What’s the deal with chin masks???

Lately, wherever I go ( admittedly- just a few places, introvert, told you), I see this widely spread phenomenon: people thinking it is ok to wear their masks on their chins, instead of, well, you probably know by now the proper way to wear a mask, in order to try and minimize the risk of […]

Pre-workout snacks debate-seriously??

So, recently, since enhancing my workout routine, I changed my eating habits. Whereas before, I worked out having absolutely nothing to eat before, that is nothing for the 14-15 hours before training (intermittent fasting thing) except for my 1 cup of black coffee-no cream or sugar added- now I started eating a slice of whole […]

Getting through quarantine.

#1:getting creative in the kitchen. Ok- This is a lettuce wrap (!) with a beet-tahini spread .I had some leftover baked beets that were surprisingly not in demand (simply wash and bake the beets, halfway through you can take them out and peel them, (they peel so easily once baked ), put back in the […]

Mirror mirror on the wall- what mirror will make me look better than all?

My body changes: strength +weight gain

So in November 2019, I decided it’s high time to move my exercise game to the next level. Because I am a type-A stressed take no nonsense from myself kind of person, it had to be executed right away, preferably before 31/12/19 because, well, just because. I have an exhausting need to be different. that’s […]

Those calories don’t count (or do they??)

If there is justice in this world, then some calories really shouldn’t count. If they have to count, well then they should be on a big, huge, discount. I am talking about  food preparation -tasting calories: If you are frugal, (I hope you are, this is definitely the place for you if you are, or […]

I started checking my macros-fact based information on my diet!

So….for the last 51 years, I’ve been guessing my macros and calories, based on, well, nothing actually (??). maybe a hunch. I kept thinking: “oh, who needs to count calories or track macros anyway, I ‘m no elite athlete, ( frankly, not even close), I stopped participating in races ( introvert, told you, why are […]

Nap chat

Today I want to discuss something truly magnificent, that is definitely one of the holy grails of early retirement: The nap. You know, that short up to 50 minutes sleep in the middle of the day (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????!!!!!!????????!!-etc) Yes. So immoral and unproductive. Doesn’t get you closer to your goals . Doesn’t check anything off your […]
