My fitness and exercise story

I am trying to maintain some level of exercise in my daily routine. As mentioned earlier, I am trying to lose some weight.  I used to attend a badminton coaching camp at school. We were taught basic yogic asanas to build up endurance. Usually I practice Yoga for 15- 20 minutes and try to spend 20 minutes on the elliptical. I follow this routing for 4-5 days a week.

Some days I find the entire routine very boring and tiring. Other days I manage to stick to it. Its hardly been a week or so. I will try increasing the time as I go along.I am thinking of adding skipping to  my set of activities.

I have been “Googling” with terms like “How to lose weight” and all that. I basically do know there is no short cut to losing weight. But I still end up doing so, hoping for a miracle exercise. :).  So lets see how my weight lose journey comes along.


Does anyone believe in astrology or do you dismiss it is a random science. Astrology has always been very interesting for me. In fact I have always been interested in such things. By such, I mean occult, witches, ouija boards, ghost stories, past life re-incarnations. I mean I am not crazy or “into” these “sciences”, but I am kind of curious about them. No, I have never actually “played” with a ouija board. I believe those things are dangerous and should be examined from a distance.

Astrology however is different. I believe it can be as exact as a science. I also believe that provided you have the right details i.e. date of birth, time of birth and place of birth, a true “jyotish” would be able to predict a number of things. I did try learning astrology but then I do not have the patience to go about it. Maybe, someday I will actually learn it. It would be quite something to go of predicting stuff.
