Your body can do it, it’s time to convince your mind! And once you have convinced that mind, it’s always been better when done together!
This was a journey which me and my husband set ourselves upon 10 months ago under the able guidance of our beloved mentor Shiwali Pathania.
Owing to our sedentary lifestyle choices fitness and exercise had taken a backseat when it came to prioritizing family & work commitments over your own health and wellbeing.
This eventually had started taking a heavy toll on our minds and bodies. Fatigue, gastric issues, high-stress levels, lack of motivation self-esteem issues had become an integral part of lives.
It was high time, and we desperately needed a lifestyle reboot to overhaul our unhealthy regime.
It was then when I got Shiwali’s reference from a friend, who herself was a mentee under Shiwali and had showcased an amazing transformation.
So, me and my husband set off on this journey along with Shiwali with a with a belief in mind that come what may, we will stive our level best to be the best versions of ourselves!
Quantification of food was novel to husband, lifting weight was new to me but slowly and steadily we snowballed to our final goals.
As a couple we exercise in the evenings together and strived to be the best support systems and biggest motivators for each other.
Shiwali always said that – “Physical fitness and a healthy diet are long-term fixes and can’t be radically changed overnight. Start slowly and stay consistent”.
So, I guess it is - “consistency” that we would take as the biggest learning lesson from our mentor Shiwali. I feel that FITTR is one such programme which encourages you and not pushes you to break the boundaries you set for yourself!
Although we have posted 'before' and 'after' pics today there is still a lot that is to be achieved to embark ourselves on this journey to a healthier self.
Thanks once gain Shiwali for being such an amazing mentor. Keep on impacting the lives of many others like us. Kudos to you!!
And the journey continues ……
