Clean Teeth!
Thursday, August 13, 2015      18 comments

Don't you just love a trip to the dental hygienist? Sure I floss and brush regularly -- and use the totally neat Sulcabrush thingy too. But: the professional cleaning and polishing does an incredible job and I feel like I'm starting ov... Read more
Love my work . . .
Wednesday, August 12, 2015      20 comments

Yup, it's stressful a lot of the time. And adversarial. High conflict, no kidding. And people do experience such grief and loss. From which they cannot be protected. But having said all that: it's worth doing. And even thou... Read more

One of my faves. And (although this is not my picture) I can't remember a summer when I haven't had them growing in my garden. My grandfather ... Read more
Fresh Week
Monday, August 10, 2015      18 comments

It's August 10! And a brand new fresh week stretches out in front of me. In some ways by fall 2014 I'd felt I missed most of the summer: just working too hard and not drinking it in. And so I vowed that this summer I'd deal with diff... Read more
Much Better Thank You!
Sunday, August 09, 2015      17 comments

Really appreciated all the comforting comments and helpful suggestions on yesterday's "food hangover" blog: and yes, it really is a hangover, just as if I'd drunk too much or (and I have never used drugs, not even one time, but I can imagine . .... Read more
Ate Too Much Yesterday . . .
Saturday, August 08, 2015      24 comments

About 500 calories more than my "upper range": just under 2,000 for the day. I don't do that very often. But when I do, I wake up the next morning (today) feeling yucky. Especially because most of those excess calories came in the... Read more
Gaaaaaah!!! Another Bat!!
Friday, August 07, 2015      21 comments

Swooooooooooooooping around the kitchen this morning -- there I was , placidly sipping coffee and reading the newspaper, when I just caught it out of the corner of my eye. Rapid departure to the laundry room, with the door closed. Leaving ... Read more
Pink
Thursday, August 06, 2015      21 comments

"In the pink": does anyone still use that phrase, to mean "feeling absolutely healthy"? I do feel "in the pink" today!! Lots of rest, enough exercise (although wish I had headed out to the golf course after work last night) and optimum n... Read more
Fifth Business
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      25 comments

Some years ago, Canadian Robertson Davies wrote a novel (one of the Deptford Trilogy) called Fifth Business. He's a great writer and i's a terrific novel. The title derives from a theatrical term referring to the character in a play who acts a... Read more
PHEBESS chips!
Tuesday, August 04, 2015      22 comments

What a lovely long weekend, despite the big storm. Yesterday's gym trip showed weight back down: and was followed by a late afternoon 9 holes of golf. We decided not to have supper at the club but to come home and spend the time with Char... Read more
Big Storm
Monday, August 03, 2015      22 comments

We spent quite a bit of time on the beach yesterday (blissful) but in the late afternoon Ontario was swept by fierce storms. Solid sheets of rain, greenish sky. Mini-tornadoes, really, with power interruptions (very brief at our place) and tre... Read more
No Laptop, Less Tracking = Upward Blip!!
Sunday, August 02, 2015      22 comments

Gahhhhh!! I've not been tracking my nutrition with the dedication required to maintain within a tight range: iPhone tracking is just too cumbersome/slow/annoying. Thought I was still "in compliance" with my daily calorie range anyhow. ... Read more
Temporary Laptop!! Yay Yay Yay!!!
Saturday, August 01, 2015      21 comments

I've really been hampered here at Spark since our break-in with no laptop at home: and really no time at work to check in. Using my iPhone and the mobile app is really really slow. But: DH has brought home a "work" laptop (used mostly for ... Read more
Amy Cuddy Writes Back: Power Posing and Obesity!
Wednesday, July 22, 2015      20 comments

Way back March 27 when I was finishing up a series of blogs about mental health and obesity, I referenced Amy Cuddy's terrific TED talk about power posing and about the effect on the mind that adopting a powerful pose. www.sparkpe... Read more
UK groceries
Monday, July 20, 2015      16 comments

Years ago my mum got her British magazines (Women, Woman Home if I recall the names correctly) which had quite a number of grocery item "adverts" that weren't routinely available in small town Ontario. Ribena, a black currant cordial with lots ... Read more
