My blogger friend Dani over at That Fitness Chic is hosting a link up party on Wednesdays. I thought I would "weigh in" on a few things that I have seen around the web these last few days.
-Did you see THIS NEWS??? The very first episode of The Biggest Loser I watched was the season where Jillian trained the black team in the desert. They were the underdogs so of course I cheered for them! That season got me hooked and I have watched it every season since. I have laughed, cried, and hurt for the contestants. They have inspired and motivated me and even now, several years later, I draw inspiration from so many of them- Tara holding her wall squat with a medicine ball for over 30 minutes, Tara pulling a car (twice), Ashley holding her own on the treadmill after a disaster on her first day, the multiple health problems being resolved, Ali being the first female winner, Michelle also winning and her witness today, and so many more! I am thrilled that the show will be back on in January and as a teacher I am even more thrilled with a change in perspective on the side. I have become more and more passionate about setting that example for the students and trying to figure out how to do that the best way.
-The following is one of my favorite pins these days. After my last post (and my
posting on FB of some pictures) I was lamenting the fact that I still had so far to go and one of my friends reminded me that I KNOW where my strength comes from, I know WHY I am doing this, and I know WHO I am doing this for.
-Lindsay, over at The Lean Green Bean, has a post from Tuesday with 50 Packable Lunch Ideas. I haven't finished looking at them all but I have plans to go back and peruse this when I have time. I pack my lunch daily and I am on the hunt for lunch ideas all the time. Lindsay is in school to be a registered dietician and lives in the Columbus, Ohio area (Go Buckeyes)!
