The Holidays can be a Hard and Lonely Time

Push-ups!!!  It’s been a long week of very little activity and avoiding movements that make me move my head but today I did a variation of one of my favorite moves for the 44!!!  

I used a foam roller – Foam Roller

to do push-ups.  (not sure why it looks like I have a huge bald circle???)


This was a bit rough today but 44 push-ups always makes me feel semi-strong!!!

Looking around, there are so many people who struggle during this time of year.  Society “tells you” that you should be Merry and Bright  but sometimes that is hard for a number of reasons.

This year we decided to start a new tradition and hopefully reach out to some of those who are lonely and feeling left out during this time of year.

I hope that this becomes a new yearly tradition and a way to spend time with friends both old and new!!!

Happy Thursday!
