Why I Have I Hard Time Relating to The Winter Olympics

Why I Have I Hard Time Relating to The Winter Olympics Tagged with:

I love Olympic seasons, they only come around every two years and you get to see the best of the best from so many different places come together for the love of the game. When the summer games are on, you’ll frequently find my TV on whatever channel happens to be airing the games and I’ll stay up late to see an event finish.

Is It Time for Me to Use an Accessible Van?

Is It Time for Me to Use an Accessible Van? Tagged with:

 

For people whose disability requires using a wheelchair, it’s all about staying active and living life to the fullest. If it’s not, it should be. When your activities, dreams, and ambition are held back by a lack of suitable transportation, it might be time to think about getting a van equipped for accessibility.

It was a Bronze!

As we all gather around the TV to watch the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games in Sochi which will be starting on March 8th, remember that when cheering on Team USA and watching your favorite country/sport, one thing to keep in mind is that winning any medal is a culmination of a long journey filled with VERY HARD WORK!

OUCH!

In Sickness and in Health…
We didn’t actually say those words in our vows, I guess we figured it was kind of a “given”. We were married so it just comes with the territory; kind of like the weeds in your yard when you buy a house- you just have to deal with it. And we’ve had our share of sickness but nothing too major (unless you might count the tummy issues the hubs had last summer).
Well, this past weekend the hubs decided to test my love for him. It was a typical Saturday. He was out back making things with man toys, as all men like to do, and I was inside doing our taxes when all of a sudden I heard my name called in a manner that didn’t implicate that I should take my time getting there. As my heart sunk just a little, I dropped what I was doing and ran to the back deck. There in the middle of the yard next to the table saw, sat my husband holding his hand in the air with a fair amount of blood! He said, “I cut my hand”… so knowing my phone was inside I yelled back,” Is it something I can handle or do I need to call 911. He looks back at his hand for a split second and then responds… CALL 911!

“It’s not always about the Science”

“It’s not always about the Science” Tagged with:

In October, I stood in front of a group of health and fitness professionals and delivered a presentation about my fitness and walking program.  I spoke about why I started the program, provided examples of evidence-based methods that have been used to advance the work, and offered a glimpse of the “science” behind the approaches, routines, and daily workouts.  During the question-and-answer period, an audience member asked “What keeps you going?”

Married to the Chair- the Great Outdoors.

Married to the Chair- the Great Outdoors. Tagged with:

Over the holidays, while visiting my family in South Florida, we decided to enjoy some time in the great outdoors. I mean, why not – It’s December in Miami; about the only time of year it is actually pleasant enough to go outside down there. So we packed up the “fam” and headed even further south to the Keys to enjoy some time out in God’s creation. The hubs and I decided to “rough it” and go camping while the others also decided to “rough it” in city terms (which means they got an RV.)

Dr. Bloom and I have now been meeting for 18 months, nearly every Monday, for at least an hour.  I have a 43 page journal documenting these meetings from the first one in June of 2012 when the idea of acting as movement work was an experiment and we were not sure if it would ever happen again all the way to now, January 2014.  The experiment continues.
