Hey MiniForklift,
Thanks for posting a message on my thread, gave me a kick up the bum to update it,
due to a busy work schedule i tend to just write the whole weeks worth of workouts up on my day off.

I noticed you went away for the weekend, how was it?

Keep up the good work, your workouts always look impressive.

Matt

Man, you've got a really detailed journal!

I've gotta follow your lead in some of those ways.

Have a great week of training. Hit it hard!

Glad you had a good ol time training with your buddy. Those are fun times, training with friends.

Thanks, hoping to get some good training in this weekend after a rubbish day yesterday.

A couple of guys came into the shop, I spent about 10mins talking to them and then they left really suddenly. I checked over by where they were hanging out as I thought they might have stolen some stock. It was about an hour or so later when I realised they had stolen my phone which I had on the back counter. Lost quite a few photos of my little girls, some I had taken just that morning of my eldest daughter at her school swimming lesson.

I don't really care about the phone, it's all the stuff that was on it like the photos and some videos of the girls when they were younger :(

Sorry to hear about the phone mate. There are some real scumbags out there!
Anything I say is going to sound a bit lame and predictable but I hope you manage to get it back. Did you manage to get any of the photos backed up to pc . If you had iPhone did you have it set up for the cloud with backups automatically backed up to this?

Came up with this recipe yesterday afternoon, thought it turned out pretty good. The chili and spices gave it a bit of a kick :oops:

JIM'S WINTER WARMER (serves two)

INGREDIENTS

4 x large field mushrooms
1/2 an onion
1 x tin chickpeas
400ml coconut milk
2 x tbsp coconut oil
250g firm tofu
2 x cloves chopped garlic
2 x bay leaves
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/4 tsp ocean/sea salt
1 x red chili
Palmful of fresh baby spinach

COOKING

Melt a tablespoon of coconut oil, add in a clove of chopped garlic and stir fry the tofu until yellow and crispy. Once cooked, remove and put aside.

Add the second tablespoon of coconut oil and throw in the the second clove of chopped garlic along with the mushrooms and finely sliced onion. Stir through and cook on a reasonably high heat for a couple of minutes. Next, throw in the chickpeas and your spices (the bay leaves, cumin and tumeric) and cover the pan while you cut the red chili; slice in half, remove the seeds and then finely dice. Once done you can throw that in the pan and add in the coconut milk, salt and the tofu that was fried up earlier.

Re-cover your pan, turn down the heat and leave it to cook through for about 5-10mins.

Mix in the baby spinach just before serving and you'll have a beautiful healthy dish that will fill and warm you up.

They have definately died off a little but every now and then we still get a reminder that we live in earthquake central. Some people get really stressed over them, however I refuse to be confined or defined by them.

That second one was a rock n roller, probably because the depth was shallow.

Thanks Doug. Nah, I'm a bit old school when it comes to phones. I don't like Apple stuff, have been a loyal Nokia user for years. Didn't have anything backed up, although I did have a young girl text a couple of my friends on Sunday night saying that she had found my SIM card lying on the floor outside the mall; just waiting for her to drop it back to me. That will save a lot of hassle and time not having to retype everybody's number into the new phone!

Saw that photo this morning on Facebook promoting World Vegetarian week, thought it was cool 8)

I've enjoyed a few veggie quotes from Einstein before, but was he actually vegetarian? lol I've never even thought about that.

Not for all of his life, but it seems that for a good portion of it he was. Here are a couple of other quotes by Einstein...

"It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind."

"Vegetarian food leaves a deep impression on our nature. If the whole world adopts vegetarianism, it can change the destiny of humankind."
