My Super Fun Healthy Breakfast!


The picture on the left was either taken late last year. The one of the right was taken last weekend. Although as of when I went on a diet I'd gotten bigger than I was on the left, as you can see I haven't lost that much weight. I'm taking my weight loss very easy, making sure I don't do anything drastic or starve myself. I don't want to lose too much weight and frankly I'm not sure I want to lose much else. I'm big-boned and the Creator never intended for me to be slim or skinny. But more importantly I'm losing my pear shape and that's honestly frightful. Being a big woman, it means a lot to me that I have a pear shape, but now I wear some clothes and I don't see hips! I can't have that. Lol. 

Well it's Sunday and I wanted to do something fun for breakfast. Like I said I'm taking my diet very easy, if I really wanted to I would have lost an additional 10kg or more by now, but then the chances of me falling off the wagon would be higher. Taking it easy means I still get to enjoy fun meals, eat chocolates but in tiny bits, eat cakes and biscuits too, in tiny bits. Also it means that I can make my meals fun. 

This is imperative because if you go on a very strict diet (as I once did) and cut every "naughty" thing out (as I once did), you're more likely to have sugar/crab cravings and the minute you cave in you might go on a binge and find yourself eating bars of chocolates, large chunks of cake or a small pot or rice. And then end up gaining even more weight than you lost (as I did. LOL). 

This way you're still able to indulge your sweet toothe but stay very healthy. 

I missed having French toast, haven't had any since I went on a diet, this morning I asked myself why not? After all I had all the condiments for French toast. I used

2 slices of wheat bread
2 eggs (egg whites only)
Milk (skimmed)
Brown sugar
I pinch of salt
1/2 tsp of Cameroon pepper

For my smoothie I simply used a few slices of pineapples, watermelon, a bunch of seedless grapes, half an apple and 3 tbsp non-fat yoghurt mix. 

Voila! If you want something really moist you might want to try it with syrup, but it was simply amazing just as is. The toast tasted just as good or maybe even better than if I'd made it with white bread. If you're on a diet, organic maple syrup is your best bet. Also the yoghurt mix turns your smoothie from basic juice to creamy strawberry milkshake! And it's still very low fat! The mix might be a bit pricey, and it's actually meant for making your own yoghurt but I use mine for smoothies, not a yoghurt fan. 

*remember portion is key. Two slices of wheat bread is just fine. And this is particularly filling because it's heavier, and the rich smoothie also fills you up. 

Ok guys, that's that. 

Please if you've got tips for healthy fun meals, share them with me here. Thank you. 


  1. Wait Thelma 2 slices of bread? I don't think I I can oh.

  2. @ xx. Do you plan on finishing the entire bread. LOl.

    Toast bread is quite heavy, (wheat especially) ... healthy food is still boring, but it's a better choice than frying your eggs with oil and eating bromate filled agege bread.

  3. Smoothie looks nice and healthy choices of food too. Best wishes with your goals.

  4. Now am hungry, Thelma, am in love with the new look

  5. Now am hungry, Thelma, am in love with the new look

  6. Wait... So after all those things it's that small food that came out. Mba nu.

    1. Lol Memphis....negodu gini? NRI o n'eri? Hahaha.... Nwaga nu Thelma Weldon o!

    2. Lmao! Steele and Memphis, una wan chop the whole loaf?

      Thelma I want to be like you. I do understand the fear of losing the hips too. Everytime I lose weight, my bumbum disappears sam! Very frustrating sumtin.

  7. Lol@bumbum disappears..
    That means we that don't have any in the first place,once we lose weight it is

    Whatever you are doing,it is really working. You look great.

  8. I like the smoothie blend, amma try it! Plus you look long as the belly is flat every other can remain as is :-)

  9. I thought I was the only one whose hips disappears. This happens when I fast, when I'm sick or really disturbed. Why not some other place?

  10. You look nice.


  11. You look nice Tee, but nnem mbanu that breakfast is small. I would have finish eating before I leave the kitchen, so which one get to the dinning table?

    1. Hahahahahaaaa! As in ehn!

      Hmnnn... me i'm enjoying my super unhealthy breakfast: hollandia yogurt(tea substitute), bread laced with plenty mayo, vegetables, butter and egg, frank roll(bread and sausage) and scotch egg. *clears throat*
      70 days wie soon start. Let me enjoy the life of my head before then abeg!
      *side eyes @ memphis* don't even say it!

      Meanwhile Thelma... did you work out... cuz i'm wondering how you lost the arm.
      When I went on retreats, I realized that my bum/hips went down considerably(my skirts got big.. that's how I noticed) and maybe my chubby cheeks went down a bit too. But my neck and arms... little or no difference. so i'm wondering how you achieved that by just sticking to your diet.
      Did you work out? How did you lose weight proportionally like that, your arms, your hips et al... please do tell!!!!

    2. Hahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha! So you like food?

    3. Ahn ahn! Anon is noh fia oooo! Don't we all like food?! You inclusive! *shines teeth*
      I mean don't you think it's unfair for food not to be liked. Heheheee... try starving for 18hours and see how important food is to ALL of us. we don't like it enough sef! Lool!

  12. Thelms you look great! You can do weighted squats so your hips and bum doesn't move when you lose weight everywhere else. Portion control and clean eating is key, abs are made in the kitchen.

  13. @ T, biko like you said, that is enough. Don't lose more. O zu go biko!!

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?

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
