I love vacations and my most recent one was with my family — after nearly 10 years. Before the trip, I had decided that while on vacation I would not think about my work outs or diets. When I announced this to my friend she said, “Try not to eat just about anything. Try to balance your diet.” But I was determined to enjoy myself.
However, once I actually went on the trip, I found myself keeping a check on what I ate almost sub consciously. I suppose my four months of training have had an affect on me. I, otherwise love sweets. But when I was offered my favourite sweet by my sister-in-law, I promptly turned it away. I’m quite surprised myself that I didn’t binge. I was just conscious about eating anything that contributed to my flab.
My workouts at the gym usually entail a mix of cardio, weights and stretching. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why my trainer made me do all those crazy stretches. But while on this trip I realised just how much my workous had helped me. My stamina had increased so much. When we went trekking with my cousins, who all look fitter than me, they could barely climb up half the hill, while I had no trouble. I was so proud of myself. I may not have lost as much weight, but stamina has definitely improved. Earlier I’d feel conscious when I saw the other girls training at my gym. But now I realise that I’ve been getting better too. Time to take up new challenges.
