite online boutique stores. I have never thought of her as someone who was overweight, so I was surprised when I saw her post on Facebook talking about how she had reached an unhealthy size and had struggled to come back to her ideal weight. As I read through her weight loss journey, I realised she had gradually lost 10 kgs in 5 months the “right” way. She had found what form of workout she enjoyed, figured out what eating habits suited her body and not pressurised herself into losing it all too quickly. This was exactly the kind of fitness routine I wish everyone followed, especially brides to be! I have never believed in quick-fix methods and crash diets, and Sheena’s story was precisely the kind I am always looking for to share with my brides. Here are ALL the details of her 5 month journey, straight from Sheena’s keyboard 🙂
I decided this March to get back on the fitness bandwagon. From trying different forms of working out, to exploring Clean Eating options in my city – I’m going to be sharing progress updates on every front, every month. Including the inevitable struggles that come along with getting back into shape after letting go of yourself for 2 years.
In this update, I share my experience using the Apple Watch for fitness, cold-pressed juices in Delhi and the 30 Day Abs Workout Challenge all your friends are taking on.
3 years ago, my wedding date was decided. I had 8 months, to be the fittest bride I could possibly be. I began yoga classes for the first time in my life, and started eating healthy. I still gorged on cakes, but I also had more home food and completely gave up potato chips and aerated drinks. Over the first year of my married life, I slowly began to let go of all my healthy practices. I won’t go into details of the past here, mainly because you can just read about the struggles in old Fitness posts. Thankfully, we are not trees. If we don’t like where we are, we can move. We are not trees. And so I’d like to move. Get back onto the fitness bandwagon. Feel full of energy and strong again. This is the chronicling of that journey. It’s far from perfect, but that’s what change is – it’s hard, and it’s messy. And since a lot of you will be getting married in a few months time, this might help you out – as I’m starting from scratch again. Brides of 2015, welcome to my first fitness update where I started working out again after a gap of almost 2 years.
