Thanks What Women Want – magazine and my friend Reem Gamil for giving me the chance to share my story with others. I hope it can inspire men and women who wish to change for good. #ImReborn #Reboot_2015

My journey towards a healthier lifestyle started after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, then a few months later I was diagnosed with another in my uterus.

Sometimes simple choices so hard to make, even when they might benefit us, like going for a run or eating healthier food options. BUT if you believe that the changes we wish we could make, it will be so much easier to make those simple choices that benefit us — Thank you David Seisay for making making the healthy choice the default choice for me and many others.

Inspiring and maintaining personal behavior change is not easy, but ensuring a sustainable health attitude for a better future is absolutely worth it. Behavior change is neither simple nor linear; it will require greater awareness, commitment, innovation and determination.

So DONT GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!

My Salad .. My Way!!

As I have been sitting in bed typing while feeling sick for a while. I wanted to chat about working out while sick. Do you do it? Do you rest? But what if you’re sick multiple days in a row? Do you rest all those days?

I had a big workout week planned. Lots of heavy lifting and some cardio intervals, but then I had the flu which came with a horrible sinus headache, then I had to go for a surgery.

Sometimes in life it pays to suck it up and rally, and sometimes you have to know when it’s time to rest and pay attention to your body. Being sick is one of those times. So all I did was – Rest, Reflect, and Recover!!

As I can’t be in the gym, I tried to eat healthy and drink lots of fresh juices to recover.

I got some fresh Mesclun Mix (Baby Green Romaine, Baby Red Oak Leaf, Baby Iceberg, Baby Spinach & Arugula) from the Inseason store located in Zamalek and customized it my way.
I added some almonds and fresh berries for the first salad.
