My Other Passion


Do you mind if I venture off topic for a moment? I want to talk a little about my other passion.

I would call my life kind of challenging. I have a lot going on right now, and I thank God for giving me the strength to get from point A to point B. I also thank my body.  Remember the saying be good to your body and your body will be good to you? Because I have so many things to do in between waking up and going to bed, I try to do my best in the health and fitness area.When I eat junk food and fried foods, it takes a toll on my energy. Of course, I have my weaknesses like oreos and anything that’s bread, but I’m seeking counseling(jk). If you’re on a budget or have limited time, here are some tips.

  • No Gym, No Problem: Before you spend $40/month on a membership, check out other alternatives to getting your sexy back. I alternate between Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30, Jillian Micheal’s 6-Week 6-Pack, Simply Yoga App, and Nike Training Club App. Social media sites like Pinterest and Instagram are full of at-home workouts.
  • Break the Fast: I know you’ve heard this before, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, breakfast doesn’t have to be “breakfast” food. My breakfast is sometimes tilapia, spinach and sweet potato. Other days I’ll have a wheat waffle, eggs, fruit bowl and a smoothie. Mix it up so you don’t get bored.
  • H20 is the Way to Go: Water is good for plants, but it’s great for you! I believe 8 glasses is the recommended amount.

I usually start my days at 6am, and end them at about midnight. I would not be able to do this without having a healthy lifestyle.  I love health and fitness, but balance is very important. Try not to deprive yourself of the things you love. It’s all about moderation.
