I most certainly do not deserve my husby, cb. You might wonder why I do not say “hubby” and I will tell you. There are words which, to me, for some reason, perhaps old associations, perhaps forever unknown, have unpleasant connotations, making me literally cringe upon thinking, hearing, reading, or speaking them. Hubby is one […]

I did get through that run – four miles – yesterday, albeit a bit slower than I would have preferred. About 53 minutes. Weather was the best it has been for months and months. Wore gloves a warm shirt and hoodie over a t shirt, and one of those ugly hats, lr rather the type […]

Although I am a little nervous about going out for a run for the first time in months today, blogging this early is not a delay tactic. i am intentionally waiting till it gets a tiny bit warmer – before lunch, but maybe in an hour, hour and a half. I am nervous because it […]

The book I am “hearing” now. I put quotes around hearing because although I really am hearing it, it is weird to say one is hearing a book. Anyway, it is called Switch. It is about how to change, how to get others to change, how to get situations to change, and I don’t […]

As the reader is aware, i am prone to binge behavior, but as i have gotten older, i am able to bring my maturity and weight management strategies and tools to bear and pretty much avoid bingeing most of the time. The bingeing is different now than it used to be, partly because i make […]

Snow. Again. On Valentine’s Day, no less. I am so damn sick of it. It is the kind of winter you feel like you will never, ever climb out of. Do you know that among my worst nightmares is the recurring one in which it is, like, July, and it is snowing? Often, i have. […]

A few minutes to try to blog. Jenny asked during our Thursday morning elliptical rendezvous, “Are you still writing?” Obviously, she does not ever read my posts or she would not to ask, right? Anyway, if you consider this “writing,” then the answer is yes. Lately I have been beleaguered with an unusually high level […]

Disclosure: The following superficial post is even more so than usual. This was not the author’s original intention. On many occasions, author plans to write about one thing, but fingers end up taking another direction entirely, and let it be said, much to the author’s chagrin. Author’s mortification at publication of her thought processes, trivial […]

At Weight Watchers this week, I resolved that my new routine for the upcoming week – starting two days ago – was going to be “eat more slowly.” This would mean doing things like putting fork or spoon down between each bite, taking a sip of water before taking another bite, sitting and chatting between […]

I am lying in bed after a very nice long day of listenin’. Now I am listenin’ to some of the wonderful Pete Seeger songs I downloaded yesterday. Earlier today, Mollie, cb and I listened to a wonderful concert at Heinz Hall – Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. We had seats in the front of the […]
