How I Started a New day – Day 8

leave a comment »

Hang on I did not stop my jogging. I am back on track after 8 days gap. I don’t want to give reasons of why I could not do jogging. I know nothing can stop me if I really want to do except myself.

I don’t expect wonders out of jogging like reducing weight by 5 kg or so. I do it to keep myself active, light & energetic. Surely my investment of time & energy will give best results later in life.

I felt that today’s speed of jogging was not as good as previous days. The gap was the main reason. I don’t feel guilty about not keep my own commitment as there is no point of feeling guilty now. As the phrase says ‘Actions speaks louder than words’.

What if you miss one day still there is another day to do what you love to do 🙂

Jogging speed: 5 min/ round

Duration: 25 mins (5 rounds)

We “SOLD” our TELEVISION

with 2 comments

Surprised!

My friends, family and colleagues in office were surprised when I announced that we sold our Television. My husband’s friend once came home and was jaw stuck to know the box now gone forever!!! Poor Guy, He wanted to watch cricket that very moment.

Others gave lot of suggestions to retract the decision. But the decision was made to sell as we wanted peace at home not 24×7 chatter box.

“You watch TELEVISION to turn your brain off and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”

— Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computer and Pixar, in Macworld Magazine, February 2004

Reasons why we decided to RIP our beloved TELEVISION:

Time

– None can bargain anything for time especially when it comes to watching the idiot box play for whole day, 30 days a month. As a result, we sometime complain about our family members not giving time to us.

Ever imagined how recreation for small duration actually eats up large chunks of our valuable time relaxing out butt and watch the world on tube.

If we can abstain ourselves during school exams then why not abandon it forever? Why do we start counting it as another member of the house who only talks and we listen to?

Can a picture tube replace meeting friends, seeing places, talking to your family members or knowing thyself?

A thing of ‘stress buster’ turns out to be a ‘clutter house of distress’!!!

Unhappiness

– Channels taking birth today can compete against any country’s birth rate.

Different people with different demands to watch different channels.

Result: Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness.

Watching television today limits the thinking power of young children.

Irritation

– ‘a little knowledge is a dangerous thing’. Other thing that gets added with this little knowledge includes:

– Pain in the eyes

– back pain

– introvert nature

– Passive thinking

– wasting time

Ever imagined, what can go wrong in your life in absence of Television?

One thing for sure, you’ll learn new things, have time for yourself and family and live life free.

P.S. – I would like to thank my husband Rahul for taking out time and reviewing, editing my post 🙂

How I Started a New day – Day 7

I understood the meaning of word ‘Technique’.

Today while jogging I changed my posture & bent little front to get the speed equal to my husband. Actually running in this posture increased my speed considerably.  In result you can run faster than your normal speed.

No wonder I could complete the same round in 2 minutes & finished jogging in 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes

How I started a New day – Day 6

leave a comment »

How I am alive without morning tea? I never imagined my days  without a strong cup of tea.

Eventually new habits will turn into new lifestyle which will benefit in long run. Was it difficult? I don’t think so. Quitting any habit which you think is not good for you are really easy, the difficult part is to maintain them & that’s what my trial with this jogging exercise & morning tea. I want to see how long I can continue jogging without any long break. I agree that there will be breaks but that should not affect my habit.

Another most important thing about jogging or any other exercise is to have proper sport wears else you will start disliking exercise. Today I had experience the same, wearing a long t-shirt which was very thick because I did not pay attention towards my t-shirt. That caused me lot of irritation 😦

I swear jogging cannot be done without any good sport wear. You must have it.

This Diwali I will gift myself or will ask my husband to present a good Nike sport wear 🙂

Jogging speed: Constant

Rounds: 5 (4 minutes / round)

How I started a New day – Day 5

leave a comment »

It’s 5th day that I have started jogging. No wonder I could jog continuously for 20 min. without any breaks. Now the challenge is to maintain it & slowly increase the jogging limit. There are many ways to keep motivated however I need to explore different ways, need to implement new ideas to make jogging as fun & exciting activity.

Today I was thinking about how can i do it?

Chennai is blessed with second largest beach in Asia then why not give a try to go jogging on seashore. I & my husband decided that coming Saturday we will visit Marina beach & experience the sunrise. It’s going to be excited because first time I will be jogging on seashore plus I will see the sunrise. It reminded me the Diveagar trip . I experienced the dawn from the cottage near seashore in Diveagar, Pune.

One of the best track to experience jogging 🙂

My Previous days are here 1, 2, 3 & 4

How I started a New day – Day 4

leave a comment »

The ideal competition should be with your past records.

I do jogging on road which is surrounded with a huge building. I can finish one round in 4 mins.

In last three days (1, 2 & 3) I finished jogging in 4 rounds. Today I increased the limit by one round.

Looking at my husband who left me far behind I just wanted to be at his level. But I was exhausted with 4 rounds. I just told myself to relax for a while & take a long breath. I took a break & made up my mind to complete 5th round. Consciously I did the last round because I don’t want to do anything wrong in hurry or excitement to carry injuries for a long run. After a break I got good amount of strength to cover the last round. Finally I felt that I won my own competition. It was exciting to see breaking your own records.

Now I made a record of jogging for 20 minutes! Next record should be 20 minutes without a break 🙂

How I started a New day – Day 3

leave a comment »

Have you ever done jogging while it was drizzling?

Fortunately today I did it. 5:30AM when wakeup call rang I was out of my bed. Was it difficult to get out of cozy bed? Yes but how much time it takes to decide you? Hmmm may be a second or two. That is where your determination comes & you make choice.

I choose to make my day excited & worth living. I am going to continue jogging till it becomes habit. I am going to have hot water & honey instead of tea till it becomes habit. Why am I changing the old habits because I don’t want to listen from a doctor any surprises about my health. If I have build stamina over a period of time then why should not I maintain it? Exercise excites me, keep me fit then why to give any kind of excuse of not doing it.

Here is my previous posts which where I lived my new day – one & two without any excuse 🙂
