Day 36-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary- Covid Tachycardia and More Weight Loss

Went down .2 of a pound and thrilled! My tachycardia is still here, but it seems to be lessening since I removed the NyQuil and CoQ10. I will add back the Ubiquinol to see if that wasn’t the culprit once my heart rate goes back to normal.

Been doing a lot of rebounding (albeit gently) on the leapsandrebounds.com rebounder (10% off with purchasing using code MISSMAISIE10). I also started a squat challenge. Getting my cardio done frequently with the rebounder helps my autoimmune problems, gets my FitBit steps in, and keeps me sane… it also lowers my heart rate.

Am in a reels making brush up course, so I made this while rebounding… I didn’t try very hard, but it’s a start LOL

Day 34-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary- Covid Recovery Mode & What I’ve Learned From a Month of New Eating

Up .2 of a pound this morning, but I am in covid recovery and this doesn’t even bother me. In the past, it might have sent me into a downward spiral, but no more.

This new eating program has changed so much about how gentle I am with myself and perceptions about weight loss- much in the same way L’BRI skincare changed my ideas about getting older and aging skin.


👉🏻👉🏻linktr.ee/missmaisieandme for to get your youth on👈🏻👈🏻👈🏻👈🏻


I feel very blessed to have both of these programs in my life now. I am SO grateful, beyond words!!

That being said, my heart rate is now 78 today- Covid has done some ugly things with my heart and tachycardia during my 3 bouts. It’s frustrating, but the only solution I have is to do more rebounding on my Leaps & Rebounds mini-trampoline. Cardio helps loads with reducing the resting heart rate and I try to get on EVERY HOUR for a few minutes. I use my FitBit to monitor my vitals and steps. 12k of steps is always my goal (for now). Lately, I have been barely getting 9k, so this must change.

If you want to get a rebounder from leapsandrebounds.com I have a lifetime 10 percent discount MISSMAISIE10 you can use. This company SAVED MY LIFE after my pulmonary embolism and previous Covid bouts and I cannot thank them enough.

OMGOSH, WATCH THIS!! MAISIE IS IN THEIR VIDEO!

Day 21-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary- HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE (even if Betty White passed away)

Ooooh- my friend came by to see me for the first time since this diet began and said I look A TON THINNER. I snapped a pic before my shower and I am amazed at how tight the skin is on my body and how my belly fat is just *POOF* gone!

I am feeling this weight loss thing. I feel like I am getting BACK TO ME again…

tonight’s anthem kicks off my evening-

Cooking Hoppin’ John (black-eyed peas and rice), collard greens, cornbread tonight for NYE. Stayed on plan all day and am ok with this. I don’t plan on drinking more than a toast of bubbly at midnight, so I am good.

hoppin john, cornbread, collard greens for New Year’s good luck!



I was horrified to discover Betty White didn’t even make it to her own 100th birthday. This must be the Harbinger of the Apocalypse if there ever was one. So sad. This doesn’t bode well for 2022.

More pics of our evening- I didn’t drink. It was a nice, chill night with fam. Wore makeup for the first time in eons.

Almost another full pound GONE- POOF!
Lowest weight since starting 19 days ago AND I SURVIVED THE HOLIDAY FOOD BINGE!

(No shame in this game ^^)


The countdown to year 53 of my life begins… same age as JLo, but not yet as fit. I am still super pleased with my progress!!

Between my L’BRI skincare and this weight loss program I WILL BE A HOT MAMA BY MY 53RD BIRTHDAY IN FEBRUARY! The weight (knock wood) is just melting off.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART (insert drumroll)…

MY RESTING HEART RATE IS 65!! That is down from over 70 (and 78 a month prior)!! I suffer from tachycardia, high blood pressure, and a host of autoimmune issues and blood clotting issues.
Staying alive is my ultimate goal.

I am noticing a huge decline in belly fat on this diet, even though I haven’t yet done more than rebounding for exercise.

Cravings simply DO NOT EXIST. I eat too often for hunger. This is like magic- the easiest diet I’ve ever been on!

Day 18-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary-DOWN ANOTHER POUND!!

Woke up another pound gone… I have never, ever NOT gained weight during the holiday season! I.LOVE.THIS.PROGRAM.

I will be 53 in February and I am SO happy in my own skin now, thanks to L’BRI.
I marvel over how I am able to eat so much and so often and still drop weight.
Yes, I use the rebounder and fitbit… no, I haven’t yet done my yoga nor weights- I still have to add those in, but enjoying the peace and quiet of the holiday season.

Updates on the Last Few Years (Condensed Version w/Links & Photos)

I’ve utterly ignored this blog for YEARS… opting instead for the ease of Instagram and staying on my FB pages and doing Influencer Things (which, I gotta say, is more work than it appears to be and kinda mind-numbing).

If you want quick look-sees on what we’ve been up to go to:

instagram.com/missmaisiebabyfashionista

For the longer list, see below:

1. had a hysterectomy and bilateral pulmonary embolisms in 2018



2. Started homeschooling Maisie with Oakmeadow.com

in 2019 and we continued during the Pandemic (and now



3. Survived 2 bouts of Covid-19


4. Bought a RV and quarantined and farmed at my dad’s after our 1st Covid bout- raised sheep and chickens in 2020.




5. Our 3 elderly Newfoundland dogs, Berry, Scucca, and Tiberius died in 2020 and 2021… Berry and Scucca died within 2 weeks of each other in June 2021 (ages 13 and 10)- Ti died on Halloween 2019 at age 8.5.

6. Moved into a smaller house in town in 2020 (originally, to quarantine in- now I just love it).



7. Adopted a kitten named Cake in 2020

8. Bought a new black 2 door hardtop Mini Cooper that I affectionately call “Roger”

9. Accidentally sampled an all natural skincare line on my 52nd birthday and somehow became an executive manager for this company after it made my face Benjamin Button back in time and managed my autoimmune skin.

It’s called L’BRI… do you even L’BRI, brah? Nobody’s heard of it, really, but it WORKED for me. I had no experience with this type of sales before… but I feel like the good faerie of skincare now. Life-changing- even if I don’t fall into the direct sales stereotype AT ALL.

10. Took up a market stall at a well-known local farmer’s market and began doing in-person readings with my long time friend and business partner, Gidget, over the summer called The Rowan and the Oak.


I know I rarely talk about my ‘real work’ since having Maisie- I took a few years off- but I have been a psychic and medium (large now, thanks to the Pandemic) for over 30 years. My other biz page is Psychic Jess Anderson.

11. Adopted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi pup named Rowan Magnus the Magnificent. He is a mischievous little Cancerian with a moon in Aquarius and lots of Leo.

12. Binged “Vikings” on Netflix.com and spent the entire winter 2020-21 sewing/designing/embroidering Viking and Medieval inspired wool and linen ‘Plague-wear” for the entire family (coz I am nerdy like that).

13. Maisie raised money and made her own monarch butterfly sanctuary in 2019



plus a MYRIAD OF OTHER THINGS too numerous to include here…

I’m back again and going to be blogging like a fiend, friends.
