Hey offense74!

You got that right. Actually I've been off pork and beef for a couple of years now. That had a bit to do with me being a butcher a number of years ago. I knew first hand what was being fed to people and theway it was "packaged" That was enough for me!! Not to mention the some of the "nutcakes" I worked with.

i thinks it's all about having the fortitude to make a change once you have all the information.

Knowledge is not power until it instills action......

I agree. I have always said that knowledge isnt only power, it is obligation.

Absolutely. As moral an obligation as you can get.

Unfortunately knowledge can also lead to self righteousness especially when like they say, a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. I'm still upset at what the "church" has done to indigenous peoples around the world :evil:

But that's another story......

thanks SeaSiren.
I was smiling to myself when reading your posts about your new equip. I was the same way when I got my smith machine complete with adjustable pullies :lol:
having the equipment in the house leaves no excuses. Although I'm still able to come up with them :shock:
But you guys are inspiring. I'm putting my schedule together and starting on next Monday.

It's crazy, I actually love doing it. I love the natural high it gives , I love the way my body feels and yet this is going to be a monumental struggle!!!! Christmas is such a terrible time for me. I know damn well, my state reflects what i'm putting in my mouth but I'm finally taking the time to make myself some half-decent meals. It also helps when I have my kids, as i make sure they are well exercised and well fed. they're coming up this w/e so it's a perfect start to going back to the new and improved me.
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: It's time.........

We expect to read posts of sore muscles on Tuesday! :wink:

I've been fighting a sinus infection AND strep throat. After 10 days of feeling sub-human, today is the first day I've felt human. Early to bed tonight & Friday night & then, Saturday I hit the workout area with no expectations other than I will do something!

Thanks for calling me on it CrispyQ!!

Sorry to hear about your down-time :( That's brutal.
It's a little late now but I always find that if I take three zinc citrate tablets with Vit C when I first get that little itch, tickle, cough for two sometimes three days it greatly minimizes the cold/flu or makes it go away all together.


Take care......

I switched to a veg. diet because of the spiritual path that I have been on but perhaps more on that later.



:) Welcome Pheonix... being one who is also consciously walking a spiritual path I would enjoy to hear more about this. I know from my own personal experience that going veg*n improved my awareness greatly.

Ohh....the stories I could tell Molly......I worked in a meat plant not a store but at least it wasn't an abbattoire (where the murdering is done...).

I don't know if you ever watched that sci-fi series on years ago "V" where the aliens came to earth to harvest us but I wonder how we would react to something like that since we don't see any problem doing it to other species that share our planet with us?

That's excellent Nakeddragon... I'll (pm) you on that one....Like veganism, spirituality, awareness, heightened consciousness, enlightenment, whatever term you use, there is a movement and one of these days it will approach critical mass. It can't help but not. There is truly a peaceful (re) evolution going on out there and for the earth's sake it can't be fast enough......




Peace.....
