You can be as fit as you want to be! 

It's your brain that is keeping you from being 

in the best shape of your life and NOT your body.

- Christina Buzby 

This is for everyone who asks me to write about fitness. I think this topic is never going to leave my life. It is almost like I am married to it now. And it is not a good marriage 'coz I am putting in all the sweat and effort, literally! Jokes aside, it take a lot of discipline and determination for me even today, after 5 years to stay fit and make healthy choices. While at the grocery store, it seems to me like every single cake and all the chocolates and ice creams are shouting out to me. It takes every ounce of will power within me to turn away from them. BUT I do not win this battle every day. There are times when I end up eating more than the 'appropriate' portion or sleep really late or skip breakfast or worse - I do it ALL ... and regret it later. Slipping away once from the goals is a mistake, slipping twice is human, but the third time is pure SUICIDE! The ONLY solution I have for my problem is to workout

When I am at the gym, I mean business. I do not socialize, I do not watch television. I do not stroll on the treadmill flipping through magazines. I go in, do my workout and get home as soon as possible. I run a tight shift here, and on working days I do not have a second to spare! 

P.S. On the days I am lacking motivation I watch this or this and bounce right back to reality!

  13. I understand the struggle but good health is worth fighting for, especially as we get older.

    In youth, being fit helps us look better; later on, it helps us stay healthy and live longer.

  20. What motivation! Ugh and I just finished eating my way through an international luncheon at work. I better hit the gym soon!

    Have a great weekend, honey. Oh and love the outfit! Fab vest :)

  21. Gosh that necklace is so pretty. I love how it picks up the pink from the boots and makes the whole outfit come together. I can't wear big necklaces without being a little uncomfortable, need to work on that!

    As for working out, I realized one thing - you never feel bad/gross or like you wasted time if you work out, but if you don't you pretty much feel all those things! It's an easy choice :P

  28. I really wish I had your will power and motivation. It makes you such a stong person. I'm really considering starting doing joging when I get back to London and to start swimming when I'm here. I'm sooooooooo lazy though.

  31. After our talk, I realize I need to get dedicated about setting up a workout schedule..but until then, your 'quality of food' versus 'quantity of food' emphasis has made me drinking carrot and corriander soup, gulping green tea and eating boiled chicken sandwich! Like the vest and hairdo.
