Taking a Break: Preventing Disgorge

Great visual, eh?

I thought I blogged about my special piece of workout equipment, though after searching, I find that I have not. Considering I just “introduced” you to the Onion, I may as well introduce you to something else HotBe acquainted me *clap* *clap* (sorry…starting daydreaming…)

As I was saying, last year, whilst visiting HotBe, we walked over to the beach for one of his infamous workouts. (Refresher: HotBe is my gorgeous personal trainer/pro volleyball player/Nutritionist pal that I want to jump has since moved to Venice, California) He pulls this strap contraption out of his duffel bag and hooks the carabiner to the volleyball net ring on the post. Viola! TRX: Suspension Training System.

Behold the TRX (and HotBe):

Phew, see WHY I daydream when speaking of HotBe? What was I talking about anyway? Oh yeah…TRX.

Needless to say, he had me kick my own arse on this baby and of course I had to buy one. In the year that I’ve had this, it’s become quite popular in the fitness world. I haven’t used it nearly as much as I should. I think I need HotBe to come and “help” me.

Well, I decided to get back into the TRX groove, which is why I am here…resting during the 20 minute workout, because, otherwise, my guts would be all over the floor….Yeah, I can’t even finish a full 20 minutes without the massive urge to hurl. It’s hardcore.

If you are looking to spice up your workout or push yourself harder, get one of these…you will NOT be disappointed…plus, it travels-you can use it virtually anywhere…hence the “Fitness Anywhere”. « Check it out for yourself!

Back to finish my workout…


The Onion

Having a bad day?

Need a laugh?

Have no fear, The Onion: America’s Finest News Source is here.

Up until a couple of years ago, I had no idea The Onion existed. It was HotBe that introduced me to this gem of a website. If you have not yet been enlightened, NOW is your chance! They also have a Channel on YouTube.

wow It’s that time again! You know…when I finally get around to changing my Urban Slang definition. It’s another one I can relate too, luckily, not all that often. You?


~ noun

A completely worthless conversation, wherein nothing is illuminated, explained or otherwise elaborated upon. Typically occurs at parties, bars or other events where meaningful conversation is nearly impossible.

Smith: “What a waste of time it is talking to that guy.”
Jones: “I know, every time I do, it’s like a complete nonversation.”

Don’t Make Me Call The Veggie Monster!

bubMy darling middle child; My sweet little boy; My Bubs that could LIVE on pizza, chicken tenders & french fries.


Part of being a parent of multiple children, is the witnessing of varied personalities between them. However, more interesting to me, are their food preferences. For instance, in my family: Punks (age 7) LOVES seafood, mushrooms, olives and sweets of any kind. She WILL NOT touch tomatoes, avocados or anything that has been subjected to an onion. Bubs (age 5) could as I’ve already written, live off of pizza, chicken nuggets and fries. He will eat pretty much any starch, however NO vegetables (except corn) and very little fruit. Oh wait, he does like Caesar salad, but NO seafood and minimal sweets. And he’s a spice prince: Hot sauce, crushed red pepper & Continue reading

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

baseballFinally. My oldest two munkees have started organized sports and first up is baseball. I had tried several times over the past couple of years to get them involved in something, with no committed interest. Well, No more! Punks and Bubs are official members of a baseball team! Woo Hoo…Go Munkees!

I requested they be placed on the same team (making it easier all around for practices and games and my request was granted.) Their first game was last night and they made this momma proud…not to mention, they are absolutely LOVING it! It is Dr. D’s weekend, so I met him up there. We went out for pizza and then ice cream afterward….civilly (perhaps there is hope for amicable co-parenting.)

The munkees love it when we can all get together and “get along”. That’s ALL I want….to be a united front FOR the wee people. It’s difficult though when Continue reading
