Walk the talk.

So, a few months ago my partner retired (early) and joined my blissful early retirement. Blissful until he joined. I mean. I’ve heard of couples enjoying every minute of their mutual retirement, I’ve read their stories (albeit not many of them, sorry- all that perfect sticky theme gets on my nerves). “we travel all the …

Park farther, get fitter.

My mother is 78, and hates exercising. At least she is consistent- she never liked working out. even as a teen she did everything in her power to avoid it, and sees no need to change her ways now. She is also a smoker, started at 16, and kept going for 62 years. still enjoys …

My “weird” sleeping hours.

*I remind you, yet again, that I am no sleep specialist-MD-scientist or anything of the sort. an early retired lawyer who happens to be a health enthusiast. Actually- that’s not true- I didn’t “happen to become a health enthusiast”. I chose it, and set it as a personal goal because I believe that maintaining good …

My tips for stress-less mornings!

Since early retirement, I’ve perfected my morning routine to nearly 100% success. Such a pity I didn’t have those tips when I actually needed them– meaning while I was working+ juggling 3 kids +house maintenance. Sure- I always used the “to-do list” method- which is great, but with all due respect (and I do have …

My sudden FITBIT popularity. (???)

I already told you I own a Fitbit Inspire 2 watch, and I use it to track my workouts and get much needed moral support and slacking tracking. Here is link to my previous post: Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying? I also told you a long time ago that I am a class A …

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 tahini trick .

Tahini is the ultimate vegan staple. Why? because it is super nutritious, wholesome, a great source of copper (essential for iron absorption) and fiber (2 grams in 1 tbsp) and protein too (3 grams in 1 tbsp!), tasty and versatile: tahini can go savory and go sweet just as well. *unless you are allergic to …

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 …
