I feel ya, woman!

There is a good hair day and there is a bad hair day… and then, there is a FUCKALL hair day and that’s what I go through daily unless I make an effort to style it. God forbid the auto rides. This happens

When we get out of the auto and face the heat in Delhi. Shit happens.

Ok. Exagerration, it’s not that bad also. I just found this comparison hilarious, saw it on the internet somewhere. Not with GIFs though. GIFs add to the hilarity somehow :p

 

My life is a series of feeling-fat days too. Hence, “I have no clothes!!”

Now, “I have no clothes” does not mean I have no items of clothing in my closet. Duh! It means, “I have no clothes to wear today because my tummy seems to be bloated for some reason I can’t fathom (Oh I have been having pasta since two days), my thighs are acting cute too and my arms are challenging Sunny Deol for arm wrestling. Well, whatever, nevermind.

So, I have parked my ass in front of this machine so that I can google some effective workout challenges to do daily and get back in shape.

Note to self : DO NOT MISS THE GYM 

I think I have to be accountable. I have to report somewhere daily. I cannot do that to my weighing scale, I look at it, give it a dirty smile and just walk towards the kitchen. Not-cool-girl.

So, let’s step on that most ignored in the world machine called the weighing scale, today. Snap the current weight and keep doing that at regular intervals to note the progress.

On a serious note, I want to get in shape – not for anybody else but me. I feel happier when I can carry off any outfit with aplomb and not when I try to hide the flab. I am in awe of women who do that with confidence, but I – for the life of me – haven’t been able to do that, so why not lose it? If it makes you feel good, you look good. You radiate how you are feeling. As for me, I feel better when I feel fit. Don’t judge me to be “all about the looks”, no – evil is still evil. But – fitness of the mind, body and soul is of the utmost importance and you just cannot slack on that.

In the end, I just want to confess that I am a nicer person to be around when I am looking nice. Whatever that means now.

Snapped yesterday by my darling friend Sonal @ Khan Market, New Delhi – we had a fun pasta date and a lot of girl-talkin 😉 I have posted this image to compare it with the ones I will post subsequently. I am excited.

 

Mission : Miss Elle

SCHOOL REUNION (1 of 1)-1
7th August, 2015 – Before leaving for a reunion with my school friends

 

Okay! So this picture was clicked ten months ago and I have not worn this dress after that. Why? It’s a nice dress, I got it from Elle (at some discount) because I fell in love with the color and the adorable hemline. Well, I did not wear it because I ate too many pizzas, and too much of pasta…add to that chocolates and fries. Basically, I lost the plot :p And of course I skipped the gym assuming kuch nahin hoga. Well, turns out kaafi kuch ho gaya.

So, it’s 1st of June 2017 now and I am on a mission. In exactly two months from today – I will wear this dress. No matter what. Ok, to be honest – there is not a lot that I have to do to wear it..but a lot that I have to feel to wear it again. I need to be confident about it. That’s more important. I am not very worried about the weight, but my attitude towards it is what’s bothering me. I need to work out without getting worked up. Things take time, one has to be patient for results. Break up with the fries, well – except that one cheat day.

The competition is not with that hot body on the magazine covers. The competition is with this hot body that belongs to me which can be hotter, any day.

So – Mission ELLE.
