Saturday-Pentacle, Week 40 Issue
App of the week –
This week I’m re-featuring one of my favorite Lifestyle App and it’s MyFitnessPal.
If you are on a weight loss journey and feeling it’s not working, chances are you’re doing the diet wrong.
Diet tracking isn’t a very entertaining task. But if you are really serious about making your diet and exercise plans work. Then diet tracking has to be one of the top most priorities for you.
MyFitnessPal is my personal favourite for this purpose. I’ve been using this app even before it was acquired by Under Armour back in 2015. What makes this app useful is the fact that they have a website complimenting their mobile apps and that’s a huge plus. When you are in office having a few moments, you can log your diet from the website there or when you are commuting you can log your diet from mobile app. It’s really easy.
Secondly, they have a large collection of foods and meals, which even includes Indian dishes or meals. So logging a meal is a buttery smooth experience.
In my experience of diet tracking, this app has been really useful and just even the idea of having a look at what you are eating at the end of the day makes sense. It makes you conscious towards your eating choices.
Just in case if I got you curious, you can go check out this app –
My most popular Instagram post recently —
Today’s short story is dedicated to a dear friend and colleague who passed away young, couple of weeks back.⠀
His last message – “Sunsets are proof that endings can be beautiful too.”⠀
Story – ⠀
Endings can be beautiful too!
“I think we’ll miss the sunset. But that’s ok. There is another one tomorrow.” I said.⠀
“No! I don’t want to miss. Let’s try. Uncle, please drive fast!” She said, pushing the cabbie.⠀
We were 5 mins late from the perfect sunset. But still, it was not down under, we caught it right before it was going to be engulfed by the sea.⠀
We sat on a crack on that lighthouse wall and just waited for the dying orange sky to be dark.⠀
Who thought the endings could be beautiful too?⠀

Article(s) I’m enjoying (and pondering) —
Why You Need Emotional Intelligence To Succeed In Business – Yet another good article from Darius Foroux. This article talks about EI (Emotional Intelligence), why it matters more than IQ (Intelligence Quotient) and also shares the process of how to improve your EI. Good Read.
I’m reading/watching/listening to —
Why our screens make us less happy | Adam Alter – This small (under 10 minutes) TED talk by Adam Alter is quickly becomes an eye opener as soon as you are done watching this talk. His psychological analysis of how people use screens and how addictive these screens are, is fascinating.
Adam is an Associate Professor of Marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business, with an affiliated appointment in the New York University Psychology Department.
Quote I’m pondering on lately –
“In a sense, people are our proper occupation. Our job is to do them good and put up with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor from 161 til 180)
Until Next Saturday!
