The Clean Cheat and Sweaty Rants

fitness blog

The hottest news- Bey is having twins *dayum* and I’m kickstarting a health section called “The Clean Cheat” on the blog!

Food is my trusty sidekick and weight is it’s sneaky evil twin who triggers all kinds of nasty trial-room  nightmares. I’ve never ever been a skinny bitch but I’ve seen better swimsuit days and also some horrible muffin top days. Right now, I’m on middle ground (the tragic plateau phase). However, when age is your ultimate battle and the scale tends to weigh you down, your mind tells you that an extra spoonful of sugar won’t keep the doc away. That’s when life kicks you in the butt and tells you to put on those gym shoes and move towards a healthier life one squat at a time.

There’s a whole lot of mumbo-jumbo out there, from “how to lose 10 kilos in a month” to “800 calories -a-day diets”, which I’m going to call bullshit on. Why am I entitled to disagree? Well, almost a year back, I was a serial-patient, always in and out of the clinic, with a cold, migraines, poop issues and so on- the result of bad work timings, excessive partying, no ghar ka khanna and a surrendered soul. It came to a point where I knew I was making ALL the wrong decisions and popping way too many pills. I also happen to be a statistic- 1 in 10 Indians suffer from thyroid disorders *downer*. That’s when I decided to make the first move.

I don’t remember the exact time and place when I decided to take up a gym membership and hire a personal trainer (Sandeep), but one year down the line, I can tell you that I’ve never run faster and spending an hour a day sweating it out is the second best commitment I made in my life (first goes to P).

My goal here is not to dictate by the kilos but instead explore a healthier lifestyle and make conscious decisions, and share them with you. From my struggles to achievements to sweaty rants. Did I lose all the weight I wanted to and achieve my fitness goals? Nope, not yet. But I’m determined to crush all these goals this year. And I think by putting myself out here, I’ll find more motivation and hopefully company to sticking to this quotidian goal. I’ll be writing about workouts, healthier food options, inspirations, failures and a whole lot more. Basically, I’m hanging out my dirty gym socks.

Also, there’s one word you won’t find on this blog, and that’s “fat”. So be kind and less judgemental. Instead, let’s take a zumba class together.


  1. Girl…I LOVE me some Zumba! I started healthy eating a couple of years ago and haven’t looked back since. Health is a great thing to commit to (and I’m sure your body as well as the readers who grace these pages will be thanking you for). Thanks for sharing!!

  2. LOVE this post! I cannot wait to follow along with your Clean Cheat series! I’m definitely recommitting myself to eating healthier & hitting the gym this year. I have some goals I want to slay 😉 I’m confident you’ll achieve your goals this year too!

    BTW, loving your photo! The colors really pop!

  3. I totally agree with what you saying. I think healthy lifestyle has huge impact on how we feel and it’s much better to start moving and change your eating habits than drug yourself! Unfortunetly a lot of people choose the mountains of pills just cause it’s much easier.

  4. Even I think that the “lose 10 kgs in 10 days” is all bullshit talk. I have started working out regularly and I eat whatever I feel like. Of course, that is in the right quantities! All the best for your goals!

  5. I used to go to gym and basically I ran a lot, but somehow stopped. Then my friends made go once to Zumba class and it’s been almost a year now! I love it so much! I didn’t lose any weight, but I didn’t gain either. I eat perhaps more, but I think look better. SO cheers to this idea! Would love to hear your daily challenges and goals.
    BS, xx |

  6. YOU GO GIRL. I feel so proud of you for doing all this despite your thyroid disease! I have Crohn’s disease and I have zeroooo motivation! But I feel you on the Zumba. that is my FAVE.
