Forgive me for I have sinned.....

Dan Browns Inferno has got me hooked on Dante's "Divine Comedy", though I certainly want to hurl Inferno in the garbage or at Dan Brown because its a terrible read. I think the writer has lost his brilliance( more of that some other time). So coming back  to Divine Comedy, for those who aren't aware, it  is  Dante's epic poem about his journey from  hell to paradise. Inferno (the first part )in Italian stands for hell and Dante describes it as nine circles beneath the Earth.

So what has all this got to do with me or my health journey. Well according to Dante if I don't stop I will rot in the the third circle which is gluttony . This is for those who overindulge in food and drinks or any other form of addiction.

These past days for me has been my journey into hell, with tireless eating and binging of everything unhealthy and junk., cookies, doughnuts, biryani, name it and I have eaten it.

I actually cringe while writing this, and I am burdened …

Mindful May

Summer at its peak and heat strokes, all you want to do is sit at home and drink loads of iced cola’s. Last thing on your mind is to exercise, god who wants the extra sweat when you are already dripping buckets because of the terrible heat waves. 

This month is also the month that most people have completely worn out their New Year resolutions and have gotten back to being their old selves, giving up all the good changes that they made and settled into previous habits ….No exercise, junk eating, no self-control , smoking and all the jazz. Really what most of us need is a jolt and fight this wave of getting to comfortable and renew our New Year Resolutions, to practice Mindfulness. Mayo Clinic explains mindfulness as “The act of being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling at every moment — without interpretation or judgment. “

How can you practice mindfulness? There are loads of simple techniques but I prefer to do it while working out. So here is a low down on how you ca…

The Rushfit Sabbatical

A lot of you are wondering why there havent been any updates on the Rushfit schedule.  To be honest the schedule died a slow death due to vacation and other urgent household issues (not important).
As much as I would have loved to be bikini ready this month, I dont think I can flaunt myself in one.So in comes the loose fitting linnen pants and tops to hide the fat. Not if I want the world to see the ugly tire hanging around and the oh so not loving love handles.
Its a wonder how I can compensate  my guilt of not working out with eating or more approriately hoarding myself with unhealthy fattening stuff. I certainly need to work on my food addiction or should I call it emotional eating (a issue I need to deal with soon). The baking project isnt helping unless I start working on making goodies but healthy alternatives. Need to get hubby dearest to buy that oven soon

I keep telling myself to stop hurting myself with binging but to no vain. The only good thing is I havent gained any poun…
