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!

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?

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!”

Week Three — Almost Free!

That's right, y'all -- just three more days (including today) and I'm DONE with my four weeks of radiation treatments!

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!

Just a flesh wound!

Yeah, it's a teensy little gain: 198.0 But it could have been worse! Last week, in case you didn't notice, I took the week off and did one of my legendary "road trips" to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona, where it only got up to about 122 degrees Fahrenheit at, um, 9:00 AM. So not too bad, … Continue reading Just a flesh wound!

Another nice Chatsworth walk!

Yesterday's walk was on the Not really a "hike," per se. To me, a hike involves hills, gullies, backpacks, and of course, mud galore.  No, yesterday was definitely a gentle, peaceful walk! And it's someplace I've been before -- in fact, I blogged about it this past January: Brown's Creek Bike Path in Chatsworth, California! … Continue reading Another nice Chatsworth walk!
