Why do I have a gut feeling that Roger would win the US Open 2015?

“Why I see Roger holding that US OPEN trophy once more and this year?”

Hey folks! As some of you may have read my last blog about why it doesn’t matter even if Roger doesn’t win even a single Grand slam anymore. Well, today I want to tell you about my feelings, this gut feeling or whatever you may call it that I want to share with you. Before I reveal my thoughts to you on why he would win this grand slam or on what basis my sixth sense even if there is any, is telling me that, i want to admit that I m not a huge tennis follower as some of you maybe but I have been a big follower of Federer himself. I have been watching him as far back as the Wimbledon 2007 final when I was 13 at the time. I just had a glimpse of him in the headlines, him cheering after winning the final point against Rafael Nadal and ever since I have been closely watching him and I am 21 now! Wow! Time passes by quickly!

So Last night as I was watching his encounter with John Isner, and I don’t know if you had the same feeling or something but I literally shouted “WOW!” and was like “This guy is still the best!” Those were not just words of a fan, being cheered or something but he did mesmerize me by his extraordinary shots. His ever-swift movements on the court and some of his returns specially the one down the line left me baffled. And as I stated earlier I have been watching him closely for 8 years now, and he left such a mark after this match that I cant stop thinking why he shouldn’t win the tournament. This is the first reason why I am so positive about his chances.

Secondly, the way he has been playing throughout the tournament without losing a single set up till now, and similarly the way he played last month in Cincinnati all the way to the final without dropping a set and winning it, is telling me out loud that Roger is going to clinch this in a similar fashion. But to tell you beforehand, I am not sure about him winning all the sets but definitely winning the title.

But how could you say that in the presence of Djokovic? I know, and the Novak factor did pinch me but for a while. I admit that he is the no.1 and he is playing great and is the guy to beat. But when I think of his loss against Roger in the Cincinnati final last month, it senses
me that similar thing is going happen and that is if Roger faces him in the final. Lol if you know what I mean!

How to lose or maintain weight?

The followings are some of the statistics on obesity and overweight from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2009–2010 in the U.S.

  • More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or obese.
  • More than 1 in 3 adults are considered to be obese.
  • More than 1 in 20 adults are considered to have extreme obesity.
  • About one-third of children and adolescents ages 6 to 19 are considered to be overweigh or obese.
  • More than 1 in 6 children and adolescents ages 6 to 19 are considered to be obese.           Overweight refers to an excess amount of body weight that may come from muscles, bone, fat, and water. Obesity refers to an excess amount of body fat

As you know the name of the topic, let me tell you that the amount of discussions on losing or maintaining weights is countless. There are endless and all sorts of formulas and technics that you can find everywhere and apply them to yourselves. You can find them on Google, health magazines, T.V commercials, books, articles and etc., every source providing their own knowledge and expertise on weight issues. And similarly I have gone through most of that stuff trying to figure out the solutions for tackling obesity or weight maintaining. Most of the stuff talked about what diet to follow or the amount of exercises to do, which slimming pills to take or how minimizing on carbs is a good idea and all that stuff. And the conclusion that I came up with is that all these different technics on losing or maintaining weight is a good strategy and if followed the right way and on consistent basis does help to prevent obesity. But somewhere along the line I realized that not everyone can do that, right? For many of us it can be very demanding. Yes they are very logical and befitting but not everyone has the energy and the time to implement them. This is the reason that I tried to come up with ways that are easy for anyone to follow without being all stressed out.

1.Forget about it.

The number one thing to do is free your mind of everything that has do with losing weight. Take it out of your mind that you want to lose weight or you are on a diet. The reason I m asking you to do that is if you are thinking about it, you just can’t do it. Tell me one thing that you did when you were stressed out. It happens with many of us. How many people do you know that lost a considerable amount of weight thinking about it? On the contrary, tell me the various instances when people told you that they have lost substantial weight that they can’t even remember how. So no.1 empty your mind.

  1. Eat whatever you like but in standard amount.

It is very important to eat anything you like and please I beg you, don’t follow a strict diet. Don’t think that you can eat certain things and not others. You are allowed to eat anything. This is what exactly happens when most of the time we are on a strict diet with specific choices and after a week or so it gets burdensome. And we start consuming ample amount of food, which we never thought of even touching. So no.2 eat whatever you like! But in average amount.

  1. Involve yourself in a physical activity regularly.

This is as essential as anything, the movement of the body that requires energy expenditure is a must. Here is a thought, if you are a lazy kind of guy like me, then do something that you like. It is not necessary that you have to run everyday for 30 min or do swimming or cycling. You could do anything, be it playing tennis, basketball or badminton. And you don’t have to do that for hours and hours. 30min to 1hr is enough. However, there is a small condition to it. Whatever you do, it should make you sweat or make you breath faster. And you can only do that consistently if you are doing what you like.

If you think about it, they are very easy to follow and every one of us can put these steps into effect. Although I d suggest beforehand not to expect any immediate results. But if you adopt them, they can do wonders for you in the long term, not only in helping you lose weight but maintaining it and leading a healthier and stress-less life.
