Some Things On My Mind

It has been a quiet, relaxing couple of months while we replenish our funds a bit after a heavy travel season through the end of 2017.  Not a lot to report from January/February and that is a good thing, we have a system of travel then save before travel again, it's keeping us debt free … Continue reading Some Things On My Mind

Turn Of The Year Mayhem

After returning from Hong Kong we immediately started preparing for my step-daughter to visit and join us in bringing in 2016.

Diana’s Fit Club Diary – Part 2 Entry 1

I know...it should be Entry 10 right? I'm not feeling like I deserve to call it entry 10.  I was going strong with the at home strength training workout challenge but then I got a tattoo and had to wait to get my sweat on, then when I felt I could get back to burning … Continue reading Diana’s Fit Club Diary – Part 2 Entry 1

Diana’s Fit Club Diary – Entry 9

Quick Update:  I waited as long as I could until the new ink was almost completely healed before getting back to the gym.  It takes 7-10 days usually for the main heal process to complete.  I was prepared to wait, then my body started yelling at me after a few days of being idle. Waking … Continue reading Diana’s Fit Club Diary – Entry 9
