Movember and it’s all about men’s health! I’ve been sitting here for quite awhile thinking of what to say… and looking at the clock. At 3:15 pm… it’ll be 9 years since my grandfather passed away from what prostate cancer did to him.
Family gathered at the hospice house where my grandfather went after complications at the hospital. We all waited as the folks at hospice made him as comfortable as possible. I sat by his bedside and held his hand. Watching someone take their last breath is always difficult. But I have lots of happy memories of my grandfather.
At 90 years-old, he lived a very full life. I just wish the last couple years hadn’t been so rough. So, Movember… a cause for the month of November for all of us to look at the men in our lives and think about their good health. This year, I’m a Mo Sista with @rockville_audi. Hoping to raise funds as well as awareness this month. If you’re interested in donating, here’s my Movember page!
Tell me… are you participating in Movember?
Many thanks to Debra (@momsofamerica) for having me join her at the #FallFitness event at the Microsoft Store! Great to see friends join us to jump start getting fit – especially the day before Halloween!
Such a great time seeing the new wearable tech from Microsoft, but also checking out the XBOX ONE! Definitely motivating to watch my friend Jose (@jose_a_24) doing the workout and flexing his muscles!
Earlier in the morning, a friend had mentioned Microsoft launching new wearable tech. I had also seen a couple tweets about the new Microsoft Band. Was super excited the store had it so we could take a look!
The band looked cool sitting on the display. Of course, I really wanted to check it out so, the staff were very friendly in explaining the band and how it worked… plus, they showed us the cool features! Check out the different screens below!
And to see it all in motion … here’s a quick video!
Yes, I had to test the band and check my heart rate! Not too bad, but there’s always room for improvement!
Looking forward to hearing what folks think about the Microsoft Band. If you got one, let me know what you think of it!
