Sparkle #203: Hey 2017 – Let’s Do This!

Happy 2017 to all you happy, shiny people! There’s something about 2017 that’s got me all excited and optimistic – this year feels like it’s going to be magical. Or maybe this is just the hope that kicks in with the start of a new year talking. 365 days, 52 weeks and 12 splendid months which we can fill with fresh moments and new stories. So let’s go all out this year and make lots of magical memories. Every year in January, I do a post on new year resolutions (2015, 2016) or share printables (2015, 2016) which could help us plan better for the year ahead.…

Sparkle #185: Yoga Asanas for a Flat Stomach

Muffin top, love handles, belly fat – call it by whatever name you want, but it will still generate the same emotion – panic! Stomach is the most stubborn and unsightly of places to gain weight, and any fat in this area is sure to send alarm bells ringing in everyone’s head. Gaining fat on your belly is also an indication that your lifestyle is going awry. While a little fluctuation in weight now and then is all right, if you start putting on weight on your stomach, it might be a good idea to pay attention to what you are eating and how you are exercising. The more your…

Sparkle #146: Winter Workouts

This week on the blog we are welcoming the winter season together! Each day, I am going to talk about one of my favorite winter activities and ask you to do the same. We always start the week on the blog with an inspirational note, talking either about health and fitness or focusing on positive sayings. Winter can be a tough season to stay on track with both diet and workout schedules. I personally find it hard to get up for my morning walk or run, and don’t feel motivated enough to hit the gym late in the evening. So what does one do to make…

Sparkle #141: Clean Eating Cookie Recipe

This week is turning out to be one of those weeks when all you want is the weekend, FRIENDS re-runs on TV and chocolate! Actually, make that lots of chocolate! Any other day and I would have reached out for a decadent slice of chocolate cake. But I have been watching my diet for the last two weeks and don’t want to go off track by binge eating due to work stress. So I turned to the internet to look for healthy dessert recipes which would be delicious and easy to make, thus satisfying my craving for something sweet without adding any feelings of guilt. To my delight, I discovered…

Sparkle #138: Yoga Cards for Women

Happy Monday people! It is the beginning of the week, which means it’s time to share something inspirational on the blog. I practice Yoga daily, and even though it has been 4 lovely years, I know I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a Yogi in the true sense of the word. Over the last few years, I have seen a change in my body structure, eating and lifestyle habits. My current practice is focused more on improving flexibility and mindfulness. I visit lots of websites and blogs to keep myself updated and to learn various tips and…
