Warm water lime honey June 29, 2009

Just when I was beginning to seriously consider a weight-loss regime I came across this drink that many websites and testimony givers stated as a calorie burner. An interesting tangy concoction, if you can call it so, of warm water with lemon and honey. I found the first few glasses to be near revolting…probably bcoz I wasnt sure of what to expect. But then once this visual of the drink going down the system and hunting and burning those extra calories a.k.a convertible fats…the love for the drink happened. Every glass that I gulped looked like my fat-warrior with a single intent and purpose to make me lose that extra pound. What initially began as a day break drink slowly became an any-timer…be it at home or at work. Would you believe I actually have a small bottle of honey tucked away in my office cupboard now! The obsession grew as I noticed my trousers were no longer struggling to hug my waist and my hip belt showed I had lost an inch! Hmmm…and of course the drink wasnt the only reason behind the output…timely food, low carb intake, no snackees and more such desirable denials were all supportive of the slimming campaign. And yeah not to forget friends and colleagues who kept the feedback coming! And once I saw it on the mirror then the devil tookover and said ‘If it can be done once…it should be possible to do it anytime I want to…”…good for logical derivations but guess not for reality. Or maybe I will know it in the coming weeks when I am on my round two regime after having taken a silent sabbatical for a couple of weeks and after having invited some of the old fat friends back to areas where they previously belonged! I just finished a glass of WWLH…the first one in 3 weeks now…as I type this line and yeah its indeed a little revolting! Give me a week and I will again be in love with my fat-warriors. Pretty interesting how the human mind works! 

Will pickle again!

My Baby Turned 2! June 28, 2009

It was a long wait from the pregnancy test to the day my wife went into labour…and it was an even longer wait from that moment until the nurse brought a little bundle of joy out to show to the world! It was 7:28p.m on the 28th of June 2007. From then the words ‘long wait’ vanished and we woke up to find she had turned 2 overnight! Yes it used to be so cliched a statement when people said “time flies and they grow so fast”…and now its interesting that I say it to people and I know that people meant it when I was on the listening end. They indeed grow fast or just that they keep us so busy that we dont see time passing by! She is suddenly grown up and has a choice of what she wants to do and what she doesnt and knows her way to express that in words and action. Her own choice of TV shows, shoes, food, hairclips, people, friends and moods. She wants to be treated like an adult and loves being an adult herself when she sees babies and kids smaller than herself and tells them things that we tell her when she is at her naughtiest best. Yes! My baby’s turned 2…and dont tell her I called her ‘baby’. I dont think she would like to be called so!

All in the mind… June 27, 2009

Am still doing a catch up with pre-dated postings as you would see…we are in a new month and am yet to finish up the previous month. But well to think about it…the 3 to 4 day delay in the posting didnt really seem too big as long as the current day was in the same month as the ones that I am catching up with…but once the month shifted and a new calendar showed up on the homepage this morning, I suddenly feel it is a lot of work to finish up before I begin my posts for July. I am also beginning to think that it is the sheer sight of an empty calendar that is causing this guilt and tire…how I wish I had this posting done for today and had the 1st of July linked. The thought that it could actually be a few days from now before the July calendar came to life is actually causing even more pressure. But I would say its all in the mind…just the way there is this new theory of mine over Jackson’s cause for death that I framed over the weekend and shared with some colleagues on Monday and interestingly that theory has come up in one of the media stories this morning. Yeah thats a bit of a blowing the trumpet there! The theory simply reads that MJ was dead long before the drugs and docs did the job…I mean he was dead the day he announced the comeback tour looking more of a MJ lookalike with poor body language and badly orchestrated smiles and moves. For an artist of his breed, the sheer thought of “what if I screw up” would have been enough to kill him and the rehearsals he was in would have only helped amplify the thought of helplessness and threat of losing in the mind. Performing to pay back debts, and making that a comeback concert and a curtains concert was ingredient enough to kill him in the mind long before his body gave up! As much as living is a choice…I believe dying is a choice too. Well…its all in the mind…
