Still putting in my best

  Dear readers,   Please am here oh! Am still accountable just that am so so so so busy kai! So all I do is to post on my instagram page @nellyagbogu (please follow for updates) and just rest. Please bear with me as it will be like this next week.   Here is my workout today   My #PT keeps pushing me to do more. Most of the time I have realised that I can do more but am just too scared to #push that extra inch but my #PT has taught me to believe in my inner strength and keep pushing because am stronger than I was yesterday, it’s alot of #hardwork but hey! Nothing comes easy. I almost shade a tear today but what I refused to do is to #quit #itwillendinpraise #exercise #health #absexercise #postpatrum #fitnessrocks #fightobesity #fitnaija #fitness #fitfam #fitnigeria #follow #weightlossstory #weights #weightlossjourney #weightloss #keepgoing #giveit100 A video posted by Nelly Agbogu (@nellyagbogu) on Nov 11, 2014 at 6:01am PST

Cheat Trick!

Today, like some days, I just didn’t feel like working out at all But I knew i needed to show up because am doing it for me I just thought of everything Baroness (my PT) will do to me and that really made me feel so bad the more. I got to the gym and took like forever to get dressed. But I kept asking myself who am I deceiving? I will still have to go face that “iron lady” and get this work done anyways.   Right from day one i have already made up my mind to attempt all the workouts she brings my way Some days am so angry (but i done show it) with the way she is pushing me and all i can say in my mind is “One day I will show her, she feels she can do it all, I can too can do it” But God knows her workouts are deadly, lol I tried to use some cheat tricks but this lady keeps catching me So i gave up and took all the pain When I get home, i will feel much better yes but Mehn body will ache   I guess my body ...

Weigh in day!

So you remember that I told you all that  I have a bbm group (currently full) and we all paid 1k each for our biggest loser challenge where the winner with the highest percentage of weight loss takes it all and it involves us weighing every two weeks for till December end. Phew! Truth is I know I won’t win because breastfeeding can really mess up plans. Some days I need eat more to up my breastmilk flow but am glad that the weight is falling off. Not everyone will see the scale move in the other direction while breastfeeding so I count myself lucky. Yesterday was my colleague’so send fourth so I planned ahead of it by eating small portion all through the week and ate nothing in the morning of the send forth and yes I enjoyed myself But I had to pay for it like a boss I worked my assignment off this morning with strength training as well as Zumba and but over 1000 calories All done at the comfort of my home.

How to lose weight for dummies

  Losing weight on the scale and less frustrating if you understand how its done. If you are like me, you will feel frustrated when you do so much work yet its doesn’t show up on the scale.
