#100WorkoutDays #Day1

Firstly, I feel like an idiot for disappearing, again! After all that gyaan I gave here, and to myself, in October, I still didn't find time to come back to this.
Secondly, it's both a shame (because I'm blogging because I have to) and a good thing that now I will HAVE TO post everyday, since I have taken up the #100WorkoutDays Challenge. It's not really a challenge per se, more of something I'd been wanting to start since a really long time, and today was as good any other. I hope I survive the challenge. :)

Damn, it's February 1!

And finally after days, weeks and months of postponing, I started working out. First day was good, I finally started! I did not do much, mostly tried to get my muscles to warm up for what's coming. 100 squats, some more warm up, some jumping jack, and I was set. Except, I wasn't.

So the worst part about today was the long flight of stairs I had to take while exiting IP Metro Station. For those of you who travel by metro, you may have an idea of what I am talking about. Anyway, the point is that my muscles were so stiff by the time I left for college that I could hardly move.The worse was coming down the stairs. At one point, it seemed almost impossible!

I have somehow got through the first day, and will hopefully rise and shine early tomorrow as well. However, I do feel stupid about starting on a weekend. Bye bye late Sundays, hello early morning workouts! And the tummy ache since yesterday evening isn't helping either. But, if I don't continue with this tomorrow, I know I will slack again.

So wish me luck, and hope that I can pull this off. I'm not expecting a very major before and after difference (considering I don't have much weight to lose; I'm 46kgs), but I will post a #Day100 picture, for sure. :D

Goodnight.

In mumbai, travelling by local trains is a 'great' way to exercise.

It has em all...cardios (running to catch the train), weight training (jostling for space) and steam baths (no need to explain this one).

Hey hey hey, I have the same feeling about Delhi DTC. (un)Fortunately, I don't get to travel in it anymore. Anyhow, I am liking this workout thing. Preps you nicely for the rest of the day.

"Committed"

No, I am not sharing my views on (not) being committed. Yes, this is one of my (vain) attempts to keep this blog alive. No, I have not made any effort of writing in the past few months even though I had all the time. Yes, that is certainly not a very good thing. So, this is a book review. Well, not really a review, just a few words here and there since I finally managed the onerous task of finishing reading this mostly boring book. Just a few things that will stay with me. Ok fine. Yes, this is a book review.

A brief background about how I came to read this book. My dear friend for almost six years now gifted me this this Valentine's Day (much to my surprise as I did not expect him to actually take into consideration my all-time love for Eat, Pray, Love) and hoped this would give me some insight on our 'future'. Marriage was always on the cards albeit things have been extremely rocky lately. This was supposedly my anchor to rough…

Gyaan and Geisha

Happy New Year?

Not really. It's a new year, alright. Not all that happy though. Hoping a bad start leads to a better end.

Anyhow, it's good to be back after a year. I think this has become more of an annual ritual for me now which, to say the least, is extremely disappointing. And since even this post is rushed, I will only say the things I absolutely want to.

A dear friend gifted a copy of 'Memoirs of a Geisha' to me for my 26th birthday (yes, that happened :/) and needless to say, I am thankful to him for more than one reason. Firstly, it took away the most tedious task of choosing what to read, which is what takes (wastes?) most of my time. I ABSOLUTELY cannot make up my mind about what I want to read. End result? Piles of unread dusty books. Since that was taken care of, all I needed to do was be diligent enough to find time to read it. And I did! In less than a week! You see, that's the thing about a good book, you just cannot keep it down till you're do…

Silver

I'll be 25 in another two weeks, and for some unfathomable reason, I am pretty excited about this one. My birthdays are not really something I look forward to, and that's because of a lot of reasons- you keep building the hype for months and weeks and days and everything is over in just 24 hours, just like that, phoo; some calls never come, and you keep waiting till the end of the day, this thing constantly ticking at the back of you head; some unsaid expectations are not met, even though consciously you are not aware of these, but your heart shrinks when 'these things' don't happen.

That being said, this year has been quite a roller-coaster ride already, and there is not much to lose at this point in time. Hence the excitement. I've also made a special effort to clear the clutter, from my mind and physical space around me, just to make sure there is only good energy around my silver. And there are some little things that I have in mind to do for myself this b…
