Just a Fat Chick Trying to Exercise

Okay. I am just going to say it. I try to live by what I preach. I do not want to be the person who judges other people. But I am also a fat chick on a diet and exercising regularly for the first time in a decade. Since the first of January, I have…

I Can’t Even

So, I realized something as I sat to write this. I said that my next blog was going to be about the current political situation in America. But I can't even. I can't. My feelings on this are still raw and right on edge. So before I can even analyze how I feel about it…

Ugh. Lifestyle Changes.

Alright, before we jump into more of the political things, let's have a good old fashioned rant on how much I hate dieting and exercising. However, there is absolutely no more procrastinating, no more falling off the wagon. I have to lose weight and get healthy and have not just a moment but a lifestyle…

Why Have I Been MIA?

So I have been AWOL on my blog. Not for the first time, but this time was different. This was not me being lazy or not motivated. I have been missing in action because I have been making money and working as a content writer.My wife was laid off, and I kicked the writing into…

Nineteen Years Later

Another Week Begins

So, its another week in 2020 and starting out as bizarrely as the rest of the year. When you wake up and read the news that people in another state are getting their mail-in ballots to vote safely amidst the global pandemic that has the current president's face on it telling them not to let…

A trip to the doctor, oh boy

So, today I got to go to my physical with the doctor. Yeah, that is fun in a COVID world. Chairs in the waiting room are roped off, everyone is wearing masks and face shields. Some of them even have on goggles as well.It is very much like getting to step onto the page or…

Another Day In The Life

So, I am diligently trying to ensure that I get at least a short blog a day up on my personal site. With that in mind, here it goes. I spent a good portion of my evening working on flyers for an organization I have recently joined, called #518MamasforBLM. Doing this work is similar to…
