Today is International Women’s Day! Thus the interruption of Act-Fit Fridays! We talked Group Fitness Wednesday. If you missed it, go check it out here. Today is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present, and future. You can read more about it here. Different cultures have migrated to the celebration of love & respect in general toward women while others maintain the intended focus of economic, political, & social achievement.
I chose to share some of my inspiration with you today on Rx Fitness Lady.
Em K, *This list is not all-inclusive* It’s in my ABC order..after my Mother @ #1 of Course 😉

NOTE: It would be remiss for me not to mention that there are women in my life who influenced me for the better, by way of never wanting to adopt their characteristics and actions. Clearly, I’m not going to post a list of these ladies. However, they affected my life just as much in shaping my persona, so I thought it should be recognized. I thank them as well for the bad and the good that is in them.
