The Biggest Loser

 It’s new year and time for some resolutions, ain’t it? Well, after my body gave birth to a 6lb human being four months ago, it’s high time for it to snap back to its pre-pregnancy form.

Few days ago, I eavesdropped on the conversation between my two coworkers about “Biggest Loser Challenge” that they went planning to commence, while I was fetching some hot water from the coffee room, for brewing my green tea. Being interested in this, I approached T and asked her to sign me up for this challenge.

We had our initial weigh-ins yesterday. The winner will receive $100 after our final weigh-ins on April 30th. We will be accounted for our % weight loss.

D dropped by my cube and handed me three sheets describing various exercises like leg raises, stomach crunches, plank, push ups, lunges, squats etc that we are supposed to religiously follow during this time period.

Sharing that information here for all the interested folks. Please do drop a line if you are interested in partaking this challenge too!

I can’t wait to start torturing my body😁

Loving my FITBIT!

My FITBIT
My FITBIT

FITBIT– It’s a new fitness fad! People love wearing this hued band around their wrist which enables them to monitor their steps, calories, movements, sleep et al. Its a fun way to consciously keep track of your day to day activities and also easy way to be fit and healthy.

On December 18th,2013, I was introduced to FITBIT by my husband. FITBIT was one among the other gifts that I received on my birthday,from my husband! Yes! Crazy birthday gift, I know! 🙂 Initially, I hated to wear this new band around my wrist. It reminded me of CIA/FBI using RFID tags on criminals to monitor them. But, as the days passed by, I began to understand its usefulness and how it can facilitate me to stay fit. If you are a seasoned FITBIT user, you definitely love watching your FITBIT stats frequently throughout the day (At least I do! 🙂 ), competing with your friends for highest number of steps, miles walked, calories burned, active minutes, and also love watching all the lights of your FITBIT glow and feel your band vibrate when you have reached your daily goal! These things are what motivates me to wear FITBIT everyday!

Early Morning Hike

Wolf river Greenway Trail
Wolf river Greenway Trail

I have never been a person who ties up her shoe lace and heads into the woods to strain her calf muscles for the hiking pleasure, which a lot of people rave about.Last week, I had the very first hike of my life at “Dogwood trail”, Lake Ouachita State Park, Arkansas. It was an easy trail which was 1/2 mile long. I was enchanted by marvelous woods, chirping birds, breezy winds and an overall awesome hiking experience. That was my first hike and I absolutely loved it!

Having returned to my hometown, I desired to pursue hiking. We did some research on trails around our home and came across “Wolf River Greenway Trail”. It was just 10 minutes away from home and had great reviews. We decided to try hiking this trail.
On July 4th,2014 being US Independence Day and a holiday, at 7:15 am we set out to Wolf River Greenway trail. We parked our car at the entrance of the trail and commenced our mesmerizing hiking adventure. We hiked amidst the woods in  gorgeous weather. The trail was stupendous with tall and shady trees, curvy path, ups and downs to provide me the necessary inclines and declines, river on left, creek on the right, bikers riding their bikes and calling out to the hikers to watch out; and the hikers obviously enjoying their hike. We hiked 4 miles for a duration of an hour and a half. It was a delightful experience. We decided to hike every weekend from here on!
