Have you been putting off today for tomorrow? I have, well I was. I received a wakeup call when I went to the physician and my blood pressure was elevated. My first reaction! No check it again, it’s never high. As a result I am on a weigh loss and meal plan. It takes a few minutes a day to engage in some type of physical activity. Get to it. I challenge you to get to moving. When you do get busy send pics and recipes and I will post them here. We should all be doing some sort of physical activity everyday. Who is keeping you from meeting your weightloss goals? That’s right it is you, yourself. Find a way to schedule it in then it becomes a habit and fells mandatory. There are so many apps out there to track the amount of physical activity and caloric intake. Don’t let the couch or the office chair win.  I worked out everyday since Monday July 23, 2012. A low calorie diet with physical activity equals great results. I hope you send pics and also comment on what helps, what to stay away from, great products to try, and great recipes. In the meantime stay motivated. Please send any requests that you do not want to post on this site to nappiechick@gmail.com. Peace and blessings

Business of the week

Nappiechick would like to welcome our first featured business of the week. Tangles Handmade Jewelry & Hair Adornments: Tangles has been in business for 1.5 years. When asked how did they get started Raffieal Wallace stated, “I have been natural for eleven years. I started with traditional locs and about 1 ½ years ago decided to transition to sister locs. After going from long flowing locs to short hair again, I started searching the internet for cute headbands to wear. I did find cute items, but was not willing to pay what they were asking. After examining some of the different items, I realized I could make these same products, I was seeing, for a lot less. I got some supplies together, made a few items and took them to work to get my coworkers opinions. Got great feedback and a lot of encouragement from friends and family. And as they say “THE REST IS HISTORY.”  From a personal perspective I was fortunate to find Tangles at the local flea market in Tupelo Mississippi. I was taken back by the pieces because they are all handmade, and I had to grab my wallet and calm my nerves. :)) I purchased a pair of handmade wooden earrings with the treble clef on them. I have received so many compliments and I cannot wait to purchase many more pieces. If you want to buy some pieces from tangles, or to just keep up with what they are doing and the new merchandise please read further for contact information. Be sure to check out the fantastic pictures of their quality pieces, you will be sure to find something you like. Peace and blessings until next time.

The moment of truth

I’ve been telling myself over and over again that I have to lose weight. I start diets and working out, and somehow always fail at them. Lately I’ve been on this health kick. I haven’t been talking about losing weight or eating right, but when I go to restaurants and grocery stores I have found myself making better choices. My moment of truth to lose weight always occur when I go into any dressing room with 10 pieces and come out with one. Being my size which ranges from a 16 on a good day, to a 20 on a very bad bloated day in a store where the clothes are not true to size. I usually shop at Lane Bryant locally, or if I’m out of town I love nordstrom rack. I would say for the last month or two I have been selective in what I put in my mouth. I have definitely cheated, and everything that I’ve eaten hasn’t been healthy. I would surely say that I am getting there. I am writing this blog because I want everyone to know that usually when you lose something you later want to find it. In my case I don’t want to find my weight, so I would like to get rid of it by donating it to nature. I’m sure the earth can use a few pounds, but i’m not interested in having the excess baggage anymore. 🙂 My eating style has consisted of one gallon of water per day and more fruits. I eat less fried foods and less sugary snacks. I have been researching pescetarian diets and also gluten free products. I have noticed a tremendous change in my skin and also the moisture content of my natural hair. My skin is starting to clear up and I have less pimples during my monthly visitor. So who wants to join me? I would love a buddy!
