Gratitude List 2017: #1 January

As promised to all my readers, friends, and well wisher, here I am with my gratitude list for 2017. Aiming to focus only positive aspects happen 2017, despite the fact i was surrounded by circumstantial obstacles in personal life. So here is my gratitude list for the month of January... 

For me the month of January was just like classic opener for any Fizzy drink, which was quite effervescent at the beginning and marks me slow gradually. I began 2017 with a great celebration, I wanted to mark this year with a 'high note' and tread confidently as unstoppable me in the coming months of 2017. To meet my healthy lifestyle goals for upcoming 2017 I registered myself for Pinkathon2017 that too for 10km category. Earlier I have participated in 3 km and 5 km maximum, but doing 10 fo r the person like was big win. 

I happen to meet an awesome colleague from different team, her name was Sweta koti, we both use to run atleast 4 km everyday at NGV, Koramangala. Her early morning wake-up calls motivted me to not to give up. Yes, there were times when I felt lazy but then anyways I had to get up for Erishka's school thingy by 6:30 so why not I start my day little more early.

In order to give healthy start for the day i started having wheat grass juice almost everyday instead of tea, and then also started working on my sleep routine too, I must thank my Smart Watch which helped to monitor and improve my sleep routine. All this while I continued by Buddhism practice by attending meetings, participating in monthly discussions and of course Chanting.

So my morning routine for almost last three months of 2016 was like this;

5:45- get up, freshen up and Chant for 10 mins and morning prayer
6:15: off to run
7:00: Coffee followed by quick shower
7:20: Cook & Pack Breakfast, snack n small lunch for 3 of us, 
8:45: Wake up Erishka get her ready, and myself for work
8: 30: walk down Erishka to school, and try to login before 9 am to office
9:00: Breakfast heavy like alu parattha, childa, poha, poori, channa, sprouts, parattha
around 11am I replaced tea with green wheat grass juice, and fruits for snacks
1:30 lunch : homemade food
3:30 : juice , veg sandwich and fruits
6:30: Pick Erishka, 
6:45: have evening snacks (homemade sevaiya, potatoe chips, pasta) and milk
8:30: Dinner 
I aimed to sleep by 10 pm .... but it stretch till 10:30 as i need make Erishka do her HW, other school activity, next prep for food, and of course my social media interactions...

Yes i did went off track from my fitness goal, and that too when the D-Day was nearing, you may blame 31st December Hangover ;) and also my sister's first visit (for wedding) to Bangalore after my Marriage. She was coming to our house for the first time.. On the same day of her arrival, I had to collect my BiB too so , being super excited I picked my sister and nephew from Lavelle road. Reached home to have awesome food made by my mom.. 

Best part of this month was that my mom was with me, in Bangalore. She extended her stay due to some family wedding happening in the same city. However, I happen to spend more time with her, not sure about the quality.

Finally I finished my first ever 10K run in 01:29:13 as official timing Thanks to Akshaye Thakkar ... I left behind lot many things my qualms, inhibition, fear, abuses, stereotypes #leaveitbehind #pinkathon2017 #pinkathon #fitmom

I did a good show on the 29th January 2017 hoping to begin next month of love February better :) So these were few good things to count for my gratitudelist2017 for the month of January.
