Heat waves and your diet/exercise plan

Well, howdy everyone, and yep, it's another super hot week out here in Southern California! So how does all this extreme weather affect our diet and/or exercise plans, if at all? Well, I don't know about you, but when it's so hot outside that I can feel the heat radiating inwards through the walls, I … Continue reading Heat waves and your diet/exercise plan

It’s so hot even this post is melting!

Well, hey, loyal readers! You may have noticed this post is a little late. That's because it's currently [checks pyrometer] 114 degrees Fahrenheit here in the beautiful San Fernando Valley! So I decided to do all my vigorous stuff (exercise, shopping, etc.) in the [relative] cool of the morning (I say "relative" because it was … Continue reading It’s so hot even this post is melting!

Back from vakay – and a Weight Watchers decision!

Hey everyone! Just got home from vakay - literally, less than an hour ago! I've already cleaned out my gorgeous rental car and moved all my crap back into my less-than-gorgeous-but-still-serviceable beater car. Tomorrow morning I'll return Gorgeous and start the process of returning to "normal," whatever that may be. And as part of that … Continue reading Back from vakay – and a Weight Watchers decision!

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?

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!

Balancing “Body Positivity” with “Ouch, my bones!”

Well, howdy, friends, relatives, and well-wishers! As promised last week, I've got some thoughts on what to do now that my breast cancer seems to be cured. To whit, my weight! Long-time readers may recall that last November, when I transitioned the blog from "weight loss" to "all cancer, all the time" like Debbie Downer … Continue reading Balancing “Body Positivity” with “Ouch, my bones!”

Still waiting for a surgical date, so here’s another blog to read instead!

Hey everyone! Yes, I'm still tapping my toes, waiting like a barely patient "Karen" for my surgical date. https://c.tenor.com/_YhNCtLj-O0AAAAC/grandma-84years.gif Okay, it's not QUITE that bad! The authorizations are trickling in via the USPS, so I know it'll happen eventually (though perhaps not before Christmas as I'd originally hoped). So I'm trying to stay busy, buying … Continue reading Still waiting for a surgical date, so here’s another blog to read instead!
