This Girl is on FIRE: With Weight Loss That Is

I’m excited to share with you my first Interview Inspiration.  After a fun night out in the ATL this past weekend, followed by church Sunday morning, a retail work day, and a quick run down the interstate to pick up the girls from their Granny’s, my dear friend Geneva gave me a call late Sunday night to help me with my “Oprah Swag”, her words, not mine.   I am very proud of her journey toward significant weight loss over the last 3 years.  I’ve seen her looking more and more fabulous but I was so touched hearing the details of her story.  I know that anyone on a weight loss journey or working toward any type of goal can find inspiration from this interview.

THIS INTERVIEW TRULY WAS A GIFT TO ME & NOW I'M PASSING IT ON TO YOU.  ENJOY!

Friday Fitness Check In: Resolution Solutions to Weight Loss

For Act-Fit Friday, I’m joining one of my favorite bloggers Nellie at Brooklyn Active Mama for her Fitness Friday Check-In.  When I started this blog, I wanted a type of Fitness Report Card weaved into the posts so I, along with anyone tuning in to PFL would have some sort of accountability along this weight loss, healthy living, and active lifestyle journey.  B.A.M. (I wonder does she know I call her that) is on a roll checking in every Friday providing awesome inspiration.  I’m joining in from now on with a monthly check in on the last Friday of the month.    I would encourage you to journal your progress as well.  January is a month of many weight loss resolutions. I believe the solution to staying with your resolution is accountability.  Let’s get started!

PSA #2: THE FLU SHOT IS NOT MAKING YOU SICK

Public Service Announcement #2: Contrary to popular opinion, the flu shot really isn’t making you sick, unless of course you have an allergy to eggs!  I hear from every other person, “that flu shot made me sick last time, I’m never getting it again”.   Please bear with me for a few during My Health Monday as I challenge your thinking on that.

THIS COULD BE YOU!

Schoolin’ Life from Coach

I have a special tribute today for Act-Fit Friday! First, I want to thank you for hanging with me this week while I creatively weaved the theme of Rx Fitness Lady in with all these special events. I appreciate your sweet comments in honor of our Centennial and the great city of Macon, GA from earlier this week.  I’m making this week complete because my collegiate Coach Lonnie Bartley became the coach with the most wins for Lady’s basketball from an HBCU this past Saturday when the Fort Valley State women’s team defeated Stillman 85 – 71.  That was win #624!!! Woo Hoo!

CONGRATULATIONS TO COACH LONNIE BARTLEY FOR HAVING THE MOST WINS IN THE HISTORY OF HBCU WOMEN'S BASKETBALL!

I Love MACON a Difference

THIS SHIRT HAS A TWO FOLD MEANING!

THIS SHIRT HAS A TWO FOLD MEANING! I LOVE MY CITY & INSPIRING OTHERS TOWARD FITNESS & HEALTH GOALS

I was asked the question on Christmas by a close family friend, “Why do I love Macon?”.  I spent a pretty minute going in on this friend that was trying to push my buttons.  I was recently informed of a deadline for getting 2,000 more pledges over at ILoveMacon.org  and was happy to write my reasons for the love of the city in support of those efforts.  I was pretty clear in my very first post about my love for my city!  Continue reading

WITH SOROR PAULETTE WALKER, NATIONAL 1ST VICE PRESIDENT

Today, history is made as the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. celebrate 100 years of Sisterhood and Service.  The official celebration is being held in Washington D.C. where over 12,000 members of the sorority are gathered and will have a black tie dinner where President Obama will address all of my beautiful sorors.  The sorority will have their 51st National convention this July.  It is expected to be double the attendance and more as we paint Washington D.C. red for the second time this year.   I will be at that one!  I’ve been saving my pennies:)   Continue reading

Customer Service Confessions of a Community Pharmacist

I work 72 hours in a week and then I’m off for a week.  I love my schedule but in those 72 hours, my patients can sometimes make it really hard on a Sistah! Do you ever wonder if the Pharmacist is taking longer than necessary to fill your prescription *giggles*, I’d never do that!  Really, someone might make you wait for the reasons below.  I thought I’d let you get to know me a little bit better by showing you my reality.  There are no Pharmacists reality TV shows, so here you are…Part 1 anyway, I’m sure I’ll think of more!
