My Weight Loss Journey – The Ups and the Downs


Since childhood, I’ve always had issues with my weight. You can say I was on a yoyo situation where I’d gain weight, lose it, gain it again and so on. Arguably, when I was young it was more of “Baby fat”, but that gave me a hard time at school. For goodness sake I tried…

New Year’s Resolutions


As we come to the end of 2016, it’s wise to take the time to reflect on the year, seeing what went well (and taking note of the reasons behind the success), what didn’t go so well (and taking note of what went wrong, what can be learnt from it and how that can be…

The Comparison Trap


“The most crippling thing you can do to yourself is to compare yourself to others. Your journey is unique, YOU are unique. Your story is unique. As a matter of fact, you should be PROUD that you’re not “regular”. You should be proud to be different from others. Don’t rush yourself simply because others are…

Let It Shine

Why on earth should I “grow up”? 


In exactly 6 months from this day, I’m going to be 21 again. I must say, I’m extremely nervous about all the things awaiting me in the future: the added responsibilities, moving out, kickstarting a career, the possibility of looking after another human being besides myself, accomplishing my dreams, goals and all that jazz 😖 To…

Let It Go (again)


About 2 years ago, I shared my thoughts on letting go. I touched on forgiveness, letting go of grudges and any negativity etc. The thing about life is that we constantly have to revisit so many things we’ve told ourselves to do. So today, I’m back again, urging myself and anybody else in a similar…

Bare necessities of Happiness


   When I literally created my own happiness. (I’m a chocoholic 🙋🏾) Happiness is such a simple thing, yet we all struggle to find it, and sometimes we try to find it in all the wrong places. Just like any other emotions like sadness and fear, I personally believe that happiness is within our control….

Fear? What’s Fear?


No matter how strong, feisty or fierce we are, we all have our fears and weaknesses. These may range from creepy crawlers that make the hairs on the back of our necks stand up as we screech like a cat being chased by dogs, to perhaps the fear of rejection and humiliation (boys not asking…

2 weeks left – "I’m panicking" is an understatement!


It’s been one helluva week down here with the preparations, shopping and so much to take in! Having spoken to my trip organisers about what to bring etc, I’ve had to delve into my savings to buy essentials. It’s been fun I must say! There are so many things I didn’t know about or never…

The excitement!


It’s been a hectic week this week! I’ve realised how lately my life is mostly spent at work, working out or sleeping! This week hasn’t been very different from the previous. With only 4 weeks to go, I’m starting to feel the pressure mounting on me as I rush to get one thing done or…
