lately i have been trying to regularise things in my life. OH! hell it’s tough. It all started with an initiative at work. One of our director’s happened to read “Doesn’t lose your mind. Lose your weight” by Rujuta Diwekar. (Here’s here blog http://rujutadiwekar.blogspot.com/)He got totally inspired by it and started following what it recommended. Me – being the part of the enthu group (as my MD likes to call us) and desperately in need of losing weight and de-toxifying myself from a year load of medication, pushed him to take a session on ‘healthy living’.
The ball started to roll from that day and has not stopped till date. So it started from eating every two hours (OH yes! it’s fun, and can be really painful as one needs to think what to eat! I had my apprehensions and so I decided to read the book myself. Trust me, noone has ever made eating healthy sound so much fun and funny! I think she has good content to start her own stand-up comedy club. So while we struggled to eat every two hours, some of us also decided to start exercising togather.
Once again our healthy director decided to volunteer and teach us yoga in the morning. So while around 30 people attended his lecture, 3 of us turned up for yoga at 5:30 in the morning. It’s only been 5 days and I already see my mind changing the way it thinks.
> everytime he starts an aasan you feel, this is so not possible. But when you start doing it, you realise nothing is impossible.
> my biggest fights with myself begin from the moment i wake up to the moment i get into the car. Every thing seems fine and flows in a beautiful rhythm after that.
> it’s all the mind’s play. The body is merely a vehicle of what you want it to do.
> Some think waking up is difficult and some other’s like me wake up twice – thrice in the night thinking it 5am and I am getting late!
Life has suddenly changed from waking up 7:30am to waking up at 5:00am! While I sincerely hope that this is what life looks like for years to come, I am scared that the rains and the eagerly awaited break is going to spoil this routine.
