Hello, I must be going

What a Monday!

A great day for sure; beautiful sunny spring weather in Austin and my travel buddy for Kauai is confirmed and we are stoked!

Today I set up 2 RSS Feeds which I believe will automatically post to Twitter when updated.  I did this through (That’s a tip for you!) Consider this my first post to test and see if it works!  If you are not already, please follow me on Twitter @401kfromhome.

That’s it for today.  I am leaving you with yet another little song… as this was a quick hello and now I am going…

My intention is to make the rest of the week better as each day comes… what is your intention for the week?

GoDaddy Design Team

Well I have decided to take my own advice- imagine that!  I am hiring a design team to rebuild my primary website- yay me!  Now I can get back to entertaining and educating the masses.  Let’s begin with the entertainment, shall we?

Blogging with Windows Live Writer

Good day all!  Thanks for revisiting my blog. This morning I downloaded a new program that came in my weekly newsletter from the Digital Goddess, Kim Komando.  If you are not familiar with Kim I recommend that you check out her website and listen to her radio show when you can.  You are sure to pick up loads of great information for your computing or anything  in your digital world.  Be sure to sign up for her newsletters!

This is my test page to see how the Windows program works and displays in Word Press.   With Windows Live Writer, you can write your posts offline. Then, publish them when you’re ready. The software also makes it easy to insert photographs in your posts. Then, preview your entries before hitting the publish button!
Windows Live Writer works with many blogging services.  The cost is :FREE Download it here.

I just downloaded a ’plug-in’ which should tweet on Twitter whenever I post an addition to my blog with a tiny url using Windows Live Writer. Hmmmm…we’ll see!

Let’s add a photo now..Texas Bluebonnets in honor of the first day of Spring!

Last but certainly not least in my testing of Windows Live Writer and my new blogging experience, I am inserting a video of when ABC News put Isagenix to the test.  Later on I will talk more about Isagenix and if you would like to know more now, visit my website here.  Prices shown are retail.. or sign up and save.

Watch this ABC News Report!
I will tell you that my friend Kim (seen in this report) who lost 152 lbs 6 years ago has maintained her weight loss to this date with Isagenix.

That’s all for now; time to post this and see if it automatically Tweets!
I’ll check back this evening. Thanks for viewing and rating my blog. If you learned a little about Windows Live Writer then I’ve succeeded with my intention this morning!
By the way.. you can also follow me in Twitter @isabundance.

Let the blogging begin…!

Hello and thanks for visiting my first blog page!  I hope you will enjoy the read and grow with me as I get better at these postings.   Hold on for the ride!

I do enjoy a good laugh, sometimes and often at myself.   You will also notice that sarcasm is one more thing I have to offer.  I have fun with my life, always strive to find the humor in things; if not right away eventually I will have a laugh. Along with the humor always look for the lesson I should learn.

So in the fashion of inserting some humor along with quotes from some of my favorite movies and songs… let’s begin:

“I was born a poor black child”… (Steve Martin, from the movie ‘The Jerk’)

I grew up in a small town that most would have never heard of, but now you all know about Amityville, Long Island, NY.  Yes THAT Amityville!  (I will tell you more about all of that later)

I’ve been married and I’ve been unmarried.  I now prefer to have a dog for companionship.  ‘Nuff said.

Throughout High School I cut gym class-who woulda thunk that I would have become a gym rat in the 90s only to become an A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer.  I know, right?   My studies in  nutrition and health has paid off in what I am currently doing, as I love what I do and do what I love. Not a lot of people can say that and mean it!   Nope I’m not training folks any more… but I still get to help people with their health and fitness –  more on that later.

As I add to this blog daily you will learn more about me and my background so hang with me and let’s have some fun!  Visit here often-  or subscribe to the right of this page.

So now I am going to try something ‘kewl’ with WordPress and show you what I found to be a great fit for me.  I had the blessing of losing a  j.o.b. 6 years ago and decided I would never work for anyone else again, no commuting, no one telling me when to jump or how high, only to have the door hit me in the ‘fit and firm’ derriere on the way out.  I wanted to stay home with the dogs, play in my garden and my back yard… hey I’m disciplined, I can do this- but what the heck would I do?

My journey began in October of 2004, when I decided to transform my life
