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!
