Day 2: this is on my mind today

This is on my mind today so here goes day 2:

Now let’s me honest here- the one thing I need to work on most is my health. I am being nice to me and not just saying my weight is my biggest issue.

Every time I take one step forward, I take 2 steps back. Life in general happens and I forget. People say I can be determined when I want. I don’t see it…

Exercising is not a way of life for me. Eating healthy is an effort. Control is not my middle name.

I hate admitting all this in a public forum. I feel this makes me a lesser person. I don’t even know the purpose of this blog post but whatever…

Hey you,

It’s me – the person who probably knows you the best.

You will be 30 soon-yes, it’s more than a year away but a little advance planning has never hurt. It’s also the end of the year when you receive your annual assessment.

You started off the year well – you lost weight, had a healthy glow, the two of you made your home look so pretty. everything was organized. This looked like the year of growing up – didn’t it?

But life is never going to keep it that easy is it? There has to be the But

There came the change at the work place and the words “work life balance” seemed as mythical as the gardens of Babylon. Exercise was screwed up, the kilos piled on, you were exhausted, the organized life took a toss. and it’s all back to square one. The good work done “for you” was wiped off!

But i am so proud of how hard you worked this year – especially in the second half and it has been tough. I was there with you when u shed tears in the bathroom at being denied 12 days leave instead of 10 days! I was there when you were expected to work despite being unwell and there when you were given all the useless gyaan by so-called wise people. I was there when he called up every 15 mins to follow-up on your work.

But boy am i proud of how well you handled him, am i proud of how hard you have worked this year…But babe u need to take a decision and you know it.

So before you turn 30 – yes, it is more than a year away…but then again a little advance planning has never hurt anyone

  • Take a decision on your work – think about your priorities – maybe this role is fantastic but is it worth all that it demands. Take a decision and bear the consequences, don’t be miserable no more
  • Get a little more organized at home. Go grocery shopping else you will order in. Make your home pretty and for chriss sakes…put the goddamn paintings up
  • Exercise – at least some everyday – stop making excuses…at least 15 mins..you owe it to the girl who wants to wear those really cool clothes which are available only in smaller sizes
  • Take the steps at work…some part of your body will thank you
  • Swim – You love it so why not?
  • You are growing old – and yes your skin is well-behaved but stop taking it for granted. Be regular with removing makeup and moisturizing..and yes wear sun screen…ooh ooh is brushing your teeth at night asking for too much
  • Call the grannies more often. You know how happy they sound when you call. and while you are at do call the MIL more often. She is family
  • Eat fruits as a habit, not an obligation. Vege’s will do you good too and do you think you can say goodbye to aerated drinks – pesticides, sugar etc.
  • Pre-pay your home loan
  • Dress up once in a while – it wont kill you
  • Read more
  • Sleep more
  • Blog more and keep it true to you
  • Watch less TV, STOP playing Facebook games and Facebook snooping…in short I am telling you to get a life
  • Laugh and live it up. Be the positive person you are!
  • So here you are – bringing in your last year in the twenties and i am rooting for you girl!

    Love Me
