On Saturday, October 25, 2014 KararD Productions sponsored a 5 minute fashion runway set dedicated to fitness inspired fashions. We also debuted the launch of the Cordless Jumprope to the Tampa Bay Area. Special thanks goes out to Ra Ra the founder of the Exotic Elegance Plus Size Models in Tampa, Fl.
I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to get a pass for two at Atlanta's Indoor Rock Climbing gym, Atlanta Rock's. For some reason I felt the need to challenge myself. It seems like when I'm facing major life changes or in need to validate my own person... I get this urge to go out and do something physically challenging. I've come to understand this as working through the mental stress, expending all the excess and pinned up energy from all my anxiety.
So I went out with one of my homegirls. She weighs about 145lbs... I'm like 220. I let her go first. There is this little girl on the ground that acts like an anchor by attaching the other end of the rope to a harness around her waist. She looked like she weighed 120. My homegirl went up and after she made it to the top, released herself to fall down as instructed. But my oh my... See, I warned this little petite pale faced girl that I weigh alot... I pack a lot of weight on this Big Boned Body. So I actually made it to the top (thanks to my pole fitness regimen) and when I released myself to fall down, guess who ALMOST got whisked up... lol... its all good. The staff there is awesome. I would recommend this rock climbing gym for regular exercise. Its a great mental challenge as well.
So I have this thing where I refuse to go the gym without something to give me energy. So the only place open at 6a in the morning is Starbucks. The first time I went in and grabbed this bottle the cashier told me $6.53 and I was like... What the eff?! So I put it back. The next time I thought about it and finally gave into throwing my Christmas savings into this drink. I needed something to fuel my metabolism.
So when I opened it up and sniffed it I was like ewh.... the typical "Super Green" smell... wheat grass... It tasted like a nasty ole health drink, but as I continued to drink it, the other flavors started dancing. Maybe the fact that the expiration date was 2 days ago is why it tasted that way. This drink was ok. I would prefer my freshly squeezed grapefruit juice to it any day.
How did I feel after drinking it? Can't truly say I felt like Wonder Woman but it did the trick for my metabolism.
Anyone who truly knows me knows that I have an affinity for rocking animal print. By instinct I just gravitate towards it. So it didn't surprise my close friends when they saw me rocking Puma's Trinomic animal print sneakers. And they are the inspiration for my workout fit today. The tee and capris are from Old Navy. The waist trainer is from TKO.
The first 10 minutes I ever wore these shoes I was getting compliments. They are really fun. I would not wear these sneakers to do any athletic training. But I would walk around Atlanta with some really nice fashion jeans and a funky tee with crazy busy accessories.
Get motivated to stay fit... get some sneakers that fit your personality!
I call this exercise “Leg Sculptors”. It helps tone the
thighs and muscles supporting the knees. If you are having knee issues, this
will be great in helping rehabilitation. But always before you begin any weight
loss regimen you have got to talk to your doctor.
Step One. Always start with your legs straight and sitting
up straight like a 90-degree angle.
Step Two. One leg at a time. Raise your leg while flexing
your foot at a 30-degree angle. Put your hands to your side to balance you
until you can feel the balance in your core abdominal area.
Step Three. Do NOT let your heel touch the ground. Repeat
this cycle 10 to 15 times. See how many you can do. Then repeat this on your
other leg. After you have done this you have completed one set. Now go back to
step one and do another set. After you cannot finish another set, go to step
Step Four. Be sexy, be fly, be beautiful. MUAH!!
