Things you should avoid doing in the gym

There is a hell lot of annoying and unnecessary things that people do in the gym which pisses off others. Maybe you do it unintentionally but always keep a check on yourself that you are not doing any of these in the gym. And I know there are people who do it intentionally and won’t budge until someone asks them to.

1.    Stop relaxing on the machines if you are not using them

This is really annoying and stupid of people who keep sitting on the machines and surfing their unnecessary Facebook or talking on the phone. And don’t get up until someone asks them to.

2.    Walking on the treadmill while talking on the phone

Some people do it just for the sake of it and walk on the treadmill for a longer duration while chitchatting on the phone. It is not going to help you lose your calories much. You are just annoying the person who is waiting to use it after you are done with your unnecessary talks.

3.    Interfering with your not so important advice.

Yes, people do this. They interfere in your exercises while you are pushing it real hard. Maybe, they find it cool or like doing some social service but really the trainer is there to do this. Sometimes it is okay if the trainer is not around and someone is new to the gym. But not always, please stop being so nosy.

4.    Stop taking naps on yoga mat

Really, why the hell people do this? If you are not in the mood of exercising or just tired, no one is forcing you to do it just go back to your home and stop being a lazy ass in the gym. I have seen people doing this. I thought okay maybe it is shavasana but then 10 minutes later they are still lying at the same place with the same position. Please, you are using the space just to take a nap that too in the gym.

5.    Leave your laziness at the home

If you really want to see the results and want to lose that belly fat or your cellulite. Just leave your laziness back at the home before going to the gym. Because you also know it is your worst enemy ever. Laziness is the one which is stopping you from achieving your goals. If possible leave your smartphone too with the laziness; it can distract you from your goals. Push yourself real hard in the gym; go for that last rep and if possible extra reps too. Run that extra mile which you are not able to do. Complete that last set of squats or triceps. It is always extra hard work which shows the magic and you are going to love yourself more after achieving that flat belly or those six pack abs which you always wanted.

How to Lose Weight: The Easiest Way

Okay! So this is a tried and tested method and I am not goofing it up. I have tried it myself and succeeded in achieving my goal to a certain extent. Also, it needs a bit of patience like every amazing thing you want to achieve needs. It won’t give you quick results and you might also not witness a lot of change but the weighing machine will definitely show it. And your old pair of jeans which you loved but could not wear because of your bulging tummy will also give you that feel.

Now, we get to the point straight no more exaggerations. So, here is the deal:

One thing that can help you lose the 2-3 kgs a month is Water. Yes, plain and simple water. Drink as much water as you can. But, what is more, important is the timing of drinking water which affects a lot in our digestive system. Water is one of the main and most important substances which helps in digesting the food we eat. An adult human body contains 60 per cent water on an average, which results in half of your body weight.

The leaner a person is more water his or her body contains. That means people who are obese or fat have less amount of water than they should have ideally. This happens because fatty tissues contain less water as compared to lean tissues. I don’t know much about tissues and biology; you can read about it more on Google if you want to.

So, the important point is you should drink lots and lots of water on daily basis. It will be difficult to drink 2-3 liters of water in the starting, but gradually it will become a lot easier and habitual too. Water detoxifies your body and removes all the dirt and unnecessary fats from your body.

Benefits of drinking more water

  1. It gives a natural glow to your skin. Everyone knows that water is the only natural cleanser for cleaning anything your car, bike, house, clothes etc. The quality of cleanliness water give cannot be substituted with anything. So, when you use water to clean everything else, why don’t you use water to clean your inner body parts? The quality of glow and shine water will give cannot be substituted with any artificial drinks, face wash or cleansers.
  2. It also helps in removing the acne, pimples, and marks from your face. Water will give a natural glow to your face as well as it will decrease all the acne or marks you have. It will also improve the complexion of your skin by making it flawless. But, it will take some time and you have to be patient about it.
  3. Water flushes out all the toxins which promote weight loss.
  4. It will keep your body hydrated and full of energy.
  5. Drinking more water helps in digestion and constipation a lot. Those who constipation should drink 2-3 liters of water daily or more if you can.

When to and when not to drink water

In the morning when you wake up the first thing you should do is drink water. Drink at least 2-3 glasses of water just after you wake up. What I do is, I keep a one-liter bottle just beside my bed in the night before going to sleep and sometimes if I need to drink in the mid of the night I sip from it. And the rest of it I drink in the morning just after waking up. It makes our body hydrated and less sleepy. This part helps the most in losing weight just by drinking water. If you want you can also add the juice of half lemon and honey with hot water. It will remove all the toxins and fasten the weight loss process.

The timing of drinking water is also important and by timing, I don’t mean there is fixed timetable to drink water to reduce weight. By timing, I mean before and after having your lunch, dinner or any meal of the day. You should not drink much water just before a meal. You can have a glass of water or half before the meal if you want to. But, you should not drink water just after having your lunch or dinner. One should wait at least 30 minutes after having food because if you drink immediately after eating it will affect your digestion. There are many kinds of juices that our stomach secrets which help in breaking down the food. But, if you mix the water with it slows down the process which can also make you feel bloated.

There is also another important thing that is; you should not drink chilled or cold water or any other cold drink after eating something oily or cheesy and also along with it. For instance, you should not drink Coke or Pepsi when you are having your cheese burst pizza. This is because cold drinks will make it hard to digest the food; also aerated drinks have gas in it which causes bloating. You should never cold drinks with hot junk foods. You can have hot coffee or tea if you want something to drink. But cold drinks are complete no. Similar to cold drinks chilled water too has same effects, but if you want you can have a sip or two of normal water. This point applies to all the oily stuff and junk food that you eat.

So, if losing weight without hard work or exercise is your goal start drinking 2 to 3 liters of water daily and increase it to 3 to 4 liters later on. And if it helps you in any way, please do tell me in the comments section below.

Happy New Year : New Beginning

One hour more and another year will be over. This date, this time, will never be back and we won't be able to live this moment ever again. It will only be read as history in old newspapers or books. Time flies, it is really true. 2015 went by so fast that it seems it was just yesterday 2014 ended but it is already a year long.

It feels the time is flying away from my life but, I am still where I was. I never made any new year resolutions but this year might be different or maybe just like any other year, I always thought the coming year will be different. But this time, I am more determined to change my life. Maybe, it will really be different. Who knows what God’s plans are for my coming year. :P 

Like everyone else, I too again want to change a few bad habits like sleeping late and waking up late, procrastinating things, laziness, etc. In the coming year I have decided to pursue new hobbies like learning guitar, but first of all, I have to buy a guitar. Then I want to buy a DSLR camera and there are a lot more things I want to do, like building castles in the air. (Lolz .. :D)

These desires will never end, I know. Let's just see what 2016 is bringing for me. Hope it will be something good and exciting, and not boring like 2015. 2015 is just about to end in 15 minutes more, I can already listen the sound of crackers from outside. Yes, I am not having any new year bash like always. This year I have decided to sleep early but it seems I am already late. So bye bye 2015.

I wish a very Happy 2016 to all of you. May this year be your best till now and you achieve whatever you desire for. :)

Happy New Year

Skywatch Friday : Sunset Silhouette

Deer Lake, Hauz Khas Village (Delhi, India)

This is the most serene and beautiful place in Delhi. Always been my favorite ever since I had a visit for the first time. It is just different and not Delhi type. It feels like you have come to altogether a different state (ignore some stupid Delhi people around :P). It lets me be stay calm in my own dreamland of nature. 

This picture was taken in summers during one of my trip to the place with my friends. And it is captured on a mobile camera of one of my friend by me of course. I am yet to buy a DSLR :P

PS: It will be my first blog post from mobile. And it's not so feeling good posting from mobile.

PPS: Merry Christmas to all my visitors. May this one be your best till now and Santa gives you all that you wishes for :)

The God's Word

Aisha was dejected and broken from inside, tears were rolling down her cheeks, as she stood on the staircase of yet another office where she got rejected for a job. She was really disappointed with herself and almost lost hope of achieving anything in her life. She was feeling exhausted and didn’t want to try anymore for anything. She just wanted to do nothing at all, she was left with no energy within her to try anymore. She was crying, uncontrollably. 

Then, she heard someone’s steps behind her and tried to control herself, wiped off the tears but, still the guy understood that she was crying.
Aisha looked at him from the corner of her eyes and immediately recognized him. He was the same guy who went for the interview next to her. He came to her and said:

Hey, don’t get dejected it was just another job you deserve better than this.  You were not meant to be here, you will find your destination. Whenever you get rejected somewhere or failed in something, just remember it was not meant for you. You deserve something better than this. Never lose heart for the small failures you face and there is no such thing as big failures. There is always something better waiting for you next door. Just keep looking around and never get too much disappointed. Because, too much disappointment and negativity makes you weak and distracts from performing your part well, that is hard work and hard work only. Just keep going and you will reach your destination one day.

He puts her arm around her shoulder to calm her down and left from there.  Aisha kept looking him going downwards, but could not say anything at all. She was feeling energized and motivated again. She ran downwards to thank him but could not find him anywhere. He was like an angel, whom God has sent for her to calm her down.

Falling apart

I know it’s time
For me to stop, for you to go on.

I know it’s time
To not give, to not expect.

I know it’s time
To let you be careless, to be ignorant

I know it’s time
For me to care less, think less and feel less.

I know it’s time
To move on and go away from you
Because, it won’t matter to you.

I know it is easier said than done
I know I should not care, but I still do.

I know I should not love
But I still do and will do.

I hate goodbyes. I just can’t do it. It is always the other person who had to do it if they must. Most of the times goodbyes are unsaid and these are more painful than the ones that are said. Because you always have that hope of their returning back to you, but usually they don’t. And even if they do, it is not the same person that you know earlier.

I saying goodbye to someone is of no use because I always turn back to them to say a hello or to know how are you? These goodbyes I am referring not only to your loved ones, but there are unsaid goodbyes between the friends also. Your school or college or just any friend who promised to stay by your side always, but then everyone gets busy in the hustle-bustle of their own life, make new friends and then you never talk again and lose contacts. But thanks to Mark Zuckerberg, he made a wonderful thing called Facebook. Now, you can find them but only if you can still recognize them in their display pictures and if you have the patience to scroll down to the list of hundreds of profiles with the same name.

There are also some friends, whom you say goodbye no matter how many times, but you always drift back in a year or two or sometimes more. These are my favorite people. I think even I am also one of these because I usually don’t lose phone numbers and I always save it somewhere or maybe just because of my good memory. Good memory, I must say is not always a good thing to have. Because it also not lets you forget the bad memories or the things you want to forget.

But one should never say goodbye to the ones they can’t do without, no matter what the circumstances are. I think if you really want them in your life you can always manage things and try harder. Maybe, I am not right completely because one cannot change the destiny and sometimes goodbye is the only option left. In the end, I would say goodbyes are the hardest part of my life but somehow it always comes back in my life with one or another face.

I wonder why we have feelings. Life would have been much simpler and less complicated if we didn’t have any feelings in the first place. They make everything so messed up. Some days I feel happy the other days sad and frustrated. Though, sad is not the right word, it is a weird feeling. It feels like there is nothing good in life to be happy about. I don’t understand why it happens like, yesterday I was feeling everything is just perfect and right now I am feeling nothing is right, there is a lot that need changes in my life, in me, my attitude, in everything. Maybe it has something to do with being positive and negative. But these all are just feelings again, why do we have them?

My life would have been much different if I didn’t have them. There would have been much fewer problems, no mood swings, no complications, no unnecessary over thinking nothing useless. I think all these feelings waste our time and become a distraction between what we actually want to do.

I know this is just unnecessary stuff I am writing, but I have to write because I don’t have anyone to speak about it or maybe no one will understand. Again, it’s my feelings which I feel no one will be able to understand. I wonder is it even possible to understand what exactly someone feels because everyone has a different mind and different perception. You can express what you feel, but you cannot be sure of what the other understands.

Many a times we say to our closed ones that “you will not understand it”, I think it is true no one understand what are the actual feelings they just empathize with us. Recently, read about “alter ego” – a close friend who thinks or feels similarly to the way you think or feel. Is it really true do people have such friends in their life? I don’t have anyone like that or maybe I am not good in expressing my feelings that’s why they don’t understand.

Alter ego have another meaning too which means the opposite side of one’s personality, I think this alter ego I have. :D No, I don’t have any split personality disorder but I guess everyone have two sides of their personality, one which they shows to everyone and the other which they don’t show to anyone or shows to only closed ones.

But still I feel the feelings are unnecessary. (Again, I feel the feeling of feeling being useless :P) Do we have another word for the word ‘feeling’? Oh God, someone, please help me with my vocabulary. Anyways, enough of feelings now I am getting sleepy feeling because it's 2 am right now and just today I checked that most of my blog posts are uploaded in the mid of the night, such an insomniac I am. I think this insomnia is also a problem that I over think and get different feelings. Whatever it is, after typing all this useless stuff I am feeling good and I think I am back to normal mode. And for this my blog and this laptop deserves a big thank you. 

PS: A big thanks to you too, yes you the one who is reading this, my generous readers. Thank you for reading.
