Keto Macronutrients -- HOW MUCH?
Saturday, October 06, 2018      0 comments

It's frustrating: nobody says definitively what they are!!! Lots of research proved that nobody was going to say definitively! But all that research showed me the reason why... it is because it is the only diet that actually realizes that ever... Read more
Why is it important to me to lose weight?
Tuesday, August 28, 2018      1 comments

If you are struggling to define your "why" one thing to consider is whether or not you have a personal or emotional investment in what you are trying to accomplish. If the answer is "no," then you need to go back to the drawing board and start o... Read more
Somebody asked me why I fasted..... (fascinating tidbit of info here!)
Friday, May 25, 2018      4 comments

Here's my answer: I've been learning. I'm well past menopause, and I've reached the point my mom always warned me about -- weight loss is very very slow to non-existent. Or is it just me and I should know better? So I looked for more, different,... Read more

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (ummm, that's me, going to court)
Monday, May 07, 2018      3 comments

I had my court trial date today. I've been losing sleep over my traffic accident for 6 weeks now, and I got a call late Friday that they wanted a continuance (delay in court date). I gave up being at my favorite uncle's funeral (he died 3 weeks... Read more
Another week, another 3 pounds

I've been trying to be very disciplined with this keto, very low calorie, protein-sparing diet I'm trying out. My limits are strict: 850 calories, less than 20 total carbs, 85-90 grams protein, and less than 60 grams fat. This is my second week... Read more
Switching to Keto: why, what, and how
Saturday, April 07, 2018      2 comments

I suppose things are different because I'm a 62 year-old woman. I slowly slipped as planned into eating LC. But after 3 weeks and no weight loss to speak of -- not even the initial rush of water loss, I decided to go VLCHF -- and with that de... Read more

Update: I've returned to regular exercise, including leading. Funny, but I have to take short "breathers" when someone else is leading, but I manage quite well when I'M doing the leading. The "breathers" are becoming shorter in duration --... Read more
Update on Pneumonia Recovery:
Saturday, March 10, 2018      2 comments

Physical status: much the same as last month -- only I don't "feel" the sputum in my lungs anymore. I am coughing much less. My lung capacity seems to have slipped a bit --either because I am no longer taking medicine or because I've stopped ... Read more
This past week
Sunday, February 11, 2018      3 comments

I've felt better and better, although my breathing capacity hasn't improved and I can still feel that last bit of leadenness (phlegm) in my right lung. I went to exercise Wed. and Friday and did okay. I can tell it has been so long since I've... Read more
...happy to report, 1 week later I went again to Zumba! With no ill effects!
Saturday, February 03, 2018      2 comments

I continue to work at erasing the effects of pneumonia (coughing up mucus and deep breathing to increase lung capacity). I almost feel normal. I've been missing my friends, so I went to Zumba yesterday. I repeated what I did last week -- the o... Read more
Getting older is SERIOUS business, OR, 24 days after the hospital, I went to exercise class!
Thursday, January 25, 2018      4 comments

Yes, I set the bar low, but I did better than I expected! Oh, I have missed everyone! Bette has introduced totally new-to-me music and choreography in Zumba class so most of the time I couldn't keep up. I'm still suffering the lasting eff... Read more
half-way to way to recovery after 23 days!
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      2 comments

Okay...so the doctor told me I could start acting normal. (LOL!) I've been seeing how much stamina I have left by going to the grocery stores and I also took my DD shopping. I can hold up on low activity stuff for about an hour. But on Sunday,... Read more
Is Ginger gonna die? Did I do it? I'm sick at heart.
Monday, January 15, 2018      3 comments

I mentioned in my previous blog I stayed far from my pet while I knew I was sick with some respiratory problems because of birds' delicate respiratory systems. The doctors said I wasn't contagious on New Year's Day -- I still stayed far away. ... Read more
Doc says I'm not contagious -- but I gotta do the work of healing
Thursday, January 11, 2018      1 comments

...saw the doc. I am doing fine. He convinced me that there is no reason to fear that I am contagious, and showed me how to use the devices I had been given at the hospital. He thought I might heal quite a bit sooner than 6 months since I am ... Read more
