I Failed The Blog Challenge

I am hanging my head low today. I just realized that I did not post to this blog yesterday. I did post to my business blog and I will share it here. Don’t check out my site though, it is not ready…I just started it. I will let you all know when it is ready. But anyway, let me give a brief explanation of what happened yesterday.

I got a call first thing in the morning from my daughter saying that she needed to go to the hospital. That is where we spent our day and then I brought her home with me so I could take care of her. She is still in pain, but the pain meds help to relieve some of it.

Blog Challenge

Today is the first day of the blog challenge over at BlogHer. I have committed to writing a new blog post each and every day of this month (August).  Not only will this challenge help keep me focused, but it will also help to improve my writing (I hope). It will be interesting to see what subject areas will pop into my head from day-to-day.

You can click the link below for details if you would like to be  part of the challenge or if you just want to check out what everyone else is doing. Happy reading and writing!!




To Jog, Walk or Crawl? That is the Question.

This post is being written for absolutely everybody no matter your size, age or sex. I was watching the news last night and what I heard really helped put things into perspective for me. (I know, I know. The news is usually full of depressing shit but this part was actually helpful.)

How many of you can find five minutes a day to do something that will reduce your risk of death by 45%? I am thinking just about everybody. Even me. Sometimes the thought of doing anything healthy is overwhelming and just seems useless to someone like me. I am 41, overweight, out of shape and am a smoker. But I bet I can find five minutes to change my life.

When I get home from my job I am usually exhausted. I am on my feet on cement floors the entire shift, but obviously I need more. So the news said that if we can run for five minutes, FIVE minutes then we can reduce our risk of dying of heart disease significantly. This certainly helps the overwhelming part. I did listen closely to the fine print and they did say that if you can’t run, then jogging or walking also works. I may have to crawl in the beginning, but I will eventually be able to walk.

So anyway, I am going to give this an honest effort. Who is with me? We can all do this. Every single one of us. Maybe I will take progress selfies. This makes it so easy, it would be just wrong to NOT give it a shot.
