Why did I let go of my motorcycle dream?

3 years ago I bought myself this beautiful motorcycle as an early retirement gift. I know, flashy, and not exactly frugal. but I reasoned myself that the costs of maintaining a 2-wheel drive are considerably lower than those of a 4-wheel drive. That, apparently- was only half true. Apparently, my small 125 Honda PCX insurance …

No pressure!!!

I’m not a gentle lady. That is actually an understatement. I don’t go to gyms and lift heavy weights because I learned that at the ripe ageof53.5 +after having spent almost 30years in a mostly sedentary job- my back isn’t thankful after a weight session. My exercise routine consists of swimming 43*50 meters in the …

What do you do while you’re eating?

I was watching 2 youtube channels (health and workout, vegan cooking, and profound stuff like that) and came across a few uploads of them filming themselves eating (you know, those “what I eat in a day” episodes. (by the way- personally, I find it hard to believe that’s the actual way those people on youtube …

“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 water …

Never get bored with salads!

There’s this stigma running around for thousands of years, tying between salads and dieting women. “oh me? I’ll have the salad!” (then most movies-books- TV series depict said woman looking sadly at her plate and -if given the opportunity- helping herself to her companion’s plate.) We all understand the “subtle ” subtext: Salad is not …

Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying?

Before I start- you need to know I have no shares in Fitbit- or in any other fitness devices for that matter, and neither do I get anything for free from any store -online or otherwise. I also do not review anything for a living-nor am I a tech whiz (oh-so far from it, almost …

Getting to know your Bran new friend.

Bran?? you kidding me? Isn’t that for, like, 70+-year-old people? in a small box next to prunes? and multivitamin pills? Well- if that is the case, then it is one more example as to why you do get wiser as you get older. (more mature, OK). Because- the fact is that bran is just about …

Yummy healthy post workout breakfast!!

Autumn is here, finally. Love this short, sweet season. I guess everybody does, I mean what’s not to like about fair weather, falling leaves, the promise of a cozy winter (things always look better when expecting them- also see- trips abroad: a dream before- many times a disaster during, a dream in retrospect. that’s the …

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 think 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 …
