  1. I could certainly drink it, but shelling out that kinda loot for wine? Uh, nocando. Must be nice.
  2. I like the pic of you forth from the bottom....I like your hair- fits your face so much better...facial hair is fine too.
  3. Sounds nice---but according to my notes here...not since the 6th when I polished off that last bottle. When it's around it's hard to resist....and I have resisted buying more. It helps that the liquor store that I can walk to is a bit expensive.
  4. Thanks-it really does help to keep me focused even if nobody ever reads it...I imagine all of the eyes critiquing me....ooooh
  5. 8-11-09 moves biking to farm to pick up veggies...round trip 5.5 miles....coming back-an army surplus backpack-had about 13lbs on my back (potatoes, cantaloupe, squash, etc). Not comfortable, but I did alright. Yoga X---- I actually felt a tad more flexible today. Maybe all of this hot and humid weather is loosening me up! Felt really good afterwards. [-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[] meals felt extra hungry today 7:30 nectarine 8:15 1 cup shredded wheat then 1/2 cup 'strawberry fields' cereal w/Almond Breeze 10:00 2 cups org. black coffee 12:00 1 cup mac & crack*, 1/2 garlic tarelle 1:30 6 almonds (2:30 bike ride) 3:00 grazed on some raspberries, blackberries, parsley and basil at farm 4:15 less than a cup of mac & crack, 1/2 garlic tarelle, some more berries, handful of wheat thin like crackers 8:00 handful of golden raisins, few berries, spoonful of rice, some lettuce (8:30 workout) 10:15 little over a cup of brown basmati rice w/collards lightly sauteed in garlic, olive oil, pinto beans, liquid smoke, sea salt, pepper large salad (green lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, beet, tomato, cukes, crushed flax seeds, lemon juice, a.c. vinegar, e.v.olive oil) 1/3 bottle beer lots and lots of water! * "mac & crack"= what I am now calling "mac and cheeze recipe take 2" from vegan yum yum
  6. 8-10-09 moves Having lower back issues-maybe from sleeping on crappy camp mattress w/a slow leak or soft sofa as bed is being repaired. Sharp stabbing pains going down to the right side. Luckily I'll be sleeping back in the sack tonight!!!! Jeez-I lose the pain in my thigh, then I get this present. Oh well, I'm going to move through it.... Back and Biceps-holy bayou batman-it was hotter than it has ever been! I almost hyperventilated at one point. Going outside hardly helped as it was muggy and still. Using the new weights were good except for one thing: the handles collected the moisture and EVERYTHING felt slippery. I still did the same on some exercises- sometimes with a struggle and then I did improve on many too. Thank you, body. I'll type it out from my worksheets when I get to week 12 so the change will really be more dramatic I guess you could say. Gets tedious every week especially because I don't know the proper way to do it as a list. BTW, this is week 7. The most notable was being able to do the last exercise, "Strip Set Curls" where you are supposed to have 4 different sets of weights---and do a set of 8 on each. I only had the 15's and 10's weights so the last few times I did 8 @ 15lb then 3 sets of 8 @ 10lb. Didn't love that. Now that I have the 1/2 sizes, I did [email protected] 8 @12.5 [email protected] [email protected] Ab Ripper---not so bad considering feeling extra zapped from the environment. Me thinks me sees some muscles appearing....

  7. Thanks, Tasha. The 2 Odewalla Bars I've looked at seem fine---tho you need a microscope to read the ingredients! That is just terrible that they put cow milk in their drinks.
  8. 8-9-09 moves Plyometrics--- wow I am not feeling that pain in my left leg anymore so that's good-felt like I got through this pretty decently. I am looking forward to trying the nice new weights tomorrow...

  9. 8-8-09 moves where am I going? hell how am I getting there? hand basket? didn't move it today (just a little walking and then shakin' at a concert-that's not counting)---we got home late and knew we had to work out early-ish the next day.

  10. 8-7-09 moves Shoulders, Chest, Triceps-improvements! Yes! And the best improvement is that we just got some more weights... some lighter ones, and some 1/2 sizes so I'll be able to do a lot more! Ab Ripper- same story different day.

Drinking water ever time I crave a snack (haha I wrote "snake" first)...gotta flush myself silly.
  12. Those 4 movies you mentioned that are your faves are mine too. I feel a loss. His movies are somehow intertwined with my real life memories of h.s. and college.....
  13. 8-5-09 moves a.m. Ab Ripper...yup, it still sucks and I got through it.... again...with....pauses.... sweaty scrubby vacuumy housework in my air conditionerless house p.m. Kenpo! Still like it! Tho my back and neck are hurting a little bit... this is due to the fact that M is fixing our bed frame and I am sleeping on our couch. Too soft! Anyway, I think I am going to look around for some other Kenpo or Kenpo-like dvds for after our 90 day cycle is complete.

  14. hello- (is this how one addresses a king?) Could you talk about what you are into as far as B.B. and/or fitness goes... or maybe goals?
  15. 8-4-09 moves Legs and Back--- my left leg still feels a little "off" but I'll see what happens..... Not too bad...I was able to do everything I did last week except these 80-20 speed squats that they want you to get airborn...I only did a few like that and I did less reps .....I improved more on the pull-up, chin-up stuff again. Once I get more callused on my hands, I'll be able to do even more assisted. I know I have more in me, but my hands were killing me. Ab Ripper waits until the next morning again. It was too late and there was too little air in the tight sauna-like studio. It really is an extra challenge without any air conditioning or windows! Thank you mr. fan, but I wish you were stronger.

  16. thanks---I'll feel better when I don't look like I'm sloshed when I'm trying to do 1 pose after another on 1 foot...I'm going to try it next week without the really squooshy interlocking floor mat we have. There's more but I'll take any tiny victory I can get.
  17. this sounds pretty good----maybe when it gets cooler in my area, I'll give it a try!
  18. 8-3-09 moves I had 2 1 hr. puppet shows (1 hour each) which I can't believe I didn't mention it last week! Ya, so they are physical and take a toll on my left side(especially my shoulder and wrist). It is fun performing tho! I had an acid stomach, something that I hardly ever experience. I prob. got it from lunch during our show break and it lasted until I went to bed. I didn't make the workout any easier. yoga x ....Even tho it was late like last week and I hadn't had a proper meal, I had a better attitude going into it which made the whole thing a little more palatable. I still fail at certain things but all I can do is keep working at them... []-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[]-[] meals 7:45 fresh pineapple, golden raisins 8:15 1 cup shrd wheat cereal, unsw.

  20. 8-1-09 moves well I completely ran out of time to do AB RIPPER routine yesterday: the thunderstorms delayed my departure from my work then I rushed home to get ready for company. I was going to do it today, but I will let it be. Not feeling perfect in my gut today. PLYOMETRICS---the "mother"" of workouts. Waited for M to get home and we started at 9:15 ish---it was a toughie. My left leg is bothering me and the bulk of this workout has to do with squatting and jumping. UGH. Felt good to get that done!

  21. If you want to add a liquid, I would go with Raw Agave Nectar! I use it everyday and it is great! No weird aftertaste either.
  22. 7-31-09 moves my 2nd Chest, Shoulder, Triceps Since the first go-around 1 week ago today, I improved: (number in parentheses indicates last week's rep) If there are weights involved, they remained the same excluding one-Scarecrows. Last week I didn't attempt w/ weight as I though it would be too tough w/10's but this week I gave it a shot, and was happily surprised that I could do 7! Chair Dips (8)10 Plange Push Ups (10) 14 w/knee Pike Presses (5) 6 SideTri-Rises (20) 22 Floor Flys (10) 12 Two Twitch Speed Push-Ups (12) 14 w/k Y-Presses - 10lbs (12) 14 Lying Tricep Extensions - 10lbs ( 9 One Arm Push-ups (6) 10 w/k tho I'm not sure form was the same Clap Push-ups (10) 12 w/k Did worse on: Side to Side Push-ups (14) 12 w/k All other exercises I remained the same.

  23. You are so right about the coffee and alcohol---they are very acidifying too. I guess since I am not having my normal snacky treats all of the time I am feeling a tad deprived and so coffee is a little vice I allow myself to have. The alcohol---ya, I had that wine the end of the day and made sure I had a tall glass of water for each glass of wine...but I still ended up with a headache as I prob. depleted some minerals and such. I was fine by my 6:30 am workout today tho w/some Emergen-C---
