For We Nigerians, the struggle of trying to balance a working life and a working out life, is always a challenge task especially to an employer in Nigeria.  We are quick to dislike the hard part of life, or the means of achieving a certain goal,while making it easy for us to always picture the happy part of life. Nigerians have over the years allowed some religious leaders tell them that “when they are not living a life of abundance and wealth, then it is because they are living a life of sin” According to them,  sinners don’t live a life of insufficiency. *Stop already*

We are humans. And as humans, we will see the good and bad side of life. Stop believing that a Christian will only see the good. That is no true. The bad experiences are made lighter for us as Christians when we believe in Christ. That doesn’t mean the knowledge of Christ eliminates it. So, always have a plan for everything not just the good part of life, even in the work out session.

For example, when Nigerian people are told to find time to workout while they spend their  whole life trying to make a living, they are always very quick to tell you that they are not robots, saying there is no way they  can find time to work out amongst their whole responsible of work and family, not knowing that the very moment you start to work out, you automatically get yourself an extra strength to go about carrying out your tasks at work and home.

They are quick to yell “It is impossible“. But if in a case where your body breaks down during work, you see that this people immediately find themselves some time to go to all their doctor’s appointments, all the required tests, and eventually all the bed rests and admissions in the hospital.

why are you waiting for it to get to that state before you actually take a decision to pay attention to yourself? When the doctor himself tells you that your situation has gotten to an  extent where your life depends on you exercising, and losing some weight.

To Practise what I preach,  I am now going to put myself to the test of starting my work while I am expected to resume my Job before 9am.

And Before 8am, I have designed and planned myself to have my prayer, have my 30 minutes jogging, have my 45 minutes cardio, and then a quick warm bath, and a makeup, (no breakfast ) and then leave for work by exactly 8am.

This 2018, I don’t want to preach what is hard to practice, so I will put myself to test before asking others to do it.

I will keep you guys updated in this case, obviously it will require discipline and dedication. And those are things that I have.
