What I did and where I went on Boxing Day

Hello beautiful people, how are you guys doing? Compliments of the season! What did you guys do on Christmas day? For me, I cooked and cooked and cooked and there was so much food even our dogs had a share of the Christmas rice.
What did you do on Boxing day? hmmm I had fun, so much fun mouth no go fit talk am, that is why I have decided to share with you guys. We (My friends and I) planned a double date to Lekki Leisure Lake.
First of all we had previously seen a few reviews about the place including Sisi Yemmie's review and that was our driving force, we just wanted to explore and we sure did, lemme gist you...

Story Story! Once upon a Boxing day!...
Le boo and I set out to hit the Island from Ikeja and by the grace of God the ride was smooth, we were to meet up with our lovely friends Tomi and Omobola. We were going o, jejely driving behind our friend Tomi who said he knew the place, we entered Lekki phase1 like people who knew where we were going, we sited a spot that looked really nice with boats and ajebutter children and rushed to park only for us to realize 'This place does not look like what we saw in the review' so we decided to ask where we were and found out we were at one garden like that (can't remember the name).
We drove away in search of our destination, (bear in mind that we were still following Tomi o who said he knew the place LOL), we decided to stop and consult GOOGLE MAPS and by the grace of God we found the place in Lekki phase2 behind Vantage Hotel after touring the whole of Lekki...Praise the Lord!!!

 We were finally at our desired destination and we parked in anticipation for what we were to experience, as ajebutter children, we strolled to the gate, paid and went in and to our utmost surprise we were disappointed :(...the place was so crowded, we tried getting something to eat but the queue was endless and the customer service was messed up.
We decided to go check out the Quad bike area, that was even worse because every other person wanted to ride and it was just tiring, so we decided to take a stroll to the other side of the lake which looked to us like an abandoned beach.
This was the place mehn, this was were all the fun took place, we took pictures and played in the water.
The water was a bit dirty so we decided to head back to the lake to try out the Quad bike as we don already buy ticket.
There were so many people waiting already and we just could not wait so we went to return our tickets, only for us to get there and the guy there was saying crap like they don't do refund that we can use the ticket the next time we come (Say what??? I sure aint coming back here nigga) we had to stand by his kiosk and sell our tickets to people who wanted to ride.
That was how we sold our tickets and saved 8k and we left. All in all it was a good experience but the leisure lake is highly overrated, we tried to have fun tho and we did. We then headed back to Lekki phase1 to have lunch and traveled back home.

Thank God for safety and keeping us to see the end of the year 2013.
I hope you enjoyed my story? Thanks for reading

Your comments are important to me and I would like to know what you did and where you went to on Boxing day.

How to get a flat stomach

Hi everyone, how you guys doing today? Do you have plans for the holiday yet? Well i am already on holidays and and i am enjoying every bit of it, and its giving me enough time to work on my blog thank God for that.
Today I am talking about Flat Stomach, oh yessssssss Flat Tommy you heard me right! Its a very sensitive topic especially for me, funny enough i do not have a big stomach i only wish it was flatter *wink*.

Here are a few steps to follow to achieve that dream flat abs.
1. Don't eat anything for two to three hours before you sleep.
Your body slows down when you sleep, which would prevent  the body from digesting the food in your stomach properly. You are also much less active in the evenings and at night, which means that your body would store the calories you consume late at night as fat, rather than burning them as energy. Say NO to late night feeding, try to stop eating two to three hours before going to bed.

2. Eat healthier
You need to eat more healthy foods and when i mean healthy i mean fruits, vegetables and whole grain and one very important step is to cut down on JUNK FOOD like candy, chips and fast food etc...this could be really hard considering the fact that there are so many sweet things to be eaten in this life but it is very possible and if you are able to conquer this then you are a few steps closer to success.Here are some simple changes you can make:
  • Eat lots of lean protein; Beans, nuts and lean meat, (lean meat is good as long as you don't eat the fat)
  • Eat whole grains; look for labels that say "100% whole grain or wheat", whole grain keeps you feeling full for a longer time.
  • Eat low-fat diary products
  • Eat healthy fats; Not all fat is actually bad, the mono-saturated fats found in avocados, nuts and fish oil are actually very good, just stay away from the trans fat found in processed foods and baked goodies
  • Lower your sodium intake; I am preaching to the choir here because I no dey hear word when it comes to salt but thank God for my life I have reduced my sodium intake. Sodium causes your body to retain water, which causes you to look bloated especially around your abdominal region, when ever possible switch regular table salt for kosher or sea salt which is lower in sodium and please stay away from soy sauce as it is full of it.
3. Reduce your portion sizes
You should eat just enough until you feel full and then stop, there is no joy in over feeding *straight face*. One good trick is to use smaller plates when eating and also try to fill half the plate with vegetables. Try to chew more slowly and thoroughly its helps to speed up the digestion process.

4.Eat small frequent meals

Replace your usual eating three large meals a day, with eating smaller, more regular meals. Many people make the mistake of eating nothing at all during the day and settle for a huge lump later in the day especially when they are trying to lose weight, however, this type of diet will negatively effect blood sugar levels and cause you to eat more due to hunger, thus making it harder to loose weight.
Having a small, healthy snack every three to four hours and not letting yourself go hungry is a much healthier and a more effective system.

5. Drink plenty water
Water is essential! I can say that over and over again because water is sweet.
You should replace all your regular beverages with water, especially soda and sugared drinks which are full of empty calories and will cause your stomach to bloat. Drinking lots of water will help to flush toxins out of your system and keep your bowels moving, both of which are essential for a flat stomach.
Pay attention to your body's signs. Your urine should be a light yellow or clear color; dark yellow with an odor could be a sign that you are dehydrated. NA WA OH!

6. Cut down on alcohol
Aha hehehehehehehehehehehehe what can i say about this? I am preaching to my own personal choir here *covers face* 
We should seriously consider cutting down alcohol, particularly wine and beer,they are full of calories (scary fact: one bottle of wine contains roughly 600 calories), thank God i don't take beer sha.
Alcohol consumption also releases estrogen into the system, which is undesirable, as excess estrogen causes the body to retain weight. Oh my God *covers face again*
Alcohol also stimulates appetite and causes willpower to melt away, making you much more likely to binge on all the things you've been depriving yourself of, like burgers, fries, pizza, chocolate and potato chips.

7. Exercise
This cannot be over emphasized, activities such as dancing, running, swimming, cycling and walking at a good pace will all provide a great aerobic workout, in fact, anything that brings your heart rate up will do the trick and don't forget to include ab exercises. 

Thats all I have got right now guys, I hope these tips would help you in your quest for your dream Flat Stomach.
