  1. Today is a good day. Got enough steps in at work that I'll have 7k by bedtime. Dinner was good. I thinly sliced two seedless cucumbers and put them in a bowl with two finely chopped bell peppers. I added some salt, honey, and rice vinegar and mixed it. I cooked a thinly sliced red onion in some avocado oil for a few minutes, then added ginger paste and garlic and cooked a bit more, then two pounds of grass fed ground beef, and cooked till brown, then the juice of three limes, some honey, and some coconut aminos. I let that cook till the liquid thickened. We put the meat and the veggies on lettuce leaves. It was really good.
  2. Congrats passing the test. Sorry things are so difficult for you.
  3. Wolfie is back! And now you're a drug dealer too? I'm so glad you are challenging again.
  4. My friend, you should always have food to hand when reading my threads. Today is a good day. After the gym (which included both Sauna and Steam Room), I had lunch and got groceries. I put them away, ran the dishwasher, took out the trash, and got Little Bit. I am pretty tired today. Dinner was Blood-Orange Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Butternut Squash and Broccoli. I love blood oranges, both for their flavor and the fact that I got to type "Blood" as part of the title of my dinner. I put butternut squash cubes and broccoli florets on a foil lined baking sheet and added olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and dried thyme. I roasted it at 400 degrees (204 4/11 C) for 30 minutes. Meanwhile I cooked some chopped chicken thighs in avocado oil with salt, pepper, fresh chopped rosemary, the zest of a blood orange, and the juice of that same orange. I let it cook long enough that the liquid all reduced down into the chicken, it was amazing, and paired well with the vegetables. Poor Little Bit was so tired at bedtime she had a major meltdown (we think she didn't nap at school), but this one was easier to manage for some reason.
  5. It's OK to choose not to buy a product you don't need, even if you have a personal connection to the maker.
  6. Today is a good day, a chill day, a rest day. I did some Yoga in the morning, and not much else. I watched some TV, took a nap, and went to go get Little Bit from my parents. Dinner was good. I cooked a diced shallot in avocado oil, and when it browned I added garlic. I then added two bags of shaved brussels sprouts with salt, pepper, and apple cider vinegar. I cooked it till the sprout shavings started to char. I also cooked chopped pork chops in avocado oil. When they were almost done I added 1/4 c (60ml) each honey and chicken broth, then two tablespoons (30 ml) coconut aminos and eyeballed about the same of mustard. I let that come to a boil then cooked it at medium for five minutes. It was all amazing.
  7. I'm guessing not since it's a very established platform, but do you have anything to do with the GAU Avenger from the A-10?
  8. My favorite part is the part between the beginning and the end.* *and a bit of the appendices.
  9. Dude! I'm so excited for you! I read the books about once a year and love them dearly. I hope you enjoy them.
  10. Reminds me of that part in Fellowhship (book) where Boromir and Aragorn just force a path through the snow with nothing but sheer awesomeness as tools.
  11. Today is a good day. After the gym I piddled around and finally made lunch. I cut up most of a napa cabbage, then some green onions, and put those in a pan with olive oil, matchstick carrots, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I cooked it about five minutes, stirring regularly. I set that aside and mixed the juice of two limes, 3 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp rice vinegar, and 1 tbsp fish sauce. I whisked that together. I cut up two pork tenderloins and seasoned them with salt and pepper, then put them in a pan with half the liquid and cooked it. I served the pork on top of the cabbage carrot mix, and poured the rest of the liquid on top as a sauce. It was very good.
  12. I did NF Yoga for long enough to know what stretches help. I for sure do forward fold and squat hold every time. I stretch out my quads with a low lunge on squat days. I usually do butterfly pose, then either fire log or pigeon pose. I usually do downard dog for a bit to hit the calves.
  13. Mental health stuff is hard. Hugs friend. I hope it gets better quickly.
