Week 1: Huffing and puffing

June 3, 2017 Emma M 0

I embarked on a new fitness journey which starts from where the previous one left me to wherever this one will leave me. Week one has been dreadfully hard. It has been a while since I was exercising regularly and eating healthy, so as you can imagine it wasn’t easy to get back on the 🏇 horse. I went through the eating part swiftly as possible with lots of veggies […]

Into the lion’s den

May 10, 2017 Emma M 0

(Fiction) A toddler wandered into the lion’s den once upon a time. No one knows how this happened and no one knows why she was out there all alone to begin with. What is known however is that wandering into the lion’s den could be the only thing that changed her life for the better. Now, as she walked in the scorching safari she found herself walking into a cave. […]

They were yet to run.

If I had told these shoes the day I brought them home that they were going to help me move from a size 44 to a size 36, they would have been sceptical; and if I had told them after a month of wearing them, they would have flat out laughed at me with tears rolling while they roll on the ground in laughter.   You see; I wore these […]

My two weeks as a vegetarian

March 10, 2017 Emma M 0

So I decided that in order for my healthy weight-loss program to give me effective and quicker results I’m going to spend the next one year as a vegan. No meat, no processed foods and lots of veggies and fruits. That didn’t work out so well. I literally didn’t go beyond two weeks. I spent exactly one week and four days as a vegetarian. Don’t get me wrong, there’s apsolutely […]

The cold hard cement can teach you great lessons

November 13, 2016 Emma M 0

Sometimes in life one does not realize how bad things are becoming until you fall flat down with your face on the ground. Being young and naïve doesn’t help either when you are heading for dark dangerous areas. You see, I grew up under the guidance of a praying mother. She would pray about and for a lot of things; in my young state I couldn’t understand the devotion to […]

Peanut butter carrot muffins

November 6, 2016 Emma M 1

I love baked goodies and since I have been trying to follow a healthier lifestyle, I took it upon myself to experiment with recipes that might be slightly healthier than most store bought baked goods. This is my latest version of healthier muffins. This recipe made 21 muffins for me. Ingredients: 3 eggs 3 spoons of butter 1/2 cup of olive oil 1 1/2 cups of milk 3/4 cup of […]

Cold rainy days are for warm outings

September 10, 2016 Emma M 0

My greatest love when it’s cold. This time of the year is great in Pietermaritzburg, it is cool and the flowers and trees are beautiful. All looks so great but God knows I hate the unpredictable London-like weather. Despite heating up the room and a cup of soup, still feels like something is missing. I think it’s the memories of cold days when I was younger that make me feel […]
