Stay Connected


I am a bit obsessed with being connected to social media, texts, phone calls, etc. This is a blessing and a curse I know, but it is also part of my two jobs. I was chosen to return as a Verizon Wireless ambassador, and I am so excited to share some new info, tips, and tricks about my brand new phone….the Windows phone 8X by HTC! I am a PC girl, so this phone is right up my alley and I found myself able to learn it very quickly.

Why hello new phone. I love you and I don’t even know you.

Not only was I given a phone, but we also given this awesome OtterBox! I actually *cough* BOBBY *cough* a mishap with my Galaxy S3 from last time, and it got dropped and scrapped up because I had no case for it….so I was STOKED to get a case this time. So far I am loving it (it’s from the defender series) and don’t feel like I have to constantly worry about dropping my phone.

I can’t wait to share more about the device itself with you, I will be using #VZWA on Twitter when tweeting about it, so be on the lookout. So far my favorite thing is the live tiles! Staying connected is so easy with everything right on my home screen.


In other news, I started seeing a chiropractor again, and on top of already knowing I have neck and back problems, we talked about one hip being higher than the other which is probably throwing my bio mechanics off when I run, he is going to do some ART on me and also some stretches and exercises I can do to work on any muscular imbalances, etc. I am really hopeful about getting help for my body to improve my overall health and my running!

QOTD: Have you ever dropped your phone? Do you keep it in a case?

    I dropped my phone once, but my case protected it. Scared the crap out me though. Not so lucky when I dropped my iPod :(

    I’ve dropped my phone before but never damaged it thanks to the case? I once had left my phone on the bed and without thinking tossed a hairbrush on it. Totally cracked the screen!

    I just got windows 8 on my new computer so I’ll be interested to hear how it works on a phone.

    Ooooh Otter Boxes! I thought about one when I got my phone, but it just made my phone too bulky. So far so good…but I know a BUNCH of people who need them, or else their phones are done for.

    my galaxy was crushed-literally when I closed it in my truck door. I picked up a life proof case for my iPhone and LOVE it. I’ll never go without a case again!
    And Dr. J and I are quickly developing a love/hate relationship. My knees are so sore after ART. They hurt! But, I can already tell a difference when rolling. Now to strengthen my quads and hamstrings to help keep my knees tracking properly and to keep them from clicking every time I move.

    I dropped my phone on my walk back to the hotel after my most recent half. It’s protected by a case, but it still scared me.

    I live in the apple eco-system. I’m plugged into their products and it runs my household. (sorry).

    Hope to hear some progress on your recovery.

    I do not have a case for my phone. Only a transparent film in front to protect the glass. I drop it all the time! LOL Apparently the HTC Evo 4G LTE is pretty sturdy.

    My wife on the other hand… Decided it was a good idea during our Fantasy cruise to take a dip in the Mickey pool with her Galaxy S in her pocket. Needless to say, it did not survive. I think she just wanted a new phone. LOL
