  1. I read the fitness instructor article when I saw you post it on Facebook this week and lean toward disagreeing with it as well. While I understand the popularity of the “body acceptance” movement and think it’s important to love yourself however you look, it is also okay to want to lose weight/be healthy and I think people are getting flack for that these days. As an instructor, I’m not going to be as harsh as saying “you won’t get a ring if you’re fat” or something along those lines, but A LOT of people are in my classes to burn fat/calories/lose weight so I think it’s okay to call out moves that burn major calories. One my favorites for arm workouts is, “Let’s pick up heavier weights this time and work on these arms, it’s ALWAYS tank top season in Naples.” LOL. And I’ve never had someone tell me I’m being rude or calling out chicken arms, etc ;)

    • That’s my perspective exactly! I had actually wanted to write a full-post rebuttal but hadn’t had a chance to do so last week… will hopefully happen tonight :)

  2. That article on reconnecting to people that you hadn’t interacted with for a while was super helpful I feel. I am SOOO terrible with keeping in touch with people – mostly because I feel like I often don’t have a reason to stay in touch. Need to fix that.

    I am NEVER a person of regret….. but man, that “you’ll regret these choices” article really hit home for some reason.
