October Challenge Update

It's been good so far. I know it's been just 3 days. But I have kept my pledge of daily dose of exercises! What I have noticed is that I usually keep it for about a week effortlessly. Maximum of two and then my motivation wanders off. But with regular updates on my progress, I am testing to see whether the accountability factor has any impact on my motivation levels. Hopefully if I receive some encouraging feedback, it will work well for me.

Since it is a bit of a hassle to update daily on the blog, I have chosen Twitter as my main medium of recording updates. The fact that I can update from the mobile is a big convenience factor for me and the chances of missing updates with such a convenience are lesser. In order to publish my Tweets, I have added a Twitter widget to this blog's side bar. So this blog will also be updated with my Twitter updates.

Please feel free to follow me on twitter!

October Challenge

I should admit, my August challenge did not materialize even by end September. No, this is not a post to blame it on anything or anyone else. It was just my undisciplined self that needs to be blamed. And the outcome was a pretty bad feeling of FAILURE!

But still I am setting myself another challenge for myself. But this time I am going to go a bit more lean! I will target a more achievable goal. A goal that I am more likely to achieve without requiring a drastic change to my routine and something I am more likely to achieve with my lazy self!
I will lose 2 kilos by the end of this month. I will achieve this my
committing just 5 minutes of exercise on most days.

Trying to give up my food indulgence was a total flop. It brought me to the point where I started to question that I am a plain sucker for good food! So I will not fight my indulgences hard, but I will try to control my portions.

But the end result I expect, no matter how I achieve it is to be 88 kilos by the end of this month!

I would appreciate if you guys can make me accountable for this goal!
