Hope you all had a good week. This weekend feels like an accomplishment because I completed Level 2 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred yesterday! Its not an easy workout for me but in these 20 days (with a few gaps in between), I’m seeing my body change and my endurance levels increase. I no longer huff and puff while climbing four floors of stairs, I can do a full set of abs without needing to pause in between and I feel much much lighter! I hope those of you who started this workout are able to keep up with it. Don’t worry if you’re not able to exercise some days, just don’t more than 1 day’s gap and don’t stop working out!
I also experimented with some recipes/foods this week. I tried out a Mushroom-Capsicum curry (based on Sia’s recipe), Besan Bhindi, a home-made Wheat base pizza (no cheese, just a bit of mayo- the white stuff you see) and Masala Oats from Saffola (the taste is exactly like Maggi masala!). I was also skipping the eggs since some days but then I remembered what Rujuta Diwekar says about having protein after workout – If you can’t give your body Protein after exercise, don’t exercise at all! I keep some boiled eggs in the fridge and eat 2 after working out.
