Throwback Blog Post: Well…Hello!

Something New: Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday can mean many different things to so many different people. Old photos. Old clothing. Old toys and other items. All of them with their own stories and sentimental memories. I have these such items and stories like many others do. I want to share some of these with all of you. I’ve decided to dive back into the…

GoogleBot Has Issue With My Calendar

My site has been suspended three times because of GoogleBot. Instead of searching and indexing like it’s supposed to do, it got hung up in my calendar. It got hung up so long that it overloaded the server at my hosting company. Of course, they were dears and let me know all of this by suspending my site. Emails and…

I Love My Blog

I really do. I love the fact that I have a place to lay out my thoughts. I love the fact that I can share random moments with you, my readers, even if sometimes I am a bit reluctant to do so. It may seem as though I do not love this place at times. Those times are when I…

Runaway Schedule

It seems as though I am doing WAY too much. I am always exhausted beyond sanity so one would think that would be it. Unfortunately, that is FAR from reality. I took note of everything that I AM doing. It’s not much. Not really. My problem? Proper preparation. My schedule consists of me going to work during the weekdays, dance…

Well I Guess That Cancels That

I did good! I came home, stripped down to my bra and panties, and commenced to do a brutal 15 minute full body workout session consisting of various jumping jacks, Russian twists, high knees, and the like. Then what do I do? I ruin it by stuffing my face with Lays potato chips and french onion dip! What in the…

Uniquely 2013

At least, that is according to Joe whom I follow on many social media channels. It’s the first time since 1987 since a year has had four unique digits. It will be like this for at least another six years. So, that’s seven whole years total of uniqueness. I like the thought of that very much. My plans for bringing in this…

What Had Happened Was . . .

So, yet again, I’ve been away. I just haven’t had a free moment to type out a post on my laptop. Even now I’m on my phone. Many reasons why this is. I had planned on getting a post out the Friday after my last post. You know, give you something at least three times a week. Wasn’t possible. I…

Review: “The Hat” For My Bodyrock Needs

I stumbled across an awesome program a few months ago. This find stemmed from a need for me to randomly pick my daily Bodyrock workouts. I already had a simple system in place by shuffling index cards and picking one from the deck. I was on the lookout for an electronic version of this system. Enter stage left: The Hat…

A Bucket Full Of Day Ones

Yesterday marked my first day of my 21 Day Challenge I am putting myself through. The idea of this challenge is compliments of Get Heidi Fit. Basically I need to commit myself to at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day for 21 days straight. No rest days. Shouldn’t be too bad, right? I’ve been down this road before.…

Change Is Good . . . Right?

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. Yes, for you smart asses it has been painful at times. As you may know in a previous post of mine I made a decision on how I was going to proceed with my online presence as it pertained to Twitter. That got me thinking a bit further. Way further. My…

FINALLY! A Decision Has Been Made!

For many, many months I have been going back and forth about what I was going to do with my web presence. You see, I have two main identities that I use on Twitter – @iamkionda & @theshuttergypsy. The @iamkionda is my carefree, hold nothing back, personal handle. The @theshuttergypsy is SUPPOSED to be my business brand. I have been…

Another “I’ve Been Away” Post

It looks again as if some time has passed between posts. If you have been following me for a while this really isn’t new. I can go months before posting. In this case, my absence wasn’t intentional. Due to an incompetent idiot with my current cell carrier, I’ve been without internet access for the past month. I have been on…

Is Competition Crippling You?

There is nothing like some good old competition to motivate one towards success. There are many stories stating competition as a reason for reaching one’s goal, sometimes before schedule. Questions that come to mind are how much is too much and is it crippling instead of helping? These questions came to mind from a long thought process I experienced spanning…

Inspiration In An Unlikely Place

Comment spam. Those of us with blogs get in on a daily basis. Some not so much. Others get it by the hundreds. Sifting through all of it can be a pain. At least it is for me. You may ask, “Why sift through it at all?” I do it just in case a real comment is hidden among the…

A Place Of Peace

I had some business to attend to down on Minnesota Avenue in NE DC yesterday. Business that had me stressing a bit earlier that day. After my business was done, instead of going home I jumped a random bus that took me downtown. From there I walked. I like walking. It’s great exercise. It also helps clear my mind. I…

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…
