    The 30-Day Butt Challenge That Seriously Sculpts Your Booty

    Need to get your butt in shape? Oh, do we have a butt challenge for you. Jeanette Jenkins, celebrity trainer and creator of The Hollywood Trainer Club, put together the ultimate booty-sculpting plan that sculpts and burns—like...


    This butt challenge is broken up into six 5-day sequences: (1) floor exercises, (2) squats, (3) ballet-inspired moves (they look beautiful but feel brutal), (4) lunges, (5) lateral moves, and (6) explosive exercises. The first day of each sequence, you'll only do one exercise. But on the second day, you'll do exercises from both Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3, you'll do the exercises from Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3. So by Day 5, you're doing five exercises. Then, you'll start the next sequence the same way. Get it? If you still feel sore from the previous day, feel free to take a rest day! You'll hit every move at the end of each series.

    In addition to your daily butt exercise(s!), you'll also do a cardio move of your choice for 30 seconds before each move. So, yes, that means five cardio bursts on Day 5. Jenkins suggests high-knee sprints, mountain climbers, pendulum swings, jumping jacks, and burpees. Yes, you get to choose, but don't skimp out on those burpees. You're better than that.

    I Left My Husband & My Hair In 2017
    Keisha Marie
    Mar. 13, 2018 07:30PM EST

    "So you just gon' leave your hair and your husband in 2017?!"

    I couldn't help but to burst out laughing as I looked back at my big sister's face on my phone screen. It showed a hilarious mixture of shock and amusement as we had an impromptu FaceTime sesh' that December day. I had just posted a not-so mysterious Snap on my Facebook page. All you could see in the photo frame was a pile of freshly cut hair in a sink and bold words that read, "So, I did a thing…"

    Two months after choosing to separate from my husband, I had decided to chop my hair off.


    [​IMG]

    And yes, the cut was most certainly symbolic.

    At this point, only my close friends and family knew what was going on and no one took me seriously. The hair I was carrying on my head sprouted at the same time our relationship blossomed. It carried the memories of our love when it was unassuming and new. But it also carried the pain I began to feel as our relationship aged, and it kept getting heavier and heavier until that day in December when I decided to let it all go. When I chose to let go of my hair, I was also letting go of my marriage, which I realized had stopped serving me a long time ago.

    The early years of our relationship were the sweetest, even without much romance. We were sharing our college experience and falling in love to a backdrop of weed, fast food, and normal young adult nonsense. I noticed that he showed very few signs of being ready for a real relationship but I figured that would change over time. We were having fun together and that was all I needed at the time. When he didn't even bat an eye after I chopped my hair into a Pixie cut and then transitioned to natural hair all in our first year dating, I was convinced he was the one!



    [​IMG]

    In hindsight, I placed way too much value on how he handled my first big chop and didn't pay enough attention to signs that things may not have been as sweet as I thought they were.

    As we approached our one year mark of dating, he took a few involuntary vacations, we had blown through tons of my money with no real plan and the romance was non-existent. But he still complimented me on my twist-outs, praised my natural beauty and wasn't a complete ass-hole, so in my mind that was good enough. It was so good in fact, that I decided to marry him despite the glaring red flags that maybe we weren't even close to ready.

    My coping mechanisms for life's bullshit are to smile bigger, find the rainbows and sunshine, and suppress like crazy.


    [​IMG]

    This got me through many trying times, but it also made it easier for me to deal with much more than I should have in my marriage. Not even a year after exchanging vows my with husband, I wrote this passage in an old journal:

    "I mean, I feel like I'm the only one bustin' my butt tryna make us get to a happy place, but all he's concerned about is hoopin' & eatin...All I want to see is that he cares for & loves me more than he loves himself but all I've got to show for our love is this notebook!"
    The frivolity of our relationship was revealing itself early on and I can recall numerous talks we had over the years about what he wasn't providing or changes I felt we needed to make as a unit. Unfortunately though, all of those pleas fell on deaf ears, even after having our two children in the 2nd and 4th year of our marriage. And despite this, I kept on smiling and being foolishly optimistic with no real evidence of things changing.

    In 2016, the resentment and unhappiness I had suppressed for so long began to surface. I tried to ignore it but as I poured all the love I had into my two children, and my husband, I started to feel how much I was missing within myself.

    One morning in October, I had finally woken up to how bad things were in our life together. As I drove him to work, I made a comment to him about his attitude and treatment of the women in his life and he immediately dismissed it. I looked at him and saw the irritation etched into his face and for a split second, I believed that I was wrong. That thought faded quickly though. I had to stop and ask myself how could someone I had given nothing but unconditional love to be so aloof to my feelings and the battles I was so obviously fighting?



    [​IMG]

    A few days later, I finally worked up the courage to tell him we needed to separate.
    My mind was made up and now his pleas were falling on deaf ears. I was done ignoring the early red flags simply because at least he loved my natural hair. I no longer believed that I could teach him how to give me the romance I was craving, or that I could make him really believe in my vision once I started making real money from my hustles. I knew that the only thing we could do at this point was to separate and he was not going to convince me otherwise.

    It was one of the hardest decisions I have made yet, but one that I am proudest of.
    I finally found the courage to stand up for myself and act on the feeling in my gut telling me I deserved better.

    Fast forward to December. During our separation, I was forced to really think about my hair and how much I hid behind it in both the literal and physical sense. The confidence that I felt in my natural hair journey was superficial because it developed from my husband's approval. It felt forced and I felt like a fraud.

    So on that December night, I placed my hair in six twists and cut them off one by one at the roots without a second thought. I remember the fear I felt in my heart as I was twisting my hair just melting away as I looked in the mirror and saw a shell of the woman I thought I would become. I knew that once I cut my hair I would really be cutting off any connection to the lies I had been telling myself over the years. I would finally begin the real process of healing. As I cut off each twist, I felt lighter and lighter and knew this was just what I needed.



    [​IMG]

    I left my husband and my hair in 2017.
    While I never saw it coming, it wasn't because the signs weren't there. For years, I practically begged for romance, for him to take the lead in our lives, for him to push me and be as supportive of my dreams as I was of his, but to no avail. We rarely had the really hard conversations and when we did, there was a lack of change afterward. He took me for granted and gave me a surface level love that was just enough to make me content.

    So with my choice to cut my hair and make a bold move to serve myself, I also made the courageous choice to leave behind complacency in my love life. I chose to do what I needed in order to fall in love with my damn self so that I could honor the woman I once was and who I was striving to be.

    Femininity can be an extremely spiritual experience...


    but it often turns ugly when life’s pressures get in the way. While a woman dons a brave hat to face what the world throws at her, she often fights ugly demons inside her head. While she puts on a happy smile on her beautiful face, she is often weighed down with emotions, trying hard not to let them surface.


    While we unconsciously seek love, acceptance and understanding from the world around us, we often fail to look in the one place we can truly find it – in ourselves.


    This guided prompt and question journal attempts to dig deep into your feminine psyche, begin an enriching process of self-discovery and help you experience a new level of awareness and understanding about yourself. In the coming pages, a collection of 365 thought provoking, bucket-list questions will force you to think beyond what is obvious to you and bring forth beautiful gems of knowledge and wisdom about yourself.


    This new-found information and knowledge about yourself will open doors to new possibilities and experiences, and transform your life in a positive, steady way. The questions are varied – some may delight you, while others may evoke a strong emotional response. Nevertheless, all of them will get your creative juices flowing.


    Are you ready?

    Hair-straightening products contain potentially toxic mix
    Ronnie Cohen
    5 Min Read


    (Reuters Health) - Hair products used primarily by black women and children contain a host of hazardous chemicals, a new study shows.

    The findings could explain at least in part why African-American women go through puberty earlier and suffer from higher rates of asthma and reproductive diseases than other groups.

    “The truly scary thing about this is that women are being exposed to these chemicals weekly and sometimes even daily, without their knowledge, because they assume a product is safe simply because it is on the shelf,” epidemiologist Tamarra James-Todd said after reviewing the report in Environmental Research. James-Todd, a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, supplied product information for the study but was not directly involved with the research.

    Investigators tested 18 hair products - from hot-oil treatments to anti-frizz polishes, relaxers and conditioners - looking for the presence of chemicals called endocrine disrupters. These chemicals, which interfere with the way the body produces hormones, have been linked to reproductive disorders, birth defects, asthma and cancer.

    Altogether, the researchers looked for 66 different endocrine disrupters. Each of the tested hair products contained at least four and as many as 30, said lead author Jessica Helm, a research fellow at the Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Massachusetts.

    Eleven products contained chemicals prohibited in the European Union or flagged as a potential problem in California. The two hair products marketed to children contained the highest levels of banned or regulated chemicals, Helm said in a phone interview.

    The vast majority of the chemicals discovered in the hair products - 84 percent - were not listed on the product labels.

    “It’s widely known the U.S. is doing an inadequate job of testing and regulating chemicals,” Helm said. Companies are allowed to omit chemicals from product labels if they are fragrances and if they are considered a secret ingredient in the product formula.

    “In many ways, we are protecting companies’ rights to privacy over consumers’ health, which seems backwards and can be particularly harmful to high-risk and vulnerable populations,” James-Todd said in an email.

    Janette Robinson Flint, executive director of Black Women for Wellness in Los Angeles, said the study’s findings are proof that she and other black women “can’t shop our way out of this problem.”

    “We also need manufacturers to disclose what’s in the products,” said Flint, who was not involved in the study. “We need some regulatory body to regulate these manufacturers so they don’t let them get away with not disclosing what is in the product and then using toxic products.”

    She called the study long overdue. Researchers have known for years that black girls enter puberty earlier than other girls and that black women have disproportionately higher rates of deadly reproductive cancers, she said. Yet little prior research has been done.

    “It’s as if our lives do not matter,” she said in a phone interview.

    Helm pointed out that she and her team studied only 66 chemicals, just a fraction of those in hair products. There’s a “universe of other products we really don’t know much about,” she said.

    Prior research has shown that black women use more hair products than other women and suffer disproportionately from uterine fibroids, early puberty and infertility, Helm said. In addition, their rates of endometrial and breast cancers are on the rise.

    The current study can’t prove that the presence of endocrine disrupting chemicals in hair products actually causes these or other problems. But the study does point to them as a potential source, Helm said.

    She, James-Todd and Flint encouraged more regulation of the contents of hair products targeted to black women and personal-care products in general. Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Dianne Feinstein (D-California) have introduced legislation (the Personal Care Products Safety Act) that would further empower the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to regulate ingredients in cosmetics and personal-care products.

    Flint also welcomed a fashion trend toward more natural hairstyles for black women and children.

    “The more natural styles come into fashion, and the more skills black moms have in styling their children’s hair in natural hairstyles, the less vulnerable our children will be to overexposure to toxic chemicals and having their immune systems compromised by having to fight these toxic chemicals,” she said.

    The most interesting part about some men claiming having daughters as the reason why they suddenly appreciate women, and see us as humans, is that it's a lie.
    They don't see women as humans, they they believe they see their daughters as humans. A difference. The women in
    Their lives, don't suddenly get treated any differently than they ever were, by the men who it took having a daughter, to appreciate a female human life.
    The wives/girlfriends/lovers/babymamas are still treated the same.
    These men are really just discovering what it means to
    Love a female human, without requiring anything in return. It is literally the barest of minimums to simply discover that you love your child exhaustively.
    To use such a minimum expectation to elevate yourself -- to claim sudden maturity and wisdom, is not only dull, but untrue.
    Finding out you love your daughter is not a million dollar revelation, it is the expectation. You want the world to be better for HER. You don't want anyone to treat HER like shit. That is called having a child buddy.
    Also, how human is your daughter going to be treated?
    Men who use their daughters to ease their conscience in how they treat/treated women, often have expectations in how they want their daughter(s) to behave, putting stronger restrictions on their daughters, moreso than their sons.
    Making their daughters lives more difficult
    Because of "they know how men are".
    Nothing groundbreaking, and nothing to applaud.
    What is laudable? Having respect for all women, from the start.
    If you need a familial connection to appreciate a woman, please don't try to garner up support by claiming you suddenly see
    All women clearer. Stop lying and just admit you only love women, who are connected to you, because you love yourself a lot.
    The irony of claiming to suddenly respect women because you have a daughter, yet still treat/speak about all other women derogatorily - can you reason?

    You know something?

    I hate this point....really

    I UNDERSTAND.

    It is a bullshit cop out way over used by "men" to claim they love women

    But as a father a brother a son a godfather a uncle and a mentor.

    That is some bullsh*t

    Of COURSE when something is OF YOU and CLOSE TO YOU

    you care more.

    Women do it too.

    I used to never even LOOK at homeless people but when I volunteered in a shelter?

    My empathy and compassion and understanding changed.

    Yeah I use to wear pink ribbons and donate a dollar

    When my sister was diagnosed with cancer?

    you think I saw CANCER the same?

    I worked with people with special needs ...but when my baby cousin had it?

    It was NOT the same.

    When my daughter was diagnosed with a blood disorder...

    does that mean I DID NOT care about all the OTHER kids before her who had life threatening conditions?

    Look again I UNDERSTAND

    but this is why I hate social media shit.

    You can't make a BROAD f*cking statement like that and then CONDEMN a whole GENDER like that.

    I KNOW we ALL do it...

    but see?

    that is my point

    WE ALL DO THAT.

    You don't REALLY appreciate ANYTHING until it hits you in your HEART...

    that's sad yeah.

    But its the truth.

    again its a little pet peeve of mine.

    And one of the FEW things I get really defensive about.

    cause I am a DAMN good father and yes when I see those girls I want to defend EVERY SINGLE little girl in the world.

    You want to criticize me for that?

    well go ahead.

    and trust me my sisters aunts cousins goddaughters and mama will be the first one to say f*ck you.

    These black women got my back like that.

    and I have theirs.

    And hell yeah it helps when your blessed with perfect princesses of your own

    So you had an experience and changed. She is speaking of men who have an experience and continue to treat women the same. Doesn't sound like this applies to you.

    sorry if that is the case...

    but I just don;t like that AUTOMATIC reaction if a man says that...

    now when these #metoo assholes were using it as some type of defense?

    yeah f*ck them.

    but I've noticed its like a blanket thing now WHENEVER ANY MAN says that.

    And I don't like that.

    So if a woman says "I'm a mother" then we gonna say that too?

    again I am really sensitive over this cause I had to check this white chick at my daughter's school when she tried to use that.
