I realized during my journey of life that I didn’t have a blog post for last Sunday, so I need to bring you up to speed. Tomorrow is the last day of the “21-day No Junkfood Challenge.” In all honesty, I didn’t do as well as I knew I could. I gave in a couple of days. I can be the extreme “busy-body”: work; budget plans for bills (smh); trying to be consistent with workouts; preparing for my sorority’s centennial celebration. I really had to be more creative with my meals since I didn’t have much food in the house. I realize there’s much more work to be done on a consistent workout routine; pushing myself even when I don’t want to; drinking more water; changing my eating habits. My willpower needs to be strong! I took advantage of the FREE EXERCISE classes at work: Total Body Workout and Zumba. Trust me, I worked up a sweat in the three days I took the courses. I know I slept well LOL! This weekend, we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, for his 2nd term. Now how do these celebrations relate to today’s blog post? Both realize there’s still work to be done for all citizens in the United States to live as the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights says we deserve.
Last weekend was the official founding of my Sorority: Delta Sigma Theta. The year 2013 is the centennial anniversary. It was founded January 13, 1913. I am blessed to be in an organization that realized our Illustrious 22 Founders wanted to make a difference. Their first act was participating in the Women’s Suffrage March on March 13, 1913. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was the only African American organization that’s documented in participating in the march. The 22 Founders went against all odds to make a difference! So many Deltas are highly involved in education; economics; political awareness; physical and mental health; international awareness. There’s still work to be done.
If Dr. King, President Obama, and the 22 Founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority could do what they did, then I know I can accomplish my goals of pursuing and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Enjoy your weekend and take time to reflect! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XmqjGvr8fk&feature=youtube_gdata_player
