this week has been horrible. it was raining when the week started so obviously it was way to gloomy a day to be spent in the office working over spreadsheets and word documents where you cannot even listen to the rain and the thunder. once back on track i was ready to work and prepare a presentation when it got postponed because wednesday was a national holiday- oh freak! now that i am here today and barely able to concentrate on work (hangover from the movie-dinner-car ride date with hubby dearest) i realize its already second half of thursday. which means 2 days away from the week-end haha, oh mahn!! when will i ever get serious in life?? never is the only answer the devil in me answers. but yes, there are a few things i have become serious about. the food fall when i am working. sundays are always to binge and try new things. so on a daily routine i try and keep my carbs n fats in proportion so as not to gain more weight. u see, i have this desk job. i research, i ponder, i think, i create new ideas and put it on worksheets and mail it across for approvals. the only time i really do get up from my desk is when i need to clarify with my colleagues and also to use the washroom. which is next door and no long walk included… my body starts feeling dizzy/heavy headed/ sleepy right after lunch. the old gujju habit of snapping a nap in the afternoon is hard to shake off. all this and a sudden urge to get fit has made me follow some strict rules through out the day.
i begin my day with 5-6 medium sized soaked almonds. good for hair good for brains good for energy and vitamin B; read more here
i pop in one of these to help boost immunity right before i leave for work… they have shown some good results already. i am way too prone to catching cold n running nose.
these are my all time favorite tangy pops when i feel sleepy after lunch. it even refreshes the garlic-y flavor from my mouth. (arrgghh i so hate it when someone talks and the smell just informs us all what they just ate). they are even pleasant little things that can be offered to colleagues . i keep a jar full of it in my bedroom. its addictive.
my meal never tastes complete until there is something sweet included in it. i am not a fan of carrying homemade sweets to the workplace so i keep these chocolate wafer balls with me. cheap n sweet and a few pops satisfy the tongue. no extra heavy fats in it that can make me worry about.
one more work place essential- treptin. those starving evenings when i am just an hour or two away from heading home and do not want to eat anything that could lose my dinner appetite, i eat 2-3 of these biscuits. they are full of protein and compensates for my non-protein lunch. it also refrains me from hogging any outside food. when i am not carrying treptin, i carry an apple or a pear for these hunger pangs. somehow lately i have been wanting to try a lot of healthy foods options and homecook recipes, this blog has tons of veggie options too. i am on the right track to get back to a shape and everything around has been encouraging. do share with me your precious tips as comments. cheers! aavjo KPG
