If you’ve come here looking for ways to get a thigh gap. I suggest you go some place else. Thigh gaps are stupid ! Please don’t follow silly fitness trends. Your body is beautiful and appreciate it for what it is, instead of aping other people. Stop this silly thigh gap trend period. We all want shapely legs and toned hips, and its achievable. But women specially have a problem in these areas. For us its difficult to tone these body parts. We store a lot of fat in these parts, which causes cellulite. And if you are fine with…

Who hasn’t suffered from back ache ! I for one have had many episodes; where I am completely paralysed neck down. I can’t move, cant sit, cant sleep. I can’t do anything. Slight movement and I am in a world of excruciating pain. And these have happened not because I was trying a summersault or a headstand and fell on my back. I once got up in the morning with mind numbing pain only because I had slept in a bad position. If you notice most people these days have bad postures. Bad postures lead to bad back aches. Your…

I love a good core workout. That being said, I am completely against 6 pack abs and bikini body trends. Only because they not justify your fitness level. You could have a pack of amazing abs, but if you are panting after 3 flights of stairs; those abs are of no good. To be honest thats just for show. Fitness is not for show. Doing 100 crunches to take that awesome bikini selfie in my opinion is just being silly. Don’t get me wrong , I take body selfies all the time. But to see my progress. I don’t intend…

Various excuses come up, some make sense and some are just inexcusable. But such is the human mind. We convince ourselves of unbelievable things. What I forgot to mention is that even though I have these morbid arguments in my head, and its half an hour of yes or no. I still pull myself  out of bed,…
