Diastasis Recti and Form

I hurt my back while exercising recently. I was in the middle of a deadlift and then I felt a pain in my lower back. For someone who exercises frequently and loves deadlifts, it seems strange but it happened. I can’t explain how, but I didn’t focus on form and therefore hurt my back. It’s…

Structure = Freedom

Having structure in my life makes a huge difference. It may seem inflexible, but I find it quite helpful and it also gives me the freedom to vary things too. Some don’t like structure because it’s normally associated with rigidity. However, this is far from the truth. When I started exercising at home, I did…

Sometimes I am an Impostor

I recently attended the WimBiz Annual Conference and my favourite session was the Impostor Syndrome one. Why? It reminded me that I’m sometimes an impostor. Impostor syndrome refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be. While this definition is usually narrowly applied to intelligence…

Not afraid of the rain 🌧

I had frequent asthma attacks growing up. They were triggered by things like dust, moisture, strong smells, fumes, drastic change in weather and being in the rain for only a few seconds. Some attacks were mild, others left me hospitalized or at home for a few days. In a bid to avoid asthma attacks, I…

Love your body

For me, there’s nothing like exercising outdoors. To breathe in fresh air, to enjoy the calmness, possibly some scenery … Mornings work best for me and so joining Coach Ojoi’s bootcamp January last year was perfect.

Childhood memories

My mum loved to bake and cook and she didn’t leave us on these. Once we were old enough to understand what was going on, we were in the kitchen with her. She had a few cook books, a treasure filled with some delightful recipes. I remember our cupcake 🧁 baking days, always a delight…

Who is your boss

I attended a ‘Connecting Stories’ event today and the speaker Mrs. Ayeni shared a few lessons based on her life experiences. The one that stuck out to me was – God is your boss. She said she saw God as her boss all the time. It didn’t matter who her physical boss was – whether…

Who are you?

My children and I went to see Lion King on Sunday. What we watched wasn’t exactly new as we have seen Lion King 2 (the cartoon) so many times. The movie was easy to follow and we all enjoyed watching it. The main lesson I learned from the movie was on IDENTITY. Scar knew exactly…

Speaking nicely to people

Speaking nicely to people is easy but then it doesn’t come easy to everyone I have observed that how people speak to others is based on how they were raised* It’s important to me and I am working on this with my children, as it’s best when they get it  while they are young If…
