Monsoon months are the hardest for me when it comes to my line of work and this monsoon season has been one of the worst. With multiple shoots throughout the day and Yoga classes from 6 in the morning, I am completely drained by mid-day. The humidity makes matters worse as I have a tendency of sweating a lot. I can feel all the salts leaving my body. It’s not that I don’t drink enough water, I do and yet I feel dehydrated and fatigued. On certain days, I just can’t move and feel terribly weak. Now we all know…

MY FITNESS MANTRA Fitness and has always been a part of my life. I started working out and eating right from the time I was in school. There isn’t a single diet that I haven’t followed. Be it no carbs, high protein, or only carbs and nothing else. Doing fruit cleanses or a GM diet. By the way, I do not recommend GM to anyone! Invariably, I would skip meals, especially breakfast. I wanted to lose weight quickly, so what better way to do it than to just not eat. Not Eat! – that’s where I got it wrong! I…

The initial drive to be fit and healthy + working out everyday is exhilarating. You never skip a gym session and you are motivated to push yourself harder everyday ! You’ve worked hard to build the body  you desire, and you are now ready to flaunt it. You either go on a holiday, attend a friend’s wedding, go for a weekend get away . All in the hopes of getting to show off that bod. Meanwhile you’ve let go off your ab and leg day and also done a bit binge eating ! We get it , you starved yourself from…

I’ve always had a stamina problem. Even as a child, I could run fast but not for too long. My father made it a point to take me running every weekend. Its suffice to say, that I didn’t fancy that much. In school I was always a part of the relay team, till I changed cities. I was no longer running, the new school didn’t even have a sports day and we wonder why our athletes don’t win medals in the Olympics. Anywhu lets keep that topic for some other day. I played tennis, swam and learnt classical dance from…

I am constantly asked about stretches to tone up or lose weight from the legs ! Let be honest here, we all want those toned, skinny legs but not everyone can get it and that’s absolutely fine. You are built a certain way, lets call it genetics. Your body type is different from a 5’10 super model with long thin legs. Stop competing with that person. Stop berating your body. Stop finding faults in it all the time. Your health is what matters not your thigh gap. I always say how legs have concentrated fat stored. Not like the belly…

We all have them, we all struggle with them! In my opinion they are the most difficult part of the body to tone. I am talking about our lovely love handles a.k.a. Obliques Try wearing low waist jeans, there goes those lumps flopping from the sides. Try wearing a bodycon dress; the side piece of flesh just pops out even more. You could have a toned flat stomach but still struggle with love handles. I can easily tone any part of my body with regular exercising but my obliques give me nightmares. That’s the only part of my body I…
