Nice place for dinner. I personally liked the ambience, the lighting, the food, and the service. The moment we arrived at the restaurant, I indicated to the staffs that we have only 20 minutes and that I must finish dining and leave as I had another commitment. The staffs were very friendly, and they did a fantastic job by maintaining the pace of service. I had a wonderful experience. I would recommend anyone to visit Headquarters. . #foodie #PritishSocial #fLog #instamoment #hyderabaddiaries #hyderabad #dinner #eatery #photooftheday
At Goshala inside Mattapally Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple. You must visit this beautiful temple. Ten years back, there were nearly 10 cows. Now, there are more than 103 cows, most of them donated by devotees. . . #travelvideo #video #instavideo #india #temple #cows #beautiful #cattle #PritishSocial #travelblogger #vlog #TLog #instastory #instamoment #cute #videoblog

#BMW fans and motorbike enthusiasts would love to see this. It’s completely functional and the owner of a camera shop in Secunderabad has kept this for display so customers can see it and strike a conversation with him. I too struck a conversation with him. One story lead to another. We then conversed about camera, photography, travelling, work, marketing, et cetera. . #india #bmwbike #vintagebike #classicbike #oldbike #blackbike #motorbike #motorcycle #twowheeler #bikesofinstagram #instabike #photooftheday #instastory #storyoftheday #storytelling #bmwmotorcycle #german #hyderabad #hyderabaddiaries #PritishSocial
Veshti (Dhoti) is very comfortable and light. As summer is approaching, it is the most recommended outfit for men. Oh I love wearing Silk Veshtis. Location: Ranganatha Temple, Thiruneermalai. While the Sthalathipadi (presiding deity) is Neervana Perumal, all celebrations are for Lord Ranganatha. This temple is one among the 108 Divyadesas of Perumal. Lord appears in four forms representing three incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Lord Narasimha blesses here as Lord Bala Narasimha. #PritishSocial #travelphotography #veshti #tambrahm #iyengar #chennai #temple #travelblogger #travelling #traveller #india #hindu #hinduism #108divyadesams #placestovisit #chennaidiaries #blogger

How to Do Swiss-Ball Wall Dumbbells Squats

Hold a Swiss-ball behind you and stand with dumbbells on both hands so that the ball is pinned between your back and the wall.

  1. Place your feet about 2 feet in front of your body.
  2. Keeping your back in contact with the ball, lower your body until your upper thighs are at least parallel to the floor. Lift your arms straight out in front of your chest gently in an up and down motion.


  • Don’t round your lower back.
  • Keep your dumbbells close to the body.
  • Do 12-15 Reps (3 sets).
  • Start with a 5 Kgs dumbbells and gradually increase the weight once you are comfortable.


  1. Can help improve your core strength, balance and flexibility.
  2. Toning your midsection.

Eating Healthy Food

When you are on an exercise regime, it is good to eat healthy. For 16 weeks, I ate a lot of fruits for my breakfasts, drank plenty of water, avoided eating out, cooked my own meals and cut down on sugar. I started drinking black coffee and even acquiring an interest for it.

Daily Breakfast by PritishSocial | Healthy Food

I started including Epigamia Greek Yoghurt for breakfast as it contains a lot of proteins.

View more photos and recipes of my daily breakfasts.

Honestly, I chose a slow and steady exercise pattern so I do not stress a lot and at the same time enjoy what I am doing. I am neither in a race or competition with anyone nor need to prove to anyone. I enjoy my pace and helps me have a fantastic work/life balance. I continue to sleep 6-7 hours every night.

Having a strong mind matters

If not for my own self-determination, I would not have continued progressing and enjoying my fitness regime. I have found it extremely hard in the past to completely switch off and start something new on the fitness front. So, I trained my mind really well before even starting my fitness regime. It was a conscious choice to improve my health too because I was epileptic and have been on medication for many years. Last year, I abruptly stopped my medication and told myself I am not going to continue medicines and will work towards improving my health and fitness. I have experienced certain side effects of having consumed those epileptic medicines hence I had one more reason to stop eating them.

Certain sacrifices I made

  1. Reducing alcohol intake gradually in 2016. In 2017, I have consumed only 4 litres in the last months and hope to not increase beyond 5 litres.
  2. Cutting down on sugar intake. —> Not easy as I have a sweet tooth.
  3. Eating out —> Not easy as I love tasting different food and was in to food blogging and restaurant reviewing.
  4. No late night parties and sleeping late
  5. Quit smoking

If you are willing to compromise and make sacrifices for your own progress, that is when you accomplish what you want. – PritishSocial 

7 Things I Strictly Followed

  1. Never ask my gym trainer for tips or personal training
  2. Never listen to anyone giving me advice on my eating habits if I did not ask
  3. Sleeping  6-7 hours every night
  4. Cooking my own food and experimenting —> gives a lot of happiness
  5. Resting one day in a week
  6. Drinking Green Tea after dinner
  7. Eating a banana or biscuit upon waking up in the morning
