Sex or Dinner – Which Is Better? After sex (or is it before?) food, particularly natural foods, is my next favourite thing! There was a time in my life when I was grossly overweight. I say grossly not because of society’s standards of beauty. I simply was not happy with the 210 pounds that I was packing. My baby pictures are that of a fat but cute little thing. My mother said that I was close to nine pounds at birth and I kept the weight up until I started
Wellness And Foods You Choose Anyone who reads this blog with any regularity know that when it comes to diet and exercising I am no expert, wannabe expert, advocate of working out, health and fitness guru – do I need to go on? I love all kinds of foods but have not made the best choices about the ones that I eat. There has been one disease or another plaguing me since my 23rd birthday. My father died from the complications arising from diabetes and that he was an alcoholic.
Connecting Daily Every morning, except for her days off, my daughter calls me around 7:30 and then again around 8:45 just before she steps into her workplace. Our conversations cover the extremely important issues of the world to the mundane. This relationship with my daughter, this closeness took years to cultivate.

Hardly able to breathe, I reached for the rear view mirror of my truck and spun it so hard towards me that it almost broke off. Checking my eyes to see whether a capillary or two had burst, oozing blood and turning my yes red as it had done before, I was happy to
Life Can Be Messy There is a popular quote from which many posters have been made and widely circulated across social media. It sounds catchy and has that 1-2-3 punch line. Yet, it is hard not to wonder how many people really get it? “You don’t have to attend every argument you are invited to.” It has been attributed to every known celebrity, guru and motivational speaker. However, according to several sources the real author is unknown. What else is hardly known is that this quote is about filters through
The Next Big Thing Wellness is the new cool. It is a hot commodity and this trend has grown for a few years now. It is more than about being fit, granted that is the focus of many disciples of the “wellness movement.” “Paul Pilzer in his book ‘The Wellness revolution’ predicted that wellness might become a USD200 billion worth industry – from health to beauty to food and medicine. And his expectations are becoming true, at least in terms of newly widespread lifestyle approaches. It is enough if we
Wanna Have A Baby? To be a dad or not to be a dad – remains one of the ultimate life questions. For men at least. We have all seen that look that flits across a woman’s face when she sees another woman and her newborn baby in the park and her thoughts goes to having a baby of her own. For men, it is a little different. Becoming a dad takes a lot of thought and every man has fears that need to be smoldered before he can take

Ms Claudette (the amazing woman running this blog), very sweetly invited me to write an article for her readers related to the women of Pakistan. She said she wanted to introduce her readers to the depths and breadths of the lives of women around our world. I did that article – “Wellness And Pakistani Woman:
