The mango days have came to an end, and the monsoon showers have come. All this summer you
must have been in a holiday mood and would have been visiting somebody or have had
somebody visiting you. There were weddings, gatherings, parties and of course afternoon
So there have been days of pampering yourself with cool drinks, ice-creams, sweets,
mangoes, milkshakes and what not. If you checked your weight before summer and after
summer you will find that you have put on a few kilos (except for the few lucky ones whose
metabolic rate is so high that they do not put on weight no matter what they eat).
If you need help on shedding those summer kilos, consider the following options :
who enjoy the outdoors, there is nothing like a brisk walk or a jog with the cool monsoon
Timings best suitable : Early morning around sunrise or late in the evening
around sunset. For this you will need a nice pair of walking shoes and preferably salwars
Best places :
The beach road, as there is a foot path and no hawkers in the morning, and the view and
music of the waves is really energizing, gearing you up for the day, and the cool breeze
from Bay of Bengal caressing you.
ii. Around the engineering colleges of A.U
iii. For those around Akkayyapalem, Seethammadhara, Narasimhanagar, Shanthipuram, Railway
New Colony etc, The Nehru Sports Complex known as 'Port stadium' on NH5 is a nice option.
It is clean and green and with the backdrop of the hills, is quiet good. But you have to
have an entry pass and it will be available for a period of 3 months with a fee of
Rs.60 in the office.
iv. Else your apartment's terrace or your colony roads with less traffic could be another
If you feel you are not the outdoor type, then you have the option of skipping indoors,
using a cycling machine, or going up and down the stairs of your apartment if you are
energetic enough (Avoid this if you have joint pains, or are above 40 - an age when
arthritis generally sets in). You can always join the gym in your locality - some of them
offer aerobics too.
Again you need a pair of shoes, long cotton T-shirts, sweat bands and loose cotton slacks.
Yoga is a wonderful option giving you health for the body and soul. You can contact the
Yoga village on the beach road, to take classes till you get familiar.
Those of you who want to get back to shape faster, many reputed institutes in our city
nowadays promise the transformation. To name a few, there is highly reputed Anoos
behind Tycoon at Siripuram, there is Anu's at CBM compound near Timpany
School, Innovative Cure, Cosmos at East Point Colony
near Vuda Park.
|If you take care
of your health in time, then you will lead a much happier life. You will look good, and
feel great! All the best!
