Hot water with Lemon juice and other health food habits

There are so many health food habits that following all of them daily would need us to hire a personal chef only to cater to all our health food habits. Moreover it would take over our regular diet which is not good for health over the long run. Some of the good health food habits are - Hot water with lemon juice, Indian Gooseberry (amla) juice, Coriander juice, Aloe Vera juice, Sprouts, boiled black gram or horse gram with some jaggery, Spirulina, Flax seeds and the list can go on and on. Now following all these on a daily basis is virtually impossible. 

Recently I started having hot water with lemon juice as soon as I wake up in the morning. It has been about a month now and I feel it is wonderful. However in my opinion the ideal way to have this is after you have had the hot water and lemon juice one should follow it up with a good workout for about 1.5 hours. You should sweat with the workout. Some people prefer to add a spoon of honey to the hot water and lemon juice which is also okay. 

According to me the ideal way to select health food habits is to select any 2 habits depending upon your body needs and kind of workout you do and have 1 habit in rotation. The one that you select in rotation can be followed for say a month and then changed to another one for the next month and so on .This way the body gets well balanced nourishment without reducing or hampering with your normal diet.

Today I was not feeling like going to the park for the morning workout. So I just put on my toe shoes and went for a lovely 2 hour jog into the Cantonment area. Being surrounded by trees and open land while running added to the fire within to jog more and faster. It was much colder than the city and the air felt so fresh and crisp. 

The evening workout (3hours) was a mix of Okinawan weights, ab workouts and some free hand exercises like squats, Burpees and so on.  

This year winter seems to be colder and considering that we are just at the beginning of November, Jukaadoka's are going to feel the cold in their bones at this camp. Sounds like FUN! FUN!! FUN!!!
