Fitness Friday | First Time Hiking Tips From My Experience!

First Time Hiking Tips-2

Those who have followed my fitness journey over the past year have heard me declare how much I prefer outdoor exercise to traditional workouts, especially in a group setting.  It's more challenging (for me) and much more fun!  So when a girlfriend invited me to join her exercise group for an outdoor hike, my eyes lit up!  I wasn't sure what to expect since I  had never met any of the other group members, but she assured me it would not be too … [Read more...]

Long Term Transitioning Tips + My 4c Natural Texture

transitioning hair, long term transition to natural hair, type 4 transitioning hair, transitioning from relaxed to 4c natural hair

Everybody has a different reason for "going natural."  I've always been envious of the volume naturalistas are able to achieve with their styles, especially twist outs - but that wasn't enough reason for me to transition.  For some reason once my hair grew beyond 12"  inches long, my ends would thin and a very necessary cut would follow.  I got tired of the cat-and-mouse game I was playing chasing my final length goal.  So although I am long … [Read more...]

Fitness Friday | October Goals, Let’s Drop this Last 20!

weight_loss_plateau

I'm only 20 pounds away from my initial goal weight.  I have two goals - one that I would be considered healthy (within a normal BMI range) and a lower weight I believe I would be happiest with.  After starting this last weight loss journey with a bang last year, I have struggled to continue to drop pounds steadily.  I've pretty much fallen into maintenance mode without intending too, which is NOT okay since I still have a good amount of … [Read more...]
