I have been working out since 2013. It’s been 4 wonderful years of sweat, soreness, pain and growth. There has been a massive transformation in every aspect of my life – I am not only physically fitter, but I feel stronger mentally, physically as well as emotionally. Being on this fitness journey has made me learn patience, determination, and helped me become happier, more forgiving, and grateful for what I have. It has also helped me with my anxiety. I am also in love, like all the time! I have learnt to appreciate so much about life, and I’ve realised how we live our lives in jealousy, insecurity, fighting over petty issues, hanging on to things that happened in the past. I don’t know the science behind it, but I can assure you that fitness helps you become the bigger person, ALWAYS. That’s why the fitness community is such a…
** This article has been written by Dimple Dhalwani Depression is more common than what you think it is, it’s just the intensity that makes the difference. Whether it’s been a temporary phase of depression or a long term disease that you’ve been dealing with, let’s admit it, we have all had our low moments. Not convinced? Losing a job, death of a loved one, death of a pet, break ups, all of them make us experience depression in some form. Social rejection, peer pressure, any form of abuse, or even unequal treatment of siblings in childhood can lead on to depression. One thing to note here is that while we realise we are suffering, we do not wan to do anything about it. In fact there are times when we don’t want to accept it either! If we do wish to accept it, we make it an internal struggle and tell ourselves that…

It’s peanut butter jelly time! (Ok I just had to say this because every time I hear peanut butter I break into this dance in my head) Ok moving on, I am going to talk about peanut butter in this post. Or rather Yogesh Diddee, the boy you might have seen all over my social media, has something to share about his beloved peanut butter. Over to him. Nowadays it is easy to get hold of a jar of peanut butter at your local grocery store. But how many of you know those additives and preservatives are doing more harm than good? In fact they are largely responsible for the sugar imbalance in your body. So does that mean peanut butter is unhealthy? Hell no! I’ve been hitting the gym for the last 5 years, I eat clean, and peanut butter has a large part to play in my diet.…
I have been a little caught up, sorry about not posting anything in this section earlier. To be honest I have only been running- there is no problem that a good run can’t cure. I even clocked a good 5km in 24min the other day I was extremely frustrated with things around me. So yeah, hey, I am not complaining!
I won’t deny it. I secretly love being pampered. Hot water baths, berry-scented moisturizers and perfumes, nail painting, foot massages, binging on cake, dressing up, the works! Twice a month I gift myself a special treat with a spa, and boy oh boy do I love these days! Work for 15hours for 10 out of 14 days and treat yourself to a deep tissue massage…*sigh* Life is beautiful.
Hello there! I’m back with some fitness gyaan. I found this particular HIIT exercise on Pinterest, and have made no changes to it whatsoever. It looks difficult, which is why I wanted to try it in the first place (have had to increase the intensity of workouts after the obstacle race I completed 2 weeks ago that had me running 12km on the hill, along with rope climbing, wall climbing, bar crossing, crawling and a whole lot of other jazz. Running on plain ground after that has been a JOKE)
Hello! I am back with another set of home-workouts. In the past one month I have helped many people design their own workouts. It’s not rocket science once you get the hang of it- you will know what kind of HIITs workouts suit your body. This one is a relatively simple one. Hope it helps-
Birthday week has started off on a very healthy note. RAW Pressery sent me 6 bottles of health juices on Monday and trust me the timing couldn’t have been better. As you know I have been working really hard to get back the four-pack I had last year. In related good news, I can now flaunt them off again. More of that later :D
My diet for the last 3 weeks has been made up of watermelons, watermelon juice, mangoes, bananas, tomato soup and a lot of protein in the form of chicken (grilled, baked) I have been tempted to eat a lot of junk food but I am extremely proud of my will power right now. So receiving these bottles had me jumping up and down with joy because HELLO ABS!
Summer is here, and I have a beach vacay planned. Which means the clothes shall go off and the bikinis shall come on. Which means I need to work on the abs that are currently hidden under a light layer of what I’d like to guess are the cupcakes I’ve been gorging on for the last 3 months.
It’s now time to kick some ass!
