Sitting and standing is proving to be quite a task since the past few days. My body is sore all over and muscles that I never knew I had are aching like they had the crap beaten out of them. Why? That’s because I’ve been working out. Yes skinny girls work out too. A smack on the back of your head if you raised your eyebrows in wonder. Fitness is for everyone. Okay?
When you have been on the skinny side practically your whole life, its easy to slip into the couch-potato mode with zero exercise and workout for your body. The couch becomes your best friend. No matter what you eat, where you eat and how much you eat, your clothes fit you the same. You see no reason to change your sedentary lifestyle and before you know it, there is a tiny layer of fat building up which only you can see. One fine day you realize you are unable to carry a 3kg bag of groceries from the kirana store to your house, which is hardly half a kilometer. Climbing 3 flights of stairs leaves you breathless (At one point I did 6 flights every single day without a break) Few more such embarrassing incidents later you realize how pathetic your condition has become.
So I made some drastic changes. After google-ing and reading a lot, I devised a workout plan and diet for myself (which I’ll share soon). Although its just day #4, I like what am seeing.
These pics were shot on a short trip to Anantagiri hills, a perfect place for trekking. We also planned to visit the temple there (which is what it’s actually famous for) so I had to be in traditional clothes. If you are wondering why I was wearing walking shoes on this outfit… now you know why. Sometimes its all about the comfort.
