To a healthier better me – My birthday resolutions

I am a big big girl, in this big big world, its (any issue) not a big big thing, come on bring it on to me..

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

Yeah , it’s my birthday week . he he he 🙂  I usually celebrate my birthday the whole week. So now that I have stepped on to the second quarter of my life , or to say I am crossing mid twenties/late twenties and rushing towards 30s  but instead of focusing on anti-ageing treatments to disguise my age , I am putting my energies to a very obvious thing that unfortunately I had been ignoring from long time.

Family, friends, long lost friends, colleagues, acquaintances, well wishers, everyone showed their immense love on my birthday. They wished me happiness, prosperity and good health. I have been saying this on my blogs over and over again, but yeh ! I am confessing even I have tendency to walk over it (bad bad girl). I am blessed I always get cooked ready to serve – excuses to put my health not on top priority.

Well, I’ll be honest; it’s not that I’m not capable of committing and following through – anything that I have decided for myself. I don’t bind myself with point to point resolutions, but it’s too easy to slip in my comfort zone crushing my all healthy thinking’s 😦 . I am going to experience a 360 degree turn soon in my life (keep guessing 😉 ) transitions have already started then why not fixing my health status.

Being a woman, I sincerely apologize; I am adding few more vanity (mind, body and soul) changes in my resolution cart.

Here I am  with my resolution cart :

  1. To take good care of my health

a)      Go for 30 min walk or meditation.

I love morning walks. I am sad I am not going for them due to all the stupid reasons I can think of. But from this morning, I am back in action.

b)      Will have proper 3 meals a day.

I am not going to try to have a proper diet, I can’t afford trying. I will do it.

c)      To have 6 hours of sleep a day.

I can see, people who know me smirking (and also those who can see the time of the post). I am an insomniac. This will be a fight but I want to win sleepily , else one day will come when I will be called as zombie . (Currently, they have termed as ghost)

d)     To take my medicines on time.

I am not that ill, that I have to take so many medicines daily. But whatever I need to take (multivitamins, calcium, iron tablets, pain killers etc etc) , I will have them on time. Already, placed a daily alarm.

e)      Start my day with lemon and honey in warm water.

Ya, ya I want to lose those stubborn inches. Do you know how bad it feels , when you have a Van Heusan dress in your wardrobe from last 11 months (price tag freshly enacted) and you try it every Saturday morning , just to say ‘I wish I could look better’ L

2. Do something that I love to.

I love to write. I love to dance. Writing and dancing is being in trance form for me. Need to come over my mood swings –  write/dance. Need to vent out my anger – write/dance. Need to express my happiness – write/dance. I know I am not regularly blogging but tweeting. I am trying to be active on blog again. Coming to dancing, what gratifies me – locked my room, dim lights , loud music dancing in front of mirror , just like that.

3. Crop the cribbings

I do sometimes crib, human tendency please don’t judge me. Thanks. Every day is a new day , every moment is a new moment, every situation is a new situation.. Face them , live them, embrace them. Life is a bed of roses but with some thorns. Once pinched by the thorn tip immediately turn to the softness of roses, don’t stay there and start cribbing the thorn , better to confine into the softness of roses.

4. Keep my wardrobe organized.

Don’t want to waste precious morning minutes in finding what to wear and then iron them , uff , I do need to fix this bad habit.

5. Not to say ‘I am busy’

There was a time, when friends always taunt me because I am always ‘busy’. Credits to last few weeks, I am actually busy (oops I said that , I am sorry).I am not liking this , feeling totally burn out. I am daily struggling to manage my just 24 hour day. The way I am moving with life (can’t dare to say growing with life) I feel I would never be free from schedule madness until I will be comfortable taking responsibility of ‘my time’. No one is going to beat me for declining meetings. Being busy is not cool !

So where does this list will leave me? I believe in results, I am sure I will be sticking to above mentioned resolutions (fingers crossed)

Life is short, though I wish to live 100 years. I want to make this life worth living every moment. No walking away from greatest life episodes. Not to miss any single moment to say thanks /sorry / love you. Do something that I am proud of , in my signature style.

Cheers, to a better , wiser, more organized, more energized, new freshen one more year older me … happie birthday 🙂

Thank you everyone, hugs and kisses. Stay Blessed

Expressions of love

Hey beautiful ladies out there , what’s up ?

Waiting for Valentine’s Day . It’s my favorite time of the year!

You can say, the unofficial holiday (everyone uses the stupidest of excuses to take a day off).    If you are in a relationship (or you have find someone to go out with ) then this Tuesday is your day  and if you are single (aka like me) then be ready to enjoy the PDAs  – public display of affection ,everywhere( with  no offense, it’s just a general view. )

Do you know how it feels to be single on the Valentine’s Day? Nothing bad actually, it’s awful, only  when I try to fill the void.  Well, is it written anywhere that V day is to love someone and to treat your partner with all your love ? (Only your partner, not you !!!)

Valentine’s Day is a day of exchanging flowers, cards, and loving sentiments punctuated with warm feelings of admiration, affection, and infatuation….. bla bla . True , but it looks good in romantic novels or movies only.

From years I have been celebrating it myself (I am my favorite, so in love with me ) going out for a movie , shopping or freaking out  for a city’s drive. Dressed up nicely, wearing my favorite perfume. All those years I did everything I need to please me.  This year, I want to make it special. Something that signifies the independent and oh so ever charming side of me (* Blush *Blush).  I need some strong expressions to celebrate the lovely and beautiful person in me.

Let me tell you a secret now :  Women LOVES jewellery (more than their wardrobe).  No matter how many of them we have, we still have undying fetish for more. ( I personally am old fashioned, so something like a cutesy heart necklace paired with a single red rose is so romantic. ) Behind every piece of jewellery there is an untold story.

So when I was searching jewellery to gift myself, one of my friends help me with this website.  : http://www.expjewelery.com . You must check out for a lovely Indian collection. Expression’s Reflections of excellence,  has a vast collection of waistbands, key chain, earrings, rings, necklaces, pendent sets, armpits and bridal jewellery. Do you know ‘Jewellery takes people’s minds off the wrinkles’?

So by the time I select ‘the one’ for me (oh come on ! I am girl , deciding the one from such a beautiful and tempting collection , needs time. You will be wondering, why I am spending time for a fake jewellery ?

Let me tell you another secret: jewellery gives woman a good boost to their morale. I will always prefer a fake jewellery, not because that looks more real, but because I think I am sort of paranoid. I don’t want something around my neck that’s worth more than my head.

Here are plenty of options to have something unique. How about the keychains , for that royal Indian look ? They have some pretty ‘peacock‘ designs too. Or should I look at something in shells ? They look quite girls (perfect to hide your age and feel young from within 😉 ) here is one in white (serene !!)

Now , I could have choosen these waist bellts , if and only if I have a waist to die for ; like the one of Shilpa Shetty. Chick and Sexy !

I must thank Beyonce Knowles for her song ‘ Single Ladies’ that help me stumb

le upon the rings section.

Please help me friends , selecting a ring  I am confused  with these 3 .

Expressions - Reflections of Excellence

All the single ladies, If you like it , you should put a ring on it. !

Celebrate this valentine with all love and glitter that reflect your expressions well .

Love ,

Dusk (2011) and Dawn (2012)

Hie,

Do you know how does it feel when one of the milestone years of your life is just flying by ? It hurts , I can assure you this ,while I am sobbing 😥 Trust me. Ha ha ha, do I am getting dramatic?

I know this is that time of year when people talk about partying (ah! , they actually party) with family and friends . So this will sound a tad weird, but let me just say it anyway – even in this third season of celebrations (First season : Diwali Celebrations ; Second Seasons : Almost every ‘eligible’ person around getting married; Third season : Christmas and New Year) when everyone is partying and displaying togetherness (mostly for facebook uploads!) . I’m probably having a good appetite for ‘homeliness’.

It all started on one fine day (it’s sad it was one of my loved ones birthday) I got cornered with this horrendous cough. Now it’s been a month, I am (still) heavily and badly coughing, cozying up in quilt in front of idiot box and trying to list down my do-able resolutions for 2012.

When I look back at 2011, it was a milestone, so much done in just a span of 12 months!! Unfortunately lost many friends (no matter how cold I pretend, I am sorry for my loss) and enjoyed company of few gems in my life (ah, m blessed!) and at the end broke 🙂 🙂  (year full of expenses).

A year back in 2010, I was longing for a holiday. I am lucky I was travelling (apart from my weekly trips back home) all around the year. As a kid, I was told that, if you put your mind , body and soul into something , there are pretty much chances that you will achieve. 2010 was the most hectic so I did everything for a holiday. 2011 I was holidaying in Hyderabad, Jim Corbet , Banglore, Rishikesh , Vaishno Devi. This year, I was being low on health part. I wish myself a healthy 2012.

Keeping health in mind, I have now settled on below 2 resolutions (fingers crossed)

  • Maintain a routine and be more organized.
  • Write and Workout daily.

Perfect timing. I finished everything before midnight 🙂

Countdown has begun and with the clock striking 12 o’clock on December 31st night, everyone is gearing up to express joy and happiness to welcome 2012. Why should I be  left 🙂

It’s a New Year !!

It’s like a new Sunrise… of Hope, of Prosperity , of Happiness

It’s like new Beginning… of Thoughts, of Words, of Actions

It’s like a new Day… of Energy, of Strength, of Ideas

Its like a Bunch of whole New things..of Prayers, of Friends, and of Love.

Stay Blessed,

Spread happiness,

Saakshi
