Red White and Blue Take 3
Sunday, September 16, 2018      17 comments

OK then. Today I changed up my microwave egg white omelette with strawberries and blueberries by eliminating yesterday's lemon Greek yogourt and adding 1 cup of non-fat cottage cheese to the egg white: more of a "blintz" kinda thing. ... Read more
Red White and Blue Take 2
Saturday, September 15, 2018      26 comments

I repeated my egg white omelette (no added sweetener) but this time NOT cooking in the strawberries and blueberries: treating the omelette more like a wrap for fresh berries mixed with lemon Greek yogourt. Mmmmmm. I think I like that ... Read more

An egg white omelette with strawberries and blueberries. Mmmmmm. No added sugar (or sweeteners). Lots of protein for the "calorie buy". Plus all the goodness in those fruits!! Quick quick quick in the microwave. Gre... Read more

Thursday, September 13, 2018      22 comments

Oh yeah. And anticipating, I somehow still made time to schedule a brisk "recess walk". Including a few minutes to pick myself an office bouquet of fall wildflowers from a near-by meadow -- some purple vetch, Queen Anne's lace, butte... Read more

Wednesday, September 12, 2018      29 comments

Yes, that was one of the Trivia questions again this morning: How many calories does the average American burn cleaning house each year. Gahhh. This particular Canadian does not come close to the 50,000 calorie average. Maybe 500 calories... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Nine Years' Maintenance??? Gahhhhhhhh!!!
Sunday, September 09, 2018      38 comments

How ironic that the nine years' maintenance anniversary occurred while I was travelling . . . and not being entirely compliant with my program. Indulged in fries a couple times AND one smallish bag of Irish potato chips split with my DH: no... Read more

Spent a few days in Ireland with DH, meeting up with him for some birding after he'd been there a week or so golfing with his brothers. The start was a pretty hectic trek of close to 22 hours continuous travel -- I flew into Dublin, took a ... Read more

Too Many Clothes
Monday, August 27, 2018      27 comments

Yesterday I began the process of clearing my closet of summer whites and pastels. And summer white shoes. Anything I had not worn this summer? Went into bags for the thrift store. Anything I had not worn with pleasure this summe... Read more

Is Meat Cooked???
Saturday, August 25, 2018      27 comments

Is Meat Cooked . . . in the sense of "done for"? Such that no ethical actor can or will countenance the eating of meat? Or dairy products? Or eggs? That's the provocative title of a story in this morning's Globe and Mail which I can't l... Read more
Sparkly Day
Friday, August 24, 2018      26 comments

When I walked down the driveway to pick up my morning newspaper, there was a nip of autumn in the air. The grass (regrown after our drought . . . ) was heavy-laden with dew and sparkling in the early sunshine. And the first sprays of t... Read more
