In Mumbai, where I live, summer is setting in, and how! At the gym today, with the air-conditioners in full blast, members, including yours truly, were all sweating and sighing as the heat outside threatened to derail our motivation and goals.
I huffed and I puffed, and eventually managed to put in 9 exercises, with 2 sets of each (15 reps), before calling it quits. My hand towel was completely drenched and my 500 ml. bottle had got over some minutes ago! The bath after the exercise did not refresh much; it merely served to get rivers of sweat out of my face and body. Who needs steam in such conditions? (Our humidity is above 65% anyway, and touches almost 100 % in the rainy season (monsoon).
With such profuse sweating, one should have thought that one could lose weight easily, the appetite having fallen as well, but - things aren't that easy, you know. I have fight left in me, and by God, I am not going to give up as yet.
