Mindset queen – Tribute to Dr Nkem Ezeilo

So we woke up that morning in the hotel. We were attending a program together. We were also on a squat challenge… along with more than 100 women who were with us on our ‘Whatsapp’ healthy lifestyle group.
I think the challenge for the day was to do 120 squats.

I recall getting to 80 and wanting to stop. I looked over to Nkem and she was still going on her squats with no sign of stopping. I said to myself, ‘If she can do the challenge despite her diagnosis, I too can.’ So I carried on with my squats.

And we completed the squats challenge for the day.
I remember saying to myself that if Nkem wasn’t here, I probably would have deferred the remaining 40 squats to evening and by evening, I might have forgotten due to the business of life and end up not completing my squats.
nkem-and-iYou see Nkem was like that….
She swept you along with her strength. When you were with her, you believed you could do ANYTHING!!
As time went on, I knew she was often in pain. I would glance across the table at her or watch her from the corner of my eye and marvel at how she could keep such a straight face despite what was going on in her body.
As we went from place to place, I insisted on hauling her luggage and mine but she would often laugh at me and say something like ‘I am ok oh!’ or ‘Don’t be silly, Ada.’

She spoke so much about the power of the mind. She believed that what the mind believed and focused on would be one’s reality. She would often say ‘Onye kwe, chi ya ekwe’ meaning ‘ If you agree, your maker will agree.’
5 years ago diagnosed with the most aggressive form of cancer. She fought it. She gave it her best shot. She truly believed she would pull through. She wanted her story to encourage the millions of people out there suffering from cancer.

She went to the wards and told other cancer sufferers ‘Look at me!! I was diagnosed with cancer more advanced than yours so please believe you will pull through.’ She spread light and hope through the wards.
‘I see why people die, Ada’ she once said to me, ‘The pain is so bad…so bad…that the person just decides “Right I have had enough” and they give up and die.’  I know she was close to that several times. But she stayed strong. She did her best. Her legacy lives on.
RIP Dr Nkem Ezeilo (05/02/1973 – 11/09/2016)

What’s the BIG deal about water?

Today think ‘water, water, water’ 😃

Aim at drinking 2 litres of water at least 💪
To know the exact amount you should drink, multiply your weight by 33mls eg if you weigh 100kg then you should be drinking 3.3litres per day.

Easy to do, easy not to do 😎

Not drinking water is like using the toilet and not flushing it 🙈

Let’s do it friends and you will see your health and even your brain function improve. 👌👌

Did you know that the brain is made up of about 80% water? Now you know why you have headaches and feel disoriented and stressed/depressed and lack clarity when you are dehydrated.😴

When your brain has enough water you will be able to think faster, be more focused, and experience greater clarity and creativity.💥💥

So carry that water bottle with you everywhere 👊

And if you struggle to drink water, try taking it flavoured with bits of fruits.

Make your own home flavoured water….much healthier than chemical-filled shop ones.

I’ve had 1 litre so far (10am) so feeling pretty pleased with myself…hahaha.
What about you?

I CHOOSE

Life is full of CHOICES!!Choosing to get ANGRY at being stopped YET AGAIN at the airport for extra checks for no reason at all (just random -the lady said. Would you like to see my underwear? I almost replied, seeing that everyother item on me was already in their basket….)

OR 

Choosing to be THANKFUL that checks are being made to keep us all safe from terrorists and other disgruntled and crazy folks out there.

I have the power to CHOOSE how I FEEL and REACT!

Have a lovely day!!

For our women….

Saw this,

Loved it,

Sharing it with you out there who is unhappy with your stretchmarks.

They are evidence that you participated in creating life!!!

So smile.

Hold your head high.

Shine your light.

Be the best you. Looking forward to the weekend.
Don’t be so busy saving the world that you don’t take care of you.

Hope you have a special moment caring for you this weekend ❤️

We should all definitely drink less!!

Lifestyle changes remain key in stopping a lot of the illnesses that are on the increase worldwide.

What will it take for you to reduce your drinking or even stop altogether?

A cancer diagnosis??

The Chief Medical Officer of UK has issued new guidelines on alcohol and the diseases it can cause. 

Take a look!

Prevention is better than cure!

  
  

The Slight Edge

The Slight Edge

Goodmorning Fabulous readers,
Last night I spent 1 hour reading a book called ‘Slight edge’.
I recommend it highly -it’s just a few pounds if you buy the kindle or eVersion of it.

The slight edge in a nutshell can be summarised as- if you have ever been successful at anything, look at what you did to be successful, repeat those steps and you WILL KEEP BEING SUCCESSFUL!!! It is that simple!
No mystery!
No catch!

I felt this was really relevant to healthcare professionals involved in helping people lead healthy lives and lose weight.

I support several women and men in my weight loss/healthy lifestyle program.
I teach my ladies (and gents!) this:

You have lost weight.
What did you do to lose weight?
What food choices did you make?
What type and amount of exercise did you do?

Just keep repeating the same steps and YOU WILL KEEP LOSING WEIGHT!!

No mystery nor magic!
Just continuing the same steps.
Repeat it today and tomorrow and the next….
In other words make it a lifestyle 👊
Have a fabulous day friends❤️

Hyperglycaemia 101


 Goodmorning Fabulousreaders

Welcome to class Healthy living 101 lol😀
Topic: Hyperglycaemia

Just a reminder about why we discourage foods with high glycemic values like processed carbohydrates such as frosted cornflakes and surgary drinks.

Please take a look at the charts above.

When you take high glycemic foods, they are immediately converted to GLUCOSE in the body (you might as well just eats up a plate of sugar, right?)🙈😅
This causes a massive glucose spike (HYPERGLYCAEMIA) in your blood stream. This is SOOO O O BAD for your blood vessels.
The hormone INSULIN swings into action to try and mop up all this glucose and you end up at the other end (HYPOGLYCAEMIA). This is also SOOO OOO BAD for your body and powerful cravings set in making you ravenously hungry, even though you ate not too long ago (that explains why you got so hungry just 2 hours after that massive plate of white rice, see?)🤔😏
Swings in BLOOD Glucose are dangerous for the body.
Aim to always eat foods with low glycemic value as they release sugar gently and keep you fuller for longer.
*Tip: Always eating a higher proportion of vegetables with any meal ensures that glucose in the meal is released slowly. So if you are having white rice (high glycemic value) ensure that you eat it with LOADS OF VEGETABLES.
Assignment S’ il vous plait 😂😂practicing my French here.
1. Search up on hyperglycaemic foods.
Have a lovely day friends 😘😘😘😘😘

Hear what my client says:

“I was a good size 12-14 but after I had my son went to size 20-22! Everyone commented on how fat I looked, was called all sorts of derogatory names….but I always turned those comments into jokes.

This however was not a joke: The breathlessness, sleepless nights, bloating, taking antacids and muscle relaxants for my bladder on a daily basis were not fun at all!! Being a health professional I should have been embarrassed but I found all excuses to say how difficult losing weight was. I lied. Losing weight is so easy!!!!

I am so grateful for my union with Dr Adaeze- one of the most amazing people I have met in 2015! She has been very supportive and always very knowledgeable. God bless! I owe you sister!
I started my proper reset in early November. Resetting was the beginning of me loathing all bad foods, unhealthy carbs, cravings and appreciating a truly healthy meal. It was strange how much I started to crave for salads and soups, fish, chicken…instead of the usual poisons!

I now feel very healthy and light! NO MORE MEDICATION!!!

From 100kg, I am now 92kg in just 2 months!!

Resetting is the best gift you can give yourself. Being here is all what I needed to kick-start the weight loss.
I still have a very long way to go but how glad and lucky I am to be with you all! Without Dr Adaeze and everyone here, I wouldn’t have done it.” ~Healthcare professional

“All my clothes are now baggy and the old tight ones are now fitting me. For the first time in my suit career, I can now button my jacket easily” ~Professional in the Oil and Gas Industry.

“I started off at 101kg but now 88kg. I always had high blood pressure, fatigue due to anaemia and ulcer, so I had very ‘good’ excuses not to exercise but to eat.

Had my last 2 kids back to back and just never lost the baby fat but was left with a ‘kangaroo pouch’.

Now I am more alert. I used to always wake up tired and wanting to rest a bit more before getting up.That’s gone!! I literally wake up with a spring now” ~ mother of 4
