2020 is halfway thru. The US people are approaching an election in November that can’t come soon enough. We went thru sheltering in place. We have also survived the loudest and most annoying July 4th. What do we have to show for it?
Kanye West announced he will run for the US presidency this year. People are gathering at beaches, not social distancing, all while cases reaching all-time highs in some states. And numerous burnt down homes because of illegal fireworks constantly going off. I can’t say it’s looking good.
What we do have control of is what we do as individuals. We can register to vote, send in our ballot and encourage others to vote. We can wear a mask to be considerate of other people’s well-being. And we try to live our best lives.
No socializing for me this holiday! I experienced curbside shopping for the first time with Best Buy. I was in need of a charger for my Microsoft Surface since USPS failed to successfully deliver my Amazon order. The placement of my item thru my passenger window as I sat in parking spot #4 and the CSR walking away was an interesting experience. Then, I headed to the grocery store for something to grill to somewhat participate this holiday.
Before that, I had a long workout session as the house with picking up some weights and doing a Strong Zumba video that is free on Amazon Prime. To my surprise, the Venezuelan hottie I follow on Instagram that is Michelle Lewin was in the video! I also took before photos and made a commitment to do more to get back to being a bit more fit. Nope! There is no way I’m posting those so don’t ask! This quarantine has me sitting on my bottom majority of the day and eating a lot. With four projects on my hands now, I cannot allow my health to take a backseat. I have to work it into my busy schedule. With that, I need support.
I started a new group on Facebook called “Status: Work in Progress.” We are all a work in progress. I had a FB group for when I did Bodybuilding.com fitness challenges. The challenges really motivated me. Per a response to my Tweet, they will no longer be doing the challenges. With this new FB group, I hope to motivate my friends to live an active lifestyle, eat healthy, and give them a safe, positive place to brag about their fitness accomplishments. I love seeing my friends post-workout pics. They motivate me. I am happy they are working on themselves, FOR themselves. This will be a safe place for that. No judgments, just support. Sweat is sexy!
