Walking into a nearby restaurant, Ankur orders a huge breakfast of toasts, pan cakes, boiled eggs, omelets, hot chocolate and coffee. He absolutely insists that we consume all of what he has ordered as there is a long day ahead and we might have to forgo the lunch. Stuff myself to the best ability but absolutely no match for him!
Our first stop is to one of the most spectacular monastery of Ladakh, the buildings of which can be seen from far away and seem to tumble down the steep hillside, it presents an amazing sight. This Gelugpa sect monastery dates back to 11th century and accommodates over 100 monks. Phagpa Shesrab is said to be the founder, who had translated many Sanskrit Buddhist writings into Tibetan. Presently the gompa is under the patronage of Tensing Chogyal, a brother of H.H. Dalai Lama.
Reaching at the base of the hill with fascinating streaks of colors, on which the monastery sits, is asked about my preference between walking and driving up. After such a heavy breakfast, was secretly hoping that we would drive up but admitting such is embarrassing, thus let my travel mate decide. Should have known that walking up would be the natural choice!
The steep path leading up to the chapels situated on the top threads through a maze of old structures which are mostly monk’s quarters. While struggling with the upward climb the hoodie sweatshirt soon gets wrinkled as a used Kleenex tissue soaked with perspiration. Give up any further desire to beat Ankur to reach the top, who looks completely unruffled and almost fly rather than walk!
Having covered about slightly more than half the distance, the lungs seem to be ready to explode and the throat feels incredibly parched. Now it is a matter of putting one foot before the other, accept that it is fine to climb at my own pace, rest for a moment and take a sip when necessary.
Note: Dear friends and contacts,
After struggling for months with the injury had been advised by the doctor to return to the gym for weight training in addition to swimming, cycling, walking and most importantly to resume normal life. So, did what someone like me is expected to do, went back to the Himalayas for a ‘trial’!
It was a very short break, but one that triggered long winter travel plans! Would like to thank each of you for your warm wishes and support, it indeed meant a lot and gave me the strength to get back to my feet, do another travel and live to tell another tale! 🙂

With exercise, if you choose something that you do not like doing, you're not likely to keep it up and lose focus. Think about this for a minute, if you do not like running you're hardly going to keep forcing yourself out of bed at 7am, especially during the winter when it's cold. If you can not find something you like, just go for the thing you hate the least. This is usually walking.
When I first started eating healthy i struggled with fighting my hunger If you start to feel hungry, eat something. Just ensure you eat decent healthy foods and do not eat too much of it. It's important that you eat enough to satisfy your hunger and balance your blood sugar. Remember you are trying to lose weight, so you'll only be setting yourself back if you eat junk food.
It does not seem right when you get up and eat breakfast and find yourself even more hungry later in the morning than usual. But eating more in the morning can help cut down hunger later in the day, and evening time is when people are much more likely to over eat. Eating a healthy healthy breakfast in the morning will set you off on the right foot.

You can space it out into two minute sessions with a thirty second break in between.
