Since moving to Mumbai, I don’t think I’ve missed London as much as I did yesterday.  I have no doubt that if I were there, I would have learned every nitty gritty detail about the epic Royal Wedding…more so than I already managed! How can you not be excited: it’s the ultimate fairytale happy ending- […]


Yearning for testosterone

by Khushboo on April 28, 2011

For the most part, I enjoy being a female…really.  But sometimes I wonder whether life would be easier as the other sex.  Let me count the ways: We would save endless amounts of stress by not having to search for the ‘perfect’ dress. No need to undergo various painful & expensive hair removal treatments Getting […]

Funny story: for a while during my weight loss, I limited myself to only a couple of bananas per week.  One week on Weight Watchers, I gained weight despite sticking to the plan down to a T and my ‘genius’ of a leader suggested it was due to eating too many bananas (seriously??😯 ).  Clearly […]


Mango madness

by Khushboo on April 25, 2011

Fasting: act of willingly abstaining from some or all food, drink, or both for a period of time.  Some people do it for religious purposes, some for weight loss (ridic *cough* ulous), and others for health/medical reasons. David Blaine did it as a feat of endurance: 44 days in a glass box over the Tower […]


Rock-bottom motivation

by Khushboo on April 22, 2011

Despite having to wake up at 6.30 am, I find it 10 times easier to exercise on a weekday than on a weekend.  If it doesn’t happen right away, I can find it really hard to get motivated.  The longer I put off the a workout, the more likely it won’t happen…which explains why I […]


Sprucing up my blog

by Khushboo on April 21, 2011

What can I say: I’m a sucker for organization!  Although my closet may contradict this, I hate things being out of place and I cannot function in a messy space.  For that reason alone, I’ve been meaning to tidy up my blog for ages.  For starters I’ve added a Favorite Posts page, where I’ve categorized my […]

Breakfast of chia-mpions

by Khushboo on April 20, 2011

Last week, I blogged about my latest find: chia seeds!  Given the size of those little buggers, they really pack quite a punch.  Someone summed it up best: In terms of nutritional content, a tablespoon of chia seeds is like a smoothie made of salmon, spinach, and a human growth hormone.  Chia seeds aren’t superfoods; they […]


It’s all Greek to me!

by Khushboo on April 19, 2011

Two people who I sympathize with dearly are my best friend and sister. One is allergic to nuts and the other is lactose-intolerant. Where food is concerned, those are both nightmare situations for me. More than being deprived of peanut butter, I can’t imagine not snacking on chocolate bars  which contain nuts or sprinkling a […]


Get over it

by Khushboo on April 17, 2011

Over time, I’ve noticed that there are a few words/phrases which I repeatedly use.  If you too have noticed it, I apologise for coming off as a parrot.  However I can’t guarantee I am going to stop anytime soon: “Lol” (laugh out loud) on Blackberry – it’s kind of my fake laugh or used when […]
