EatWell with RD Adoma

It is midway through the year already and at the beginning of each year we make resolutions to eat more healthfully and lose weight, but as the days turn into months, we lose our steam along the way. If you have trouble keeping your resolutions or meeting your health goals, create a solid plan that sets you up for success in these months left.

Follow these tips to make the rest of 2020 count;

  • Start by Assessing Your Food Choices and Lifestyle

Monitor what you eat and drink and how physically active you can be so you can identify behaviors you would like to change.

  • One Large Goal Can Seem Overwhelming

Break bigger food goals into smaller, more specific goals and include a list of realistic changes in your daily routine to achieve these goals. For example, be more precise, break big and vague goals like “I will exercise better” into littler and more definite goals like “I will take a walk for about 30mins a day.” Remember, while your goals should be challenging, they should also be attainable.

  • Make Sure the Goals You Set Are Measurable

The goals must provide answers to “How much?” or “How many?” so you can easily monitor and follow your progress. Evaluate your progress every week or two, and update your plan based upon your current progress or circumstances. Make sure you are giving yourself enough time to achieve each smaller goal so you are not discouraged if you haven’t met them.

  • Seek Help from a Qualified Health Professional

A registered dietitian is your best source of reliable and up-to-date food and nutrition information. An RD can also help you determine measurable and achievable goals, as well as a plan to help you achieve them and support along the way.

When I die


Many people have written poems about death- with deep statements about appreciating life while you have it. This isn’t one of them. Besides we all know I am not a poet- I tell stories. It is just something that popped in my head after I saw this pictureon Nana Kofi Acquah’s timeline. You should go and see his photo exhibition at Alliance Francaise- ‘Don’t call me beautiful’. Intriguing name, isn’t it? Anyway, on to my impromptu poem😊

When I die, you should cry.

At least I’d be flattered if you did.

For those of you whose tear ducts are on retirement, you can do a moment of silence. That also works.

I am a crybaby- I plan to cry when I am saying my vows, when I first learn that I am pregnant, when I get my first car (I love troskis but we must move on), when I…

I almost called..


Inspired by a song I accidentally heard today..


I almost called today

To say I was sorry

But I didn’t have the nerve to,

Or maybe it was pride.

I can’t tell the difference these days.

I know I should have called earlier,

But there were too many barriers-

Your mother, our many differences,

The things we both said to each other that I know we didn’t mean.

It’s a lot to work through, isn’t it?

I hope you know I miss you.

I won’t admit it to your face, but I hope you can sense it- how empty my life is without you in it.

You used to know me so well, so I am sure you can imagine how much I do miss you.

Every time I use the Haatso-Dome route, I think of you and what could have been.

Do you remember we used to fantasize…

Three is a crowd Part 2


Author’s note: You can catch up on the first part of this story right here!


Sedinam’s eyes were fixed on the fishermen who were mending their nets. ‘I wish it was that easy to fix this mess’, she thought to herself wistfully. She had been sitting at the seashore all day, watching the waves battle with one another, thinking and crying- mostly crying. Every time she thought about the look on Nii Nortey’s face that day, she felt queasy. The wind blew again, forcing her to readjust her shawl around her shoulders. She took off her sunglasses and looked at her watch. It was time to leave and she still had no idea what she was going to do.

1st year

I was sitting in the lecture room, looking at that girl sitting next to me. She was my ‘best friend’. She had nice hair, humble and was very beautiful. I wish I could tell her that I loved her so much, but I didn’t want to break the bond. After lectures, she walked to me, borrowed some notes of the previous class hugged and pecked me goodbye.

I wish I told her, I wish she knew

That I wanted us to be more than just friends

I loved her, but I was shy

I didn’t know why.

2nd year

My phone rang, it was her; she called me to tell me how much she was hurt. Her boyfriend just broke her heart. She asked me to go keep her company. I went to see her; coz she was my best friend. As I sat next to…

The Pursuit of Happiness; the son’s perspective.


still-of-jaden-smith-in-the-pursuit-of-happyness-(2006)-large-pictureThe pursuit of happiness; it’s an old movie i believe everyone should watch. A movie filled with many many life lessons.

I personally believe everyone who wasn’t born with a silver spoon in their mouths goes through that same pursuit. It’s just a tard milder or sometimes tougher, in different packages.

However this post isn’t about the movie, though it is to some extent. I got the opportunity to watch the movie again for the umpteenth time and it just occurred to me that, the movie was the father’s story but how would the movie have turned out if it were the son’s story?

Chris, (the dad) tried his very best to make his son happy, but never felt happy himself. who can blame him? Anytime he got the little moment of happiness, life threw a large ball of sadness at him, but his son, Christopher, I am quite sure…
