Childhood Obesity Vlog

 

Good morning! I am actually away/busy this weekend, but here is something fun I filmed for you yesterday before the craziness started. I decided due to some coaxing from some blends to do some more vlogs. I have some great ideas for some fun and action packed ones for when I am out of the boot, but for now you just have to listen to me talk. Smile

Today’s vlog is about something near and dear to my heart, the childhood (and college student) obesity epidemic. Hear what I have to say on the matter, and I would LOVE your feedback! I will “recap” below the post in case you don’t have speakers/don’t want to wake your entire family up by listening to my dog growl at me in my video. Enjoy!

Oh boy. Yes, my dog DOES growl to be held, like a child. Well, kids don’t growl…I hope. Anyway, as a recap:

-Obesity in children and young adults is worse than ever

-College students need better education on healthy habits and eating/exercise coming into an already overwhelming Freshman year.

-kids need to step away from the screen and go PLAY outside.

-PARENTS need to take responsibility for instilling healthy habits, and with the help of schools and the community, we need to come up with more ways to fix this problem.

QOTD: My questions for you:

1.) What can we do as a parent/teacher/member of a community do to fix this

2.) What do you already do/implement as a parent/teacher/community member to teach children and young adults healthy habits? I would love to start some discussion!

…aaannnddd for your enjoyment, I present you this six second little gem. By the way, the last word I am saying (which sadly got cut off) is “fail!”

Accent Vlog

 

Hello friends! It’s so YUCKY here. Rain and ice. I am really nervous about driving back to Mississippi in it. I hope it’s gone in a couple hours! Ok, so I finally got around to doing my accent vlog. I think I sound PERFECTLY normal. What do you think?

here we go….

(PS please ignore the amount of times I said um. I had NO idea I was doing it, and must stop! Didn’t feel like reshooting the video though. I am actually a decent public speaker so I am not sure what the deal was!)

So, any words I say funny? Is that how you expected me to sound? I need feedback people! I am nervous I am going to lose followers because I sound like a nerd. 🙂

Have a great day and stay safe out there. I will be blogging from Mississippi tomorrow!
