Quick Intermission

I know. I owe you all a million posts. Okay, not a million. But a lot. They’re coming soon, I promise!

I owe you all a lot of things. I owe you a post about what I’ve been doing for workouts lately. And I owe you a post about how I’ve been eating (way cool by the way!). And I owe you lots more posts about lots more things. I have some seriously exciting, awesome, and somewhat controversial posts in the mix right now that I’m working on putting together and finishing. They’re about how and what I’m eating now, how I’m working out, about being healthy and how it’s perceived in the fitness world, so much to talk about and so many posts that are long over due! Thank you all for being such patient readers!

[Side note: In the meantime here is a quick do-anywhere workout I posted on IG to get you through until my next post! Winking smile]

Before I post all of these things, I want to take a quick intermission. I want to take a quick minute in my corner of the blog-web-osphere and tell everyone that I am praying for America. It’s an uncertain time in the U.S. and the world right now. I wanted everyone and anyone effected, and to everyone else glued to their TV’s in horror, by the bombing in Boston, or the factory explosion in West, Texas, or any of the shootings in Washington or Illinois lately, or any other tragedy that is taking place currently that I am thinking about each and every one of them. I don’t know if there are words that can help, but know I’m thinking about everyone and anyone effected, no matter how small or large of a scale.

I am thankful for the first responders and bystanders that have done everything they can to help. Being an ER nurse myself, I can only imagine what healthcare workers in these areas are seeing. I can only imagine the heartache from families directly effected. I have seen the compassion from those who are willing to help, willing to fundraise and willing to dedicate a workout or run to those effected, and though that doesn’t change damage done it shows what happens when people band together. Americans are tough and resilient. Let’s keep making America strong, keep making us who we are. America can go back to the strong nation it once was – let’s all band together to make it happen.

And to all of my wonderful readers from other countries, I hope that you’re all safe and though I may not know the ins and outs of your country like I do mine, it doesn’t mean my thoughts aren’t with you through trials or my joy with you through happiness.

Keep being the best person you can be. Be there for those you love. And goodness, if things like this remind me of ANYTHING, it’s to be thankful for everything you have, and especially the time you have with the ones you love. Don’t forget to hug or kiss your family tonight. Don’t forget to tell them you love them. Remind those you care about what they mean to you.

Fitness related? Not directly no. Nutritionally related? Not so much. Related to life? Yes. Too important to ignore? I felt I couldn’t let these things pass without telling all of you I’m thinking of you. Keep being the best you that you can be, remember life is too short to beat yourself or anyone else up, so remember to love and remind those you care about how much they mean to you!

    Don’t feel like you “owe” us anything! I always look forward to your posts. I had to clean up my google reader of other blogs to keep things positive, and I always look forward to your motivating and REAL posts. Can’t wait to see what you have in store :)
