Back to Desi Ghee
I shunned Desi Ghee because of the misconceptions that it causes weight gain. I am back to Desi Ghee , I hope to make my food more yumm and lose more weight with its use. You can read the benefits of Desi Ghee here.
Taking 40-50 steps after every half an hour
This really is not a Lifestyle change for me. Given my impatience, I can’t sit for more than half hour or so :P. However, when zonked with work, I sometimes glue to my Lappi for hours sometimes :(. But now I make it a point to just take a few steps and get back to work !
Taking Stairs instead of Lift
I am too lazy to take stairs but not to use treadmill in the gymn. Lol, may be because I have paid for the gymn ;). Now I use Lift only when I am loaded with grocery bags and I need to climb up three floors ! Phew such hard work na 😉
Keeping my phone on SILENT while sleeping
I am still trying to change my habit of sleeping late. I am out and out , a night person. I know it’s bad, trying my best to change my habit. However, I have started putting my phone on silent mode. Otherwise, my whatsapp buzzes and I wake up. I might be sleepy to wake up but my mind for once wonders “who could have buzzed ?” :P.
Sleeping for 7-8 hours is must for Good Health and Weight Loss.
Lastly, I have learnt to say Noooooooooooooooooooo , a big No you see !
I have come home for a week and whenever I am pushed (read tortured) to visit some relatives or neighbors(read aunties who are better detectives than Sherlock Holmes) , they serve cold drinks or some sweets or chips. Phew ! Let me tell you how learning to say NO has helped.
Aunty – Please have this cold drink
Tarun – No Aunty , I just had Tea
Aunty – So what, its so hott. Cold drink will cool you. See, you are sweating so much.
Tarun (as soon as Aunty gets up, to fetch cold drink) – Aunty , I don’t drink cold drink.
Aunty – Oooh. Juice(read canned juice) ?
Tarun – With both my hands in air
Aunty looks confused , I love the expression ;). After some seconds of serious thinking –
Aunty – Neebu Paani ?
Tarun – Aaaah , now you are talking (in my mind). OK(in a low voice). But no sugar please
Aunty can now faint with all the nakhraaas. I dont mind though 😛
You see how it helps ! I am not going to put junk in my body to please someone. If the person is a well wisher, he or she will understand. If not, I don’t mind them bitching at my back 😉
