My not so good experience in a chiropractor’s office

June 13, 2014

I had never thought much about visiting a chiropractor. It’s something that had never crossed my mind until several weeks ago. I was enjoying an outdoor festival and was approached about a chiropractic screening with the promise of a free hydro massage so reluctantly I gave my information. A few days later I received a […]

Eliminating sugar may be the key to the fountain of youth.

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 […]

FED UP

May 9, 2014

While checking emails today I ran across one that I thought was just spam. Upon closer inspection I had run upon a rare gem. It was an email advertising a movie called FED UP. The movie is about revealing food industry lies.  Looks like we’ve been hoodwinked, bamboozled, and all at the sake of our […]

Why Women should lift weights

April 25, 2014

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 […]

Mission Accomplished

April 18, 2014

March, 30, 2014 marked the end of my 28 day journey on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I lost a total of 7 pounds and while that might not seem significant to most it made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. The more you weigh the more you […]

What’s your workout style?

February 21, 2014

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 […]

DO YOU NEED A BUTT LIFT?

February 7, 2014

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 […]

BAC Challenge # 3 – Your Personal State of the Union

January 29, 2014

Last night many of you took time to watch the State of the Union Address by President Obama. This got me to thinking…what would I have to say in my state of the union address? We all know that January is the time when many of us talk about resolutions and goals for the new […]

Health Alert for those over 40 and a Challenge

April 8, 2013

I recently learned of a form of cancer that is disporportionately affecting African Americans over 40 and the Elderly, it is called Plasmacytoma (or multiple mynoma if it morphs). It is very treatable if detected in its early stages. Unfortunately, most find it as a result of trying to solve another problem and the cancer […]

The Cardio Question & The Weighting Game

February 15, 2012

What is Cardio? Why should you have been doing a cardio workout ages ago? Cardio is short for Cardiovascular. This means that this exercise is meant to work out your heart. Why is this so necessary? Your heart is an organ and a muscle. You wouldn’t ask a 5-year old to open that incredibly frustrating, […]
