Ixtapa, Mexico DAY 1


The running around, the stress of contracts, last minute showing of houses….my ass’t working till all hours….and then…a BIG LONG SIGH!!!  We board the plane, we sit back and all that has become a distant memory!!! Thank God!!!!

  • Ode to Ixtapa

We arrived on a Saturday, with the temps making us sweat

We come through customs with our luggage, looking for something cold and wet

The guy is yelling “taxi..senorita, taxi’s to take you to your hotelo”

I said “si senor, but first I need a Negra Modelo”!!!!

We have arrived…we have shopped.. and tomorrow (after golf) we are off to find some “local” flavor and write and video their recipes (I hope). Let’s see how I do.  Stay tuned, my friends!





Health history done, my “goals to attain”, complete
The first thing the “Nutritional Nazi” observed..I never find time to eat!!!

The athletic & healthy life that I practiced for so long
Had been replaced by a new career, and now everything I was doing was wrong!

The “N.N” (nutritional nazi) with her constant water bottle in hand
Keeps barking at me to “DRINK”!…”HYDRATE”, her favorite commands!

Her other mantra, “eat sprouts and grains and your vegies too”..
Fresh fruits…flax seed…all to make you “do-do’!!!!

That’s all fine and good and drinking water is what I will hone..
But something that is TOTALLY new for me…now, I am constantly looking for a “throne”!!!!!

So as Day 2 ends and my newly excerised & hydrated body cheers…
The one “constant” that I have yet to let go…the opening of a nice, cold Negra Modelo Beer!!!!!!!!!


And so, my blog followers, the real reason we are down here in Naples, Fla….we are here for “Nutritional Boot Camp”!!!!!

Yes, I am a “Wanna-B-Chef”…but, I am the worst with my eating habits!!!  Problem is, I don’t….eat, that is!!!  So one of my best friends from high school is getting a certification in holistic nutrition…(yeah, right up my alley….NOT!) and I am one of her first “projects”!!!! 

Last night I answered her questionaire regarding my health, eating habits, excerise program, what foods I crave, when my last period was……oops…outgrew that a while ago…how much water I drink….(to me I drink very little…it is for the golf courses), alcohol consumption, stress level…(does she realize I am a frickin realtor??!!) and family history!!! It was a chore to be “honest”…but this is ALL good!!!  It is going to make me healthier and probably better looking!!!!!  hahahaha

So, stay tuned and you are going to go through this with me…and maybe….just maybe…someone will learn something!!!

Opps, they are calling…we are about to go and do the walk around the perimeter of this “oh so poor area called Mediterra”….3 1/2 miles!!!  Lord save me!!!

This is ALL new to me…this thing called blogging!!! 

 I am a “closet chef“!!!  And for those of you who know me, this is not the “first” closet that I have come out of!! I also have ADD!!  And for those of you who don’t know or who have not had the priviledge of being around someone with ADD…… “WE WEAR YOU OUT”!!!! 

So, inorder to have some “calm & tranquility” in my workaholic life (and to keep things calm at home).. I cook!!  

Another thing I like to do is make videos.  I am involved with a wonderful marketing tool called “Talk Fusion” ( which is video e-mail and so I am going to incorporate both my love of cooking & entertaining AND videos and see what happens!!!  I am going to write about my receipes, (taken from all sorts of sources….is that called plagerism?!!) make them as easy as possible &  hope that if you read this blog that you will use these receipes and have fun doing it!!

So, with no further adoooooooo……let’s get started!!!
