Happy New Year 2017 and welcome to my first post of the year! I do hope you had a restful holidays and are positive about the rest of the year! If you are reading this and wondering what harmattan is, then I take it that you are not familiar with the Nigerian/West Africa weather conditions. Harmattan season usually occurs from early December to Late February. It is characterized by dry and dusty wind blown from the Sahara desert over West Africa. Depending on its severity breathing can be quite difficult during this season, sometimes causing blisters in the nostrils. Since the start of this years harmattan, I have been down with a cough and common cold, both conditions are viral during this season. When I developed a cough I had immediately walked in to a pharmacy to pick up some cough syrup (which I ended up using once) as I did not want my baby to contract it. The pharmacist had recommended that I buy some antibiotics (Antibiotics are given liberally in Nigeria) and I probably would have bought it if not for its high price tag. I thought to myself "No thank you, I'll go look for some home remedies to make me well!" I did just that and after doing some research and seeking advice from my dad, I found the following five ingredients life saving:

Hello Fitfam, a New Year is fast approaching and many of us would be rewriting our fitness goals for the year 2017. One question many of my clients ask is where to buy fitness equipment/accessories in Nigeria. I, like some of my clients, stock up on fitness gear when I travel overseas. Even when I do not travel, I would order from US or UK stores and have them shipped to me. It was not until when I was organizing my last years end of year fitness party and needed to urgently get some fitness items that I realized that I could buy quite a number of them in the comfort of my home using Konga. I was aware of a few stores in Surulere and Victoria Island but getting there was a hassle for me and sometimes I get there and do not even find what I need (wasted time and fuel!).
Stretch marks are most times synonymous with pregnancy. Many women dread and suffer from stretch marks during pregnancy, some women have them on the stomach, breast, hips or back. During my antenatal classes, I heard all sorts of advice from not scratching my tummy when it itches to avoid stretch marks to applying certain oils on your tummy even before you get the good news of pregnancy! Sure there are loads of information on the internet on ways to prevent stretch marks, but I'm not here to repeat these. I'm only going to provide what worked for me as I did not get a single stretch mark during my just concluded pregnancy.
