The confusing result, when a baby doesn’t receive antenatal care in the worm.

Pregnancy health

Answers to this question will rely on the condition of the baby, the habits of the mother, but mostly the intention of MOTHER NATURE. This simply means  that some babies were made strong, while some others weren’t, for no reason.

We have heard of mothers who didn’t know they were pregnant until the delivery day came, they felt excruciating pain and went straight into labour thinking they were having medical issue,only for them to be told that they have  gone into active labour.

Most people will swear that it is an impossible story for a person not to know that they were pregnant, But I will always look at them with a smirk smile, and say. “This world is too deep, and we will never know it all.”

This is because Some mothers eat everything they want, dust,chalk,sand, not having any form of care during their pregnancy, drinking liquor with high percentage of alcohol in them, smoke everything smokable, mostly because they didn’t know they were pregnant, because they saw their period (spotting ) all through the nine months. *Even though some people intentionally drink when they know they are pregnant.*

This same category of people like I said earlier,  will only realise they are pregnant when they have been rushed to the emergency world, or when they have surprisingly had their babies in the toilet, bathtub, car,bush,bedroom any unusual place you can think of, and in a matter of just minutes, they have their babies and you realise that the babies are fill term, healthy, and having no health issues whatsoever.

Some other women will eat  right, workout, have regular checkups, abstain form drinking and smoking, monitor their baby for the entire nine months with all kinds of doctors and devices, only for them to go into labour that will last for as long as 12 hours or more, and then have a baby who requires medical attention..

People have even come up with the notion that exposing the unborn baby to excessive rays from hospital machines may have led to the health issue that babies these days are born with, and suffer from. Some health  issues we have these days, even with the availability of our modern day technologies, were never there in the olden days.

Pregnancy health
Pregnancy health

In those days, had babies everywhere,   including while working on the farm. while they worked, they step aside,have their baby, come back and continue with their farming afterwards. So please don’t put all your instinct in the hands of a doctor whose medical journey, IQ, and experience you cant trace. Meaning that you don’t know how good a doctor any one is.

So please take care of you and the baby, the best way possible, and don’t be carefree with the life you are creating in you.

From my experience, I don’t not think Antenatal guarantees an unborn baby’s health status.

The West African belief about Pregnancy and Alcohol.

Palmwine consumption during pregnancy

For as long as we can remember, we have hear of the prohibited Rule for the pregnant women of the western world. Many times it even had back ups from the doctors. Women staying away from alcohol, has become a thing the entire public of the western world now take into their hands to make  sure that pregnant woman don’t come fifty feet to the tempting beautiful round cork of a beer bottle, talk more of Rum, whisky and vodka, including brandy.

Palmwine consumption during pregnancy

We will like to think that the percentage of alcohol in these drinks may have been the reason for the strict law passed on expectant  women. In Africa, alcohol is a thing you take out time to go have which would sometimes come off as rebellious or even wild to the very next eye witnessing your level of alcohol in take. But over the years, with series of indigenous beer company opening up in Nigeria and Africa, it is becoming a normal thing to have beer and alcohol in gatherings, events, parties and even burials right now in Nigeria. The percentage of alcohol in beer is definitely not as high as in the other alcoholic drinks, and in every sense of it, all other alcoholic drinks apart from the beer, are considered a foreign entity in the African system.Drinks like Guinness, Orijin, e.t.c.  which were made with locally sourced ingredients, have been whole heartedly accepted by the Nigerian society.

Palmwine consumption during pregnancy

This is clearly proven in the day to day behaviors of Nigerian beer consumers routine. On an everyday after work chill, Nigerians go for beer as a normal drink of theirs, but when a special occasion present itself in the form of a birthday party, a wedding, gatherings of any sort, even at clubs, they always make it a very important occasion when they pop champagne and wine, only done by the adults. Who have always been warned to drink responsibly.

While in the western world, right from an early age, kids see their parents drink wine at the dinner table, lunch time, and Evey other gathering.  These kids are constantly told that they have to be of a certain age, to ever get to told the adults in sharing a bottle of wine.

Nothing urges the interest of humans than prohibition. When you tell someone that they can’t do something, you will definitely sit back and watch them do everything in her power to do that you have talked about. For this reason, the kids in the western world are always trying to consume every drop of alcohol they can lay their hands on, before ever attaining the legal age of alcohol consumption (21 years), Which was too dangerous for them to handle, thereby sending them into the Abuse of it all, and even have them needing to go to an institution to get back to their normal self before they ever tasted alcohol for the first time. But this is even harder than they had ever imagined.

                           THE AFRICAN PREGNANCY AND ALCOHOL BELIEF.

Africans have always considered their own type of alcohol the healthiest. Before the whites came all the way to our innocent land with the ‘helping hands’ idea, Africans have always considered themselves sufficient. They ate what then grew, they  governed themselves, and even provided their very own civilization.

Before the brewed, and bottled, filtered, and sieved wine we see today, there had always been PALM WINE.  The presence of palm wine dates back all the way to BC, when palmwine tappers in the olden days considered themselves one of the most  successful tradersof their times. They practically were the Kardashians of their time. They were the  brewery of the village, community, state, and Country of their time. They sold Palm wine to everyone, marrying the best maidens in the village.

Alcohol being so naturally gotten from Palm trees were very healthy for every one who consumed it.  it was drunk by the entire village. The pregnant and non pregnant mothers, the men, and the children all had alcohol, and it never had any side effect.

The nutritional value of palmwine can never be over emphasized. When wives did good in the sight of their husbands in the olden days,  they were gifted freshly tapped Palm wine from the best tapper in town, and this included the pregnant women. So when Africans grew up with the notion that our Palm wine is vital for every living human as well as the unborn babies. They weren’t wrong, untill the white came with their own chemical containing alcohol, that is obviously harmful to the humans, and even more harmful to the unborn babies. So while the whites say alcohol is bad for a foetus, based on the kind of alcohol they consumed, and then urban Nigerian equally says that same thing , we belief them. But when the rural (villagers) say that the Alcohol they consume there, is healthy for the expectant mother, then we should belief them. Because they are right, based on their own type of alcohol.

From my explanation, it is Now clear that alcohol is good for the pregnant women in the village African setting, only when it is the typical alcohol of the Nigerian people. I really love the primitively days, and I love the idea it carried.

I beg to say that even with all the doctors report, babies these days are still faced with higher challenges that are hard to fathom, a lot higher than when they drank alcohol.

Here is a substitute for the sugary Nigerian drinks for school kids.

Healthy Zobo drinks for kids.

I am not sure why Nigerian  parents give out huge sum of  money to their kids in primary schools for lunch. They will always have their reasons, but I am not in support of that.

Healthy Zobo drinks for kids.
Healthy Zobo drinks for kids.

 

I belief that at that age, kids shouldn’t be exposed to money, talk more of huge sums like N500 for lunch in one day. What exactly do you think your child will eat for lunch in a day, that will cost him/her N500? You don’t start things like this, and after the child has gotten use to it,later on in life, you wake up and decide to stop. When I was in primary school, Lunch were made for us from homes. Mothers were actually doing their career and family duties. Giving out money required  very special occasions, and the amount never got up to N500.

Healthy Zobo drinks for kids.
Healthy Zobo drinks for kids.

Exposing your child to money at such a tender age, takes away their innocence as kids. Are you doing it because someone you are trying to be like, is doing it. Are you doing it to show that you have a wealthy family, there by sending out the wrong messages to the parents of your kids friends? Trying to create a gap between you and  the parents who can’t afford handing their kids N500 every day as lunch money.

You see kids buying expensive things.  when asked, they say it is from their savings. When a 5 year old tells you that he/she has saved up N10000 from his lunch money in a month, then  it immediately becomes clear that something is wrong with that picture.

Parents today belief that all they need to do it to give birth. And afterwards, have the school and community train the child on their behalf. They are now the so called ‘working moms of our generation’, that they think what their kids lack in motherly attention, they can make up for, with huge sums of money to buy whatever they want.

When I was undergoing my National youth service Corp(NYSC), I was attached to a primary school where I thought 18 subjects to kids. I got to see kids who just got weaned, start school. I became a morning soothing mother to some of the babies. For their parents to escape peacefully, they hand the kid to the Corper (me), before running away.

@saziz_kununaya tiger nut juice
@saziz_kununaya tiger nut juice

The moment these kids take their first shaky step, *needing their teachers to carry them almost all day,* they get enrolled in school.  These kids are still  very much attached to their moms, that when ever they are about to be dropped off in school, they literally cry so much, that it lasts so long even after assembly is over.

The parents hand a thousand Naira note to kids who have not even started saying a word of speech yet, kids who stick money into  their mouth, their lunch boxes have food and all kinds of sugary drinks in them. These kids stay from 7am- 4pm all day. When these kids cry, A sugary  drink is plugged into their mouth, sending them to immediate  silence.

All kinds of sugary and unhealthy drinks are flooding the shops and kiosks that sell kids lunch. My Boss once tasted one of these juices that came in a cute bottle shaped nylon, and it was incredibly sugary, that my headmistress started regulating the way the school kids bought it.

She sometimes made them drink water after break, just to flush it off their systems, just in case they had gone behind her back to purchase it.

Before  these kids get to the age of 8, they become clearly obsessed with sugary junks. Nigerian kids are becoming so over weight these days, that I wonder who their pediatrist are. It is highly alarming and disturbing to see that wealthy kids  are so fat, while the kids of the others are so thin. Child obesity has taken over the Nigerian society, but parents see it as a good sign that their kids are living a wealthy life.

@saziz_kununaya tiger nut juice
@saziz_kununaya tiger nut juice

Dear Nigerian parents, they  are not your specimen. You are damaging these kids, stretching their skin at such a tender age. Making up for your absence with extremely sugary foods, and drinks, is not what a mother and father should do to their kids. While you are away at work, they miss you  as a human, not the badly sweetened things you buy them.

SUBSTITUTES..

you can substitute  the soda, and very sugary drinks your kids take on a daily basis with healthier drinks like our locally made:

. Zobo, Kunu, and soya beans milk, tiger but juice with date palm and coconut.

These drinks all have their recipes flooding the Internet. So recipes for making them, can never be a problem to you Dear Parenst and guardian. You put in the amount of sugar you deem fit, and know thAt you trust the ingredients you are exposing your children to. Don’t trust all that company ingredients.

The unhealthy and extremely sugary foods, unhygienic street food, and un supervised food that these kids consume daily, can be changed. You  make them chin-chin, puff puff, amongst many other snacks, which now one again on are very much aware of the individual ingredients you have used. These things have their recipes flooding the entire internet, waiting  for you to try your hands on them. These may look like I am talking only to the Nigerian Parents, but it is not true. Other countries can out all of thes by themselves as well.

Involvie your kids in physical exercise and sop encouraging an unhealthy life by saying “this was how I was as a child, she  will lose the weight while growing up”. You clearly don’t excercise for you to have said that to a growing child. Don’t dampen their confidence by having their mates call the, fat all the time.

I remeber having a girl in my class back then, who was always coming to report on person or the other who called her fat. These kids might not tell you envy thing, but teachers see everything. So please, don’t leave every training for the teacher who is only doing the best she can, while being underpaid for the excessive work he/she does. Do you part Dear parents and guardians. Stop calling the police when teachers discipline your kids. We have been spat ding the rod and spoiling the child in this country for some decades now. The old leaders won’t act appropriate, while the young are not being brought up properly.

Stop feeding junk to your innocent kids who rely on you, to make right decision on their behalf, before they become independent.  Everyone can lose weight no Matter who you are. Stop saying the kids look like you because your parents made their own mistake of not helping you lose your weight as a child.

Dear Nigerian parents, help these kids.

Lagos State deploys over 900,000 electronically tracked waste bins.

Electronic trash truck in Lagos

According to Vanguard news,  Visionscape Group has taken delivery of a fresh batch of environment sanitation trucks to Lagos state, to be launch in the new year.

Driven from the port to one of their maintenance deport were, Compactors, trash trucks, trailer heads and other utility vehicles.

The Lagos State Government plans to deploy over 900,000 electronically tracked waste bins and 600 brand new compactors among other facilities to manage the over 10,000 metric tons of waste generated in the state daily.

I am honestly love the idea of the Lagos state government being clearly concerned with the waste situation of the state, that he actually makes a move towards improving it.

Electronic trash truck in Lagos
Electronic trash truck in Lagos

Even though our waste management is a big problem,  buying new things on the other hand, has never a problem in Nigeria. We as a Nation, are obsessed with importation and expensive purchases. But my in dividing concern has always been the maintenance culture of our leaders.

If this imported waste bin, and compactors get worn out and stop working in future, what then? Will the government have a maintenance system to service and repair these products when they develop faults? Or will they get another budget to just buy a brand new batch of the same thing, while the old ones sit by the road and rust in neglect, then become a bigger problem to the society than the dirt itself.

Electronic trash truck in Lagos
Electronic trash truck in Lagos

I really am concerned with ‘Maintenance‘ because that was my concern when we had these really new batch of eye candy BRTs, they were deliciously good looking, until they started to wear out, having broken parts, misused,  and no plans were made to fix them back up. They practically went from BRT to danfo buses in a matter of half a decade. Any body can wake up and  request for Government money to buy a new batch of public common goods. But when these goods need a little fixing and repainting, and rehabilitation, what happens then? They turn a deaf ear, and repeat the process of buying new ones all over again.

Electronic trash truck in Lagos
Electronic trash truck in Lagos

This has always been my problem and from the look of things, it hadn’t been fixed. Because everyday, I see things that make me wonder if this habit is only for COMMON GOODS. 

Is this the way we manage out homes? Things go bad and we turn a blind eye to it, and replace it with a brand new one immediately? This needs to stop. Every day, we read about Nigeria borrowing money from foreign countries to fix one thing or the other, and then the money gets stolen by politician elected to protect it ,  no one is caught or held responsible, because they have many people involved in sharing the money, no maintenance culture, no follow ups.

Dear Lagos State Government, we need these things repaired and painted when the time comes, instead of replacing them.

This should be a job for Peter Obi.

What you didn’t know about being a Vegetarian in Nigeria.

Vegetarians in Nigeria

So guys, happy Christmas Eve yehhhhhhhh. It is one day to Christmas and we are incredibly grateful for life. 💃🏾💃🏾So with that said, I wish to say thank you to you all, who are at the prime of  your holidays and have decided to spend some of it on my blog. Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate that. And please,don’t forget to subscribe to ObyOrijiblog right there 👈🏽. Thank you

Vegetarians in Nigeria
Vegetarians in Nigeria

So, back to the main issue. Many have been  fast to conclude that “it is Impossible to be a vegetarian in Nigeria”, without carrying out any research. Reasons being that’s no one can actually over look the delicious cuisine in our dear Country, and go right ahead to eat the food meant for goats. (In Africa, vegetables are always assumed to be meant for goats) .   FUNNY!!!!

With majority of our food being starchy and Carbohydrate, Nigerians are known to crave for their own local foods so much that even when they are living in a foreign land, they can’t live without them.

We have the famous local Nigerian meals that most Nigerian kids grew up eating, that they can’t  have anything  other than  what they Have known all their lives. These are known as the specialist type of humans, who love to remain in their comfort zone, never ready to take risk or try new things, and must have a routine to follow in live. And from research, these type of people, are known to easily go into extinction. Lol “this hypothesis, is actually meant for animals, and not humans” 🤓😝

Vegetarians in Nigeria
Vegetarians in Nigeria

Some other people sing it like a song to whoever cares to listen, that in as much as they are obsessed with their Nigerian foods, they are equally open minded to new foods and new ideas even, even if they have to later on, go back to eat their Nigerian meal.

I have a sister who travel the world, but whole there, She is compelled to  go in search of a Nigerian restaurant in all of theses big cities of the world, just to get an expensive Eba and Egusi soup. When ever she converts the money she just paid for a plate of Eba, to that of our Nigerian currency, it will surprise you to know that you would have been able to throw a birthday party for a One year old birthday party in the 90s. Not today parents though, because parents today, are always extra with birthday parties for their kids when they turn one.

We have asked a hand full of our fellow Nigerians even those who are mixed, what their favorite meal is.  And most of them say they cannot go a week without  having Eba or any other  kind of swallow in their system. (Swallow = edible mound balls made with Nigerian food)

This is to show that the fact that Nigerians are obsessed with their own food can never be over emphasized. For this reason, it is always hard mostly impossible, to see a Nigerian who is a vegetarian.  It is more common among those  who have lived or still live abroad in the diaspora, or undergoing a weight loss journey.

Vegetarians in Nigeria
Vegetarians in Nigeria

Now, for the small percent of people who are vegetarians in Nigeria, this is what you should know about your food.

The first thing to know Is that vegetables in Nigeria, are actually surprisingly  affordable in Nigeria. They are sold as low as N50 Naira in batches, and  N50 is not even as much as a dollar. It is 10% or less of a dollar ($1=N362), which means that you can get N50 worth of lettuce, Ugu, carrot, and many others from your Nigerian markets, to get your desired meal. I am not even conversant with the dishes of a vegetarian. But I very well know that Vegetables  are grown in large quantity here in Nigeria, precisely Jos Plateau state.  This is the reason why they are relatively affordable in Nigeria. Even though  other foods are a lot cheaper for people who are not vegetarians, which is the  reason why they just stick to the non- vegetarian  life style, they are sure of.

But this is to show that you can be a vegetarian in Nigeria. So please don’t conclude other wise.

ObyOrijifitnessblogmas: Maintaining a flat belly this Christmas season

Christmas

We all are super excited to have this years Christmas arrive. Words can sparsely explain the excitement filled in the hearts of the adults and children of the world. Some being so naughty, and others pretending to be nice while being intensely mean. I for one will be interested in the naughty peopl if I am made Santa for a day.  *just saying*

Christmss in Nigeria is known for one thing. If we are being sincere, it is  Food, food and food. And for every  one who has been good enough to maintain an Ok body through out the year, Christmas is always a time of trials and  temptation. You have relatives and family members who you haven’t seen in a while, friends and siblings who have the choicest gist for you concerning people you all know. In the midst of all these, you are completely going to let down your guard, and eat things that you are not suppose to, because everything will look incredible delicious and attractive to you when you are happy to be in the midst of those you love. So how do we help our selves in this trial periods of Christmas.

Helping the belly

For one, we will try not  eat all day and all night just because there is good every where.

. When in the midst of people who will make you forget your weight consciousness, always remember that heavy food consumption ends with the day. Which means that it ends when the day ends. When night falls, do not let any heavy food into you mouth. Go for liquids, fruits, and light snacks, tea and bread.

.My Nigerian compatriot should specifically be mindfully with the constant intake of Eba and delicious  Nigerian soups.

. Do not completely neglect your workout routine. Instead of letting family members distract you, you should see them as an encouraging factor. They should join you in your workout, not stopping you from doing the right thing. But remember,  Simple ones first. Exercise to start with, are the easy one though.

Simple belly workouts

First step: Lay on your back, stretch out your legs and have your Hands by your side.

Lift your pair of legs (both legs) from the floor half way up, forming an angle with your upper body, forming a capital letter L. And take them back to the ground together immediately.

Lift Both legs and drop them  back down 20 times, which means counting up and down as one, for 20 times. Touching your toes as the come up to your face. The left hand will touch the right leg’s toes when it comes up, while the right hand will touch the left toe’s when it comes up.

Do five batches of  20 lifts (up and down = 1 count), making it 100 counts.

20 up and down =1 batch

100 up and down= 5 batches

REMEMBER, Do it 5 times, which is 5 batches

This is called the Touch your toes move, and it is very efficient in flattening your tummy. This is because it flexes your belly muscle, keeping them active, when they grind the fat away in the process. So this is simple and efficient. If you are determined enough, you can do even more than hundred counts, and probably do it morning and night.

Invite your mother, daughter, sister, friend, cousins, and so on, to come join you for some moral support. You might even make a bet just to keep their interest on it. Place a bet to get their attention. Feel free to tell me how it went, cos I will appreciate some pictures And stories.

The reason why everyone should be a Cat person.

Cat or dog person
Cat or dog person
Cat or dog person

The world is full of three types of people. The cat lovers, the dog lovers, and the ones who love these  animals from afar. Now  I am not sure if I am in the third Or second category. This is because I love  to watch, read and listen to  videos and stories of well trained dogs, but never make it to having one. Not even one. They have been known to exhibit some characteristics like a human when they have been adopted into a family  they have come to love. Dogs keep humans occupied amongst all other, maybe not as much as the cats.  Like a good company they even sometimes communicate with man in their own perculiar  way.

But Over the years, having a dog has  meant more work for the mothers in a home. They dread scooping up poop, walking the dogs, taking them to the vet, grooming them, bathing them,teaching them toys not to play with, as well as teaching them to pee and poop outside.

This is the reason why most mothers are not immediately thrilled to say yes to the dog acquiring idea when the kids and the husband get excited to share their thoughts with them. When the Kids are super excited to have a different species come live with them, they clearly forget that they go to school for the whole day,  and sleep easily almost the whole night. when they are doing any of these two,  mummy is left with the complete responsibility of giving care to the dog, and het kids.

If my opinion Is asked, I will say we all should simply becoming Cat people. This is because cats have been known to take absolute care of themselves. They groom themselves,  take care of the pooping game,which is done in private,  and while still render the job of companionship, cuddling, and fur love to its owners.

While dogs simply wait to be taken out to poop, cats locate their litter box and do their business.

While dogs are considered the right pet for manly men and cats are considered the ideal pets for girls, but with the rise of girl power and 21st century,  everyone can now have whatever pet they deem fit for them.

While dogs need to be walked, cats can escape and just go running their business forever. Even though they are not known to be the most loyal pets because I have had a long list of pet cats who left and ran away while searching for mates, Freedom, and to quench their curiosity.

In  as much as I love cats, that is the part I can’t even reconcile with. The fact that they are always running away for no reason, there breaking the heart of their owners.

The problem of ‘Nigerian churches and no free school’ has broken my heart for a long time.

We plan anyway

So I just heard a mind blowing story about he unbelievable, humongous, outrageous, incredibly high amount of dollars and Nairas creeping into the churches of Nigeria. I can’t even believe that with all these money mentioned, that these churches still have poor Members in them, like intensely poor members.  This is even harder for me to think that they don’t have free schools, homes for their members yet.  I tried to find the name of a free school for church that could be owned by these expensive churches. I have not been able to do that even uptill,.   This led to me sitting and reminiscing the life of the initial missionaries who brought the gospel to Africa. These guys had free schools for converts, which you can’t find now, free lunch for children  at school, and didn’t even have half as much charity as we have today. Charity has been funding churches, generous individuals of the society have been sponsoring the church, and wealthy members of theses churches including the poor ones who have been compelled just to have s good sense of belonging. But the rich have so far, been kind enough to donate huge sums of money to the church at every time the pastor asks.

We Will at least cut down on the poking done to churches if they can at least have free schools for members . Not the society this time around, just the children of members who clearly are struggle through live. I honestly would love to have this come to pass just for the poor I our midst who are either too shy to say, or too deep in the make believe world to say they need help. Because of the intense poverty eating deep into members of Christian-doom, I will really love for them to be at least considered.

Please don’t tell  your members that whenever they are going through a rough time, that they are being manipulated by the devil. That is a bid clear path to insincerity. We are all humans, which means that we will have trials and tribulations from life.

Statements like these have made it hard, and even stopped Christians who are going hard times, to confined in churches, which thereby stops them from being helped. If we were encouraged enough to run to the church when ever we are going  through a bad era of life like the pioneering churches did, then we won’t have this high number of poverty stricken people in the church, who are resolving to a life crime instead. Robbery, rituals, amongst others.

It is clear that most of these churches have a higher chances at closing down, than having a free school built for its suffering members. We don’t practice what we preach in this part of the world. we find it very easy to just talk from  now till tomorrow, telling people what they already know, instead of going to places  the gospel has not gotten to yet, who need the money for basic things of life like water, food, clothes, more than we need them for cars, aircrafts, and vacation. So, since we can’t have a free school,  How about we just drastically cut down the fees that these schools charge church members of the Society. What they charge Christians, and Jesus lovers of this world. Gullible members should please  get a grip and pay direct school fees to the needy, and the less previledge of our world.

Reasons why you should always strive to stay alive in every situation that presents itself.

Live

One thing we all as humans have in common Is the mere fact that no matter the strata of life we are, we always have cahalleneges. The poor as well as the rich, the young as well as the old, the naive as well as the experiences, experts as well as the apprentice. We all have our simple problems and the very intense ones. While you are currently battleing a problem that makes you wonder if yours happen to be the worst on earth, only for you to hear of someone else who has an even life threatening problem.

They say billionaires and successful people always loom to solve a problem, which in turn made them successful in one field or another. Many people these days assume that succes is gotten in a day, or in just the very moment you start to put in the work in your chosen field. Peopl are slowly taking away the natural process of hard work before success. They think the emergence of the Internet had taken away the most vital path success. HARDWORK

This is the reason why it is so quick for people , especially teenagers give up on life for the most insignificant thing. Fights, heartbreak, being left out, being rejected and being made to feel incompetent.  Stand your ground guys. No one got it so easy, no one. Stand up to that problem, seek to solve that test and exams, seek to go over that life hurdle, seek to make a come back, seek to be healthy, seek to be happy , seek to feel competent, seek to be in love with your self too much to even think of ending your life. If you love yourself that much, you won’t even think of pinching yourself, talk more of ending your precious life.

Do you even know if the is Are movies,  good food, friends, happiness, family, achievements, stardom, sex, love, spouses, good houses and cars, career and awards, on the other side.? This is what we don’t know until we have experienced it. So please, whet ever you find yourself, no Matt the challenge, don’t you dare think you are alone in the world of ‘good plan, bad reality’. Always see every challenge in life as a hurdle you have been asked to scale through. Be strong be alive, because we are all in this together .

Oby Oriji fitness: I changed my workout routine after a year, and here is the effect.

Hi guys,  how is the day going? So I am revealing the facts rant I have finally changed my workout routine. I have been using a downloaded video of Insanity workout . This was gotten from the wowy site where workout addicts like myself get paid to upload their every workout videos, which I was never able to do for some reasons best known to me. So, for you to win $1000 dollars with every workout video uploaded, you and you friends or workout buddies will go to wows.com to get them procedure.

Using the insanity Cardio was rejuvenating for me, It helped me stretch, feel fit, and get health(physically and mentally). But the problem with it, was that I didn’t lose weight as much and fast as  expected. I still had my bulgy belly even after workout was done on a daily basis. I even resulted to doing it morning and evening in my room, trying to increase my metabolism which I thought was the problem why I wasnt losing as much as I should.  It didn’t happen, probably because I am a rice addict and being a typical Nigerian, I love to eat my high carbohydrate, and high oil in the stew meal.

But a couple of months ago, I decided to try out something new, since I love to learn everyday.  I saw a cool chic with the best body, belly and move on Instagram and decided to study her every move because I wanted that kind of body. Now I am not exercising to look muscular, because I know some people think every girl who workouts will end up looking  like a man with flat chest  and ass. I mean yes. You are basically taking fat out of you entire body.

I got introduced to running by my sister afte she decided to go back to exercise, and for the very  first day, I could feel my heart pumping so loud that it immediately got me feeling faint every though I did that all the time. I ran and did my haut 5×100 for a month, and I immediately felt the difference. The sweat, the morning breeze against my skin, and then the instant result. I could feel, see and hear the testimony. I immediately decided that I will be running for as long as my body can take it.

Fotunately for me, my body can actually take it and more, and this is the result of it. The and the photos.

As human beings, we all hope to have all our life plans come together in no time, some of us act towards it, while others simply wait for it to come and hit them in the face according to what they have been taught or told. If history doesn’t fail us, we have all known that people who have succeeded over the existence of this earth, Have had to put in the hard work in order to come out successful.

Now, there must be a dream that you have always had, to become a certain person in life, to have so much money (like every others person) , to have fame and power and so on. The difference between the people who didn’t achieve their dreams till their death and those who did, is that the successful people went after their dreams.

Pin Nigeria today, there ar a lot of unhappy people, most of them are graduate who have left college but have no job waiting for them like they were promised at birth and in school.

Grafuates in Nigeria have a big problem, which is that they undermine jobs, they select job even with the fact that some of them are unqualified for it even with their degrees, they don’t have enough weight in sir head to keep up a 1 hour conversation on what ever degree they have gotten. Most times I ask my fellow Nigerian youths who have no jobs a simple question.

Me: “What have you always like to become in Life, that didn’t need any form of education ?” 

Them: ” A Doctor”

Me: “no I mean something that doesn’t really need you to attend any school before you can do it. Ok what would you have become if you didn’t have the chance to atten college?”

Them: “Me I don’t know OO”

That surprises me.  Even  though some have good answers for me, others cut short the conversation to avoid being embarrassed. The rest have done absolutely nothing towards making their dreams come alive. If you graduated colleg and no job, then retrace your steps and have a rethink and come up with ideas of what you will feel fulfilled doing. As a kid, I have always loved to write, act, and sing. After college had a rethink aw well.

You can only feel fulfilled when you do what you like, what makes you feel smart, what challenges your mind, when your fulfillment doesn’t depend on any body else. When it doesn’t come from spite and tearing down people in the same struggle to succeed.

You can only be fulfilled when you are the source of your own fulfillment. Challenge yourself, try out new things, take risks, date who you like, don’t pay attention to people’s opinions, don’t listen to the ‘NOs’ you get from people who thought would be your savior.

With God, Your Actions, determination, hard work and consistency, you will surprise yourself. Don’t say I will start tomorrow, start today. Do it today. Don’t pay attention to any body laughing  at you and deciding your future for you, because even they themselves, don’t know what their future will look like. But you can affect your future by working towards it. But no one wants to work so hard and when it is time to reap the fruit of your labour, you die or passion. So To keep yourself healthy and hearty enough to experience that future you are building for yourself, you should better sick with ObyOrijifitness to keep the body running at all times. PRAY, WATCH, and ACT.

The surprising thing I saw people do on the road today.

Oby Oriji fitness

In as much as we all want to lead a healthy life, there is always the need to trade with caution. After my run   Earlier  today, I was opportune to visit the busy main road, now crowded with cars and school kids and even workers,  where I saw a hand full of individuals like myself, running. while they ran on the road meant for cars just because the pedestrian walk way was flooded as it was being used by other people. And since they don’t want to run into anyone, they would rather run on the busy road, expecting vehicles to avoid them while they run. That is a selfish and high dangerous thing to do.

The danger involved here, can never be over emphasized. When people run early in the morning, even without having to disturb the road meant for cars, they are exposed to robbery, rape, accident, and fall. Now this has been known to be the regular stories coming from runners. But when you go as far as running on the way meant for vehicles, then you are doubling your already known risks. So please guys, don’t expect drivers to protect you when you can’t protect yourself by running on the path meant for pedestrians. Protecting yourself was the reason why you woke up in the first place to run. Losing weight and stay alive was the aim of your exercise, So please don’t contradict yourself by placing your body in a place that it can be gravely harmed.

Run on the pedestrian walk way. And if you can do that, then please engage in some kind of exercise that doesn’t require the road. Stay safe while living healthy. You can run in your neighborhood, you can run in your compound, and you can run on your street. It doesn’t have to be the road. There is the option for cardio, and gym. Those too can be safe for you while you try to get your goal body. Stay safe honeys .
