As An African American Woman

Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you all! I had a wonderful weekend. I had sometime to myself on Saturday (No kids so I got a lot done). On Sunday I was able to have a lovely father’s day lunch celebrating my husband, father, grandfather, and uncles. I feel so grateful for the men in my life. It was nice to be able to spend time with them and my family.

This week I released my official “Save the Date” for my upcoming webinar titled, “Let’s Talk About It!” African American Women & Health. I am excited to combine my two passions, wellness and African American women, and present something to you guys that I am extremely proud of. As an African American woman it really bothers me when I go online to look up statistics regarding our health, and find that we have the highest numbers in the worst areas. Something definitely needs to change.

Not only am I darkened by the country wide statistics, but I know first hand by just looking around in my own family, how serious the situation is. I have family members with hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Although they are doing their best to thrive with these conditions, where was the concern for prevention in the first place?

This webinar is a way of me taking the first step in my life (and hopefully lives around the country) to support the women in my family and my community to help them live a healthier life. Won’t you join me?

Let’s Talk About It! African American Women & Health webinar is on Thursday, July 11th at 7PM PST via Zoom.us. If you know anyone who may benefit from this special event please have them sign up by emailing wellanfitcoaching@gmail.com.

I look forward to seeing you there as well. Together we can support each other, and make change happen!

Be well you guys!

#Fitmom

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday to all of you! I am very glad that this day is finally coming to an end. Not that it was long or anything. I am just ready to enjoy my sleep! Lol! Coming home to my children is one of the best feelings in the world, but somedays (like today) there is a lot of Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! They ask for me when I am taking a shower. They ask for me when I use the restroom. They will walk right past my husband and ask me something that they could have asked him! It is annoying, but at the same time it is very flattering that they think that highly of me.

At the end of 2017 I released my book, “I Am Well & Fit: Wellness Tips for the Busy Adult From a Fit Mom.” In the book I talk quite a bit of the challenges I face daily being a wife, friend, sister, daughter, and of course a mom. I try my best to balance all of these “hats” everyday. One of the best roles though is being a mom. A fit mom at that. Being a fit mom means more to me than just a mom that exercises and is “hot.” It is how I take care of myself. It is how I take time for me. It is how I still choose to persue my dreams despite being a mother of three.

I have created a wellness routine that works for me. It is a routine that helps me recenter my life everyday. Let’s be honest, if my cup isn’t full, I won’t have anything to give anyone else. As a woman we can sometimes feel guilty for taking care of ourselves first, but I encourage you to do so. Once you take control of you, sky is the limit! Even when I feel down I can turn to my routine, and I almost always feel better, recharged, and ready to move forward.

If you are a woman. More specifically if you are a mom, I encourage you to explore what makes you at #fitmom. Is it just exercise, or do you agree with me that it is so much more? Let me know in the comments what you conclude for your own life. I hope this encourages a woman just like me today.

Be well you guys!

Fit For Thought

One of my favorite types of movement (beside running of course) is dance, and I truly believe there’s magic in it. It lifts your spirits by making you laugh or cry. It makes me feel sexy but also inspired. I love it because you can do it by yourself or with others, and if you’re like me you are getting double exercise because I sing and dance at the same time! Whether you are working it on dance floor or watching a performance the movement of dance is spirit moving in my opinion. I dare you to try it tomorrow in your own time. It will make you feel amazing! πŸŒΏπŸ’–πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½ #healingthroughmovement

5 Days of Encouragement

Too often the day goes by without us sharing a kind word with anyone. The best was to lift yourself up is by starting with others. Giving encouragement to those in need is one of the most rewarding actions that you can do. So get to it! It will go along way! πŸŒΏπŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏽

Fit For Thought: 5 Days To Encourage Others

Sometimes it can be so hard to motivate yourself let alone others, but this week let’s be each other’s support system. Pick one (or more) person per day to lift up and encourage them to continue their goals. You’ll find that it is very contagious, and while you are doing it you will stay motivated yourself. Good vibes are always reciprocated!
