Black girls and exercise

The good news is that we are actually more conscious about moving our bodies and making healthier choices.   When I look back at my earlier self, I’ve always been into fitness.  I ran track; I was a ballet dancer.  I was always doing something that involved exercise, so I guess its engrained in me.    The question I get the most is “are you a trainer, or do you body build. “ I find that so funny because I believe that my body is so far away from being one of those things.  I am aiming for fit.    I like my clothes to fit me right, and I like to feel good.  It is a struggle always to eat healthily this is why I always say everything in moderation.

Excerpt sometimes I have this go hard or go home mentality. If I’m not sweating I’m not working hard enough.

So on to the beauty part, we as black girls get labeled as the ones who don’t like to work out because we don’t want to get our hair wet.  I’ve had people ask me what do you do with your hair.  Well, its simple I go home and wash it after the workout.  So my  hands are basically always in my hair.  Tedious?  Yes, it is but necessary.   Do I get tired?  Of course, I do, but the alternative is not acceptable to me. I love the fact that we really have a presence and showing the world that we are taking care of our bodies and that we are comfortable in the skin we are in.

More than ever we see faces like mine living their best lives, while changing the world and the perception of who we are, and I’m loving it.  I know that exercise, eating healthy, and cutting down on stress is what will allow me to have a long and happy life.  Let’s keep up the good work and maintain our healthy lifestyles and glow in all of our fabulousness. xo
