FITx50 \ week 26

What do BL and I have in common? Other than an almost 50 year spread, we both love cheesecake. This was his first time tasting it. My sister had the great idea of sharing mine with the tyke.

End result – kid gets new treat and great uncle eats less cheesecake. Win – Win if you’re the one year old.

Kidding of course. This week has been fantastic as I returned to a regular schedule at Momentum Gym – I’ve heard all the crossfit horror stories, but seriously dude – use your head and moderation.

Oh, and most important – Keep your t-shirt on. No one wants to see man-boobs while doing box jumps. Well, not me anyway.

Remember March 11, 2015 is the date. Until then, stick to your goals and like Kim Lane always says: “Nothing tastes as good as good health.”

10-CODE: Written by Cops Honoring the Ultimate Sacrifice

Please SHARE this Message

“It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived.”

10-CODE is the first-ever anthology of stories written by 10 real-life cops honoring officers killed in the line of duty. Each author donated a fictional short story so that 100% of proceeds will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) in Washington, DC.

The authors, also sworn law enforcement officers have dedicated their respective works to a personal friend who has paid the ultimate sacrifice. While the stories may not recount the actual events, each author expressed the pain of reliving the loss of fellow officers.

New York Times best-selling author John Gilstrap’s heart-felt Foreword pays tribute to the service and sacrifices of our nation’s finest. NLEOMF CEO and President, Mr. Craig Floyd also promotes the Police Memorial’s support of 10-CODE by contributing the book’s Dedication.

Sworn Officers Kathy Bennett, Michael A. Black, Robin Burcell, Marco Conelli, Suzie Ivy, Rick McMahan, David Putnam, Mike Roche, Scott Silverii and David Swords selflessly donated their talents to honor the Fallen.

Paying homage to those who have sacrificed so we may know continued freedom is vital as a society. Showing respect and humanity for the loss of those who served is the purpose of 10-CODE.

Happy 2015. It’s been a great week for inching a bit closer to my goals for blasting the 50 year mark.

Momentum Gym has been incredible as always and it’s great to exercise among a community who also share similar goals.

I’ve not had a pinch of cake, ice cream or pizza this week either. Guess what? I’m in no need of a coroner’s hold either!!!

Have an awesomely lived weekend and here’s to getting fit.
Best of success Tami Mills-Merrill & Beth McCall Moore
