People out there that say “lighten up”: The jokes in the article weren’t meant for me so they didn’t raise any laughs, but maybe they brightened your day. I don’t want to be around religious fanatics or militia people in Idaho. When I hear people whine about political correctness I just assume they haven’t grown up and learned to keep their mouths shut when they don’t have something nice to say about others. I hope you can “lighten up” enough to not be offended by that. Remember: Not all preppers are like you! 😉
Love hearing your story and can definitely empathize with the struggle against “blogger butt”! lol. Although, I admit, I hear the same thing from my holistic nutrition clients that work desk jobs too. It can be especially challenging when you take age, hormonal shifts, and the impact of stress into account (I dare say you’ve endured a tad bit of chronic stress over the past couple of years? 😉 ) Anyway, I enjoyed this little peek into what’s going on with you behind the scenes, and I pray you find a system that’s helpful to you physically, while also fostering a healthy and grateful attitude toward food and your body! Hugs!
The National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) has earned a reputation as one of the nation's best measures of student achievement in key subject areas. Since its inception in 1969, NAEP has summarized academic performance for the nation as a whole and, beginning in 1990, for the individual states. Increasingly, NAEP results get the attention of the press, the public, and policy makers. With this increasing prominence have come calls for reporting NAEP results below the national and state levels. Some education leaders argue that NAEP can provide important and useful information to local educators and policy makers. They want NAEP to serve as a district-level indicator of educational progress and call for NAEP results to be summarized at the school district level.
