“The journey has been a roller-coaster full of ups and downs. Specially when you are diagnosed with hypothyroidism, gaining weight is something so easy that you have to control your body no matter what. It also hit me that I don’t want to be a person someone needs to take care of, since after putting so much weight it put a toll on my knee and Achilles tendons.

Like many people, I too have past traumas that creep up once in a while, but exercising keeps my mind and body in check. Especially during the lockdown, it has become one of my routines to at least set aside 1 hour to sweat off the frustrations. This is my body and I want to take care of it, I know it may be hard getting that first Burpee or push up done, but once you notice you can do it, and later on do it easily, at the end it is a personal satisfaction and challenging yourself to finish the routine.

Take the time to make it about yourself and your well-being, at the end it’s just you, your body, and mind.”
