Yippee! We made it to Day 10 in Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing)! (Actually, today is Day 11, but don’t tell anyone…)

It is excruciatingly hot in my corner of Quebec, or at least it is by Canadian standards : 31 C is OTT for us Canucks. Doesn’t hold a candle to Erbil, Iraq, though. That’s where my friend (and author) Carolyn Theriault is. She’s a sucker for punishment is Carolyn. Continue reading

Hot? Getchya Some Gazpacho (Day 9)

FB thumbs up iconIn the last 10 days, we’ve had rain, rain, SNOW, freezing cold, and everything in between.

But now that Facebook has turned around (in this statement), so has the weather.

Today (or rather yesterday, because I fell asleep at the keyboard when I was about to post this last night, and then decided to go to bed instead) was hot, hot, hot, and tomorrow is supposed to be sweltering, by Canadian standards anyway (and yes, it’s tomorrow already and it’s a humid scorcher).

Facebook, food & feminism (Days 5, 6, 7 & 8)

Margaret Mead small groupThis week’s three “F” words!

Yes, I have continued on Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing, even while I was madly blogging against big bad corporate Facebook and its misogynist treatment of women — fighting  the good feminist fight as it were.

I wrote five posts which so far have a combined viewership of 6,000+ (2,700 on one day alone in the heat of the battle!). Not bad for my little upstart blog. Now things will return to normal (i.e. quiet) of course. Anyway, here are the five posts; #3 is my personal fave: Continue reading

Ready for the rain…and snow, which came this afternoon

Woe is me! Life gets in the way of my best laid plans…

Today is Day 4 of Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing, and  I completely missed blogging about Day 3 because I was too busy blogging about being blocked on Facebook (Trigger warning). So, here goes with Days 3 & 4 together now!

It’s STILL raining,  pouring in fact, and freezing cold. It’s been like this for… well, since we started this 10 Day Thing. The only thing to do about the weather is go with it. In #PINK of course. Continue reading

Lunch – could have two instead of just the one…

Oops!

Today is Day 2 of Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing, and it’s almost Day 3 already!

(Someone organized would have done all the posts in advanced and scheduled them. But no, not me. Flying by the seat of my pants as usual :-))

It’s  still raining, and I’m still busy. Not much news, other than I have been unblocked at Facebook, and will soon blog about the block.)  Meanwhile, back to the 10-Day Thing… Continue reading

Last 10 days in May fabulous food list

Grapefruit strawberry shakeI love things that are fast, easy, no mess, no fuss, tasty, and healthy. So I know I’m going to love the next 10 days. Yummy!

I’m really looking forward to being super conscious about my body and how it feels, as well as experimenting with a different way of preparing and eating my favourite foods (mostly fruit & veg).

 
Besides the things I said I would and would not do in Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing, I will also: Continue reading
