Bithdays, awards and challenges

Hello, dear friends 🙂 I hope you´re enjoying your holidays. I´ve been busy working on my New Year´s Resolutions. Thank you so much for your help, inspiration, and motivation.

As I type, Chape´s Challenge Calendar is a beautiful, unexpected, and healthy reality.

Chape´s calendar

I will add new categories soon (to the calendar). I have a pile of exercise descriptions “ready” to publish. Thank you all for this new “editing mania”, I thought I was plenty. It seems there is always room for another one!

I want to make clear one thing: I don´t want to sell you anything. I don´t want your email addresses. There is no newsletter or a new big deal I want to deliver often, periodically or almost never. This is like a free buffet where you serve yourself adding to your calendar as you like. If you need online personal training, please visit services & pricing 🙂

Once upon a time, I promised a post about my great grandmother´s birthday. It was my day off this month and I really enjoyed it with my family. I forgot about the post thing and only my grandmother likes family pics.

There she is, Laura 100 years old, holding Celia 5 months. Her brother, Manuel (4) made me have the best dinner in years. Their mother, Veronica and her brother Daniel, complete the last minute pic. Thanks, Grandma! cumple 1

Since that memorable day, I´ve received several nominations:

MiddleMe: Lovely blog award

wwwpalfitness: Dragon´s Loyalty Award, Liebster Award,

Life of El Paso Woman: Versatile Blogger Award

Hope: 3 Day Quote Challenge

Element: Sunshine Blogger Award

Blogmaniac: Liebster Award

Thank you so much for the awards and understanding the notorious delay.

Wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!!! Love and light 🙂

Oh my Gosh David I love the picture. I would have never guessed that your Grandmother is 100. She looks young!! I would have guessed 78. Have a wonderful and Spactacular New Year! Don’t worry about the award. As you are swamped with them. there is no rush and you can of course choose to not participate if you wish.


Your grandma actually looks so cute!! Also, wow!! Those are some awards you got there! Congratulations!!


These awards are flying off the shelf! 😄 Great family pic!

You very well deserved the awards. Congratulations.
And your family looks absolutely fantastic. May you’ll stay happy and blessed.:):)


Did you say 100? What a blessed woman. Beautiful post


Congrats <3
Your grandmother is a beautiful woman <3


I agree with the other commenters. There’s no way I would have guessed your grandmother was a 100. I hope she and all the rest of your family too have a wonderfully happy New Year.

She must have been so beautiful in her young days. She still looks so. Many more years seem to be ahead. Thanks for sharing this inspiring post. Happy New Year!
