How You Can Lose Weight With Me This Summer



Hey guys!

My uni exam results are coming tomorrow and that got me thinking about the most difficult 2 months I had this year. April and May were 2 terrific months for me, my stress levels were at its peak, I was stress eating, my body started giving up on itself and the stress and my stress related eating habits led to me developing health conditions. Now that I stand in front of the mirror the consequences are visible. Sitting in the library everyday for 12 hours straight with hardly any walking can make you gain some serious weight. At that point it seemed worth it and well tomorrow I'll know. My logic was - weight I can maintain anytime but my grades, I've only got one real shot at it. 
Today I had the courage to get back on the weighing scale and see how much I've actually gained -
6 kilograms! That's dangerously close to my old weight, if you don't know about my previous weight loss transformation you can read about it here.
If I've done it before I can do it again and if any of you would like to lose some weight join me on this journey let's do it together! We'll keep weekly updates via my blog. I will update you on my progress.

Eating Habits 
From last time I know more than exercising your diet is KEY. So what has changed recently for me to gain weight? I've started eating mum's Tamil food on a daily! As delicious as it is I really can't afford to eat like that, Tamil Food can be seriously unhealthy but delicious I must say.
During the exam period I have learnt to drink fizzy drinks and eat packs of sweets which I never did before. Now that I'm back home for the holidays I've started eating dinner at ridiculous times. 

Main Dietary changes: 
1. Only eat Tamil Food 2 times a week 
2. No more fizzy drinks in the home only when I'm out at a restaurant
3. No sweets to be bought 
4. Cut down on the dairy - especially milk
5. Must drink 2 litres of water a day
6. Eat on time - no dinners after 8 pm 

Punishment fees for not following, will be put in my savings account
1. £4 per extra Tamil meal a week
2. £2 per fizzy drink
3. £2 per chocolate bar or sweet pack
4. I'm going to trust myself with the milk and not set a fee
5. £1 for under drinking water - anything below 2 litres
6. £3 for a late dinner 

To make sure I do all of this I'm going to set a fee for each time I lie to myself and act outside the rules. I'm going to take advantage of my stinginess and make sure I charge myself in case I don't follow. At least the money will go to my savings.

Exercise:
As I'm a part-time waitress and I work quite frequently during the summers I count that as quite a bit of exercise. 
In the extra time I find I shall go for morning swims and jogs at the park. 
Swimming is the quickest and most fun way to cardio! I'm also going to buy myself a bike if I don't follow. 

Sooo these are the things I will do and you guys are welcome to join me on this! 
Let's connect via instagram drop me a DM at @undercovermathu or email me at undercovermathu@gmail.com! 

Till tomorrow guys!

My Prison Visit Experience




Hello loves,

so recently I realised that slowly I've lost the true meaning of blogging. A blog is not supposed to be a website, it's supposed to tell people your story so that they can follow it and enjoy it with you so that's what I'm doing to do. The aim is to update my blog as much as possible even if it's just an entry to update you about what I did that day. Moving on to what this post is really about...
The other day I got approached by a company with an interpreter job! Crazy right? I didn't even apply! I took it of course and at first I found it really scary. I hadn't really signed a non-disclosure agreement before and seeing all the paperwork with small print was a little scary so I got confirmation from my uncle who helped me out. 
My first task was in a prison! Amazing right!! I have always wanted to go inside a prison and to see what it is like without you know actually committing a crime myself. The client needed me to translate what a prisoner was saying and that's all I can disclose about it. However, I can tell you how it was on the inside! It was actually just like I imagined, if not a little scarier actually. I went to the HMP Elmley on the Isle of Sheppey. The security within the prison was crazy and there were so many gated doors! I'm pretty sure we walked through 15 doors at least to get to where I needed to. 

On my arrival I had to sign myself in the staff bit and I had to hand in almost everything - phone, valid trains tickets, deodorants, USB etc. and I gave them my passport.Then I waited for a prison officer to take me through all those doors - he had to open every door with a lock and unlock it! 
While in there I saw a few prisoners in there on the passing. 
It was a very interesting experience and I am so glad that I got the experience. Definitely something I'd like to talk about in an interview if relevant. 

I'm gonna have some dinner while watching an episode of 13 reasons why and then head to bed.

Till tomorrow! :) 

Good night lovelies xo
