Lets Do This: day 8

What a busy day it was!

Feels like it was only a few hours ago that I jumped out of bed in the morning. The day today went unnoticed and I certainly do not think that is a very good thing but it is what it is. I am sure this happens with a lot of people who work and commute to work in public transports that the day turns into night which then turns into a week and before you know it a year has gone. Once  that happens we get crazy and bombed with the negligible things we did last year and hence we  make new year resolutions to make “this” year count and we slip into our same old boring routine only after 10 days.

What is the issue with us? Why do we only do things when there is pressure. I think we all should learn and teach our mind muscles to be more proactive on a regular day to day life and only then we will be able to do things we really should be doing.

As a part of my regime, I did get up at 4:50 Am today and did some home workout and also I ate healthy the whole day. But even said that, I was actually feeling that these YouTube home videos are actually mediocre workout and my body is used to the rigorous drill.Hence, I feel I have to include more running into my daily workouts rather than only running on the weekends.

An inside : I have downloaded an app called “5 minutes journal” and I am loving it. I actually started writing my morning journal in this rather than in my diary and this morning I had three goals to accomplish to make this day an amazing day and those were-

  1. Great workout – done
  2. Solving a work related problem – well, lets talk about this later
  3. reaching home on time – done

So that is a good score. ins”t it?

Lets Do This: day 7

Its a sad day!

hith-dark-day-157637737-E

I do not want to write about my regime today. Did I wake up early? Did I exercised? As that does not matter. what matters right now for me to stay afloat, to not get bogged down, to continue fighting  and to be waiting for the ray of light in this darkest hour.

I can not share much about my feelings with you all on this blog but all I can say is some times I get tired and I feel that I have done enough and now I have to only wait for things to turn out good, which is never a good way to live life as before you even begin you have given the control to ”Destiny’ which plays by his own rules.

One vote of advice I will give today is: If something bad is happening in your life and stopping you from swimming to the shore but you are getting the sinking feeling like you are just dawning into deep ocean then let it be. Its best to feel the sadness now rather then telling yourself lies that this is going to be Okay and that I am fine and that it does not matter a lot to me. Because when you do not believe in the pain then at the same time you do not believe in the hope. Let it be. If you are sad then just acknowledge the feeling and listen to its voice and bare with it. keep it alive in you like a burning candle which will eventually show you a path but yes its important to have one eye at the shore as you do not want to drift too far in the feeling that coming back will take more than anticipated time.

The funda here is that, if you are sad then its okay to be sad and cry your eyes and at the same time allow only a day or two for this and snap out of the sad ritual once you have done mourning and then do not go back to that emotion.

Lets Do This: day 6

First Weekend!

Does it happen with you that you follow all rules about diet and exercise all week and as weekend comes you see yourself slipping from one cheat meal to second. It surely happens with me. So today I decided that I wont sleep in rather I got up at 6 AM and went for run. Can you believe it?

I also ate organic, low carb and healthy diet the whole day. Well, almost the whole day. I wanted to draft everything I took but forgot to take pictures. But here is one picture of my glamorous morning Veg Smoothie

One advice: If you are adding celery into smoothie then make sure it is pureed nicely or else like me you will be eating a lot of celery sticks in smoothie and it aint fun.

Lets do this: Day 5

Some Loss Some WIn

I think 5th day was very easy in terms of getting up early and kicking some ass in the morning. However, it was very tough in night while eating a clean dinner. I proudly started my day with a very good workout and I am sharing the link of my workout for anyone who is looking for some exercise at home. Not just ANY exercise but really good tonic exercise then they should take a look at the workout video.

When you start your day with some good kick-ass workout then for sure the whole day goes smoothly. You will have more energy to complete more tasks, you will be more focused and you will have less craving for food. It definitely happens with me. My day was good with good office work, one -o-one discussions with my team and lot of data analysis and I didn’t get tired but I came home to Kachoris.  I tried to fight with my mom that I wont eat all that stuff since it would do no good to me but looks like at times you just can not win a conversation. So I had it. Half kachori. 😦
