Oh, Annie Lane!

Annie Lane’s column today is titled, “Time to Address Table Manners”. Oh geez. I’m glad she’s still tackling the big issues. Dear Annie: We need help in handling a family situation that arose during a Thanksgiving visit. My brother-in-law has no table manners. He generally forgoes silverware and eats whatever he thinks appropriate with hisContinue reading “Oh, Annie Lane!”

Hitting the reset button!

So, I awoke too early today after sleeping horribly last night. As you recall from my previous blog post, I screamed in the middle of the night. It was that bad. At the time I wondered if I’d really screamed or if it was a dream, but Sonya mentioned it as soon as I wokeContinue reading “Hitting the reset button!”

Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!

Well, I’ve got a scheduling conflict. As you all know, I’ve been struggling mightily to lose fifty or so pounds that I’ve been carrying for the past ten years. I was just now messing around online and checking out if I can take an in-person class, now that the threat of the coronavirus seems toContinue reading “Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!”

I’m a genie in a bottle!

Darn it all! It’s been eight days since I got the vaccine, and I still can’t do my treadmill routine anymore. I went back and tried, and I got lightheaded. My pulse skyrocketed, so I turned down the speed of the treadmill from 3.2 mph to 2.5 mph (while maintaining the 4° incline). That gotContinue reading “I’m a genie in a bottle!”

Struggling but doing it!

I awoke with a dreadful headache and finally took some pain pills. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the gym today. It’s becoming harder and harder to go, especially since I haven’t yet conquered the footwear issue. I think my second pair of new shoes (which will hopefully work better than the first)Continue reading “Struggling but doing it!”

The day I conquered the treadmill.

Guess who just spent an entire hour on the treadmill? Heck, yeah. I feel close to death. I kept my heartbeat in the range of 140-155 by going 2.2 mph at a 6.5° incline (more or less–I kept making slight adjustments). Yeah. A whole freakin’ hour. Oh, hey, guess what? I burned 325 calories. Nice…?Continue reading “The day I conquered the treadmill.”

Doing my dead-cat routine!

I haven’t blogged lately about my iffing (intermittent fasting) efforts. I figured I’d catch you all up on it.  I’d assumed that a later-in-the-day window for eating would work well for me, like from 4:00 PM until bedtime, for example. However, I was wrong. For whatever weird reason, I feel compelled to eat as soonContinue reading “Doing my dead-cat routine!”
