Let the blogging begin…!

March 16, 2010 at 12:28 am 9 comments


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

    Oh my goodness – I often will say, “I was born a poor black child” and no one gets it. I’m feeling a kindred spirit here!

    Way to press forward!
