For me nothing like working out with a partner. I love this girl in particular @alinicalmon , she is strong ,likes to push herself and is committed to a healthier lifestyle like me. Tag your workout partner and say why you like exercising together .
I would like to congratulate all the amazing mothers out there , we have the most beautiful job and the hardest one. I have been bless to be a mother of 4 wonderful children, each one so different from the other yet they are all my own creation . @sophiacherfan is my only princess , my partner, my caring one. @karim_cherfan the lawyer , the challenger ,the logical one with a huge heart. @nadim_fan is our sports man, our funny guy, sometimes a bit shy, with a heart of gold. Luca is my little one, my source of energy , mi derriengue. I wonder if they will ever know how much of me belongs to them. I have learned since I became a mother of fears I didn’t know existed and of feelings I didn’t know I had . Being a mother is the best gift God has giving me.#wonderferlife#feelingblessed😇#happymothersday#mumof4

“Strive for progress not perfection “. I love posting photos of before and after. The picture on the left was taken on my 43 bday I felt I was looking great. The picture on the right was taken 2 weeks ago and oh my I can see the difference. I never had a problem of self confidence, on the contrary I am always giving myself compliments . My friends always make fun of me saying only you can say those things. I started this week with my new nutrition plan ( no more strict dieting ) , I am eating 5 times a day , I have more variety for breakfast , the doctor has included more fruits and for my luck rice 🍚 (basmati or brown ). Also I have functional sweets ( once a week ) either chocolate mousse or lemon pie). My exercise routine has also changed, I exercise 5 times a week. I do Zumba and personal training twice (I work all my body plus weights ). Once a week I do low cardio and movement. The aim for me now is to maintain my body weight, gain muscles and make my body more toned. I am working harder on my butt and it’s sooo difficult to improve but I am giving it the benefit of the doubt . Keep on following my journey and I hope you get inspired to treat your body with love and respect like I do.
The love of a mother is unconditional but the love of a child is pure so pure that makes us parents work harder to do right by our children. @sophiacherfan I was so happy to have you around, to have your smell at home to pamper you but best of all to hug you and kiss you every day. Wishing you all the best in your internship you are going to shine my love. See you soon #wonderferlife#motherdaughterlove#childrenlivingabroad#universitydays

I started this journey on the 19th of September 2017. I had no target 🎯 and no goals . The truth is I wanted to challenge myself and lose some weight. After 2 weeks on the program, my husband and I had to travel for medical reasons and little that I knew, I had to stay away for 3 weeks. I managed to control myself but it was not enough as I was staying in a hotel and could not cook my meals and I was doing gym on my own. So when I came back I started more seriously . It has been 7 months with a dramatic change in my lifestyle , I carried food with me everywhere , reduced my alcohol intake and increased my exercise routine . I motivate myself everyday , how? By seen progress , by reaching goals and by the changes in my body. I tap myself everyday on the back and say to myself “Mary you did it “ . The drawback is that once you have reached your target you want more and more . At least this is me . Today I met with my nutritionist and my personal trainer and I had a slap 👋 in my face because not only I reached what I wanted but I went too far in terms of my numbers ( not a good thing ) . My body fat is very low ( I did not get my period this month ) , I have to increase my body mass at least by 2 kilos , I have to reduce my exercises and do a different type of training. Meaning I have to take a day to recover and exercise 5 times a week instead of 6. Starting next week I will try my new program in terms of nutrition and exercise. I want my body to be more defined and firm , I know I might sound crazy but I want to achieve it and I know I can . My body is still under construction 🚧, I feel better than ever and I am so happy that I am able to inspire others to do better and take the next step. If I can’t reach my next goal I will be ok because at the age of almost 44 I am living a healthier lifestyle and I am taking care of myself. So never say never , just say one day at a time. The sky is the limit so push yourself and treat your body with respect . I will keep you posted about my new routine and let’s see where it will take me 💕
