My Weight Gain Confession
Heylo Everyone, I am not able to spend a lot of time on the blog due to some alterations in life. But honestly, I miss talking to everyone. I miss reading so many articles and mails that I get. I will try to settle down within this week. My sorry to you ji :D..
Weight gain Confession? Yoo! Since, I was trying to do this and that and all that (exercises) in last couple of months, plus I had to a lot of travelling and there was no proper food as I was staying away from home. So I lost weight, I lost the glow of my skin. And I started looking like a kamzoor bacha :P. I thought of taking a break. I came back home, stopped the rush and lived in peace for some days. I also tried to figure out how to gain weight healthily. As I have a good metabolic rate, I love to stay uber active and I cannot live without exercises esp running so it was not easy peasy for me to come out of skinny me and to get back my glow.
“It is better said than done”, a very common proverb and very true too. I have asked so many females here to do certain things to gain weight. Now the challenge on me was to fix myself a diet and exercise plan and than follow it.
Well well, I am successfully able to achieve what I wanted to in a month and a half time so thought I will share it. You know I hated that feeling when my pants become really lose 😛 My cup size dropped to that of a school going girl 😀 . and my skin looked dull 😛
Here is what I did
1. Got up, drank warm water, freshen up and had a fruit.
2. My workout had less of cardio. except for thrice in a week running because I cannot afford to lose my stamina.
3. I did yoga, pilates, free weights and compound exercises. I did push ups and suryanamaskars for toning up my breasts.
4. Breakfast was paranthas and curd, stuffed paranthas 😛
5. Mango shake after 2 hours. Big glass 😛
6. Lunch after two hours: daal, chawal, chapati, sabzi, curd (white rice and multigrain chapati)
7. Peanuts and raw coconut or poha after two hours
8. Any fruit or dates after 2 hours
9. Dinner chapati and sabzi.
10. After running a glass of milk.
I use to add protein shake to my mango shakes on some days. Or else would eat raw home made cottage cheese with my breakfast.
Basically I increased my calorie intake for that increased my portion size and increased the protein and good fat content in my diet. I made my workout more strength based. I also did a lot of pranayams and breathing exercises to calm down my mind.
Well I am back to my normal size and my skin is also normal again 🙂
My mistake was that I was not accompanying a lot of exercises with appropriate nutrition. But I have got my lesson now. I will start my trainings again soon and have already fixed my eating chart. I have realized that I really do not want to look skinny. I love to look muscular, healthy and glowing.
Hope this helps many girls trying to gain weight.
