My Recipe for Success: Commitment

My Recipe for Success: Commitment

My Recipe for Success: Everyone is different from one another. Therefore, everyone’s recipe for success is different. It is now day 36 of a diet commitment. Day 36 of a 70-day process that is. Halfway there. A few weeks back, when I was wolfing down donuts and other types of junk food, I came to realize how out of shape I was getting. I became DISGUSTED at myself. There are lots of talks these days about fat shaming and body positivity, but…

The 54th Deadline: Forcing Change

The 54th Deadline: Forcing Change

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. I needed a change in more ways than one. I have grown weary of my mediocrity.

Or perhaps, maybe I don’t want it as bad as I want… Nah, the last one is not the case. For years now, I have…

Upbeat Feat: Jogging for Your Health

Upbeat Feat: In life, one must embrace each and every victory. Relish in positive moments whenever they occur. Here is a thing about me – I am mediocre at exercise. But with this in mind, you can imagine what it was like when I decided, on a whim no less, to add jogging to my everyday routine. Yup, I have been on a self-improvement binge. Try and stop me now! I even got new(ish) running shoes for the occasion. So…

The 54th Deadline: Body

The 54th Deadline: Body

I have never been one for exercise, mainly due to laziness. Even when I dabbled in high school sports for a bit, I found myself not enjoying this kind of physical activity in general. It always bored me, so I never figured out why some people just loved working out. But as I have gotten older, and feeling grossly out of shape, I became disgusted at myself. At this point, I do not feel good about my body. I know…

The 54th Deadline: Routine

The 54th Deadline: Routine

I used to dread waking up early, but there came a point where I needed to change. The fact is, I am no longer a kid who can just sleep in as much as he wants and get up super late in the day. Or at the very least, I needed to correct such an unhealthy, grossly inefficient habit. I believe in structured success. Acutely aware how many go-getter people tend to be very disciplined, I needed to take a…
