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!
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!
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!”
That's right, y'all -- just three more days (including today) and I'm DONE with my four weeks of radiation treatments! Although that means I'll have to find some other motivation to get out of bed in the morning, especially since we just started Daylight Savings Time out here. Still, I'm gonna try to get out … Continue reading Week Three — Almost Free!
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!
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!
Good morning, peeps! Great to see you! How are you holding up? Feel free to rant in the comments! First things first: the weigh-in! 197.4 Down a pound, which is nothing to sneeze at! And speaking of sneezing ... yours truly saw some lovely wildflowers on a hiking trail in an undisclosed location in the … Continue reading Wednesday Wildflower Walk Weigh-In!
First, let's get this out of the "weigh" (get it?): Oh, it's funny, all right! All humor at 50by60.com is guaranteed to make you laugh, or you get a full refund on your admission price! OK, okay*! Here ya go, my Offishul Way-In for the Weak: 195.4 There ya go, down a little from last … Continue reading Hiking for Fun and (sometimes) Weight Loss!
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!
Hey everyone, sorry for the one-day delay on the weigh! Had to sing at a liturgy yesterday morning -- usually the weekday liturgies are on Tuesday but for some reason this week was different. And since I'm the only cantor who doesn't have an actual job, It's always down to me! Oh well, afterwards I … Continue reading Better late than never! (Unusual Tuesday weigh-in)
