It has been a while I posted and I say sorry to all my readers. Life as we all know it has been busy. And thankfully I have been busy doing Fitness things…..Yeah, all around me now, I am been called a Fitness Addict ‘cos all I talk about is Fitness Fitness Fitness…….and I am not ashamed of it at all. Due to popular demand, I worked hard at it and ensured my 29th Birthday would coincide with the birth of new Fitness Baby with the name (……….guess) FITNESS ADDICT…..just had to use that name.
For those of you just getting to know me, here is a brief background.
How it all started…..
During the Occupy Nigeria Strike earlier this year- 9th to 16th January 2012, I took a decision that would change my life forever and for good. Little did I know that my unilateral decision would not only affect me physically but would affect the other aspects of my life, that of my family and my friends, acquaintances and yet to be acquaintances.
I took charge of my life and decided to subscribe to a healthy life
I enrolled into a gym and in the midst of all the ‘Prudency’ that am known for……LOL…..I engaged the services of a Personal Trainer
He showed me the ropes and taught me everything I needed to know about strength training, cardio etc. and most especially, taught me how to run……..Yes he did bring the running monster out of me
6 weeks after- in March to be precise- I had lost 5kg and was super excited. Told the whole world about it… at least those who cared to listen.
At this point I observed this was getting serious. I was seeing my body change right in front of my own eyes. I then embarked on a lifestyle sustainable overhaul.
I got drafted into the best support group for weight loss on Facebook by Ohalie in March, this was where I got ideas of how to cook our usual local foods in the healthy way to lose weight with the help of my weight loss mentors.
I learnt my diet was 80% of the weight loss process- No wonder I never lost any weight while exercising with Sade this past year without cleaning up my diet………….
I knew about a lot of diets but two most frequent constraints were:
• How to localize them to fit into Nigeria and our foods
• How I can economically sustain them- what if I am broke this week, would I not eat???
I learnt how to make;
• Oil free rice
• Oil free moimoi
• Oil free beans
• Steamed Ugwu
• And so on
Now with a cleaned up diet plus a minimum of 1hour of exercise daily, I was ready to take up this ‘Weight loss Challenge’ against all odds
By the end of April, I had lost 17kg and always looking forward to showing off my new body………I loved the new me
Really loved the way my adrenaline pumped whenever I was exercising- sincerely, it was a feeling of getting high and I loved it
By May, I felt like it was time to tell the whole world about my experience.
I started to write my blog while my friend Jumi and with my support started our own weight loss support group on blackberry called ‘Watch us Shrink’ WUS – The group aka ‘The Shrinkers’ has become the talk of the fitness community these past months both in Nigeria and abroad.
We have several success stories………
Since early September I have succeeded in maintaining an ideal weight for me after losing a total of 24kg in all.
