I'll try and remember to get some ginger tomorrow and to use more turmeric.

This is how I made the vishniak: cover 6 lbs of deseeded sour cherries with 1.5 lbs of blond vegan sugar and 3/4 liter vodka. Keep covered in the closet for a month, squeeze the cherries and mix the vishniak before bottling it for aging.

I stopped my food log. It showed I don't eat enough vegetables and eat to large of portions and too kate in the evening

Yesterday was a 12 hour day at work, so no gym. That may be good in that my pelvis and hips left me with a minor limp.

Had to take a rest day. I've had a strange limp. Still, it's been a good month with a fair amount of effort.

Enjoying a day off from the gym. The month of cardio has left me with a lot of energy and a positive mentality.

What?! 49 pages. Outstanding! They are filled with quality info and not just random thoughts like in my journal too. I am going to take a guess that you have the most pages and info out of all of the training journals.
