New year has to be accompanied by the "resolutions".. I, till date, never understood the Secret behind people waiting till new year to make their resolutions, but I used to be a part of the team every year. :)
As it is the trend, I didn't want to break that one. So, was thinking about the new year resolutions and ended up in nothing. i mean NOTHING!!! Usually my new year resolution will be to eat less and reduce weight (yep.. its hard to believe, but that has been my new year resolution for almost 6 years..Very consistent).. This year just thought of doing something but the usual diet-weight resolution stuff. As we assumed that the shops will be closed for the new year, I was browsing my old emails to delete the unwanted junk emails occupying extra space (yep.. Believe me when I say I have way tooo much time). During the process, I opened an email from my old friend which had an attachment (it was attached along with her other emails and it went unnoticed) - here is the storyline, "two friends go to a restaurant before hitting the theaters on a Friday evening.. they order 4-5 different varieties of food. Even before completing their first plate, they receive a call and they leave their plates unfinished.. Restaurant people trash their foods.. When the restaurant is about to close, a guy gets into the kitchen and takes away all the filled trash bags. He then drives his tricycle to a place and shares the food with a group of kids and his family "
While here, I am thinking what to make for dinner and confused as in what to have for dessert - whether to go for tiramisu or german chocolate, there are few thousands sleeping at night with empty stomach!!! it really shook me when I watched the video. So, decided to do my part - not to waste any food from now on!!! hmmm.. a thought that made me feel good.
Then comes the second enlightenment!! My hubby and I went out on new year evening and we went to a restaurant. I somehow like eating outside food. Though it gets expensive at times, I always consoled myself saying that I am kinda helping the restaurant guys by paying some money for the service and doing my part for the economy (yeah. right!!!).. But this time, when I was in the restaurant, I was looking at the crowd. Then the thought came to my mind, "Will it really have any effect if I stop eating outside!!!". Though its really difficult to stop eating outside food altogether (common!!! gotto have some mercy on me), I decided to reduce the frequency of eating outside..
Lets see how things are gonna work out with the resolutions... Atleast I decided on something different than usual ... Hurray!!!!
