Yummylicious Moms in Bollywood

Image
WhenI picked this month’s prevention magazine at the stand I was shocked to see Shilpa Shetty on the cover not so much on seeing her but more on how super-hot she looked. And I was like what the hell, wasn't it a few months back that she looked plum and cute with all the baby fat. Where did all that go, and convinced myself that it was certainly Photoshoped. But then I saw one of the grainy pics (the one you take on a cell phone) of hers on twitter and some advert of a reality TV show she is on and boy was I surprised to look at her svelte figure. Moral of the story, I wanted to know how she had achieved it. This got me thinking on all the other Bollywood moms who achieved the same thing. So I did some research and this post is about her and some of the hottest moms in Bollywood and their postpartum weight loss secret. It’s certainly tough to follow but not impossible. So here we go starting with our very on Mrs. Kundra

Day 3 – RushFit- Strength and Endurance Workout DVD

Like I mentioned on Day1 this dvd was supposed to be the first workout but I messed up the so the schedule so Day 3 it was. It was tough especially after the Banish Fat yesterday.Seriously all the time during the workout I just wanted someone to give me a huge thud on head for a couple reasons. One I messed up with the schedule, the calendar was placed a certain way soyou can do it and work different muscle groups and not over load one. Two I’ve been messing up diet big time, eating late breakfast, skipping lunches and hungry at all the wrong time. And that’s why when I do my workouts I feel light headed.Today before the workout I had 3 huge scoops of icecream, though it help me work better, but it just made matters worse. I wanted to throwup. God just hit me on the head and help me eat clean and right. Not to mention consuming enough water. So to sum it up the workout was taxing but I got through it and hoping that tomorrow is going to be a betterday. Stay focused and train fearless. Lov…

Day 2 RushFit – Cardio + Stretch and Flexibility

Day 2 RushFit – Cardio + Stretch and Flexibility Today’s workout can be summed with 2 quotes “Nothing comes for free” Jillian and “muscles are like elastic if you pull at it when it’s cold it snaps” George. It was day for cardio of my choice and I chose “Banish Fat Boost metabolism “by Jillian Michaels. Its 56 minutes long including the cool down. This workout I have done so many times especially in the 2009 when I had a huge weight loss goal. And when I started off today I thought, this aint tough I have done it a million times but boy was I wrong. Jillian Michael grinds you to paste in this cardio blast.It reminded me how unfit I still was but in a good way and I pushed myself, got uncomfortable so I reach the end . Of course I had to modify a couple of the moves, however when I do this the second time over I will make sure I do the advance version of all the moves.Rushfit recommends a Cardio of 30 minutes in the first 4 weeks, but the bad ass that I am I decided I could certainly do …

Day 1 - Georges St-Pierre 'Rushfit' Workout Program

Yesterday marked the beginning of Georges St-Pierre 'Rushfit' Workout Program. After almost zero workouts for the past 2 months, it wasn't as bad as I thought. George is a MA fighter and the workout is based on his workout for fights which is designed by his Trainer Erick Owings. I chose to do the advanced calendar, merely because I wanted to up my game from the last time. The workout guide provides you a way to assess yourself to decide on which calendar to workout. I still wanted to do the advanced instead of the beginners or intermediate. This is tough love for myself and little bit of craziness. I have of course done all the things that the workout guide asks you to do like the pics and assessment of stats and also the assessment, will post that here soon.  This is how the Week 1 looks like Day 1: Strength and Endurance Workout DVD Day 2: Cardio + Stretch and Flexibility Bonus DVD Day 3: Abdominal Strength and Core Conditioning (AM) + Balance & Agility Bonus (PM) Day 4:…

Trial Rooms can make you thin

No this is not a name of a workout, but what I mean is an actual trial room... those tiny booths in stores with huge mirrors and space to try clothes on, yes that’s what I mean. I love shopping trying on new clothes and styles or should I say loved until because earlier I could fit into a size zero skirt and totally rock it. But now shopping is dreadful. So hubby dearest and I were out shopping yesterday for tees and just random women clothes and there was a sale at my favorite store. In all the excitement I just went picking everything I saw and liked and walked into the trial room with a armload of clothes.  And then the horrible happened, I tried 10 different outfits and I dint fit into any of them.  And the ones that I managed to squeeze into accentuated the bulges and tires. So I send hubby on the hunt for bigger sizes, and then even bigger. By the time I had change into bigger bulkier clothes I was close to tears and hated everything I chose. I hated myself for the being this fa…

The Long Hiatus and Back

Image
The last time I wrote was a short post about how crazy life had gotten. And after a month long of craziness I have finally found time to write and relax (maybe a little bit). There was so much happening around me this past month, even my showers have been 5 minutes long with swelteringIndiansummer heat . So what happened, lots, to begin with my maid walked in one day as usual more than 2 hours late. The usual morning cooking cleaning madness, I asked her about it and what does she do…… tell me that“ why are youmaking a big deal about it , I am just late today not every day”. That certainly was the last nail in the coffin and I told her not so many words to F@#! Off. Seriously, she walks in and walks out at whatever time she pleases and expects me to keep up with her incompetency and worse her terrible attitude. All that said I was stuck with a no maid, but I said what the F@#! I will do it all myself. And guess what I survived and entire month without a maid. All the sweeping, dusti…
