Remember that old TV series, The Fugitive? That was a tag-line in the intro, week after week. And nope, I never got to watch it at the time it first ran, no TV at my house during my childhood. bBut somehow the whole series was obtained and I w... Read more
Two Christmas bizzness thingies . . .
Thursday, December 10, 2015      24 comments

. . . . both scheduled for today, both involving booze (not having any, they also involve driving) and standing up and chatting (I'm good with that) and fatty/salty/sugary snacking (I'll be looking for the veggies and the lean protein, in modera... Read more
Christmas Cookies
Wednesday, December 09, 2015      29 comments

My mum baked dozens of varieties of Christmas cookies: some simple (3 ingredient shortbread, brown sugar and flour and butter only -- but fiddly to roll out and cut with cookie cutters) and some very elaborate (strawberries made with red Jello p... Read more
Microlights
Tuesday, December 08, 2015      24 comments

My lavender tree is now sporting battery-operated microlights, in honour of the season: very very tiny, smaller than a grain of rice, and all white, so pretty on these gloomy dark days. It's lighting up breakfast omelettes AND supper soups... Read more
Microwave Egg-white Omelette
Monday, December 07, 2015      25 comments

This is a real go-to for me for breakfast. I buy the cartons of pasteurized egg white, spray the folding microwave omelette pan lightly with Pam olive oil and pour in a full cup of egg white (half in each side) then precook on high for 1 minute... Read more

www.lovestylelife.com/ I haven't read this new book by Garance Dore of course -- it's just out. But I have read several reviews of it in the media over the past several days. And it intrigues me. Dore is not talking ... Read more
Googled bikram and heart attack and chest pain . . .
Saturday, December 05, 2015      27 comments

. . . and my goodness, I came up with some rather sobering articles. People DO experience heart attacks in high heat(105 degree)/high humidity (40%+-- goes up quickly if the room is crowded) conditions. And fainting. And injuries, especia... Read more

I've got a pot of narcissus shooting up very nicely! And two pots of amaryllis, both from cheap supermarket kits bought "on sale". I'd thought maybe the bulbs were too dried out, but no: just slow. Now there's a red one beginning to show ... Read more
Busy Time of the Year
Thursday, December 03, 2015      24 comments

Isn't it amazing how much there is to do? Our "regular" lives continue -- work and family and all of that. And: we also need to keep on taking care of ourselves: making the time for food planning and making the time for exercise (yup, ... Read more
Warmed By All the Caring . . .
Wednesday, December 02, 2015      23 comments

It's going to be awhile before I'm feeling better. Did NOT go to the gym or to yoga this morning. Plan to attend Saturday night's "glam up" but not thinking I'll be up for a whole lotta dancing . . . Am thinking that next week's ... Read more
Clean Bill of Health

Thanks, Spark Peeps, for caring. My staff was worried too and insisted that one of them was driving me to the emergency department at the hospital. Had a cardiogram, had blood work, had a chest x-ray: and I'm OK. But doctor says: NO exerc... Read more
Yikes!! Pain!!
Tuesday, December 01, 2015      8 comments

Today was my fifth bikram class and I went with some mild left chest pain -- left with truly intense pain. First noticed it after Saturday's "baby" class -- went to the gym yesterday to work on it and thought it had improved. But no. ... Read more

Just Try Harder??? How Fair Is That?
Monday, November 30, 2015      25 comments

I've always suspected that I'm a bit of an exercise "non-responder": that is, exercise doesn't do as much for me in terms of weight maintenance as it does for other people. (Although maybe it does more for me than most in terms of mood and joy ... Read more
