May 30, 2014

I remember all those age defying beauties that I studied carefully on the pages of Essence and Ebony magazine in years past. When asked how they managed to look so young they all said limited or no sugar intake. Some even said that they never touch white flour. With a nation on a sugar high […]

Why Women should lift weights Hey guys, as I seek motivation to “Turn Up’ the weights I came across this article that has added to my inspiration. I’m a reader by nature and need to find a reason to do everything, although I’m self motivated, cardio has always been my “go to”, because it’s so […]

I don’t know about you but my “go to” is cardio. I literally have to make myself hit the weights even though I know how important resistance training is. There is always a sense of dread for me with weight training. I guess it requires more thought and effort. Begrudgingly I make the effort because […]

My sister and I tried the Brazil Butt lift, another Beachbody program, back in 2011 because we wanted our butts to look round and tight as we rocked our jeans and boots. Yep it was a good feeling to know that you’re flying high on anther workout trip without taking the actual flight. With the […]
