“Are You Into Modelling?”

Dear Nigerian Husband,

I’ve been working out almost consistently for the past three weeks, I can see the difference in my clothes here and there.
(I won’t give audience here to the neighbour who saw me about to leave the street this morning for my jog and decided it was appropriate to stop me and tell me how fat I’ve been getting these days)

This is an old image, I miss my apartment, my smoothie and being crazy alone!

I’ve enjoyed most of the workouts with the group at the state stadium. For the most part, the people are friendly, but some may need a bit of manners: they come late and still see it their right to stand right in front, edging out those who are early. I digress, that’s just me being petty.

But this vent it’s about any of them.

I left the group early today as I planned on getting home in time to prepare for a funeral. As I walked back home, I noticed a mini-van pull up in front of me. I mean, I didn’t think the driver was pulling over for me, so I walked by without saying a word. He called my attention, I stopped because thought he needed directions. ( I’m sorry for anyone who would follow my directions to anywhere in this Jos. You’ll end up in Bauchi State. LOL)

Anyway, this man went on a mini attack of questions.

Let’s Talk. 

I enjoy working out, I also enjoying eating healthy. Exercising more or less, is what takes up most of my free time during the week.

Today’s workout was about 45 minutes of aerobics, more than 30 minutes of skipping and then some abs. sorry the photo is blurry, my selfie stick game sucks.

So please, I hope you don’t see this as a cliche, but one of my resolutions, resolve or personal commitment this year is to work out some more. Secretly, at the back of my head, I’m working out for a summer body. It’s summer all year round in the Virgin Islands so I really should have a summer body all year round. But nah… There’s so much temptation out here.  ( there’s meatpie almost always in my freezer, I enjoy cooking jollof rice and I enjoy good wine)

But for real, this year I plan to be a bit more committed.

Last year I began having smoothie at least five to six times a week. Before I went off to vacation at Christmas, I also ant off the wagon.

 

This was dinner after my workout today. Blueberry Smoothie. made with banana, strawberry and almond milk.

Also, last year I was vegan and then vegetarian and then meat eating, then began, then vegetarian. I really was all over the place. In 2016, I hope I can be consistent between two – vegan and vegetarian. For health reasons, I have to.

But I’m back this year. I’ve not done so well for the first 19 days, but it’s never too late to recommit myself to achieving summer body for 2016.

It’s not going to be easy, but I’ll do my best. I will fail at it, but I sure will get back up and keep working for that summer body. I just might post about it every now and then.

Smile, live, laugh, love and fart out loud; life is incredibly too short.

Vou.
