Autumn. cinnamon.

It is supposedly autumn here. It’s just so hot it’s quite idiotic to be celebrating autumn. Because autumn-for me- is a celebration. I can’t stand the heat, the blinding sun, the fatigue and weariness that go hand in hand (in my case?) with this heat. Sure- the abundance of fruit and quick hot shower water …

Instead of Botox?(part 1).

So I turned 53 this week, and I thought this is a great time to share my encounter with the ultimate fountain of youth- Botox .

Why I discontinued the raw journey.

First- I want to say that this is MY experience- and there is a good chance that you won’t/don’t feel the same -and that’s great- because if everybody thought and acted the same- I believe it would be quite boring. Then why write this in the first place? Because I think since I am a …

The story we tell ourselves.

Yesterday I went for my usual run, in my usual trail, only to realize the trail was blocked due to constructions work. I admit- My first instinct was to head back home and do some bands and free weights workout. I know what I sound like. But that’s the truth Then I looked my sneakers …

53 and writing a diary???

Well, yes. I mean- not exactly- I will turn 53 in 2 months , so actually it’s 52.10 and writing in my diary- on a daily basis. Whatever for? For my peace of mind, that’s what for. It started out as an innocent journal of daily sleep+ workouts+ spendings , and after a few days …

“Go get a cold shower!”

I already told you a long time ago, that come spring, I brace myself and start showering with cold water. Now- hold the clapping- summers are H O T where I live, spring is almost non existent -sadly- and we do have solar panels on our roof, meaning from april-november we don’t use the electric …
