The phone that drives me on

I must confess that a camera is the first feature that attracts me to a phone. As I am an avid photographer who has realized that a good camera in a phone needs to be backed by a fast and powerful mobile processor and GPU to do justice to the images that we want to capture. You may have the best camera in the world but by the time you pick it up and focus the moment might already have passed and with it the image that you wanted to capture and could be lost forever. Now I have a breaking news for all those avid photographers including me.I have found three wonderful features in a phone that is fast and powerful powered by hexa-core snapdragon 808 processor that has a 1.8 GHz , 64 bit architecture and Adreno 418 GPU is designed to power the back and front camera of the LG NEXUS 5X camera and automatically becomes the camera phone of choice to capture a range of subjects from selfies to the surroundings. Even the dim light photographs live up to the expectations of a photographer like me who likes  picking up a camera and snapping a pic without any prior notice. A dedicated camera can be bulky and take time to initialize. There are lots of moments when a mobile phone comes in handy and scores over a conventional camera. Specially if the mobile camera is that of LG NEXUS 5X with its powerful camera that catches more light due to the Rear: 12.3 MP2; 1.55 μm; f/2.0 camera and Front: 5 MP camera so its difficult to miss and capture an image even if its in low light.
The second feature that makes me flip for the LG NEXUS 5X is the enhanced security. Our phone has a lot of private and confidential information and since we carry it with us always so it is exposed to a number of people and thus we are at risk of our information, messages and photographs falling into the wrong hands but not if you are a LG NEXUS 5X user for it is equipped with an enhanced yet simplified security interface that is NEXUS IMPRINT that is a strategically located finger print sensor located at the back side so that your personal information remains personal. Now NEXUS imprint would turn on the screen with one touch. So the apps open quicker and the phone becomes more responsive and quicker to operate. It incorporates measurements every time a user uses the phone.This makes NEXUS IMPRINT smarter with every use.

Thirdly since it is build on a robust snapdragon hexa-core 1.8 GHz 64 bit processor so you can do more with your phone in terms of the loading and switching between apps and share and searching photographs. Incidently the processor on this phone is faster than the one on my laptop that I am currently using.

The LG NEXUS 5X is designed to keep all the images and videos well organized so that one can view,search and share them with ease .We can search for an image in our phone based on places, and things in them. This makes it easy for the user to search for and share the images and videos.

Then we lived healthy ever after

Then we lived happily ever after…
There was a time when my husband was physically very active be it swimming, going for walks, playing tennis or going for a jog he did it all. However after marriage as our life progressed he slowly took up a more sedentary lifestyle. With the passage of time the effect of this sedentary lifestyle bagan to show its effect as he started getting more and more busy with his professional life and had less and less time for his personal and sporty life. Slowly his well toned abs were giving way to a paunch and from a slim and trim dude he was growing into a middle aged man with a pot belly and his passion for sports and fitness was being replaced by his passion for food. Everyday he would ask me to prepare a new dish of his choice and as a dutiful wife I would carry out the cooking to suit hism palate and liking. Even though I felt that his indulgences in oily and fried foods were adding to the pounds he was piling up and his couch potato life style only added to the flab that he was accumulating so fast.
Then one day visiting the tailor with him I realized his waistline had outgrown his broad chest considerably and perhaps this was the cause of his lethargy and getting tired so frequently.
I visited the site and asked my husband to input his details and take the free online Weight-Heart Test

This test did a quick check on his BMI by putting in his height, weight and waist details. I realised his BMI was considerably higher then what it should be and this was putting him at great risk.

I wanted my husband back and so I started desperately thinking of getting him in to shape.I followed the instructions on the site and got to know about a diet plan and a walk plan that was detailed on the site.

I talked to him about the issue and he agreed that lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle were adding to his lack of fitness. I am cooking the food for him following the diet plan prescribed on the site. Looking at his condition I have realized the importance of good health so even I took the test on the site and am now following the instructions.
He tried beginning to exercise and going for walks but the inertia of a laid back lifestyle was too much for him to break. He tried a couple of times but could not get to follow a regular walk or fitness regime.
Our anniversary was just around the corner and as a gift for my husband I got him a puppy. The little pup is very active and as a result my husband is always on the move literally running around him. He has started going for  walks in the morning and evenings even though on a pretext of taking the pup of a walk. I have started accompanying him for 30 minute walks and every day we try to go further. Then we go to the park and exercise. While coming back home we take the stairs instead of the lift. Often we have a race to our second floor flat. I have promised him the day he beats me in this race I will give him the gift of his choice. He wants that I should start wearing western outfits and his part of the deal is that the day he gets back to his old fitter self and beat me in this race he would get the desired gift. This is the incentive that keeps him going. Together we are looking after each other and ourselves and progressing on the road to #ProtectHerHeart and live healthy ever after.
