Coming back on here and admitting my weight gain to myself and the spark community has been difficult. I long avoided it because it felt like failure. And so I continued my long hours at work and my MBA and got bigger and bigger.

Taking matters into my own hands, on my own, I started eating better and dropped some weight pretty quickly. Then I got pregnant and that went out the window. I managed to keep my weight to low-normal pregnancy gain, and dropped almost all of it after giving birth.

I went back to work and stayed at a steady weight, but then resigned to study full time and now here I am, most of my way to my MBA, but 8kg heavier than after giving birth.

It is time to get a new job, which means I need to fit back into my work clothes. So here I am... Watch this space.

Fitness Minutes: 20,580

My Goals:

Fit my work clothes.

My Program:
You will have to trawl through my blog or ask me nicely to send it to you...

Personal Information:
I am from a little country called New Zealand. We are known for our sheep and our wine - but given that I don't drink wine or eat lamb it's a bit wasted on me.

We are also known for our dairy products - you can't beat kiwi milk, cheese and ice cream - not the most healthy mix in the world, but an excellent source of protein!

If you have never been to New Zealand it is really worth a looksee, I have travelled quite a bit and yet I always come home.

Other Information:
I am working on my career in Marketing right now and my eventual goal of taking over the world ala:
Pinky: "Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—Try to take over the world."

    Excusez moi, Nixxi!! Where pray was there scope for another 5 cm to be knocked off!?!?!? Happy for you!! Just dont disappear on us ok, we need ur support !! Smiles!!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog!! We've picked a date, but seems like there's a chance it may change! 10th feb 2012... but my fiance's sister will be at HEC in Paris for an MBA and she just found out she has leave form 27th feb to 4th march 2012.. n she would've had to take off from studies if the wedding is on 10th.. so she is asking if we can move the date around... lets see what happens of that - in India, wedding days are approveded by priests based on Astro charts of the bride and groom - if its an auspicious day, then its fine, but if not, then VETO! :P
    Im not into the whole astro thing but my fiance's mom is a firm believer in these things, so we're waiting to know what the priest says about this. Upto now he'd said 10th feb is like the best day ever for us!! Most auspicious as per me n my fiance's charts...

    Anyway! My trip to Delhi came at a weighty expense... 5 pounds up and after 22 days of being off track, im having trouble getting back on track! Just a few days more and I know I will have transitioned back into my full swing mode of diet and exercise :)

    Love and hugs!
