#WriterWednesday: Confessions of a Geriatric Prom Queen by Lila Lee Silvern

The theme of this book is hitting a touch close to home as I too ease on toward a rather decent age milestone. I will certainly be looking to read this one soon! Thanks to the #FeedArtNetwork (a.k.a. Dangerous Lee) for the post.   Source: #WriterWednesday: Confessions of a Geriatric Prom Queen by Lila Lee Silvern

I Think My Tape Measure is Broken

May 30th: weight - 199 lbs. body fat - 36.4% waist - 39" hips - 46" September 15th: weight - 191.9 lbs. body fat - 34.9% waist - 38" hips - 46" Um...yeah. I'm pretty sure my tape measure is broken. Just kidding. It's been a slow and steady decline as far as the weight … Continue reading I Think My Tape Measure is Broken

Just place your flesh in this vice…

Yup. Time for the annual boob smoosh or as most women call it, my yearly mammogram. I would so like to meet the man (science hero my ass) who designed this contraption. Then, I'd like to place bits of his dangly flesh onto that cold bottom plate; manhandle them for a minute in order to … Continue reading Just place your flesh in this vice…

Giving tight and inflexible a new meaning.

I have to laugh. I've decided to add yoga to the mix of healthy lifestyle changes. I wanted to add weight training as well, but there is still this glitch that keeps me from going to the gym. Thinking it's time to invest that $10 / month in a set of those fun looking stackable … Continue reading Giving tight and inflexible a new meaning.

You Can’t Stop the Migraine Fairy – and other ‘drug’ induced nonsense

The essential oils I've been slathering on almost nightly now for two months; the meditation I attempt before falling asleep; the increased exercise (if you can call the walking I do 'exercise') and healthier eating...all of that combined has worked to reduce the number of headaches I have considerably, but when the Migraine Fairy decides … Continue reading You Can’t Stop the Migraine Fairy – and other ‘drug’ induced nonsense

Happenstance or is the Universe Trying to Tell Me Something?

Yeah, so this past week was one of those weeks... I'd pretty much had it with a lot of things. But, because I'm also pretty darn content with most other areas of my life, I decided it would be best to let off some steam on the dance floor instead of perched up on a … Continue reading Happenstance or is the Universe Trying to Tell Me Something?

Paradigm shifts – They do exist!

I've been on a bit of a downward spiral since my birthday. A reaction to someone I consider important having not acknowledged my birthday. Yeah, I know. Not that big of a deal when you consider the bigger picture, but that one little thing dug in under my skin and much like the blood sucking, … Continue reading Paradigm shifts – They do exist!

And now for something completely different. (Rated M for Mature)

This morning's commute spawned this discussion in my head. "How do you define sex?"   SEX is the insertion of an object into an individual's mouth, vagina, or anus. SEX can be used to produce pleasure produce off spring exert one's sense of power over another "But wait, that doesn't really cover all the bases. … Continue reading And now for something completely different.

50 Things to do before I turn 50

Don't know where I got THIS idea from, lol but what the hell right? I've got two years (well, a little less than two now with this already being a few days into July) to knock this stuff out.  Don't hold me to all of them though as some of it depends greatly on the … Continue reading 50 Things to do before I turn 50

Still got some work to do…

So yeah, I went to the gym last night.  First time since March, I think.  Put my podling on blast, made sure the ear buds were securely in my ears, and didn't make eye contact with anyone except the desk staff.  Went straight back to the free weights, secured a flat bench and proceeded to … Continue reading Still got some work to do…
