Baby, it’s hot out there!

9th June 2017 | 0 Comments

How does one dress to perform outdoors in 90+ degree temperatures? Make-up, eyelashes, feathers, girdles …I don’t think so! Hydration is key, and nutrition (protein) – Once, I sang in the heat on an empty stomach … bad move.


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – The Reboot! My Trainer Got Real Today!

8th April 2015 | 2 Comments

I knew it was coming. Last week, Jeremy the trainer was such a nice young man, gentle and kind. Today, he was still kind as he gently kicked my butt. It felt good – even when I fantasized about flinging that weighted ring thingy into the window instead of moving it slowly “to the right [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – The Reboot!

2nd April 2015 | 0 Comments

Well, I’m back to it again. I have officially decided to get healthy. Only this time I’m getting help and I am accountable to someone. Today marked my first session with a trainer and a fitness team. It all started in February while visiting my dear friends in Colorado. My friend is 83 years old [...]


Playing the Odds with Our Health.

8th May 2014 | 2 Comments

I am reeling from a scare yesterday. Someone very dear to me suffered a mild stroke in her home. She is younger than I and lives alone. Luckily she was able to get out and get herself to the hospital within an hour of the occurrence so she is expected to recover 100%. But this [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – It’s On!

12th November 2013 | 2 Comments

I am back at it. I have had so many false starts that I refrained from posting about my latest effort to lose weight. But it’s been several weeks now and after losing 16 pounds I am formally declaring: IT’S ON! I am obese. I am a fat ass bitch and I’m sick of it. [...]

My eating, the Mirror, the scale, video of me performing (Egads!) There is no denying it. I have become a fat bitch again. Don’t despair folks. We obese people can say these things about ourselves. And no matter how many of my dear ones smack my hand or pound the table as they offer their [...]


You Better Carry That Weight

22nd March 2012 | 1 Comment

Weird day today. A friend, a good friend who I’ve known for decades expressed “worry” that I might drop dead from being fat. Actually she said: “I worry about you” and then proceeded to tell me that another friend wanted to do an “intervention” which I later found out was not true. It was handled [...]


Been meaning to write but inexplicably unable to do so

25th May 2011 | 0 Comments

The title of this blog is taken from one of my favorite greeting cards. I wrote a different title back in March, shortly after my last post and saved it as a draft. The title was The Ugly Truth. Just a title no content. It’s probably better that I didn’t post it. I can’t really [...]


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Back at it.

4th February 2011 | 2 Comments

Missing In Action. That’s what they’ll say about me at the gym. I have fallen off the wagon. Oops! I wish I could blame it on “The Knee Chronicles” but I hopped off the ole’ girl awhile before that. However, I am not discouraged. I figure as long as I am still living, I can [...]


The Knee Chronicles: Wait & See & T.C.O.B.

31st January 2011 | 3 Comments

I had an “Arthritis Flare.” It was my very first and it was awful, horrible, debilitating and sudden, like BAM! I have been dealing with knee pain for awhile now but nothing like this. This experience taught me a lot. Shit happens to the body and I can neither control it, nor will it away. [...]
