As if Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice weren’t enough, Shonda Rhimes reached down in her creative bag of tricks and explored the real life of D.C. fixer Judy Smith and delivered us a show that has taken the airwaves by storm.

Why is this show so good are you wondering? ANSWER –You know we love drama. It’s all about dirty little secrets, the dirty little secrets of politicians, public figures, and very important people.  Dirty little secrets that cause stress!  Ha, bet you were wondering what the devil My Health Mondays had to do with my favorite TV show.  Just trying to lighten the space a little her at Rx Fitness Lady.   Really, this show is so good that some of my fellow fans had a watch party for the winter finale. One of the biggest issues everyone talks about is the undercover affair of Fitz, Mr. President & Olivia Pope, the no nonsense cutthroat fixer, well at least she is when she isn’t dealing with Fitz, her little weakness.

Hair Care 101: Permission to be a Black Female & Work Out

In choosing to empower women in the first month of the year, I wanted to share my thoughts on one of the biggest hindrances in the African American Community when it comes to exercise.

NOTE: This post isn’t just for sistahs! Other fitness professionals, gym rats, and people frequently wondering what exactly is going on with that black chick on top of her head at the gym….keep reading!

QUESTION FOR BF: Have you ever skipped a workout because of a fresh new hairdo? You are not alone and this IS NOT AN EXCUSE!!! This is a very real daily dilemma for women of African descent.

Profit From Your Passion

Would you be surprised to know that the difference in a family going bankrupt and or losing their home is often times an extra $250 of income per month? Don’t ask for the source, I heard it at a convention in 2007.   A lot of issues result from irresponsible spending and lack of budgeting, but usually a little extra money would do the trick to keep you comfortable. Yes, I know there are several avenues that you could use to add the $250 like getting a roommate or just picking up a standard part-time job.  However, I can attest to the fact that you will enjoy your work 100X more if you are passionate about the work you are doing.  If you make more money than 98% of the nation, you probably will be happy with that no matter what.  However, that means you would be a 2 percenter.  Soooo, for the rest of the 98%, I wanted to start 2013 off with my first Prosperity Post being a process for making your passion your bankroll.
