Ever since I saw Dil To Pagal Hai in 1997, I wanted to wear those savvy sports-wear Karisma was wearing. (Naturally, I couldn't else I would have looked like a Hippopotamus trying to fit into Snake's skin.) Today wearing those clothes is actually a motivation to get-up and go-to-the-gym for me. But you wouldn't believe what I saw today!!! I saw a middle-age man wearing a shortest shorts possible on this earth with a body-fit tank-top. It was a completely heinous sight. First, he was stretching in the same room where I was skipping and then he went to the step class (where he was jumping around). I have no idea what-on-earth was that man thinking. Really!!!
Yoga is really changing my life. I am not exaggerating. Everyday I am able to push my body a-little-bit more and when I come back home I get to show-it-off to my husband (since everyone in the class is already a pro, they are obviously not impressed with my baby-steps). Also, I broke my own record of skipping for 15-mins and reached 25-mins today. To distract myself from the clock I play games like I will keep skipping till jump a straight 100 or till I don't start sweating, etc. Works for me. Try it.
We had a good Mediterranean meal - Cous Cous with multi-colored peppers, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, chillies and turkey (for hubby) with Hummus over a warm whole-wheat Pita and Green Salad along with the Spicy-Mint Yogurt Drink.
My gracious audience will be glad to know that WE DID survive the weekend quite successfully. We were disciplined about our food and workout. We saw four movies (2 in the theatre) and did a little bit of necessity-related shopping. Over-all perfect weekend!
