Birthdays Bring Focus

I took this past week off to celebrate my 34th birthday and to just get away from the J.O.B..  I was really blessed to spend time with my friends and family.  However, today I wanted to share a few things with you that I will be focusing on before I turn 35.

Shake Up the Summer and Move Something

June is here which means it’s my birthday month! I took the week off after having to work on my birthday last year! June is a popular month for vacations, family reunions, camps, etc. You already know this Millennial believes everyone should take their vacation days.  Today we are talking staying active in the summer months even with all the activities!

Shake Up the Summer & Move Something

Times have changed so much from when I was child.  We used to love to play outside and generally craved physical activities.  Now there is so much technology to warp our minds that our desires often leave us super sedentary.  Planning some activities to move your body will prevent gaining lazy weight over the summer!

My Biggest Fear When I First Started Teaching Les Mills BODYCOMBAT

There are so many things that a new instructor or a seasoned instructor teaching a new program may worry about.  I wrote a lengthy post last year on tips for fitness instructors.

I’m excited that after being on the market for 2 years, we have 3 seasoned Les Mills instructors that just got trained for Les Mills Grit & will be coaching 30 min HIIT workouts this summer!  I am sure those ladies will have their own set of inner fear that we won’t be able to see as outsiders, but I’m sure it won’t be the same as mine was a few years ago…

Before I became a BODYCOMBAT instructor I was die hard in the class, but there is one thing I feared the most!

A Review of Les Mills BODYCOMBAT 63 Fight the Resistance

I spent the month of April launching the “revolutionary” Les Mills BODYCOMBAT 63! At the time of this review, I’ve taught or taken this release about 10 times!  BODYCOMBAT as you may know, is the fiercely energetic mixed martial arts inspired cardio workout choreographed by international exercise experts!  This release in particular was revolutionary with moves and quite cleverly embedded with the track “Edge of a Revolution”! In honor, my BODY COMBAT 63 antics…

The Real World Sorority Girls: 14 Years a Delta

If your circle consists of people that are members of the NPHC, your March and April social media timelines were probably full of pictures wishing themselves and sorority/fraternity sisters/brothers a happy anniversary! I am no different!  Today is our Deltaversary and it’s been an amazing 14 years!

14 Years a Delta

On my 102nd Founders Day, 5 women were expelled from our sorority for their participation in the VH1 show Sorority girls.

I saw several posts on social media referencing the expulsion of the 5 women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as unreasonable.

As a Diamond Life Member (National Member dues paid for a lifetime) who has been active locally EVERY year since I crossed in 2001 except for the 2 years of course work in pharmacy school, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE EXPULSION! #ByeFelecia Continue reading

Exercise Pregnancy Dos and Don’ts of Les Mills Group Fitness Program

Every quarter, Les Mills Group Fitness shares with instructors some educational tips to help us  better execute our programs! I  was super elated to see this subject matter because one of my fitness SHEroes is currently pregnant and maintained her vigorous instructor schedule for quite a while.

I thought participants would greatly appreciate this information. I’ve seen mommies to be phase in out of programs before and after their pregnancies! I just love to see women continue their fitness efforts while pregnant!

So heres the 411 straight from the international group fitness gurus!

If You Struggle With Ingrown Toe Nails, Consider a Matrixectomy

Cheers to the post that accidentally got published last weekend when I was aberrantly working off my home desktop instead of my MacBook Air! Here is the post in its completion :) ….

In 2011, I saw my Podiatrist about the aggravation of what I thought to be ingrown toe nails.  At that time, she cut them down for me and recommended I let the nail technician keep them cut down and come back if I had any more problems.

I began to notice them hurting more than usual most of last year. With my intense group fitness schedule and standing on my feet all day at work my toes had really started to hurt anytime I “dinged” them the wrong way. I finally went back to my Podiatrist and had a Matrixectomy scheduled.
