September 10th, 1970. How’m I doing?!

I am often told I look good for my age or I don’t look my age at all. I guess that’s supposed to be a compliment. I say this is what 44 is supposed to look like and anything else is settling. Saying it’s my genetics is doing all my hard work a disservice. “Black don’t crack.” *eye roll. I’ve seen a lot of cracked black and it ain’t pretty!

I never lie about my age; I wear it on my sleeve. Who says getting older means accepting less than when you were younger? This is a result of years of healthy living, not always clean,Β  but mainly healthy.Β  Exercise took shape in various forms; lots of sweat to keep my pores clear and skin smooth. I didn’t start working out as a way to slow down time. It’s just the way it worked out. Β 

This is a message for the youngens who will be reading this.Β  Time is NOT on your side. Keep thinking you will never get older. Keep telling yourself you have time before shit starts to fall.Β  Time waits for NO man or woman. You can’t turn back the clock but you sure as hell can slow that bitch down!

Getting back into my #yoga practice. Early morning stretching in an empty yoga studio is the best way to clear the mind a prepare for the day!

I had a surprise visitor in #TRX Max today. Thanks Story! She tells me of all these “issues” she’s got going on with her shoulders, then summarily kicks all kinds of ass in class sans modifications! You’re Awesome and thanks for coming through. It’s the best when a fellow instructor takes class with you. 😊
