How did I break my streak?
Monday, April 28, 2014      19 comments

I’ve logged in every day for well over a month. I have the sparkpoints to show for it every single day. I know it’s not a big deal. Although I really like to see those virtual trophies for fitness minutes, I’m not a streak leader or anythi... Read more

Saturday, April 19, 2014      20 comments

All the other race numbers this morning were 100-300. What did I do to deserve this? I know that elite runners are given special low numbers. That sure is NOT me.... Read more
An unexpected use for a “body shaper”
Sunday, April 13, 2014      28 comments

And the careless behavior that caused me to need it. Some years ago in a moment of vanity I bought a “body shaper.” My mother (and Betty White) would have called it a girdle. It was advertised as taking inches off your waist and hips and ... Read more

Thursday, March 20, 2014      15 comments

"Maybe it’s not YOU. Maybe it’s your diet” - Huh? I’m confused by this ad for a popular diet plan. It’s not YOU? Who else decides what you will be eating? I understand the importance of “diet” (the noun) and exercise too. That’... Read more
