Hmmm. Despite being busy yesterday and eating less food because of it, I gained a pound back. Everything was compliant unless there was a wrong ingredient in the ginger dressing or apple flax muffin and my COFFEE! I eat mostly diamonds! However, I was very sedentary yesterday. Long hours in the car and sitting in chairs here and there.

I will be shocked if I learn that black coffee puts weight on me. But I'll be watching to see.

Not that I watch closely, but when I don't eat enough, I gain weight - like the body starts holding onto everything due to being hungry...

I don't have anything wrong with 85% chocolate, I meant that I wouldn't have any coffee to trade for it...

My post to MHR inspired me to go for broke and head to the wilderness areas around here and go for a hike.  Take a hike, Adam!  I just *know* that's what everyone's thinking.  Hmmm?  Hmmmmm?  

The hike was around a lake with NOBODY around.  I saw these bushes that had these purple clusters of dense little flowers with all of these butterflies on them.  Blue ones and yellow ones...looked like the monarch type.  Had one flying around me and teasing me.  What a treat!

Then a hike up some hills to cliffs that had these barren-like trees that had...get this...a few vultures sitting on them.  Then I look up and there are like a hundred birds WAY up in the sky circling and floating on the wind.  The sun was shining.  What a beautiful experience.  Got a lot of Warrior frustration out of my system.  Talked myself to death.  Made all sorts of future plans for my life, etc.  Just love it when I do that.

Had a wonderful meal post-hike.  A big big salad, just like Elaine from Seinfeld, with romaine and a tiny bit of spinach, with a dressing made from tahini (a SF from my SWAMI), lime juice, garlic, olive oil (that extra virgin stuff from Sicily, just divine), a little Celtic sea salt, mixed the dressing, then added the salad and mixed it altogether.  Had a little diamond red wine (or a lot, can't remember ha! ).  Had some leftover tofu reheated in a 400 degree oven that I'd deep fried last night, coated in brown rice flour and deep fried in olive oil.  Dipped those in soy sauce with fresh minced garlic added.

Oh, boy oh boy...I'll tell ya folks...I feel like a million bucks.  Fresh air, exercise, talking out all that Warrior built up nonsense in my system, a great 100% compliant meal afterwards...words fail me at the moment as to how great I'm feeling.  Having a little 72% "Endangered Species" brand dark chocolate which has little bits of espresso beans in it.  Heaven, I tell ya...simply Heaven!

Nice... sounds like a lovely and productive excursion Adam.

Sounds amazing Adam! Takes me back to my childhood, and I'd like to have some of that today.

Adam; I never found out where you get your dandelion root tea.... missed it if you found my post and replied.

I feel so great about my diet, too, and am exercising a little more than I did before.


You guys are great!

I also think Tennis is way too stressful, yet Dr. D used to love it.  I love weights, too stressful for some Warriors.  Also love challenging hiking with hilly terrain.  That little Asian dude teaching Tai Chi was peeving me off big time. Guess it's each his own.


Dr. D said that most exercise is fine..as long as you do the stress reduction..like meditation and/or yoga..

Found it in bulk at our local Co-op.  Have no idea where they get it.  I'm not too fond of it, tho.  I add it to my burdock root tea as I like that better.

Ah too bad. We used to buy one 30 years ago that we just loved- it was satisfying like coffee, and then suddenly it was gone. They didn't make it anymore.

This is interesting because I took my Ma to the Co-op recently (she'd never been there before) and I showed her the bulk dandy root and she told me the same thing....that the stuff she used to buy was real dark and tasted similar to coffee.

One thing- it was called Roasted Dandelion Root. You could try roasting some and see how it goes?????

Another good alternative is Teecino

http://www.teecino.com/     The "original" flavor has orange peel in it but the other flavors don't..like my favo..mocha It's very good. And it's made from barley. But they said no gluten was in it.
You just make a pot of coffee every day for a couple of weeks and sub one scoop for teecino..next day 2 scoops of teecino..and so on till it's all teecino and you're off coffee without withdrawals.

I started in on some Methyl B12. It brought back a lot of sensation to my legs. I slept like hell though.

I always sleep a little better when I take B12. Try some melatonin, instead of sleeping pills for occassional sleeplessness.   I only take 1 mg.

Well I've yet to confirm but I'd be more surprised than I was when I found out I wasn't a nonnie if I happen to be anything else.  All of the basic/generalized questions show I'm a definite Warrior though.

I have the book but have been compliantly following the diabetes protocol for now.  I will begin reading it as soon as I'm comfortable enough to tackle a few new things.  

I take another A1c test this week.  Last results, I tested 5.9 which is just in the normal range.  A lower number this time will likely give me the boost I need to explore GTD and Swammi.

Hmm, it will be interesting. I'm sure swami will be great for you. It takes your diabetes into account. I'm really thrilled with my swami! And enjoying my added foods. Sad to see coffee go, but it seems to have a negative impact on my eczema, so it was one of those friends which are not really friends.


You guys are great!

Joe, my hubby's chocolate is 85% anyway. Too dark for you or most of the world.


My husband eats the 100%.  I like the 85.  If they had 95 I'd get it.

I do 1 cc every 5 or so days.  Definitely helps with the nerve pain.

Astaxanthan really helps with tendinitis and pain. Great for sun protection as well.

I pulled a muscle in my right bicep area; it's been on and off sore for over two months, but building the fence and having a lot of dogs that need a lot of brushing has taken it's toll on me. Would this be a good choice do you think?

Does anyone know where I can find out if elk meat is an avoid for my Warrior hubby? I assumed it would be since venison is an avoid, but he didn't seem to have a reaction to it...  He's also been okay with buffalo meat.
Any help would be appreciated! I'm a newbie and couldn't find anything when I did a search on elk.
Thanks much,
Dawn
