an hour a day

…or sometimes 40-45 minutes. For 30 days straight, no days off. That’s what it took to get these results. In this post, I’d like to share with you how in greater detail. Note: No exercise/nutrition plan is a one-size-fits-all solution and I am not a health professional, just an average Joe sharing my tips on […]

Can’t sleep.

Missing the sunrise and peeking over the balcony as early workers stroll by, conversing in native tongues over the rooster’s crow. Stretching out my legs and feeling the heat on my skin before daylight has fully broken. Stirring the perfect cappuccino — — under the latticed patio roof, flanked by lush vegetation and pretty florals. […]

It’s now Day 3 of my foray into daily blogging. I haven’t run out of steam yet, but I could very easily fall back into TV-mode and ignore this — OMG, HOUSE OF CARDS IS BACK ON NETFLIX — fighting to keep focus… Luckily I’m writing about food and, mainly, the impressive breakfast I had […]

an ode to hotels

We love hotels!  It’s hard to imagine who doesn’t, really.  You arrive to a freshly made bed and (assumed) spotless tub. When you leave for the day and come back, everything’s cleaned up for you.  The pillows and covers are like heavenly soft marshmallows, and when you hang a sign on the door, no one bothers […]

clean

So for the past three days and over the weekend I’ve gone meat (including chicken and seafood) and dairy-free.  I went through three parties/functions with friends and family offering the most delicious looking fried chicken and squid, brownies, birthday cake, sushi, etc. but I did not crack!  I ate what was available for me to […]

To work, to work I go!

This sexy contraption is called a Shoulders Back support brace which I purchased recently to sit for hours at my steno machine, as I’ve been told that I’m now two inches shorter than I’ve always known myself to be, and I believe I’m shrinking as my posture slumps forward due to mommy neck and trying […]

For mommy.

In the beginning it’s just me Living in the palm of your hand, clinging to each finger joint, trusting every motion Knowing nothing and nobody else Decisions over choices, judgments over negotiations You rule the world As I awaken to much more You begin to shrink I learn, expect, love hard, disappoint Hate, laugh, isolate, […]

I love the lights.

They remind me of life as a teenager. When ’twas the holiday season I’d move my pillow, blanket, and Elise (beloved stuffed lamb) into the living room as my temporary headquarters. Dino, my lovable feline rascal, would run from the side to the front window, paws up against and nose poking out of the blinds, […]
