  • Price of things

    Price of things

    Money is often a negative art. What you don’t do can be more important than what you actively do. Everything has a price, and prices aren’t always clear. The price of exercise isn’t just the workout; it’s avoiding the post-workout urge to eat a ton of food. Same in finance. The price of building wealth isn’t just […]


  • 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 […]


  • Mid-year update on my 2021 workouts

    I exercised 25 of the 28 weeks so far this year. Overall, I skipped ten workouts and exerted myself 70 times at three workouts per week. I am happy with the volume of my physical effort so far. I am looking forward to keeping this pace through the rest of the year. I will likely […]


  • 2019 Workouts

    Exercising is one of the foundational habits that I wanted to incorporate in my life. In 2014 I found a colleague who is passionate about personal training.

  • Old habits. Not new resolutions.

    Just a thought that popped up while working out the upper body in the last hour. But first some context. Last week and this week, I am finding it very hard to exercise. It is after all holiday season, and I have had excellent exercise compliance so far this year. So why not take a […]


  • The important thing we forget in the rush to achieve

    I should remember the following gems in the article I found in the following tweet. But if I could offer one piece of advice to incoming freshman, it would be to learn to take care of themselves—because they are about to be surrounded by people who often have the misconception that racking up achievements and […]


  • First four months of 2016

    Since the start of this year, I exercised 50 hours and ran 15 5ks. Most importantly, I achieved one of the two resolutions for this year. I successfully completed Chaitanya 3.0 project. More details later. I am not doing very well on the second resolution: getting the perfect abs. I am failing to eat exceptionally […]

  • There are no finish lines

    I chanced upon a great quote today. There are no finish lines. It made prefect sense. This is something I keep in my mind with everything I do. My relationships, friendships, habits, and principles are all for my life. There are no finish lines. In the other news, I tried to keep quiet in Twitter and […]


  • 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.
