I could not believe that this day finally has come!  My first time walking the Atlanta Journal Constitution Peachtree Road Race! I am excited and hype up that I am one of the 60,000 + racers that are participating in this historic coveted race!  As you know being a part of this race is one of my bucket list goals so I knew that I will not let anything stop me for doing this race!

    

Before I left out the house to drive to the Marta train station, I heard on the radio that weather was going to be a code red.  Code red is the highest code of very high humidity and heat.  This is not the good news that a runner and walker wants to hear before going outside to do a 10K race!

 I knew that I must remember to hydrate myself by stopping at each water station along the race route in order to prevent severe dehydration.  I also knew that I had to pace myself and not start off the race running like the other walkers do.  The worse thing that I could not is tired myself during...

Everyone I know celebrated the fourth of July with a Barbecue.  This year I wanted to celebrate in a healthy way by joining the Peachtree Road Race! This is a big goal for me since I wanted to jump start my new exercise plan by accomplishing a goal from my bucket list.  Before walking this race, I had to pick up my racing number  confirmation at the free Peachtree Health and Fitness Expo.  The expo was hosted at the Georgia World Congress Center, so I decided to go there on a beautiful hot Sunday.  This is my first time participating in the world's largest 10K race and the Peachtree Street Health and Fitness Expo.  I was excited to what fun activities that were going on at the Peachtree Health and Fitness Expo.

                   

I had to take the public transit for Atlanta called Marta in order to get to the Downtown area since the streets were blocked off for the Peachtree Road Race.  Once I arri...

I had the lucky opportunity to experience my first Aromatherapy Massage, and I love it! Special thanks to my lovely sister Dori, I was able to receive a gift certificate to a local spa for my birthday gift! I always wanted to try an aromatherapy massage since I did take a class in aromatherapy and enjoy it! I decide to go to the Elements Massage in Buckhead to try the Aromatherapy Massage.

When I came into the spa, I smelled hints of lavender essential oil diffused in the air along with the soft, soothing music in the background. I decided to try tangerine essential oil called Vitality which has a slight floral scent of blended essential oils. The blended oils of Vitality are calming and can help improve your mood. I was so excited about trying this to relieve my stress that I have been feeling lately.

When I met with my masseur Cantrella, I told her this was the first time had an aromatherapy massage and she understood how anxious I was about it. She was very open and friendly and asked...

I always love going to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens particular for the spring time.   This time at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens was the Georgia Herbalist Guild monthly meeting.  I had the opportunity to listen to Jen Stovall, RN, Community Herbalist and Health Educator, who spoke about Herbalism on a Food Stamp Budget.  Ms. Stovall hails from New Orleans and runs her herbal store in a low-income community.  She explained about her customers are having difficulty obtaining health care and they come to her for help.  She believes that using kitchen herbs are the best such as fennel seed for digestion, dill seed for cooling, black pepper which is hot invigorating for mucus and chili flakes for stimulating the circulatory system particularly for peripheral neuropathy.  The chili flakes placed in between socks and shoes. Turmeric is another herb for liver support and fat digestion which does give a fresh taste.  Basil that is fresh and dry is antiviral, boost the immune system f...
