It’s been a week since I completed the Forever Living Clean 9 – and my intentions were to carry on with the clean eating.
However, it’s proved to be harder than I thought!
The first thing I was going to do, was continue with the protein shakes for breakfast and lunch.
The second thing I was going to do, was continue with the exercise.
So what’s the problem?
1. The Clean 9 pack only had enough of the shake mix for the nine days. So I decided to order some more from Jumia. I checked the status of my order five days after placing it – and it said my order was processing. Still. After FIVE days!
2. Vins was feverish on Tuesday after summer camp. Not just feverish. His fever went up and down from normal to 104 until Friday. Turns out it’s tonsillitis.
So I exercised until Wednesday and I was very careful about what I ate. But as the week progressed, I found it harder and harder to eat sensibly. Partly because I wasn’t exercising, and partly because I was at home with Vins the whole time. Thinking about different (and healthy) foods to eat has been difficult! I don’t like the milk here – so cereal is out of the question. I don’t eat seafood – so a bit of grilled fish or whatever is also out of the question. I’ve been sticking to vegetable stir fry (sometimes with tofu, sometimes with chicken) for lunch and dinner.
Ok, so the Jumia order… After feeling a bit irritated with the fact that my order was still processing, I cancelled it. I could have just called them and asked what was going on, but you know what – I couldn’t be bothered.
Then I remembered a comment left on one of my posts.
I called James (the commenter) on Wednesday to ask if he had the Forever Ultra Aminotein mix in chocolate (I’ve only ever had vanilla and really wanted to try the chocolate one). His price (N4000) is cheaper than it is on Jumia (N5500) and I wouldn’t have to pay for the delivery (N450) either! He said he could deliver it to me the same day – but I didn’t have cash at home and I couldn’t go to the ATM, so I asked him to deliver the next day. I told him I’d text him my address and the product I wanted.
I texted him. For some reason my SMS delivery messages haven’t been working for a while, so I didn’t know if he had received it or not.
On Thursday I didn’t hear from him – but didn’t really have the time to call since Vin’s temperature was up to 104 again and we were going to the doctor.
On Friday I called him again. It turns out he didn’t receive my text message and had misplaced my number. He said he’d emailed me as soon as we’d spoken on Wednesday. He had, but I hadn’t checked my mail.
Anyway, so on Saturday morning James rang and said that his partner would be delivering my protein shake that afternoon.
When his partner, Daniel, arrived – I saw that he’d brought the vanilla mix instead of the chocolate. He apologised profusely and said he’d go and exchange it for me right away. I told him not to worry about it, and that I’d take it anyway, but if he could please bring me the chocolate one on Monday (they don’t last long and I’d need them both anyway).
This afternoon, Sunday, James messaged me to apologise for the mix up and said that he and Daniel had decided to give me the chocolate mix for free! Hooray! It really is very kind of them – they don’t have to do that at all, and I really appreciate it.
If you’re looking to do the Clean 9 (James is selling it for N17000 (at the time of his comment) and I bought it on Jumia for N24000) and don’t know where to buy it from – look no further!

Here’s to Keeping It Up!
