I finally broke the 88kg ceiling !!!

 

I have been stuck on 88 kg for a long time now, at least for the past 6 months.

Each time I step on the weighing scale, I always come down disappointed as my body has refused to shed some extra kilos, despite my diet, exercise and discipline. I have not been to the gym in a while since I decided to make the best use of the summer sunshine.

So I had cause to go on a spiritual exercise for 3 days, fasting and praying and living on water and coconut water only, for a miracle which I have been looking up to God for. 

The result was amazing as I stepped on the scale on the 1st of March, you can’t believe it, and I clocked 84 KG !!!!!.

I am still basking in the euphoria of this new found weight and I am motivated to maintain it and probably hit 80 Kg by the end of the year.

It isn’t easy tho as I have been craving sweet things since I ended my fat. I hope this won’t be short lived

My Fruit Jar #HealthySnack

Choosing to live healthy involves a lot of creativity, in order to keep yourself inspired and keep your morale high.

I made this fruit jar snack ,as part of my food for the day and took it along to the office, so instead of being tempted to go for a chocolate bar , sausage or meat pie you can always keep this handy in your office or home fridge.

You can always fill as many jars as possible with different fruits you like and they don’t take a lot of time to make.

This also motivates others around you to embrace the healthy lifestyle.
