Those are not tassa drums playing in the background, if you want to know more about the beat, look up “urumi” on youtube.

I also use to watch their dating videos [people are truly funny when put in front of a camera]. I love M.I.A., I know she tried to come to the States to work with different producers but she was denied a visa or something like that…my fav work out song “Eye of the Tiger”.

I am big supporter of blk woman working it out and I am so glad that you did a post that encourages this. I love rocking it out and getting my body fit. Might you do a post about workout hair care? I have a short natural so I can just wash and go…but natural, straight or whatever many black women use the “hair” haps as an excuse. Thanks again for the post!

First let me say…I love when your Dad comments. I have an older sis and a twin sis and even though we’re all growm up…our Dad is still so interested in and proud of all that we accomplish…aren’t Dads just GREAT???!!!
About the exercise…this is an inspiring post because I am desperately trying to get back in gear. I’ve always enjoyed ellipticals too so appreciate the link as I have considered purchasing one.
Have you heard of the jazz singer Maysa Leak? She’s the BOMB…a Baltimore native and still so underrated.
Not only is her music unbelievable but she is trying to get fit and lose weight. And…she is chronicling her process in a diary on her website. Check her out when you get an opportunity! 🙂
