I just find it disappointing that when black men are attack or persecuted, black women are usually there to defend them. But a lot of times it does not seem the case the other way around. Good post.

Black Millennials

As the rape allegations against Bill Cosby grow, a disturbing number of Black men are supporting him. Through their support, they are not only impeding the overarching movement of racial justice, but they’re perpetuating patriarchy.

As a Black Woman, I am (once again) caught between the intersectional netherworld of my Blackness versus my Womanhood. These two identities undisputedly characterize my Black feminist politic, but it causes an internal tension that balances on the thin line between my race and my gender.

This struggle, the struggle of Black Womanhood, is one that is entirely unnecessary should Black men take responsibility for not just their race, but their gender as well. If I, as a Black Woman, have to constantly analyze the scope of my identity politic, then Black males should as well.

Some Black Men do. There are a number of personal friends and public luminaries that are vocal about and…

Hello All!

I ran for 2.3 miles today.

Inverted Rows: 62 reps
Push Ups: 65 reps
20# Curls: 42 reps
Squats: 150 reps
Glute Bridges: 150 reps
Crunches: 360 reps (legs elevated, heel taps, reverse crunch, hundreds)

That is all i did today. Push Ups are getting easier. I am getting to 20 reps pretty easily. Inverted rows I top off at 15-16 reps. Since I can’t train with weights as often as I would like, I will only train barbell once or twice every 14 days. Just so I do not forget how to perform the movements.

That is all!

Hello All,

So due to my schedule changing once AGAIN and becoming more spread out, I do not have adequate time to do barbell training 3-4 times a week.

Now I am jogging 3 times a week with my fiance and we will be doing a 5K in January or February. On top of that, I will be doing Calisthenics and stretching every day. Here is what I did the last 2 days and the total mileage i have run in the last 10 days.

Tuesday – Total Reps
Squat – 100
Push Up – 60
Glute Bridge – 160
Inverted Row – 48
Kettlebell Swings – 60
Crunches – 360
20# Dumbbell Curls – 7 sets of 12 reps

Wednesday – Two 90 second sets each
Squat with 55# Bag – 44
Push Ups – 57
Crunches – 180
Inverted Rows – 41
Glute Bridge – 66
20# Dumbbell Curls – 32
Forearm Roller – 2 rolls each direction

14.9 mi walked or jogged since 11.9.2014


I may do barbell training 1x per week which will consist of Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Press and Dumbbell work. I will definitely be going heavy. Not only that but I will be working with my friend Charlie. So I can finally challenge myself with regards to whatever bench press variation I decide to use.

The only day I will not do body weight exercises will be Sunday.

If I have time towards the end of my shift I will try and sneak in some deadlifts and front squats. But chances are I will do it on Friday around 1245p.

That is all! 🙂
