    Success for Women over age 50?

    Congratulations Lizl61 and Mama E! It's good to hear Success Stories from the hormonally challenged. Things continue to evolve for me, but W30 remains my default way of eating - there's magic in following a practice for 30 days. Some say it takes longer than that to cement a new habit, but 30 days worked pretty well for me. Carry on, and check back.
  2. The singing lion is the best thing on facebook in some time - glad to see you appreciated it too. As always, I enjoy your blather and foaming at the mouth. Carry on, Meadowlily, I'm listening.
  3. I hope with my whole heart that she makes it. And because I always think of Lyme when there's a mystery illness, that's what I am thinking of. Around here, it's so prevalent the vets treat for it without a blood test.
  4. Why don't you bring her into the house? The thought of you sleeping on the garage floor again is painful to me.
  5. Those old doggies can surprise us. I'm so happy your dear old doggie has perked up. Go probiotics!
  6. Oh Meadowlily, so sorry to hear this sad news. My heart goes out to you. J
  7. Sending much love to you and your Maw. May the road rise to meet you.
  8. Just have to say one more time - I love reading your stuff, Meadowlily. There's always something that I need to hear - today it's the paragraph that begins... "stop editing." I know you follow your own advice because your spirit shines through your writing.
  9. Clear your head. You don't have to hop on a plane or go backpacking all across Europe to clear your head. Just remove yourself from those negative people and situations of the past. Forgive those who've wronged you but you don't have to ingratiate yourself to them again. Start making new memories. Having too many old negative memories of the past makes it more difficult to make new ones. Making new memories is better than being stuck in the past. And tomorrow has enough worries of its own. This is helpful to me right now, this very minute - because I've been taking a stroll down the part of my memory lane that is paved with razor wire and broken glass and it's time to get off it. Thanks, meadowlily.
  10. Walking around barefoot is the best - and walking barefoot on a beach is the best pedi ever, it grinds off hiker's calluses. Glad you enjoyed the spa-day. I never quite believe the hyperbole about deep cleansing and de-toxing and toning and purification of the skin, but I do love a good facial. Speaking of spa-language, I was about to re-order some lifting and firming moisturizer until I read that it contained "anti-gravitational peptides."
  11. Feels like spring here, and my window is open. I just took a long walk with the dog and decided, nah, no intermittent fasting experiments for me. No supper means I'll go to bed hungry, and that will provoke my inner wild child to throw a food tantrum. We all know what that feels like. IF could work for some people, but here's the truth for me - the longer I follow the practice of having 3 nourishing meals per day, the safer the wild child feels. Onward and upward, y'all..
  12. The woman on the podcast was fasting between 3 PM and 9 AM, I think. She was basically skipping dinner, but a 14 hour fast between dinner and breakfast is the minimum considered an IF and that is pretty easy to do - no food after 7 PM and breakfast at 9 AM.
  13. I'd sure miss you, Meadowlily. Your post on intermittent fasting was timely - I just listened to a podcast about it this morning and was thinking it sounded doable. But we all know it's just another diet and diets never end well. Weather any better? I wish you outdoor walking soon.
  14. I think somebody watched the squirrel documentary! I hope you're able to get back outside soon, Meadowlily. I don't do well in body or mind without a daily hike, and I think we have that in common. Winter is getting old.

    about a teaspoon of mustard and a 1/2 tsp of salt. Hope you like it.
