This week the host of Fashion Flash is Shawna of Female Fat Loss Over 40. Like  many New Yorkers, I rely on walking  for  my daily exercise.  Twenty city blocks is equal to  one mile and I leave extra time  so that I can  walk to my appointments and get in some exercise.  But when icy winter weather  arrives,  I have to go indoors and   and Shawna has some of the best fitness programs I’ve ever tried.   She is especially good at motivating reluctant athletes ( like me) and  I feel better rather than achy after one of her workouts. Be sure to check her out as well as the rest of the wonderful Fashion Flash sites.

But  even more impresive was her stamina.   After six hours   on her feet at the Fabulous After 40 booth, she was still bright and bubbly– and in  4 inch heels!
