Hey folks, I realize that we’re a number of days into August already, but I’d appreciate it if we could all overlook for just a few minutes the fact that July is well gone by now. For the sake of this post. Sound good? Good.

What a month it has been! July has flown by and I’m only just realizing now that I’ve been working as an intern at Cressey Performance for over a month now. The days really just start to blur together when the hours are long and you come home exhausted every night. I’m practically shitting rainbows over how much I’ve been learning and the incredible people I’ve met so far. Boston is wicked nice, too – though a part of miss does feel a twinge of longing for California, my home for the past seven years.

I thought I’d slip in here one more time before the month of May ended to wrap everything up and tie together some loose ends. These past couple of weeks have flown by, what with everything going on, so I think it’s only appropriate that I slow down for a second here and highlight some thoughts/happenings of mine. I’ll cover both fitness and non-fitness related topics below; I apologize in advance if it seems a little ADD. I’m just going to start rambling here so bear with me.

Nobody ever said it was going to be easy. In fact, you were warned time and time again that it was going to be hard. And there would be times when you’d want to give up and stop trying so damn hard. That you’d be betrayed, lied to, rejected, cheated on, and stabbed in the heart. That even your most trusted allies would turn around and abandon you without so much as a second glance back.

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been eerily quiet for the better part of the month, and I apologize for that. Times have been hard as of late, and I’ve been unable to produce quality writing. But I believe I’ve found my groove again and I’m more than excited to be back. I learned a few things over the past couple of months that I wish to share with you today.

Today’s post is a little different and the idea for it came as I was brainstorming topics the other night. I always enjoy when fitness writers make lists of any kind, so I hope you can appreciate this one. What started out as a simple “25 signs” list quickly morphed into a much more interesting “50 signs” list complete with animated gifs, given that they’re all the rage nowadays.

Just about all of these gifs are from whatshouldwecallme (I’m not nearly creative enough – or skilled enough – to create these on my own), and the reality TV show gifs are from here.
