  1. I absolutely love melons! Water melon is expensive though. I tend to eat lot more yellow ones. Basically all the different yellow ones you see in the attached chart. Are the yellow ones also good like the red ones? http://www.foodmuseum.com/images/xMelonposter.jpg
  2. Forgot to ask why you're doing cardio when you have a fever! I hope all's well with you, VG. Don't work too hard. I was trying to act hard and did not know that it was something more than a minor cold! Anyway I am ok now after a week of flu. Yesterday at gym I managed to jerk my head backwards while I was doing cardio on the recumbent bike. Don't ask me how My neck became all frozen and stiff! Yesterday and today was such a pain in the @ss...I mean neck It's starting to get back to normal. I am having such shitty luck with these little niggles I will tell you how it happened. When on the bike I sometimes turn my head upwards and look at the ceiling. Yesterday while I was doing that I decided to turn my neck sidewards and see how I looked in the side wall mirrors....in the process my head fell back off it's own weight. I guess the lean angle of the seat played a part in it. So much for attempted vanity On the positive side My weight is consistently showing 3kgs less. I was actually touching 73kg when I started all this and now it's touching 69. So around 7 lb loss. Not a big loss but atleast it's going in the right direction!
  3. I was away from the blog so just updated all the entries. Had two bad diet days! Controlled it in the end by not turning it into a whole bad week Did 60km bike ride and it was fun. Will do another one soon but weather is shitty in Europe right now. For next 3 months (summer) I will aim to do 2x 70km rides per week. Obviously I wil continue the gym cardio session on other days.
  4. Since I joined this place I have increased the intake of fresh vegetable bought straight from the local farmers. Takes a lot of effort though. Frozen veggies are just so bloody convenient! Edit- Wait a second you don't mean that I should eat them raw as in uncooked? Like bite the green leaves straight after washing like a cow? I will need to head to the RAW section of the forum to read up more
  5. Rome was not built in a day Don't look for short cuts! Aim for long term/permanent changes. Give us some stats on your height, waist and body fat%. I know Indian food very well and the stuff cooked in traditional way is FULL of fat There is a reason why a typical middle aged Indian has a Ganesh belly Then again Americans are not that thin either
  6. While we are at it. What is your view on flu jabs?
  7. Ok thanks. I will try to consume them within 1-2 days. I normally buy only what I can fit but sometimes i get carried away
  8. Listen to your body and not your greedy mind Why don't you work out how many calories someone of your height/weight requires and then stick to that number? Spread your intake instead of having one huge binge session. Btw most people don't put on weight when they are young. Metabolism slows down with each passing year Ain't life a bi**h?
  9. Ok so I have flu and it's hitting my body HARD! I feel as if I was hit by a truck! Ways to treat your cold/flu symptoms http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/common/infections/cold-flu/073.html Anyway my question is that I have a huge bag of oranges in the kitchen. Is it truly ok to eat them?Specially when as part of flu you get severe sore throat? Just wanted to check before I tuck into them I am drinking lot of soups/tea with crushed ginger inside. Any other things you guys can recommend? I think bottom line is that a flu has to run it's course and cannot be cured early. I was just wondering if the oranges would ease the pressure
  10. 15th June Official start of no upper body exercise to aid complete recovery of my shoulder. I will take 2 week break. Hopefully my shoulder will be fixed for good this time! So no upper body exercise till 1st of July! Exception would be stomach exercises as they have zero effect on my shoulder pain. I can concentrate on fat burning for now anyway. Yesterday was a tough session at gym as I had fever and a strong cold. Cardio was hell but I completed it anyway. Today I went out and got new battery for my bike speedometer. I also went to the Polar watch dealer and got the battery on my Polar watch replaced. Will help me keep track of calories, heart rate ...etc Slightly knee pain for last 2 weeks. Nothing new as I have had this kind of pain since I was a child. P.S- Bought some old skool black canvas shoes today ( fashion related nothing to do with fitness). Converse rip offs. Anyway back to drinking soup as this blocked nose is doing my head in!
  11. Ok so my freezer gets full sometimes and I place the remaining frozen vegetable packets in the normal area of the fridge for upto 2-4 days before cooking. Is that dangerous in anyway?
  12. Luckily my problem is not as sever as someone suggested (I would go crazy if I had to fart every 30 minutes)! The swelling up thing happens maybe once a week.
  13. I do weights first and then cardio. Although I am starting to do quick 10 5-10 minute cardio session to warm up my body > then weights > then back to proper 45min cardio session.
