It is not enough to make changes in lifestyle for a fitness routine. Its success depends on how convenient these changes are for you.
I know that sounds odd but think about it. If you want to adhere to a healthy lifestyle in the long term, it must be convenient to implement. Otherwise, sooner or later, you will abandon it.
As moms of very small children, we are often overstretched. When getting barely adequate sleep is a luxury, exercise and other healthy habits take a back seat. I know. Because, since my second one was born, I have not managed to get to the gym or even go for a brisk walk. I have to balance, looking after the kids, spending some time on my writing, doing a few household chores, etc.
With my older one, I could go to the gym when she was asleep (since my husband works from home). But now, my older one is awake, even when the younger one is asleep, and she wants my company. The older one also goes to school, so I have to make time to drop her off and pick her up.
With the two of them, my schedule is incredibly busy. But I really wanted to restart some cardio exercises, because I really feel a lot better when I do them.
I tried going for a walk when I take the kids down to play, but then it becomes a stroll because I have to keep an eye on them.
I finally realised that if I want to exercise regularly, it must be from home. So as a birthday gift, my husband got me an exercise bike. They are available at fairly affordable prices, way cheaper than an ipad. They are fairly compact, and fit in the corner of a room. They are exactly what I use in the gym.
Now what about eating healthy? I found that most of the unhealthy food, we consumed, was in the form of snacks. It is difficult to whip up a quick healthy snack, if you are not prepared, or if you have not thought it through before. So the key is to make it convenient to whip up a healthy snack.
Happy healthy living everyone!

Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
It is high time that women truly understood their worth and place in society, and rightfully claimed it for their own good.
Albert Einstein pretty much nailed it when he said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
The crazy-haired genius was being eloquent about a facet of human nature that doesn’t really deserve that sort of consideration.
As an extension of this strange predilection, it’s in our nature to put things in their place and most people, in particular, simply cannot resist putting a woman in her place.
