Health and Exercise

After having fallen off the (exercise) wagon several times, I’ve climbed back onto the horse. (See how good I am with mixing metaphors?) I don’t read the news, which is hard for this news junkie to do. And yet, I feel way better than I used to. I think during the winter when cabin fever […]

For Black Women: Why White Men are a Better Choice

A topic guaranteed to make your teeth grind or make you smile. I am tongue in cheek, so if you don’t see any clarifications like the word some, I still don’t mean all. So, I’m looking around the web, and as a woman who likes men I’m seeing a positive development: black women affirming an […]

Hair: Length Check and Bantu Knots

Note: My hair type is 4a-z, nappy, kinky, coily, cottony, soft, fine, moderately thick, and very very delicate. Time to check the hair length again! It grows so slow now-a-days. I’m still trying to figure out where that growth spurt a couple of years ago was due to. I had to cut off 1/2 an […]

Life Style: Switching Up Routines

Time Flies It is one thing to schedule events to keep the self busy, it is another to make sure they serve some purpose. Going out for the sake of going out can be a rather aimless waste of time as well. Ever notice how everything happens at once? You get a phone call on […]

Hair A Few More: Leave-In Conditioners

Hair Length Goal I did not have a particular hair length goal before. I simply wanted to know how to treat my hair well, and to be satisfied with the results. I’ve worn my hair natural (without relaxers, perms, or any other kind of toxic chemicals) most of my life. My styling and treatment of […]

Health Issue: Salt, Sodium and Exercise

During the winter I watch what I eat, yet I rarely exercise. I stop around the time I need to see a doctor regarding respiratory or bronchial problems. I was rather good at keeping my weight down. Yet, come Spring it jumps up a bit. I’ve been walking since February, but haven’t made much headway. […]

Weight Loss: Staying on Course

In my daily journal (spiral notebook), I enter the following: date of entry weight for that morning, before I eat exercise conducted – period of time of exercise – estimate of calories burned calories to eat for the day – every meal I eat is subtracted from this total. There you have it. Everyday, I […]

Weight Loss: Getting a Digital Scale

I’m not sure if it will make any difference in losing weight, but I purchased a digital scale. It measures the level of: body fat, water, and muscle. I found the body fat amount similar to what I get from web site calculators. The Digital Scale is a Conair Weight Watchers brand. The picture is […]

Health Clubs: Why I Hate Them

I have joined a number of health clubs over the years. Like anything that I’ve used out of necessity (at the given time), I’ve grown to hate these places. What’s my beef with them? I expect service and cleanliness, yet I realize I want too much. That’s a common theme with almost everything for me: […]

Weight Loss: The Holding Pattern – Part 2

There are many emotional issues behind the holding pattern regarding weight loss. I’ve certainly had my share of them. Why the weight comes back or more won’t come off: 1. Getting tired of it. The exercises become boring. The body is adjusting to the torture, um, exercise and after a while I need to find […]

Weight Loss: The Holding Pattern – Part I

Well, it starts to get real tough when the weight starts to sit at the same number for a few weeks. I am not LYING when I say I work out every day. So, it must be something I’m doing wrong. I did an initial weight loss profile on Jillian Michaels’ website, turns out I […]

Weight Loss: Another 2 lbs Bites the Dust!

This will probably be my last entry with regards to weight loss until next month (July). It sure is good to see some changes occurring. After another week, I’ve lost another 2 lbs, and I am feeling great. Warm weather is always the easiest time to begin shedding excess weight. The nice thing about my […]

Weight Loss – 2 pounds the hard way – con’t

It has been hard but after one week, 2 lbs finally came off. Frankly, I was shocked. I’ve never been able to get that much off in a week. It usually takes me one month to lose one pound. I’ve been determined to do something everyday. I make sure it is not strenuous or injurious. […]

Weight Loss – 2 pounds the hard way

I’m starting to think that I am going to have to put myself through some kind of Spartan workout (an exercise program for the actors of “300”, which explains all those hot bodies in that film – drool). I often read that eating 2000 calories per day, walking for 45 minutes around 3-4 times a […]
