Today I launched #HoodFIt. The last several months have been an amazing journey for me and I hope you will join me for the next twelve months as this concept gets developed. I believe #HoodFit will help us reach our next level (we all have a next level) by drawing from our past experience and reaching deep within ourselves.
More importantly, I hope to change the narrative of our youth growing up in “the struggle” by helping them see their authentic and amazing “self” through “us”. For this to succeed I need you to participate in whatever way you can. Hit the “like” button on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, sign up for our newsletter via our website or … all three. Lastly I want to make it clear this does not involve a fee or fundraising… for me this is just public service.
**Over the next few days look for two major #HoodFit announcements**
Last Friday, I deviated from the “shake day” of my diet and I ate the salsa and chips I had on my counter. Unfortunately for me I did not realize the salsa had been out on that counter for a week or so. Forty-five minutes later I began what became 12 hours of vomiting almost every 30 minutes.
When the vomiting finally passed I couldn’t move and breathing was difficult. I though I had something else going on, so I started treating that but all the stuff I was taking was only make it worse. Finally after a lot of pushing I went to the hospital ER. I was admitted, got a room and three hours later I was on the operating table.
First I want to think God for being my Savior, Healer and Deliver and for all of you who supported me on my #HoodFit journey. I’m not sure my body would have been able to fight without having very special people in my life believing in my ability to grow and transform.
I’m down for the next few weeks but I’m not out. I will not be posting a lot but I hope to get back to my 365 photography (a photo a day)post by the end of the week.
