    On a personal note. I haven't expressed anything about Brexit 🇬🇧🇪🇺❎❓ so far because to be honest, my page was no place for it and I'm not one to worry about something I haven't got control over anyway. I'll let it play out. I'll be fine either way. But by now I can safely say that the realities of Brexit have been a quite... sobering input to my life, even harsh, to suddenly be reminded that, well, to some extent at least, the country I'm in doesn't necessarily welcome people like me. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Recently the pin dropped and it triggered a sadness in me. It got me thinking about how I have forgotten I'm not really 'from' here, I have lived here so long. About how all my life, I really never have been at home. Half Igbo born in Poland, I experienced intense hostility before I even knew my skin colour was any different than others'. I came to Northern Ireland without even being able to speak English. And then in Nigeria I am seen as 'white' and hence I produce the same reactions any other foreigner would. .

    .
    But the sadness that I felt for a while, has turned into a joy of sorts. No, actually it's okay. This is exactly who I am thanks for reminding me. And I like it. I know I can make a home wherever I lay my hat. Although I do need to be somewhere I am proud that I really am from nowhere, belong to noone, that I can be at ease anywhere, that my mindset has shaped itself across despite and with many influences from many places. 🧘🏽‍♀️✨

    I feel at ease around people who don't think through a prism, who go out and explore, who have an open mindset. I explore cultures without blinders on. I'm proud to see every human for the energy they project towards me rather any label society puts on them, to see all humans and living beings the same no matter what skin or fur they have on the outside or what language they speak or where they're from or where they've been. 🕺🏋🏽‍♀️🐂🐁🧞,🐋🐰🐷🧜👷👸🏼

    I know that if everyone saw the world this way we would be fine, we wouldn't hurt each other or fight because really, we're all the same. And countries, races, borders, would only be words that don't mean much. ✌🏼🕊️

    Is counting calories necessary? Probably not no 🤔
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Do I recommend counting calories? Yes I do🤓
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    For the general public counting calories every day isn’t necessary although it’s a good way of getting things in control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Why do I recommend starting off by calorie counting?
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    - Makes you think more about what you’re eating therefore you can make better choices.
    - Makes you aware that you need to eat more/less for your goal.
    - Good for portion control.
    - Can plan out what your eating the next day so you aren’t eating out of convenience.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    After you’ve mastered all of this, you might figure that you don’t need to track everyday or even at all as you know how much you need to eat, and what foods you are going to consume🤩

    You know what they say about a Sunday well spent! We've got all you need to recover from a wild night out or if you're in the mood for something sin free. .
