Gym woes

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 😉
