Challenge cont. after 1 Wk

My wt loss and healthy living challenge is still going on strong.

I have continued my low carb diet with more protien and fiber. Also early morning Yoga (Padmasadhana) and AOL Kriya is continuing. Evenings I go for atleast 1/2 hr walk. This weekend luckily was a long weekend and we were at home so got to go for longer walks.

My protien and low carb diet has resulted in constipation problems :( Damn! I drink lots of water but thats not helping so much. Any idea how to tackle this problem?

I feel more energetic and more active after these small changes.

I still don't fit into my formal pants and thats concerning. My tummy is not reducing and looks like only walks are not helping. So I am planning to join a gym for some aerobics classes. Lets see how that goes.

I will share some of the recipes I have been looking up online and cooking to help maintain a low carb diet. Its lot of fun to always be on the toes to improve each day.

Life is good!

Today marks the day I take up this challenge to lose 10 pounds in 1 month. Navin and my friend Aruna told me that is too much to lose in too less time.
So I am not putting myself under any pressure. Weight will fall in it's right place if I just take care of the body.

So for now the plan is make small minor changes in eating habits and life style and let nature do it's part.

Breakfast today - 1/2 cup milk, 3 sp curd, honey, 1/2 banana and kashi cereal blended into super sexy shake.

Lunch - forced to eat bread (which I am hopping to avoid) with prawns curry.

Snacks - cherry, oranges
Made Dhokla (healthy) for snack tomorrow.

Dinner - chicken casserole

Sat in lotus pose while working on laptop ( was working from home btw so had this liberty )
Went for a 1/2 hr walk. Was too cold to walk but was too motivated.
Made sure I did not sit in 1 place for more than 45 minutes.
Early dinner.
Watered my plants in the pateo.

Just a honest beginning.
