“Fit and Lean in 2014! Mind, Body, Spirit”

Merry 2014! We have arrived at that season when everyone becomes reflective and introspective about their life and making resolutions to change. It is a New Year and people are excited to have a new beginning for their lives. Some people want to start a business, write a book, go back to school, start a new career, find a mate, get married, have a baby, start saving money and the list goes on and on. 

One of the biggest things that many people resolve to do is lose weight and get in shape. The struggle to shed pounds is a major issue that torments and is a constant battle. Losing weight and embracing the notion of getting in shape is one of my crosses to bear. Back  in November, I heard from two different doctors that I needed to lose the “muffin top“.  This was not a surprise to me, I was carrying the pounds around and needed to get a plan for  dropping the weight and getting in shape.

At first, I was mad at myself because over the summer I took a leap of faith and participated in the popular the Daniel Fast”—that involved eating only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains for 21 days along with other members of my church. I lost 10 pounds and I felt better and it  was a healthy way to eat better, lose weight and get in shape. All of my efforts went out the window as I traded my fruits, veggies and smoothies for greasy junk and sweet treats. The weight came back with a vengeance.

A friend saw my distress and decided that we could get up and start walking in the mornings or evenings to get moving and leave the weight behind. So the week before Thanksgiving we met in the wee hours of the morning and began walking on the road to changing and losing weight. It is never easy to get your body in shape, you have to do the work to  gain maximum results. My friend has been a great source of encouragement and inspiration, she has me jogging and walking.

We set a few goals: Walk/jog three times or more a week. We would go for an hour and we wanted to get up to 4 miles. Our weight loss goal is 15 pounds by Thursday,February 27th (the return of our favorite show SCANDAL). I am have not been boiling over about  jogging and I give my friend the”side eye” when I want to quit, then I remember no pain, no gain! I will not be defeated, this is my season for favor and blessings.

As I walk/jog into this new beginning it helped me to develop my updated tagline “Fit and Lean in 2014! Mind, Body, and Spirit”. I vow to get in shape this year and stay on a track with a lifestyle improvement.  As I get in shape it has to be a total effort of my Mind (it is where everything starts in our thinking), Body ( our temple has to be honored and kept in order), Spirit ( our soul must be in agreement with the body and mind for optimum results).

Let me encourage you to join me as I get “Fit and Lean in 2014! Mind,Body, Spirit”.

Imparting Knowledge To The Youth Teach-in 2013


On Wednesday I volunteered my talent and time to the lively and spirited students of Memorial Middle School in the heart of Orlando, Florida for #Teach-In 2013. It is always fun to  spend time with young people who are bright-eyed, eager,  and at that wonderful age of discovery. For the last 10 years I have participated in Teach-In and I learn something new each time I step on a campus.

I was honored to stand in the Memorial Middle gym and greet the 6th,7th and 8th graders for the Career Fair. The students were fun and funny. “What do you do?” ,”How much money do you make?”, “Did you go to college? “,”Can I have some of your candy?” If I answered these questions once , I answered them a few hundred times.

While imparting knowledge to the youth, I tell them that it is important to get an education and that learning is earning! I stress that they can be whatever they see themselves being because it is possible! Many of the young men have dreams of playing professional sports and the young ladies wanted to be nurses and fashion designers. We talked about studying the career to see if it was really for them. Other students wanted to go into law enforcement, the military, become lawyers or doctors. I took the opportunity to talk about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) all critical components for many career paths and students need to understand that early.

The young people are our future and our legacy, I want to make sure I am doing my part to put my footprints of impressions on them every opportunity I get!

HAIRversations with YoTrip


YoTrip ThinkingYes It Is Really Me

YoCurlyTripCurlyYo!

Last Friday, I decided to take my crown and glory in another direction. I am now calling myself CurlyYo! I am no longer rockin the long/short hairdo, I am now looking curly new!  A change in my style has caused me to have some HAIRversations in the most unlikely places and spaces.  Yes I said, HAIRversations, it is the talk that women of color (black and sometimes brown) usually find themselves engrossed in after the transition  in their hair style.

The  HAIRversations with YoTrip have been with of all people the white men in my world. Yes they have sized up, walking around me like a merry-go-round. A few of them  walked on by, because they did not recognize me.  Then two of them were bold and bad enough to TOUCH it because they must be from Missouri (the show me state). As soon as the one guy pulled his hand away he quickly offered “I already know, you ain’t suppose to touch a black woman’s hair!”  I was laughing and responded, “How did you know?” He said, I watched Chris Rock  in that movie  

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/53/Good_hair_poster.jpg

I smiled and then they offered insight on my Curly locks. “Do you slap one of those doo-rags on your head at night and sleep with your head hanging out the bed?” I laughed and said, “No, I sleep however I feel, no special positions for me! You touched it, didn’t you see how soft it feels?”  I know they were shocked with my candid HAIRversations with them, but if you don’t share how can you expect people to be educated. One of the guys said, “Yo, I really like it and I think it looks good on you! That is more hair than I have had in all my life. ” Smiling at these guys, I told them that, “I am glad to have  had this talk with you so, now you know more about a sistas hair.”

Have you ever had to have the HAIRversations? How did it go for you? Was it a teachable moment for all involved? HAIRversations will always take place as long as transitions happen in our HAIR world! shouts out to the best stylist on the planet, Suzette A. Fullerton of  A True You Salon in Ocoee, Florida.

Wonder Woman Speaks Out!


Wonder Woman vs. Wonder Woman (129/365)

Wonder Woman vs. Wonder Woman (129/365) (Photo credit: JD Hancock)

If I sat down with my beloved Wonder Woman and conversed I would want to know a few things:

What made her think she could do it all? Wonder Woman was from the Amazon and possesses super-human powers:

Why did she set me up to think I could do it all?

  • Won heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and sexual equality has also led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon

What made her think that jumping into a headband, cape, belt, bathing suit and go-go boots for five minutes could be how you save the world and solve problems?

What would the Wonder Woman of the ’70’s say to the modern-day Wonder Woman?

Does she see Wonder Woman as a game changer?

Wonder Woman thanks for reminding me why you were one of my favorite characters to watch and read about as a child. I am also glad that as an adult I can appreciate this fictional person Wonder Woman,  who changed the game and paved the way for other female sheroes!

YoTrip Presents: Marian A. Clay, “A Woman People Should Know”


 

YoTrip Presents: Marian A. Clay, “A Woman People Should Know”

Marian J Blige 2012

Below is my fifth feature blog post in honor of Women’s History Month.  This post is near and dear to me because it is my SHERO, my joy, my inspiration, the wind beneath my wings, my Mother. It is important that we celebrate the beauty and brains of women. Please enjoy learning about these fascinating women and then make sure you support them in their passions, projects, and products.

Who are you? Please share something about yourself and your passion.

Marian Anderson Clay is the third of seven children raised with love by her parents Joe L. and Ruth Anderson. I am a child of God, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, and a cousin. I am an active retiree, that loves the Lord, my family and my life! I was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia.  I attribute my upbringing to both sets of my family life; we spent quality time together and enjoyed being around each other.

 I have a passion for volunteering. I have been a volunteer since my youth working with individuals in my neighborhood and then I really became serious when my children were in school (I was a member of the PTA and PTS). I was instrumental in getting a traffic light put in on a major highway to help keep my children and others safe.

From 1994-2002 I worked as a hospice volunteer with St. Joseph then Trinity Hospice. My patients were dealing with all forms of cancer, HIV/AIDS, men, women who were young and old. In 1996, I was named the Employee of Year for my volunteer efforts at the V.A. Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia. Also I won a national award the Golden Rule Award from JC Penney’s for my volunteer efforts via the United Way, for my work with hospice patients. In conjunction with the Golden Rule Award I received a letter of recognition from President William “Bill” Jefferson Clinton.

Currently I volunteer with the Compass Mentoring Services Inc.; we work with at risk youth from ages 3-19 who are in need of life skills. We also assist the parents with coping and parenting skills. I also work with the Lydia Project, a group that focuses on women who have had any form of cancer. This organization provides bags of encouragement as women go through their cancer treatment. I work as a prayer partner and caller for the women in need. I am a long-time walker in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and I participate in the University Hospital’s Miracle Mile.

What makes you a “Woman People Should Know”?

I am people oriented and I have a love of and for people. I never met a person that I forget. I ask the Lord to help me remember people and he continually does that in my daily encounters. I am God-fearing and I have a strong Christ-like personality. My family (especially my three children Yolanda, Greta, and William as well as my grandchildren) are essential to what keeps me going and growing. I humbly submit myself to serve and be of service.

When did you find out that you had that something special that you wanted to share with the world?

In my formable years, I realized I had a need a love and a desire to serve people. I made it my mission to give back to others; it is my life’s work. If I meet a person in need, I do my best to try to offer them assistance. My parents instilled this concept in me and I have lived by it and did my best to pass it along to my children and grandchildren. My parents also taught me the importance of being responsible and it has stayed with me all of my life.

Where do you see yourself in the times to come?

My destiny has been decided and I know that my life has been full. I want to be wherever I am needed to serve. My aspirations are to enjoy myself no matter what comes because I know who holds my future. I am always pressing towards the high calling, which for me is Christ Jesus.

How do you make it all happen?

I realize that I can do nothing myself. I have to put all my trust and faith in the Lord. I do know this,All things work together for the good, for those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose.” I received a birthday card that said the following: “A women ought to appreciate her own beauty, value her own wisdom, and be surrounded by people who couldn’t agree more.”

A Vital Resource To Stroke Victims: The Caregivers

The victim of a stroke need someone to help them as they recover and heal from the affects of their stroke. The caregiver is the person who provides care, concern and compassion to the stroke victim. Those who provide assistance give of themselves to  ensure the stroke victim, has the things they need on their journey to recovery.

Being a caregiver requires patience and persistence when interacting  with both the stroke victims and other resources. Please read and share the information below.

 

Caregivers/family members play a prominent role throughout the post-stroke recovery process. Caregivers/family members are essential to successful home care and too often are ignored. Caring for stroke survivors at home can cause high levels of emotional, mental and physical stress. In addition to distress, disruption of employment and family life makes caregiving very challenging. Family caregivers can promote positive post-stroke recovery outcomes; however, they need to care for themselves as well. Post-stroke recovery varies for each person; even if the stroke survivor returns to work and maintains a large amount of autonomy, family members may play a bigger role in the stroke survivor’s live than before the stroke.

Caregivers/family members of stroke survivors: You are not alone. National Stroke Association is dedicated to providing educational programs and resources to help you navigate the challenging post-stroke recovery journey.

Caregivers/family members may:

  • Assist with doctor’s appointments, medications, and exercises.

  • Manage financial matters and transportation.

  • Provide the stroke survivor with physical, mental and emotional support.

  • Assist the stroke survivor with daily activities such as personal care and hygiene.

  • Plan out the stroke survivor’s care, including setting routines and managing the care team.

  • Assess stroke survivor’s medical needs, communicate with healthcare professionals and advocate (medically) for the stroke survivor.

Tuesday Thoughts for May 1, 2012-National STROKE Awareness Month (Vol.5, Iss.1)


 

This month I will highlight and bring awareness to National Stroke Awareness Stroke Awareness Month banner

History of
National Stroke Awareness Month

National Stroke Awareness Month takes place in May every year. On May 11, 1989, President George Bush signed Presidential Proclamation 5975 designating May asNational Stroke Awareness Month at the urging of National Stroke Association. Since then, National Stroke Association has been honoring this special time of the year to increase public awareness of stroke in an effort to conquer it.

Over the years, public education campaigns have been conducted during May to increase awareness of different aspects of stroke that directly affect specific populations, such as women or those at high risk for stroke. Today, National Stroke Association continues educating the public through campaigns such as the Faces of Stroke℠ and by designing easy-to-use tools and resources that initiate individuals and groups to raise awareness on a local level.

What is a stroke?

A stroke or “brain attack” occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery (a blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the body) or a blood vessel (a tube through which the blood moves through the body) breaks, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain.  When either of these things happen, brain cells begin to die and brain damage occurs.

When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost.  These abilities include speech, movement and memory.  How a stroke patient is affected depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged. http://www.stroke.org/site/PageNavigator/HOME

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for April 24, 2012- Miss Zora Meets Dr.Maya (Vol.4, Iss.4)


Maya Angelou, February 2011

Maya Angelou, February 2011 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today is the 124th birthday celebration for the one and only Miss Zora Neale Hurston. As the world pauses to remember the genius woman of Eatonville, Florida’s favorite adopted daughter, I wonder what would Miss Zora think of this world and how would she record it. ” I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions.” Letter from Zora Neale Hurston to Countee Cullen like she expounds in the quote she walked her own way.

Since this post first appeared almost three years ago, Miss Zora has an auspicious author, a passionate poet, and a wisdom-filled writer the incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou, join her beyond the heavenly gates. I can only imagine sitting at the feet of greatness and gleaning the wisdom and knowledge they would so freely share. Miss Zora and Miss Maya two renaissance women who gave the world so much and left indelible footprints of a beauty legacy on this journey called life. 1-7-15

This post is in celebration of National Poetry Month during the month of April. Miss Zora Neale Hurston and Dr. Maya Angelou are two of my “sheroes” for being women who epitomize making your own way. Both Miss Zora and Dr. Maya set the pace for their contemporaries to try to keep up. A dear friend of mine Publisher,author,poet and “every woman”, Katandra Shanel Jackson Taylor of Freedom Ink Publishing http://www.freedomink365.com/ saw a picture of me at an event and inspired me to pen this post. Here is the poetic piece, enjoy!

Miss Zora Meets Dr.Maya

Two sassy southern belle’s meet on a dusty road

Walking in purpose and passion as they carry their load

I can almost hear them as they speak and share their stories

Shouting, jumping for joy and sharing in each others glories

“I Won’t Take Nothing For My Journey” Dr. Maya tells all

How about those “Mules and Men” back at her Miss Zora recalls

Walking along their path two women find their souls are intertwined

“Dust Tracks On The Road’ Miss Zora exclaims from deep within

“I Know Why The Cage Bird Sings” Dr.Maya shares her life with her pen

These two writers,poets, authors, educated women equipped with their own way of thinking and mind

Make no mistake Miss Zora and Dr.Maya can be called two strong women and truly one of a kind.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for April 12, 2012-IT IS POSSIBLE (Vol.4, Iss.2)


Tell Me Your Dreams

Tell Me Your Dreams (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Dreams Less Sweet

Dreams Less Sweet (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

IT IS POSSIBLE

IT IS POSSIBLE…A DISCOURSE IN BELIEF!

To dream, a dream into reality real… IT IS POSSIBLE!

          To have an attitude of determination, despite the arrows of deflation… IT IS POSSIBLE!

To have a “No Turning Back” mindset, when all roads are blocked along the way… IT IS POSSIBLE!

To ponder back into the past, be the pulse of the present, and focus on the future…IT IS POSSIBLE!

          To always stand for something and refuse to fall for anything… IT IS POSSIBLE!

          To rise above the HATERS of you, and rally around the HEROES in you… IT IS POSSIBLE!

To beat the odds, because you are better than ordinary…IT IS POSSIBLE!

To see defeat as a doorway to an opportunity to try again, if at first you don’t succeed…IT IS POSSIBLE!

To stay in the game, especially when others count you out of the game…IT IS POSSIBLE!

To recognize the best is yet to come, if we stay the course… IT IS POSSIBLE!

TO KNOW THAT ONE OF OUR GREATEST GIFTS IS TO RECOGNIZE AND ACKNOWLEDGE WHO WE ARE, AS A PEOPLE. OUR VAST AND RICH HISTORY, AS A PEOPLE IS TIED TO MANKIND’S BEGINNINGS AND EXISTENCE. KINGS AND QUEENS, RULERS AND ROYALTY, SLAVES AND SERVANTS ARE THE CALLING CARDS OF OUR PEOPLE. NOW IN THIS TIME AND PLACE WE PAUSE… TO HONOR, REMEMBER AND CELEBRATE, THOSE WHO SHOULDERS WE STAND UPON. THE FOREPARENTS OF OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE, SO GREAT OUR STORIES TO SHARE.

OUR LEGACY BUILT ON THE BRIDGE OF LITERACY AND KNOWLEDGE, COMING TOGETHER IN CELEBRATION OF “WHERE WE WERE, WHO WE ARE, AND WHAT WE SHALL BECOME?

MAY WE NEVER STOP. “YEARNING FOR LEARNING”, FOR THE DAY THAT HAPPENS WE ARE DOOMED AND DESTINED TO DIE.

WE HAVE COME TOO FAR AND HAVE TOO FAR TO GO TO STOP NOW…

IT IS POSSIBLE…IF YOU ONLY BELIEVE
