October Challenge

Welp, the #OctoberChallenge is finally finished!  PHEW!  How did it go for you all!  It was rough, but having come through it, I can definitely say that it was worth it. I did something I have never done before, I feel great and I see the change in my body. There was sweat, there was laughter, there was even some screaming, but the important thing is that I pushed myself and when I wanted to give up! I kept going because I told you all I would.  To memorialize the experience, I’ve put together this fun video. But now I want to know about YOUR #OctoberChallenge!  How did it go? Any insights you gained? Do you hate me now?  I wanna hear all about it!

While we are on the style kick (you know with me asking your help in choosing my BGR looks and all) I thought I might share some behind the scenes goods from a recent, impromptu photo shoot.  For no other reason than for the fun I had with the beautiful, and insanely talented photographer Simin Erbel. Oh, how I love having my picture taken (which I am sure you have noticed by now). Well, this shoot was way cooler than the “selfie” shoots I do myself, and I just adore the resulting pictures.  I mean my goodness, Simin you’re amazing.

Fun fact: Simin’s husband, Cory Becker, accompanied her on the shoot (you can see him assisting in the video, lol), but it turns out he’s a fantastic musician.  So we thought it’d be fun to use one of his songs as the soundtrack for this video.  I mean could this couple be anymore talented?

As you may know, I’ll be back hosting this year’s Black Girls Rock  for BET with the wonderful Regina King, and I’m extremely excited about it.  So as I prepare for the show (airing Sunday, November 3rd), I thought I would ask for your help and get you to weigh in on what I should wear and what better way to do that than thru social media!?!

So here’s the deal: On September 24th I’ll have my final fitting with my stylist in NY and I want your opinion. So, I will post an Instagram Video or picture for a bunch of choices and I want YOU to comment and tell me what you think. You can make suggestions, “love the dress and those shoes but don’t like them together,” “favorite look so far,” “not my fav.”  Vote for your favorites, give constructive criticisms, and we can all just have a bunch of fun.

It’s OCTOBER people! My birthday month!!! woot woot! and I am taping Black Girls Rock THREE days before my 41st Birthday. So, I thought it was the perfect time to kick my work out regimen into overdrive. Since I’m embarking on this little project for myself, I thought maybe you would like to join me. It will be much easier of I’m not alone. It’s THE OCTOBER CHALLENGE!  Let’s focus on our fitness for the month of October and push ourselves just a little harder than we normally would.  If you don’t workout at all, take a walk around the park! If you’re a marathon runner who works out 4 times a week, try for 5!
