Camel Toe Sausage Casing

March 12th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Venting

Apparently I am uncomfortable with any level of positive self esteem in my life. I began the past two weekends feeling pretty good about myself, but quickly rectified that by going swimsuit shopping one Sunday and then shopping for jeans the next. Both were ill conceived outings I will concede, but I have been working […]

The Un-Thong Song

April 8th, 2011 · Comments Off · Everything else is gravy, Venting

I have a confession to make. I owned a thong bathing suit. I know it was wrong and I am ashamed. The truth is that no one, save actual Brazilian women and possibly JLo, should ever, ever wear a thong bathing suit. I have never had a thong-worthy bottom; not when I owned the thong […]

Let’s Get Physical

November 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Stuff

I have suffered with back pain for years. Last year it reached a critical point where I actually went to the doctor. I don’t like to rush into things, as you can see. I went to the doctor seeking less a solution and more something to take away the pain. The doctor, missing all my […]

A weighty issue to consider

September 8th, 2010 · No Comments · Animals on my planet

You know how a little extra weight can creep up on you? One day all your favorite clothes fit well and then without any significant dietary change they begin to feel snug. Its not until you actually step on the scale that you realize that you have put on ten pounds with no effort at […]

Bro-mance – a summer fling

July 19th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stuff

I learn something new about my husband from time to time, even after almost 12 years. Not often mind you – I graduated years ago in my immersion course on everything Bob. But this I did not know. Bob is one of those guys who can’t break up with someone. Recently Bob entered into a […]

I’m no Kirstie Alley, but..

May 8th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff

I have been trying to lose a couple pounds before weather gets really nice and the weather has been cooperative by taking its sweet time. Unfortunately I have only been doing part of what I know is necessary to drop the lbs. I have been eating reasonably well (with a little chocolate breakdown here and there), but […]

What I have in common with prison inmates and other issues

March 17th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Stuff

I don’t have much that isn’t nonsense to share, but who couldn’t use a little nonsense?  Sunday in a most unusual method of seduction, Bob let me know that my high school boyfriend was on television. He  thought I might want to check him out (it’s a sports thing or Bob would have no idea […]

Wheel(s) of Fitness

February 21st, 2009 · No Comments · Venting

When luggage began appearing on wheels (yes I am that old, but its not like I remember the original wheel) I thought, of course. Actually I thought “We have been schlepping luggage around for how many years? Man, are we a bunch of dumb bunnies.” But it was a good and functional plan that has […]

Fitness phobias

January 16th, 2009 · No Comments · Stuff

In an effort to keep my New Year’s Intention (or resolution if you must) I have been going to Pilates class again. I stopped going last April when the expressway between my house and the health club was under construction. The construction ended in September but apparently I had forgotten the way in the interim.
