Helloooo and Welcome Gais to my very own Website and Blog! *smiles*
I know right? A sentence I never thought I'd type in this lifetime. Yes, this new decade got me doing all kinds of things even starting a blog. lol!
Personally, when I was growing up I was never that avid a reader/bookworm like everyone else in my family. I was attracted to everything visual but not words. I still remember my mum used to tell me to keep a history book beside my bedside table on the nights if I had trouble sleeping... a paragraph in and I was out cold. haha!
Anyhoo, the point of that story was to say.. over the many years I have felt like I always was weak in languages- that lack of confidence that would cripple me from even replying an email (for example), needing people to assist me in writing replies, checking my grammar and spelling or looking up examples online was pretty much how I rolled for the longest time. However, I remember I told myself that with each help I will work on getting better and better and here I AM TODAY GAIS!! (decades later with more confidence with my written English than before) Starting a blog and all. Phewiit! lol Allow me to blow my own trumpet for a second here... I am very proud of myself for how far I've come. With every challenge, I am super happy I never gave up, I always tried my best to look at the bright side of things and put my head down and worked on staying consistent in areas that needed improvement and staying focused on working through it. #GayasGrateful
Okay now back to business...
SO WHY START A BLOG GAYA??
I know what it feels like to not be the best version of yourself and I learnt it the hard way. From being fat, insecure, not knowing how to love myself, always trying to fit in and not appreciating the differences I bring to the table, unhealthy physically and mentally - life gave me various lessons and some really hard ones for me to wake up and see ME for who I am, what the situation is and grow from it. (I am grateful for my experiences don't get me wrong) They say a diamond isn't made overnight, it goes through lots of hard knocks first.. So ya in hindsight it all makes sense. Thank you for the lessons.
I know the journey to #GetFit (mind, body and soul) in general is one of struggles and after sharing daily on my Instagram for over a year now and growing this community, I felt it was time to take it up a notch on this journey of #GayaGetsFit and #GetFitWithGaya through a blog, one on one coaching, group classes and more which would allow me to reach a wider audience and for you #fitfam to come back to all the info I've shared over the last year in a more structured format. Now all the contents that I've promised you will be uploaded here... and I get to practice my writing skills. WIN-WIN situation don't you think? Who knows many years from now... I could be an author? haha!
If you've been following me on my Instagram and Facebook pages you'll know I started this journey #GayaGetsFit 4 years ago and only took it to social media a year ago where I kept it AS REAL AS POSSIBLE on what it's like to #GetFit (mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually). I have come to realise it has become my passion to help change the view, perception and relationship one has with the word FIT. More often than not, when someone says the word FIT you associate it with an image of a physically fit person. While that is true, I do believe being FIT in other areas of our lives is as important if not crucial for one's overall wellbeing.
So this blog is going to be about everything related TO HOW TO GETFIT AND BE IN THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE (mind, body & soul)
So look forward to #GetFitWithGaya weekly as I share information, tips and experiences in
from a South Indian gal's perspective!
