After weeks of arguably the worst period of “smh” headlines, its nice to hear some refreshing news, especially about our former First Family, especially auntie Michelle.
Over the weekend, the former FLOTUS hosted workout boot camp she had with her girlfriends. No, none of us were invited, but we got to live it thanks to the pictures she posted on her Instagram. Mrs. Obama had her hair tied back in a ponytail to do lunges, bridges, planks, sit-ups, and leg and ab exercises. In her caption, she says she hosted boot camps during her time at the white to keep her and her squad motivated. And she wants to continue that tradition. She also encouraged her followers to find times for themselves to stay active and get healthy, whether its a boot camp or just walking outside. Its enlightening to know that our Former First Lady ( and former President Obama) is still out there empowering others and is as dedicated as ever to health and fitness!
Forever our Royal Woman!
When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends. It didn’t matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first. And even though I’m no longer at the White House, I’ve continued this tradition and wanted to share some photos. My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years – including a pretty big one recently! – and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together. Whether it’s a bootcamp or a walk around the neighborhood, I hope you and your crew can find some time this summer to be healthy together.
