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. ūüíÉūüŹĺūüíÉūüŹĺSo 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 ūüĎąūüŹĹ. Thank you

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” ūü§ďūüėĚ

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.

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 .

The most important thing Ladies must do after a breakup.

Inappropriate pick up lines

So where my ladies at? So this one is for my ladies. After a guy,girl or anyone you are in a relationship with decides that he or she doesn’t want to continue with you on the journey of love, this is what you should do to move on.

Now, before we continue, I will like to categorically state that, this chat is only for those who were in a relationship with another living  and willing human being. not with an imaginary guy, not with a toy, and certainly not with a guy who you were stalking and after he gets a restraining order from you, you  tell your self that it was a breakup.

So ladies, before we go to the breakup part, let us visit the actually relationship itself. When you are in a relationship ladies, especially for my African women. you should please know that your boyfriend or husband is a human being, which means that he is not perfect, and therefore, is bound to make mistake and even disappoint you in marital ways. So the key to a lasting relationship should be .

.Forgiveness: If you know your partner is a human being, you should always try to forgive him even if you caught him right in the act of sex with someone else. You are allowed to get angry and act out, but If you breakup or divorce him, the next person to take his place Will still not be perfect. Ladies, no body, not even you, is PERFECT.  So always have it in mind that he will do something to show that he is a human being. Because women to men ratio in the world these days, is like men1:7 women, so your husband will have more tempting girls than the unwilling ones. If he is in love enough to come back to you every night, then you should try to let go of some issues.

.IGNORING and not REACTING to every single thing:¬†As African ladies, and even western world from generations past, if you ask anyone of them how they managed to stay married for 50-70 years of their lives, they will let you know that you should not react to every thing. A saying that ‘men will always be men’ is not a joke guys. Men have a strong battle between their head and their penis constantly on a daily basis. They might love you so Much no doubt, but they are men and it takes only the strong ones to do the things you asked of them as women. ¬†Don’t react to every cheating you are lucky enough to know about, don’t threaten him with divorce every single time you are offended. Let it go, get a hobby or a career, it will help you reduce the amount of smoothering attention you pay to him. Pay attention to you kids and nurture them.

In the olden days, AFRICA women don’t really pay attention to the dealings of men with other females. But in this Century, ever since our social media life got heightened, in the name of feminism and womanhood, we have come to a dangerous place where we are quick to learn the bad deeds of the countries we look up to. we have travelled and read and even learnt how the western world women react to every single thing. Get yourself a job ladies, engage in agriculture, ¬†and concerntrate on making yourself a greater woman.

AFTER BREAKUP

After break up, when it is clear that you guys are sure you are not coming back, take a short time to grieve. Dont say you are too strong to cry it out,don’t say it depicts weakness when you cry. No. Take time out to grieve because you are a human being and you should empty your mind. After that, then concerntrate on yourself. Get that job you have always wanted, start that career you have always wanted, write that book you have always wanted, join that book club, start a workout just to look better than he use to know you, Dive straight into a thing that you have always craved. Nothing attracts a man like a lady who has direction, and you will find him saying “Hi” to you for no reason. It is the best way to get back his attention while looking good doing it. Begging him to come back to you, is the worst way, the second one is getting a quick rebound out of anger not love, just to prove that men still want you after the breakup.

If you were a stay home partner to him when you were together, take yourself away from that and get productively useful to the society and yourself, because It increases self worth for you and even for him. Don’t you dare think that he can’t see you, he sees ¬†your improvements, especially with social media. Be the bigger one and ¬†move on. Don’t be quick to move on to a new man just yet, move on to yourself. Even if you have achieved everything in life, get something, a goal, or a project to achieve. When you are done achieving one or two projects for your life, then you can look at another man.

   REASON WHY YOU SHOULDNT BE QUICK MOVE ON TO A NEW MAN.

when you quickly move on to a new man after your breakup, it shows ¬†how desperate you are to prove your previous partner wrong. You will get a man when you achieve standards. There are ways to show him what he missed other than giving your hurting heart out immediately it is broken just for it to be broken again, without allowing it to heal. Healing process is very vital, So when you move on to a new man who turns out to be what you didn’t expect, he probably just wants to sleep with you and leave, not knowing what you just went through in the previous relationship, it messes up your confidence.

If he finally leaves you just after you were left by your partner not long ago, then you are you to feel even two times worse than the first one. You will feel deeply incompetent to handle a man. You might even end up blamimg yourself for the horrible deeds of those men. You will see yourself as the problem instead of he man. Don’t do that to yourself. Your insecurity will take over you.

But if you allow yourself to heal, and achieve a set goal, a project, a workout, a book, a new career, a life time achievement. Your self confidence becomes so that you are simply smart and incredible and no man can make you feel otherwise.so when your next relationship breakup because of the partner, then you know that it wasn’t your fault. Don’t sink yourself deep into depression out of desperation. ¬†Ladies are we clear on this now?

ObyOrijiblogfitness: How to avoid gym distractions while having a good workout.

ObyOrijiblogfitness

ObyOrijiblogfitness

If you notice that I used the phrase”hitting the gym”. ¬†Gym these days to so many have become photography studio, a good place for beautiful make belief pictures which will fetch you a bag full of likes on Instagram and other social networks. Most times it is not even the fact that the pictures are likable, it is the fact that the aim of the gaming is completely defeated. When you are not aware that you can do all that without having any aspect suffer.

Now we will look at the pros and Cons, and even how to do all these while maintaining a steady workout.

Do you know you can take super cute pictures, fetch as much likes as you can, and still workout the very right way? This is the right way to do that.

. Going to the gym exposes you to smooth workout equipments, ¬†super cool workout buddies and a load of distractions. The other day while I was at a gym, I was too excited to even let myself get distracted. I was eager to take on new moves from the coach, I did more than the instructor asked, I extended my time, I rejected rest periods, and even involved my own moves. I never take water while I workout, so That didn’t have a Hold on me. I saw ladies cut their workouts just to go sip on a bottle water and visit the Internet. Some even go as far as having an intense gist right in the middle of the workout with any one whose may is close by. And then it became clear to me , that the level of distraction involved in the gym is very high, and there are ways to avoid them.

Ways to Avoid them.

. If you know how chatty you can get when ever you find yourself in the midst of people, so chatty that it basically distracts you from achieving things, Then you will have to master your trade in the house before hitting the gym. This is because the moment you get really interested workouts,  putting in your health and well being before aimless chats and gossips right in the house where you have you family and friends, then it is harder for strangers and acquaintances to distract you when you are in the gym.

. Set a goal for yourself every morning before you leave the house to the gym, because ¬†if you don’t know the extent of workout your body can with stand everyday, then you are automatically more interested in showing off your outfits and reuniting with friends in the gym, than burning your own Carbs. ¬†You tell yourself the exact type of workout, the body part that is targeted, the duration of the chosen workout. You alone, not your workout buddy, decide what you must achieve for that morning or evening. Having a buddy for workout will badly affect your achievement, so learn to push yourself farther and harder for that body.

. Picture taking time: When you put your feet down, and tell yourself that workout time is not picture or video time, unless someone is ready to help you with that, then you will constantly cut your goal short to have a perfect video or picture.  Before starting you workout, take your pictures or videos, buy yourself a phone holder, and set it to g et you full body while you workout. After setting it, Just forget it, and concentrate on the work. If you want to get pictures of your post workout, with all the sweat, and wrinkled clothes, then do that after you are done, with pride and satisfaction,

. Chatting with gym goers: when ¬†you arrive you gym, take a little time to greet, and make small talks with people who you want to exchange pleasantries with. Time yourself, don’t give too much or too little time for that, five minutes is fine. Greet them have the little talk with them. The moment gym time commences, then that is it. Don’t give room for chats and distractions. They will try to talk to you, but will start to respect and even imitate you when you ignore all distractions when the time for workout starts. The distraction agents will always be there, it is not left for you to reject their invite. All conversations can happen before and after the workout , not during.

Dont go asking people where they got their workout gears, and waist trainers and even sneakers while they are trying to burn fat, that goes to show your last of seriousness in the gym. There is time for everything, and people can tell when you don’t Joke with your time. They might not be bold enough to tell you, but they will start to respect you and aspire to be like you. When it is time to help your body, stop complaining or whining, and stop letting yourself be an agent of distraction to people who have come to make themselves better. The girls you see with awesome bodies, have the concentration of the cat family. Join them in that.

ObyOrijifitness: Does your body get itchy after you have your bath?

Itchy body

Most people have had the experience of an uncontrollable body itch after they leave the bathroom. Some assume it is the water, while others assume it is the bathroom itself, because in my family, a dirty toilet and bathroom can disgust us so much that it can physically make us sick. Now After they boil or change the water or its source, and wash the bathroom, they still have the sameerah you reaction.

In some cases, it gets even worse that it doesn’t wait for you to have your bath before it starts itching. My sisters, Onyinye and Ada, one ¬†who sometimes runs with me, while the other doesn’t have any form of physical exercise. They all started experiencing the itchy thing for some weeks now, they couldn’t say it is the bathroom, or the water because I wasn’t experiencing the same thing even though we all live together and used all those things together. They tried to investigate if there was a product that the both used that I didn’t use, and they couldn’t come up with a anything.

When they got fed up with it, and resulted to going to the hospital to find out for themselves what is going on. Surprisingly the Doctor told them that they have too much starch in the body. Their carbohydrate intake has been considered too much by their ¬†bodies. ¬†The doctor said I didn’t have the syptom, because my carbohydrate is regulated by my regular workout. Since they don’t workout, they alone suffered it without me. So I thought to myself how much importance workout has to us. Some we are completely aware of, while others like in this case, we are not. Now they both have been placed on a protein diet and have been asked to engage in some form of exercise to regulate the starchy level in their body.

Now if your body is equally going through the same thing, you should cut down on your carbohydrates intake, and start an exercise that will guarantee sweats. Sweating will hell get rid of things even you didn’t know we’re in your body.

My #experience at the #dentist, looking for the best and #cheapest #dentist in #Lagos #Nigeria.

images

So guys I am not going to lie to you, I don’t regularly pay a visit to the dentist being a typical Nigerian. I brush my teeth 2-3 times everyday, which keeps it white. But I have a crooked dentition and a receding gum, so I have no choice than to visit the dentist. I have also loved the look of braces on people, but that thing is seriously expensive.

So I visited Blanche Dental Clinic owned by Doctor Timi, the checked my entire mouth, stretching and pulling and flashing lights. I have no fear for the dentist unlike my elder sister who has had series of dreadful doctors appointment to pull her tooth. So I was calm and looking forward to the experience of cold metals put into my mouth, while the taste of rubber gloves enveloped my entire mouth.

This experience was incredible until they decided that it was time to have my mouth rejuvenated with a procecedure called ‘scaling and polishing’ this involved screding, scraping and cleaning my teeth. Taking out things that I didn’t even know were there. Now I inquired the fort of the braces part, and I realized that it was it was out of my league. I have always wanted to fix my crooked tooth. But I don’t think with this price, I can do it just yet. This was what they told me.

Metallic braces: N600 000

Ceramics braces: N800 000

Quick braces: N1 million

Now you see what I am talking about? The cheapest is 600, in a private hospital. Does anyone in Lagos know a place I can have it done for less? Please let me know, do your girl can have a perfect smile.
