Thursday, March 19, 2015      16 comments

I thought this was interesting - heard it on NPR yesterday

So what else is new?
Monday, March 02, 2015      18 comments

Usually when people say that, it's in response to some announcement that they've heard a hundred times before ("It's going to snow tomorrow!" "So what else is new?") but this time I really feel some new stuff coming on. I'm not losing weigh... Read more

The dejection of a bad weigh-in day, and the dawning of realization.
Saturday, February 07, 2015      20 comments

Yeah, disappointing weigh-in. We've all had them. I followed the Fast Metabolism diet for three weeks, lost 3.5 pounds the first week and not an ounce since. After thinking of myself as a fat, sad blob for about ten minutes (pretty much my att... Read more

So it started with this: (there was supposed to be a picture of a cat sleeping in a basket here, but I took it with my phone and tried to email it to myself so I could upload it here, and the mail server is down. It'll show up eventually) ... Read more

I spent a week with my daughters over Christmas, came home Tuesday, and I always need a couple days of "re-entry" after a long visit with them. (I was there for a week at Thanksgiving, too.) My house is too quiet, I'm tired (it's a 400 mile dr... Read more
Effort: Small vs Heroic
Thursday, January 01, 2015      12 comments

This is something I've been thinking about for a while now. When I was in my thirties (I'm bearing down hard on 60 now, although I don't feel like it) I was heavily into body building. I never wanted to enter a competition, but I did all t... Read more

Fascinating and simple recipe to try: Pine syrup!
Sunday, November 09, 2014      7 comments

This stuff is amazing in tea and I'm sure in a bunch of other things I haven't thought of yet. Following the pine syrup recipe is the recipe for using it in an Alpine Manhattan. I have not yet made this but it sounds wonderful, and would m... Read more

I remember years and years ago, my husband and I were going somewhere in the city (Philadelphia), I was driving, and someone cut me off on the Schuylkill Expressway. The fact that the Schuylkill (known locally as the "sure kill") Expressway was... Read more

I ran away from SP in the spring when I inexplicably gained weight. I've since learned that that's a silly thing. The next week I'd lost it again, whether by whim of weight or scale. We weigh what we weigh - it has as much to do with our over... Read more
I'm out - for a while anyway.

This is just stupid and inexplicable, but after ten days of landscaping six hours a day, drinking tons of water, eating salads and very little else, Ive gained seven pounds. I don't understand how this is possible, but it's same scale, same pla... Read more
