Bits and Pieces.

I am back!

Yep. Time has flown, and here we are! November, 2022, already.

I have been reflecting on what I want for the future, and this “new norm world” we now live in. Almost just about post pandemic.

So much has happened, in the last almost three years for us all, to put things into perspective. In so many ways.

BP or “Before Pandemic” my goals could have been “do more, do better make more $$, get this, get that..” NOW my goals seem to be so much more simplistic.

I SIMPLY want to get through each day with aplomb, satisfaction with a sense of elegance, innate peace and happiness and a sense of balance running through my veins that makes me feel like I actually contributed to this world.

I want to get up real EARLY in the morning, so I do not miss a f-ing thing. Not the sunrise, not the early walkers, not the stray cats coming for food. I want to walk in the garden with my strong coffee, smelling all the flowers, looking at the sunrise sky, wondering if it will be humid today. I want to talk to God. I want to watch the birds at the bird feeder and smile, I want to be… the MOMENT. I never had this before!!

Did you?

I want to look through ALL my cookbooks, my coffee table design books, I want to get new recipes, I want to get some decor ideas, I want to try this and that, have friends over, meet for coffee, meet for wine, take food to someone who is sick, give back to the community…

I also want, selfishly to fix up my beautiful home, have more Summer BBQ’s, I want to entertain, I want people to feel they can just stop by, I want to create a beautiful shabby chic, cozy space for my peeps and family to ENJOY.

I want to travel to places I have never seen. I want to collect interesting things that REALLY mean something. I want to plan for the future but I also I want to give back.

I do not want to be pushed into some role someone wants me to be in. I want my own role. I want to command my own life, my own life rules, living with ethics and integrity of course.

I want to not care how I look when I go out in my fitness clothes, no makeup, so what? Don’t like it? Not bothered.

I want this segment of my life to ACTUALLY MEAN SOMETHING!!!!

I want to let go ghosts that haunt me, I want to let GO insecurities, “bad mind” people, overachieving goals….as I just want to enjoy each, day, to, the FULLEST.

What are your hopes and dreams for the future?

Welcome To My New Blog (again…)

Hello Friends!

It has been eons since I blogged…a few years have gone by and I have had so many questions as to where my Blog just disappeared to. For almost six years I had a Blog named “A Fabulous Life in Jamaica” and I so enjoyed the writing, sharing and meeting of new people along that wonderful “blogging” journey.



This was my icon that represented “A Fabulous Life in Jamaica” from 2011-2016 when I retired the Blog due to being overly busy and having a glitch with Google not renewing my domain.

Then it was time to renew a few years ago (the Google Domain) and for some reason, Google just would NOT allow this to happen!  I heard and read that so many Bloggers were also having the same problem. Long story short, I got fed-up and ended up saving my blog in HTML format to use again one day in the future – at that point in my life I had become very busy in a new demanding job and literally had no time to write or manage it anymore.  I retired that Blog and vowed to start again one day down the road.

Cut to today….where I have been missing it and wanting to write, share and hopefully inspire readers again.  This time,  hope to inspire through teaching about weight training, macros, healthy eating and just finding the “balance” which I am a huge advocate of.

I have been not only busy in the “career” field but also in the “fitness” field, which actually has become my passion in the last three years. Hence the reason for this new Blog – to write and share about my journey into fitness, and along the way the lovely scenes I am surrounded by daily (a dose of the past Blog coming in now and then…)

In the next Post I will share more details about my Fitness Journey and where that has led me, and what I have learnt along the way – and the continuing “journey” of this wonderful world of fitness. I will also be sharing healthy recipes, fave wine (no I am not that churlish not to have a glass now and then!) sharing tips on where to stay and what to do in Jamaica….but mostly, mostly this is about the “umbrella effect” of fitness and what it has done, and continues to do for me.

I want to share, inspire and spread the word about over-doing it with too much cardio + the benefits of flexible dieting and the importance of watching your daily macros.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with daily doses too!

I cannot wait to share more and more!


Love, Neenie xo
