Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”
Ron Finley grows a nourishing food culture in South Central L.A.’s food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating. He couldn’t have said it better;
“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes. But when none of this is presented to them, if they’re not shown how food affects the mind and the body, they blindly eat whatever you put in front of them.”
Ivanka Trump looks more glamorous than ever, and more pregnant than ever!
The 31-year-old daughter of Donald Trump took to Instagram giving thanks to Fit Pregnancy Magazine for featuring her in their October/November issue saying:
“Thank you @FitPregnancy for making me your October cover girl!”
Trump was only six months pregnant during the shoot, and had posed in a fashionable, form-fitting dress proudly flaunting her baby bump. She also showed some spice by posing in a dress with a high slit. Don’t be ashamed, mama!
Trump is due to give birth soon to her second child. We at Fit With Fallon want to congratulate the mom-to-be again!
Tory Johnsonseemed to have it all. A great career as a TV Reporter, a loving husband, and beautiful children. It wasn’t until a real conversation with her boss, that made her realize that if her on camera appearance didn’t change, she could lose her job.
Even though Tory’s boss never said the exact words “you have to lose weight or your fired”, that is exactly what Tory heard. Tory was in denial, so much so that she wouldn’t wear white on camera, afraid of looking fat, and she skipped on Doctors appointments for 10 years to avoid the “fat talk”.
Realizing her boss was right, and that her job in fact was a visual job, she decided to embark on a new journey she never once tried to pursue whole heartedly.
This time around a fad diet was not going to do the trick. She decided to use the following tips, which in fact helped her lose over 70 lbs in one year.
Naya Rivera and Big Sean are officially married! After six months of being a couple, the hot pair announced the big news this evening to E! News, and boy are we excited. Not that Naya is not gorgeous enough, but we cannot wait to see what she does in order to get ready for the big day!
Naya is an advocate of eating healthy and working out. She explained to Fitperez; ‘Legs and butt get the most attention in the Cheerios uniform, so those are my target areas. Lots of squats,’ she continued. Planks are another go to exercise for Naya.
We will be looking forward to seeing how Naya will be prepping physically for her big day.
While most people throw pool parties and have barbecues Labor Day weekend, Diana Nyad was too busy swimming from Cuba to Florida. That’s right, she swam from Cuba to Florida just a couple weeks ago without a shark cage to protect her. Diana attempted this venture four times before accomplishing it on her fifth. It took her approximately 53 hours to accomplish this journey, not to mention she did this at the age of 64 years old. In an interview with the New York Times, Diana said,
“I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, you’re never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it is a team.”
Even though Nyad seemed a little uneasy at times, doctors did not intervene. She had multiple doctors follow her on a boat, but there was no immediate need from them to stop her. This would have been her last time attempting this swim whether she completed this journey or not, and we are so glad she did!
Her inspiring swim has landed her an interview with Oprah that will are this Sunday for the series “Super Soul Sunday”. Tune into the OWN network October 6th at 11am to hear Diana explain her courageous swim.
