Rest

The last weekend was a very unique one for me. My weekends are usually characterised by gyming, swimming, (lots of) cooking, church activities and TV. But the last weekend was totally different, I managed to do one hour session at the gym and spent the entire weekend sleeping – I mean total REST. I could…

Hard Work, Works

Wow! It is good to resume writing after a long break. I have alot to share, many lessons I have picked along the line. I had a catch up with my Line Manager earlier in the week, he shared a popular quote from Denzel Washington – Hard work, works! You will agree with me that…

April….

Today at the gym, my instructor asked me to do some belly exercise as I was about to leave the gym. Like an obedient child, I mounted the bench to do some sit-ups. After 10 sit-ups, I asked – “How many sit-ups in a lap”. He replied: Twenty (20). I added, “How many laps am…

ME, MYSELF and I

I need to move from 95kg to 75kg in order to have the perfect BMI. I have lost 7kg already…currently  88kg. The interesting thing is people have started commenting: Your…

Iruks…

Yesterday was International Women’s day, for some special reasons I was very conscious of this remarkable day compared to previous years. I spent some part of the day thinking of my career and the ladies that contributed to the success of the journey so far. I have been privileged to work with some outstanding female…

Lost

My country decides today! Everywhere was locked down, public places and shops locked – including my gym. It seems I am getting addicted to this fitness thingy – guess it is a good addiction; even after 100 squats in the morning, I still decided to have a walk in the evening. My plan was to…

Instructor…

I was on a bike at the gym late this evening, this particular bike is unique, the screen board was quite far from me. I could not easily see the effect of my effort or change in momentum. My gym instructor comes regularly to adjust it and change the levels. I had to rely on…

Atmosphere

My session at the gym today was fun, I guess I was highly motivated because I am beginning to lose some pounds and my wife is giving positive comments. Vision 80kg is real, I cannot wait to share my before and after pictures. My neighbourhood is highly diverse, this affects almost every public place in…

Small Head Vs Big Tail

Working out at the gym today, amidst my sweaty face and body I noticed a fellow gym user. This elderly man reminded me of my father, he has similar gesticulation and mannerisms as my Dad. I smiled and travelled down memory lane, reminiscing over the good times we spent together. My Dad traveled out of…

What exactly are you Measuring?

I asked my colleague a sincere question yesterday, before he could answer my Boss passed by and we involved her in the conversation. This was the question and I will like you to answer. When I see some of my contemporaries’ profile on LinkedIn – I often feel like – Lanre, what have you been…

Food Poison

I believe in God unapologetically, the level of planning and systems built in human is phenomenal. I suffered food poisoning from yesterday evening till this morning. It started with a  mild fever, I was surprised because I am in touch with my body and was wondering why fever? I decided not to take any med…
