A road to a better me

7th July 2019

Hey guys, I know it has been a while since I have published a new blog post. It has been a super hectic few months. To be honest, I think hectic is an understatement, but I am back! As you may or may not know I have finally released my beauty book Insta-Glam which is finally available both online and in stores!

The past week has given me a little extra free time to really evaluate why I constantly kept going around in a toxic circle when it came to my health and fitness. I always seem to go on a diet prior to an upcoming occasion hence why it has never been permanent as I stop trying when I reach my goal for that particular occasion. But I am tired of taking this approach, so I have made a set of goals for myself to follow, without being too restrictive on myself.

  1. Aim to go to the gym 3-5 days a week. (I personally love being at the gym, the hardest part for me is getting there but once I get there, I am able to try and make the most of it. Side note: I managed to go 5 days this week!)
  2. Try out some form of meditation. (This past week I have listened to guided meditations on YouTube a couple of minutes before I get into bed ready to sleep, this has helped me to relax and take deep breaths. I get stressed out so easily, so for me it is super important to relax, meditate, read my Quran before bed and also try to avoid my phone)
  3. DO NOT try and go on a huge calorie deficit after a day of binge eating because it will just be another toxic cycle waiting to happen.
  4. MORE lifting, less cardio.

I have always felt like all my motivation and energy meant nothing if I didn’t start to see results in a short space of time, I was hungry for a change but far from patient. Plastered all over the gym walls are a reminder that it takes at least four weeks (of consistency obvs) for you to see results, eight weeks for your friends and family to notice a change in your body & twelve weeks for the rest of the world.

Consistency is key, and I won’t give up this time because I don’t want an occasional or seasonal change, I want a permanent and lifestyle change. Periodttttttttt.
