Still working, still Aiming.

Wohooow it has been a while ha?!

Yeah life got really busy on my end of the world, I’ve been running like a headless chicken LOL . Hubby got the flu-thank god i didn’t catch it from him- and he was the sweetest when he was sick. My Family in law came over, i guess they couldn’t wait for the Honey moon to end so they would come. We had fun, they cooked some good food 😛 And the important part of it all.. my weight! Unfortunately i am the same weight, but i am not the same size, i am one size smaller which counts as success no?

I finally listened to my friend and signed up at the Y as they call it here. Or as it is known the YMCA … I have to admit that is the best thing i did to my self.

Imagine for 10 KD’s only i got a fully access to all workout machines from stationary bikes to high tech treadmills like the ones we have in Flex, champions and Elysium (life-fitness machines) and weight lifting equipments. Also there are two swimming pools, personal trainer, yoga, pillates, run fit, aerobics, squash, bike classes, etc. you name it they have it.

What really amazed me is their services, i mean for only 10 KD’s i got a personal trainer , back in Kuwait i had to pay 120KD’s for 12 sessions of personal training! but here i got it for 30 days for only 10 KD’s Oh gosh i am cheap 🙂

 Yeah i am really being cheap, i really blame it on marriage. You got married you have to pay.  Take it from me.

See you later my dear readers,

let me go get ready for another hectic day … ooh i miss Dala3 il Kuwait. Its really enough to have someone asking you ” hiiiiiii how are you doing today” even if they don’t mean it, it makes lots of difference.

Anyhow..

Diet and Marriage

 

One thing i learned out of this experience, marriage and diet don’t go together..  specially when  your spouse is a great cook and his part time job is in-home chef, there is no way on earth i can lose this fat.Yet, Exercise and marriage work VERY WELL together , he nags alot.. i hit the gym and then we are happy .

Now i am on the 1400 cal diet, Thank god i can taste his yummy food, keeping a written diary of my food intake, fat grams per day and grams of carbohydrates per day. One thing shocked me, a subway tuna sandwich has 30 grams of fat, imagine you are eating two table spoons of butter .

I am aware of my food, i am aware of that i put into my stomach, we really need to get nutrition fact on all of our food in Kuwait, that’s the only way to know.

I noticed Toast has sugar, as well as fish fingers. Citric Acid, and other chemicals play an important role in slowing ones metabolism and  helps the fat to be stored instead of burned.

My sweet Dietitian gave me a pedometer which is always attached to my waist from the time i wake up until i sleep, i should have 10,000 steps per day.. and my steps range between 3,000 to 7,000 if i walked alot that day. This means i need 1:30 hours of walking daily just to reach 7,000 steps.
