Hey FitFam,

First off, I would like to say thank you to everyone for being patient with me this weekend, I had a lot of positive comments on my post about “my personal body battle”, I wasn’t able to respond to all of you because I spend the weekend away from my blog, but I appreciate all of the support and hope that many of you will see it as an inspiration, feel free to share it on your social media, I don’t mind. Secondly, John did not go to the gym the last 3 days as instructed because he said he was busy, I didn’t see him today at the gym, but I am hoping he went earlier. Tomorrow we plan on seeing each other at the gym, so hopefully that will happen. Happy Halloween!

I have the link to my interview over podcast that is now published and I will share it with you all in another post, so also be on the lookout for that as well.

I spent Sunday watching the new episode of  “The Walking Dead”, if anyone else watched it, let me know what you think of that particular episode, it definitely made me feel like I was watching a different channel, lol.
