Paddling is fun to try

Friday, October 25, 2013

It's been a month I tried Paddling for the first time. Just froze for first 15 mins in kayak, as I was very afraid to paddle. I tensed up and sat there for ages. Slowly I pulled guts and started to push and paddle. I was stuck near a rock in 5 mins. Not sure I can come out without getting hurt. After 5 mins, a couple helped me out. Then I realized I need to loosen up and get ride of my unnecessary fear.

I slowly paddled along. I will stop few seconds and paddle again. I couldn't paddle continuously as it's upstream. I need to build my stamina. Slowly I'm getting tired but was out of fear and had fun paddling.

After some rest paddled back downstream. It seemed little easy and i thoroughly enjoyed. Want to try it again this year. Wish we can get little sun over the weekend....



Drinking water can be fun too

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Yesterday was a good day for me. Had some little fun drinking water. I couldn't believe myself , I drank about 22.75 glasses of water [i.e., 182 oz and 5.6 lt]. Normally I will make it to 12-15 glasses of water.

Most of the time I screw up my water intake when I miss my routine at home. But I tried to listen to my body and avoided temptations of having soda to quench my thirst.

With respect to food, I got little overboard with ice cream and pop corn. May be next time, I can just make myself to quit them from my mind.

Thinking of stopping to eat any sugary products in 2013 for some time. That will be no to all sugars like chocolates, ice cream, cakes, muffins and so on but YES to my favorite natural sweets - fruits, dates, honey. I could do that this year for close to 4 months + i guess. Want to do it again. Need my brain to listen to my heart in this...

    You will succeed. Make it a game just like you did with your water drinking! Happy new year!

A pleasant Day to Cherish

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Today is a pleasant and smooth one for me. I didn't hit too hard on me with unnecessary expectations or hard and fast rules. Just did whatever I felt like to do. I should say 4 days break gave enough to do all silly things and finally got me on track.

Did some clean up tasks which I been postponing for couple of weeks now. Had some heavy lunch (my bad, could not stop myself). Watched some movie. Then I did go out for a walk in my neighborhood. I explored Xmas beauty around here for more than an hour and returned home when my heart is content and I started to feel tired.

Now just had very light dinner and retiring to bed after this blog. Today I felt like instead of depending on others and getting disturbed for other person's actions, it will take less energy to dwell in my own actions and explore happiness in that.

Now closing on this happy note.
Merry Xmas to all of you. Hope you all had a wonderful one in your own enjoyable fashion.

Just Start it Now...

Thursday, May 10, 2012

To put it simple, I'm a person who always choose to do a thing right from tomorrow. Sometimes, we know our mistakes but lazy enough to snooze it off to later date..

I been in Spark people for more than a year now. Started off when I lost it up into a situation dragging my 188lbs along with me on a trail. I took couple of months to make it to 180lbs and there came a long pause. Again crawled up slowly to 178lbs. Dragged myself into act of mindless eating and made it back to 185 lbs.

Frustrated for reversing it all up, started again slowly and brought it below 180 mark. My irregular practices kept me bouncing back and forth on the scale between 175 - 178 and end up at 180 occasionally. 175 is the mark which appeared I couldn't go past it.

Some diet changes from this Jan got me to make it a habit & trailing on to 170lbs (which in my case became first mark to see if I will ever made it to). For more than a week, I couldn't believe my scale as it shows 170lbs. I was worried may be it working correctly or not. Today the Mark of 170 sink into me finally and made me accept the fact that I made to my first mark after all this time....

I like to be active, high-spirited and happy. But lately with all my life's happenings and stress outs of weight loss, family emotions and work pressures lost interest in everything and started accepting Life is boring. I used to always quote others that any comment or insult doesn't touch you unless you accept it yourself and start worrying about that. Slowly I started accepting that I'm a failure.

Today morning I realized how pathetic I ended up not able to believe myself even after seeing 170 in series for couple of days now.

I want to revive myself back into action. Start it Now, this very moment. So wanted to commit myself for change this very moment. So sat down to make promise to commit to me on this page.

Cheers for the start. Boarded on for the mission....

  Congratulations with your new resolve to just start it now. Isn't it wonderful that we get chances to start again when we go astray? I wish you all the best and will make this my new start also. emoticon
