God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. ~Reinhold Niebuhr



Fitness:  A Critical Component In My Life

There is power in the serenity quote. Sometimes when I think too hard about my physical self, I think, “this too shall pass”, “shake it off and keep it moving” and when all else fails serenity is a good place be. Fitness is an obsession of mine because it is something physical that I can control. With that, clothes and shoes runs a close second. I feel like if I can secure a cute pair of shoes or that bomb digity dress I’m good for another week.

Lastly, I am very meticulous about makeup both permanent and otherwise. Yes, I spend a lot of time in Sephora and I think I have the services of the best permanent makeup professionals over at the Nouveau Clinic. Over the years, through trial and error, I’ve found eye makeup that works well with the absence of eyelashes and brows and that complements my permanent makeup artistry.  Being bald in a world where hair dominates dictates that I put my energies into my physical qualities and most importantly concentrate on things I can change and control for the better. It is my reality and my serenity.


As I’ve aged, I learned quickFitness: The thing I can controlly that I need to adapt to a mode of exercise or fitness level that are not too taxing on my joints but yet incinerate calories in massive numbers. In came ZUMBA. In case you haven’t tried it, do it! I was amazed at the calorie burn and it’s fun. If you can believe it, spin has nothing on this form of exercise. If you’re worried about coordination, well, okay, I get it. I’m not good in that area so it took me a little longer to master the concept. The main thing is to have a good time in the midst of dancing and shaking yo azzzzz off!!!!

What fitness suggestions do you have for me? I’m open.
