Spring Stretching Out Ahead . . .

Wednesday, April 06, 2011      11 comments

The anticipation at this time of the year makes life zesty! All better times to come!! There are a few yellow and purple crocuses in bloom in my garden -- news ones, which I planted last fall, close to the back door where I'll see them every t... Read more

Sisters Shopping Day

Saturday, April 02, 2011      16 comments

What a gorgeous day: sunny, +8C, red winged blackbirds and robins singing me along the road for shopping day with my sister!!. Over the course of the day, ingested: several skim milk lattes; tomato soup; spanakopita; an apple. AND choco... Read more

What Goes Up Must Come Down . . . .

Friday, April 01, 2011      11 comments

OK, probably a blip. Maybe there will be a full 24 hours at this "new weight" -- and maybe tomorrow I'll have to put the weight tracker back up again. And I will. If necessary. Really. And maybe it will be Sunday morning which... Read more

There it was, floating free above the tree branches in the rosy sky. (View from the weights room, 6:30 a.m. this morning).... Read more

Moving My Weight Tracker -- UP!!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011      9 comments

Oh, my, how I hate to do this. From my low of 145 to 146 a few days ago: and today up another half pound to 146.5. But: I promised myself to weigh myself every day (that's what it takes for me: not everybody); and that I would faithful... Read more

Chocolate Raspberry Souffle Omelette

Sunday, March 27, 2011      10 comments

For the last several weeks I've been deliberately upping my protein intake (thanks SWEETIKINS, for the tip) by making Greek style omelettes most mornings for breakfast: a mixture of Naturegg Omega 3 and Simply Egg Whites with low fat feta chees... Read more

Body Proud

Saturday, March 26, 2011      12 comments

Sing it out loud You should be proud! And *blushes* yes, I am. OK, my body is by no means perfect. It's almost 60, after all. And a decade ago, was some 85 pounds heavier. It's borne two babies. Endured serious illness, and ... Read more

Just an Ordinary Day . . .

Thursday, March 24, 2011      7 comments

. . . and my goodness, how I cherish such days after a time of "crisis"! My workout felt good: I'm using the 8 km podrunner downloads on the elliptical trainer since running is not working for my knees, and the music keeps me moving efficie... Read more

There it was, chirruping loudly in the birch out front of my office when I pulled into the parking lot yesterday. Clearly a web-savvy robin. And (ahem) perhaps a tiny bit plump: so maybe a member of SparkPeople? I'm thinking he ... Read more

Listening for Robins

Monday, March 21, 2011      11 comments

I hear them. I just haven't seen one yet. It's a cold morning, with semi-solid rain pouring down from a grey sky: and I've got my light-box on! The north wind shall blow And we shall have snow And what will the robin do then, poor... Read more

Joyous Exuberance

Sunday, March 20, 2011      7 comments

That's pretty much been my mood for the past couple of days, and I'm enjoying it. "Many a green isle needs must be In the deep wide sea of Misery, Or the mariner, worn and wan, Never thus could voyage on . . . " That's Percy By... Read more

Waiting to Exhale: OK Now! Whew!!

Friday, March 18, 2011      14 comments

Suffice it to say, these past few weeks I've been waiting for medical tests. Lump. And: got the results today. No worries. I'd told myself it "would be nothing" but clearly didn't entirely convince myself. Because now I kno... Read more

No Motivation to Run? Blame Evolution!!

Thursday, March 17, 2011      6 comments

I pretty much just take it for granted: I never want to work out. Any motivation which I experience is always "after acquired": after I've done it. Never before. And now there's scientific evidence which explains this phenomenon: see this... Read more

Spring Shopping in my Closet

Wednesday, March 16, 2011      9 comments

It's too soon, temperature-wise, to wear spring clothes - but I've certainly wanted to rotate out some of the winteriest tweed and flannel things because they don't fit my mood of pending-spring euphoria! There are certain colours, as well, th... Read more
