Swetha Devaraj: Happy people are always happy, not because everything is right in their life. They are happy because their attitude towards everything is right... as long as I am around water I am a happy baby !!Happy Monday Morning
Swetha Devaraj: Elegance is not about being noticed, it's about being remembered!! On the other hand, Is the weekend here yet ?? Yessss !! Hope u all have a great Saturday!! #flashback to one of the best island times I had in the #philippines
Swetha Devaraj: Time- 5.15 am, Location- gym @ncf_cunningham, Mood - this #cheesing, Courtesy - endorphins kicked through workout aka me time !! #nuffsaid. Exercising is a great stress buster and a mood lifter and it's the way I want to start everyday ... why not when it keeps me happy and energetic through out the day right?? !! U know what I am talking about if your already working out regularly and if u don't then better start some kind of physical activity that makes you happy!!
Swetha Devaraj: We all get injured .. it's a part of the process but don't let that beat you!! Can't stop won't stop!! #goodmorning No legs?? So wat we still have upperbody to work on right?? Not saying u should ignore your injuries and workout but work on ur other weaknesses without effecting your injured part!! I had to get that chalk on my hands and do some upperbody work ..it dint make me sweat much but I know I got some quality workout in.. check out my stories today to see what I worked on!!
Swetha Devaraj: Don't ask life "why me??" Instead say "try me!!!"
Swetha Devaraj: Happiest and fittest birthday to the cutest sweetest hottest calmest bwoyy in my life!!
Swetha Devaraj: Never think you are nothing. Never think you are everything. But always think you are something who can ACHIEVE ANYTHING.
Swetha Devaraj: #noflexzone Wired into my inner channel ... that's what exercising does to me ... it helps me stay connected to myself !! "Everything is Easy, When You are Busy. But Nothing is Easy, When You are Lazy"
Swetha Devaraj: Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you will go but always remember true success is far beyond this material world !! #tb to a shoot showing a different side of me than usual..
Swetha Devaraj: How many of you think your life is well balanced? How many of you think you are extremists and constantly think of doing everything in moderation but fall of the track frequently ? I am an extremist in a lot of things but fortunately was introduced to finding mediums through which we can find our balance. It doesn't have to be one thing for everything, for example: running and working out brings a sense of balance in my eating habits and brings in discipline to my life. Travelling or getting away sometimes brings that balance into my life when I get burnt out from work, reading brings a sense of balance when my mind is occupied with negativity. Explore and find out what your medium is, to bring that balance in ur lives. It could be a nice hobby, or something that u may wana learn like a musical instrument, photography etc. That medium is what brings discipline into your life, making it balanced !!
Swetha Devaraj: In order to save yourself, you must first destroy the 'YOU' you were told to be. I DID!! Here’s how- Turn your demons into art, your shadow into a friend, your fear into fuel, your failures into teachers, your weaknesses into reasons to keep fighting, don’t waste away on your pain... recycle your heart!!
Swetha Devaraj: I have sooo many reasons to be cheesin today !!
Swetha Devaraj: Confidence is NOT "they WILL like me!".. confidence is "I WILL be fine if they don't !!!
Swetha Devaraj: How do u feel after your workouts?? Do u feel like u just died and came back, feel like throwing up or do u feel content and feel like smiling ? If it's the first two then hang in there and try to be regular to workouts... your body needs time to get used to physical activities after a break or if you are just getting into fitness, so give it sometime and keep pushing and then once you pass that stage you will begin to enjoy the process and will be looking forward to many more of these!!
Swetha Devaraj: #selfnote "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be conquered" - #dontknowwhosaidthis but #itringsinmyears .. fear, hesitation and self doubt puts anyone in an uncomfortable place, but some people can camouflage it well and overcome those tough/awkward situations simply by taking tht extra step and by pushing themselves. This can slowly build your confidence!! how many of you hesitated to do something u really wanted to last year?? Make a list of all these things , read them everyday and tell yourself "you ARE going to do it !" Leave a comment below about one thing you really want to work on this year... think of it as if you are telling someone and promising yourself !! This usually helps a lot !!
Swetha Devaraj: IT TAKES NOTHING TO JOIN THE CROWD. IT TAKES EVERYTHING TO STAND ALONE.
Swetha Devaraj: You are not the only one to fall off the wagon during holidays or go yoyoing with your weight .. I am right there with y'all!! Most of u see me eat very clean .. it's the month of Dec, I let go a lil bit and just be free, instead of eating unconsciously throughout the year! This is for two reasons though ...firstly like most people, i don't have the body type to sustain on greasy, sugary and carb loaded food on a regular basis, even though I am so active physically, age is also another factor (yep I'm much older than u think I am #waitforittilljan26th) , so eating clean food all the time is a must for me, resisting my #bigass sugar cravings, primarily due to competing in races and ofcourse to stay lean. But Dec I give into indulgence like it's no ones business.. anyway point is this try to eat clean through out the week and have one cheat meal, thts right not a CHEAT "DAY"!!! And slowly practice that throughout the year and ofcourse end of the year be merry, that the Damage control doesn't exceed your limits. And start of the year bounce back with new goals and get back on track which is exactly what I am going to be doing .. so watch me do me .. let's see how long this takes for me to get back to the previous shape
Swetha Devaraj: If you see the world with the vision of positivity and love, you will find everything so meaningful and beautiful, enjoying each and every moment, making it easier for yourself!! Try it upside down as well sometimes, Practising the tuck handstands with my belly tucked in and pressing my shoulders down..I think I'm getting decent at it but long way to go though!!
Swetha Devaraj: "A tree that wants to touch the sky must extend its roots into the earth. The more it wants to grow upwards the more it has to grow downwards. So to rise in life, we must be down to earth, humble and grateful." - some book!! Thought it's nice to share this with you all coz I love it"
Swetha Devaraj: Today is Sunday and most of us indulge ourselves in our favourite meals on this day. So let's talk about food, nutrition and some healthy choices
Swetha Devaraj: Is that what i see it is ??? 33k ? Dang... what started merely as a personal journal has become something that gives me a reason to be better everyday just so it helps others but at the same time motivating the shit out of me!! I’m very thankful for all of this and all the msgs, questions I get every single day though I try to read all, I know I haven’t been able to respond to many. I will get to all so plz bare with me .. hope my posts help you all even more in the coming years!! 33 is a great number Coz thts the number I’m gona turn into in a week
Swetha Devaraj: How long can you hold this inchworm/ hollow back plank for?? Try and tag me !! Make sure u don’t drop hips lower and brace your core plus hands extended all the way !! #letsgo The strongest factor for success is self esteem... believing you can do it, believing you deserve and believing you will get it !!
Swetha Devaraj: #iwokeuplikethis ... glossy eyes and dreamy thoughts!! They say life is the greatest lesson .. but what they don’t say is that it is also the most difficult exam.. most people fail because they try to copy others not realising the fact that everyone has a different question paper !!!
Swetha Devaraj: Read this somewhere - “the heart is the only thing that works without any rest, keep it happy whether it’s yours or others’” - some book.... now my thoughts:- A happy heart and a mind can do wonders ... every now and then think of something / anything that can recreate that feeling of happiness and see how your mood is going to be amped up with positivity .. practice this
Swetha Devaraj: Health is not just about eating and working out .. it’s also about what you think and say !! Whether success gives happiness or not, a happy healthy mind can lead you to success!! Work on that happiness !!
Swetha Devaraj: For many of us, being fit means maintaining a healthy weight with diet and exercise and it’s defly not wrong to just want to fit into your favorite jeans or rock those 6 pack abs. But fitness for me goes beyond all this. When I lift i wana learn all forms of lifting and lift heavy...if I run I want to be able to run the longest and fastest ‘I’can, If I jump I wana b able to jump as high and which ever direction I want to, if i dive I want to be the best I can be.. someone once told me my body is not made for long distance running .. I hve been running long distance ever since then .. fitness to me is beating all the odds and facing whatever challenges that’s gona be thrown at me .. if I can’t, then I am going to work towards it and get it done!! Fitness to me is being so strong mentally that you become fearless ... Fitness is to me is being an example and showing people if I can do it, so can anyone .... Thing is don’t let what others say get to you, instead get into their heads by showing what you can do and lead the way!! being fit in every way possible ... What’s your definition of fitness?
Swetha Devaraj: There is a big mirror in my room right in front of my bed ... it’s not just for decorative purpose but it reminds and teaches me a lot of things every single day and night. There are times I look in that mirror and I dislike what I’m seeing, sometimes I look right at it and feel on top of the world. A few times It has reminded me of where I hve come from and which direction I need to go in. Day in and day out it tells me I’m my own competition... But every single night before I hit the bed, it tells me I need to be grateful for who I am, where I am and for all the people/things I have and will receive !!! I hope all of u had a great Sunday and I hope all of you go to bed being grateful for the life you have
Swetha Devaraj: Just because you are not making progress as fast as you think you should, does not mean you are not progressing at all... and remember when you open your mind to several different things, it’s always going to be a work in progress !! On the other hand, my back bends have gotten better on shoulder stands and more stable compared to a year ago .. that’s a progress. I will take it, doesn’t matter how slow it was !! Check out my stories for the back bend and shoulder stand video drills soon.. have a great #friday people
Swetha Devaraj: Our life is a creation of our mind. Expect nothing & accept everything. Don't believe in 'Tit for Tat' rule. Learn to "LET GO.." because we can't even have the next breath until we let go of the existing one.
Swetha Devaraj: Sometimes a bad day can turn into a good one with even a bad run !!! My solution to everything in life “ go workout” Such is the power of being physically active and sweating it out and it’s scientifically proven .. exercising makes our brain release neuro transmitters that are responsible for happiness called dopamine, endorphins and seratonin— they are the happiness hormones ... u cannot reject it even if u want to after working out ... so get some of those happy hormones tday and everyday for good, great, healthy life!!
