BMI-Body Mass Index is a measurement of a person’s size in respect to what is seen as either underweight, normal, over-weight, obese and morbidly obese. It is an approximate measurement of your body fat. It uses your weight and height to calculate a number that indicates whether you are what is generalised according to the health and medical institutions as a healthy, by weight.

If a person is overweight according to the recommended sizes, they are more at risk of developing health problems such as

· cardiovascular (heart and blood circulation) disease

· high blood pressure (hypertension)

· type 2 diabetes

· osteoarthritis

· certain types of cancers

· depression and other mental health disorders.

If a person is underweight, they may be a risk of some of the following health issues, including:

· compromised immune function

· respiratory disease

· malnourished

· digestive diseases

· cancer

· osteoporosis

It is not something that cannot be changed. These disease and illness can be reversed. Finding a routine to implement movement and mindful eating can assist you in your journey. Remember this does not define your beauty according to what makes sense (your own definition of beauty). It defines your wellbeing, your energy, your ease of body movement and more.

I remind my clients that this journey needs to be for what you would like it to look like, what you would like to feel like and for what you can maintain as a healthy lifestyle.

“Beautiful people are not always good, but good people are always beautiful”. Sayyidina Ali

Beauty isn’t about the size you are, what you look like externally, your material possessions its about you internally. You as a compassionate and caring person, you as loving being, you as a good friend, you as a good daughter or son….this is beauty.

Aisha reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, gentleness is not found in anything but that it beautifies it, and it is not removed from anything but that it disgraces it.”

1000% I AGREE!!

Thankfully this mindset of exercise is a punishment is decreasing.

However, still many people associate exercise with some form of cruelty to their body that is agonising, far too long, not quick enough results in trying to mould, shape and squeeze at their bodies like some type of punishment for the satisfaction of others, or of what may seem popular in the media in that season, at that second, or for someone’s enjoyment and a lil of their own….


I used to train for long. Not that I thought to do so due to food, but enjoyment. Or, my mind trying to change something on my body in a long hard workout,

like it could be bought and some-how appear on my body, fixed after the workout was complete.LOL!

This may have been the mindset when scoffing our face with foods that are processed, full of sugar, additives and preservatives and then go for a run or to the gym for a minimum of 1 hour and a half yet, to complain ‘the food still makes me feel the same’ and ‘I train so long I should have reached my goal by now’ or just fall asleep. Not through being busy all day, but due to the lack of movement and nutritious eating. Eat mindfully.

My training changed from becoming busier and more children. Short but smart, effective and functional is my philosophy which I have lived by for many years. This has aided me in being able to stay physically active as a mum, not only up and down due to my children, but through exercise body movement of my choice.

The benefits I have found maintaining this lifestyle are encompassed in everything that I do. All areas of my being. Mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. I have gained immensely from having time to focus, meditate, contemplate, strengthen, smile through my movements with the outcome of a better me.

Eat with the intention of nourishing your body and exercise to enhance it.
