Hey, everyone! Didja miss me yesterday? Well, I didn't miss you! Okay, okay, I don't mean you *personally,* just blogging in general! I know I got you all used to Thursday being the "new" blogging day, and now here I am on Friday?? https://www.youtube.com/embed/kfVsfOSbJY0 And now you've got that song stuck in your head. Sorry! … Continue reading Friday is for cleanup!
Today’s forecast: brain fog in the morning, clearing by noon!
Hey, everyone! Well, here we are in beautiful, sunny Southern California, on a crisp autumn day in October, and what do you think I see from my window? That's right-- it's so dull, grey, and gloomy outside I can't even find an appropriate meme to express my feelings! (hee hee!) Anyway, this blog post won't … Continue reading Today’s forecast: brain fog in the morning, clearing by noon!
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! I almost didn't do a Thursday post either, since I just got home from a long drive to a doctor who, TBH, … Continue reading Told ya!
Major announcement, kinda sorta!
Well, hey everyone! Good morning, and happy Wednesday! It's been another week of alternately loathing and trying to ignore the new neighbors, who are busily destroying every vestige of anything even remotely resembling "vegetation" that might get in the way of their planned McMansion, including not one, not two, but three beautiful cypress trees which … Continue reading Major announcement, kinda sorta!
Another effin’ blog break?? But whyyyy???
Morning, friends, fans, and relatives (and I suspect most of you are the latter, so hi, cousins!!)! Welcome to another edition of Why I Don't Feel Like Writing a Blog Post This Morning! (from Kristen Lamb's "Why I hate blogging...but do it anyway") In my defense, it's been a busy week, what with Mr. 50by60 … Continue reading Another effin’ blog break?? But whyyyy???
Do as I say, not as I do! (most of the time, anyway!)
Hey, everyone, welcome back! Remember last week, when I said that because of the heat, you shouldn't exercise? Well, guess what I did the VERY SAME DAY I posted that valuable information? Yup, I went to the gym and did a full-on sweat-inducing workout! So there you go. I'm great at giving advice, but not … Continue reading Do as I say, not as I do! (most of the time, anyway!)
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
It’s so hot even this post is melting!
Well, hey, loyal readers! You may have noticed this post is a little late. That's because it's currently [checks pyrometer] 114 degrees Fahrenheit here in the beautiful San Fernando Valley! So I decided to do all my vigorous stuff (exercise, shopping, etc.) in the [relative] cool of the morning (I say "relative" because it was … Continue reading It’s so hot even this post is melting!
Back from vakay – and a Weight Watchers decision!
Hey everyone! Just got home from vakay - literally, less than an hour ago! I've already cleaned out my gorgeous rental car and moved all my crap back into my less-than-gorgeous-but-still-serviceable beater car. Tomorrow morning I'll return Gorgeous and start the process of returning to "normal," whatever that may be. And as part of that … Continue reading Back from vakay – and a Weight Watchers decision!
Let’s try this again, shall we?
Okay, so now that I'm COVID-free, I'm gonna try the Phoenix vacation again next week. Which means I won't be posting one of the wonderful blog posts you've all come to know and love! So this week, instead of talking about COVID and complaining about the patriarchy, how's about I talk about how I'm doing … Continue reading Let’s try this again, shall we?
