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!”
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!
Hey, everyone! First, the weight - it's up a tad: 206.2 but I'm actually okay with that, as it was MUCH higher earlier in the week. Now that the weather is finally cooling down a bit so's we're not actually melting every time we set foot out the front door, and it's actually possible to … Continue reading Pumpkin spice time again!?
Well, it's been a rather sad week in the 50by60 household, as one of our little cat pals, Pumpkin (full name: Pumpkin Spice) hasn't been seen since last Friday. Given the nature of how things work, we are hoping for the best but prepared for the worst. It is theoretically possible she is out on … Continue reading Pumpkin Spice, you were (and hopefully still are!) very nice; and no, Diet Coke is NOT addictive, at least for me!
Well, I'm a little down today-- No! Not that way! I'm actually happy today BECAUSE I'm a little down! Urgh-- I mean, my WEIGHT is down! 204.6 Get it? Anyway, it's taken me several years of blogging to figure this out, but last week, instead of posting my weight and then immediately heading out to … Continue reading That’s so c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶ sensible it just might work!
Hey everyone, welcome back! The weight's up a schoche: 204.8 and even though I'd prefer it was going the other direction, I'm okay with it. But why? Is it possible that the weight loss doesn't means as much to me anymore? Is it possible that I'm just as happy to maintain as to lose? I … Continue reading Bookworm snacks and Kathy Bates, not necessarily in that order
Well, good morning, all! Everyone ready to do their morning workout? Let's get started! Haha, I don't really do stuff like that, although I did recently RIDE a boat! It was fun, but for me, the most exciting part was getting out of the boat when we were done: (kinda looked like these, and note … Continue reading Swing those weights, do-si-d’oh!
Hi everyone, and welcome back! Well, to end your suspense from last week's post, I got the repairs done on the 50by60-mobile, and it set me back a couple of thou, so I've decided to keep the ol' beater going for another year. And yeah, that and the fabulous luxury vacation I just got back … Continue reading The vakay weight is gone, but the credit card bills linger on!
Hey everyone, I'm headed out for my first real vakay in about a year! Given that my weight was up enough that I couldn't just say "SAME" for yet another week: 204.8 -- I've decided to head for sunny Arizona, where I'll probably sweat most of it off within, I dunno, the first five minutes … Continue reading See ya in dos semanas!
Well, good morning, everyone! I had all sorts of great ideas for my blog post this week, which I'll now present in the style of one of my favorite Reddit subgroups, "Saved You A Click" : 1. Why you shouldn't listen to music while you're walking or jogging (makes you move faster than you normally … Continue reading Writing my blog in a cat-induced fog!
