I may purchase a couple of gallons (so I can get free shipping) of these 1 gallon jugs of Almond Oil:

My only concern would be it going rancid before you use it all up. I prefer to buy small quantities and use it up quickly.

Adam, why has it taken you so long to do this when your mom has been doing this for quite some time? Just curious.

Really? That is too bad, because Aloe is really very good for the skin (and sunburn). And of course I mean the natural thing, not from a bottle or anything. If you take the skin off the leaf you are left with a jelly-like substance (very slippery) and I just rub that on any dry spot or eczema I may have.

Maybe the Aloe from Aruba would be better for you? They say it's the best in the world.

I don't know why either, but I have the plants - you can't have just one...  Everyone else I know uses it successfully - except my DD and I...

I hear ya.  I backed out of my 1 gallon order and decided to think about it.  I know where to get the small bottles here locally.  It's on my shopping list.

Laziness, pure and simple.  Which also relates to kicking my butt in gear to do the necessary preparation of meals ahead of time.  I work full-time, no help from my wife (I'm the better cook, so not a big deal), the Great Battle For Kitchen Time, etc. etc.  But, I recently decided to do this for a couple of reasons 1) I need to lose my weight.  I had this goal at the beginning of the year and faltered.  I have a flat right foot (left one is arched), and this relates to 2) I want to be able to walk for 30-40 min. without my right ankle hurting.  I do stretching before I walk and that helps. 3) I wanna live to 100.

Ha!  Don't remind me...lately my size 40's have been sagging and I have to pull the belt in another notch before going for walks!  I would love to put on some size 34's one day or *gasp* 32's.  That would be 10 inches smaller than my lifetime max of size 42 waist.

This is not just a diet, but such an amazing way to Eat and Live!

Are you using Tamari instead of plain soy sauce?  Soy sauce usually has wheat and it is not naturally brewed.  I love my Tofu and tempeh marinated in Tamari and then heated up in a bit of ghee!! Yummy!

Dr. D says I can use Soy Sauce.  I have wheat free Tamari but I don't care for it.  Also, I lost 2 lbs this week eating wheat.  The thing is I think it might be causing my burping and belching, which is actually kinda enjoyable sometimes.    A complement in Japan, I hear, is to burp after a meal.  The only problem is that it annoys some people because it comes out really loud sometimes.  Kinda like Barney from The Simpsons.  

Someone mentioned I should switch to spelt to lose weight faster.  I lost 2 pounds in a week, do I really need spelt to lose weight faster?  I don't think so.  I don't suffer from food allergies, so I don't see that as a problem either.  So, I'm keeping my wheat for a while, unless some problem crops up or I just "have to" lose that last pesky 10 pounds or something. But, I'm not planning on being a runway model, so I'm good.  







BRAAAAAAAAP!!!

Ok, so, I'm back from shopping and boy did I load up on the Asian greens.  I wrote the names of everything down.  I got two kinds of bok choi, one is small, like a baby variety, and the other longer.  Both are a light green color, not that white stalk and dark green leaf common variety.  I got Yu Choi (a favorite of mine) and two new things (to me), Gailan and Sherlihon.  And here's the kicker...each bag of Asian greens cost only 99 cents!!  I never noticed the price before, but looked at the receipt and couldn't believe my eyes!     I got organic firm tofu with Asian characters all over it.  Got green onions, ginger, garlic, and a new bottle of Almond Oil.  If it is rancid, I guess it tastes funny?  Oh oh oh!  I also got that Celtic Sea Salt that PepTwist mentioned.  That stuff is awesome!  Took my cheap old sea salt and chucked it.  Will be making some good cookin' in the next few minutes.  Can't wait!

This morning's weight: 228

Today is cooking day.  I started off by making flax/spelt crackers.  Here's my recipe:

Flax/Spelt Crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine:
  1 cup ground flax
I buy whole dark brown flax seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder.  I keep adding to a 1 cup measuring cup sitting in a large bowl until it is full.  Empty cup into bowl.  Then add to bowl:
  1 cup whole grain spelt flour
  1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
These days (on Edna's recommendation) I'm using Celtic Sea Salt.
Mix these dry ingredients thoroughly.  What I like to do is put it in my Cuisinart and spin it and shake it around for a minute.  Then I add to the Cuisinart:
  2 tablespoons Ghee
Mix this thoroughly with the dry ingredients in the Cuisinart.  Put contents of Cuisinart into large bowl.
Add to bowl:
  1/2 cup of water
Mix with a rubber spatula and form into a ball of dough.
On a large flat, clean surface, sprinkle liberally with spelt flour.  Coat outside of ball of dough with spelt flour.  Coat a rolling pin with spelt flour.  Carefully roll out dough until fairly thin, but not too thin.  Use your own judgment as to how thin you want your crackers.  Using a pizza cutter, cut into small squares.  Using a spatula, scoop up a couple of crackers, and carefully place onto baking sheet(s) and place into the oven.  Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.  I like to wait until a little smoke comes out of the oven when I open the oven door (seriously).  This gives the cracker a nice slightly burnt taste that I like.  If you want a softer, milder tasting cracker, then only bake for about 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool on top of stove for about 5-10 minutes.  Put crackers in airtight container.  They keep well for about a week.  I make them every weekend.  I love these with my canned salmon, farmers cheese, or some compliant pesto.

you could roll out on parchment paper....transport whole to tray....
cut up with pizza roll in squares or diagonals, and stick in the oven....
when done and cooled simply cut away the pieces with your hands

An interesting idea, Lola, thanks.

I've been spending nearly all morning doing laundry and cooking.  All while my wife is at church.  

Anyway, cooked up lots of lentils and basmati rice.  And cooked up lots of Asian Greens and so have many little glass containers in the freezer right now.  My A+ Warrior daughter, Heather, came by to do laundry and we had a nice talk. She tried some of my food, but I can tell she's not too fond of it.  She works at Arby's and has a really pour diet and sleeping schedule.  But, heck, she's 19, she's got a ways to go yet.  She's young.  But, I can tell she's dragging a bit.  Her mom came home around noon, and off the two went to Wal-Mart and probably out to eat.  Gag!  

I finally got to sit down and try some of my lentils&rice and greens.  But.......I was SO STRESSED from all the cooking and laundry.....I thought to myself....."Self, why don't you relax with a glass of Red Wine?"  So, that's just what I did.  WOW!  I haven't had red wine in ages, and do I FEEL GREAT!  Maybe a little TOO GOOD, .     I think red wine with my noon meals on Sat and Sun is just what the doctor ordered.  I work M-F in another town, and eat at my desk at work, so I can't really do the red wine, plus it makes me kinda sleepy, so I pass on it during the week.  But, hey, the weekend is for livin', so here I go.

Lunch was superb and I feel so good and healthy.  A hat tip to the good doctor.  Bless you Dr. D, wherever you are.

Hey, my post count finally surpassed my age. I guess that's a good thing.

OK, folks, I got my act together this weekend and this evening, and now have my day completely, and I mean COMPLETELY mapped out for tomorrow.  I will be going to the Rec Center in the morning for a workout, something I've not done in a long long time.  I can walk in, show my id, pay 5 bucks, and have access to weights, Olympic sized pool, walking track, the works.  

I plan on doing light circuit training for about 45 minutes, stretching before and after. Then, to stretch out my body further, a nice swim afterwards just might hit the spot.  I will not overdo it, if I'm feeling stressed or exhausted, I'll call it a day and hit the showers.  I have 2 hours from 7am to 9am to do this, because my workday doesn't start until 9am.  

But, I know I will be RAVENOUS afterwards and all day long.  As I remember from days gone by when I used to workout in the morning, about an hour afterwards, I always become starving, and starve all day long.  Therefore, I have planned a grand lineup of Warrior Genotype foods for the purpose of calming the beast within.  So, without further ado, here 'tis:

5:30 Get Up, Strawberries, Coffee, Sit, Drink, Wake Up
5:50 Shower, Dress, Pack Food Bag
6:30 Leave
7:00 Bring into Rec: Lemon&Water, Workout Bag
     Workout: Stretch, Weights, Stretch, Swim
     During workout: Lemon&Water, Post-Workout: Peach
9:00 Goto Work
9:30 Lemon Juice, Salmon & Flax Crackers, Tofu, Bok choi, Supp's
10:30 Green Tea
11:30 Strawberries, Walk (a light walk, maybe 20 minutes)
12:00 Lentils/Rice, Tofu, Greens
2:00 Black Tea
3:00 Strawberries, Walnuts, Flax bread
5:00 Go Home
5:30 Cook more tofu and greens
6:00 Eat some, freeze some
8:00 Yogurt, burdock root tea

I know it looks crazy to barely have anything in the morning before the workout.  I don't think it wise to eat anything too solid before a workout.  I've done that before and it was always a bad idea.  

I plan on eventually doing this Mon-Wed-Fri with other days as rest days.  Maybe little walks on Tues & Thur.  I may only do this workout tomorrow and let that be it for the week, just to get used to weights again.  But, I will not be lifting heavy, only very light just to keep my muscles firm.

So, there we are folks.  Feel free to hack away at my plans.

I just started drinking a small glass 3-4 times a week, usually in the evening, but sometimes at lunch on weekend, depending on what I'm doing, etc...

The only thought I had about your schedule is that I've heard that one should eat protein right after the workout to aid the rebuilding of the body, but don't know if that is "one-size fits all" thinking or ???.  I also don't know if it applies more to Builders than Toners???  It sounds like a great plan, though.

Remember that when you start doing weights, you will replace fat for muscle and muscle is heavier then fat, so you might gain weight in the beginning (or not loose any). Not saying it will happen, just saying it can happen, and if it does don't be alarmed.

I've been told that wine in the evening is not a good idea, that it will interfere with sleep.  So, I have avoided it altogether.  I got a solid 5 1/2 hours sleep last night and lingered in bed (not recommended by Dr. D) for two more hours for a total of 7 1/2 hours.  Anyway, I'm thinking of having a glass on Sat and Sun for lunch from now on.

I've been in the bodybuilding world before, and they always preached having some kind of shake with highly assimilated carbs in it immediately after.  And, then some protein about an hour later after the body has calmed down.  That is one theory, another is to have a shake with whey protein in it almost immediately post-workout.  I'm going with nothing except fruit post-workout because my workout is, by bodybuilding standards, a "sissy" workout.  It would really be considered just a warmup and not really a hard workout most guys in the gym would do.  You'll notice I'm having my salmon one hour post-workout to get my protein.  I may do this routine again on Thurs, as my muscles may need a couple of days to rest.

This would probably happen if I worked out too heavy and then upped my protein intake.  If I'm still eating the same tofu and greens that Dr. D says I can have as much as I want, I would think I'd lose weight not gain as I'm burning more calories.  I was thinking about the possibility of weight gain with the weights last night, but concluded that it should only tone my muscles not break them down which is the result of heavy weights.  But, I know what you mean, if I see the scale start to climb, I will probably freak out.

Workout was AWESOME!!  

Lots of calm stretching and deep breathing in the karate room with most of the lights out.  Very relaxing.  Very light weights and stretching between exercises.  More stretching and walked a 1/2 mile.  Skipped the swimming as I was feeling "done".  Showered, dressed, and felt GREAT!  Actually ran into a co-worker and talked for 5 minutes.  The place was almost deserted, so that was wonderful.     Mornings are best at the Rec, any other time and it's packed and I HATE THAT!  

So far, after the workout, I've only had Strawberries, Walnuts, Flax Bread, waited a while and now having some Green Tea.  I feel really good.  Not hungry and actually would love to take another walk right now.  It's amazing.

Packed gym = raised cortisol levels for me.  Rarely went years ago, and never had an enjoyable time.  My brother, I assume he's an O, would be so pumped up after a workout.  All the way back home he'd talk 100 mph about how wonderful it was to work out.  I'd get off the treadmill unbelievably dizzy, I'd sleep while he was yapping, and feel rotten the rest of the evening.  We couldn't understand each other when it came to exercise.

Well, to be honest, about an hour after my GYM IS SO AWESOME!!!!! post, I felt a tiny heart palpitation.  So...I'm not so sure about it now.  The idea of muscle toning sounds good, but the sudden change in my morning routine I think was a bit of a shock to my system.  I think the best change to my morning routine would simply be to chuck the egg/toast for a while and go with soy/greens and see where that leads me.  I'm still not getting enough green stuff and that is crucial if I want to 'reboot my system'.  Good thing the whole experience only cost me 5 bucks.  I think I'll go back to nice outdoor walks for a while.  They are much more in tune with my mind/body/spirit.

Well, I'm fairly certain my ancestors were from Western Europe.  We go back to Scarboroughs in Scotland, also have UpChurch, Welsh, and Spencer surnames on my mom's side, and my last name is an Italian name.  My personality test came out as ISTJ.  I'm the quiet, logical, practical type.

OK, so what the heck is A1 vs. A2 sub type for blood type A?
