Are Virtual Rewards of Value to You?
Monday, October 23, 2017      5 comments

The answer to this for myself was a surprise. I was recently wondering why I'd not gotten any more awards from Fitbit since I walk my arse off and thought it was time to get another one. Upon checking my FB dashboard, I saw that there are no m... Read more

Sunday, October 22, 2017      6 comments

I have toyed with fasting for a long time, and this was a very interesting film based on scientific findings in Russia, Germany and USC in the U.S. I'd love to hear from you about your experiences with fasting - positive or negative. ... Read more

There's a heat alert from Sunday to Wednesday of next week, and I'm ready to move to somewhere with cooler weather. (smiling) Sick of the heat. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the cooler temps and even walked at sunrise in the drizzles. Felt good... Read more
Confessions of a Recovering Sugar Addict. The Good, The Bad, and the Misc.
Thursday, October 19, 2017      12 comments

I was doing great with sugar for the past six months or so. That's why I figured I could handle getting the Halloween candy early for the trick or treaters. There were no cravings that forewarned. I think you can see where this is going. ... Read more
My First Ever Guava
Wednesday, October 18, 2017      7 comments

A neighbor just gave me some guavas off her tree and if I had to describe the taste of one, I'd say it has the consistency of a pear and slight taste of one, but a bit different. When I went to put it on the food tracker, it said "guava without... Read more

As you've probably seen on the news, CA is burning up. Yesterday's report was that there are 9,000 firefighters, some from Canada and the East Coast (USA) arriving here to help out. Very sorry for those who've lost their lives or possessio... Read more
Mushrooms Should Always Be Cooked?
Saturday, October 14, 2017      9 comments

This was the advice I recently read, and I was pretty surprised because I've eaten a lot of raw mushrooms. The advice said that, due to potential toxicity, mushrooms should always be cooked before eating. Any advice on this? I decided to ... Read more

Be Careful of What you Wish For
Thursday, October 12, 2017      12 comments

During these past few months of eating super super super well, I've occasionally had fantasies of being at Red Lobster as it's their annual Endless Shrimp promotion. Since I helped a family member with ER and doctor visits for his kidney ... Read more
My Personal Experiment. I Should Have Learned from Pet Food Nutrition.
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      10 comments

A long time ago, I did demos for a premium pet food company. At that time, potential customers complained that our bags were smaller than those they were currently using, and cost more. I explained that they would actually be feeding less beca... Read more

I had wonderful experiences with acupuncture in the distant past and have wanted to go back for a long time. Found a practitioner near me and today was my first appointment. He's from Korea with minimal English, but we somehow understand each ... Read more
Chlorine Can Ruin Diamonds, Locker Room Shyness, Not Feeling the Aerobics
Monday, October 09, 2017      7 comments

This morning's pool aerobics class was fun, but I'm not feeling the workout. Not that I'm in too great condition that I don't feel it, but I'm just not feeling anything. Maybe not doing the stuff correctly? Well, it's just fun to be in the cl... Read more
Hooray for Cooler Temps - Finally!
Sunday, October 08, 2017      7 comments

I think the summer hotness is finally over. Frankly, I've had it with hot weather. I know, I know, some people would love to be out of the cold. Tomorrow is my next aqua-fit class and I'm looking forward to it. Tuesday is my first acupu... Read more
My First Aqua Fit Class and 2 More Pounds Down (Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian Friends)
Saturday, October 07, 2017      10 comments

After I blogged yesterday about being too stressed to go to water aerobics, I decided to push myself to go. When we don't want to go is when we usually need it the most. So glad I did. I enjoyed it immensely and my reward was two pounds down ... Read more
Waving Goodbye to 3 More Lbs
Friday, October 06, 2017      11 comments

I guess my reward for avoiding yesterday's temptations was to see more downward scale movement. If I go to Endless Shrimp at Red Lobster, there is no such thing as moderation. It's just that simple. I should be going to my first aqua-fit ... Read more
