    I made it a goal to exercise regularly. So I brought some exercise DVD that is a mixture of hip hop, belly dancing, ballet dancing and my favorite African Healing Dance. I'm a older woman and I had to take it slow and build up to the faster exercise DVD . I am doing better with my work out because I can but it in my player at anytime. Now when I first got the DVD I couldn't do no more then 5mins, then I would watch it only. After some time that 5mins added up to my doing the whole DVD's that is about 30mins. I do feel better mentally and physically. But more mentally because I was always up tight all the time.

    Do you take the time to exercise?

    Hi Jackee
    We all need to have time for ourselves, and so I am going to exercise
    regularly. I brought some DVD's that do indeed need to be dust off. Perhaps
    this would help to reduce the negative feeling I'm finding myself
    trapped in, and break away from the craziness of the negative forces
    of this society. As well as getting myself into shape to either run
    if I have to, or make a stand because I need to.

    Peace and Love

    Hey Jackee!
    That's how I spell my name too except it isnt pronounced (Jackie) it's pronounced (Jack-kay) like the actress from 227!!!

    I have noticed to that after I exercise my mind is at eased and my body is relaxed. A good work-out just feels so good.
