I am a working woman and a work in progress type of wife & mom. I love to cook, dance, write, sing, paint but most of all I like to sleep, which is nearly impossible when you decide to add a baby to the equation. I also love cleaning and have slight OCD tendencies and my husband firmly believes that we have spent a tiny fortune already on cleaning supplies namely; Colin, Mr Muscle & dusters. And I also love to write which does not happen as often as I wish really, mostly because I am lazy. But yeah I do write about stuff and this is where I intend to pen it down.

My Food Blog : From My Kitchen

I find life to be interesting and quite funny mostly and do like to look at things from my angle, Everyday is full of funny and lively experiences, Also, I love to cook and would be writing down my successful recipes / experiments here ( only the successful ones)

I absolutely love cooking, rather experimenting I would say, and it does not hurt that I kinda have a flair for cooking (not very modest, Am I?) and the biggest reason I enjoy it is because my family always supports me and encourages me. Truth is If you are surrounded by people who have no interest in even letting you imagine and letting you experiment then you may not enjoy cooking so much.

They may not actually cook but at least if your family loves to explore the various aisles in the department store, looking up all the products and ingredients of gourmet cooking stacked therein, then that is reason enough for you to enjoy this delightful art, in which there are no set boundaries.

My Keto Journey

I have always strived to remain healthy and fit. Having been working out since a I left college, I found it easy to eat healthy and keep fit; up until I got pregnant. I had a normal and very easy preganancy, followed by a normal delivery. I ate healthy and did pre natal workouts. I was in office till the night before my son was born. i.e. I worked till the last day of popping baby and went back to work 3 months post partum. I breastfed too, and started working out again soon enough. BUT, this time the weight wont come off at all. For 2 years i tried everything, workin out with professional trainers, eating healthy, eating low carb, Zumba 3 days a week, 5 days of cardio and weight training, but nothing helped. I barely lost 5 Kgs of the 25 i had gained! I was depressed and tired. Then my sister suggested Keto to me, she knew how hard i had been trying. And i am glad i tried this; i have lost 12 kgs in the last 4 months and I am fitter and healthier. I have tons of energy and no energy carshes or slumps, Neither do i have any cravings. I also practice Intermittent Fasting now and eat only in a 8 hour window and guess what i never feel hungry.

I want to share my learning on this journey with people and you can follow my daily journey on my Instagram page (shared above) and my Me Keto Blogs & Recipes here

Mommy Diaries : My Parenting Journey

Check my parenting Journey at : Parenting Blogs

Mom to an adorable bundle of joy, i find parenting quite challenging, and not as easy as many people make it sound. But easy or not; life as a parent sure is funny. Well you have to think it is funny and all things related to it are super humorous else there is a chance, you may end up mad ? Go here, If you want to read my fails & Mommy Confessions of an average parent

About having a baby, I am pissed off with everyone always having given me a wrong picture about the whole thing; They all had ulterior motives. Parenting is tough, life – altering and the only good thing about the whole process is the by-product; the baby. Yes, cliché alert ; after all is said and done, the Baby is worth going all through it. I try to see the parenting debacles with a funny eye, it makes life easier.
