Resolutions for 2010 and beyond

It is customary to make new year resolutions. So, here is my list.

1. Lose 5 kgs (or more) of weight - I have lost over 10 kgs in the last year. Down from 85kgs to around 75kgs now. Resolving to get it down to 70 kgs or less.

2. Exercise everyday (except Sundays - even God rested on Sunday!!) - Resolve to walk/exercise for 15-45 mins everyday.

3. Spend more time with family and friends - Add family time to the calendar!!

4. Read atleast 2 books per month - Make and maintain a list of books to be read.

5. Start practising meditation - Start working on meditating for atleast 5 mins everyday. Plan

These are my resolutions for 2010. Not too many. The trick would be to stick to them and make them work.

Review: My new ebook reader - Infibeam PI

I bought a new ebook reader. It is the Infibeam PI (www.infibeam.com/PI) . I have seen and used both the Amazon Kindle and Sony ebook reader. The main reason I selected the PI is because it was available in India. I did not have to wait for weeks to get my hands on it.

I will not go into detailed comparisons between the three readers I have used. The reason I bought the ebook is to read books. Although that sounds rather a stupid thing to say, I found some features on Kindle quite superfluous to book reading. Like the space consuming keyboard. I dont know of any book which comes with a keyboard, so why should an ebook come with one. If I have to surf the net, I will use my laptop to do it.

The whole buying process was easy and seamless. Delivery happened within 3 working days. The only regret I had was my father was not there to see this. He was pretty excited with the concept of an ebook reader and I had entrusted him with the duty of checking the condition of the parcel when it arrive…

Book Review: Let's Do Lunch by Roger Wilson

I read this book sometime back as part of my journey of understanding food and how it affects the body and mind. In the last two years I have managed to lose about 10kgs of weight and in the process have learnt a fair deal about food, although not enough to talk authoritatively with a nutritionist.

Roger Wilson's book deals mainly about how the author lost a significant amount of weight himself after trying his own diet plan. The diet he followed was eating fruits and proteins. His lack of fundamental knowledge of nutrition makes his commentary a suspect from the very beginning. This book is more a chronicle of the authors weight loss journey than a guide to healthy eating.


Conclusion: Better to avoid.
