My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!

Hello and Happy Monday.  Wow, that was an extremely fast weekend.  Did it seem that way to you as well?

I had a fantastic weekend.  We really did not do too much, the hubs has a trip coming up and he needed just a little time to relax, so we got a lot of that in.

Ok, how many of you had been watching soccer?

grass sport game match

I do not know anything about this, well, okay, maybe just a little bit, but we did watch some of these games.  Yesterday, for the championship game, we had already made plans to meet OD for lunch at our favorite new Mexican restaurant,  Jimmy’s.  They apparently had opened early for the game because when we got there they were really busy.  They had the game on every TV so we got hooked on the game.  One day, I would like to learn more about the rules and scoring, and well, just more about the game in general.

But, as I said, we met OD for Jimmy’s Buffet Brunch, SO GOOD!  I am not sure, but I do think OD enjoyed this.  I was KIND OF able to control myself, and not eat too much.

I have tried a couple of the products from my fabfitfun box.  I have tried the IMG_3145 and the IMG_3148  I really like the body wash infused buffer, it feels very smooth and silky as you use it, and when you squirt some of the Shower gel on it and  use it, it leaves you feeling very clean with a soft rose scent.  I like these two items.

I have also tried the IMG_3140 stress relief ball.  I need practice on this, I am more used to using a roller, but the little I did use this on my feet, I liked the way they felt while I was using this, and after.  I just need to learn how to use this better.

I have looked at the IMG_3138 travel bag, this will work very well for my upcoming trip to Miami.  It appears to be the perfect size for my travel make up and lotions and all of the body care products I travel with.

I plan on trying the hand lotion and the base primer today yet, and I will let you know what I think.  Remember, if you want to learn more about this box, click on the link below;

I did get my Alitura sample.   They sent me two small samples of presence-travel_NEW  They have just released this Parfum, a smolderingly sexy & sensual fragrance for him and her – Alitura Presence.  They say they created a scent of luxury with massive arousing appeal while still using clean, natural and organic ingredient.  This has a very clean scent, and at first, seems VERY light, but after a few minutes on your skin, it gets just a little stronger.  I am going to test it for a few days, but so far, I really like this.  I will be ordering this on my next order.

I really am working on the podcast, but there are several things I need to get figured out, and unfortunately, I am not that technically knowledgeable.  I am trying to figure out how to add music at the beginning and end of the podcast, like an intro type song, and then again at the end.  Does anyone out there know how to do that, and if so, can you give me the short version how to do this?  I really want to get this podcast up and running, so any help that you can give me, I will greatly appreciate that.  Please feel free to DM me on IG if you want to talk in depth about this.

Did you all get good workouts in today?  I had, in my mind, kind of decided this was not something I was going to blog a lot on, but then, this really is one of my passions, so why not blog about it.  No, I am not a fitness expert, I am not a trainer, I just have many years of experience trying different things, and I think I may have learned a little along the way.  So, in sharing today’s work out, below is the work out I did today:

Mr G and I started the day with our 3 mile walk.  This was a walk, and kind of slow.  It took me a few minutes to get going to day.  Then, at the gym, I did the below:

Bench Press

Jumping Jacks

Leg Press

Run in place

Lat Pull Down

Leg and arm Circles

Kettle Bell Abs

Farmers Walk

Rope Tri

Tri Dips and Bench Push up

I did three sets, 12 reps, 10 reps and 8 reps and than did just a few minutes of stretching.

Feel free to share your work out with me.

I received two tank tops from Hippie Runner.  I will post a picture of the one I got for myself the next time I wear it, but I also got one for OD,

IMG_2227  How cute is that!  Isn’t that just the best tank top?  And perfect for her, she has three pit bulls that are the biggest babies you have ever seen.  I think I need her to send some pictures of the babies and one day, I need to do an entire post on my grand dogs and G.  What do you think?  How about those of you that have fur babies send me your favorite picture and your best story, send these to

We kidz, I need to get back at it.  I am going to ask all of you readers to send any questions you might have, next week, I want to devote one entire blog post to answer questions,  please e-mail your questions to me at

So, until tomorrow, send me your comments and criticism

remember to hydrate, let’s all take a drink now, be active, get up and move, let’s all do 10 squats now, be happy, keep a smile on your face, and see you all tomorrow.
