“Well I believe only if these children who are joining hands are not hungry, have had a good night’s sleep and a decent home, and have received the best education and the best health care, they will be able to say that Dr. King’s dream has really come true.” - #TchanoriKone#BlackGirlMagic#Repost @goodmorningamerica

Our #WCW goes to this unstoppable, determined mama @akioyaamina. I met her in one of the female group on Facebook #womenencouragingwomen . Read below what she said. If she can do it, you too can. She didn't just loose weight but in the process did some walk /run challenges and won some amazing medals. Swipe to see for your self..... Well done mama 💪💪😘😘 2017: MY YEAR OF KEEPING FIT
GRIT! TENACITY! DETERMINATION!
I started exercising in August 2015, after so much prodding and pushing, I hated walking any distance further than my bedroom to the kitchen!
I took very small baby steps then, 2-3km daily, for over a year!
I belong to 2 all-female fitness groups on Facebook, that have some super exciting and inspiring Challenges every month! The women there are amazing and very encouraging!
Last year, we had a Challenge to walk/jog/run 2017km to mark the year 2017!
Me,that had never walked 500km before!
But I love being dared! I took it up and by December, I reached the goal!
So last year, I walked more than 2017km! Chai!
I got 3 medals in 2016 & 4 more in 2017!
I'm grateful to God because I never earned any medal in sports as a child!
God is great! I hope to earn more this year!
My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I intend to take good care of it!
Exercise is good! Whether you want to lose weight like me, or just to keep fit, do some form of exercise daily. Start slowly, 20-30 minutes daily!
It keeps you healthier, happier & lighter!
Consistency & Commitment!
Patience & Perseverance!
Determination & Dedication!
Key word: DISCIPLINE!
Make 2018 count! Keep your body active!
Watch what you eat & live healthy.
Make your progress measurable!
I truly want to inspire someone to brave it and get up!
I have seen the difference between my pictures from 2014 & 2017!
Can you spot any?
(First of all, I'm not this skin tone. I'm darker 😊 it's just The lighting in my house affects my pictures) I'm like 89% broke so I can't afford the lavish life of branded face masks but my friend introduced me to turmeric face masks, a beauty treatment used widely in the South Asian culture. And it's moments like this I'm thankful that my mum uses turmeric as a seasoning. Cause I can also use it as a face mask for free😛 The active compound of turmeric is curcumin, a yellow pigment that has potent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied on acne- and pimple-prone skin, this active compound serves to eliminate the bacterial infection responsible for the acne breakouts, simultaneously soothing and healing the inflamed skin. Natural raw honey has anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties and is hygroscopic-effective skin moisturiser- because it attracts and holds water molecules and at the same time dries out bacteria,(making it antibacterial). Milk has lactic acid to soften dry, hard skin and reduce skin roughness. I also add a 2-3 drops of fresh lemon juice which helps naturally disinfect skin and remove excess oil. The acid gently exfoliates and cleanses oily skin, helps with hyperpigmentation so tones and evens. After waiting 15-20 mins, I wash my face. And follow up with my normal routine. I honestly just do the mask when I want really, but it's effective ❤ #brokegirlmagic#blackgirlmagic#congolese#rdc#congolaise#garnier#skinactive#palmers#sheabutter#cba#blackgirlblogger#basicbish#keepgoing#singlebraids#expressionhair#melanin#awkward#awkwardblackgirl#oilyskin#spotty#combinationskin#turmeric#turmericfaskmask#facialcare#faskmask#honey
