Earlier, I used to concentrate more on cardio and functional exercises to lose weight gain and get back in shape. During the lockdown, I am focussing more on strength training and flexibility.
Treadmill – 15 mins
Cross trainer – 15 mins
Cycling – 10 mins
My workout routine is as follows:
Low-calorie recipes: I love cooking and preparing low-calorie meals. One of my favourites is rajma and oats tikki. It is packed with protein and has an amazing taste. Sprout’s chilla is also one of my favourite low-calorie recipes.
Fitness secrets I unveiled: Drinking black coffee really helps in cutting down fat. It is a natural fat burner and boosts your metabolism. Also, try to add green tea into your daily schedule as it aids digestion and boosts your immunity.
How do I stay motivated? The moment you are able to witness positive changes in your body, you will get motivated to lose more weight and get back in shape. Also, when people appreciate and notice your weight loss journey, it further helps you to stay motivated and focussed towards your goals
How do you ensure that you don’t lose focus? My weight loss journey has given me immense confidence and completely changed my personality. From an introvert child who used to weigh 120 kilos to a fashion and fitness blogger, I have certainly come a long way. The amount of confidence I have gained after getting back in shape cannot be explained in mere words. I don’t want to ever go back to my same introvert phase of life and this feeling is enough in itself to keep me motivated.
What’s the most difficult part of being overweight? Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most difficult parts of being overweight is dealing with a host of health issues. Hence, battling health conditions was my major concern when I was overweight as now I feel I am educated enough to not get bothered by body-shaming.
What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? Ten years down the line, I want to see myself grow into a polished fitness professional. I obviously want to see myself as a fitness model and an expert who not only has the perfect body but is educated enough to inspire others.
