Feminista Jones on @ExhaleTV Discussing Sex-Positive Feminism




I had the honor of being invited to participate in this wonderful show with Issa Rae, Rene Syler, and Erin Jackson (with other guests Tracey Ellis Ross, Sahar Simmons, and Kimberle Crenshaw). It was a wonderful discussion and I’m so glad to bring the message of sex-positive feminism to the entire country.

I hope you enjoy!

This is a quick marinade you can use on chicken or salmon. Quick and simple to make. Yes, even YOU can do it :)

1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon fresh dill


Combine soy sauce, ginger, dill, garlic, and honey (last) in a mixing bowl. Whisk until blended.


Pour mixture into small sauce pan and whisk for about 1 minute until well-blended and honey thins out.


This amount is enough for 6 ounces of chicken breasts and a 4 x 2 in cut of salmon


Put salmon/chicken into a sealable bag and pour marinade into it. Seal closed and put in refrigerator for at least 2  hours.

#aMiMS Update: Can we count other cardio?

The short answer: Yes, with limitations.

If you run, use pedometer or 1 mile = 2,000 steps conversion.

If you use a stair climber or step machine, count each stair as a step.

If you swim, convert the meters into miles and then use the 1 mile = 2,000 steps conversion

If you cycle use 1 mile = 1,000 step conversion if your pace is less than 6mph. Above 6 mph/hour, use 1 mile = 2,000 steps.

If you use elliptical (or similar) machines use 1 mile = 2,000 step conversion.

As a reminder:

While this is a walking challenge, we want to make sure that you’re including all of your efforts to GET MOVING!!

(Prize preference will be given to those who walk at least 50% of the challenge, however).

A Mile In My Shoes Fitness Challenge (#aMiMs) Update: Ready? Set! Go…Soon!

Wow, 150+ people have already registered for my new fitness challenge. If you haven’t done so already, read more about it and register to participate. Registration is FREE and I’m offering a $100 prize to one luck winner at the end, but only to those who made the deadline of May 14, 11:59pm.

We begin on May 15, and I want to make sure everyone is clear on what is expected to participate:

You’re going to get moving! Walking, jogging, or running, you’re going to try and reach your personal goals each week.

Set your goal

The minimum expectation is that you move at least 30,000 steps a week. Your personal goal should be AT LEAST 30K steps a week. Remember, for the best cardiovascular impact, we should strive to walk 10,000 steps a day, which is roughly 5 miles. This is a near-impossible goal for many of us, which is why this is a CHALLENGE.

Some people have mobility issues that prevent them from walking or running. That’s all love. For those who have no physical limitations, we’re going to stop relying on excuses and get moving. Set a reasonable goal for the first week and see if you can keep increasing it as each week comes.

Use this chart to track your progress: Right click and download. If mobile, click link and it should download onto your phone. I recommend uploading to Google Docs so you can access it via the mobile Google Drive app available for most Smart Phones. That way, as soon as you clock some steps, you can enter them into your own tracking form. You can also print it out and keep it somewhere accessible so you can just jot down your steps.

Get your tracking devices

If you haven’t done so, please get a pedometer or download a cardio tracking app.

Here is a helpful conversion chart:

Get to know each other

The best part about social media-based challenges is that they bring people together who have common goals. You can make new friends, connect with people trying to get to the same places you are, and provide much-needed support to someone else.

Your first #aMiMS activity:

Tweet a brief introduction of yourself, using the #aMiMS hashtag. Include your Week 1 Steps Goal and why you’re taking this challenge.

Ex: Hey everyone! My Week 1 goal = 35,000 steps. I joined to get better with cardio! #aMiMS

When you see people tweeting with the hashtag, feel free to respond, welcome them, encourage them, and follow if you want.

Sound good?

Let’s go!!!
