Just Eat Less (Why didn't I think of that... eye roll..)

I've written about this before, but because we are on Week One of calorie deficit diet for you and a reboot of the diet for me (and maybe you as well if you have done this diet before), I feel it is important to bring it up again.  You may also be pa...

Is it Hot in Here? (I think so, but others don't)

One of my personal arguments for promoting and being on the calorie deficit diet is that it is 'science' based. I believe that we are subject to laws of thermodynamics. If you asked me weeks ago what I meant by that, I would have 'smartly' (cluelessl...

It's Not a Soap Opera..... (But it felt like one...)

  I wrote this before the horrible tragedy struck our family New Year's Eve day (see January 2nd's post).  I know it's a bit long... sorry.   It's the day after Christmas. My husband and I are alone in our home once again. There is a sense of relief...

Calorie Deficit Diet Reboot. (This is not how I wanted to start this...)

Day one of the reboot of my calorie deficit diet. It's 6:11 am and I am sitting here with my coffee, the requisite one tablespoon of half and half added, which I measured and logged in My Fitness Pal. I got up and stepped on the scale. I've gained se...

One of my favorite TV shows several years ago was "That 70's Show." I grew up in the 1970s, so I was able to watch my teenaged angst from the outside and laugh at how silly we were back in those days. As far as I'm concerned, they nailed teenage life...

The Dog Ate My Homework... (Pssss.... you're not ready..)

One thing I've noticed since I've lost weight is that my conversations with friends inevitably include talking about what I did to lose it, which leads to a discussion of the calorie deficit diet. This mainly happens with friends who I don't speak wi...

I Wish...... (Hey Santa! Are you listening?)

This year, our immediate and extended family arrived from all over the US, to celebrate Christmas at what we call "The Family Compound" in Texas. My husband and his siblings all live next door to each other. This is a recent development in our lives...

Why I Have Checkered Bows on My Windows....

19 Dec 2023 3 minute read 0 comments 7th Decade Redhead

I opened my hall closet to look for my holiday linens and said "oh" to myself. There, on a shelf were three large-ish bows. One was black and white checkered, the other two were red and black checkered.  They are in my closet because I was crazy enou...

Everyone is Happy at This Time of Year (....huh?????)

I used to get frustrated when my mother stopped going all out for the holidays with lots of decorations, homemade treats, and an enthusiastic demeanor. I wanted to be able to bring my kids to her house and enjoy Christmas the way she and my dad did i...
