See Her Healthy

See Her Healthy

By Tasha Edwards

Her is my daughter. Her is my mother. Her are my grandmothers. Her are my aunts. Her is me. Her is you.

What if we SAW her in her potential for health? What if we saw her beyond her blood pressure, her cancer, her heart condition, her generational habits and helped her get there.

See Her Healthy is about changing stats by granting access. We’re talking to women who are facing real things, making changes and creating a new normal, redefining what it means to be healthy.

The Masterminds
The Masterminds
First of all, you need an elevator speech. LOL In June, 2021, I attended a live movement conference with all of these ladies whom I had only met online. It was refreshing, supportive and eye opening.  We decided to create a Mastermind group (fancy wording for making sure we have each other's back) and we've been connected ever since. Please don't let the fact that you don't teach Pilates keep you from soaking up the blessings in this discussion.  What you hear are professionals sharing their way, finding their way and showing others the way.  What you hear is courage and connection.  What you can't see are falling backdrops and wine glasses.  LOL. Everyone needs someone to understand and have their back. And, if you haven't yet, you should try Pilates. :) Follow them on Instagram at: Mychele Sims: @get2werk Mindi Westfall: @bendymindipilates NIkki Peterson: @nicole.peterson.775 Tanesha Manigo-Brown: @pilatesandaromatherapy

Girls Women Sisters Friends with Shay and Xan
Girls Women Sisters Friends with Shay and Xan
This is so special to me because I get to talk to my girls; my biological daughter and her bestie, who is like my daughter.  We aren't talking world views but just allowing them to be young women talking about friendship and why they still hang out and what do they think it will be like when they go off to separate colleges in August. And....they drop some knowledge at the end.   I love them both so much and I hope that, because of this, they will get used to speaking into the mic.  Their stories and lives are going to change the world.

Changing Out In The Open with Shenna Townsend
Changing Out In The Open with Shenna Townsend
When you're a public figure and you're literally everywhere it's hard to hide anything; especially your body.  When Shenna, or Lashay B., our favorite female DJ here in Huntsville, got a report she did not like from her doctor, she used it as motivation to take control of her health.  As she was going through her process and people started seeing her in a smaller body, the "talk" started.  This is a candid and honest conversation about what it's like to go through lifestyle changes in the public eye and the responsibility and stress that goes along with that.  You can find and follow her at: IG: lashay_b and listen to her on WEUP  And her passion project (which you can support): IG: lashaybspromdressdrive

A Mother's Love, Life and Lessons with Ninah Moore
A Mother's Love, Life and Lessons with Ninah Moore
My friend, my sister Ninah Moore, is taking control of her health one step at a time and it has absolutely nothing to do with a number on the scale. Ninah was in elementary school when she lost her mom Janice to a heart attack. While she admits that it didn't quite register then, Ninah, a cancer survivor, mom, grandmother, wife and lover of people has taken the lessons from her mom's life and death and is moving forward to be the best she can be and is encouraging others to do the same.  ...and I love her so much for it.

The Healing List
The Healing List
I'm riding solo again this week after days of craziness, stress and trauma triggers.  I decided to really think about those things and people that bring me back to myself...and the ones that don't.  Have you ever created a list of things and people to go to when you feel hurt, ashamed, guilty and like a failure? Here's my list and here's why.  Let's just talk. For real.

Sincere Ignorance and Conscientious Stupidity
Sincere Ignorance and Conscientious Stupidity
As we prepare to celebrate what would have been the 93rd birthday of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and see the flood of quotes and images on our social media timelines, we have to question why we are still "here" in this place of such turmoil in terms of equity and equality.  I can't promise you this is not a tangent but I can assure you that the essence of Dr. King's vision, words and dreams are the essence of what I believe and I just keep wondering why we won't do better. For further reading, my favorite three books of Dr. King's are: PLEASE consider purchasing from the King Center at https://thekingcenter.myshopify.com/collections/books-and-more) Where Do We Go From Here? Letter From Birmingham Jail  Why We Can't Wait The quote that inspired this podcast is taken from the book, "A Strength To Love." I have not read it in its entirety but it is on my list.

There Is Nothing Wrong With Having a Resolution
There Is Nothing Wrong With Having a Resolution
Forget what you heard: There is NOTHING wrong with making a resolution. There is something wrong with speaking negative vibes over people who have made one.  These are the stories of the "whys" behind the years I charged forward with the resolutions I set and the things that changed the course of my path. The things is we don't know why people "quit." And perhaps people (myself included) feel guilty about quitting when they never really "quit" at all. Perhaps there are other reasons why the change didn't stick.  But New Year, New Year Opportunity. And here we go!

Being Excluded While Being Inclusive with Mychele Sims
Being Excluded While Being Inclusive with Mychele Sims
When I started ruminating in my mind about what this coming year will look like in terms of “breaking the door down” and opening up fitness spaces to ALL, I knew I had to talk to my girl Mychele Sims (@get2werk). We went all over the place but, at the core, we are two women who know exclusion all too well and have made it our life work to change things for those coming behind us. This conversation was from a live IGTV which you can watch on my personal page at @hiphealthychick.

I am HER: The Pain and Passion of See Her Healthy
I am HER: The Pain and Passion of See Her Healthy
See Her Healthy was born out of poverty, pain, passion and purpose.  Now realizing how my upbringing gave me a different perspective of "health;" I am looking deeper at the issues of the judgement of the "privileged" and how we have turned health into something that is only attainable if you follow the path set forth by people who don't understand your story.  All of my experiences have brought me to this point.  Welcome to the beginning of an unfolding story of a non profit whose main mission is access.
