Wondering and worrying at night

It’s 3:30 a.m. and I am unable to sleep. My husband made me watch that stupid horror movie. Now I am scared. 

I am worried too. I have to wakeup early in the morning tomorrow for gym. I was unable to go to the gym for whole week. May be more that that coz of rains. It always rain at the time of gym. I’m worried coz I need to lose weight and not able to mend my eating habits. Unable to quit sugar. I want to be skinny again. I want to wear all those pretty clothes that I used to wear 3 years back.

I have itchy eyes during rains. I wonder when will the rains be over. It’s so slippery everywhere. I like rains but this time it’s been many days that it has been raining. And now I m hating it. I m unable to go to gym or shopping or anywhere.

I’m worried coz next month I’m going to open my sewing and design studio. I have loads of things to do. I wonder what kind of customers will be there. I don’t like people who fight and argue. Will I be able to make their perfect fitting clothes?  Will they be satisfied? I’m tensed now. I am missing my mom nd dad.I wish if they would be here with me in Lucknow. It would have been easier for me then.

Also I am feeling hungry. Want to eat something really nice but don’t know what. Even Maggi is out of stock. Just ate a 2-3 biscuits with water.

I wonder why I am not feeling sleepy. I was really tired and super sleepy when I was making dinner. But now… There r lots of things going in my head. 

Oh god, I need to sleep.

I am in love with polka dot these days. But plaids are my all time favorite.​ Here i am wearing Black Polka dot kurti with red plaid/checks waist coat… Paired with red Patiala-shahi salwar.. This is one is my favorite outfit.. I always love wearing patialashahi salwar suits on a casual day.

Black and white combined with red. I like it.

I’ve not accessorised or put any makeup because it’s too hot and humid here in Lucknow. Uff…ye chip chip garmi..

Schezwan Onion Roll

Sometimes we want to eat something different and “hat ke” from regular food like daal, rice, roti, vegetables and all. My husband  always makes “farmaaish”/demand to make something different for evening snack. And I experiment with food. 😉

Well, a few days back i tried to make this schezwan onion roll. And it turns out really tasty. It’s very simple, quick and easy to make.

Step 1: Make a Paratha and apply one full spoon of Ching’s Schezwan Chutney on that.

Step 2: Now put thinly sliced onion. Arrange it properly on one side.
Step 3: Add jalapeno pepper

Step 4: Now make a roll and eat it up.

Trust me.. it tastes yumm. I make it often for my husband as he love the taste of onion like anything…

For making this Roll i used Ching’s schezwan chutney, American garden’s jalapeno pepper, Onion and Paratha.

It’s very simple and quick to make. Do try it and tell me how you like the taste.

No Sweets for next 30 days..

So, for next 30 days I am not going to have sugar…. I mean direct sugar at all, no Sweet’s, no cakes, no chocolates, no halwa… And no milk tea.

Yes I am addicted to tea. I am always ready to have tea and at any time..

As per my routine, First thing in the morning is I have strong tea/coffee with milk and strong sugar.. And not only one cup, It’s 2or 3 cups and most of the times its mug in the morning… And then one cup tea after lunch and then two more cups tea in the evening… Also I eat any sweet thing after dinner like halwa, chocolate, any mithai, and if nothing sweet is available then I eat one spoon sugar… I know its bad. :/ and because of this bad habit I am gaining weight slowly. And I am really worried.

So, for next one month I am trying to break this habit of consuming sweet things, sweet milk tea/coffee and will opt for green tea or black coffee without milk and sugar.

One cup in the morning and one cup in the evening…

Let’s see if I can do that for next 30 days.

Take care
Kaur

Outfit of the day – Rakshabandhan

Hello everyone!
Hope you all are doing great.
This year August was not a great month for me. I was sick the whole month. As soon as I recovered with the one, the other infection caught me. 😦 It started with eye allergy, then I got sneezing allergy with changing weather, then soar throat, and in the last I got viral fever. 😥
Now, let’s move to my outfit that I wore on Rakshabandhan. We celebrated rakshabandhan at my husband’s aunt’s (Mausi) place. Though I miss my brother and cousins, it was a great fun with my in-laws.
I wore green Patiala suit at the occasion paired with golden footwear, pearl jewellery and a wrist watch.
I love wearing ethnic clothes on festivals, specially Patiala suits. I also like sarees.
