Meera Syals secret exercise regime - boxing!October 12th, 2008 - 12:59 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 12 (ANI): British comedian Meera Syal has revealed that she has taken up boxing to lose the baby weight she has put on.
Syal, who has never been a fitness freak, was asked on the new BBC series about her secret weight-loss weapon after her babys birth at the age of 45.
I went to a personal trainer, the Mirror quoted her as saying.
I am not obsessive. I eat healthily and try to have most of my food before 6pm.
I am not one of those people who say I have got to be a size 10, two months after the birth. I get very annoyed when I see that in magazines and you are sat at home with leaky breasts and cellulite. You dont want to see Angelina Jolie in size 10 jeans, you really dont.
My trainer is an ex-boxer and he suggested it one day and I absolutely love it. Its frightening how much aggression you have and I love hitting things.
I could never be in a fight and I hate the thought of hitting someone or being hit. But it is a beautiful sport. I have been learning the different punches.
You feel very peaceful afterwards because youve used a lot of aggression, she added.
When asked about her hubby Sanjeev Bhaskars reaction to her new fitness regime, she revealed that he had accepted it with good grace.
He holds his hands up so I can punch them and acts tough, she said laughingly.
But Im sure he goes round the corner after and goes ouch. He wont show me out of pride, she added. (ANI)
