It's probably true, as both nutrition experts and fat positive activists have warned for decades, that there's no perfect diet, that most people who try to lose weight wind up regaining it all and then some, and that, frankly, most people (mostly women!) who think their bodies aren't "perfect," are really just great the way … Continue reading Is that gal EVER going to update her verkakte blog??
Slow running and bad poetry, all in one place!
Hey, everyone! Sorry, I know I've been remiss in posting on my super wildly popular blog here at WordPress. But today I'll remedy that omission by telling you that not only did I do a really nice, long (for me!) run today (over 5,000 steps/1.5 miles, thankyouverramuch!), I also composed the following horrible poem when … Continue reading Slow running and bad poetry, all in one place!
It’s all behind me now!
Hey, everyone! Yes, that's right, my colonoscopy and all the associated prep has passed through my system and now I can relax for another 10 years till the next one! Although I'd like to believe they'll come up with something a little more, shall we say, dignified by then? Or at least less invasive! But … Continue reading It’s all behind me now!
Doing another charity walk, yahoo!
Hey, everyone! Would you believe a SUNDAY blog post? Haven't done that in a dog's age, eh?

Hey, everyone! As I mentioned last week, I didn't do a Wednesday blog post this week, for the first time in, oh, however long it's been since I've been doing this verkakte blog!

Heat waves and your diet/exercise plan
Well, howdy everyone, and yep, it's another super hot week out here in Southern California! So how does all this extreme weather affect our diet and/or exercise plans, if at all? Well, I don't know about you, but when it's so hot outside that I can feel the heat radiating inwards through the walls, I … Continue reading Heat waves and your diet/exercise plan
Colonoscopy time again! (plus an honest review of Crunch Fitness Simi Valley)
Hey, everyone! Well, as long-time readers may recall, last fall (hey, that rhymes!) I was supposed to get the always dreaded colonoscopy. However, due to unforeseen circumstances (the cancer diagnosis), it had to be postponed. Butt* now that everything's hunky-dory up top, it's time to race to the bottom! (*heh heh) However once again, due … Continue reading Colonoscopy time again! (plus an honest review of Crunch Fitness Simi Valley)
Calisthenics at home or the gym – a great solution!
Hey, everyone! I'm heading out to investigate yet ANOTHER in my long line of gyms that I might or might not join. This time it's a chain called Crunch Fitness.

Good morning, world! Time for a cancer update!
Hey, guess what? It's been five months plus one day since my lumpectomy! So I thought I'd just let you know how I'm doing, boob-wise. My scar is still very visible but seems to be healing nicely.
