We all hope to magically lose that extra weight, quit the junk food and Hashtag our photos with healthy can be sexy, but let’s be honest, healthy isn’t really that sexy, however, it is a necessity!
A common excuse is that staying in shape is hard when you spend most of the time at work, and you have got no option but to satisfy your craving with all the temptations surrounding you.
This is unfortunately true, and I have suffered the same issue until I was too sacred to stand on a scale, and so here are the things I have done to ensure I stay fit during work and not give in to my cravings.
1. Eat sensibly.
First things first, is to quit all the extra and unnecessary sweets that you munch on throughout the day. The next step is to say no to all the junk food, and practice self control. Office colleagues may impose a huge temptation on you, but the key is to learn to say no! Also moderation is important, you don’t have to give up completely on fast food, just limit its consumption.
You can start your day by a good, fulfilling breakfast; that will help you stay full till midday and you won’t feel the urge to consume munchies. Always keep fruits nearby, and avoid unhealthy, greasy food.
Snacks are crucial, we know, so you may want to snack on healthy alternatives, such as fruits, nuts, granola bars or healthy smoothies.
2. Drink plenty of water.
I often forget to drink water, as I get busy with work so I lose track of how much water I have consumed. In order to avoid that, you can get the large water bottle, and keep it in front of you on the desk.
If you’re not a huge fan of water, you can have juicy fruits instead, this will also keep your body from dehydration.
3- Bring your own food
Bringing your own lunch to work will force you to refuse takeouts, it is also cleaner and much much healthier. It doesn’t have to be a boring meal, any homemade meal will make a great substitute to junk food.
I personally, bring with me salads or pasta with Turkey or Tuna. for different salad and pastas ideas, click here.
4- Take the stairs
If you don’t have time for the gym, then the simplest form of exercise would do. Skip the elevator, and start taking the stairs instead! And if you get to have lunch break outside the office, choose a nearby restaurant and walk to it.
5- Motivation is the Key!
We all get motivated at first, eager to lose the weight and start this healthy lifestyle, but it doesn’t take long that we lose the motivation and we go back to our old habits. Because motivation is the key, start following pages on Instagram that posts healthy recipes, body transformations, tips on how to how to stay fit, etc.
6- Mind over body
Choose to think positively about this change, believe that it is a better lifestyle, and not something that you are forced to do. Think of how good it is to not feel bloated all the time! Sometimes, we eat because we’re bored or upset, understanding this and fighting the unnecessary urge to eat is important, following your mind and not what your body tells you, is what will keep you going.

Aaaaand they’re out!! Ladies and gents, we present to you our fabric shopping bag that folds up into a small pouch so that it can ALWAYS be with you ready for use wherever you go. This product is 100% financed and supported by Seoudi Supermarket. Yup, you read that correctly! These incredibly nice people completely encouraged and welcomed the idea and completely adopted it AND agreed for it to be a zero-profit project! It was so mind-shifting to witness this kind of mindfulness at that level of success. 💚 So yes!!! Yalla! We’re starting off in only in the 2 branches in Maadi and if it goes well we’re going to fabric bag the whole city! #drumstickdesigns #seoudisupermarket #cairo #egypt #environment #livegreen #ecofriendly #totebag #arabic
This way, these fabric shopping bags can soon substitute plastic ones, if people are willing to cut down on their plastic use and go for the smarter, eco-friendlier choices.
The product is 100% financed and supported by Seoudi Supermarket, whereas they completely welcomed and encouraged the idea of adopting to it and agreed for this project to be a zero-profit one.
The fabric bags are only available in 2 branches in Maadi, but if it is off to a good start, they will soon ‘Fabric bag the whole city!‘
Our hope is that people’s attitude towards this idea, would be the same as Seoudi’s. And for them to accept this change, hopefully to be turned into a lifestyle.
Mohamed Mamdouh Apologizes to the People Criticizing Him
It looks like being a successful actor, who was capable of proving himself in the plenty of roles that he played, isn’t enough to get people off his back.
Mohamed Mamdouh has been proving himself each year as a competent actor, and this year was no different. However, people have been criticizing the actor for his short breath and pronunciation. Which was brought up in an interview with Al Arabya, to which his answer to this was a genuine apology.
But why should he be sorry? Such a flaw doesn’t make him any less of a good actor, and this flaw was even unnoticed by countless of his fans, who have been defending him since yesterday.
This brings us to an issue that not only celebrities face, but we do too, and that is bullying. It may not seem this way to some, because their claim could be that it’s merely their opinion, something the actor should work on. But it is a verbal bullying, and everyday we encounter the same thing.
What is merely your opinion, might affect the person’s self esteem and make them doubt themselves and their capabilities. Your comment about someone’s hair, body, or even their outfit, is one you should always keep to yourself. Because most of the time, people already know about their flaw, they just don’t like it when it’s pointed out to them.
Mohamed Mamdoud has been killing it in this year’s series ‘Qabeel‘, his portrayal of a person who’s severely manipulated by his mental illness is quite impressive. Not only that, but the way he’s mourning for his long gone wife, is giving us all the feels.
So why after giving a killer performance, should he be faced with such a criticism?
GOT Fans Start a Petition Demanding a Full Remake of Season 8
If you haven’t yet watched the latest episode of GOT then don’t through with this article, because spoilers lie ahead!
Even though episode 5 aired days ago, people still don’t seem to get over what happened during this horrific episode. They surely can’t accept that the breaker of chains turned mad, and ruined everything for us.
Now, people are taking their anger to a whole new level, where a new Change.org petition is circulating from a Night King–loving fan named Dylan D, asking HBO to remake the ENTIRE season ‘with competent writers’ instead of Thrones Showrunners, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
“David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e., the books) to fall back on,” Dylan’s call to action reads. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
The petition has been up for less than a week now and it’s already gotten almost 278,135 signatures from equally annoyed fans!
Here the link for the petition, for all the angry fans out there who are demanding the same!
