MLK DAY 2019

Happy MLK Day 2019

Every year I have felt called to write a blogpost about MLK Day. For me it hits home as a holiday that needs to be celebrated! I am a black woman and for me to be able to freely and creatively express myself my ancestors had to endure so much injustice! For me to receive  amazing education and the opportunities that I have my ancestors had to protest and believe that their sacrifices were worth it! 

Martin Luther King Jr. was an outspoken and dynamic speaker that urged people to see that the culture of his time was completely okay with the subpar treatment of African Americans. His I have a Dream Speech was spoken in D.C on 8/28/1963 to almost 250,000 people! 250,000 people heard his "I Have A Dream Speech" 
How hard did he have to work to get to that platform to deliver that speech??
How many days in jail did he acculumlate before he was able to deliver this speech?

There was so much fight in this amazing man that impacted millions of people! His speech was given 50 years ago but it is still relevant and impactful today!!
If that is not IMPACTFUL I don't know what is!
In honor of MLK Day I have shared 2 of my favorite quotes by Dr. King as they are a guiding light for me as I live and work day to day!!

1. "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


2. Life's  most persistent and urgent question is What are you doing for others?

This question is so key for EVERYBODY! What are you doing today that can impact others for good?

Hope yall enjoyed todays post! It hits home for me and I encourage everyone to not be quiet about any injustices they may see around them as change has to HAS to start with you!!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,

Top 5 atHome Workout Videos

Top 5 Easy atHome Workouts

Hey yall! For todays post this is for anyone that is way tooo busy to get to the gym but still might have an extra 30 minutes for an at-home workout!

I personally find that I randomly have an extra 10-20 minutes in the morning or late at night that can seem wasted by scrolling on social media! But as my New Years Resolution revolves around running the Half Marathon I have been more observant of how I spend my time!

1. 7 Minute Abs

Yall this video above has been my most viewed video for my at home workouts! I personally like the idea that it is only 7 minutes long and is recommended to do it for 7 days straight! Honestly I usually get to Day 4 or 5 before I end up being too busy and messing up the roll and having to restart the entire workout! But my goal is to complete all 7 days! I personally see results within 2 to 3 days and if that is not encouragement enough I don't know what else could be! 

2. 10 Minute Full Body Workout by Brittne Babe
This workout will kick your butt!! Brittne is so knowedgeable and such a badass overall! This video is very motivating and allows you to schedule out the workout at what time works for you! 

3. BuffBunny At Home Workout
(Workout starts at 9:18)
This workout seemed so short in the video but when I did it! Girl it was kicking my butt!! I have been a fan of Buff Bunny for the past 2 years as she is so relatable and funny! While she is able to give great tips to running a business and eating healthy while living my busy life!

4. Quick Full Body At Home Workout by Whitney Simmons

This workout is a tough one! Its created by your girl Whitney Simmons! This video was made during her Whitmas Christmas sequence so its pretty current! 
Her videos will kick you into gear and really are impactful!

5.  Quick 2 Minute Booty Workout
Last video is another video by BrittneBabe. This workout is great for anyone wanting to target a specific area......πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
This workout can be done quick and is effective for anyone trying to build up without spending an hour at the gym daily!

Hope yall enjoyed todays post! I enjoy sharing mini tips to allow fitness to be easier to attain! Especially since we live such busy lives it can be soo tough to fit in workouts but we have to make it a priority for our health and wellbeing to make it happen!
