I started dating these diary entry blogs because I wanted to keep track of what I was doing. Turns out it is a lot like my exercise routine: sporadic! Consistency has always been a struggle for me on this journey and I really need to prio... Read more

My last blog was Jan 31, 2019. How is that possible? I've been around. I have Spark as one of my tabs on my computer, yet, somehow words elude me for a year. Anyhow, I am here whether anyone else is listening or not. Mostly the words a... Read more

It seems like I wake up and it's time for bed. That's how my days have been going. Don't get me wrong, there's a LOT in between those hours. More than when I was younger and thought I didn't have time then. When we're younger, we work, t... Read more

It's amazing when you sit down to blog, all the ideas and subjects you have to write about: they just disappear when you get on the screen and actually start typing. LOL Things here on the island are coming to a new normal. Our youngest i... Read more

I have been at this nearly a decade. All the while avoiding the keto hype. I just couldn't wrap my mind around fat being good, so to speak. At the beginning of the year, to keep with my theme of "A year of Chalean", I signed up for her 13... Read more

That was a doozer of a back flare up, let me tell you! I was down for quite a bit. So much in fact that I had to stop "turbo jam" and try something less strenuous, "PiYo". Notice I didn't say less intense. Because it's not. I've been doing ... Read more

I'm an Instagram Junkie. I love it. It's the one place, like Spark, that I can discuss or show my little mundane life and everyone is okay with it because they're showing off theirs. Okay, so there's a lot of trollers who try to get you to th... Read more
