do you find yourself trained to the heat of hot yoga from fire fighting? just curious. I know when ive done hot yoga in the past I liked it but I always felt a little dehydrated afterwards.

Well, I don't really think its so much that I'm acclimated, but more that I know I've been in a lot more heat while still able to function.

Had a really eventful past couple of days. LOTS of walking :lol: Not as much eating as I would have liked. My wife and I went to Alexandria, VA, on Thursday, to visit the George Washington Masonic Memorial. It was awesome! Then we walked 12 blocks from our hotel to a really great Thai restaurant called Mai Thai. On our way back we saw a bagpipe & drum corps performing in front of city hall. When they were finished, we found an Irish pub called Pat Troy's and stopped in. Not 5 minutes later, the aforementioned bagpipe group arrived and took the stage. It was so cool! Just a few people in the bar, so it was like our own private concert. If you love bagpipes as much as I do, then you know how great this was. On Friday we went to Mt. Vernon, George Washington's home, where we did a lot more walking in some pretty intense heat. Also went to his Grist Mill and Whiskey distillery for a tour. Once we got back home, we went to the Outlet shops in Williamsburg, where we did a great deal more walking in the oppressive heat :lol:, bought a lot of clothes too ;) Back to the gym tomorrow!

that is the big smoothie. how long did it take you to drink that? I always seem to end up with more than I want when I make smoothies. I really need to figure out a small recipe for me. I just keep throwing stuff in and it's always too much.

Maybe an hour. I generally fill the blender, then blend it down, and add more stuff when there is space. I probably shouldn't do that. I think I sugar crash from all the fruit. Either that or I'm REALLY tired after every workout, which doesn't seem to be the case.

i throe protein powder in (1 or 2 scoops depending on how big I make the smoothie). The protein would help to offset that insulin spike from the fruit. Also you could add a little bit of fat like some coconut oil, or avocado. I know people that even just add olive oil but i never tried that so i don't know how it would taste.

olive oil in the smoothie is super acceptable. i never noticed it was in there. Although I don't make 5 and a half cup smoothies...

do it! besides, it'll help you get big!

@jason - thanks for posting about the olive oil. Im surprised that you can't taste it because when I use coconut oil I can taste it but it tastes good so i dont care.

@robb - hows your back doing these days?

Hey, funny you should ask Mary, it was really bothering me there for a while. I guess I aggravated it moving boxes while cleaning the spare bedroom out. So that and the constant wrist pain prompted me to take some time off from exercise. Hopefully 4 weeks was enough. Also went without internet there for a while. Wife went to Seattle and NYC and had to take the laptop with her for work. Funny how the longer I went, the less motivated I was. I thought it would be the other way around.
