Wow, I wasn't expecting that.........

I had an awesome pre-long holiday weekend workout with Dan last night.  I felt great and was looking forward to a long weekend.  As I was leaving, I saw a fellow Body Solutions member that I haven't seen in a while.  She is the kind of person that when she walks in and says hello in her sweet southern accent, everyone smiles. 

I stopped by her workout for a quick hello and she shared that she recently had a not so good biopsy and required chemo (details are a private matter).  WHOA!  I wasn't expecting to hear that.  We won't see her for a few months as she travels home to take her treatment.  The good news is she said its treatable, she's young, healthy & strong and all that works in your favor for sure.  My thoughts & prayers are with her. 

As I was driving home this is all I could think about....this fellow workouter and that you never know what you'll hear or experience so make each moment & day count for the most.  I guess that's why they call the "present" a "gift." 

I know she'll do well.  She's a strong girl, great mom and she has all of our thoughts & prayers from Atlanta with her every step of the way.  If she reads this some day.....just like when we are at Body Solutions trying to lose weight or lift weights - we are all in this together!

An apple a day keeps me healthy............

The folks @ Apple marketing got it goin on.........frustrating but genius.  When they launch a new product, they saturate the marketplace - TV, internet, print, everywhere.  You see it, you love it and you want it but wait..........YOU CAN'T HAVE IT.  Not yet anyway. 

Yesterday I got the emails @ the new iPods and just in time as I'm ready to trade up my Shuffle cause it's full  and I want more songs.  I'm lovin the new Nano and decide I gotta have it.  Race (during rush hour traffic) to the local Apple store.  Yep, you know how this is going.  Not available in stores until next week.  UGH!  I'm so not happy.  OK, I'll order online when I get home.  NOPE, not shipping for one week.  UGH!

No more excitement to run this weekend with lots of songs on my new Nano.  I guess I'm going to have to settle for excited to run this weekend AT THE BEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone have a great Labor Day weekend.
