When life throws you a lemon…

      So for some days I have not blogged about my fitness or what I eat even though my weight loss journey hasn’t fully started again until after my 6 weeks postpartum. You see, it’s not been easy on me these past few days, having to handle a baby and so much going on in the background. In the beginning, it was kinda easy as my baby was always satisfied whenever she breastfeeds but these days she seems to feed more hours, thus not giving me time to do anything. And when she sleeps I drop her on the bed, she wakes up in like 10 mins. It has been difficult especially when you are living alone. You have to do everything with your baby on your hands. So I decided to take it slow atleast for now, I try to get some sleep while she sleeps and I try as much as possible to have my meals 70% clean eating and I still drink a gallon of water plus a day. The exercise will have to wait till I am settled, as am trying to make the best of my current situation. Oh! And the cold weather ...

The walking Apology

  Use Your Words To Create A Better Life   When I realised I was pregnant, alot of thoughts came running through my mind A part of me was glad that finally , i get to nibble on cakes and ice cream without being judged Because I had an excuse, Big excuse! Like I have always had all my life   Excuses are well embedded in my brain Like tapes running through my head Those voices that tell you that you are not good enough Because those people keep starring at you while you walk Some shaking their head and their kids honestly pointing at you and calling you “the fat lady”   Life isn’t easy neither is it carefree Everything is hard and difficult Nothing is spontaneous So you have to manage life You have to manage everything Even the amount of weight you add while pregnant so that you don’t have to start from the scratch again   So that you don’t have to need any help buckling your sandals So that you don’t have to snore gravely at night and being at risk to diabetics and heart related diseases So that you don’t have to worry about ...

Breathe! and Push!!!

    All of me thought baby was coming, so i hurriedly got to the hospital and straight to the 5th floor which is labor and delivery. They went ahead to run test on me and check the baby’s heartbeat and all then I was told my water did not break. I felt so sad leaving the hospital I really thought baby was really coming that day. Well, I had the same incident twice again, now looking back, I guess i was just too anxious to have this baby and I really wished baby came normal without being induced again, to me that will mean my hard work has totally paid off. But it doesn’t work that way… baby did not come till the date of my induction.   I can remember that, I woke up by 6am, had my bathe and prayed with my husband then went to the hospital, The induction did not start till 9am, I was not scared of being induced as I have been  induced twice before so it was pretty normal to me. So they started by giving two small tablets (drug) which I was to place under my gum at both sides. The doctors ...

Everything you knew about me …. Is about to change!

    Hello Friends! Its been a while I took a break from blogging and I can honestly say that I missed you all. I feel as if I have been a traveller who travelled the same route but in a different experience.   It was a beautiful monday morning after the Lucozade 10km walk, I felt like I wasnt myself, I was so tired and hungry of things that I thought i had overcame, this brought fear into my mind and the only thing I could think of was, “am I pregnant?” Well, I hurriedly left the office to a pharmacy to buy the self pregnancy test strips, Went back to work and peed on the stick in the office toilet as I was too anxious and couldn’t wait to go home. Alas! my fear was confirmed. I was so scared, a bit annoyed with myself cos I really wanted to atleast get to a 100kg before getting pregnant … if need be. All I could just mutter was “God, hope its a girl cos you know I want a baby girl so this one must be a girl” I called my husband right away and he asked that ...
