Friday, April 02, 2010      15 comments

There was an interesting article in the April 1 Toronto Globe and Mail which I'm pretty sure wasn't an April Fools joke: "Most Canadian dieters can't keep pounds off, poll finds". If you want the link, here it is: http://www.theglobean... Read more

ONE YEAR ALL CLEAR!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      17 comments

It's official: one year post dx, all tests normal and I'm healthy! Big sigh of relief. (Didn't entirely realize how much worry I've been ignoring, more or less successfully!) And big thanks to all SP friends who have been so kind an... Read more

SEQUENTIALLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY

Saturday, February 20, 2010      15 comments

I've been thinking quite a bit about a recent FRACTALMYTH blog on focus, the necessity of deciding what to do and moving ahead etc. etc. This seems to me to be a perpetual problem for women in particular. We women are told, unceasingly, ... Read more

I Can Never Exercise Enough to Eat Whatever I Want

Sunday, February 14, 2010      11 comments

OK, this should be self-evident by now, right? But apparently it isn't. I have to keep reminding myself. Or the scales will remind me otherwise very quickly! I am exercising more and experimenting with a return to running which I am ve... Read more

Friday, January 22, 2010      11 comments

Yup, love dogs too -- particularly my own golden retriever, Charlie, whose call name is "Heart of Gold". Prophetic, that was. Best dog ever. But I also love other people's dogs whether they have hearts of gold or not. And once in a whi... Read more

Bird Story

Friday, January 15, 2010      19 comments

I've been thinking recently about how much I enjoy birds -- probably because of all the birds we have had at our feeders over the past couple of weeks. It's been great to see the gold finches in winter plumage at the window finch feeder; the w... Read more

Podrunner Week One All Done

Friday, January 08, 2010      10 comments

Completed my three sessions for week one this morning -- and realized that I've got a bit of twinge developing in my right knee. Not at all alarming -- but noticed it. And so I focused during my weights session on lower body -- keeping the... Read more

I can resist anything but temptation

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      8 comments

It's my belief that because I know I have no will power, all I can do is structure my life in such a way as to avoid temptation. Me and Oscar Wilde. If I buy potato chips or bake a lemon pie (yup, that was a big mistake: but delicious!!) then ... Read more
