You all seemed to be very grateful for the prompts in 30 Ideas for Blog Posts When Your Mind Draws a Blank & the Accountability partner in Know Your Personnel: The Right Mix of Blog Friends & Real Friends was pretty popular as well.  This all got me to thinking that maybe I should turn this post into a link up!

Know Your Personnel – The Right Mix of Real Friends & Blog Friends

If you played any sports, then KYP is probably not an unfamiliar term. Know Your Personnel  is a motto that will make or break you in sports, on the job, in general life, & in blogging. Today for My Health Monday, I’m blending some personal/mental health with some blog chat!

Know Your Personnel - The Right Mix of Real Friends & Blog Friends - Rx Fitness Lady

I actually love making new friends primarily because friends serve different purposes. This is the exact point that Valerie Burton made with her post “6 Types of Friends Every Woman Should Have!” This post was inspired by her weekly devotion. You may remember her from my post 20 Influential Women in a Tweet.

Why I Joined the Les Mills Instructor Tribe

First things first! What do you think of the blogs new look?  I was able to maximize the use of some of my Fitness Photos 🙂  Well it’s not totally new, but a few issues have hopefully been resolved.

Last week for Act-Fit Friday, I shared a Review of Les Mills BODYPUMP 86. I saw this prompt on the BODYPUMP facebook fanpage and I decided to post about it.

Why I Think Everyone Should Take a Vacation

Everyone that works for somebody or for themselves needs vacation.  I get really tired of explaining to people that even though I get 7 days off at a time, it’s not like vacation every other week. I know you don’t understand it, but just trust me…it’s hard to work an overnight shift 7 days straight.

Anywho, every year I take my entire work week off which results in a 3 week vacation for me.  Carli and Veronica were gracious enough to give me a tiny break from the blog while I enjoyed that time.

This is the final vacation post, but I wanted to share because I think EVERYONE should use their vacation days, because we all deserve a break & it increases your morale on the job.

I recently read in a study, that several people don’t take vacation….here is some inspiration…nothing major, just NOT WORKING!!!!

Well kind of, I started my first week off teaching these lovelies at VBS!
