It feels like it has been months since I sat like this in the office, fresh & ready to start my week. Till last week I was running here & there, trying to finish my pending work in office & at home also trying to clean, cook & set myself back to my normal routine, as I was before. It was very, very hard I must say. After 2 weeks, now I am feeling I am back to normal. Although yesterday I was missing how we use to spend our weekends in India, going out till late night & dinners all but it’s Ok..
So, I have these few goals set up for myself before I go back to India in December for sis’s wedding.
1) Get the learners license(yes, I don’t even have learners here!!), practice driving with PK & take driving lessons with instructor as well and get my license hopefully by the end of this year.
2) Most important – I have to lose some weight, actually not some.. too much weight!!
I met hundreds of relatives & friends in India and each & every one commented on my weight, even the distinct relatives!! Sometimes I took the comments positively but by the end of our visit I was getting frustrated, I was thinking it has been 4 years since many of people would have seen me, why do they expect me to look the same, can I not change after wedding? I even cried at night once in front of PK. It was so DE-motivating to hear these comments every single day, 10 times, as if I have committed any crime!!
OK… I agree, I should lose weight, I have gained weight after wedding but the thing is I would never tell anyone on face for so many times that you are looking FAT!! People even said – “You should not eat bread, cheese & all that..but what to do, you don’t find any veggie options there no??”
I noticed that people had so many mindsets about NRIs – “they should look like this, they only wear high-end brand clothes & make-up, their skin must be white, clean & shiny & all that. When they use to see me in simple, plain top & jeans, they would make faces as if I have committed any crime!! Oh and my skin!! Frankly speaking my skin is not good at all, there are always scars or pimples on my face, instead of being happy to see me after so long, many people would become sad to see my skin!!
Why do people want to see foreign return girls in all shining-shining clothes & ultra modern look with clean glowing skin only? I don’t understand that.. The handbag should be glossy & shiny & same should be the sandals with highest heel possible..
Anyways.. yeah so my goal is to join a gym & workout for an hour at least for four times a week. I don’t like to do proper exercises & walking & running on treadmills & all that. So, I have decided to join women’s gym, they have different classes every day like Zumba class, Body Pump, Body attack, Pilates, Studio cycle etc.. Let’s see when actually I will join & be regular in that!!
To tell you about my weekend, Saturday we spent with our friends & Sunday, we spent doing house work & grocery shopping, nothing much exciting. How was your weekend?? 🙂
PS : It feels so good writing here & pouring my heart out.. I feel so light now, let me start my work now 🙂
