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!

Of course, some mega-dieters will be … Continue reading Weight Watchers, sugar snap peas, and a banana bonanza!

“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.

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.

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!

Well, hey, everyone! How's life in your neck of the woods? I'm doing well -- as of today I've been on the Arimidex for, let's see [counts on fingers, carry the one] a little over a month and a half.

Rise and shine, campers!

Okay, so it's not exactly cold out here in sunny Southern California -- a bit nippy at night, but that's what cats are for, right? Anyway, this is another shortie post, 'cause I've got a fasting blood test this morning, and I made it super early so I don't have to fast one SECOND longer … Continue reading Rise and shine, campers!
