I Want My Land Legs Back

What does rest mean? I really don't know. The treatment for my concussion is rest. What's that? You mean sleep? I don't get it. In forty-five days I should have recovered completely if I rested - in one hundred days if I didn't rest. I'm not recovered yet, so that must mean I didn't rest,... Continue Reading →

This is the note Steve left me on the kitchen counter this morning. And along with it this booklet. As I told my doctor: I'm not going to think about it till I have the biopsy. There's nothing I can do now anyway. I'll probably read the booklet after the biopsy and before I receive... Continue Reading →

Big Foot’s Not Going To Win This One…

Eleven Days After The Fall - when Big Foot (the scale) tripped me in the bathroom in the middle of the night and the bathtub sucker-punched me. This is the first day I went out absent the face make-up. That "It" make-up for people with blemishes or rosebuds or scars or uneven coloring on their... Continue Reading →

When It Rains It Pours…another big foot update

Alright, so I go to the doctor about my fall and resultant injuries. He sees the pictures I took, asks me a bunch of questions, examines me. He orders a bunch of blood work and is more concerned about the dizziness and resultant balance difficulties, than he is about any broken bones I might have... Continue Reading →

Update On Big Foot

I couldn't get in to see my doctor till Tuesday, so took pictures in case I was healed by then. Urgent care or the emergency room would have only referred me back to him with a pat on the head and instructions to take Tylenol. I wasn't critical, so thought to save my insurance money...

It’s The Scale’s Fault

The BIG FOOT scale I put in our tiny bathroom tripped me in the middle of a bathroom run in the middle of the night and the bathtub sucker-punched me right in the kisser as I fell. I could have died. I could have broken my nose, jaw, teeth, neck. Maybe I did. My nose... Continue Reading →

WEIGH-IN 2 DAYS PER WEEK: BEST DAY AND WORST DAY

When I looked over the months of weights recorded, my best weigh-in day is usually (not always) Wednesday. Steve's week-end (Monday and Tuesday) is over - that's when I weigh the least. I eat less when he's home. We do more together. I'm not working all day - alone with Lilly Belle - cooking, maintaining... Continue Reading →

KAPUT

What do they say about the best-laid plans? They often go awry? Well, that's me and my gym/spa escapade. I have to get up so early, and the bus trip is long and sometimes the bus wait isn't a pleasant experience, then the bus trip back all before Steve goes to work. Then on opposite...

TURNING THE CORNER

Steve finally made it to the gym after procrastinating since September 2016. In fairness he had a stroke over Christmas and had a long recovery from carotid artery surgery, so he had some excuses. For me there were lots of excuses, but none of them were valid - the main one being I just didn't... Continue Reading →

2 March 2017 Weight Loss Update

For months I've been putting off doing an update, since my weight fluctuated all over the place. But, since today is my birthday and I couldn't sleep, I decided to get up and do some calculating. Granted I've had some stress in my life and I'm beginning to think now that it's not just the... Continue Reading →

30 October 2016 – weight loss update

My goal is to lose 5 lbs. per month. For the third month I've reached that goal. For weeks I weighed myself everyday, then only when I felt like it. Now it's about every ten or so days, usually after a weekend, but not always. My final weight for the month is usually taken on... Continue Reading →

THE YOYO DIET

THE FAT-FREE MISNOMER Yeah, fat-free is really a misnomer. If it's food, if it can be eaten, it has fat in it. Fat of some kind in some proportion, no matter how small, it's there. So, fat-free in the area of food doesn't exist. Even carrots contain fat. Plain ol' carrots. Just try to peel... Continue Reading →
