Living a Healthier Lifestyle

One quarter of the year has passed and its the new beginning of the 2nd quarter. It was like the year just started and now we are on the 5th month, nearing half of the year. Time really flies fast.

I have made some changes to my lifestyle. I have been going jogging lately with my friends thrice a week after work. There's a beautiful park specially made for joggers and some do cycle. This is situated nearby my housing estate. It has a small lake. A round of the lake is about 1.5km. Normally, we go for 4 rounds and sweat it out. And i do yoga at home on the days when I don't jog. Maintaining a healthy diet is also part of the changes. No more junk food!!! I eat more fruits and vegetable. I have cut down on oily stuff. But once in a while, i do indulge in fast food items but the no. of visits have gone down. Fast food items are very bad for us, especially the amount of oil and MSG used. Nothing can be compared to home-cooked food but that doesn't mean its not oily, huh. We still have to opt for the healthy method of cooking like steam, sauteed, bake or stir-fry with minimum amount of oil.

I bought a book on Nutrition Almanac Fourth Edition by Gayla J. Kirschmann and John D. Kirschmann. It has all the useful information for various kind of health problems and the solutions to it. This book offers quick answers to questions about nutrients plus gives you everything you need to plan a total nutritional program, all in a friendly, down-to-earth style. After reading this book, I have realised that we are lacking of many nutrients daily which is very essential on a day to day basis.

It's been 2 months since i've made the changes and i can see the difference in me. I feel very healthy this way. I hope you too can benefit by leading a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition.

Aliens attacked my Immune system

I have been down with flu and high fever. And the terrible coughs at night sounds like as if i am a T.B. patient. The throat aches so badly because of that. The worse part is that i can't eat anything, I don't have the appetite at all. I have been surviving on soups for the past 2 days. I hate porridge so i have no other choice than to have soup. The medicines are making me drowsy and making sleep for the whole day. I am a sick person!!! But i like the feeling that everyone seems to be very caring towards me like checking on me whether i'm fine or not. It feeIs so nice. I will start blogging once i kill all the aliens in my system. Till then you guys better guard your system by taking lots of Vitamin C.
