One way to assume an aggressive posture in working out is to think about something or someone who makes you angry and bring out the anger forcefully.
The best in this is the punch bag and what a lovely feeling when we imagine punching the opponent with all the aggression.
But do we get exhausted and unhappy as anger doesn’t bring happiness.
Now, imagine we bring in some passion into the workout schedule! There’s definitely a difference.
And how about some sweetener! Like a joint program with a loved one! Or jointly in a like minded group with similar objectives! There’s happiness for sure.
Best when the sessions are done together. But what if the partner is not at the same place! Don’t worry, there’s happiness in exchanging notes remotely.
Follow the program, punch or pump vigorously for the desired outcome. And exchange the success stories.
There’s happiness and companionship; without exhaustion.
Everybody with excess fat in the body, wants to get rid of it.
I am one of them and now follow the intermittent fasting technique with some remarkable success.
When you are in such a program, one of the ways of getting better in it, is to share experiences and support each other, from among similar minded people.
I have a few of my friends supporting and sharing experiences, which is priceless.
Right now we are on a question of what would be the best food choice during the eating window of intermittent fasting.
And now I chance upon a write up on ‘Autophagy’ and there are some tips to get better in what we are doing.
We can’t do everything that’s written as good. But we can pick and choose our own individual routine and see if it works well.
I am now in the process of doing that. Hopefully we will have more interested friends in joining in the support group.
The idea is to get rid of excess fat and now the unwanted cells through the steps in autophagy, while aiming to loose weight, tone up and feel energetic and healthy.
All those who are interested in more information on Intermittent fasting and autophagy are welcome to join in, to share experiences and for mutual support.
Are two of the most desirable workout disciplines we should include in our exercise regimen.
I must admit that I am guilty here on both counts. That’s after learning both and recognising both as simple and doable anytime, anywhere.
As such, by posting this blog, I am urging myself and my friends here to make an earnest effort to incorporate both in our lifestyles.
Of course, plank is strenuous, requires some stamina but we don’t have to do 120 seconds till we are comfortable with it. Let’s start with 30 seconds and progress. Let’s do it once or preferably in a few sets for about 5 days a week.
But Pranayama is simple. We don’t have to do it by assuming a yogic legs on thighs posture. We can do it while sitting on a chair and relaxed. Just that we follow the correct breathing and holding steps.
I am returning to them. Let’s do the usual mutual support.
I am still on it, religiously on the 16.8 schedule seven days a week.
Not very easy, to go starving from dinner to next day lunch, but discipline is something I am accused of!
The good thing about this dinner to lunch is that you don’t make other people inconvenienced. That’s, people don’t generally join or call you for breakfast; but they do for lunch and dinner.
And as part of discipline, I do 12 Surya Namaskars with 45 minuets of Yoga in the morning and alternate on half hour swimming and strength training in the evening, six days of the week.
But the weight stays constant after an initial 5 pounds loss. Of course, I started to look at the mirror again as it has started looking better.
Then the idea of sharing experiences and learning from there and a friend suggested Facebook group.
Went there to join. The best and most popular one has Just one restriction ‘women only’.
Instead of crying discrimination, let me bask in the knowledge that I am in good company.
