I can’t believe it’s happened again. Okay, I guess I can believe it’s happened again, but I hate to admit it. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in. As law enforcement tries to figure out who did it, and why they did it, I remain in shock. For me, it doesn’t matter who did it or why they did it. For me, it only matters that they did it. They managed to take a holiday, and turn it on its head. There were literally thousands of people there, each living out their lifelong dream to complete the most coveted Boston Marathon. Then, in the blink of an eye, someone decided to ruin it all.

Praying For Boston

We Continue To Pray

Our prayers are with the victims of this senseless act of terror. As a company that delivers fun to children, we at All American Inflatables can’t understand how someone could willingly take the life of an innocent 8-year-old child. We continue to pray for the entire city of Boston.

The great thing about a time like this is that we are able to show the rest of the world what it means to be an American. We are no longer Republicans or Democrats. We are only Americans, standing together with our brothers and sisters in Boston. We will not allow the enemy (whomever they are) to tear us down. I watch in amazement as so many brave people go running in, even while bombs are continuing to go off. The first responders put their lives on the line to save others. Instead of focusing on the bad, I choose to focus on the good. There is soooo much good to be found in this country. No matter how hard they try, no terrorist can take that away!

We continue to pray…

Healthy Living

Fruits And Vegetables Are Great For Healthy Living

Starting a new year usually comes with resolutions for healthy living. Unfortunately, many of us fail to meet our goals throughout the year for a variety of reasons. In today’s world, though, there are many plans and tips available to help make healthy living a reality. Here are 5 tips to make 2013 the year for real, life-changing differences.

  1. Have a plan. Outline the changes that you’d like to make and make a schedule that fits these changes in. Actually writing your plan will make it easier to see and follow.
  2. Make specific goals. Make SMART goals. Make your goals Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
  3. Track what you eat. For a great tracking app/support network, try www.loseit.com. They have an app for smart phones that is amazing. You can quickly scan bar codes and retrieve nutritional information as well as hundreds of restaurant menus. For added support, join one of their support groups.
  4. Eat breakfast! Many people avoid breakfast thinking they are smart to eat fewer calories by missing a meal. However, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Make time to make a healthy breakfast a priority. It will give you energy to be able to make it through the day.
  5. Take it slow. A lot of people fail because they try to accomplish too much too quickly and quickly burn out from exhaustion. It’s good to take it slow to develop habits that will stick. For a great, slow workout plan that will have you running a 5 K in less than three months, check out the Couch To 5K Website.
