How did you get started and Where does your motivation come from?

I have enjoyed going physical activities like yoga and dancing on and off. However, this took a back seat after I started working and hardly had any free time. I really wanted to do something but wasn’t really moving.During this time, we had hired a new domestic helper. We learnt that she was a karate trainer and marathoner but was financially weak, a single mother and did small jobs like these to support her family and her passion.”That’s when i decided to leave the excuses behind. I started running with her initially and there’s no looking back. I’m now a Nike Pacer, we lead a pack of runners (We have Runners that are regularly running, occasional runners or even new runners) and help them get their posture, running gait, etc right. Dedicate 2 days off my week for this & continue my workout along with that.

How do you feel your flexibility helps you both in and out of the gym?

I’m just more efficient in all the things I do. I love to travel and I go run in every new city I step in. Long working days or tiresome treks & travel, are not as painful as it used to be. Over all, starting my day with a workout just makes me feel more energized and alive.

If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?

Besides running, I would pick up push ups for upper body strength, planks + variations for the core & squats & their variations for butt and legs.

What is your diet like?

I try to follow a very clean diet – strictly home cooked food. Whatever I eat would be in it’s authentic form & no processed food strictly. Cheat meal once a week. I have increased the amount of natural protein in my diet for refueling post workout (soya bean, flak seeds, juices, sprouts, etc)

What’s the one food you couldn’t live without, and how do you handle food cravings?

I love the Indian roadside delicacies like Pani-puri, chaats and cheesy sandwiches. I set small goals and reward myself with the food I crave for once in a while.13391620_10206837128553081_6899923866749816042_o

What’s something not many people know about you?

I was one lazy girl a while back who’d not leave the couch or comfort travelling. I was thin & weak, not fit. It was a few events like my dad’s heart surgery, meeting Seema (the domestic helper) and inspired by my boyfriend, I started taking my health seriously!

I started with Yoga and cycling which was fun and didn’t feel like a forced workout. Post that I discovered my love for running & now enjoy different exercises with it. There are days I miss my workout and eat crap, we all have these days. But I feel it’s okay as long as we step up and get back. Make up for it by getting up everytime we fall.
