My name’s Wani (well, the shorter, more user-friendly version of my name) and writing has always spoken for me more than the spoken word. I’ve always had a passion for writing, but at the start of 2011 I found myself in a place where I felt like I needed to do something for myself. I was at the end of a terrible 5-year relationship that left me utterly broken and lost – until I found myself through focusing on fitness and health.
I was the heaviest I ever was, tipping the scale at 67 kilograms, and only being 1.58m short, that’s plenty of pudgy for anyone to notice. My best friend dared me to go on a no-meat diet for 7 days, just for kicks, knowing how much I LOVE my meat. 😉 I have not looked back since then. That one solid week forced me to re-look not only my diet, but also highlighted my lack of self-control, and worse, absence of self-respect.
I’m currently down to about 55 kilograms (as you know, weight always fluctuates), and the fittest I’ve ever been. I’m still a work in progress, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. I’ve learnt that ATTITUDE is a such a huge player in reaching your goals and fighting your demons.
As such, I want to share the good (and not so good) news in my journey to attempt to achieve a balance between inner peace and organised chaos. You should also know my emotional relationship with food is almost as intense as my crazy love for HIIT workouts.
Every lunch time presents a dilemma for me on what to eat. And if I’m not working up a sweat during my down time, I’m content just snuggling up to my two cats, watching the world go by. I hope you find this place as a source of inspiration as much as I feel grateful for having the opportunity to share it with all of you.
