My weight loss journey: grief

12 May 2024 4 minute read 1 comment Namae

Content warning: I'll mention death in this post. Two weeks ago I went to visit the orchard I mentioned in my last post. I wanted to write about it last week but I ended not writing anything at all. My grandfather passed away more than five years ago...

It's travel days and we are off for our amazing bike tour in Europe. We left the house way too early in the morning only because of all the flooding that has happened in our area and we had an hour and a half drive to the airport. We did not encount...

It's T-minus one day until we head out on another cycling adventure of a lifetime. We are flying to Europe and then we will be visiting five countries over the course of the next three weeks on a bicycle built for two. We are flying our nine-foot-lon...

My weight loss journey: spoiled food

28 Apr 2024 3 minute read 0 comments Namae

Last week I moved out of my rental. While emptying the pantry we found one of those shameful, sad hamburger buns. You know the type: you have 3 hamburgers and 4 buns, so one of those gets forgotten and shoved to the depths of your pantry, getting all...

There's a Lot to be Said About Looking Like an Idiot (Kids are wiser than we are....)

This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit my son and his family. He has two daughters, who are three years old and five years old. They are joyful, fun-loving, energetic and very tiring kids (in a good way), and we love them to death. The olde...

It's Okay to be Wrong (Step 1 of learning)

18 Apr 2024 8 minute read 3 comments 7th Decade Redhead

In the early days of our relationship, my husband used to say, "I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken." After 40 years of togetherness, I don't hear him say that anymore.  Why? Because he's old enough and wise enough to realize that if you a...

My weight loss journey: we are what we eat

14 Apr 2024 2 minute read 4 comments Namae

I just watched a documentary titled Better brain health: we are what we eat. I know I watched it a couple of summers ago because my cable provider has it on demand every now and then. I remembered some of the things stated in the film as they made an...

My New Go-To Dessert for Gatherings (ANYONE can make this)

13 Apr 2024 4 minute read 1 comment 7th Decade Redhead

I've mentioned before that I can easily get sucked into the world of Facebook and Instagram reels which offer a lot of dietary information, most of which I tend to ignore because you really can't trust what people are saying when their goal is gainin...

Breakfast Club - "Don't you... forget about me....."

11 Apr 2024 9 minute read 1 comment 7th Decade Redhead

There is a lot of talk on the internet about skipping breakfast, or rather having a large period of time between the previous evening's meal and the first meal the following day.  Morning is my leisure time so I'm all about breakfast (and coffee). I'...

Procrastination Again!!! (Part II, because I procrastinated.....)

8 Apr 2024 7 minute read 0 comments 7th Decade Redhead

I thought this topic was sort of a 'one and done' post but apparently the ordinary course of my life has circled me around back to it. Yes, most of us are putting off unpleasant (and sometimes even pleasant) tasks or conversations that need to happen...
