I have no excuse this time around i have just been lazy, yes i said it, very lazy. Tried to blog a couple of times and got distracted midway so i have tons of half baked posts still lounging in my drafts. How is everyone doing? Very big congrats to emmalecious on the birth of her baby girl, her baby is so cute, you'll should check her Instagram.

Lately, i have been trying to keep fit and lose weight but brethren, the journey has not been easy. Whoever said it was easy? Loosing weight has to be the most difficult project i have embarked on this year and i am glad that i have started seeing progress. I read Berry Dakara's post about how some people advise women to remain overweight because their bodies belong to their husband. I think that is a foolish thing to say to even start with. Who needs all that excess luggage? So a woman should keep adding weight because her husband loves FAT even though her health is at risk? Do men really say that or i am just overreacting? Does it also count as women submitting to their husband as seen in Eph 5:22? I think women should look however they please, Skinny, fat, overweight, obese, muscular. It is our body and our decision!!!

Anyways, what i have been doing is working out indoors, there is a gym right beside my house and i haven't registered yet because i want to be sure that my subscription will not waste which is why i am practicing at home first. I use fitness blender on Youtube and i ensure that i work out for at least 30-40 minutes everyday. Hubby has started exercising with me and he has really been putting in a lot of effort for someone that detests exercising.

I will also start jogging in the mornings as from next month and hubby has said he doesn't have the strength for that one so i am on my own for now. I found this amazing group of exercise addicts called Truppr who have been my biggest source of motivation. Their name always reminds me of ABBA, you guys know the song "Super Trouper" right? Let me help you remember...

My newest Truppr family 


Can't remember what we were doing here

I participated in the TrupprWALK from stadium to CMS, Igbo Efon to Lekki Ikoyi bridge and the latest TrupprRUN that happened in VI. I have been able to initiate some of my friends who have also remained faithful. Its a lot of fun working out with a group of people, that's the best form of motivation as far as i am concerned.

In other news, someone really hurt me and treated me like a piece of shit for reasons best known to her. It took the special grace of God not to do anything stupid because i was exasperated  and was ready to lash out at her. You know when someone is deliberately provoking you to the extent where you overact and suddenly become the bad person? That was exactly the scenario i found myself in. How do you deal with anger? I would really love to know.

I am grateful for great friends like Toinlicious who helped me calm down. That girl sends the bestest voice notes in Yoruba. LOOOL.


P;S. Did you notice that i changed my blog layout? Yay or nay?

How forgiving are you?

Are there people like me, who ignores whoever offends them or believes that the extent of offense is directly proportional to the silent treatment the offender will receive? I don't even know how that works but that description is very much who i am  was. I think its a huge problem most especially because its not christainly. TK also observed this trend in me and spoke to me about it and as usual, i was very defensive and was unwillingly to accept his accusation even though i knew he was right.

I remember the last quarrel i had with him, i was so furious and hurt that i went to bed immediately. I couldn't even sleep, i just kept ruminating on how he could say hurtful words and also wondering how i could hurt him as much as he hurt me......yes, that happens....until i slept off. I woke up before my alarm went off the next morning which was a clear indication that there was something on my mind, i got dressed went to work, half into work, i sent him airtime but i still wasn't speaking to him.

Later that evening, he tried to make small talks like asking what i had for lunch and what we were having for dinner but i chose not to respond except he apologized to me but this young man didn't o. He finally gave up trying to talk to me and was paying so much attention to the TV which even made me angrier. I served dinner and he said thank you but i still ignored him.

The next morning, i woke up determined to vent out my anger so i tapped him and made him realize that he really hurt me and when i was done i demanded for an apology. He apologized immediately and we made up like couples do lol. But in retrospect, i knew i wouldn't have forgiven him immediately even if he had apologized to me at that moment he got me upset. To put things into perspective, i simply forgive when i am ready to which is a very bad habit.

Afterwards, i promised TK that i will never let the sun go down on my anger which is God's standard so its good enough. And to the glory of God and shaming the devil, i have been keeping to my promise,this is only because TK reminds me whenever i start ignoring him. Sometimes when he reminds me i say to myself "Oh shit, why did i make this promise". To crown it all, the guest preacher who ministered in our church on Sunday said whoever does not forgive has not received God's forgiveness, that struck me really hard and made me more determined to keep to my promise.

So over to you readers. Do u forgive easily?

Testing! Testing!!

Hellllooooo everyone, how are we all doing? Its been quiet here since forever shey? Make una no vex o, Happy new year is in order abi? I have just become very lazy at blogging and there are so many times i really wanted to write but i just never did.

I don't need a soothsayer to tell me that a lot has happened in blogsville but first of all, i am happy New dawn is back, hope y'all  can see  i am still current. I also know that the search for the guy who pounds Toin's yams still continues and Atilola's "Guess the blogger series" has

It feels good to be back and getting to write a post after about 5 months, feels like i just got back from maternity leave. The truth is that i have been so occupied with work and plenty other activities but i am back for good.

Mr. Incredible came up with a pet name for me after sooo much persuasion, i love nicknames a lot, infact all my friends and my colleagues have nicknames that i came up with myself. For example, lets assume your name is Vivian, it becomes Vivi automatically, so its either i make a shortform out of your existing name or come up with a totally different name. So as i was saying, MI came up with "Sweebe", the first time i heard him call me that i was like "swe what"?

For someone who loves and has multiple nicknames like i do "sweebe" cannot and will not work so i just jejely told him to stick to sweetheart. Let me tell yo some of my numerous nicknames, Atoskin, Toseke, Toskolo, Tosyno, TosTos, sweeti, Sucre Extra boogie should i continue? Lol

That is how some of my friends started asking me why i call hubs Mr. Incredible, they have been teasing me about the word "Incredible" and i have told them that their mind needs to be renewed.

Before i go i will just like to say that if you are in need of a nice nickname, send me your real name and you will be amazed at what i will come up with.

See you all same time same station next.........?
