EXCUSE? or ABUSE? The question is…which is it? Before you ladies answer that question, allow me to inform you that those two words go hand in hand when it comes to neglecting having a consistent fitness regimen because of our busy lives. When we as women make excuses for not incorporating proper daily exercise into our busy schedules, we are not only abusing our bodies physically but mentally also.

FACT: Drinking water before meals helps to reduce hunger, thus reducing caloric intake and helping to reveal your 6 pack.

MYTH: No matter how much one eats, crunches will produce a 6 pack…WRONG! You’re just building muscle under the existing fat.

v45_healthI had the opportunity to attend the “Gift For Life Block Walk”, sponsored by the Bayou City Chapter of Sisters Network. Although the Bayou City Chapter is headed by Landa Harris, I really observed a real “sisterhood” while watching all the sisters working well together to make this event a success.

v42_healthI remember getting that dreadful call, “Your mammogram is abnormal. We need you to come in for more testing.” …more mammograms, ultrasounds, and 2 biopsies later, they told me it was only fatty tissue.

v39_health_valNow, you know that you want to lose weight. But how do you face this battle..how do you pick the right weight for you and your body structure? Do you find the model on the cover of a fashion magazine or your best friend, whose body you like, and try to reach the same weight as her? Or wait, do we pull out that prom dress or cheerleader outfit and set a “through back” target weight of 25+ years ago?
