Friday Five – don’t buy these at Trader Joes

Yesterday morning I ran 3 miles…..outside! And they were fast-ish which made me all giddy inside. I was worried after running on the treadmill for a while with my industrial strength, super fan that I wouldn’t be able to handle the heat, but I did.

Now, let’s talk about some things that happened this week.

First, let’s talk about Josh Duggar.  WTF? I don’t buy for a minute that these were ‘mistakes’ made during his teenage years. Something is wrong here, terribly wrong. I also find the details of Mr. Duggar’s exile for ‘training’ questionable at best. There are reports of multiple victims including his own sisters. This entire report sickens me.  If you haven’t heard about it, please click on the link above.

If you watch anything at all today, please take a few minutes to watch Rachael’s video. Rachael is suffering from anorexia and she is literally dying. She posted this video on YouTube because she really does want to get better, but without help, she won’t.

I warn you, it is painful to watch.

My prayers are with this girl and I really hope she makes it.

In truth I read this next article because the headline kind of grabbed my attention but I’m sharing it with you because it’s on point. I don’t think I’m alone when I say I tend to ignore pain from time to time but maybe, armed with this info, I’ll never ignore anything possibly life threatening and hopefully, neither will you.

This article pretty much sums up what I’ve been saying for a few years, there are some things you should never buy from Trader Joe’s.

And I’m going to end this post as I started it, talking about running.  Only, this conversation is more of a warning.

If you run in the Tampa Bay especially in the Lakeland area, be careful. A runner was attacked this week near Lake Hollingsworth Drive. When you’re out there running be aware of your surroundings, pay attention and take all of the necessary steps you can to ensure that you are safe.

I hope you have an awesome weekend and I hope you’re lucky enough to get 3 days off.
