The Kacy Duke Diaries

While I sip my Berry Blender Breakfast let me turn you on to Kacy Duke. Kacy Duke’s mantra is to embrace a new attitude and accept your self and your body where you   are and have a year round approach to fitness. By loving yourself in the body you have now and building on the positive changes you want to make her program motivates me.  Fitness maven Kacy Duke  launched her YouTube web series, Kacy Duke Diaries to get all of us on track to health and  fitness. Kacy juggles a packed calendar of private clients (that have included Iman, Julianne Moore, Lenny Kravitz), television and press appearances (Redbook, Essence, Good Morning America), empowerment workshops and fitness events.  In her book, ”Show It Love Workout”, Kacy’s approach focuses on self-love and acceptance. Now via webisodes she shares recipes, motivation and workout routines because, Why webisodes, why now? Well, for starters, every day I share healthy lifestyle information with my clients, and I wanted to find a way to reach a larger audience to spread my personal gospel of fitness, food, fashion and of course, fun! By creating the Kacy Duke Diaries webisode series, I’m looking to connect with potentially millions of people — and offer healthy, simple, sensible solutions to the challenges of modern life, with style, humor and a “can-do” attitude.”  Kacy Duke Fitness launched the webisodes and is in production on the next group. Now we can  stay inspired to blast through to a healthy self  for the New Year.

Last year I remembered a documentary I saw produced by Antoine Fuqua called, "Bastards of the Party" about the Bloods and the Crips. The director, a former gang member felt the gang turf wars grew out of the restless generation that came after The 

Black Panther Party who patrolled to monitor police brutality during the civil rights era. I thought it was fascinating it got me to thinking about Huey P. Newton co-founder and Minister of Self Defense of The Black Panther Party. I started reading everything on his life and work. Truly a labor of love one book on Eldridge Cleaver (Eldridge Cleaver author of Soul on Ice and Minister of Information became a Republican ) would lead me to a book on Geronimo Pratt and on to a book about his lawyer Johnnie Cochran and so on. I read Alondra Nelson' book, “Body and Soul The Black Panther Party and the Fight against Medical Discrimination” for her extensive research on the Party's healthcare activism.

I am looking forward to summer so much I've started my summer wardrobe. The winter is expensive with wool coats, status bag, Uber, boots and good red wine. Summer is easy it's all swimming, salads, reading, biking and white wine. I've been picking up mix and match bikini separates from H&M for a song. I love colorful flip flops at Old Navy.

Straw  bags and cloth bags replace heavy leather bags to carry fruit, water, books and my  ipad. Pretty cotton dresses at Forever 21 and Anthroplogie are my daily uniform. My big splurge is sandals. I was in Barney's New York yesterday checking out the Manolos and Louboutins . The sandals are so sexy and exquisite how can I choose. I need a moment.
