Reinventing the wheel of MY LIFE.

It’s September 30, 2018, 3 more months of 2018 and it comes to an end and I want this year to go away. But for the next few months I will look at life a different way. “Your outlook on life is a direct reflection on how much you like yourself.” ~Lululemon That quote says…

Not what you expected at 47…

Being 47 has been hard, and especially in 2018. I’m not going to lie, it’s been really rough. Most of the time I’ve felt emotionally and mentally drained. But what I’ve learned most within these past few months, is to love fiercely. I am usually an open book, but I closed those chapters because I…

Is life really better with sisters?

I am sure I will get plenty of grief for this blog, but I am also sure that I am not the only one that feels this way. Let me start off by saying, I know I have a lot of “sister” friends, but I don’t have any blood sisters. What God and my parents…

What makes us a couple….

“I don’t believe in being or having incomplete partners. I want to be her fitness accountability partner, her travel companion, and her healer. I want her to be my source of passion, my cheerleader, and my safe haven from this mad world. I want us both to give everything we have to each other.” Sylvester McNutt This…

dear 2017…

…I leave you behind. Most end of the year blogs begin with being thankful for the year. Well, I am not, it’s 2018 and I am ready for you! I am ready to move forward this year and be happy. I will learn to live in the moment, plan a great future and travel more…

Birthday Blog

In a few hours I will say goodbye to another year in the life of Jo Ann Rosenbloom. I am grateful and lucky to be able to celebrate another year. Though at times it can be exhausting and I feel that I’ve accomplished so little,  I am reminded how blessed I am. Yes, 46 yrs…

Disconnected

There’s a disconnection between us, there’s no life.  There’s a disconnection among us, there’s no space.  There’s happiness, there’s hate.  There’s faith, there’s disappointment.  There’s a disconnection between us, there’s no life.  We pass by each other and smile, but no words.  We look at each other, but don’t see eye to eye.  We look…

The CrossFit Open 2017 – My Journey

Someone recently asked me about my experience during the Crossfit Open 2017. All I could say is that I am ready to try it all over again in 2018! I went in knowing that I was going to do my best to accomplish a few movements and overcome the fear of failing. The excitement and…

My First CrossFit Competition

Whoo Hoo!! I survived my first CrossFit competition. It was rough but I had a lot of fun.   CrossFit Equality hosted an In-House Competition along with their 4 year Anniversary. There was an RX and Scaled division. We all competed together in Heats throughout the day. I, of course, was part of the Scaled…

The smell of memories….

This morning as I cooked chorizo and egg tacos for my husband and son, memories of my mom came flashing through my head. Back in the day, when my dad worked for Coca-Cola, my mother would wake up very early in the morning and make him breakfast and pack his lunch. The smell of coffee,…

I’ll show you my True Colors…

I started writing this blog a few weeks ago, but I stopped. It’s not easy to write a about an eating disorder. Especially when many that are close to you don’t know about it. So, here it goes…. I had an eating disorder and it began when I was 14yrs old,  and many years later…

Life is simply an invitation…

“To me life is simply an invitation to live.” – Sean O’Casey My 2 weeks off was amazing, but I am ready to get back to work. It was wonderful being able to take a mini vacay with my daughter and visit my brother, hit South Padre Island and have fun. I cleaned house, did much laundry and worked…
