First things first, let’s go over the foundation of what my page is going to be about when it comes to fitness. I’m not fit. I’m trying to get there. I struggle with all the regular Joe problems. You name it. Binge eating, junk eating, sleeping late, quitting gym after a while and feeling too […]

I was out with Payal on the drive that I do (usually alone), the airport expressway, the Outer Ring Road, then home via Gatchibowli, Hitech City, Jubilee Hills, etc. We were on the airport elevated expressway, viz. the P.V.
