Merry Chritmass to you all !!

Ok so the title of this post is cliche - but i really mean it !
I adore Christmas so much mostly because am such a believer in God and the love he had for us that he gave his son to come and  be born and live and die for us !
So am the kind of person who keeps up those traditions i thought were so shady when i was a teenager Merry christmass!! Am the kind of person who loves traditions, and christmass for me is a time for me and my family to do the things we love together .
I always buy a bigger christmass tree (than what we had  last year ) and we light up the house with nice fairy lights - just like my mum used to do for us -  and my firstborn - who is now five - lights up and i think thats the most interesting part about making the house all cheery for Christmass.
This tree stays - whether we spend christmass at home or away from home- its always on my todo list.
This time round i bought for her red and green balloons and she went all crazy in the house and tonight well decorate some more and just get silly together .
So this is my last post this year !
Have fun , remember the poor ...and lets meet in January as we make weightloss resolutions!!!

Healthy eating pays off 1000%...

Hello people!
So i had decided ( secretly) that i wont go to the scales till February 2012, so that i can have antAWESOME shock . I had also decided this was enough time for me for me to indulge in Christmas festivities - i had made an allowance and so by end of feb i will recover from that !

The one thing i was conscious of all through , was my portions when eating - and my high fibre intake.
I want to belive that is what i experienced late last week. 
I went to the scales and am now 78 KGs -yes  this came as a shocker to me as when i joined the wagon back in November i was macktiming at 84 . However am all smiles and i totaly belive- 80% of weightloss and weight is basically in what we eat. If i go all out this Dec , theres a good chance ill be back to the 80s in Jan.
But in this step by step journey , am never going back . I came fromt he 90's and i know how that feels-and if i can help it am NEVER GOING BACK TO THE 90'S AND NOW THE 80'S.

In my first post in November , i actually lamented at how ill miss my target , but i was happy to be doing something about it . And what i have learnt is most important , is even when am out enjoying my barbecue- which my Hubby throws almost every weekend , at the back of my mind , i know where ive been and where i want to be.
So busy at work - but if theres one thing i know works for me - eating right!!!!


Embracing weighloss..

Thursday, 1 December 2011


I only have 5 minutes to post today so ill keep this short.
So this was meant to be healthy week challenge - and i get a 50% as the week is almost over. Too bad i got a nasty flue yesterday and so my appetite is really low- and my energy is -10 so no jogging  .However  my best friend and i have been doing quite a bit of makeovers - for our homes and weve been so busy walking round about downtown and uptown Nairobi - weve had so much fun   lunch in  town - and thats how come i got my 50%. Yesterday i atleast ate a chicken vegie salad - though this was not how i had planned the healthy thing.

So i really wanted to update midweek - yet  today i came and i kept thinking , theres nothing much to update- i doubt my scale would move an inch downwards - and i came across this website this pretty girl , is on a weightloss journey , though  she has the same goals she had three years ago, and i dint see much progress in between when i browsed her blog.

 I would hate to be on a weightloss journey all my life i mean i intend to start maintaining at some point
but this would mean i have to achieve my goal weight first - so back to the blog above chick , her before photos she just shared in November , yet her weightloss journery started in 2009. Am not even going to blame her - but this is a good lesson for me , and for any one out there trying to loose weight .Consistency is the most important thing - or else you will keep adding and 3 years from now , you will have the same objective - to loose weight only this time , you will probably have added more.

I have done well on fruits and taken some natural ( no flavor ) yogurt . And it feels nice to spend a whole day of healthy eating.
