2019 : Happy New Year!

Whoop whoop!

Eating Healthy Vs Nigerian Food

“Na something go kill person last last” is probably what you hear when you speak to people about nutrition and eating clean. Well that is true, something must kill a man but that something shouldn’t be you.

“But I’m not sick now”, no you might not be sick yet but eating healthy provides your body with enough anti bodies to defend our bodies against illness besides the glowing skin, mental alertness and physical strength and endurance.

“So you want us to start eating grass like goats “

Eating grass isn’t such a bad thing that’s why we are here.

A Plant based diet is the solution to the ultimate healthy lifestyle but as the Africans we are , Dear God please deliver us from Asun and goat meat.

For those of us that can not totally eradicate animal based protein completely, let’s talk portion control!

Technically, the body takes 24hrs to break down food consumed, imagine having breakfast lunch and dinner consistently for a week, imagine the backlog of work we are asking our bodies to perform. (If your Boss tasked you that hard, You would definitely need a day or two off!😋😋)

Meaning our bodies don’t require food as much as we think and definitely not in the quantities some of us consume.

Half the time, sickness are as a result of lack of a nutrient in the body system

Like one of my favorite life coaches would say “Treat your body like a garden where life grows not like a morgue where dead animals are dumped “. Cheee!

2018: The Year Thus Far

Oftentimes, we make new rules, regulations and resolutions at the start of the year.

we draft goals we hope to attain before a certain timeline, well how is that going for you?! 🙂

How many items have you ticked off, not to worry if its not all of it, it happens to the best of us.

Its almost the fourth quarter and another year is ending and many of us are gathering up our willpower for a brand new set of New Year’s resolutions. But have we really learned from our past experiences?

A large number, if not the majority, of previous resolutions were probably broken in weeks, days, or even hours.

So, how to make this time round more successful? Well it’s not as hard as you might think — there are some really easy ways to set yourself on the path to success, and the first is:

1. Keep your resolutions simple.

Sometimes we often get over our heads with our dreams and lifestyle, and this is simply a short route to disappointment. It may be understandable at this time of year, as much as we would love to, these things can’t all be achieved at once. The best approach is to focus clearly on one or two of your most important goals.

2. Be realistic.

Don’t aim too high and ignore reality – consider your previous experience with resolutions. What led to failure then? It may be that you resolved to lose too much weight or save an unrealistic amount of money. Remember, there will always be more opportunities to start on the next phase, so set realistic goals. Or if you don’t want to hold back, set clear short-term goals on your way to a big achievement. Which leads to tip number four.

3. Create a Step-by-step approach.

Break goals down to manageable chunks. This is perhaps the most essential ingredient for success, as the more planning you do now, the more likely you are to get there in the end. The planning process is when you build up that all-important willpower which you will undoubtedly need to fall back on along the way. Set clear, realistic goals such as losing 5 pounds, saving $30 a month, or going for a run once a week. Decide exactly how you will make this happen.

5. Set a Time Frame / Deadline.

In fact, the deadline is vital for motivation. It is your barometer for success, the way you assess your short-term progress towards the ultimate long-term goal. Buy a calendar or diary so you can plan your actions for the coming weeks or months, and decide when and how often to evaluate.

6. Take notes.

Having made a note of your time-frame, you will have a physical reminder of what you’re aiming for. Now go further and write down the details of your resolutions in a notebook, remembering to add your motivations. You could keep a scrapbook for this purpose, and fill it with photos of your slimmer self, pictures of sporting or hobby equipment you are saving for, or even a shocking credit card statement to spur you into action! If your resolution will directly benefit your partner, children, colleagues or friends then add their photos too – anything to remind you of your initial motivation.

7. Treat yourself.

When making your plan, a vital feature should be the rewards and treats you will give yourself at those all-important milestones. But be warned, don’t fall into the trap of putting your goal in danger – it’s too easy for a dieter to say “I’ve been so good, I deserve a few candy bars”, or a saver to throw caution to the wind with a new purchase. One slip, and it could all be over.

8. Receive support.

It is at such times, when you’ve temporarily fallen off the wagon, that your support network is crucial. Carefully choose those people around you who have shown themselves to be trustworthy, supportive friends and explain your plans. Let them know of ways they can help when the going gets tough, and if they’re truly caring they’ll know the right things to say during the hard times.

9. Don’t give up!

Do bear in mind that a slip-up is almost inevitable at some point, and you must not let this become an excuse to give up. When it happens, you will need to draw on your reserves of self-belief and strength, so build these qualities as often as you can. Really feel proud of your past achievements and don’t become critical of yourself. People with higher self-esteem and confidence are in a much better position to succeed, so immediately forgive yourself and say “I’m starting again now!”

10. Put yourself in charge.

These achievements are under your control – other people can advise and support you but it’s your actions which need to change to see the results you want. Having a strong sense of control over your life is necessary to stick with your plans. Those who blame everyone and everything apart from themselves will not have the resources needed to change. Yes, it’s scary to take responsibility for your future, but surely it’s better than the alternative?

Now you’ve read these tips, you are in a great position to consider the best ways to improve your life.. Your happiness is worth the time and effort, so get started, and good luck! 🙂
