So I totally forgot to make a blog entry yesterday. But that’s because I was buying a new set of dumbells ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, my exercise plan is ready. This is what I am following.

Yesterday was a little challenging for me even mentally. As I was getting dressed to step out, I noticed that my belly had become bigger than what it was even before I started working out! I was a little scared, demotivated, negative about how I couldn’t fit well into what I was wearing. The entire evening I was very conscious of my body. But then the reason for the sudden bloating hit me as I was driving back! It was RICE! This was probably the second time only in the past fortnight that I ate rice for lunch and I don’t think I am going to eat rice again till I achieve my exercise goal. I read online about rice and stomach bloating. Apparently, rice “swells” in the stomach after absorbing liquids inside. Another theory was that sometimes the bacteria in the large intestine that help with digestion of rice start producing gas because of which this sudden bloating occurs. Whatever it was, I was feeling bloated like crazy! And it’s not a nice feeling. After all the workouts and planning the diets, it doesn’t feel good when the tummy protrudes even more than what it was at the beginning!

Anyhow, thankfully the bloating mystery is solved ๐Ÿ™‚ Also I have bought a Kilo of whey protein powder so that there’s a commitment to finishing it.

I am going to put up a lot of pictures today. So stay tuned!
