A Year Later After Dad
Cell Phone Rudeness
Fit Bottomed Girls Latest Hits
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
Um, Where Did the Month Go?
I know I say this every few weeks but wow, where on earth does the time go? It’s been almost 6 weeks since I put down some news and notes on this here Blog. Why so long?
Yes, I have been busy which is a good thing. But I realized that on May 16th it was the first anniversary after losing Dad.
It’s been a tough year for sure and we all miss him terribly. I am still wondering if this is a horrible dream sometimes.
However, I have been lucky to have some of the greatest group of friends who have given me love and support at this difficult time. All I can say to them is “thank you.” And I hope any of you reading this post are as lucky as I am to have the support.
If you are ever unsure on what to say when someone experiences a loss and figure it is best to not say anything at all (in order to avoid saying the “wrong” thing)—let me just tell you one thing. All you ever have to say is “I am sorry for your loss.” Trust me—it does the job fine.
My family is in all kinds of states right now as to how they are handling the news one year later. Mom has decided to go a dream vacation to France and I couldn’t be happier for her. (Wish I could have tagged along, but oh well.)
Anyway—I had other things happen this past month so let us get to it, shall we?
Cell Phone Abusers
Do any of you have problems with students using cell phones in class? I feel as if it gets worse every year and I am not sure how to handle it any more. We have signs all over the place and I make an announcement at the beginning of class and yet I still get the occasional mobile phone scofflaw. How do you all handle this or how does your gym handle this if you are not an instructor?
Fit Bottomed Girls Hits:
As some of you know—I am a NYC contributor for the popular fitness Blog Fit Bottomed Girls and this month I have had some articles featured there including:
- An awesome Tabata workout from Nikki Metzger, Women’s Health Magazine Next Fitness Star who gave me her favorite kick-butt routine.
- I was lucky enough to meet two Olympians who will compete at the Summer Olympics—Gabby Douglas and Dana Vollmer! I wrote this piece for Fit Bottomed Mamas and each brought their moms to talk about how their maternal guidance helped them to become ace competitors. Both were just about as nice as you can imagine.
Next month I will post yet another interview I recently had with an Olympian! (Hint—she plays soccer.)
Whew–that’s it for me today! I will be back soon with magazine reviews, playlists, reviews and so much more. Happy soon-to-be Summer everyone!
