30 - Days Water Drinking Challenge - Result

I started this challenge on 24th of August for 30 days. Since fasting days and the emergency days in hospital/home I was not able to follow the challenge, I did delay the deadline and today challenge ends officially.

Yipeee!!! I did 5 litres today. Now, overall progress....
I was able to drink 4 liters for ALL these days. At some days I actually finished 5 liters too.

Change in me?

Okay, as I had already written, I just expected me to drink water even on my busy days (normal days and not the emergency ones)  and I did that successfully. I generally drink out my emotions in water so that too I increased so that my water intake will increase.

Bonus Benefits...

Okay, now I know these are not only because of this drinking water challenge, and I am not at all claiming them for drinking enough water. But these are few things that I experienced recently.
1) I have lost some of my post-pregnancy weight. Wohooo...! I am so glad to say this. I was actually fitting in my old clothes last few days, my brain understood this thing but still when I actually saw that number on scale today, I was too happy to believe. Anyway, I am not that much fat or something but yes, I do have belly fat, all thanks to baby delivery..and that's the only thing I would want to reduce.
2) I don't actually thought this would happen but I am being questioned for the secret of the glow on my face. Ahh... really? Huh.. huh...  :)
3) I have got compliments recently that I have got such a lovely hair! Oh yeah...I know... but keep saying that... :)

Anyway, so my point is only that all these things got definitely some benefit from my drinking water challenge. My challenge just don't end here... I will be continuing drinking water same way... It has become habit now. I am crossing off one more thing from my daily TODO list which became habit and doesn't need any more to be on my official "TO-DO" list because it will be obvious.

Dreamy Eyes....




Alright,so if you have known me for some time or if you are my long time reader, you know dreams are an important part of my life. I ACTUALLY see the dreams which somehow sketch my current and future life. It is said that dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you... I truly believe... I have actually spent so much time in past just to understand the meaning of the dream I had... Well, now I don't do it much often ...



And then I get musical dreams too. Being a music lover, I ACTUALLY hear music in my sleep. May be my heart is actually singing but I really feel that I am hearing the music ( Well, this fact played major role in my pregnancy period. About that, may be sometime later...)




Alright so today early in the morning, I had a Lovely dream with background music of this song Dil Duffer. Come on... I haven't even heard this song for long time. Wait -a - minute!

Oh.My.God! Brain didn't even accept that heart was behaving Duffer but in sleep it has not only accepted but it's playing music too. Obviously, so even before cooking food,  my first task this morning became actually listening to this song. I was also missing my ex-colleague friend. She used to love this song and we would discuss anything...like how stupid songs we listen...  any stupid thing on the planet...without judging each other... and would laugh out.
                      

Anyway  I was thinking that, in my dreams all the people are so much lovelier than they are in real life...Or is it the fact that all the people are actually lovely and nice. There are just situations which don't bring out the nice or lovely person in them for a given time when I am with them may be. Because, as I always say, I only meet good people in life. Knock on the wood but everybody I encounter anywhere is nice somewhere.

Just a thought came, in school, I used to do telepathy experiments with my best friend.... may be my dreams are outcome of that kind of thing.. because in my dream, even the person who talk less in real life keeps chit-chatting. Anyway, my mood is good, I am all dreamy and I am not letting anyone and I mean anyone...ruin that mood today... Okay? Have a Dreamy Day....!

Drinking Water Challenge and Life Update

Alright so good things first... I did extremely well on the water drinking challenge and was successful finishing at-least 4 liters each day.  Exception : fasting days --2 - which were seen unseen actually... so it was kind-a planned. Another was an emergency in life...

Alright... so emergency was my little kid was hospitalized due to convulsion. This was first time he had this thing and in my entire life I had not seen anything like that. My younger brother or even my mother had not experienced such thing before so when did it actually happened, WE WERE SCARED and I was breathless. Okay so here is flashback...

That early morning, my boy came closer to me in the bed and I felt him warm. The night before we had gone out late in the night to see the Ganeshotsav celebrations and he had done so much fun that he did not slept even after past midnight. So in my morning sleep my brain little bit realize that my kid may have fever since I was feeling something warm. But before I woke up he suddenly got up with jerk and then he had rolled his eyes up, his hands and legs were stiffened and he was not responding at all... he was not even listening to me... he was not even looking at me... he was not even recognizing me... me... I am his mother... I think I am his world... now...  I was .. I mean.. I cant say...I don't even want to remember those moments... I was simply shocked, breathless. My younger brother and I took my kid in hand we rushed to nearest open hospital. My younger brother and I kept talking to my kid, I kept rubbing him all over his body, we knew one thing that we shouldn't let my kid close his eyes and so we were trying hard, by speaking, doing fun and many things while my brother riding his motorcycle. He was still not responding to anything. The nearest 24-hour open hospital staff looked at my kid and suggested to take him to 2 big names of the hospitals in the city. Oh God.. We still ran and continued our journey to the nearest hospital. Well, at this time suddenly, he produced a sound from mouth and I was bit relieved, he responded.... I kept on talking and rubbing and within few minutes he started crying.. Oh God.. I was more relieved... I felt my kid was back from where he has gone for those few minutes...  I just jumped from the motorcycle and looking at me the security guard automatically opened emergency ward door and there we were... The staff attached him few machines and monitored his pulse rate. I was not understanding a word there... 94-96... Oh God, I thought why I dont have knowledge about these medical things... I was not understanding anything. The doctor who had seen him first has gone to call some another doctor and those sisters and brothers were just looking at those machine readings.. I was worried and the mother in me roared... "Will you please do something"? and then that nurse brother took cold water and sprinkled it over my kid's body and guess what he was back and I felt he was normal now. Yes, my kid was recognizing me and was talking to me. Oh God... Thank You so much...  This is second time when I never realize till such emergency that how much I love my kid.
Alright so normal stuff then. Dr. explained us the thing and we hospitalized him. Initially he was too resistant since he wanted to go out but later he got used to it. I actually have recorded him doing all fun in his hospital bed. By God's grace, he didn't have any convulsion later. He did get fever but his highest fever (even just after convulsion) was 101 so I quite didn't understand the relation between fever and convulsion but what I understood now is never ever let him catch the fever. If he is warm or feeling fever is going to catch him just sponge it, let him bathe with cold water, do whatever but temperature should not increase.
Okay so that was different experience in the hospital. First day, first few hours even when  my kid was sleeping I kept worrying. My walking while worrying habit when did came back I too didn't realize. Then there was one sad experience too. One fellow patient, who was 4 years kid died. His father was young man, he was alone and seemed some villager. He didn't even had mobile balance to call his relatives and then that news. We could see that hospital had done it's best but that man lost his child. Few hours later when I saw him, he was still completing the legal formalities with a stone in heart. Oh God...
And then there was all kind of people in the hospital. I met one typical --- kind of lady who had husband hospitalized with cancer but she was more worried with the fact that I had wore same Yoga pants for 3 days. What? Are you serious? I was sleeping when all this thing happened and I rushed here. When my kid became normal, I wore jacket n etc that my mother carried later. Then even though my mother was carrying my clothes to hospital in her visits I didn't feel to change and I don't find anything wrong in that. I was not even thinking about my clothes until the time that lady pointed it out.  Aye Hello.... okay, these are decent yoga pants and I am comfortable in them and by the way what I wear is none of your business... Off course, I didn't say all this..I knew she had bigger problems in her life than my yoga pants.  I just smiled wide and wished all the best to her.
My kid is better now. He did feel fever upto a week later but no convulsions. Knock on the wood.
Anyway, so back to drinking water challenge.. The challenge was failed drastically for those 3 days. The first day I didn't even had a single glass of water. Fourth day onward I picked up challenge back and finished 4 liters each day.

What is that one last address in your life?

As stated earlier, these days because of the festival going on, we are supposed to spend as much time in soul purification. Obviously, I am dedicating considerable amount of my available time in my religious activities. After visiting temple, there is Vyakhyan or Pravachan as some people call it going on and I should be attending it. In this, a Guru - master guides on few aspects. Due to many things I am not able to attend it completely but I do my best as I can before going to work.
So one of the points that I liked today was the MaharajSaab (Master) did ask a question...." Who is that one last address in your life whose whatever thing said, you will be obeying it 100% without doing any arguments or applying any logic?".
Oh. My.God. Not even my kid has that. But wait, yes, I do have it my life....
