On health...

3 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
It feels sick to fall sick ! And puking is the most terrifying thing. Woke up late today & since morning I had this feeling that I might just vomit any moment. But since I hadn't eaten anything , I couldn't possibly puke. I slept for hours & hours , finally having something in afternoon . Then slept again for 2 hrs & when I woke up , I had the water + saliva dripping out of my mouth. It felt so so so damn terrifying. And You know what happened next !!
Also , seconds before vomiting , I felt as if there was something in the stomach working as a vacuum cleaner & sucking my stomach internally ! It didn't pain but it surely took my breadth away - in a bad way !
I can take anything , exhaustion or fever but vomiting is the most disgusting thing ! I would rather prefer falling ill for 10 days then puking once . OK that's off course an exaggerated statement but all I meant was that I just cannot handle that particular trauma !! Its so yuck !!

Anyway , wassup ? Ah well , I've taken up drinking & I'm finding myself heavily addicted to it.
So what is it ? Wine ? Beer ? Tequila ? Vodka ?
No !!
Soft drinks !! :P
I used to have soft drinks only occasionally ..that too once or twice in an year . I did my best to avoid it for so many years. And now , I don't know what's wrong with me ?!
There didn't pass a week this month & before that I didn't drink coke or Pepsi. And I should just avoid it now . So many reasons why NOT to have it !
Soft drinks remind me of hookah. I had hookah just once till now which was last year. My cousin & I went to Mochas at midnight . He assured me it was not injurious . When I asked him for details - he couldn't justify anything that he said. But anyway, it was too tempting to make it go a miss . And the only reason we were there, was to have hookah.
o 0 O 0 o 0 he smoked making rings ! I think I was on the verge of fainting when I had too many doze together.
Just few days back I was asking my friend ( zee ) if we could go to Mr Beans , to have hookah. She said she had no problem with it. But the plan was cancelled and we eventually went for a movie. There were few guys & few girls with me . After the movie , we were just discussing in the parking place 'bout our next plans. Whether to go for lunch ? Or another movie ? We somehow decided to go to Mr Beans only . Zee & I asked who would want to accompany us to have hookah ?
You should have seen the expressions of the guys !! Damn ! All together -
No ! No way !! I'm won't even join for Lunch then ! Sick !!
loll , I was wondering if I had asked then to actually smoke a ciggy !
And then each of them went on explaining why NOT to smoke hookah.
There was some scientific reason like "the water vapours directly go into the lungs" . Someone said "Drugs !"
"Its got coal which has carbon which is what we inhale & that is equivalent to smoking ciggy"..And so on..
But that scared me . My cousin was wrong ! What he knew 'bout it was possibly what his Friends had to tell him & so the chain carried on.. And I was myself too lazy to actually find out if it really harmed or not. I could have googled , yeah ? I still can..but no I'm not doing so because I've already decided not to have hookah again!
Everything for my health !!
For my cousin , who is in London enjoys smoking in Icy cold weather ! I asked him to be careful & not to get addicted to it - he says he won't - & I'm not very sure !

And zeroing down to health - I have taken strict actions.
  1. No oily food.
  2. No more soft drinks.
  3. No more skipping meals. ( I never skipped meals for losing weight but just because ' didn't feel like eating' , my bad ! )
  4. Religiously doing yoga & pranayam .
  5. Drinking lot of water.

Few years back , a very health - conscious uncle of mine asked me to drink lot of lot of lot of water ! Even if I puke - its OK , he says. But like hell I'm going to drink water just to puke :P . But yeah , It feels really great & refreshing after drinking lot of water. I have been extremely remiss in taking care of myself - but if I won't - who will ?

Parents are always there. They are there guiding me , telling me what to do , what not to , but I have never been serious 'bout my health. I get tired very quickly , don't have high metabolism , I myself feel that I'm not perfect in my health - but laziness had conquered my body & brain ! I've been so casual 'bout this that my health never turned out to be my priority & so its harming me every second !! But now I'm getting myself into some strict fitness regime . I really need to do something than wait for something to accidentally happen for me !

I'm all into action & serious 'bout my health only when I fall ill or am very tired w/o doing much work. That really boosts my energy to get into proper healthy routine. When I fall ill , my entire world comes crashing down ! I feel miserable! Like what if there was nobody around me at that moment & I couldn't do anything myself ? What if I had everything on this earth - but poor health ?? Naturally , everything else would just become anything - precisely waste ! That hits me badly! Its a terrible feeling & that's what drives me to drop all the harmful habits. Old habits die hard but they do die - if I consistently adopt & practice good habits !

So here's wishing me A Very Happy Health ! :)

Good luck darling !
