Emotional Indeed

First of all, this picture is NOT of me. I am a bit wider in both the waist and hip area. Still pretty flat in the abs but always can use some work. I guess that is one reason why I found myself at Mamasita Studios in Takoma DC. I needed something different besides Salsa and working out at home.…

Here’s A Frightening Idea

So, I have this idea. My idea is to put myself in frightening and/or uncomfortable situations. I need to be scared out of my wits. I need to know how to handle any situation while I am scared out of my wits. I do not believe this is an original idea. I believe that I read it in a book…

If I Seem Different…..

My Facebook timeline is normal for the most part. Twitter feed is still cluttered with various questions and such. I’m still making it to my commitments and enjoying myself while I’m there. All seems to be pretty cool. You wouldn’t know by looking at me that I had a not so great week. Of course, I will not get into…

What’s At The End Of My Rainbow

Hmmm. Good question. This is my Plinky question of the day. It got the writing juices flowing within me this morning so I just figured I’d type out what my mind is thinking at the moment. So, what IS at the end of my rainbow? I’d say peace of mind, I guess. What does that mean? Well, you see, there…

Just All Sorts Of Crazy

I‘ve been absent for a bit. This is due to a number of things. My schedule has filled up. Grateful for this. I’ve had mixed feelings about random things. All of it I did not want to share with the masses. It’s not that it’s too personal. I’m still trying to sort it all out. Things kind of came to…

When Did I Become Such A Busy Bee?!

Here I go again…letting too much time pass between posts. Yet again, there is TONS of stuff that I’ve done since my last post. Sigh. Let’s see what I can remember. Y’all know I’m getting old ova here! Lol. My last post was the day before my trip to upstate NY. I was meeting my Grandmother so we can make…

So…In A Nutshell…

Time has passed once again between postings. It’s not that I didn’t have anything to write about. On the contrary. I had TOO MUCH to write about. My week has been pretty busy. Tons of things went on. Most of it threw me for a loop or two. I was completely out of my element with some of these events.…

Tomorrow Is The Day

I am SO excited! Tomorrow is the day that I go for my Zumba training! It is also the mark of my five year anniversary as being smoke free. Great accomplishment! I don’t see any other way to celebrate than to get a fitness certification to supplement my income. Well, maybe a nice dinner as well. We’ll see. I’m wrapping…

Challenge Bust & A Pre-Anniversary Preview

Well…as you all can see from my lack of posting last week, I did not complete my Bikram Yoga challenge. Monday and Tuesday are the only days that I was able to attend. Wednesday I had a case of the BGs (TMI…I know) and I’ve been sick with a head cold ever since then. I’m blown. At least I’m keeping…

Challenge: Day 2 Of Bikram & Such

I DID NOT want to get out of bed this morning. My extended nap yesterday evening contributed to that. I was so wore out from my first day of Bikram that I ended up passing out at around ten till 5p. I woke up at 9p. Had trouble getting back to sleep. Huge bummer for my morning. I finally crawled…

Tears On My Pillow

I gave up something yesterday. Something that I love very much. I gave it up in the name of recovery. In the name of rest. I gave up my dancing. This saddened me more than I realized it did. As soon as I sat down to collect myself when I got home last night I started to cry. I couldn’t…

Kind Of Like Pulling Teeth

I had a conversation with an old friend Friday night. I hadn’t spoken to this gentleman in quite a while. The time was there so we caught up briefly before we both moved on to our next activity – his = drinking and mine = sleep. He compared me to a female that he knows out in his neck of…

Just All Types Of Messed Up

I know I’ve plastered it all over my personal Facebook timeline, but this may be the first time I’ve mentioned it here. I injured my right foot during a Salsa performance back in March. Speaking to a podiatrist friend of mine, I had a possible stress fracture. X-rays were recommended which he could not provide. Ok. I made an appointment…

Is It DC Wine Week Yet?

Oooo, how excited I was when I saw something concerning DC Wine Week come through my Twitter feed. I immediately went to investigate. It looks like they are looking for partnerships. Any restaurant, wine bar, winery, wine merchant, or anyone that wants to be a part of DC Wine Week 2012 should apply. They are still ‘fermenting’ (so cute) so…

Those Lying Bastards

I am referring to the doctors that I had the non-pleasure of seeing last Tuesday. They will continue to be referenced as ‘Those Lying Bastards.” Why? Because they LIED TO ME!!! Can you tell me why any reputable doctor will tell you that it’s Ok to go about your daily business after having a procedure done such as what I…

Because We Know What’s REALLY Important

It had been a long while since I enjoyed a cup of coffee at home. I still stopped at a Starbucks once a week or so but I missed just chilling at home wrapped up in my whoobie with it. I had the coffee. What I was missing was the creamer. Yes, my Lovelies…I do not take my coffee without…

Thoughts Of Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda

We’ve all played this game before. The Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda but Didn’t game. Where we think of situations past and wonder. We second guess ourselves which is what the phrase means. I played this game for quite some time now. Today I played it a bit differently. I thought of a few of my previous Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda situations and…

Ah, wedding season. The flowers, the cake, the hair, the makeup, and of course the fashions for the guests. Might as well be a red carpet event with some of the pieces that are worn. Well, my younger brother is getting married in July. I’ve spent the past couple of months stressing over the dress that I’m going to wear…
