Recap: 7th Annual “Fit Fathers Day” Celebration: Virtual Edition

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Father’s Day 2020 was such a blessing for the Fit Fathers crew and the dads and families we were able to reach with our spirited health message: “lead by example, so your child becomes the example.” Therefore, blessings to all the kings who pay homage to the honorable role of protecting and nourishing your children.

Fit Fathers Day was presented by Kia and received the support of Men’s Health Month, JBL, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), the African American Health Program, and Turtle Wax. Viewers throughout the United States and as far as Japan and Jamaica were able to join us for a Facebook Live Interactive Workout. We featured dynamic boxing with Coach T, full-body family fitness from Shannon Will, yoga by Dante Settles, and cycling with Kayla Gorrell. The trainers’ team led an energetic and life-enhancing exercise set for everyone’s participation. The new 2020 Kia Telluride SUV was also on display, Turtle Wax sent us shine products for our vehicles, and JBL provided Flip 5 Bluetooth speakers for the crew. DJ P-Cutta also livened us up with his South Jersey flare. [Read more…]

June 21-Day Self-Awareness and Enhancement Fast

The plan is simple Kings and Queens. Let’s strengthen our temples, sharpen our minds, and deepen our spirits with a simple 21-Day Self-Awareness and Enhancement Fast beginning Monday June 1st and ending Monday June 22nd. There will be no check-ins or reminders. Self-motivation is the key.

Simple, we will eat normally except drinking only water and decaf herbal teas (no milk, soda, juice, coffee, alcohol, smoothies etc.), no snacks (chips, crackers, popcorn, cakes, pies, etc) and every Friday we will fast for 24 hours drinking water and decaf herbal tea. It should be self-explanatory that no fried or fast foods are permitted. Only clean, wholesome meals. It doesn’t have to be vegan, but if you want, go for it. Just make sure to eat 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggies daily.

Some of us didn’t have the choice of life extension. We do, so let’s pay homage to our inner beings.

One Love!

Quarantine Lifestyle: Turn Your Garage into a Garage Gym

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Well, it’s quite apparent in this global era of wellness that we will all be spending more time at home to focus on safety. And with gyms and fitness clubs closed indefinitely, the next best remedies are to exercise outdoors and to convert home spaces into health solutions. So, why not exploit your garage to serve as a wellness center opposed to letting that valuable real estate go to waste storing items that have been idling for years.

I knew from the onset that my garage would not be housing automobiles; the driveway is suitable enough for this task. Quite naturally, I had a head start by constructing mines when I first moved in 14 years ago as an antidote to attain freedom from physical limitations. But don’t despair, here are a few suggestions to get the life-enhancing project underway. [Read more…]

Chickpea & Tofu Coconut Thai Curry: Vegan Cyborg Recipe

Tonight, we head to the Far East for a tasty curry meal from Thailand. Well, almost. To start, steam two cups of cauliflower, a handful of chopped carrots and a few sliced Japanese sweet potatoes. After they became soft, toss in a wok with fresh onions, half a cup of chickpeas, and a few splashes of water. Next, add “organic extra firm” tofu chunks and mix together. Pour in the Coconut Thai Curry and let simmer down like Bob Marley for 15 minutes. Serve over brown rice or your favorite Asian noodle and enjoy!

Humans: Slow Down, Read a Book, Respect Nature!

Thoughts by Kimatni D. Rawlins

I vividly recall cleaning yards in the hood of Camden, NJ starting at 8 years old with my cousin Vince. Now I can enjoy a few good books in the serenity of our Japanese garden which I designed after studying the Orient art form (contrast of stone and vegetation) and nourishing our grasses, bushes, shrubs and trees with the nutrients they need to grow strong while providing us with clean oxygen. They key is a strict fertilization schedule — especially in the fall and a slow release fertilizer early winter — aerating, water, and love!

This quarantine will be no problem for I and I, as the goal is to slow down, be still, observe, and value what the Most High has blessed us with while enjoying family more. Humans have lost focus and purpose in life which should not be centralized on rapid acceleration, incessant urbanization and development, robotic takeover, technology beyond imagination, etc etc.

Deforestation alone is literally killing us and the animal population while bringing deadly diseases and viruses into our domain. You’ve destroyed bats’ and other exotic creatures’ homes and now look. Humans have once again altered the ecosystem for the worse in exchange for more profits.

Like Robert “Nesta” Marley said, Simmer Down!
