I was never a health freak; partly because I have been blessed with great genes, partly because like many I am lazy and inconsistent. Having relied on shortcuts to lose weight all my life, I relied on quick fixes to shed of the few kilos I would gain during Mango season! Whether it was an approaching wedding, or a photograph I looked fat in, my reasons to exercise or go on a diet were always temporary and fickle!
Recently, after having my second baby and packing a few extra kilos, I realized quick fixes really don't work as well in mid thirties as they did just a few years ago! I tried everything. Giving up meetha, not having wheat, resorting to poultry and boiled rice meals, brisk walk, but the weighing scale wouldn't budge! That is when I started reading and realized I had a lifetime of health mistakes to answer for.
Luckily, I have found a great answer to my health and fitness woes-The Forever Lean program conducted by Adnan Farooq at CORE in Lahore. For the next few weeks, I will take you through my journey towards my healthy new life, for now I have some amazing tips I have learnt during the first week of signing up (and vowed to see through) this amazing 6 weeks program!
Here are the things you should remember no matter what age, size, gender you are!
Being forever lean and healthy does not have an overnight success formula, you have to work your way towards it. It isn’t a bootcamp that will get you to your goal in a fixed number of days. It is a change mostly in your mind and self that will put you on the path of health and fitness. Something that will stick with you much longer than 6 weeks!
