Well, Life to me has been overall an amazing and a learning experience till date. I have faced many ups and downs. I have cherished and celebrated the moments of happiness and the moments where I failed I was dishearten but at the same time I did overcome the same by learning, learning from my mistakes, learning what did go right and finding a solution to the problem. I continue to do so by living in the moment, taking each day in its stride as it comes with a positive spirit.

Prioritize is the key I must say.You cannot have it all, all at once! It is important to balance and manage time by making choices and enjoying those choices.

In 2014, Due to my ill health conditions and I felt it is the time and turning point in my life to now get healthier, stronger, and feel better about myself.

I do stretching before and after every run, Core workouts, High-intensity training twice a week. My workout schedules also comprise of hill running, Tempo runs, Interval training and Long distance running all of it depends on my schedule set for the week and it varies.

Breakfast is usually a bowl of cereal with milk, oatmeal, or two eggs, plus a cup of coffee or tea. Lunch is while I'm working mostly so I ensure I get my home made food that usually includes Chapattis, cereals and vegetables and curd. For dinner I usually eat the same thing as for lunch and on weekends would prefer to have non-veg (Chicken only).
