30 Days…

I’m doing this 30 day weight loss challenge. Before you roll your eyes, there’s a whole lotta money on the line. Sure, the whole self esteem and healthy living thing is great. But c’mon, let’s face it. I want the money! No alcohol during the work week. 45 minimum exercise every day. Clean eating. You…

5 more days…

Time travels fast when you’re having fun. It also travels fast as you get older. Remember when you couldn’t wait to turn 18? Then 21? Then 25? Then 30? I remember my Dad saying time would fly by sooner than later. Here we are. It feels like I was just celebrating my birthday about 3…

May 2017… seven days in…

The one where he comes out of retirement to steal cars to save his younger brother’s life? The movie stars Delroy Lindo, Angelina Jolie (pre Brad…

Black Girls Are Magic…Don’t Debate Me.

Fantasy Football Time!

Its about that time again… probably one of the most fun stressful things related to football – outside of actually rooting for a team and hoping they win. FANTASY FOOTBALL. I’ve been in a whole lotta leagues across a whole lotta platforms. I haven’t perfected the process, but I’m fairly decent. I’ve done all women…
