There was a slight break in the incessant rains at around 6.00 a.m. today morning, so decided to go out for a quick run. Not run since Monday so wanted this badly, a shortie 5.53 kms just to get the legs moving. Beautiful weather today morning in Mumbai in the back road behind Inorbit Mall, Malad.

7.35 kms in mindspace, Malad, Mumbai. With that i cross 500 kms for the year 2020. Its been a huge effort coming back from virtually no running for 3 and half months to slowly building mileages. Nowadays i see a lot of people out there running, jogging, walking, cycling, skating etc. Its tremendous what is happening post covid people are finally taking their health seriously. I see women running in saris, that is like WOW!! i see a lot of slum dwellers out there walking with their kids, and that is a good sign as well. Weather is still very humid, i guess winter is a few days away.
Quick read book by Rujuta Diwekar, although one is supposed to read it slowly and imbibe it along the way and follow the instructions from the book, which is what i did. I like her bindaas attitude to food in the sense that she advocates eating ghee, white sugar, jaggery etc. all of which are anathema to other nutritionists or diet consultants. She also says, eat what your grandparents used to, it will work wonders, which is true in a way. She uses a lot of Indianised words in the book, which is the hallmark in her earlier books as well “Don’t Lose your Mind, Lose your Weight” which was also a good book to read. One has to follow the instructions to the T for proper results otherwise it will not be visible, which is what happens to most of us, in the sense that we get busy with our work lives and forget to follow most of the basic principles advocated in the book. Lot of the information given in the book is very practical to use and adapt. I would recommend, read one chapter at a time, imbibe and practice solutions from that chapter and then go ahead. Highly recommended read.
This book by Rujuta Parker is a immensely doable project, achievable if we follow all the guidelines scrupulously. It goades people into following simple instructions in order to improve their health, sleep well, be less irritable, have better energy levels etc. Some i already do such as physical activity (running), strength training, some others i need to incorporate in my daily routine, Good book to follow.
