Summary: @greatwarrior79 took part in @kalemandra's daily color challenge (FridaySkyblue) and introduced a blue octopus. Yaaay!🎉🎉

In addition to @greatwarrior79's trivia,
Did you know that...

The word "octopuses" is the standard English plural of octopus but "octopi" is also acceptable. It is supposed to be the plural of octopus when English speakers thought the word 'octopus' was Latin. Thus, the word was pluralized with an -i ending. Furthermore, 'octopus' came from ancient Greek with a plural word, "octopodes". (Confusing? I know, right!)

And did you also know that...

Octopuses taste everything their tentacles touch. (Gross!)

The daily color challenge by @kalemandra was born into the steemit platform last year. It's composed of the 7 chakras of the colors of the rainbow and every day is a color. If you haven't joined the color challenge yet, you are missing a great deal. So @greatwarrior79, thanks for sharing an awesome challenge!

Summary: @itsmechille shared @flysky's post about his daughter's injury because of a major car accident.

Miracles are scarce. They don't happen everyday because they are phenomenal. They're called miracles because they exceed the norm. I'm not being negative but miracles often hurt the hopeful, the desperate and the needy. Miracles prevent you from living normally. And waiting for a miracle is never easy because usually, they happen once or twice in a lifetime and sometimes, never.

I believe one should count their blessings, instead. David Byrne once sang, "Everyday is a miracle." I say, waking up everyday is a blessing. The little and huge blessings in your life will push you to thrive harder, live to the fullest to be contented and happy in living.

(Work hard, play hard, right?)

Hey @itsmechille, you should have resteemed your friend's post instead and posted the link in your content to avoid confusion in what you really wanted to say. I admire you for supporting your mentor! You are a very kind person. Keep it up!

Summary: @blessedsteemer posted an entry about steemit's poets in @jassennessaj's poetry contest.

Not all Filipino recognizes Francisco "Balagtas" Baltazar, anymore. It's really nice to see poets in the platform. I love you all. May you live forever! This is for you @blessedsteemer.

"Nagdidiwang ang aking puso't isipan,
Sa mga tulad mong palaban.
Sa panahong ngayo'y bibihira,
Mga makata't manunula.
Isa kang tunay na pambihira,
steemyang kahanga-hanga."

English translation:
"My heart and mind celebrates you, a warrior.
Nowadays, poets and lyricists are rare.
You are indeed awesome, an admirable steemian."


Post #4: #Ulog Going Back to the Gym Day # 1 : This Is it There is No Turning Back This Time

Summary: @harlot is taking the "Balik-Alindog" program. He's on his road to hotness.

Losing weight isn't really easy when you are surrounded by lots of delicious food here in the Philippines. I, myself, struggled. A friend told me to loose weight by constant exercise because he said that I shouldn't deprive myself from eating the food I love to eat. He is not wrong but he isn't right either because that technique isn't applicable for everyone.

Going to the gym is okay, too but you should know what you need in order to be fit. You actually just need to be fit. Getting fit doesn't necessarily mean you should loose weight. Sometimes, to get a hot, smokin' body, one should gain weight. The problems are some go to the gym and gain weight when they want to loose it and vice versa.

The key in getting fit is really a proper balanced diet and exercise. You don't need to do extensive training. Just do the exercises that will help you. One should know the problem in his body in order to find a solution. Having a nutritionist is really helpful in this case for one to know the food that he should intake to loose the fat and replace it with muscle. (There are cases where one needs the fat but he's loosing it.)

Good luck in getting fit @harlot! The gifs are really pleasant in the eyes rather than simple pictures. Great job. And congratulations for being featured, again!
