Let’s try this again, shall we?

Okay, so now that I'm COVID-free, I'm gonna try the Phoenix vacation again next week. Which means I won't be posting one of the wonderful blog posts you've all come to know and love! So this week, instead of talking about COVID and complaining about the patriarchy, how's about I talk about how I'm doing … Continue reading Let’s try this again, shall we?

Good news and good day!

Hey everyone! Well, right after I posted last week about Mr. 50by60 testing positive, guess what happened to yours truly? Yup, we both had it! So we both had to stay home, avoiding human contact, including each other, as much as is possible in a house with one bathroom (although we DO have a back … Continue reading Good news and good day!

The Best-Laid Plans of Mice, Men, and Moi!

Uh, yeah, about that vakay I was planning to take this week ... Poor Mr. 50by60 came home from work Friday with an uncomfortable feeling, which got worse over the next day -- fever, cough, the works. And yours truly was ALL SET for that road trip to Phoenix, with the rental car that (theoretically!) … Continue reading The Best-Laid Plans of Mice, Men, and Moi!

Yep, time once again for another VAKAY!

Well, a big hello to all my friends out in Blog Reading Land! Let's see, I spy with my little eye: Stevie, Laura, Garold, Penny, Rachel, Irene, Bill, Becky, Bernie -- and of course, MARGARET, my #1 fan (on Facebook anyway!). Great to have you all here, and I'm sure you'll be just devastated to … Continue reading Yep, time once again for another VAKAY!

Weight Watchers, sugar snap peas, and a banana bonanza!

Hey, everyone! Well, it's one week since I started test-driving the new Weight Watchers "Personal Points" thingamabob. And I have to say, so far so good! I'm diligently tracking 99.9% of my foods, as instructed, in their friendly little app, which hasn't crashed my phone (yet), so I'm good. Of course, some mega-dieters will be … Continue reading Weight Watchers, sugar snap peas, and a banana bonanza!

The definition of insanity: rejoining Weight Watchers??

Well, good morning, everyone! Let's just hop right to it, shall we? Yes, you read that post title right -- I have rejoined Weight Watchers for what I think is the third time in my life! And yes, I do know the definition of insanity (which my poor, caffeine-deprived fingers keep wanting to type as … Continue reading The definition of insanity: rejoining Weight Watchers??

“Fatphobia” can literally kill!

Good morning, everyone! Hey, remember last week, when I told you I was getting ready for my tele-visit with the colonoscopy doc? Well, I had it. And I really, really wish I wasn't so technologically challenged, because if I'd livestreamed it, or at least recorded it somehow other than in my admittedly imperfect memory, you'd … Continue reading “Fatphobia” can literally kill!

Colonoscopy time again! (plus an honest review of Crunch Fitness Simi Valley)

Hey, everyone! Well, as long-time readers may recall, last fall (hey, that rhymes!) I was supposed to get the always dreaded colonoscopy. However, due to unforeseen circumstances (the cancer diagnosis), it had to be postponed. Butt* now that everything's hunky-dory up top, it's time to race to the bottom! (*heh heh) However once again, due … Continue reading Colonoscopy time again! (plus an honest review of Crunch Fitness Simi Valley)

Calisthenics at home or the gym – a great solution!

Hey, everyone! I'm heading out to investigate yet ANOTHER in my long line of gyms that I might or might not join. This time it's a chain called Crunch Fitness. The main attraction of the particular location I'm checking out is that they have a pool, and it's supposed to be around 100 degrees today, … Continue reading Calisthenics at home or the gym – a great solution!

Good morning, world! Time for a cancer update!

Hey, guess what? It's been five months plus one day since my lumpectomy! So I thought I'd just let you know how I'm doing, boob-wise. My scar is still very visible but seems to be healing nicely. Actually, I have two of them, one right on the booby itself and one under the arm from … Continue reading Good morning, world! Time for a cancer update!
