In my last post about twerking, I talked about how I’ve found plenty of deals on Groupon for fitness and clothes. Still using Groupon. My last class for twerking is tomorrow and I may still pay for the classes outside of Groupon. The classes were just that good! The season is changing and now I’m looking for new fitness classes to expand my fitness game.

One of the most frustrating things when moving to a new city as a woman is finding a new place to call your salon. When you’re black naturalista it’s even more complicated because you’re not sure who’s really skilled and educated in caring for natural hair. The black hair salon search is sooooo exhausting!

Back in February 2016, I went to the Groupon website on the hunt for some new fitness classes to get me out of the rut of being bored to death with going to the gym. I entered 2016 ready to move pass my plateau in fitness but got stuck with the same fitness routines. Ughhhh! I wasn’t ready to commit to monthly payments to different fitness classes I haven’t tried before,

  1. Every Journey Ain’t the SAME – I don’t know why I would get so frustrated when I started to compare myself to others. No two bodies are the same. So why was I sabotaging myself and my journey?

Sooooo, I got a lot of explaining to do, right? Well hopefully the content I have scheduled will make it up to you.

 

As 2015 comes to a close, I realized just how much I’ve learned this year in health and gains. I reached my highest weight ever and learned just how easy weight gain can be in theory. In the same breathe I learned how difficult it is to gain due to your mindset.

As I celebrate Thanksgiving and reflect on what I’ve done this year, I started thinking about how I reached major milestones in my fitness journey and gaining weight. Although I didn’t hit 130lbs, I hit 126 – 127lbs and with major curves. At this point in my journey, I know how to control the weight. If I “want” to gain extra weight I know the exact formula for my body to get the exact body that I desire.

I’m sure by now if you follow me on social media you saw a flow of pictures and posters related to the Naturalista Hair Show. Although it was one day only, it was definitely an event to remember. While in attendance I caught a few classes and a panel for bloggers. To be honest, the whole vibe was just on point. The vendors, the finger food, the people, the location and the information were all just right.

If you flown JetBlue before, then you know just how yummy the blue chips are that they offer on flights. Frustrated for paying over $4 for a bag of that same brand of chips that’s filled with air, I decided to create my own darn blue chips. Oh and for some reason, the blue chips in the bag are extremely hard to find in my area. Arggh!

I’m officially over tapered haircuts on natural hair! Let me back up and say, I’m over it on ME. Now that my tapered hair divas are no longer offended, let me proceed. I got my first natural hair cut back in 2013, and the stylist gave me the tapered cut. If you missed out on it, check out my YouTube video of it here. I was initially not too thrilled about the style,
