Back to this place. One of the easiest ways to be fit is to get like-minded friends. This time few of my friends joined with me to be fit and lose weight. 
Today’s walking for 5.8 km in 60 mins a good start.

Good investment for “be fit”- “KETTLEBELL”. Just need to start from basics. 
Kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength. The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once, and in a way that mimics real world activities such as shoveling or farm work. It is used to perform many types of exercises, including but not limited to ballistic exercises that combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training.

Music 🎶 gets me through everything. My most favourite song “ Sundari Kannaal Oru Sethi / சுந்தரி கண்ணால் ஒரு சேதி” from Thalapathi. What’s your all time favourite song ??? .

எனைத்தான் அன்பே மறந்தாயோ
மறப்பேன் என்றே நினைத்தாயோ

“Special cup of tea” 
This incident happened around 2011 after I completed my college. I used to visit blue cross on Sundays, to do some volunteer works or to take my home pets for vaccination. During one of my visit, I met Rani. What’s special about her is, she is a transgender. Very bold and classy in a neatly ironed cotton saree. We both were waiting for the doctor to arrive and started the conversation. The conversation was for about 15-20 minutes and she never shared to me any of her problems. Just her happy moments and we had a hot cup of tea. At last what she said to me is the only reason to remember her even today. She said to me “ my cat doesn’t know to hurt me or discriminate me” this short friendship ended with a warm hug. Too special for me.

I wanted to share with you, two major healthy replacements I did in my home. 
Replaced white sugar with raw cane sugar and table salt with Himalayan pink salt. ( Long post alert) do take 5 minutes to read this post. We changed to this a long time before. For people in Singapore, you can buy this raw cane sugar from @suvaifoods and Himalayan pink salt from @saiorganics.sg . ———————————————————————— Himalayan Pink salt is often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today. It has all kinds of nutritional and therapeutic properties, not to mention culinary uses. You can use it as a healthier option to processed salt. * Regulation of the water levels within the body for proper overall functioning
* Helping reduce common signs of aging
* Encouraging healthy blood sugar levels
* Promoting cellular energy creation
* Reducing cramping (like leg cramps)
* Improving the absorption of nutrients from foods
* Aiding vascular health
* Lowering the incidence of sinus problems and promoting overall sinus health
* Providing circulatory support
* Improving bone strength
* Fostering a healthy libido
* Promoting kidney and gallbladder health in comparison to chemically treated table salt (reference @drjoshaxe) ————————————————————————
Raw Cane Sugar : 
Non-centrifugal cane sugar (NCS) is the technical name given to traditional raw sugar obtained by evaporating water from sugarcane juice. NCS is internationally recognized as a discrete and unique product by the FAO since 1964 and by the World Customs Organization (WCO) since 2007. 
compounds include anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-hyperglycemic, diuretic, and hepatoprotective effects. Ayurveda prescribes herbal formulations containing sugarcane derivatives for the management of iron deficiency anemia.
The studied health benefits of raw sugarcane juice include: •	Analgesic activity •	Liver protective •	Blood sugar normalizing •	Diuretic activity •	Acetylcholine release •	Anti-inflammatory •	Antihypercholesterolemic effect •	Antithrombotic activity •	Contains beneficial microbes that enhance healthy gut flora •	Immunological and redox-anti-oxidant effects

Day 3: Chandraghanta 
Tritiya commemorates the worship of Chandraghanta - the name derived from the fact that after marrying Shiva, Parvati adorned her forehead with half-chandra(lit. moon). She is the embodiment of beauty and is also symbolic of bravery, and hence, the color of the day is yellow.

#metoo or #metooindia getting viral. Each and everyone faces some kind of harassment daily, either physical or verbal. Even today someone texted me about sending him a “ bold personal picture” I just told him “be on your limits” and that “BOLD MAN” immediately deleted that message. ( I made a report about that profile) 
If anyone messes with me it’s their fate. Because I have a very good vocabulary and strong enough to give a punch. 
In my 8th std, I used to take the government bus to reach my school. I noticed an elderly person disturbing me. I immediately informed my dad about this. He explained to me what to do if something happens to me or any other girls. He gave few basic self-defense techniques. 
1. Inform the person to stay away from you 
2. If he is not moving, inform someone nearby or shout 
3. If nothing works, better punch him or push him away 😉 
This actually worked for me. Next day the same person, I don’t want to try option 1 or option 2. I just punched him and started to shout at him. After that, I had no issues 😉. Then I started to raise my voice if I see someone face any kind of harassment. I react immediately. It’s your body and you have all rights on it. Only you have the rights. No other person has any rights to touch it without your permission. Whatever the situation is, just raise your voice. Be bold and brave. Face it with courage.

Navaratri (literally "nine nights"), also spelled Navratri or Navarathri, Hindu festival, celebrated in the autumn every year. These nine days are solely dedicated to Goddess Durga and her nine Avatars. Thought can make artworks for each day of navarati. .
Day 1 : 
Goddess Shailaputri (literally "Daughter of Mountain"), an incarnation of Parvati. It is in this form that the Goddess is worshiped as the consort of Shiva; she is depicted as riding the bull, Nandi, with a trishula in her right hand and lotus in her left. Shailaputri is considered to be the direct incarnation of Mahakali. The color of the day is red, which depicts action and vigor.
