Good Vs. Bad

Tanvi is a good girl, now [Note: Emphasis on NOW]. I am finally moving on from the "Drama-Queen" phase and embracing health, as a lifestyle change and not just a quick-fix! I am loving my daily dose of grilled tofu, juicy watermelon, cold milk with Muesli, etc ...  I can go on and on ... (Having 8 meals is not a joke). However, my up-coming 5 weeks holiday is going to be a real test of will and self-control. I have so many vices to fight ...

Anywhooo, the reason I am writing this post is that last weekend I went to a Health Food Store, where I met this wonderful gentleman - Mr. John, Sr. who owned the store (I would guess his age to be somewhere around 60-ish). He was willing to share this experience and advice (free of cost) with me. He said he was also a Personal Trainer by profession. I wanted to know how can one reduce their fat percentage while maintaining their weight [technical no? I KNOW!!!] Besides the workout advice, he also handed me a list of foods which one should and/or should not eat. I read it out loud to Mr. Fabulous and GUESS WHAT? I am already eating 90% of the stuff on the list [rest 10% I can't as I am a vegetarian]. While I am doing the best I can, you will see there is still a lot of room for improvement ...

I have been  meaning to write a post for last 2 weeks but in after-thoughts I found my thoughts not worth penning down (typing) ... so I let it go. Today, however is a new day and I want to write! I don't care what but I want to write! :o)  

Summer - It's finally here and I am loving it [My fav. 4 months June-Sept]. The colorful clothes, tube-tops, shorts ... Oh God it's my season ... This is what I work for [like crazy-drama queen] the remaining of the 8 months.

Holidays - I will be leaving for 5 long weeks. While I am super excited about stress-free-relaxing-pampering-being-spoilt-daughter, I have to say I will miss Veronica (my trainer) and my gym and my yoga & Pilates classes [Very sad]. 

Movies - I saw "UP" last week and I absolutely loved it. It's a must watch for EVERYONE! I am not much of an Animation-movie-kinda-person but this one I simply LOVED! Some of
 the pervious ones I have really enjoyed (so that you know if we have common taste) are Madagascar, Finding Nemo, and Shrek. 

Yogurt - It probably seems silly but I am addicted to Natural Frozen Yogurt. There is this specific place called OrangeCup where I discovered my latest addiction [Check it: www.myorangecup.com]. It's about 20 miles (about 30kms) from where I stay but who care ... I gotta-have-what-I-gotta-have! :P [Special Thanks to Mr. Fabulous here]

Shopping - Living in the States is really hard for my self-control. And since I have discovered Online Shopping and my corresponding sizes (XS of course:P) it has become even harder. It had gotten to the point that I had to VOW to not shop for the month of June. It has only been 5 days ... but so far so good ... :o)

Well, so it seems I am all ready to enjoy my summer. All my favorite T.V. sitcoms have ended for the season so I can leave my couch and move out to the greener-brighter-pastures :P

Hasta La Vista, Baby!
