I Joined the 10 Pound Challenge!

By Disha / January 15, 2012

Remember when I said that I’m sorta-kinda-not-really satisfied with my weight? Like, I’m a “normal” body weight, but if I lost 10 pounds I’d be uber-happy? Well, this blog called Newlyweds on a Budget just announced a 10 pound challenge. The idea is that a bunch of bloggers all try to lose 10 pounds over […]

Fitness Friday: The Puking Cat

By Disha / October 21, 2011

I don’t like the name of this exercise, but I love what it does for my abs. Plus, it’s free. It doesn’t require any equipment, special clothes or a gym membership. How’s that for beauty on a budget? Here’s how it works: Step One: Get on your hands and knees in “plank” position. Your back […]


Fitness Friday: The Side Plank

By Disha / October 14, 2011

I hate to ‘fess up, but I’ve got these little rolls on my midriff — not huge ones, but enough that I feel self-conscious wearing a tight shirt. (Hello, winter — cold weather approaching, and finally I can cover up with sweaters!) So I started looking into exercises that tighten those love handles, and one […]

My “Lazy” Weight Loss Plan

By Disha / July 23, 2011

Confession, dear readers: I think grueling exercise sucks. Who wants to push themselves until they’re drenched in sweat, feeling cramps in their stomach, out of breath and wanting to collapse? Ugggh.
