Another Day Another Dollar

I don't know about y'all but I'm getting tired of eating off of these dollar menus. I would love to go back to the day when a dollar menu from a fast food restaurant was taboo. Back in the day breakfast, lunch and dinner was cooked in the kitchen using the stove and not the microwave. However, since the start of the 21st century we have become so far removed from those home cooked meals. Most of us can agree we only enjoy those meals on holidays. And its really starting to affect my chicness!!!

Since I have changed up my daily schedule from 2nd to 1st shift I can actually fit a more productive workout and eating regimen. Due to the recession I'm trying to save any funds I have available I find it much easier to buy the unhealthy food i.e. dollar menu because it's always cheaper and convenient since I'm always on the go. I was just telling my girl the other day something has got to give because packing on the pounds is not an option. If anyone is feeling like me and needs to shed some pounds try researching the websites of fitness centers in your area. Did you know most of them offer free passes to workout before you commit to a membership? And if stretching your dollar anymore than you already are for a gym membership is not feasible you can always pick up a fitness DVD for about $7 at Wal-mart.

If you want some healthy fitness and lifestyle tips check out Aug 2009 issue of Essence magazine. Not only does it have sexy chocolate Idris Elba on the cover it also features some great fitness tips from the most elegant chicette of all Mrs. Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama talks about everything from how she gets those toned arms, balancing your body, and healthy foods she eats. Well my chicsters and chicettes I hope to see you all in the gym and if you have any tips on how I can shed some pounds in a healthy manner drop a comment. I hope you have enjoyed your daily dose of "The Daily Chic" tata for now.

Your Chic Extrodanaire,
