Run, Fat Girl, Run

1:03 AM


May was the month full of weddings, farewells, travels, visitors ...but... I say, "Enough!" I need to take charge of my life now. I miss my fitness and routine. I have gained about 4 pounds due to lack of exercise and intake of excessive amounts of processed sugar! Just thinking (read: typing) about it is making me 'sick-in-my-belly'! Agrh! so much hard work down the drain again

However, the positive [and opportunist] person that I am, I have decided to channel this frustration and aggression towards something I have been meaning to do for over a year but have taken my first steps to do it - only now! [Thanks Ana, for inspiring!]

I want to be a RUNNER! I want to run Marathons and be able to go on for at least 10 miles in one stretch. And that's my new goal and motivation. At the moment I am logging in a mere 2 miles in 15 minutes on the treadmill or 3 miles in 30 minutes on the track/road!

But that's it! It's about time I fought back with vengeance [WarningBeware you -> Bulge]. I do not want to be the 'Ms. Fatty Fat-terson' again! And now that I have even blogged about it, there is definitely no looking back. I will die of the public humiliation if I back-out or give up now

Also, I have heard runners (with healthy eating habits) have washboard abs! ["Hello Abs! I will see you soon now. Don't hide from-me-no-more!"Anyone, willing to join?

  1. Tanvi, you are quite an inspiration! Good Luck with your marathon training :)
    Ive been lazy about my fitness and have started fresh after being motivated by your blog. There's nothing like starting things afresh, right :)

    Meera.

  2. Me me!

    I guess I am not much of a runner but I love to walk. I walk to and fro work everyday which is like an hour long. Thats the amount of exercise I am giving my body right now. I know I should do more tho.

  3. You go girl!
    But I have to say, i just googled how much 4 pounds is in kg and it's really not that much.
    The longest I've ever run is a half marathon. It was such a rush- I highly recommend it. I'd love to do a marathon but my knees have decided they have other ideas so I'm waiting to get an MRI when I'm home in Oz...if I get the go ahead we could be cyber training buddies!

  4. Fat girl??? You are faaaaar away from a fat girl. But I want to be a runner, too. By the way, 2 miles in 15 minutes? that sounds good to me! It takes me about 12 minutes to run ONE mile, hahaha. There you go - I've humiliated myself publicly just to make you feel better!!! Hope you're happy :P
    Also, I'm definitely joining you with this challenge. Have you tried out the C25k program? I'm thinking of starting out on that since I'm SO unfit. :)

  5. 2 miles in 15 mins, wow..i do 2 miles in 30 mins:-)

    I was a runner - did two half-marathons between the first and second kid:-)My running partner has now ditched me so have joined the gym. And what a coincidence, today is my first "cross-training" class and I am totally goin to get my ass kicked!! So I am ready to join you...I also have a Maui trip in Aug so really need to shed some fat cells..Tankinis, here I come!!

    On a separate note: I wore a lot of Gap Khakis when I started working hence the mindset that they are more for work:-) And you are right, blogging has changed my perspective but for the worse!! I keep mentally evaluating everyone I meet including my boss!!I am in soo much trouble...

    At the end, this is a fun thing that we are doing. Fashion is personal and there are no rules:-)

    And you dont have to like everything that I like..I love prints in general and everyone who has wavy/curly hair - I have straight hair:(

  6. I would be more than happy to join in. But Alas! distance keeps us apart. I have taken up biking (yes biking on Delhi roads) recently. My childhood passion has come back.

  16. You go, girl! I always find that I push exercise to the back burner because "I have too many things to do". Lame excuse. I hope that you achieve all your dreams! Let us know how it goes with the marathons and what-not!

  17. Good luck with it. I think I need to get into myfitness routine again as well. I am so out of shape these days.

  18. Runnnnn Forestttt.... okay, okay, you're runing through a forest but I just couldn't resist.

    You go get 'em girl. And that "fat" is actually "phat". Right? :D

    I'm pretty sure you'll stick to this... it was a harder goal to reach where you are now, you really put in the hard yards so this...is childs play

    I'm not a runner, my husband is, I do like that feeling that runners get of the 'push through', when all of a sudden your mind is not running, your body is...

    Love the pic by the way!
