#IndependenceDay Azaadi Mubarak readers! This year, our independence day falls on the same day as the third day of Eidul Azha. Which means we have not one, but two reasons to celebrate 14th August, hence we bring you a list of things to do to have double the fun

14th August Merchandise Hundreds of vendors set up stalls, selling special merchandise to celebrate Pakistan’s Independence Day. Every street and corner has stalls for these itemseverywhere you go it seeps of the green independence spirit. There are stalls of all sizes decorated with variablysized national flags; badges, green and white coloured bangles; and of course, flag-painted tees which attract customers of all ages.

Festive Lights Don’t forget to decorate your home with pretty festive lights and flags. Hoist the National Flag on top of your roof. Motivate the young ones to decorate your homes in flags, banners, balloons, stars, badges, door hangers, candles and all colours reviving independence. While some opt for green and gold themed lights for true Independence Day spirit, we will be decorating our home with pretty fairy lights and a huge flag of Pakistan. This will give us and our homes a feeling of patriotism and help the younger ones value the spirit of this day.

Dinner First things first, a delicious meal with our friends and family at our favourite cafe/ restaurant is mandatory. We’ll be heading to Xander’s or Thyme to store up on all the energy for a long, fun-filled night ahead. AUGUST 11-17 2019

Chai & Fireworks What is Indepedence day celebration without fireworks? Non-existent! Get the real feel of Indepedence Day as you enjoy the true spirit of patriotism with loud patriotic songs and Pakistan Zindabad chants blaring from left, right and centre. At mid-night just when the clock is about to strike 12 we will be heading to the famous Icon Towers to witness the grand fireworks to celebrate Pakistan’s 73rd Independence Day and later head to Chotu Chaiwala for a hot cup of chai and some board games.

Breakfast Breakfast at Boat Basin has always been a popular choice especially on Independence Day. Amidst those sights and sounds; seeing people sporting green and white traditional wear and flags and badges of their beloved nation, with speakers blaring national songs – brings a profound sense of comfort in all this. Order some desi omelette and paratha with a cup of karak chai while you chat away with your friends and family. While making all these memories don’t forget to take pictures!

Eid Soirees While Independence Day celebrations will be in full swing, we cannot disappoint our relatives, so it is mandatory to dress up and show up to family Eid gatherings and feast on scrumptious meaty dishes. Parade and Sightseeing Hop in your car with your friends and family to enjoy different sightseeing. Our first stop will be Mazaar-e-Quaid to experience the annual parade! Despite our struggles with a constantly interrupted power supply, we sure know how to light up our country for Independence Day celebrations. Our courts, assemblies and even apartment complexes are beautifully wrapped with green and white bulbs, bringing Christmas to Pakistan a few months early. A ride around the city in a crammed car with friends and family on the eve of Independence Day is must for a patriot; with mili naghmas blaring from the car speakers and everyone enjoying themselves, it is a sight to cherish.

Bar B Q Eidul Azha is incomplete without a Bar B Q with friends and family! Gear up to get your hands dirty while you cook some meat and later enjoy the feast while listening to songs and playing some quizzes about Pakistan’s history to keep the Independence Day spirit alive!

FITNESS

AUGUST 11-17 2019

What’s your typical day like? It varies. However I find time to focus on trying to improve myself in some way every day. This varies from challenging myself at the gym, learning a new recipe or reading about a topic to further my understanding of it. The other thing I do every day is be thankful for everything and everyone in my life because when you have a positive mind-set, it’s difficult to have a bad day! What is the most effective fitness routine according to you? Isolate and supplement with cardio. Work out a different body part each

time you train in the gym and try to focus on resistance exercises with weights and machines. This will tone the muscles and also your body will keep burning fat even when you’re not training as it repairs. Also try to get in two or three sessions of running/biking/ rowing each week to keep your cardiovascular fitness up and help with fat burn. You need to do both to see real results. Your favourite foods to eat on a cheat day? I don’t think of a day as a cheat day. Allow yourself a little break from a rigorous diet whenever you feel like it but in moderation. A little bit of dark chocolate after dinner. One slice of pizza with a light salad, instead of two or three slices, a few french fries with your steak. If you don’t enjoy your food, you will resent training. Advice you’d give to people looking to attain a healthier lifestyle? Don’t be put off by the “fit” people in the gym. It can be daunting but everyone has to start somewhere and no one was born fit and muscular without hard work. Don’t follow an incredibly strict diet/routine that you cannot maintain and don’t focus on short term results. Whatever you do, make it regular and sustainable, so set realistic goals and build from there. What are some common fitness misconceptions? Weight training does not make you bulky! Carbs are not bad for you! They are a necessity and you should eat the right type at the right times. Less sleep does not make you a more impressive person! Your body recovers when it sleeps, so listen to your body and get rest and repair.

33

AUGUST 11-17 2019

How is your fitness mantra different from others? Keep it simple. Avoid white carbs, refined sugars and fried foods. Work your arms, back, legs on different days and try to run a little. Even better if you can tie it into your routine, maybe run to work, or stop at the gym on the way back from the school run. Finally get in your protein, we forget this too often. Aim for at least 1g for every kg of body weight, if you work hard your body needs it.
