Yeah I JUST Got an iPhone and Lost a Facebook Friend

Okay I finally got an iPhone. I loved my droid, but he was dying and the new ones are too big, so I finally got an iPhone. I love it so much. I got the 4 because it was free and because I like it. I like the size, I don't need a phone that's as big as an iPad mini. This one is perfect and did I mention the price was right. My plan went down $25 dollars a month with the iPhone so it not only cost me nothing, it's saving me money.

I actually lost a FB two weeks ago because he was throwing a fit that I didn't get the 5 or wait for the 5S. Now I don't understand this behavior, it's my phone, why do you care?

He sent me SEVERAL nasty FB messages basically calling me stupid and arguing with me about MY upgrade, even though he doesn't work for the phone carrier I am with and doesn't know what my plan is.

You know how mobile phone companies are, everyone on a different deal-like renting an apt from a big company, everyone is different.

This person could NOT stand it that I didn't wait for the biggest and best one. Look, I don't need Siri, I don't need a finger scan, I don't need a phone with 600GB of RAM or whatever ridiculous amount there is. My droid didn't even have 1GB and guess what? I never came close to using it, not even close.

But even if I did, shouldn't it be MY choice what phone I get? I mean, why did it upset this person so much?

I had to block him because his rant went on for days. He kept telling me that I needed to be grateful because he was teaching me, the stupid girl, about things. Like I didn't know that iPhone 5S was coming out. I am a grown up and I made the choice based on my needs and price. That said, being gracious, I thanked him several times and asked him to drop it, and he wouldn't.

I still don't know why he cares.

It's none of anyone's business.

This all said, iPhone 4 and 4s are both AWESOME phones and I remember when they came out how much they were loved, and not everyone is planning on which Apple store to camp out at for a $700 phone, a PHONE for that much! Wow, now that is something I don't understand, but to each his own.

I love my 4!!

What this experience has taught me, you can't talk about; religion, politics or Apple products... sigh..

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
