Self-designed Fitness Plan
A few days ago, I had shared in my Insta stories that I lost 3 Kg weight in 3 Weeks last month with my Self-designed Fitness Plan. I know it’s not a big deal for someone who religiously follows a fitness routine. But it was a miracle for someone like me who has only seen her weight graph go up over the years.
And the exciting part is, my fitness plan doesn’t even include any dieting or gymming or any harsh restrictions on myself. I designed this plan keeping in mind how my body reacts to certain exercises, which I learned over the years. And also knowing my body’s endurance capacity.

Today, I am going to share my secrets with you guys. But let me tell you, I have started this fitness routine this year only, it’s been just a month. I am not claiming that anyone can lose weight by following the fitness plan I have made. I just want to record my progress & hope that it works for you as well.
This year, I have pledged to adopt a healthy lifestyle and follow a well planned fitness routine

I feel the most important step before embarking on any fitness journey is to acknowledge the fact that there is something wrong with our body & our way of living. Only then we can work towards improving it.
STEP – 1
I know my problem areas and the first step in designing my fitness plan was to write them down.
- Most critical of all, I fall under the overweight category.
- I have PCOD & Hypothyroidism.
- Every now & then, I crave for junk foods especially burger & pizza.
- I spend 90% of my time in front of a screen be it a laptop or a mobile phone.
- I wake up very late in the morning & sleep quite late at night.
- There is almost zero physical activity in my daily routine.
STEP – 2
Now, that I know what are my problems areas, I need to find out a way to curb these issues. After thinking over, I decided to include 4 major lifestyle changes in my fitness plan.
- A- To start a workout routine
- B- To limit my screen time
- C- To change my sleeping pattern
- D- To bring a change in my eating habits.
Lifestyle changes may differ for each one of us depending on our problem areas.
STEP – 3
The job until here was quite simple. Now, the next step was to implement these changes in my lifestyle.
In my upcoming posts, I will take up each point one by one and explain how I am implementing the changes. Also, I’ll share the roadblocks which I am facing.
Before ending this post, I want to include one very important point here. The one which is often neglected, like the way I didn’t even mention it in my list. And that is the benefits of liquid intake in weight loss.
I am saying liquid and not water because for me drinking plain water is so very boring. This doesn’t mean that I drink sugar-laden packaged fruit juices or preservatives-filled soft drinks. Instead, I try to make my plain water delicious, healthy and interesting. I drink flavored green tea, fruit infused water, detox water, detox fruit juices all prepared in minutes at home. Will talk about this as well in my next posts.

I firmly believe that fitness is one of the most important aspects of daily living. Fitness improves your appearance not only by helping you maintain your weight and muscle mass, but also by helping you appear more bright, healthy, and vibrant. I am a complete fitness freak person!
All the steps are super easy and quite doable as well. Loved the blog post.
I need to borrow a leaf out of your book and embark on a weight loss program myself. I am overweight and also a mild hypothyroid. Your post gives me a certain inspiration to actually plan and execute a workout session. Great post.
I have seen your IG stories. Sticking with a fitness plan and going through the entire month was commendable Neha.
Let me also try to follow this plan. It sure is motivating.
I completely agree with you that we need to understand our specific need first to address the issues n yes lifestyle changes r most important
Flavored water or infused water is said to have many benefits as mentioned by you. But I find it very difficult to manage it in my kitchen. I am soon going to get an instacuppa infused water thermos for myself this coming summers.
An encouraging and uplifting post. I feel half fit and motivated already!
