YES, WE'RE PANICKING! We have reason!
Sunday, March 15, 2020      5 comments

The Covid-19 pandemic is causing panic and breeding fear of others. As rabbi Shai Held writes in The Atlantic, it has led to callous attitudes from some quarters toward the elderly (65+), who are most at risk of dying from the coronavirus. This ... Read more
Sick. Again.

Ever since I got pneumonia 2 years ago, I haven't felt fully recovered. Doctor says I'm fully recovered, butI just don't seem to have the air, nor the energy I used to. And I have the same kind of cough again. Started out subtle. Slow. Ta... Read more

Bear Update
Sunday, September 08, 2019      4 comments

I've named the bear Blondie. He's growing nicely -- and still visiting us -- cllimbing the stone wall preparing to come down onto our patio. Still he climbs up always in the same spot -- 15 feet from where I sit at my computer inside -- that's... Read more
Getting to know a ***** Bear !!!
Tuesday, July 16, 2019      7 comments

I live on the side of the leading edge of the Front Range. Out the front windows we have a view of the plains. Out the back, the view is of a steep ascent of grass and firs. An unmaintained (and probably no longer on the map, but still legal rig... Read more
The Bear that came to Dinner
Friday, June 21, 2019      7 comments

Yesterday, a juvenile black bear wandered up to the house while we were eating dinner and placed its paws on the dining room window. (What a compliment to my good cooking!) The blind was down so maybe it couldn't see us but we sure noticed him!... Read more
LC Tip of the Day: #231
Saturday, January 19, 2019      1 comments

Figure out what you want MORE than food. Burn it into your thoughts --create an “inspirational memory” of it. See, feel, touch—involve all the senses in your “memory.” Call it up when you are facing temptation.... Read more
Why write a note to your future self?
Sunday, January 06, 2019      1 comments

Be mindful. Check in with yourself before making food choices and ask yourself if you are physically hungry or if you are eating for another reason such as boredom or procrastination. If you are not physically hungry, walk away. Find something e... Read more
Keto Macronutrients -- HOW MUCH?
Saturday, October 06, 2018      0 comments

It's frustrating: nobody says definitively what they are!!! Lots of research proved that nobody was going to say definitively! But all that research showed me the reason why... it is because it is the only diet that actually realizes that ever... Read more
Why is it important to me to lose weight?
Tuesday, August 28, 2018      1 comments

If you are struggling to define your "why" one thing to consider is whether or not you have a personal or emotional investment in what you are trying to accomplish. If the answer is "no," then you need to go back to the drawing board and start o... Read more
Somebody asked me why I fasted..... (fascinating tidbit of info here!)
Friday, May 25, 2018      4 comments

Here's my answer: I've been learning. I'm well past menopause, and I've reached the point my mom always warned me about -- weight loss is very very slow to non-existent. Or is it just me and I should know better? So I looked for more, different,... Read more
