Fit hai toh Hit hai

This is a fitness update. For the record,

I've started the "couch potato to 5k" running plan and "100 push ups" training program along with my already hugely successful "Atkins" diet plan.

In 39 days of diet, I've lost 10 kg. Another 6 kg to loose before I reach my target weight. But in terms of fitness, there's a long way to go.

Gone are the days when I captained my college cricket team or represented my region at the All-India national athletic meet or was the sports captain at my school.

For now, I am just a couch potato (who does not eat potato coz of the diet) but spends a lot of time on the couch! But that's going to change. And soon. Last evening was my first training session.

Thank you, Roop for sharing these fitness programs. And to Fitness Fervor.

p.s. Wasn't that a bloody clich├ęd title? :p

Rashmi - Just don't tell him who you got inspired from. Else I'll find my posters on every lamp post with the message "Wanted: Dead or Dead" :))

Roop - Yes, that's what it takes. You know, maybe I'll do a post on Fitness Fervor in a while about my experiences, tips and stuff about these plans.
