    Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move challenge

    Take the Obama Challenge

     
    Well I have no family and are single living in Del City, Oklahoma City, OK in Section 8 housing making $17 dollars an hr. This is great, but I actually find the stress of work and other economic tidings to gas draining my routine, that and the terrible gas milage I get in my 2008 Suzuki SX-4. It's sucking it down gas like a slurpy your mom bought you from the local 7-11. I'm actually smoking more due to excessive spending related to food cost and for lack of a better word "Fear" of the food pyramid and all the serviings she offers you a day that seem to just destroy my caveman budget, yes I said caveman. I'm smoking more because my life is out of control due to food. Food is the only reason to exercise. If I had more money for food I'd exercise more. Two years ago, 6 years ago I was goin through the same cycle. The let's move Challenge is great for kids preparing for professional carrers as sports athelets. I'm trying to eat one meal a day based on what my grandmother says got them through the depression, but I get so hungry from working so hard and my budget just can't afford the things I need, like a new bicycle and the food to bike 16 miles back and forth to work everyday to save gas money that and I nearly tore my achiles heel doing so last winter. Yea living the dream. whoo! Finguring it out one day at a time thought. DOn't need no high class friends, I just stick with my friends from high school. I've actually injuried myself more working out as part of the military's fit for life campaign than at work and now ...I want this pain from "moving" to end ...hahah...life rocks...lol...fb forever! Happy 1999. I'm not gonna vote in this next election Im so excited about the future of politics and my involement in it.
