Do what makes you happy!
People are going to judge you either way.
Having 4 generations on the maternal side living in the same house is not very common in the Indian set up. Daughters will often leave their parents home to go live in their husbands houses - a custom I never understood. Why does this seem to be the rule Why cant daughters make their own choices and decide where they want to live , at a time like this my mother and grandmother are both giving me so much strength and support, the kind that has a very deep thread going through it. The woman I call mother, who is my everything was brought into the world by my nani and the child I’m bringing into the world is only because my mother chose to have me. These ties are special. Motherhood in every sense is beautiful, but I also believe , along with rejoicing in the gifts we have been given by nature we also need to learn to resist allowing people to put us in boxes , we as women are beyond simply being mothers , daughters and wives. We must seek the individual in us that can intuitively make wise decisions for ourselves before our family first. My mother has been an inspiration in this journey - a line she always spoke with honesty in her eyes “ I can only keep my family happy if I first happy within”
So if you’re a woman, and a certain guilt seems to swarm you for wanting to find happiness in all ways, learn to re condition yourself to understand a happy woman, is a happy world. We suffer in many ways as a society and as a world because women haven’t till today taken their lives in their hands, and learnt to live it on their terms!

This sounds simple and almost too simple that we don't do it.
But as the weather is turning and it's getting colder, darker and wetter outside, our motivation to train can start to drip off.
Plan your exercise sessions in to your week then there's already some commitment and also you won't run out of time each day to train.
Wow! My chin has an extra chin!!
For the first time in a LONG time my fitness journey has changed! I could dress my current phase up as a ‘cut’ but what’s the point in making it sound good for social media. New job; new routine and injury coupled with a new found love of kebabs has left me feeling and looking like a bear who spent Autumn putting its winter coat on for hibernation. On the upside there’s been no guilt or upset at kebab gate. I enjoyed each and every one of them 😂 Kebabs are life right 🤣🤣🤣
Weight loss isn’t new to me. It’s an old phase revisited. It’s a hard phase so if you see me in the gym and think ‘Jesus your one must always be cold wearing her baggy jumpers’; no, she’s just self conscious and uncomfortable with her appearance currently. I’ll still be smiling though; that’s the one consistent part of my body lately ☺️✌🏻
