DOUBLE -LY DRIVEN

Hello Peeps.  Probably the longest hiatas in the history of blogging.  What can I say besides the fact that I just got distracted. It doesn’t matter.  I’m back and I’ll try to write as much as possible to keep you up to date.  After all, we deserve it.  You deserve to hear it and I…

Revamp it: A retrospect on the challenge of constant exercise

Hello Friends. What to discuss.  My absence is a given.  In life, we need a break sometimes…from writing, from fitness classes, from friends.  What I found out is this: You must return from your break at some point.  Face the reality of why you are breaking, and what it is you truly need. The problem…

Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows

Some days with this cooler weather, you start thinking about hot chocolate with marshmallows.  My favorite is Abuelita’s Mexican hot chocolate. Give yourself a break, and add some marshmallows or a cinnamon stick. Get into your yummy flannel pajamas, and curl up into your favorite chair. I like to get into my writing and research mode,…

Jennifer Anniston Arms

In my ongoing quest to be fit, I noticed my arms have gotten bigger.  I don’t want big arms.  I want long, lean, arms with some muscle but no veins please.   I love Jennifer’s arms above. Recently, I’ve been researching Crossfit since a fitness instructor was trying to entice me into her Crossfit class.  I…

Friends, groups, and like-minded people…

Wait a Retro Minute… The Tribulations of Non-Progressive Thought

There’s a lot of classic things, I like.  I’m currently obsessed with New Balance 574s. Yes, I wear them everywhere, to the gym, at the beach, kickin’ back on a sweet summer day in a jean mini skirt,  cute jean shorts, or must bummin with my comfy jeans. It’s so damn cooooool.  I can’t wait…

The Excuse Factory: Who do we trust?

This is a tasteful picture of Caitlin Rice.  She’s one of my biggest idols.  Look at her she looks damn good and she worked hard to get it.  To me, she looks absolutely fantastic. She’s not to skinny, which I like. A couple of comments on Pinterest was that this photo was photo-shopped and that…

Believe

LOL, now that’s not real! There’s so much doubt out there.  And among all the haters, the negaters, the non-believers who overwhelm the world, there is one believer. Believe the impossible, believe the achievers, worship the goal-attainers.  Defy gravity. What does that mean? It means that out there in this cynical world is an optimist. …
