In several of my posts earlier, I have shared about my tiny steps into the world of gardening. And if I have to name one person who motivates me to do so, it’s my Deuta (that’s what we call our father in Assamese). He loves (more…)
Coconut water, no less than an elixir for me, is the ultimate summer drink and offers a much better & tastier alternative to both water and soda infused fizzy drinks. This is a natural drink that provides a whole range of health benefits. I prefer it over any other cooling drink, any day. And with its health benefits, its a win-win situation. 🙂
I have once shared my gym woes (post here) and my forever lasting struggles with doing exercise and other healthy stuff like that. However, this time I have decided to set small and do-able goals for myself and push myself a bit more every time I achieve them. This I think will give me the sense of satisfaction as well as the zeal to push myself a lil’ higher. For now, I have started with waking up early (now that’s a huge task for someone who wakes up at 8-8.30 everyday!) and going for walks in the morning (for about an hour). Hopefully I can keep this routine going until I go for my next step. Wish me luck guys! 🙂 (more…)
I came across the blog of an interesting lady Rohina (who blogs at http://nerdydevi.wordpress.com/) through that of my friend Anannya (who blogs at ODDS AND ENDS). Rohina has taken up a unique project in her blog called THE UN-FAIR PROJECT. Check out the three posts she had done till now where she had featured some very gorgeous & beautiful ladies – Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
I cannot say for the rest of the world, but in and around me I have seen many a times people considering only women with fair skin, good height, sharp features, long silky hair – to be a beautiful one. Anyone (more…)
Yes, I know that with the mercury levels rising every day (not to mention the amount of sweat produced) there is nothing much to love about summers. But then every season has its own goodness and shortcomings too. Here is what I currently love about the season – (more…)
I came across this interesting & very informative post about adrenal fatigue in the blog of Random House India. It’s called THE LOVE DIET QUIZ.

I had never come across this medical condition earlier. So, I went ahead & took the quiz & I was glad to find that I am still in the safer zone.
Here are the details of the test – (more…)
I came across these lines in a blog (Monday Notes) & could not help but laugh aloud at the irony of the fact-
“I think we can agree on the fact that going to the gym is among the stranger activities humankind engages in. The whole concept of going to a closed room to move and sweat and be physically active, in order to make up for the rest of the day spent in other closed rooms where you don’t move and don’t sweat and aren’t physically active is somewhat bewildering”.
I am a foodie and can never think to cut down on all the goodies. Whenever I try to control eating something, my craving levels reach an all time high. But then, I want a perfect body too – not a model-like body but a fit/toned one. Yes, I know both cannot be balanced together. However I try to make efforts. 😛 I have not yet succeeded in landing myself in a gym (since I cannot spare time in the evenings & am a late riser….and yes, I know these are not convincing enough excuses). Oh no, wait. I did land once, but the gym got closed down after a week or so I joined with a friend of mine. So I guess this cannot be counted. Poor me!
Every now & then, I do try to follow simple weight loss techniques which fits my bill. Suryanamaskar, walking, lemon water with honey in the morning, lower intake of calories in the evening, small & frequent meals a day, eating fruit whenever i crave for junk food…… I have tried them all. But then, even those last only for a few days as the initial enthusiasm fizzes out after sometime. I somehow manage to find excuses to skip the routines and soon I give up. 😦 Maybe it is the monotony which does not settle down well in my system, i don’t know.
However the efforts are still on. One day, I hope to find that one routine which I can stick to & of which I can reap the benefits. I am hopeful……and optimistic. 🙂
Do share if you have any ideas for me 😉
