The Uh-oh moment

The past few months have been pretty dull and boring. Just the usual.. Work, eat, chill, sleep and back to work again. It was just not that I had nothing to write about (I’m not a loser duh!), I just didn’t find any encouragement. You know like at work, usually you’re bound to complete the work or else you’re screwed. But it’s different here; no one is much bothered about one small, hardly active blog. So I pull myself up and decide to write about something, and on a Monday because,  let’s face it, we all need some kind of hope to get the week over with.

Disclaimer: This is just a random post written after ages. Don’t be mad if it is boring. 😉

So where was I? I was down for a while; some things at work weren’t “working” out as planned, the cook in me had almost died, and yes of course most importantly, my plans to stay fit was crippled by KFC s, a few other burger joints, Chinese restaurants and not to mention the new Kebab center near my new home(sigh!). Well to top this all, birthday cakes(I can’t not eat my own birthday cake!). So in short- my on and off relationship with morning jogs was almost coming to an end. Gone were those early morning dates, when I used to get up excited and gulp my lemon- honey water, when I used to plug in my earphones and shun away my worries and stress, when I used to feel tired and fresh all at the same time! I started  waking up hungry, sulky, bloating, looking in the mirror and hating myself. It was almost over. But eventually that dreaded day of realization had arrived, and knocked at my mind’s door.

It was a hot Saturday afternoon; I was done with my morning coffee and a big, heavy breakfast- I’m not going to say what it was, but it had whole egg(s), bread(white!), almost a complete box of butter(i.e. 100g ish), and some ketchup. I decided to go to the mall and buy some groceries. Wondering why go to a mall for grocery? Well, that’s where the whole fun is! The mall has Dunkin Donuts, and I can probably take away a Crunchy Joe and my free donut(yes I have a coupon that gives my free donuts for AN ENTIRE YEAR). At least that was the plan.

I took a quick shower and opened the wardrobe- I found my favorite blue Tee- the comfortable, light, and loose one; most suitable for the heat. I decide to wear that. I pull up my jeans, apply some lotion, and pull down my tee, and try again, except that the tee wasn’t coming down. There was something stuck in my tee. I tried hard and harder… Finally I managed to pull it down. And I looked in the mirror. I was horror- struck. You remember me mentioning something getting stuck in my tee? That was me!!! I had gained so much weight that I wasn’t fitting into my own, loose tee! And when I finally got into it, I could see a big, round, flabby tire on the place I used to call stomach!

BAM. That was the moment. When I realized that I needed to pull myself together. I needed to get back together with jogging. However hard it is, however time consuming it is, I need to get back in shape.

And now I am, slowly. If you know how hard it is to try to get back someone who you cheated on, you probably know how I feel right now. It’s not easy, but I need to do it. I am trying my best, and I will get me back on track. 🙂

PS: I didn’t take away anything from DD that day !! 😉
