Today's main event was the first day teaching my fall journalism class. Though school started on Monday, electives did not start until today. Before and after class were lots of little events that related to the Blood Type Diet.
I walked into the kitchen this morning and on impulse decided to make pancakes. A friend had given me a wonderful multi grain recipe several years ago. I adjusted it for Os and As, and my kids said they were the best pancakes I've ever made. I posted the recipe on RECIbase. (Oat, spelt & flax pancakes)
Before my breakfast I went for a run. My son advised me not to do weight work on the same muscles two days in a row. I decided that today I would do a light run in the morning and do the machines at the gym related to shoulders and arms this afternoon. Tomorrow I will to the ab and leg machines and go for a light swim. If it gives you an idea of my upper body strength, I have never done a chin up. There is a machine that uses a hydraulic lift to aid you in chin ups and dips. I had to set it to support more than half my body weight in order to be able to do just five. If I joined this gym I wonder how long would it be before I could do a real chin up.
My son will be living in an apartment when he goes back to college. His roommate is bringing the TV and DVD. My son is equipping the kitchen. He has learned several new cooking skills this summer, but now that his return to school is drawing close, he is asking lots of questions. Earlier in the week I showed him how to grill onions. Tonight he wanted to learn to cook ground meat. We were having spaghetti, which in our family means one pan of ground beef and one pan of ground turkey. He and I got out two skillets and worked side by side. I cooked the turkey, and he cooked the beef. I wonder what his roommate's blood type is.
