Summer holidays are my favourites aside Christmas. This is the time I have to take time off work, spend more time with family, travel, eat and pamper myself as much as possible. So far, I spend my holidays shuttling between various cities in Nigeria, depending on where my siblings are at the time. Though I have #vacationgoals that entails plans to extend my travels, beyond Nigeria… work in progress.
This year, I spent vacation in Abuja. I must say that as usual, it was great fun… amidst birthdays, lunch outings, shopping, fun times at recreation centres, etc. A must mention is the feeling of not having to wake up by 5:00am for work… the stress of dealing with staff and running a business (not that I’m not grateful, but you know what I mean…the rest is essential). So, it’s been an exciting time…
Self-Confidence is quite essential in our daily life. For some time now, I’ve been feeling like all my efforts towards weightloss haven’t been yielding much: however, I decided to cut myself some slack. Hello… “You just had a baby.” I would consciously remind myself. Besides, you are still going to have another one… just take it easy and let things unfold gradually.
Nevertheless… in fact, this vacation gave me time or I’d say… the opportunity to take a step back and acknowledge my strong features. I mean, I am not bad for a ‘1-kid’ new mom plus I love the way I look in images with/without makeup. So my self-confidence is boosted. While I’m setting targets for a highly vegan diet + exercises for the next quarter, I’m going to keep loving myself and doing me.
I’m wearing: Fast Fish Pants, Random Tees and converse (I think it’s #madeinNigeria – good stuff)
