Dear Readers of Rx Fitness Lady,
I hope that all is well with you during the start of this holiday season. I am really feeling thankful this year because for the first time in 8 holiday seasons I’ll be off from work for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, WHOOP! Today, I’ve been inspired to write to you with a spirit of gratefulness.
This blog has been therapy for me that I didn’t even know I needed. All though I started it to position myself as more of an authority in fitness, it quickly turned into my baby.
Happy Hump Day PFL!
Today I’m turning the blog over to a regular reader & commenter of PFL who happens to be my very dear friend for 14 years from FVSU and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.. I promise you that reading this post will bless your day. Join me in celebrating the journey of Arnethia Day as Rx Fitness Lady recognizes National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
October is very near and dear to my heart. Reason #1 is that both of my precious girls were born in this month. As of 10/9, they are both 10 years old until 10/27, only 11 months apart. Needless to say they were both VERY unexpected blessings My youngest daughter Lanaia was actually born at 26 weeks gestation at a whopping 2 lbs 5.6 ounces. They are healthy, independent, and talented young ladies. Continue reading
Did you see the episode of Law & Order last season where it started with the disoriented young lady strolling into the pharmacy and requesting a Plan B pill?
The pharmacist was very rude and judgmental then proceeded to lecture the girl about safe sex, abstinence, etc.. Unbeknownst to the pharmacist, she had been raped.
That was very extreme in my opinion, but the fact of the matter is; by law, pharmacists have the right not to sell Plan B if they don’t want to.
I was thinking of using this post for the 2nd Mini Blog Challenge Party Controversial topic, but chose to discuss a hot spot for me “If you say “She’s Cute to be Dark-Skinned””!
A few weeks ago in Sunday School, we discussed the controversy amongst pharmacists (To Sell or NOT to Sell). I thought I’d chat with you here at Rx Fitness Lady for a hot My Health Monday topic.
Again I say, THE FLU SHOT IS NOT MAKING YOU SICK!
I’m playing catch up with Kim’s September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge!
Sunday, September 22, 2013′s prompt: Resurgence. Provide links to some of your posts that did not receive as much traffic or as many comments as you hoped.
IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN YALL!
I was motivated last month to get my 2013-14 flu shot after the overly anxious overnight shift crew nagged me to give them their shots!
EAGER TARGET #1
It is true that white men have the highest risk of attempting suicide. Women and teens have had reported attempts as well.
No one is excluded from the possibility!
A young white man that I used to baby sit when I was a teenager, committed suicide at the age of 21 right when I came out of pharmacy school.
I had a cultural eye opener a few summers ago when 2 suicides of young black men occurred within 1 week & I experienced the community fall out surrounding those 2 incidents.
Just this summer, I had an older white female patient commit suicide.
That is a diverse pool of people!
For My Health Monday, I am bringing awareness on Rx Fitness Lady for the observance of “World Suicide Prevention Day” tomorrow, September 10th. You can click the link to get a wealth of information or here for the prevention lifeline.
My collegiate coach from FVSU retired this year. I missed Coach Bartley’s retirement banquet a few weekends ago because I was working.
While I was up late that night at the pharmacy, I got some text messages from my former roommate/teammate that made my night.
ONE TIME FOR THOSE ARMS OF 20 Y/O COLLEGIATE ATHLETE JOI !
Maria #5, sen’t me the pictures! She was my roommate in the dorm. Tootie, #34 was my roommate on the road! I love them both! Continue reading
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!
Great prompt that can help hold us all accountable! It’s something about writing something down and sharing that increases your success rate drastically!
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!
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.
Welcome to my first blog event: the 7 Day Mini Blog Challenge Party! Today’s topic for bloggers participating was “Solve a Problem for Your Readers”.
PROBLEM SOLVED !
In response to the survey I posted at the first of the month and the resounding consensus on the lack of weight loss posts on PFL, I have created a PFL Campaign! Unfortunately, there isn’t a magic weight loss pill or secret ! However, with some sound principles, a deep commitment, and a support system, we can make it happen!
