Rockstar Moments, February 23

rockstars of the week tippy toe diet

Losing weight or maintaining a loss is difficult enough when we’re able to move freely and frequently. To maintain the focus and intention when we’re not at 100% is remarkable.

With that in mind, this week I’m highlight four bloggers near and dear to my heart. I admire them for their insights and wisdom during ordinary times, but the tenacity and perseverance each has exhibited during illness and injury makes them rockstars in my book!

Standing O for these extraordinary women for showing us how to dig in when it might feel like a time to give in!

I rocked along nicely this week, with my exercise, nutrition, and happy thoughts in place. I do giggle a bit that this is what I consider a normal week these days. So very different than a few years ago.

One thing I was especially pleased with completing this week was a short series of posts on my other blog about using images appropriately in blog posts, specifically other people’s images. I’m not an expert on the subject, by any stretch, but if you’d like to learn more and also read a horror story about someone who learned about copyright the hard (and expensive) way, the series starts with Proper Use of Images in Blog Posts, Part 1. As a creative type whose words have been stolen and used inappropriately, I want to make sure I properly honor other people’s work as I blog along here. I shared what I’ve learned hoping other people will do the same.

But enough about me–did YOU have any rockstar moments this week? Share! Share!

  1. I’ve had a good week. No particular RockStar moments except good results at doctor’s office which I’ve already told you about! Have a good weekend!

    • I’m playing catch-up here, but those were some awesome comments by your doctor!

      (Oh, and as for the BFFiET comment on my last post–that was a shoe-in! :) )

  2. I am astounded by the copy write information and the lengths that photographer went to in order to make a point or get money. I have gone to Google images several times for pictures, and I have seen my own pictures on there. I’m assuming I gave them permission to do that somewhere in some fine print I didn’t read. From this point forward, I will use my own pictures or the clip-art service we pay to use. Thanks for the info. :)

    • I’m so glad you found the article useful, Caron! I think there’s a huge misunderstanding of Google Images, and I knew I wasn’t the only one. :) Just because it’s there doesn’t mean we should use it and certainly not without attribution. We wouldn’t think of using someone else’s words without quoting them (I hope), so it makes sense that the same would hold true for images. While I understand the photographer addressing the unauthorized use of his photo, I would have accepted her apology and deletion of the image.

      Parts 2 & 3 of the series explain how to use Google images and Flickr appropriately. As it turns out, it’s not difficult at all!

  3. Looks like I have new people to seek out Cammy! I know Tami but I don’t think I know the rest. Thank you for highlighting them!

    I think I find something in every week to celebrate. Honestly, just living this change of life day to day is a rockstar moment to me if I survive the day! 😉

  4. This week I feel like an over-the-hill, beat up and way too old rockstar! 😀 The evidence of today is that body has been trying to fight off some bug and is losing. Ugh. Going to rest and drink herbal tea.

  5. Wow I am so honored and humbled to be called one of the Rockstars! I am both literally and figuratively trying to keep putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward.

    I have had Rockstar moments nearly everyday – being able to walk just a little bit faster on my treadmill, getting to walk outside on my old neighborhood route – so exciting for me to see how things look after 6 months of being couched. I bought a new pair of shoes that fit on my post surgery foot! These are all huge milestones for me and I don’t take any of them for granted.

    Let’s all rock on!
