  1. Propagandhi was my favorite band in middle school, I had no idea that they were vegan until this thread. Nothing better than a good surprise. I don't have anything of theirs besides 'how to clean everything'. Time to update my collection!
  2. lol, yeah probably would be better. I remember doing that too between sips... only REALLY, REALLY gently. does she have allergies or something that causes her to get the earaches, or does she just have sensitive ears?
  3. my old trick is to breastfeed while flying... I haven't flown since my daughter was 2 though, so I don't know what to do when they are too old for that! What about sipping water? I once had a sinus infection during a flight to New Orleans when I was a teenager, the pressure was so bad that I was crying and the flight attendant brought me water to sip... I think it worked pretty well.
  4. I am keeping my food/fitness log in a nifty journal now so I can take it w/ me and keep it updated throughout the day. I am following DCNINJA's suggestions from my thread on cardio. Soooo... I will update here when I see some results!
  5. awwwww thank you for your kind words of support! Yes, my dad's problems are mostly mental which have manifested themselves into physical. He was actually taken to the hospice as a result of taking too many xanax and appearing incoherent when a nurse came to check on him at his home. Sigh. hee hee, I am glad to hear that I inspired you to stay away from the caffeine! I am trying to be good, but today I drank a soy latte b/c I had to wake up about 3 hours earlier than I normally do... I'll get back on the wagon though!
  6. YES! I knew I loved Bob for a reason....he's a smart cookie!! thanks for posting this!
  7. which ads are we talking about?? sorry if I am a little slow
  8. Duuuuude! you car is rad! Congrats! Is that the color you got?? hmmm... if that's the color, then I vote for 'Clementine' maybe that's too old fashioned for a car that cool though... haha. I'm not very good at naming inanimate objects.
  9. aaaaaahhhhh! the last few days have been crazy, in a bad way. My dad was taken to a hospice on Saturday and we are fighting to get him home, b/c he does not belong in a hospice. Yesterday when I took the kids to visit him they were wheeling a dead body out the front door as we were walking in! I had never seen a dead body before, it was quite distrubing (well, I didn't actually SEE it since it was covered with a sheet, but still...distrubing). So I am dealing with doctors, and hospice peeps and all of this crap and it is really emotional. For the past few days I have spent the greater part of each day trying not to scream. I think I am driving everyone at work crazy w/ my uncontrollable sighing. And speaking of work... this is our busiest week as we get ready for fall and push the spring stuff out the door... it has been crazy busy and setting the store up for Fall is like moving x 10. It is really intense. So, I have not been updating my food journal, or getting to the gym (I made it today for only about 20 min). I am going to gather my shit together this weekend and start a new gym routine on Monday, thanks to DCNINJA for taking the time to help me out w/ a routine. I am excited about that, and I just need to remember that no matter what crazy shit I have going on, I NEED to make time for myself, or I am going to lose IT .
  10. These shorts are so frikkin' comfortable! AND cool! I fill them out a bit more than Hilda does I have to say though, they are super flattering, no matter your butt shape or size order some, girls- you'll love 'em!
  11. DUDE! you are awesome, thank you (x100)! Monday will be Day 1, I am stoked!
  12. Ok, so I just looked at my club visit history for my gym online and it looks like I have gone at least 3x week since May and an average of 4x a week for the last month. I am just starting to get discouraged b/c in the past I have seen at least 1-2lbs of weight loss a week when working out as much (or actually even less than) I am now... and right now I am really challenging myself, I am not slacking. I am thinking that you were right Marcina when you used the dreaded 'P' word.... I am still nursing my son, so I am thinking that my body is just not willing to let go of any more weight since the weight I am at right now is the same weight I was b4 I got pregnant, and actually, the weight I have been most of my adult life. I just so badly want to get past this point!
  13. Wednesday 8/5/09 I know I need to update yesterday, will get around to it later! I am baking a vegan chocolate cake for my honey's b-day today... it smells sooooo delicous! FOOD: breakfast: Banana-Ginger-Pear Cereal (pg 215 'Thrive')= 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 date (first 3 ingredients cut into bite size pieces), 1/4 cup chopped almonds, 1T ground flax, 1T hemp protein, 1/2 T roasted carob powder, 1/2 T raw cacao powder (not in original recipe), 1/2 T grated fresh ginger, drizzle of maple syrup (not in original recipe) W/ almond milk. O M G this was the best thing that I have ever eaten! ever. THIS is the food for which the word food-gasm was put in the dictionary! ok, so I don't think the word food-gasm is actually in the dictionary, but this shit was really frikkin' good. I think I am in love with Brendan Brazier. morning snack: lunch: afternoon snack: dinner: after-dinner snack: WORKOUT:
