Ch-ch-ch-changes! (to the diet AND the blog! wowsers!)

OK, don't freak out, man, but I'm making a couple of tweaks here! Nothing serious, just a couple of necessary repairs.   First, re: the blog -- I'm not gonna do the "Friday Five" thing anymore, or at least not regularly. It's just getting too hard to come up with five semi-related things. I mean, … Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-changes! (to the diet AND the blog! wowsers!)

Friday laziness: My Very First Reblog!

Following Penny Wilson's advice from a couple of weeks ago, I'm reblogging this post from Drew Robinson's "Trail To Peak." I really love all the photos -- looks like a fun hike. So ENJOY -- and I'll see you Monday for the weigh-in and an ORIGINAL post! Hiking Bane Ridge Trail in Chino Hills State … Continue reading Friday laziness: My Very First Reblog!

Friday Five: The superbloom is…it’s everywhere, man!

Happy Friday, everybody! So, have you come across any of the stories in the Otherwise Perpetually Depressing News Cycle (OPDNC) about Southern California's "Superbloom" -- the explosion of wildflowers (mostly the delicate orange poppy) following all the torrential rains of the past few months? Well, strangely enough for the Lamestream Media, it's actually true! But … Continue reading Friday Five: The superbloom is…it’s everywhere, man!

Friday Five: The Groaning!

Yeah, it's me with yet another blog full of random complaints about why I can't seem to get past Plateau Point, and five ideas about why that might be happening. Here we go: five reasons I can't lose weight! Sugar -- OK, I don't buy into the idea that sugar is the devil, responsible for … Continue reading Friday Five: The Groaning!

Lazy Friday Five: Recent Hike Photos

Good morning, everyone (yawn)! Don't know about you, but I'm savoring every second of the last remaining, and rapidly waning, days containing that beautiful extra hour we got last fall, before it's yanked from our clutching arms! So as you can imagine, I'm not too keen on spending too much of that precious, precious time … Continue reading Lazy Friday Five: Recent Hike Photos

Five exercises that sound like they’re … er … something else!!

Happy Friday, everybody! Are you ready for something a little … different today? Have you ever noticed that some exercises, which may be perfectly nice and normal and good for you, have names which are kinda, um, risqué? Or just plain gross? For example: Burpees - Actually, "burpees" are this full-body exercise where you get … Continue reading Five exercises that sound like they’re … er … something else!!

Oops, I did it again!

...forgot to write my usual "Friday Five" blog post, that is! Sorry about that! Oh well, you know what I was doing instead? I was getting my glasses adjusted -- AND exercising, at (almost) the same time! See, my glasses get out of kilter very easily, always tilting just a little too much to the … Continue reading Oops, I did it again!

Friday Five: Just a bunch of photos

Happy Friday, everyone! Yeah, I know, not so happy for a lot of people. Well, when I'm sad, something in my brain clicks over and I start doing (or at least, wanting to do) new and/or creative things. Or maybe just go for a walk. All of which I've been doing, over the past couple … Continue reading Friday Five: Just a bunch of photos

Friday Five: A little late and a little short!

Hmm, I keep calling these posts the "Friday Five," even though, from time to time, I can't come up with five things. Wonder why? Yeah, but as Homer Simpson once said, "Hope springs internal," so I'll keep giving it the ol' college try! Anyway, without actually getting into the numbers game, I did a lot … Continue reading Friday Five: A little late and a little short!

Friday Five: Now we’re cookin’ with gas (and Spam)!

Happy Friday, everyone, and BOY, have I got a busy day ahead of me! I'm doing a LOT of cooking for two big events this weekend. First, tomorrow (Saturday), Mr. 50by60's side of the family will be getting together to celebrate a bunch of birthdays. I should explain that Mr. 50by60 is one of SEVEN brothers! … Continue reading Friday Five: Now we’re cookin’ with gas (and Spam)!
