Nona does the tango and plays tennis. TS has dance fever. Ms. Runchilde takes karate lessons. And your's truly is a hiking fanatic.
What do these women have in common? Besides the fact that they are four strong beautiful Black women that could snap mere mortals in two like a dry twig (don't know about you, but if I ever meet Dia / Runchilde I'm gonna be reeeeeeally nice)?
We all have found a way to combine fun and fitness into a formula for success. Exercise does not have to be a chore. In fact, the more you dislike it, the more excuses you make for not exercising, and poof! it's back to the cheeto's and tv.
But find something that you love and cannot wait to do, like dance or tennis, push a little harder so you get your cardio in, and WALA! There is your no nonsense, gee was that exercise workout routine. Try it! YOU CAN DO IT!!
I would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!! Course, mine can't be too happy, cuz I weigh in on the Tuesday after! What genius thought of that one? So far, I have dropped 3 more pounds for a total of 22 lbs since the start. Would like to get in the 2 - teens for weigh in - that was my goal. Sooo, eww I'm gonna be like those folks that you see in the afternoon on Thanksgiving, running or walking their dinner off! Guess I'm hooked!
Sorry to be so short - been battling the flu bug! But I got well just in time to cook dinner for the pack of ingrates that are passing themselves off as family members. Think I will cough all over the turkey......
Til next time!
