5 Days in Philly

It was a fabulous vacation, a wonderful break from my (not so) monotonous life. The little Missy enjoyed it too. I must say, she was a breeze! She loves being outdoors and I loved traveling with her.
Just like I promised there would be pictures from our trip, so here we go! As I said in my previous post that we did not carry our camera. Hence, iPhone came to the rescue! I tried capturing as many memories I could (and as much my phone memory allowed).

P.S. Philadelphia, you were beautiful. Though I’m not done with you! I’ll be coming back soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰














Sun and bare legs

We finally completed our ‘settling down‘ process this weekend. All the furniture is bought and set up, boxes opened, kitchen stocked, accessories hanged etc. etc. Now that all this is over, I can finally relax and take a chill pill. So let’s move on..
As you can see in these pictures, my focus for the past few months has been fitness (you would know more if you follow me on Instagram, which let me say you must ๐Ÿ˜‰ )! I might have lost some weight (I’m not sure because I haven’t weighed myself in over a year; I go by the mirror and how my clothes fit), but I feel so much stronger than before. I can lift, I can squat, I can bend, I can do much, much more than before.
Just for the record, this blog has and always will, focus on two major things – Fashion and Fitness. My heart lies in both of them, and I could never choose just one!

On the outfit front, who would have thought a plain-jane kind of linen shirt dress would look this glamorous! This dress was lying in the ‘Sales’ isle of Old Navy back in Boston last month (since Boston was covered in snow, no one would dare wearing linen then). That is when I bought it, because I knew I was moving to a warmer place, and could wear it sooner than later. And here we are, linen dress,ย with shining sun, some sweat, and lots of bare legs. No complaints, my Lord!

Boston is a beautiful city, incredibly beautiful! I moved to this city 7 months ago and I still haven’t got over the fact that my city is so picturesque, to say the least! You must visit at least once in your life!

I have already transitioned my wardrobe to fit for the Fall weather! Printed leggings are not only comfortable, they make you look chic, and add an extra punch to the outfit! Throw in a scarf and you are all set! I wore my Vans with this outfit because it was a city surfing day and I wanted to be able to run in town freely!

No Music

Would you consider me a weird person if I confess that I don’t like to listen to music while working out? Pretty weird huh..!! Well.. I thought so! The thing is.. music distracts me (not in general.. just while exercising). It may sound stupid but yes, when I am working out, I like to concentrate on my form, my speed, my breathing and if I have music on, well I concentrate mostly on the beats, or the singer or what to play next.. or to skip the current song and jump to my favorite one… ahh…! It wastes my time. Plus I don’t like how the earplugs cables hang and hinder the movements (even the wireless headset is not comfortable to me). It’s frustrating. So I don’t listen to music while working out and I am usually done with my workout within 40 minutes! And that is a high intensity interval training that I am talking about! It consists of no official breaks (you take a break when you feel the need) but the clock keeps ticking!

How do you like to workout – Music or No Music?
