Flexirods Can Help You Stay Fit & Fly

I frequently discuss hair as a barrier to workouts in the African American community.  Whenever I discover another tweak to the hair maintenance routine of a sister trying to stay fit and fly, I get super excited to share it with you.

My latest discovery is the Flexirod! It has changed my fit, fly, and financial life here the last six months and I will show you how!  I think this is an appropriate share for black history month!

This is how I leave out of the hair salon. I literally took this photo at the shop. There is nothing like the feeling you have when you prance around with a fresh new do! The problem is, as soon as you hit the gym, the freshness of you fly goes out the window.

Flexirods Can You Help You Stay Fit & Fly

What if I showed you how the flexirod not only helps maintain your hair but it empowers you to get your workout on knowing that you can still keep pretty curls…..WINNING!

25 Years of Brains on BODYUMP: Les Mills BP 100 is Here

On January 14th, gyms across the globe participated in an international launch of Les Mills BODYPUMP 100.  It was a grand celebration of the original barbell weight class that strengthens and tones the body.  This marked 25 years of this amazing program’s existence.   I was happy to participate in our gym’s launch by teaching the last four tracks of this amazing release.  I got my hair done the night before, so excuse the head gear 😉 !

My Brazilian Hair Bust

I have made it perfectly clear on some of my initial posts, that I wear a sew in! After several attempts to keep a steady workout schedule while practicing good Hair care, the sew in is what won me over for appearance and maintenance purposes.  You should really give it a try if your hair is holding you back from exercise.

Women take their appearance SUPER serious (well, most women)! I had an experience that I must share for those of you who are in a similar boat as me.

For the record, I didn’t like these pictures!

A Day at Sandy Beach Water Park at Lake Tobo

Last summer a new water park opened here in Macon, GA and I finally got the chance to visit.  I have read a wide range of reviews on social media so I was very interested to check it our for myself.

A Review of Les Mills BODYPUMP 98: TECHNO

Will you be returning to Les Mills BODYPUMP 98 in the near future?

A Review of Les Mills BODYPUMP 98 TECHNO

I am a Les Mills  BODYPUMP instructor that has been teaching for 4 & ½ years in the United States. I’ve been doing sporadic reviews on this blog since it’s inception in 2012. The purpose of my reviews are for one to share any thoughts and tips that I can come up with for those of you who land here regularly and two, to have an easy reminder of the tricky/tedious things to be aware of when I return to the releases when mixing on down the line.

I invite instructors near and far to leave any additional tips and thoughts in the comments sections, pin the picture above, & utilize these reviews the same as me!  Les Mills participants and readers of PFL I always invite you to read along as well and contribute any feedback you have that I have missed.

A Review of the Transderm Scop Patch: 15 Years Anchored in Sisterhood

On April 22, 2016 my line sisters and I celebrated 15 years of sisterhood and service in Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority, Inc.  In honor of this anniversary, we set sail for 4 days on the Carnival Victory Cruise ship from Port Canaveral headed to Nassau, Bahamas!  I was a nervous wreck because my previous experience with cruising was not a good one due to extreme motion sickness.

I agreed in the reunion planning stages to try a cruise again after my mother had success with the Transderm Scop patch. I do not regret that decision at all. Editors Note: ***Transderm Scop patch requires a prescription from your doctor.***

Hennessy was Teazed at PoleLaTeaz Atlanta

This past weekend I checked off one of my fit list desires from a few years ago & attended my first pole dancing class at PoleLaTeaz Atlanta.  Hennessy, that’s me! We had to pick stripper names & the pretty brown brown seemed to fit 😉 !

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…

Tip #1 – I thought the war paint went perfectly with this release! Oh and shout out to fabletics for the black top!

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

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.
