5 Lessons Learned when I Shattered my iPhone

by Jennifer Hudy on September 15, 2014

in Me

I have always been an iPhone fan and you would think after dropping my phone hundreds of times, sans case, I would get smart and put the case back on it so that it wouldn’t have a clumsy demise. I am on my third generation of iPhone and was anxiously awaiting the arrival of the iPhone 6 so that I could upgrade to the next latest and greatest thing. I had been having some memory problems on my current iPhone 5 (oh, storing 4000 pictures on your phone isn’t normal?), so was looking forward to the fresh new start.

And then I dropped my phone for the last time.


It was one of those funny-not-funny moments, in which all I could do was laugh. I have dropped my phone in the snow, in a puddle, down a flight of stairs, off my concrete front porch. It has fallen from my coat pocket, out of my car door, and out of my hand many times on rock-hard cement, gravel, and sand.

But this time, my elbow grazed the phone as I was making my Bulletproof coffee, knocking my precious iPhone off of the kitchen countertop and onto my cheap, faux-linoleum fairly soft, stick-on tile. Since I was quite familiar with my phone making contact with the ground numerous times, I knew what sound to expect. But this was an unfamiliar sound.

I laughed.

I cried.

Okay, I really didn’t cry, but I had already been mentally preparing to put this phone to rest and purchase the new iPhone so I took a deep breath, made peace with my newly destroyed device, and learned a few lessons over the next few days.

#raisethebar AMRAP Bar: Giveaway!

September 8, 2014

Remember when I was sent some samples of AMRAP Bars to try out? I am not usually a proponent of using bars as a substitute for real food, but have found that these bars make an excellent replacement if a whole-food option isn’t available or if you just need an extra pick-me-up during the day. […]

“But I should be better..”

September 2, 2014

..than what? ..than who? If you are anything like me, you put a lot of time, effort, and emotion into your training program, whether it be Crossfit, running, a Beachbody program, or just training for aesthetics. You log you workouts. You put in the work. You make changes outside of the gym to complement the work that […]

August 18, 2014

Eat healthily, be healthy. Eat unhealthily, be unhealthy. It seems simple enough, but what all does it mean to be healthy? What happens when healthy behaviors trigger unhealthy actions? A while back, I briefly talked about struggling with switching from paleo to Eat to Perform and had all sorts of mixed emotions going into it. […]
