The History of Me in Music

Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music.

Kenya Moore Booty Bootcamp Review

If you know me you know I love The Real Housewives Series and one of my favorites is Atlanta. I think Kenya Moore former Ms. USA is a great addition this season. That being said when I was asked by the wonderful @bookieboo from Mamavation if I wanted to review her DVD Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp , I was like "YEAH" I want a stallion booty.

Happy Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice

So today is the first official day of Summer and we even get an extra hour of daylight. I guess no one told that to Mother Nature because it has been HOT, STICKY and HUMID the entire month. My plans to celebrate today will involve a watermelon, water balloons, the beach & pool, playing a little tennis and just having a great family day.

What are your plans for today ?

I can't believe we are already in the middle of June meaning that this year is half way over. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months will bring. I promised myself "ME" time , eating better and working out. I can say I have done 2 out of the 3. I still find myself feeling guilty if I try and get me time. My youngest daughter who is 9 is basically turning into a mini me which is a great thing , LOL. She loves to hang out with me , watch tv, cook, work out and is just as sarcastic as I am. I want her to be everything that she wants to be and that makes what I do and say that more important. That being said it is important that I make me time so she doesn't feel guilty to take time for herself.

The Fast Metabolism DIET

I was asked by Shespeaks if I wanted to review The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy who is a celebrity nutritionist and wellness consultant and of course I jumped at the chance because I am always looking at new ways to eat healthy. The book says you can lose up to 20 lbs in 28 days which was the first thing that caught my eye. After reading it though I didn't see it as a Diet but more as a lifestyle change. It is broken up into 3 phases so you are keeping your metabolism guessing. 2 days you eat lots of carbs and fruits, 2 days lots of proteins and veggies then 3 days of carbs , fruits, protein , veggies and you add healthy fats and oils. The book comes with helpful charts and yummy and easy to make recipes. There are restrictions like no eating dairy,soy, corn, wheat, caffeine ( NO COFFEE) , refined sugars, alcohol, fruit juices & dried fruit. You also have to stay away from anything labeled " Diet" and " No Fat" . All the meats also have to be nitrate free and eat organic as much as possible. She also recommends eating with 30 minutes of waking and drinking half of your body weight. I found The Fast Metabolism Diet easy to follow and pretty realistic.You can also follow Haylie Pomroy on Facebook and Twitter .

These Mondays just seem to be coming faster and faster where are the other 6 days ? This past week I have been thinking about what I want to do, where I want to be and how I am going to get there. As a child I had a to-do list that was a mile long of all the things I wanted to do. I think it is time to get pen and paper and make that list again. You are only as old as you feel and I feel mighty young. I feel like you STOP living once you STOP dreaming and I am not going out without a fight. I am breaking up with the scale for the next month it was a nice break up, I just need space and a chance to meet others. I am going to go on a few dates with Mr Measuring Tape and see is he appreciates me more. 
What and where does your comfort zone end and what do you want to push yourself to do ?

Mamavation Mondays

This week the weather has been down right nasty so I felt the same way. Every time I wanted to go outside and enjoy our beautiful Miami weather Mother Nature would show me and introduce me to her friends rain, thunder and lightning. So it was me and the treadmill but even he had other plans and decided now was a good time to breakdown on me. Nobody keeps me from doing what I said I was going to do so I took out my DVD's and used them but again I have said it before not getting in those 10,000 steps and fresh air makes a difference in not only how I feel by the end of the day but also what I would eat. It's sorta like what came first the chicken or the egg but in this case what came first feeling sluggish or eating crappy. And NO don't think well run in the rain. One of the beautiful things about living in Miami and so close to the beach is all the people from all over the world. It is like living in the United Nations and one of the bad things is all the people from all over the world not to mention the locals. Lets just say some people have no business driving a vehicle. Also the wildlife decides to come out and play in the rain and I am not about to play with things that have claws, fangs or feathers. The great thing is everyday we have a chance to do it right and better so like little Orphan Annie " The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow".
