Hi everyone! !!
Work caught up with me. And you would think now that I have blogger on my phone it would be easier!! Anyways hehe.
Today I just wanna brag on my God and how awesome and faithful he is!!!!
He astounds me everyday with his favour and mercy and I know am not worthy of it at all and yet He hasn't forgotten about me!
Fasting and praying works and the peace of God that comes with knowing you are pleasing God are just wow.
Trust in Him and he shall make your paths straight.
Have a blessed day

Oh I should also mention am overweight (wow it hurts to even write that).
…And yes am well aware of it… I could give you all kinds of excuses known to man as to why am overweight but the truth is, I ate way too much after I gave birth thinking that I had to “because I was breastfeeding” (my number 1 excuse).
The kilos were piling as I happily munched on everything in my sight (am feeding a human being I have a right to eat anything right? WRONG!!)
During my pregnancy I only gained 5 kilos (about 10lbs) but after that I ballooned so quickly I didn’t know what hit me! Right now am 20kilos (40lbs) overweight and I decided to lose it by reducing the quantities of my food, cut down on junk and soda and exercising for an hour and a half Mon-Fri. (I don’t really like diets because after the weight is off, you go back to your “normal” foods and you can gain the weight back quickly, so I keep eating what I normally eat (of course no junk) but I drastically cut my portions)
It has been only 2 weeks, I’ve lost a kilo (2 lbs) and it hasn’t been easy adjusting my diet, but I’ve been feeling great and think that I already look better.
But this post isn’t about my weight struggles… It’s about the people that surround me, the people in Society… yes it’s my fault I gained weight but it’s also my responsibility to lose it.
So why do people feel like it’s their duty to come over and ask me if I don’t think I should lose some weight?
Some of the questions and commentaries I get asked/told are:
- Don’t you think you should lose some weight?
- Chica you look too fat!
- Do you really want to eat that?
- What you eating is wrong
- Pizza? Why do you want pizza?(I eat it once a month only if that)
- You really should think about dieting
- What happened to you? You are so big?
- What you waiting for to lose weight?
And lots more along those lines….
I wonder if people know how the other side feels when they say that. I wonder if they bite their tongues afterwards or congratulate themselves for “telling it like it is” according to them?
I wonder if they ask themselves is this person trying to lose weight. Is she already exercising?
I am aware of my weight gain and I know I should lose weight and for that, I have been working so hard, but all I hear is people calling me FAT… am so discouraged but I know am not doing it for them, it’s for me and my own good.
I never retort to these comments because I don’t need to make them feel bad either whether they did it on purpose or not, but that they hurt, yes they do.
So if you are reading this and you’ve made an “innocent “ remark like this to me or someone else, I forgive you and I ask that next time
Anyways, done with my pity party… I didn’t go to the gym yesterday and today because of an abscess, but I’ll be back tomorrow, after all I have a self-imposed deadline, and that is to be yummy by the time I turn 30, so whatever that means by then (weight, centimetres lost, more fit, healthier) I will be happy by 30.
Have an awesome day y’all

So, during my pregnancy I only gained 5kgs (about 10lbs) but after that I made friends with bread, pasta, juices, fried, and anything edible!
We became best friends! So much so that they called me in the middle of the night and I gladly answered! You could find me in the middle of the night eating while breastfeeding!!
Well its one year later, and they decided that they love me so much they will lodge themselves in my hips and other areas, and I promise you my hips DON’T LIE!!!
So, I decided to Join Gym and start slowly to burn my friends away (sorry guys hehehe)
But now, am getting antsy with the slow weight loss so I decided to try the Eggplant with lemon water! I hear it burns calories fast, slims your belly (I need to see my feet again lol) and you lose weight!
So for this week I’ll try it, monitor my progress and next week I’ll let you know the results!
They told me I wash and cut into cubes one Eggplant put it in a litre of water, let it sleep overnight, then in the morning I add a squeezed lemon into the water.
Drink one cup just after I wake up before eating anything, and the rest I drink during the Day.
Am so excited I can’t wait to try it!!
I’ll let you know if I lose anything coz I really need to and I can’t do any drastic diets because am still breastfeeding so I’ll go slow.
Come back next week and find out how I did!
Lots of Love

Yesterday we were invited to a birthday party and the house we went to wasn’t cemented so the whole yard was sand…
My boy has.never.played.in.sand.
So, after the initial shyness, Bubba decided to venture to play with the other children, he was trotting along just fine when suddenly wham!
He fell on his bum! Being the helicopter mum
He just sat there picking up sand and seeing it falling through his fingers… then he just sat there with his hands in the sand with this content look on his face
I felt so happy and sad at the same time. Happy that my boy was so happy with playing with something so simple such as sand and yet being so joyfully delighted, and sad as to why it took me so long to just let him play in the sand and be a child.
Its simple things that make my heart full.
I Thank the Lord so much for giving us this pleasure.
When I take him to the beach ill attach some pictures.
Have a blessed day Y’all.

Being a wife and a mother is not easy! I am definitely an imperfect mom and I love this bible study for it!!! So with being a wife, mom and working full time I don’t have much time to relax and refill, but when I do I have a couple of minutes to myself I love to:
1.Daydream… I love dreaming about the places I wanna go (which often involve a beach or sitting under a tree)
Thank you for stopping by and do leave your link so I can read your post too!!
Ps. These are Not me in the Pictures Neither are they my picutres

Today I wanna talk technology! More specifically phones!! Hehehe I am a phone junkie; I love androids, iPhone whatever shiny phone I can find (can you notice I don’t know much I just like shiny? Hahaha)
I’ve had the iPhone 3 g, iPhone 3Gs, my current is a Nokia Lumia 720 (not really current since it fell into the toilet and now the screen won’t show), actually my current is an Alcatel old tiny phone which my boy loves to throw in the floor so it can break to pieces which he then loves to put back lol. Anyways now I want a new phone and am undecided between the Samsung Galaxy 5 and the Sony Xperia Z2! They are both awesome but too big!
But I held the Galaxy today and it ain’t too shabby!!! But am still undecided. All sites I go to they say it’s almost the same thing but the Galaxy always wins by a tiny margin!!! But I like the Xperia because it has more colour variety (see my priority here? Hahahah) Am a person that’s always stuck to her phone, playing games, Facebook, internet, I basically like to live out of my phone. So which one do you guys think is better? Have a great day!
