Band Width
Tuesday, December 04, 2018      28 comments

There IS (contemporary brain science tells us) only so much band width to go around. That's why it's hard to focus on two areas of weight maintenance simultaneously. Susan Peirce Thompson of Bright Line Eating, for example, recommends focusin... Read more

We're having a melty slushy interval here . . . with a brief burst of sunshine late yesterday. And we took advantage of that to go for a brisk walk around the block!! I was wearing my new sheepskin boots barefoot!!! My goodness that was plushy... Read more
Big Heads
Sunday, December 02, 2018      25 comments

I really enjoyed the comments on yesterday's blog, where I riffed on my difficulties with the Spark Trivia questions (got a couple wrong again this morning . . . ). And joked about how useful this is in combatting my big head so that I can at le... Read more

Yes, the saga of the sheepskin boots has come to a happy conclusion . . . the boots arrived, they fit beautifully and I tested them out yesterday on a recess walk. Ahhhhh! I'm thinking: absolutely well worth the rather extravagant investment!!... Read more

"I'm not judging . . . "
Monday, November 26, 2018      26 comments

"I'm not judging." I hear this phrase more and more often (for example, Michael Douglas uses it in his Kominsky Method role). We say we're not judging because we believe it's better NOT to judge. That judging others is wrong. (I'm... Read more
This 'n That
Sunday, November 25, 2018      22 comments

The Kominsky Method -- on Netflix -- is pretty hilarious: an 8 part series entirely suitable for aging baby boomers!! Got me laughing for sure. Michael Douglas is superb. Alan Arkin too. And: just watched the initial episode of Dogs docu... Read more
On their way . . .

. . . that's those sheepskin boots! (And, given the Canada Post strike, I'll believe it when I see 'em actually delivered . . . ) I really enjoyed the comments on the self-deprivation blog yesterday. No question, the whole internal battle... Read more

I blog to figure out for myself what I'm thinking and feeling -- and every once in a while, in my burble something sticks in my brain and I keep ON thinking about it. In that recent Sheepish blog about deciding to indulge myself with new s... Read more
Sunshine!!
Thursday, November 22, 2018      22 comments

What a difference it makes, no matter HOW cold (it's -16C right now) , to have bright sunshine and blue skies! My drive to work yesterday was "white knuckle" through white-out conditions with blowing snow and pretty much no visibility: an... Read more
Happy Thanksgiving to All American Sparkies!!
Wednesday, November 21, 2018      23 comments

Thanksgiving is a really big event in the USA (or at least, I experienced it that way some years ago in Austin, Texas). And we Canadians have celebrated last month, in October -- while the harvest was in full swing and the leaves still br... Read more
Commuting and Weight
Tuesday, November 20, 2018      22 comments

For many years I lived in the city and commuted (driving) to a job outside the city. And for many MORE years I lived outside the city and commuted (by bus) into the city when I returned to school. When I was commuting, I put on weight... Read more
