Hey Everyone! It has been 2 years since I last posted a blog – and for that I apologize.
However, I am excited to say that I have recently started a new blog called Snohfit
Here, I blog about my fitness journey including experiencing every sport (including Extreme sports), have Athlete Spotlights (interviews and workout sessions with athletes), my workouts, what I eat, recipes, fitness fashion, and more! (all fitness & health related).
To learn how to make that Pesto Chicken pictured above, just click on the image for the Recipe
I also will post polls either there or on my Twitter asking what types of fitness challenges or other things that I should take on.
Please join my journey there as I work hard to produce engaging content~
Thanks for Reading!
Stay So Fit Snohfit!
Seriously though…make that Pesto Chicken – it is so easy & delicious~
I made a new fitness instagram account to keep me on track and also to be surrounded by people who are just as passionate, if not more, about fitness as I am. Follow me if you would like to be updated with my fitness journey/progress – what I eat – some exercises – random gym humor memes -and more 🙂
“What is it that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man’s breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him?
To know that you are walking where none others have walked;
that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before;
that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere.
To give birth to an idea–to discover a great thought — an intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a brain–plow had gone over before.
To find a new planet, to invent a new hinge, to find the way to make the lightnings carry your messages.
To be the first–that is the idea.
To do something, say something, see something, before any body else–these are the things that confer a pleasure compared with which other pleasures are tame and commonplace, other ecstasies cheap and trivial.
What is there in Rome for me to see that others have not seen before me?
What is there for me to touch that others have not touched?
What is there for me to feel, to learn, to hear, to know, that shall thrill me before it pass to others?
What can I discover?
One charm of travel dies here.
But if I were only a Roman!
–If, added to my own I could be gifted with modern Roman sloth, modern Roman superstition, and modern Romanboundlessness of ignorance, what bewildering worlds of unsuspected wonders I would discover!
Ah, if I were only a habitant of the Campagna five and twenty miles from Rome!
Then I would travel.”
An excerpt from The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain

Rome causes you to dig.
Something about it where there are layers and layers of history.
Where the architecture, the visuals, the air all exist horizontally and vertically.
This does not exist in many cities.
You get to discover so many different things.
You get random flashbacks to the past as you see pieces of history.
Buildings that have not been refurbished or mowed over.
Representations and reminders of what life was like and how things should not be taken for granted.

I am sure that it has been noticed before already:
where two Europeans or Latinos greet each other with a kiss/peck on each cheek.
I remember thinking that I could not do that and would feel super shy about it,
but I have adapted to it already and learned something interesting about it.
If you do not know of it, basically “Due Baci” (Dos besos) is a form of greeting that is common.
Rather than shaking hands, waving, or just simply saying “Hello”,
Italians (Europeans) say Ciao! (or any other form of Hello) and then proceed to kind of do this like
hug thing while kissing (with their cheeks mainly, not lips on the cheek) each cheek while making that kissing sound.
There is a slight difference in Italy compared to the rest of Europe concerning this
“2 Kiss” or Due Baci.
In Italy, you start with a kiss on the Right and then the Left.
On the otherhand, in the rest of Europe (mostly), you start with the Left and the Right.
So it could probably get awkward and confusing if this is not known of beforehand.
This seems to contribute to how Europeans are so open, touchy, and comfortable with each other,
even strangers, while in America and especially Asia, there is this like “comfort zone bubble of do not enter” around us.
