I have an unusual (maybe not) habit. When my alarm goes off, I grab my iphone – no matter how early, and I check my email, the weather and (gasp) facebook.
This morning I was greeted with this:
As I had to be at work at an AWFUL time this morning and wanted to get to the gym beforehand..it was AWFULLY early. Therefore I remember thinking “talk about overreacting..it wasn’t that bad”.
Then I got to the gym and realized I forgot my ipad (what the heck?!) so I watched the news and discovered… (well first of all, I discovered that I dislike watching the news while working out, talk about a lack of motivation) but I also discovered that brother bear was CORRECT! What the heck happened this week?!
You know it is a sad news day when every single story is prefaced with ”warning: disturbing content”. I don’t know why I hadn’t clued in to the “depravity of humanity” earlier this week, I guess I was just busy… reading health and fitness blogs, working out, working…ya know – the usual.
This makes me wonder. Bad stuff is going to happen all the time. It is happening as I type. So do I really need to be aware of this? Is ignorance bliss? Should I continue to watch “Bethenny” when on the stairmaster?! OR, is being aware useful?
I like current events as much as the next girl, but not when I have to advert my eyes because the news is just too darn sad/scary/gory.
I don’t know – What say you?
Worth mentioning? Day #1 of the Salad Challenge!! I’m stealing this girl’s salad for dinner tonight.. BBQ sauce as Salad Dressing… Genius? We shall see.
Also? This Girl is hosting a photoaday June challenge. Already missed day one – unless a photo of my brother’s facebook status taken this am counts… I want to take more pictures. But can I commit to one photo a day?! We shall see.
After work I’m heading to a local park to hang out with my favorite Pilates instructor/fellow allergy sufferer/hilarious friend for a hike/walk… We FINALLY have sun and I’m going to soak up every single last ray!
Enjoy the day!
