"Never Take Your Body For Granted...."

I work out under a trainer in the gym every morning and have a controlled diet with essential protein and vitamin supplements. Yes, I go to the gym early seven days a week and even on days when I’ve called it a night a little late the day before and have had less sleep. But on such days, I compensate. My workout is less vigorous if there has been less sleep. Also, I catch up on it by taking a nap in the afternoon.

I depend upon guidance from my fitness trainer. With age, many considerations are taken into account. For example, the heart rate and stress limitations when you are doing cardio. The amount of weight you push also changes, for you must keep in mind that building muscles at the age of 65 is a long and tough procedure.

Sometimes, it’s more important to just maintain rather than build. And a little yoga to keep the body breathing well and supple.

Q.21 What does your fitness regime entail?

I learnt a long time ago that it should be a reflection of your persona, a way of life and not just a ritual or a regime. There are no short-cuts. Consistency is the key. One small slip and you are worse off than when you began. Moderation is important. Don’t be too harsh on yourself. Be a kid and indulge in chocolates once in awhile. Make sure to sweat out the toxins though cardio, dancing and yoga. One thing that I absolutely can’t do without is meditation.

Q.22 You are so fit and well-toned; do you exercise to keep yourself toned?

I enjoy my workouts. I know the results are invaluable and try to be as regular as possible. I am a cleanliness fanatic by nature. I love to arrange and re-arrange my house, which is a workout in itself. I enjoy dancing and feel that it’s a natural workout for me. I absolutely love gardening and recommend it to everyone, as the effect is therapeutic.

Q.23 For the Indian women, the stomach and the hips are the biggest problems areas. Can you please advise ways to keep the body firm and fit?

It is a wrong notion that women have, to blame it on rich Indian foods or pregnancy and kids. That’s just an excuse. If you go to back to your roots, ayurveda and yoga will teach you that Indian food with its incredible spices, possess healing properties for any and every ailment. I’ve been a vegetarian for most part of my life and can endorse the fact that it affects the way you think perceive life. Yes, after an age it is difficult to maintain a slim waist. For this, I would say invest in good veggies like broccoli, avocado, asparagus and a handful of nuts like pistachios, walnuts and also fruits like blueberries, pomegranates. Try to remember to truck your stomach in at all times and make sure to do your ab-workout every alternate day.

Q.24 For how long have you been practicing yoga?

The grand dame, Rama Bans put me onto yoga. Way back in 1982, I did an audio called ‘Mind and Body Temple’, which was so apt. If you remember to worship and respect what god has given you, which is your mind and body, you will realize that he dwells in you and you will never forget that you are an integral part of the creator.

Q25. What is truly your relationship to time, are you afraid of ageing?

In my case it is the way I’ve lived my life. I am still child-like by nature. It is in the genes. I believe I am a late bloomer, and I’ve managed to retain my vulnerability and innocence. My mom hardly had grey hair and barely needed glasses. My dad was very active and played badminton and did yoga all his life. My paternal grandmother lived to be almost hundred. I have ‘savla’ skin, which tends to age slower than fair skin. I am a simple, fun-loving, easy-going girl, with very strong middle-class upbringing. I’ve always chosen to focus on the things that are in my control and never sulked or brooded when things were out of control; this really helps. Time does not feature in my scheme of things!

Q.26 To confront ageing, did you decide to change, at a certain time in your life, your looks, lifestyle or habits?

I did make a conscious choice to change my eating habits and lifestyle, but not to confront the natural process of ageing, that’s futile; it was more a case of making the best of my assets and working on my weak points to make a long term difference for the better…… the more I practiced, it become a habit and now it has the become best decision I’ve made. That was three decades ago and the results are in plain view for all to see.

Q.27 What according to you is the best way to de-tress after a long day at work?

I don’t think of it as ‘de-stressing’ for the simple reason that I don’t allow anything to cause stress in my life. It is a such a waste of time and energy. I am a strong willed person and over the years have mastered the art of weeding out the negative.

My way of relaxing – a bit of doodling, singing and more importantly, meditation. What I really enjoy doing is watching Discovery of National Geographic channels to imbibe some traits the animals use to survive and their tactics in adverse situation. I am a sincere student of life and take life’s lessons from nature and animals, their way of functioning which according to me is the most natural way.
