It’s been a year since I was DROPPED by Gymshark. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was a Gymshark athlete. Then, overnight, I wasn’t anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unsuccessful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👆🏼 That’s how I could have defined myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being dropped could have been a huge set back. It could’ve thrown me off and stopped me from dreaming big. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead, it forced me to dream bigger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It motivated me to build MY OWN thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And it showed me that relying on someone else for my success is DANGEROUS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That was a massively pivotal moment for me. It really showed me the importance of building your own business that nobody can take away from you. And it showed me the importance of building an audience for the value that you share. Rather than you building an audience as you’re an extension of a brand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s why I’m so passionate about helping fitness coaches build their own online business, instead of CHASING sponsorships from brands. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think Gymshark is an awesome company and their team is CRUSHING it. I have mad respect for them as a business. Using athletes to grow is SMART. So go watch my latest YouTube video for my in depth talk on how life is, one year after being dropped. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One thing I forgot to mention in the video is about social media engagement. I’ve found it incredibly interesting because, back then, my engagement was insanely high. I got 6000-8000 likes on average. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, I get a fraction of that. But the thing is... my income is significantly higher, I have a team so I’m putting food on the table for people, and I stress less about vanity metrics like that. Just a bit of insight there for ya. 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

QDOBAE >>> CHIPOTBAE
I love both but guac isn’t extra at Qdoba...💁🏼♀️
This is one of my favorite places to go for a healthy, quick meal! I mean really, it can be a balanced, micronutrient dense, high fiber, high protein, delicious meal 😛
MY USUAL ORDER (and why):
•lettuce on the bottom 🥗 (adds volume)
•steak 🥩 (I don’t eat much red meat but the steak is just as lean as the chicken here, so this is a good time to get some iron in!)
•half scoop white rice 🍚 (I don’t really like brown rice, and the small amount of extra nutrients it has isn’t worth it to me lol)
•half scoop pinto beans (high fiber)
•extra fajita veggies 🌶 (make it more filling and it doesn’t cost extra- vit C also helps absorb iron)
•corn 🌽(I just like it.. lol)
•pico 🍅 (adds flavor and nutrients)
•guac on the side 🥑 (healthy fats)
•cilantro 🌱 (did you know some people think cilantro tastes soapy if that’s you please comment below lol)
You can easily recreate this at home for less money too!
Coconut Oil or Mayonnaise
I stopped adding mayonnaise on sandwiches and burgers about a year ago. The first time I tried it, I thought my burgers were too dry. I kept on doing it because after eating it I didn't feel gross. Eventually, I started liking the hint of coconut on my taste buds. Now, I CANNOT imagine myself eating mayonnaise on a sandwich or burger.
It's not about what you're used to. It's the fact that our parents didn't know they went into an era of processed foods that inevitably raised a high cancer rate in their generation. It's about admitting that some ways of growing up need to be reevaluated and we have to be willing to accept change for OUR future generation.
Point of the story, this breakfast egg sandwich was delish 😋

“Hi, I’m Sasha and I’m addicted to @vivavivera shawarma pieces.”
These really are the tastiest little pieces of heaven 😍
Last night we had these on naan bread. I’ve forgotten the brand but found in @asda 👌🏼🌱
“Mint yoghurt”- literally mayo and mint sauce mixed together 💚
Treviso salad: Aioli, endive, orange, hazelnuts, parmesan. Fresh, crisp, delicious. 👌
Life hack of the day: Join Landry’s Club, a loyalty program that gives you a $25 gift card every year for your birthday month 🎂✨ It can be used at all sorts of Florida restaurants like The Chart House, Yak and Yeti and T-Rex at Disney, Morton’s, Bubba Gump Shrimp, and many more! You can put the money towards a big meal, but we usually just enjoy the drinks, apps, and sunset views at the Chart House with it 🍸
We pride ourselves on carefully sourced ingredients, creative cuisine, atmosphere, AND hosting a private party that people will be talking about for weeks. If you are looking for a private event space for any special occasion, we have some great options, including a private room above our restaurant featuring a full-service bar and balcony.

Unpopular opinion: Fumi’s may be better than Giovanni’s 😬 hear me out. We went around 1pm and there was no wait. Their shrimp is fresher, juicer, and bigger. Their sauce doesn’t get too messy, isn’t overly salty, and SUPER garlic-y 🤤 BONUS POINTS: they have a huge sink area (with great smelling soap) to wash your hands after!!! 11/10 would recommend to everyone visiting north shore.
Eat's Khao Man Gai @eat_gai translates to 'Rice Fat Chicken' 🐔 in Thai, and it was a match made in heaven for us. 🤤
Swipe 👉👉👉 to see all the Action!
The braised boneless (that's right, Bone-less) Chicken was tender and flavorful. It paired wonderfully with the chicken rice which was cooked using the original chicken fat. You can tell why it's their signature dish. 👌
The Chicken Pad Thai was Amazing, and stole the show for us! It was light yet full of that fragrant, authentic thai flavor. It's our New favorite Pad Thai in the city. 😍
The Chicken thai basil🍃 had just the right amount of heat🔥 to balance out all the choices.
Let's not forget the 3 house sauces : Ginger garlic chile, green chile hot sauce, and sweet soy sauce. 🙌
All delicious - All Over Everything !
If you're in the east village in NYC, this is a must try 👍
It’s Taco Tuesday! Enjoy $2. Tacos!
Or 2 Tacos with our Craft Margarita, Sangria, or Mexican Beer for $10.! Open lunch and Dinner! 🌮
Savory Sweet Potato Toast is the perfect healthy lunch or mid-morning snack! Adorned my sweets with tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach sautéed with onions and garlic! Currently wishing I made more 🤩
Here’s a couple tips! 🗣
1. Craving something sweet
Try topping sweet potato toast with sliced bananas and peanut butter for a delicious treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!
2. For a savory but more filling snack try topping this toast with a medium~well boiled egg for some added protein to keep you going throughout the day!!
UDUPI TO DUBAI 🇮🇳🇦🇪 :-
Chicken Sukka & Chicken Curry,
Gobbling it up with Neer Dosa like I'm in a hurry,
Probably the best combo to have when I'm in fury,
When I'm delighted or when I'm angry 😏
So a few days ago we were invited for dinner,
By Varun's mom who cooks better than Thomas Keller,
The star of the night was a little boy,
The boy will fill your day with joy,
Who will have your attention & keep you occupied,
With his innocent heart, softer than a soft toy 👦
I tasted this first when I was at home,
When my Shetty neighbours sent some - with love,
And then I moved to the land of Krishna - the Lord,
And I'm having it even when I'm abroad ✈️
That's about how I tasted an epic dish in Mumbai,
Which stayed with me all the way from UDUPI TO DUBAI ! 🇦🇪
