In Summary
  • With just one week to Valentine’s Day, love is definitely in the air.
  • There’s more than love in their though.
  • The pressure to look amazing, get the right gift, make reservations in the best hotels, get the mushiest romantic songs playlist, the list is endless.

I was walking in town earlier this week and almost bumped into a street post as I gawked at the breathtakingly gorgeous lace and satin attires donned by mannequins on window displays in town.

My hopelessly romantic mind drifted into fantasy world and I saw myself in one of those deep red lace gowns, clutching on a red satin purse with my dreadlocks stylishly piled on top of my head leaving the diamond earrings with red emeralds in full view.

A lady who seemed to be in a hurry accidentally hit me as she zoomed past me, jerking me rudely from my reverie. I sighed under the scorching sun and made my way to the supermarket to replenish my stock of dried mint herbs.

With just one week to Valentine’s Day, love is definitely in the air. There’s more than love in their though. The pressure to look amazing, get the right gift, make reservations in the best hotels, get the mushiest romantic songs playlist, the list is endless.

One could argue that these things are the love in the air but I beg to differ. Most of these things are very expensive whereas love is free. That however is a story for another day.

Today, we will focus on getting ready for Valentines’ Day.

MTOIVATING FACTORS

Whereas fitness is a lifetime commitment, its intensity may vary depending on various motivating factors. I have noticed that the number of people jogging every morning in my area has significantly increased.

In one of my fitness groups, someone out rightly posted that they needed their tummy flat before February 14 if she is to pull off the smashing lace dress she bought recently.
