The ultimate BOGOF

by Khushboo on July 30, 2012

BOGOFs: one of life’s “cheap” thrills.  For those of you who don’t frequent supermarkets, BOGOF is an acronym for “Buy One, Get One Free”.  The other day, I scored the ultimate BOGOF at my gym just as my first lot of personal training sessions was about to expire…or actually an BTSGTF: “Buy 36 Sessions, get 12 […]


Weekend Reads

by Khushboo on July 27, 2012

Tell me I am not the only one who did a double take at their calendar today! How is it already the last Friday of July?! I seem to be saying it at the end of every month so I may as well say it once more: This year is flying! Rather than put up […]


Can we talk about hash tags for a second?  Over the last few years, Twitter has revolutionized the use of the number sign #.  For those who aren’t on Twitter, the concept of hashtags probably doesn’t make sense…at least it took my cousin AGES to somewhat wrap her head around it. In a nutshell, a […]


D is for Deficiency

by Khushboo on July 23, 2012

A few weeks I mentioned that I was retaining water like a sponge and overall feeling really uncomfortable.  After undergoing a whole host of tests and seeing a doctor about it, it turns out I am deficient in Vitamin D, which may be one of the contributing factors.  We’re always told to take our vitamins […]

I know I can’t be the only one in a good mood today- its FriYAY!  Seeing as it’s the end of the week, I’m going to back out of writing a coherent post and instead freestyle with whatever is on my mind: I’ve repeated the same dinner almost every night this past week: Stir fry […]


Hola!  I opened up my blog earlier and saw that this is my 403rd post.  I remember when my friend suggested I start a blog about my passion for fitness & nutrition, I told her I would have nothing to write about.  Apparently somebody’s chattier than she thinks ;)! In between sets yesterday, my personal […]


Chicken Avocado Tartine

by Khushboo on July 16, 2012

Pet peeves: we all have them, I know I could list plenty.  For starters, let’s talk about cling film.  I know it’s great for preserving food but trying to actually remove it from the box it can be so frustrating.  Apparently using it is an art because almost every time I contend with it, it […]


AM to PM Workouts

by Khushboo on July 13, 2012

This is how I spent my morning on Wednesday: I’m not doctor but I had a feeling that working out right after a blood test was probably not a wise idea.  Although evening workouts aren’t my favorite, it was my only alternative…and I actually really enjoyed my session on Wednesday.  Sure getting my sweat on […]


I can’t believe that it’s already been 8 years since I decided to “change my ways”…actually 8 years and 24 days, but who’s counting ;)!  In other words, I joined my first Weight Watchers meeting on June 17th, 2004 and haven’t looked back since.  Even though I started losing weight almost instantly, plenty has changed […]
