Well, okay, my teeth don't look like that. However, over the past several years, I have got into the habit of brushing my teeth for about 3 minutes at a time ...... Read more
Ooh. Olives!
Saturday, November 29, 2008      8 comments

I grew up never having seen an olive. My ex introduced me to them - his favourite snack - I hate to admit that for 15 years after having tasted my first olive, I detested the... Read more
How does 500 calories equate to a pound???
Friday, November 28, 2008      5 comments

Okay, I _wasn't_ on the ball yesterday. Stayed low-cal all day, then decided to bake a frozen low-cal pizza for dinner. One serving should have been a quarter of that pizza, for just 230 calories. Instead, I topped it with 90 grams MORE cheese, ... Read more
ZERO is a good number!

That's a pound of FAT. One of those was on my body for 4 days. And it brought along 5 of its little friends. Yiiii! As I look back at the week, I realise that this week ... Read more
No Hallowe'en Candy!
Saturday, November 01, 2008      5 comments

Oh, this is just hilarious. Yesterday was Hallowe'en, and I was feeling really virtuous. I live in a high-rise building that doesn't allow trick-or-treaters to go upstairs - they just set out candy in the lobby. And I don't GO to the lobby... Read more
She's a maniac!

An _exercise_ maniac, that is. During week 1 of the BLC challenge that I'm on, I managed to rack up a total of 1243.5 minutes. That's ... oh, let me see ... well over 20 hours of walking, jogging, cycling, strength training, dancing, and stretch... Read more
Weight up 4.5 pounds this week!
Wednesday, October 08, 2008      12 comments

It's been a while since I blogged ... just been busy with some existential angst. And cooking 3 whole chickens. And lots of veggies. And getting in lots of low-stress, low impact exercise. And lifting weights pretty regularly. And eating fewe... Read more
What AM I?
Thursday, October 02, 2008      14 comments

So, who AM I, and, more important, WHAT am I? It's been a lifetime, and I have to admit, I _still_ don't know the answers to those two questions. And it BUGS the heck out of me. Possibility: I'm a fat pig. Analysis: Not true. I'm fat... Read more
Odd eating patterns ... or are they?
Monday, September 29, 2008      7 comments

For the past 3 or 4 days (I think this started last Thursday), I've been HUNGRY. Well, maybe it's been more a _desire_ for food than actual hunger, but it's been _feeling_ like hunger. Thursday was a mild exercise day after the unexpected, unpla... Read more
For Ali!

So, you're going to be swimming past the Toronto shoreline? Or just did? Cool! Well, I hope you recognise that skyline, then. It's the waterfront, at night. The tall tower is, of course, the CN Tower, which used to be the world's tallest fr... Read more
I can edit my SparkPage!
Monday, September 22, 2008      8 comments

Most of you have NO idea why that title justifies an exclamation mark. Do you? Nope? Didn't think so! You see, when your weight is above what you recorded as your starting weight at Spark, the site tools think that you ought to be able to g... Read more
Here's to good friends!
Friday, September 19, 2008      6 comments

This should probably have gone in my personal journal, but I'm feeling like I need the reminder. Again. (Why are there sooo many things I need to remind myself about???) I've been going through some pretty tough issues (no, not health, than... Read more
Alphabet soup: B, C, D, E, Ca, K, Mg, Na, Fe, P ...
Thursday, September 18, 2008      2 comments

I was just reading You: The Owner's Manual. And the list vitamins and minerals those doctors tell us the body needs is truly horrendous. Well, daunting, I guess, not really horrendous. There's Ca for the bones, aided and abetted by D and Mg, K f... Read more
Fried egg sandwiches and kiwi fruit
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      5 comments

Eggs. Eggs. EGGS. E G G S! There. Four little letters. And they're my favourite food. (Well, right at this moment, they ARE!) Eggs raise all kinds of terrible concerns. Too much cholesterol, says one study. Too much fat, says another. ... Read more
Some people never learn ...
Monday, September 15, 2008      7 comments

... and I seem to be one of them! After having a fantastic ten days or so, I got complacent. Accepted an invitation to spend the weekend with family. FULLY aware that my decision-making capabilities are shut off when I am around family! Wou... Read more
