Like many of you, I made it a goal of mine (not gonna call it a new years resolution cause I started my journey in November) to get fit & have the hot body I always dreamed of! Not jus for spring break, not jus for summer, I wanna be hot year round! I will admit I’ve fallen off the wagon more times than I can count -sugar & junk food are usually my demise- but that’s okay! Each time I start over I’m more disciplined because I know nobody is gonna GIVE me the body I want, I’m gonna hafta GO GET IT!!!
Now enough of my Tuesday inspiration. Lol! One of the things that keeps me on track is instagram! I get to stalk my body crushes (I have a crush on their bodies) Draya Michelle & Rosa Acosta & learn new exercises & techniques from fitness accounts. My all time fave is MankoFit -she has an AMAZING body, gives recipes & advice AND has regular fitness challenges -talk about a win/win/win!! This weekis the Flat Abs Challenge & is a continuation of last week -I’m just starting this week but I’m trying to catch up.
This no dairy thing is really kicking my ass!! I eat cheese, yogurt, milk, & ice cream at least twice a day! Plus downing all that water?! Whoo! But I made it through yesterday & am determined to make it the rest of the week.
For my HIIT I’ve letting Julian Michaels kick my butt
& doing full body weight training at the gym with my guy friends -exercising with a partner/partners helps a lot! Plus I like being the chick tough enough to workout with the boys. I keep up with everything with the “My Fitness Pal” app & taking pics every week.
If you think about it, fashion & fitness go hand in hand. If you look good on the inside you’ll look good on the outside & have more confidence to show off the best you you can be! I’m going to share more fitness advice, challenges & exercises for you guys & I want you to share the same with me. Leave tips in the comments or @ me (on twitter or IG) @BlondiesLipstk. It’s time for the sexier & fitter you to emerge so let’s get these bodies tight & right!!
Time to be inspired!

In a previous article from 2012 I wrote these words:
“My definition of personal growth consists of finding out who you really are and the person you are destined to become. It’s not easy to do of course and this definitely takes time. In order to experience personal growth you will find that some people in your life will be left behind. Not everyone will want to grow up and put childish things aside, this is where you must separate yourself in order to find yourself. Your road to success should involve only those who desire to be successful as well. People who deal with drama, hate, and negative attitudes should be politely dismissed from your social atmosphere. God did not create us in a package, we were all made separately, and separation as we all know is a part of life.”
Now in year 2013 I still agree with my previous statement and I have grown even more than before. I have learned to keep to myself and possibly a small number of people. I contact my loved ones on a regular basis. Well, I definitely try to. I socialize at work, keeping that to a minimum. Other than that I tend to keep to myself, focusing on establishing a relationship with my man. Also, I’m working on continuously nurturing my relationship with God.
It’s not about cutting people off or changing who you are. It’s about growing and transitioning, two things that we must go through in order to progress in life. The people in your life have to understand your mental grow. If they do not want to even try to understand you have to let them go. In time when they experience the same or similar phase in life they will then understand. Your mental growth is vital to the adulthood phase. During this stage in life you should have solid goals and plans to reach those goals. You should know the person that you are and the things you want in life. Having a 5 year plan can also help the transition be a smooth one.
Every now & then in my social media perusing I find a post that is so TRUTHFUL that I jus have to share it! This is one of those posts! Check out the latest from Verity Reign
Pet Peeve: Friends Who Constantly Cry About Mr. Wrong but Never Leave Him!
|Though Mary sings about the very thing I can’t stand, I LOVE this song! Love me some MJB 🙂|
As the friend who’s always ready with a listening ear & shoulder to cry on I have the same pet peeve Verity! Be real with yourself & if you’re that chick CHECK YOURSELF!! Your friends & family will try to be sympathetic but if you abuse that after so long the only one attending your pity party will be you.
Y’all know I’m all about networking so check out some more of my favorite blogs & websites under the links widget on the left side of the page. Show my people some love!!
I caught up with Stiletto Boss Azalea McKinney to find out how she became a ‘Entrepreneur in Stilettos’ & about her other fabulous high heel inspired companies! Her motto “Wear High Heels & Be Fabulous!!”

So the tip for this week is to start eating breakfast if you are not and if you are eating breakfast you should revamp your current menu. Your breakfast meal should be one that is packed with nutrients particularly protein and fiber,but it should also be low in fat. You should stay away from sugary breakfast items such as muffins, cereal, and pop-tarts. These are okay on occasions, but they should not be your everyday go to breakfast items. Give this breakfast thing a try and I am sure you will start to notice that you will have more energy and you will eat less throughout the day,which will help you reach and maintain a healthy weight.
Stay tuned for more !!
