159

You know what? I am exhausted. Completely. I just want to take some time out without a gnawing feeling at the back of my head that things are not yet complete. I want to sleep without guilt and not junk on click-baits because I am so overwhelmed to tackle anything good.

I am tired. I will call it a day now, meditate a little bit, and see if I can get back to work.

Today, I had a lot to do so I stayed back in Bombay and did not leave for Pune. But instead, I slept a lot. It was a good sleep. Yesterday, a friend told me about Intermittent Fasting and he told me that I should try it out. So, I looked it up on the Internet. It seems like an effective way to get lean and all that. You get your calorie intake in an 8 hour window period and for the next 16 hours you fast. You don't eat anything in the fasting period except for having water or black tea. This gives your organs time to recover properly and use up the stored fats in your body. This is a very different approach from that other method where you are to eat every 4 hours or so. You don't need to restrict the calories you take in. You just need to consume them in a different time.

There were some websites that cautioned that this kind of a diet is not good for women because it triggers hormonal imbalance and things like that. 

Anyway, there is just so much to get done. I don't know where to begin. Actually I do know where to begin and I haven't begun. And now I want to do a few things differently.

Had a really beautiful nap.

Ate brown rice, daal, and crisp roasted chillies that had been soaked in buttermilk and dried. They are really tasty.

Yesterday I had snapped at Ma but today we made up. I don't like it at all when my mum is upset with me.

Tried out a black tee with net sleeves and my mum's saree. It looked nice. Want to wear it some day.

Have started meditating regularly since a few days now. It feels really good.

Will make some coffee now and watch some YouTube.

What has been happening:

1. Friends came over. Had a very nice dinner at Boteco. Loved their baked custard with fresh coconut.

2. Attended a friend's engagement. It was a beautiful ceremony.

3. Side mirror of the car got stolen.

4. Biggest realization about myself: I can keep going even if I don't feel like it. This is a very good sign.

What needs to be mastered is the art of waiting. Came across this really beautiful line yesterday.

The truth waits for eyes unclouded by longing. - from the Vedas
