The Importance of Diet and Exercise during Pregnancy

Black Girls RUN!: What Can You Achieve if You Focus on the Goal?

In running and in life, the first mile is the hardest. At least it is for me. It takes time to get the creak out of my bones, loosen up my muscles, and get into a groove. Any little thing can distract me. My arm band is not quite right, my bra is a little tight, or the weather isn’t as perfect as I’d hoped it would be.

Trying out Fabletics

I’ve been working out on the elliptical for a couple months now and it’s been hard to keep myself motivated. First, I gobbled up every single season of Alias and was super upset when it was over. Now, I’ve recently started watching Orange is the New Black, which I love.I’m kind of sick of my workout clothes though, so after seeing a ton of ads for Fabletics I decided to try it out. I figured that even if I hated everything, I could share my review with you in case you were thinking about trying them too....more
