I’ve been sporting a badge in my sidebar all month but haven’t blogged a dag gone thing about it.   I was reading Margret’s healthy living blog, and discovered that March was National Nutrition Month.

I thoroughly enjoyed all seasons of my life with regard to fitness.  Here I will give what I have found to be most beneficial to me and other members currently rolling with #teamGym.

DIY Baby Pharmacy & A Medication Storage Tip

This is probably one of only a select few  DIY projects you will ever find on this blog.  It’s National Poison Prevention week in case you missed my boring informative post from Monday :) .   It was more for my Mommy friends and so is today!  Trust me, it benefits everyone though.  In keeping with Poison Prevention week, I thought I’d share one of my favorite gifts to give.

YSBAI #2: Tips for Group Fitness Instructors

I’m back with YSBAI (You Should Blog About It) #2.  These are topics and/or questions that come from readers. B.K.A. Q&A, but just let me have this please ;)

Before we get started, I wanted to share something with you.  Do you ever watch this show?

The Biggest Loser

I was talking about today’s topic & my sister told me that whenever she watches that show, it never fails that the participants end up teaching some sort of group fitness class.  Well, that makes sense to me.  I’ve always said that if you want to hold yourself accountable to staying fit, then teach a class or two.  Even if it’s volunteer, you shouldn’t fall off the wagon because you always have somewhere to go each week and deliver rockstar performances to your class participants.

The question for today comes from Carli over at Real Into who is training to be a new Pilates instructor.

“What advice do you have for a new instructor?”

Rock the Red Pump with Rx Fitness Lady

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  I’m dedicating my blog post to talking about HIV/AIDS for the Rock the Red pump Project.

Red Pump Project

Part of the project requires you to put on a pair of your favorite red shoes! I don’t have any red pumps that I want to wear to church today but I will be rocking my red cowgirl boots to go visit my family in Sparta, GA after church!

Red Boots Los AltosSince I started this blog at the end of 2012, I have had quite a few posts dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.   In preparing my previous posts, I stumbled upon an opportunity and joined NBHAAD as a Community Ambassador where my role is to remind people about NBHAAD (National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day).  That 13th annual day of recognition & a reminder to get your annual HIV test was on February 7th. You can see the mission through this photo and read the post hereContinue reading

20 Influential Women in a Tweet

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.
