Thanksgiving Gratitude – This Blog is My Baby

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.

Thanksgiving Gratitude - This Blog is My Baby


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. 

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for each of you taking time to come here and spend a few of your very precious moments with me whenever you can.

Specifically for;

  • Engaging on this blog from day 1 and offering feedback
  • Sending me text messages, Facebook messages, and emails of encouragement, topic requests, constructive criticisms/corrections, or just to say hello
  • For bloggers connecting with me outside of the blog world and showing me how to promote my blog content to readers
  • People who have guest posted on this blog and shared your life experiences or expertise with the PFL readers
  • Attending and supporting my first attempt of hosting a blog event
  • Bloggers who’ve served as blogging & real life mentors
  • People who never comment on this blog but causally mention details from multiple posts whenever they get an opportunity while conversing with me 🙂
  • You allowing me to challenge myself with my writing desires from childhood
  •  Your comments because they help me create new and improved content.

As simple as it sounds, it’s all motivation for me to continue on this blogging journey! I hope that my advice and sharing of life experiences professionaly and personally,  in some way motivate & inspire you as well to “Live Healthy & Active. Be Prosperous.” 


Yours in Healthy, Active, & Prosperous Lifestyles,

P.S. Be on the look out for an email from me for the Holly Bloggy Christmas Party!

  1. You have a platform to help others especially in this fitness world and I love that. Thank you for being a supporting blogger and for being encouraging you and a few others have made me seriously look at exercising like I never have before.

  2. This is the reason for the season. I love reading all of the grateful posts that come about this week.

    You already know I love your site, but just in case….I love the strong, vibrant community that you have built here. Hope that we get to meet one day in person! xo

  3. I always call my blog my “third baby.” Honestly I have learned a lot from you in many ways – about being healthy, marketing myself better and getting comments on blogs! Yes, I will never forget your famous post about getting more comments. It was my first taste of your writing!
    I haven’t missed a post since.

    • You have mastered blog comments my friend! It is out of control over there. I have no clue how you are able to keep up darling!

    • I know you are busy Kalley! Much love to you for when you do get time to comment. You have had a lot of transitions this year! I appreciate your reading!

  4. You have been one of my absolute favorite bloggers from the beginning. I love your honesty, your passion for health and fitness and your humor. I look forward to reading your posts and hopefully, someday to meet you IRL. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    • Thanks Sherelle! I think all of us bloggers realize that this blogging thing is another J.O.B.! I’m happy to do it though! Thank you for supporting!

  5. Ok, blog soulmate! I did a Thanksgiving gratitude post today too. Of course! LOL. For as much as you have been inspired by your blog, so have all of us. As my grandmother would say, you tell it like it T-I-Is! (I just nod my head.) I am making more of an effort now and for the new year to exercise and take better care of my body. I have been motivated by your posts and the connection that I made with Kim (Day With KT) and Allie (VitaTrain4Life) through your blog.

    Good for you that you will have time off for the holidays. I am looking forward to the Holly Bloggy Christmas Party!

  6. Awe! Such a sweet message.Your blog really is your baby. I have two. My blog and my cat. 🙂

    I have enjoyed every one of your posts, Joi. And I don’t even think I’ve missed any since I found your blog. Thank you for inspiring everyone!

    The way that you’ve nurtured and grow this blog, your baby, is a testament to your hard work, leadership and tenacity. Thank YOU my dear for being your authentic self.

    • I’m pretty excited Brittnei! It’s been a long time coming. It’s one of the pitfalls of working in healthcare, we simply can’t shut down 🙁

      Thank you for being a supporter! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you!

  9. I love your blog. I know I have not been as frequent of a traveler lately, but when I am in the area, I always love stopping here and seeing what you are up to. Your words are always a gift.

    • I feel that you are the gifted one. We all have experiences worth sharing in my opinion but you have a very special way of conveying the message. I will NEVER forget that one guest post of yours, the only post that has made me cry this year in blogging, I was hooked on your writing after that and you never disappoint no matter how sad, awkward, or happy the experience maybe. You have a way of “teaching” a lesson to us all with it. I absolutely LOVE it!

  10. I LOVE YOUR DEDICATION SO MUCH. You and I have the same dedication. My blog is my baby as well, a form of an outlet. I love connecting with other bloggers too. I mean, that’s how I got connected with you and if we didn’t have blogs, that just wouldn’t have happened! And you know if you ever come to LA – you have a place to stay!
