So guys, I have always been saying how much I hate to Waist train, until I realized in the hardest way possible, How hard it is to get rid of the belly fat that are at both sides of my stomach. Since I don’t lift weight because I am an indoor workout person, I don’t get to build my abs ( even though they have appeared) as fast as the gym guys, so I see a flat belly with chunky sides.

So I took the bold step to order for the Fitness belt from an online fitness store @trim.zone which came after 27 hours. Now I am using my fitness belt while working out, the painful burn gives life I tell you. It snatches up my sides and keeps me trimmed. But I can literally feel it tighten up my insides. If you love to look good more than you hate pain, then you should go ahead and join me for a sexy Christmas. Waist trainer a.k.a , fitness belt, can be gotten from.

Humanity need: What to do with your Sunday left overs in Nigeria.

newproject_1_original

Hi Guys, so since many readers of Oby Oriji blog aren’t from Nigeria, I will let you know what a typical Nigerian Sunday food looks like. Before advising my Nigerian people on what to do with their leftovers.

In Nigeria, a none written and oral rule has existed for as long as anyone can remember. Since half of Nigeria’s population are Christians, there is a huge attendance of church services on Sundays. After that, they are known to gather as a family to consume the famous Nigerian rice. They come in various ways depending on the part of the Country you find yourself.

On Sunday in the Northern part of the Country, White rice is boiled and eaten with chicken, goat meat,beef, ice fish or dried fish, offals or stockfish stew. Theses could be combined with fried plantain, boiled beans and eggs. Since fresh vegetables are grown in the North, the Northerners normally eat their rice with Spinach, lettuce, cabbage, Ugo. In the south, there is a high consumption of Nigerian jollof rice a.k.a party rice. Some eat Jollof with the ultimate ingredient (Bay Leaf) present, others have it garnished with carrots, green peas and beans,amongst other basic spices. Visit My friend sisiyemmie.com to access her various recipes for a delicious Nigerian Jollof.

But today we will look at how to handle leftovers in our homes. In Nigeria these days, a lot of families, especially kids go to bed on an empty stomach while keeping it a secret. Families that have, can always help families that don’t. It is equally a tradition to have most Nigerian kids eat rice for lunch on Mondays which is as a result of the over flow from Sunday. But we are very much aware that it is not every household that has kids to help consume the left over rice the next day. For those who are stuck with their left over with no babies to take them to school and consume.

This is the category we are dealing with. For the sake of humanity, you might not have the non sufficient (‘have nots’) come up to you to share their challenges with you, or embarrassingly ask her food out of their pride.

So if you look around you carefully,paying attention to details, you will see that a lot of Nigerians are suffering. So please, don’t give your leftovers to your over fed dogs,cats pigs, or over fed kids, there are a lot of humans who need it to survive. Take away packs (Take out plastics), are everywhere you can think of in the Country, and even flooding in homes that eat out. Use them to package the leftover rice neatly with or without meat, and give out the plates of food to these needy people in the neighbourhood.

While doing it, please try not to take pictures and videos to prove to the world that you are being kind and generous to the needy. It is between you and God, let him pay back your good deeds his own way. You should know that it is not between you and social media users who you are hoping to get likes and follows from,like some well known celebrities. Do it in the secret, no one needs to know.
Hand the filled plates to the needy humans in your community, streets, or neighbourhood and leave them alone. Don’t pull out a phone for a quick snap or video. That is how you can handle your leftovers after Sunday, or other times you have more than enough to eat. Help the poor out there, and stay low key.

Oby Oriji blog Fitness: The Pros and Cons of having a work out buddy.

Screenshot_20171113-122832

So guys,how was your weekend? Or should I say, how is the new week going? Did you work out or the cold mean hands of Monday morning took your attention? You know what they say in the workout world.
“Never miss a Monday”. Well that was the reason why I woke up early enough this morning, looking for my workout buddies, one was preparing to travel, and the other one was preparing to have a walk of shame. I became my own motivation and inspiration that I got up, got ready and went ahead to run my 10 laps. But the most important thing is that I noticed my belly fat went intact, so I started my deadly 5x100s this morning and almost passed out. Reason being that it stabs you belly,immediately showing how efficient It is. My 5x100s consist of:

1. 100 Toe Touches
2. 100 Crunch claps
3. 100 legs lifts
4. 100 dynamic planks
5. 100 bicycle crunches. Find photos below for this moves.
It burnt me like crazy. With that said I will like to weight the pros and cons of having a workout buddy.

Pros:
For a person newly on a weight loss journey, they require a lot of motivation form a workout buddy. It is simply difficult for them to do it all by themselves because they are feeling the urge to go back to their old ways of life, but with the help of a workout buddy, they get consistent with the healthy life. So it is safe to conclude that a workout buddy is simply most important to the new convert who thinks exercise is torture to the human soul, when it is in fact the most beautiful thing.

Cons: Now on the other hand, when an already motivated fit fam, has a lazy or new to the fit life workout buddy, then he or she is bound to disrupt your consistency. They have all kinds of reason to prevent them from working out which will definitely affect you enthusiasm. They will have the lamest excuse not to join you. Now if you are not a determined fellow, you will find your self feeling as lazy as the actual lazy person.

Take for example, this morning, my workout buddies couldn’t join me because one had spent the night at her boyfriend’s and was about having her drive of shame while I had finished working out, while the other was on vacation. If I was completely dependent on my workout buddies for motivation for every time I needed to workout, I definitely would not be as consistent as I am with my healthy workout life.

Lesson of the day is: In this life, you will be required to be your own motivation. Don’t always rely on people for your strength, most times it doesn’t come. Not even your family members will always support you. You are enough, you are strong, you are a star in the making.

The best way for Nigerian parents to digest their food after a late dinner.

IMG_20171110_191550

Hi guys, So we are not going to pretend that we all have salad for dinner like the western world, you all know that in Nigeria, most times our dinner consist of starch, starch, starch. First of all, we can’t help ourselves, these cuisines are delicious, and it is torture to skip them most times.

We have also been told to stop eating the moment it is 4pm, but that too, is seriously hard to accomplish because some people in Nigeria get home from work by 9pm, due to traffic. They definitely will have dinner while on their way or when they eventually get home. So that too, is a bit impossible around here to adhere to.

But today, what we will be looking specifically at the only option we are left with when all we consider impossible is kept aside. After you have had you dinner, feeling heavy and sleepy at the same time, there are two things that you can do to feel better light and ready to sleep immediately.

1. Boil a big cup of water. while it is very hot, drop a bag of Lipton tea, or top tea, or even green tea like you can see mine in the picture above. Since the water got to its boiling point, it will take a very short time for the tea bag to colour diffuse. The moment the water is coloured, don’t add any milk, milo or sugar to it, start sipping it hot. Don’t wait for the water to get warm, or even cool. This will wash down your food along with all the oil or grease in it, and you will immediately start to belch which signifies your hastened digestion process. Give yourself 3-5 minutes to allow the tea travel to every corner of your stomach causing a quick digestion. The good thing about this is that it also melts stomach fat and fat from the food you just consumed. This is my quick tip to feeling better after every late night snack or dinner. But if the tea will stimulate you, i.e preventing you from going to sleep, then this second option is for you.

2. Boil a cup of hot water, and sip in it until you start to belch. No sugar, no milk( because it causes bloating), but you can have a little milo to taste.

But the best way is to have a very light dinner, like bread and tea. If you can avoid oily food at night, that would awesome. As for my amazing fellow patriots who love swallow and soup for dinner, you need a pot of tea. Lol.. But Eba for dinner is dangerous. They are better of eaten for lunch.

Try this and give me your feedback. As for me, I just finished my mug full of Tea.

How Nigerian Billionaires source for energy to sustain themselves.

IMG_20171110_073928

Fortunately for us, Gone are the days when Nigerian men showed their wealth through the size of their pot belly, like we have always known as kids, Back then when  life centered on the saying that “Pot belly is an evidence of good living”. That statement alone, has single handedly caused more death than Ebola has caused in Nigeria. People loved to look wealthy with luscious skin and bloated body. While the men were told to to show their achievements by the size of their belly, who were advised to have a big belly because it would enable their wrappers sit right in the waist. Skinny women were referred to as poor and I deficient since their wrappers will always look like they were handed down to them.

I was opportune to have a quick chat with a prominent Nigerian, on how they get to attend all these meetings all day long, make all these business decisions, and handle all these employees and money, travel around the world for business. He told me that the initial key obviously will be to Pray, to plan, to work hard, and finally to EXERCISE..

He said they (The rich),  automatically feel better  and stronger when they sweat out their stress. I was not surprised to learn that the wealthy people of this world are extremely busy with making money, but still find the time to  workout so much. Because the brain, the heart, and entire body system, get blood flow which leads to an efficient work flow. Every Rich man in Nigeria nowadays, is thriving to be as slender as the average person, and this is the reason  why their bodyguards are now  being mistaken for the boss.

While we sleep, these men work, while we are awake, they equally work. So if exercise has been named the main source of the energy, and is working out well for them, then why are you and I, not doing the same to be like these wealthy people? I see people who don’t lift a pin in the name of workout, complain about all kinds of pain, and tell you that they can’t find time to workout because of their 9-5 jobs. when I look at their counterparts who always workout, it is incredibly clear who is living a better life. Now for an employee, you might not have the time to work out everyday like I do, but you can try weekends and every other day. Burn the fat and tell me how it felt. You will realize how much energy you will get from nowhere. The “I am tired” statement will drastically diminish without you clearly realizing it. You job descriptions will be exceeded, once again without you knowing it.  Feel free to comment what our think. What is your own reason for not working out? It could be due to a surgery, or delivery, I will like to know.
