Today I am declaring a day of healing. I have a bit of soreness in my ankles and shoulders and I know through reading my body that it is time to pull it back and relax. My morning glucose reading is elevated to 105 which isn’t bad given that I ate a half of a baked potato with dinner last night, but my weight dropped to close to a pound and a half. The weight loss I can attribute to the continued run up the stair every hour at work so I believe that this is working.
Yesterday I did a phone interview with one of the public relations representatives at Bowflex. For me Bowflex has been a major part of my recovery process and I wanted to share my story. It is a product that I believe in and know that without it I may not have come as far as I did. Phone interviews are a bit tough to do, especially at work and I do hope that I got all of my facts correct, but I believe that I did. If the article get’s published I will share it here on my blog.
You may have noticed that I placed a Bowflex banner on the right side of my website. This is a decision that was difficult for me to make because as you know, I am a minimalist and I really wanted to keep my blog advertisement free. Recently I have had a change of heart about this after reading the book “Stuffocation”. Even a minimalist buys things, but the difference is that we buy things that bring value to our lives. I can say that the Bowflex machine has brought great value to my life as I use it just about everyday.
Another company that brings value to my life is Amazon.com. Although I don’t purchase a lot of products through them they have been of great value to me as I love to download a book from the Kindle Store to my Iphone at a discounted price and be able to read the book anywhere I have my phone. I am thinking about creating a page under the top tab called, “The Books I Read”. On that page I will list just those books that have brought value to my life.
With both these options it of course means that I will earn a small amount of money, but as you know a WP Premium Site costs about 100.00 per year. I figure that I may be able to cover that cost through just this little bit of advertising. Why not? Of course I will not be placing any ad on my site that I don’t truly believe in or hasn’t proven over time to be of great value, it has to be something that has improved my life. And I will not flood my pages with ads just for the sake of making money. Man, I hate when people do this. I hope no one feels offended by these choices and if you do please let me know.
