Oh my gosh! I can’t believe I didn’t have internet for a week and couldn’t blog or social-medialize with any of you too much! It was good and bad. Good because I rested. Bad, because I felt so disconnected and couldn’t keep in touch with you guys!! I totally missed you!! But I’m back and will be blogging regularly again. I hope you didn’t lose interest in the meantime!!
Pardon me while I update you on some stuff.
I started a LinkedIn group and for those of you who are health and fitness bloggers and enthusiasts-almost-bloggers, you will like this LinkedIn group. I started it because I wanted a group I could network with on the more targeted issues health and fitness bloggers face. It’s called Health and Fitness Bloggers and I encourage you to join, and to join in on the discussions there. For now, it’s small, but it has been growing steadily, and I am treating it as though I have hundreds of members, even though I don’t. I want there to be TRUE networking and exchange of ideas in this group. And I also want it to be a place where we share and comment on each other’s posts. You can request to join via this link.
On another note, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can make this blog of more value, and I’m gearing toward writing more summaries, commentaries and so forth on journal articles–you know, those academic-type journals that no-one except professionals read that has a lot of dense language but that is also full of the most recent research and experimentation. Expect to see some articles from me devoted to this stuff. I’ve already got one I’m getting ready for you.
And then, for this particular post, I wanted to share with you my latest GOAL!!! I want to do the splits again!!! You might have read my yoga entry in this blog, and following up on this entry, I created a video, with a challenge for you. People, let me tell you: I am totally motivated and totally on top of things here and if you do this challenge with me, I guarantee you are going to be a lot further along in your flexibility than when you started IF you do this challenge with me. Even if you don’t want to do the splits, flexibility is so much more important to us expecially as we age. It can make the difference between breaking a bone or not. So PLEASE consider doing this challenge. I will be following up with stretch exercises you can do and with motivational tips. I really really, really hope you do this challenge with me. AND, I’m calling it the SPLITZ BLITZ challenge because I think we should all write about it on our respective blogs and storm the Internet world with our flexibilty endeavors!! Here’s the video!
If you want to do the splitz blitz challenge with me, even if you think you can’t do the splits but just want to do more stretches to get more flexible, please let me know in the comments! Lets go!!
