Hiking...Our new found hobby (and in the process trying to burn some calories)

Ever since i moved to US from India and ever since i quit my job to be with my better half, life has being good and very LAZZYYYY. Yes the laziness in me kicks in every now and then. Unfortunately this laziness has resulted in too much of weight gain (every women's nightmare these days) since last year. I was never a workout freak nor was i totally unhealthy or overweight during my college or work days. But post marriage i have been struggling to maintain a healthy weight range. Being a foodie, me and hubby always love to try new cuisines, experiment different types of recipes at home and grab every opportunity to eat yummy food during our little travel adventures. All this has led to a chubby me.

And so since the past few weeks i have been planning and scheduling a new routine for myself. Maybe i will discuss more about my new routine in another post. Soooo.. coming to the actual topic of the post, HIKING. Yes lately hiking is the one thing that we are enjoying a lot during weekends. Hiking not only provides you with a great workout but it also lets you enjoy nature like never before. I love being surrounded by green lush trees at any given time of the day and same is the case with my husband. It is welcome change from the typical or sometimes boring routine of going to the gym and working out. So far i have managed to loose few pounds but i have still a long way to go. Better late than never, right???

If you are a nature lover, then go grab your hiking shoes and head out.

Here are some of the pics from our recent hiking trips. All pictures are owned by me and clicked from my LG G3 phone.

Why i was missing in action (again)? :P

I am at it again....argghhhh.....was MIA (missing in action) for a really long time....Sighhhh..... My last post was Appam and Stew (Traditional Keralite breakfast recipe) posted almost a month back. Well its definitely not like the last time (when i was being lazy :P), i have a very good reason for not being around. Past few weeks was super adventurous. Me and hubby were busy planning our next big vacation and hiking on weekends when free. 

Yes we are back from our very first international vacation to Peru (South America). I am so looking forward to share all the photos, experiences, peruvian food and everything that the beautiful country of Peru has to offer. The trip was a super success and i am still reeling over the fact that i got to see one of the most breathtaking wonder of the world "Machu Picchu". 

Stay tuned for an overdose of Macchu Picchu pics and my travel stories about Peru. 

Signing off and promising myself to blog more :D. Do checkout my Instagram account as well where i have been uploading pics from my recent trip.
