Lately I have had to try
wayyyy much 'harder' to get my a$$ to the gym. It could be the lack of motivation, or working hours coming in the way, or may be God is being her usual 'difficult' self! So I have decided to make a LONG list of reasons why I like to workout to motivate myself. 
Time to get back in the Game!
1. I like how I feel when I exit from the Gym
2. My skin looks a lot better when I workout regularly
3. I like how my clothes fit me when I am in good shape
4. I truly cherish my current tiny waist [which was once as big as whole of ASIA!]
5. I do not like paying medical bills [which accumulate due to poor health]
6. I enjoy the confidence fitness gives me
7. I feel more at peace and in sync with myself when I workout
Anyone wants to add anything to my list? 

P.S. For the record, that was Husband's meal (above) and not mine!


  1. totally love this post...
    am conducting a project called cinch waist on my blog so i can lose weight in 2 months...and though i feel good when i exercise i feel better when i eat...:)
    so am working on that
    take care

  2. 8. I'm hot. Not just temp wise. Mind, body and soul wise.
    9. I have the sexiest shoulders in the blogosphere
    10. I'm Fabulous. Fullstop.

    ...I LOVE this photo!!!!!!! Even when you're doing a warrior snarly face you look damn sexy!!

    [I know a lot about warrior snarly faces, I have many of me in combat, I just look constipated!!!!]

  3. Another point:
    -I can eat whatever I want when I work out regularly. :) (Incase you are a foodie like me which I think you are!)

  4. I love Quesadilla's. They're delicious.
    Another reason to work out is that it can also be fun...

  5. I've been having a difficult time trying to motivate myself too! By some miracle I seem to have lost weight in London (not that the scales tell me so, but I feel different and my clothes are fitting better) and I reallyreallyreally don't want to put it all back on now that I'm back home. So I'm going to have to try harder to motivate myself as well! Good luck Tanvi!


  6. I like to workout because I don't feel so GUILTY when I indulge in all things Sugar

    I like to workout because it's the only form of Pain which is a Gain (by you not gaining)

    I like to workout because when I do end up losing that weight, people load me with compliments which makes my heart grin

    Haha..coming from someone who doesn't workout, how did I do?

  7. I make a similiar veggie version using Quorn instead of chicken, yum! Do you get Quorn in the States?
    Mmmmm.....thinking about your 8,9 and 10. I think you've covered all the bases admirably there. xxx

  8. I guess I'm just happy when I excersise, and thus far more patient with others too!

  9. Thoroughly enjoyed the post.

    10. I end up meeting new people and new friendships are formed. (Yes, I am talking about you swimming lady, You are the best. You have the greatest tips to give me about how I am not supposed to drink the pool water and the fact that you like my pretty colored swimsuit)
