Results of a good Squat

A female’s backside is no doubt one beauty of life! It has been treasured through past generations… and it gets deeper with the realisation of its greatness and capabilities. Oh yes!  The booty can do and undo! Ok here is it. A woman’s body generally is a blessing from God. And the backside is another great entity of its own, no matter its shape or size. It is beautiful!

Squats are for all shapes and sizes

As a result of the increased likeness for the female backside, a lot of ways and mediums to further enhance its beauty are being introduced and carried out by women in various parts of the world. Some undergo  plastic surgeries, others take very hard drugs, injections – which have life threatening side effects. But today an exercise for this purpose has been introduced – Squats! According to those who have tried this, it does wonders!

The Squat

THE SQUAT
is a full body exercise that trains primarily the muscles of the thighs, hips and buttocks, as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. Squats are considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs and buttocks, as well as developing core strength. Basically, the lower back, the upper back, the abdominals, the trunk muscles, the costal muscles, and the shoulders and arms are all essential to the exercise and thus are trained when squatting with the proper form

Squat exercises are great for a total lower body workout. They effectively work most of the major muscles of the butt, hips and thighs. Squats are also a versatile exercise. They can be done in almost any location, your courtyard, front porch, even in your bedroom, with or without the use of weights or equipment!

Squats helps in toning the Legs, lifting the Butt, strengthening the core muscles of the lower body as it engages the abdominal and back muscles – which gives a tighter, flatter abdomen and a stronger lower back – thereby lifting the butt – It also increases flexibility

Here is a spreadsheet for this exercise

Mind you, you have to have a ‘backside’ to start with. If you have a flat behind you probably shouldn’t try this, squats aren’t for everyone. It does not magical give you a big butt! It firms and uplifts the one you already have. Think of it like makeup. Makeup to a naturally pretty face. Yeah, you got the picture!

Evidence of good Squats

Now, Squats isn’t as easy as it sounds, during the early stages, you’ll certainly encounter difficulties in moving your lower body parts, aches all over your body… I’m not trying to discourage you, but nothing good comes easy right? Do not try this exercise if you’re going to stop half way through, the results will only get you mad! But I bet you like what you see on Tv shows and music videos… of course you do!

The Ills of Social Networking…

The world is indeed a global village. And it only gets better. For every thing that has advantages must have disadvantages right? Sometime back we had networks like  Facebook, hi5, Perspot, NaNaija etc… & very few people had access to computers & mobile phones (which could access the net for that matter) they was less traffic on these networks, & they weren’t a medium for social acceptance

But now technology has seized our world. We have such cool gadgets. Mobile phones of kinds, computers of better tastes, tablets & notebooks, & they’re affordable now! We have equally better social networks – Twitter,  Instagram, Keek, Vine, Path & other media sharing networks I might not have heard of.

For instance INSTAGRAM. How did this fun app full of pretty pictures shape-shift into an ugly addiction? The underlying source is in our DNA; it’s human nature to want to be accepted by our community, a characteristic that has been manipulated since Facebook’s thumbs-up came into our lives.

Even the most confident person is susceptible to placing too much importance on the trade of approval and rejection in the social media world. Whether you admit it or not, there is some sting in getting only one or two engaged comments or likes on an impassioned status update or a photo of your new hairdo or outfit that you’re not comfortable with yet. In the end, we just want to be approved of by our peers and failure for this gets one depressed

Paradoxically, social media can sometimes actually put distance between us and our friends or our experiences, under the guise of connectedness. A birthday cake or present in the past have become uninspired well wishes on a digital wall. What rudeness!

Constantly keeping tabs on friends through their facebook wall or twitter time line takes the place of catching up face-to-face because you already know everything that’s been going on with them (some parents even have accounts on these networks to keep tabs on their kids instead of sitting them down and talking to them after dinner-the old fashioned way) Shows & events become a battle to capture the moment for your instagram to prove how amazing it was instead of savouring a beautiful moment you might never get again!

So what ever happened to taking a picture just for yourself, for your better half, maybe to put into a frame and place on your Tv stand or desk in the office? Better still what happened to just looking at something and enjoying it and having that be enough?

It gets worse. People reveal too much about themselves. No one needs to know where you’re going to “turn up” tonight, or your shapeless bank account (btw the truly rich people are so busy spending their money that they don’t have time to tweet about it. Remember what they say about empty vessels? Yeah) Or which country you plan to vacay in. Seriously?

How about your security, you update your 7, 942 followers about your whereabouts 247. Or maybe your front door which is bad, or that you’re home alone… (& you were rude to some cultists in your school sometime ago)… Careful people!

Everyone is guilty of these allegations… Me, you, everybody. Personally I give my self a break from these social networks sometimes to prove to myself I’m not yet an addict. Oh well…

A.W.O.L

So my last post was in January last year. Errr okay! Just when I thought I found a hobby as a Blogger. I still haven’t discovered myself 😦 I wonder when my next post will be… maybe 2015. But I won’t entirely blame myself, I mean this is too tasking a hobby, perhaps a hobby should be something you enjoy doing right? And I need to be the only one in that field, I mean they are so many Bloggers.

Maybe it’s not so bad after all.

Facial Skin

The skin is the most important part of the human body, especially to the females, this is the part people take note of upon meeting! A smooth, spotless, even toned facial skin exudes beauty beyond measure, A spotty, rough, face with lots of pimples & blemishes gives people a negative impression about you!

The facial skin does a lot for us, and thus needs lots and lots of care. Due to exposure to sunlight & germs, the skin tends to be a bit sensitive at times, which makes it even more difficult to manage! Look at your face as your best asset, be it your car, laptop, mobile phone… Or even a best friend! Whatever it is that means the world to you, In order to understand it you need to be Patient & Persistent! Sometimes it seams no facial scrub or cleanser works for you! Wrong! There’s something you’re doing wrong!

In order to achieve the perfect facial skin, one should cleanse the face regularly – in the morning & at night, most people find that quite hectic, in that case the night time is fine! Remember never to go to bed with your makeup on! That’s a big No No! It is good to also exfoliate, moisturize and use the sunscreen! This is necessary as most products while cleansing sucks up your natural facial oil… The moisturizer helps to bring back that lost oil which is very well needed!

Believe it or not! Water & sleep really works wonders for the skin most especially the facial skin! Did u ever hear of the old time cliché “Beauty Sleep”? While asleep, the body produces chemicals that helps fight germs that causes pimples and blemishes… This means the longer you sleep, the more time your body has to fight these germs… Have you ever noticed how that one single pimple growing mysteriously disappeared overnight?!

It is important to note that the key to success here is CONSISTENCY! A lot of us have a problem with that! You shouldn’t stop using a product because you’re not seeing results… Its not magic! If you have issues in getting products that work on you, you should visit a dermatologist to find out what skin type you’ve got.

Finally, when you start seeing results, don’t hurriedly stop use of products, you have to make it a habit, else you’ll find yourself back to where you started… Unless you can stay out of sun/harsh weather and germs forever! Jk! (I’m not!)

NOTE: This does not apply only to the ladies… Guys inclusive! Yeah I said it! I know it sounds weird cleansing, exfoliating & moisturising bla bla bla! But I think we have to do something about your shave bumps! Don’t you think?

Love Always

LIFE…

Hey you! Its been ages! Let me officially wish you guys a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yea I know most of you might say the year’s almost over, oh well…

Within the past few weeks, a lot has happened to me (please don’t ask!) But I’m grateful to GOD that I’m ALIVE, you should be thankful too coz you only got one life!

Here’s something I have to share with you… I hope it inspires most of you the way it did me!

There was a blind girl that hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, “If I could see the world, I’d marry you”. One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, “Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?” The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at him for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying; “Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.”

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what our life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Today before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who cant speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food -Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children – Think of someone who desires children but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep – Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive -Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another -Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – put a smile on your face and thank GOD you’re ALIVE!!!

THE WORD “LOVE”

LOVE…
Hello blogworld… Its the 1st day of December, I smell christmas yippee! I’m excited about this & I know you are too!

We all know this is a season for LOVE! Love like you feel it! It could be in exchange of gifts, in giving of alms, just show some love!

Now what is love? Over the years, they’ve been literally thousands of definitions of love, it grows and changes with time, my point is we don’t have to define it via another person’s perception! Personally I believe love is FREEDOM…

As a result of this, I got a couple of people to give their opinion, here’s what they had to say:

‘I think love is overrated, but its a beautiful union if entered with a clean heart!’
Rachel, 21

Love is money!
Hemsy, 24

Love is peace and sharing of feelings.
Doshy, 21

Love is the eternal truth in the history of mankind!
Henry, 26

I think love is when you put someone’s feelings and priorities before yours.
Onyema, 30

Love is a sweet feeling that gives constant erection!
Gilakin, 38

Love is a feeling you can’t control!
Deola, 22

Love is like a cigarette, it starts with a spark but ends in ashes!
Val, 29

Love is giving someone the opportunity to break your heart!
Hembadoon, 19

Love is the silliest of all emotions which gives a strong lasting feeling of euphoria!
Eljon, 26

Love is giving her flowers for no reason & telling her she looks beautiful when she doesn’t!
Mega, 25

Love is two bodies living in one soul
Oche, 24

Love is sacrifice!
Elemcee, 26

A strong feeling about a person that makes u overlook their flaws & accept their excesses
Princess, 21

That’s it! But hey, no matter what you think best defines it, just show somebody love this season!!!
Peace!
