“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.

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.

(*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.

If You’re Voting in L.A.’s Election Next Month, Be Prepared, the Ballot is Long and Boring!

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. So far, so good -- no side effects to speak of, and fingers crossed it'll … Continue reading If You’re Voting in L.A.’s Election Next Month, Be Prepared, the Ballot is Long and Boring!

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!

Body Positivity means supporting ALL women’s bodies, thank you

First of all, let me warn you: this isn't going to be the usual light-hearted post about weight loss and breast cancer, my friends! So if you're here expecting that, sorry to disappoint you. However, like many of you, I'm really appalled by the breaking news out of the Supreme Court. And I won't go … Continue reading Body Positivity means supporting ALL women’s bodies, thank you

My new diet: eat whatever you want, any time you want!

So hey, everyone, don't know if you remember a few years ago when I was touting the "No S Diet," invented by Reinhardt Engels. He's an engineer so it MUST be good, right? The basic premise was (and still is, I'm pretty sure!) that you eat three meals a day with no snacks, sweets, or … Continue reading My new diet: eat whatever you want, any time you want!
