Nagging helped. Hubby finally wrote a post. 😛 – Rati
While working behind the scenes on my lovely wife’s blog, I get to read everyone’s comments over here. I like to see the number of friends Rati has made over here and how all you great girls love to explore makeup and cosmetics. She had often asked me in the past to write over here but unfortunately I could never find the time or the topic to write about. Also, being read and judged by a female crowd is sure to give a gent the heebies jeebies. 🙂 Anyhow, I have been wondering lately why she never writes about a topic that is so essential to beauty- physical attractiveness- that I decided to finally pick up my keyboard and set the record straight. We are both gym lovers. Until the past 3 months, we have been going to the gym regularly. Then suddenly, Rati sprained her foot and had to put a brake on her gymming. And now when she got cured and we were discussing about renewing our gym membership, I had a fall on Holi and sprained my foot. As it looks, all our troubles are coming from below the waist. 🙂
I teach Math to college students. And to me explaining with Math becomes much simpler. If I was concentrating on beauty, I would not play against percentage. For example, the surface area of a human head in adults is roughly about 9% of the whole body so if I am spending time in beautifying the head only (face, hair, eyes, etc..) I am playing against percentage. If my aim is to truly look beautiful, I would rather play with the percentage and take care of the other 90% of the body first. By which I mean that I would take time out to stay fit before I start with the makeup. Case in point is the picture above- which guy would see which lipstick or nail paint has this lass applied?
Now now ladies, are you reading my post or are you checking out Mr. Bond? 😛 Not that I have to drive my point home but to majority of boys, a pimpled girl with a great body would be more attractive than a smooth-skinned girl with a sloppy one. So take care of your tummy, hips and thighs. Does that mean a walk in the park every morning? Actually no; I have never seen any of the aunties getting slimmer by walking in the park in my school days. What you have to do is simple- hit the gym. Start working out. Probably going to gym is so painstaking, and because exercising takes a lot of effort, this is the reason that many women don’t include that in their beauty list.
But it does not take so much effort as we imagine to go to the gym regularly. Start small; spend 10 minutes on the treadmill initially, do some abs exercises, do some twisting with less reps, etc. Slowly, if you are serious that is, your minutes and reps would increase. The weights would start getting heavier and the treadmill would start getting faster. And you start burning more and more fat in the gym by default. And along with it would come a sense of joy as you start feeling your tummy, all tight and tucked in, while walking, your breasts hanging in shape, and your thighs not jutting out improperly.
That’s the best thing about physical fitness – it lasts the whole day unlike your lipstick, and it works with every person no matter what his/her skin colour is. The best part is that it gives you REAL self confidence unlike the beauty products. The confidence will show in your walk, in your work, and in your relationships.
So what are you waiting for, visit your nearest gym and check out their charges. Do ask if they have a trainer because a trainer is a must. A trainer not only achieves results faster for you but also keeps you motivated. So do ask about the trainer.
So do yourself this favour now. Start hitting the gym, start working out, and become REAL beautiful now. 🙂
