You may call me stereotypical but being a Punjabi is enough to suffice the fact that I’m a big time foodie. That and a health freak. I’ve always been healthy because my dad is a health freak. He’s always made sure that I’m involved in some sort of physical activity or the other. I remember how I used to hate waking up at 5 in the morning during my school days because my dad wanted me to go for running or practice yoga.
But then things changed. I came to Delhi for my graduation. The very fact that I came to “Delhi” led to a change in my lifestyle- no portion control, no exercise, unhealthy food, no regulations in terms of timings. Here, I would like to make this clear that I have no grudges against Delhi. In fact I love this place so much that I don’t feel like going home anymore. That’s the kind of effect it has on me. Coming back to the topic, I started gaining weight like anything. And then I had to get my tests done because it wasn’t just the increasing weight that was bothering me but I started suffering from a lot of other problems. Waking up to a bloated stomach and a swelled face became a routine. And then I was diagnosed for thyroid which I’ll be discussing in detail in my next post. Due to weight gain, I went into depression. I couldn’t wear what I wanted to. Zipping my jeans became a challenge (I’m not kidding).
My dad came into picture again. He helped me get out of this trouble and since then, I’ve been very particular about my exercise regime and about things I put into my stomach.
Eat right. Eat all you want.
This is my first post on health and fitness, hoping to help everyone with each.
