Hit the gym!

We both know a little too well the struggle of desperately wanting to get skinnier/ fitter and not being able to. Why? Its just because we love food so much. But every once in a while we get a surge of motivation that pushes us towards the gym. Here are a few tips we have acquired over the very much-interrupted years of training:

“Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement.” – Marv Levy

Find a workout buddy! This is an absolute must, because this is the person that will push you to go even though you really really don’t want to sometimes, they are the person that will count your reps and help you get up when your own muscles wont lift you up anymore. Needless to say, we go to the gym together, workout together and motivate each other when we take on yet another attempt to diet.

Be colorful! Workout clothes are just FUN, its your chance to wear whatever you want without having to worry, because lets face it, it’ll be drenched in sweat in an hour or so. You can also bring back neons, they’re a trend that has gone out of fashion but they motivate like no other color! So get your blue running shoes, printed yoga pants and neon yellow t-shirt on and head to the gym!

Be consistent! If you skip a day, you’ll most likely skip two after it, so be consistent, set a goal for yourself. It could be either going for three days a week or six days a week, but whatever you decide, you have to stick with it.

Proximity is key! Don’t go too far, your gym should be a walking distance from your home, because you’ll most likely be very discouraged by the traffic -at least if you live in the busy streets of Cairo like we do- so pick a place that’s close by so you’ll find less excuses not to go.

It’s very ironic that we’re giving this advice but we have the hardest time following it! But hey, at least we’re trying..

    Above all dedication and consistency are the most important. You can eat the foods you like, just not as much! Walking is great to burn fat, mix that up with some sprints and trust me you’ll tear through fat! Add some weight training into your program, and believe me you’ll get the resulta you want!

    Ps. that’s nice how you two are so close. Cherish your memories together!
