It's that time of the year!

I think it's in the air. The whole wedding thingy. No! I'm not kidding. I've been in Chennai now for less than 3 months and I've already attended 12 weddings with 2 more due this weekend. There are a tonnes more I've missed out all across India (my ISB classmates). Is it just my imagination that there has been a sudden spurt in the number of marriages, or have I forgotten how it actually is, after living away from home for so long?

Ultimate once again..

So, this morning was the second successful game of Ultimate Frisbee in Chennai. It felt great once again to run like crazy.. to let go of all inhibitions and just run!

I thought it would take me a long time to get Ultimate going in Chennai... like it did in ISB. But, thanks to the ISB guys' enthu now, its much easier to take off. We have about 5-6 regular Ultimate players from ISB here in Chennai. So, it feels great to have a team ready to play with. Thanks to Mama who's gotten me out of my stupor by organizing the first game last weekend.
About 5 new people have joined us today.. and I hope soon we'll have enough players to start playing regular full 7 member games.

The battle for sustainment will follow now. Lets hope that people will be as enthusiastic about it 2 months from now, just like they felt today!

Attempting to get fit.. AGAIN!

Attempting.. attempting.. and still attempting!!

I woke up early this morning.. jogged for a good half hour on the newly laid Old Mahabalipuram Road. Felt good. Feel alive now. Trying to get the bloated me back into shape. I've also joined this dancerobics with Gold's gym.

My sedentary life style isn't any good. 9 hours of sitting at work is never healthy. I feel incapacitated. The last year at ISB was great in that sense. I played very regularly. Almost an hour and a half every alternate day. However, Sarovar and their policy of feeding ISB students pure fat, kept me from un-bloating. Now, i eat a little better, but the exercise component is missing. Dang.. why is staying fit ALWAYS a struggle? Why couldn't life be a little easier and for a change.. staying fit is what comes naturally.. and then one would really have to struggle to get out of shape! HA!
Having a fridge/pantry full of goodies like chocolates and biscuits is a daily test I have to pass. I've managed to scale down on the junk I consume.. but its so easy to have a relapse.. Once in a while I even imagine a bar of Dairy Milk coming dancing out of the fridge and knocking on my cubicle and running back!!

God.. I'm going mad!
