  • 2021 Workouts

    I exercised 142 times in 2021. When I took a count in July, I anticipated missing about 10 workouts through the remainder of the year, but I actually missed just one. At 3x per week, I was lucky enough to work out about 47 of 52 weeks. That makes 2021 yet another good year in […]


  • Worldwide WP 5K 2016

    Today I ran the WWWP5K with fellow Automatticians at this year’s Grand Meetup in Whistler, Canada. This happens to be the 30th 5K since my first 5K as part of the last year’s WWWP5K. Full map of the run: I am happy that I got to run my with my lovely coworkers and that my run […]


  • January workouts

    Here is the summary of my workouts in January 2016. 11 high intensity workouts. 5 five kilometer plus runs, once every Sunday.


  • Worldwide WP 5K 2015

    I completed WWWP5k this afternoon. This is my first 5k run. I’m pleased that it is part of worldwide WordPress community event. I ran in the Unitec university campus near my home. I hoped run in the nearby park but the day got hectic and I ended up running in my beautiful neighborhood. I am […]


  • Three milestones and two goals

    It is raining milestones this week.      I hit 100 day streak in meditation. I started meditating this January but failed rather quickly. I say with experience that trying to start meditation with twenty-minute sessions is a sure shot way to stumble. So I started again in May with Calm app. I started with […]


  • Exercise Milestone

    I finished exercising this afternoon and checked in to Coach.me to find this interesting milestone. It is indeed 211th check-in as I only started counting after the first eleven.  110 of those were in 2014. The rest 101 are in this year. This cheered up my otherwise regretful afternoon. I ate well up until lunch […]


  • Elevate milestone

    I reached 401 day long streak on Elevate today. I was at 101 last time when I wrote about  this cool educational app. Elevate combines two of my passions: deliberate practice and building tiny habits. This is what makes me reach out to Elevate as soon as I wake up every morning. It hurts to […]


  • Some inspiration for exercising

    One of my awesome exercise mates shared this motivational video. It is not that people who don’t exercise lack motivation or don’t know the facts mentioned in this video. And I don’t think anyone instantly starts working out solely looking at this video. Great watch, nevertheless. I loved it.


  • Leveled up in Pushps

    I just completed the Level 2 Pushp Challenge and signed up for Level 3. Level 3 helps me do 30 pushups in four weeks. I reached to 30 pushups in the last few days but today, on the last day of Level 2, I had to land on my knees at 28. But the numbers […]


  • 150 workouts

    This evening I exercised for 150th time since I told myself that I will not lose out and workout. This habit is also an example of how I hoped to deal with my new year resolutions: Identity – I saw myself as the type of person who never misses the workout. So I only cared […]
