Blast That Belly Fat! - Blog Reader HSF Shares Tips.

Ok for starters I think I am in a good position to advise.I am a regular UK size 8 and honestly I have to say I've got good genes because I am as laZy as #$%^ I do not gym, no exercise nothing.

I recently came back from a vacation looking like I was 4 months pregnant no kidding.
about a month later, even though I haven't achived my 6 pack back, however at least I have 90% of my flat belly back. What did I do?

1. 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of ACV(apple cider vinegar), 1 teaspoon of honey in a small regular sized mug in warm water first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
I find it helps with bowel movement and damn, that shit blasts belly fat
2. I stopped eating breakfast, I read up the hallelujah diet and since Im not desperate to go on 100% 
complete raw food, I chose to start making smoothies very morning.

My breakfast now is 1 medium sized carrot, 1 beetroot(shop rite), small portion of ginger, 1 apple, some pineapple and melon(at this point put whatever fruits and veggies you have in the house and fancy) and blend using a food processor or a blender but you might need to sieve if not properly blended.Sometimes if I'm feeling green I add some lettuce/ugwu or any greens in the house.I usually make a large batch, bottle them and throw in the freezer.Every night I bring out of the freezer and put in the fridge to thaw.

OMG this smoothie is awesome, it keeps me energized the whole day and fills my belly too, that way I find that I don't crave for my midday snacks or early lunch.I get hungry by 3/4pm and then I eat whatever food I crave for but theres a catch, Ive always done portion control since my 2nd child, that has kept my weight in check.

So please read up the benefits of ACV, the hallelujah diet and portion control. Of course some people might have it worse than me and might need to augment these with exercise.

The bottom-line is to have a very healthy lifestyle, I have learnt the art of balance very well, I do not starve myself, I eat anything I want to eat, in moderation.The biggest mistake anyone can make is to starve yourself or STOP eating all you like because when you eventually eat them you lose control.

This was in the comment section but I thought it would be more useful as a post, as more people would get to see it. 

Have you any HEALTHY tips or trick you've tried and tested to shed weight and it worked? Do share.

  1. I just noticed that majority of the things that help reduce belly fat are the same things that help reduce high blood pressure. Honey, Lemon, moringa, ginger, etc.

  2. LOL. Memphis keeps making me laugh with this moringa ish
    I think i'll also replace my breakfast & dinner with fruit/veggie smoothies!

    Let's see what happens from next month

    1. Lol @moringa ish. But the smoothies though...doesn't it increase ones appetite? When I eat lots of fruits and veges I tend to eat alot between meals. When I reduced my intake I lost 5kg.

  3. THANKS for this HSF. I know lemon is good and I sip on lemonwater all day during and after my Saturday workouts, in fact that's pretty much all I drink on Saturdays. no major food, maybe fruit n fibre cereal about 4pm n then lemon water again till I go to bed.

    Thanks for the smoothie tip. been looking for a homemade recipe as I am tired of buying smoothies for 1k. too damn expensive. I will definitely try this.

    I have also learned that as u get older, it gets much harder to lose belly fat, I used to have mad definition on my tummy a few years back and now it just feels like its impossible getting back there again. ThankGod no potbelly though, lol.

    Also, breakfast is goooooood. I find that when I have my usual 7/8am cereal, I am not as hungry again until lunch time n the tendency to snack on rubbish just isn't there. the days I'm rushing n don't eat breakfast, my God, by 10/11am, I'm looking for where to get junk food. so yeh never skip breakfast.

    Thanks HSF

  4. Thanks HSF nice one. Lemon water here I come. @least i can start from there.
    Dear tummy please be kind to me and just obey this clarion call I promise not to fill you with junk again. SO HELP ME GOD

  5. I was a size 8 when I had babby number one, I later grew into a size 14. Need I say how miserable I was.

    I did the forever clean 9 diet for 9 days and I got to a size 12.

    I'm preggy with baby number 2 now. Hopefully I won't be as big as a size 14, however I plan to get back to size 10 when I'm done having my baby.

    I just dream of the crazy shopping I'd do when I'm back to my dream size with flat belly. Clare

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
