Battle of the Bulge

Creating My Own Stepping Stones

the Battle of the bulge is not easy: we become moody, edgy, irritable, touchy and so much more. So its easy to give up and fall of the wagon. That is why a support group is necessary.
So I have been Lucky that I have my own little support group with me, its been a bumpy ride but we are getting there.
So when I started my weight loss journey and decided to join the GYM my mom laughed as did the immediate family who are close to me. You see I had done this so many times no one thought I would manage to pull it off.
Don’t get me wrong, they were tired of my joining the GYM and not going through and they all thought “ok another failed attempt” But this time what no one realized was that I have had blessings sent to me (everything happens for a reason)

Putting Myself Out There

Putting myself out there to show it can be done. Did you know that I had surgery on my wrist in the past where I lost 80% of my movement on my right arm, a long time ago and now calcification on my right shoulder, so I can’t really do very heavy weights or use too much of my body weight as pressure on that part of my body. However, I haven’t allowed that to hinder my workout. This wasn’t easy but I killed it, So Never Give Up 🥰. With Coach @s.velida_my awesome coach who takes all my injuries and still finds a way around it @azerwellness  

Hiking – Wadi Shaab & Ras Al Hadd

So 2 weekends ago in Oman we decided to go on a little Wadi trip, which I was convinced to join in on last minute. Little did I know what I was letting myself in fore. I am known to be the most unadventurous person on the planet … but that was in the past 🙂

we started from Muscat, to head to a place called Wadi Shab … and so the story unfolds as follows:

On the way to #Sur is a little oasis called Wadi Shab (وادي شاب) With my lovelies not knowing what I was actually in for, thinking I was just going on a small leisurely out door #walk.

The main attraction is the water fall in the cave, which you can reach after roughly 45 minutes of #hiking (I was DECEIVED).

I hiked, swam in clear blue waters in natural pools with sweet water fish, for the first time in my life. also complained 90% of my way there to everyone, but without them I wouldn’t have been able to do it.

Some pictures I borrowed from @omantripper (sorry and thank you) i hope you dont mind, since I was told we can’t take anything with us

We then drove to Ras Al Hadd see the #turtles (turtle reserve) where we were met by a very good friend of mine another special person nick named (Al Badawi) for coming from Ja’alan to see us and take us turtle watching.

Support Group Necessity – Reach Out

the Battle of the bulge is not easy:  we become moody, edgy, irritable, touchy and so much more. So its easy to give up and fall of the wagon. That is why a support group is necessary.

So I have been Lucky that I have my own little support group with me, its been a bumpy ride but we are getting there.

So when I started my weight loss journey and decided to join the GYM my mom laughed as did the immediate family who are close to me. You see I had done this so many times  no one thought I would manage to pull it off.

Don’t get me wrong, they were tired of my joining the GYM and not going through and they all thought “ok another failed attempt” But this time what no one realized was that I have had blessings sent to me (everything happens for a reason) :

  • My Son Noah – my Miracle (A gift from God);

  • A Girl Called Nadia Khan from London

    • there is so much I can say and yet it would not be enough (she is another beautiful soul that has walked the walk with me & still is)

    • she joined the GYM with me

    • she came with me relentlessly for months & due to busy life schedules we try to work out together when possible

    • stood by me through it all – a backbone

  • another called Christin from Berlin – but she’s more Omani now 🙂

    • a force to reckon with as well

    • my rock & backbone

    • another beautiful soul who has walked the walk & still is

  • and sitting in Budapest is my Sister Anna Maria who lives on the 4th floor, without a lift (you can imagine how many times I cursed her coz I had walk up 94 steps and down 94 steps) 😉

    • my globe-trotter

    • someone who has stood by me from across the continents

    • another soul sent to me, a force to be reckoned with and my pillars of strength

the above was how it started, along the way the circle increased

  • my Coaches

  • Mum & Dad, they started to believe (they are my parents always stood by me, but as far as loosing weight was concerned it was hard for them to believe)

  • Princess Ash & Khali (uncle) Shez from Manchester – my cousins

  • Hilal Al Habsi – Someone who Believes & true to his word

  • Ahmed Al Omairi – training us now a friend & brother

  • Eva Stanley Jones – Making it Happen, like a breath of Fresh Air

  • the gyms

  • my online supporters

  • those who only say they support – talk is cheap 

There are those that would like to remain anonymous & those that breezed in and out of my life, bringing or teaching us something positive in life.

Everyone needs support something or someone to fall back on … as the shrinking arab feel free to contact me for that, I know how it feels:
