Quinoa is an interesting texture. The mixture I got the other day was Quinoa and brown rice with olive oil and spices. The spices didn’t thrill me, but today I added a bit of mustard and it was quite tasty. I’ll have to figure out a better spice mix.

I’ve switched from a short Yoga/Tai Chi exercise regiment to 20-30 minutes of yoga and strength training and balance games on the Wii Fit. Figure that’ll do more good than what I was doing, docs keep telling me I need to build muscle to protect my joints. Also, it’s more fun. I do need something solid to go under the board though, the carpet confuses it. Either that or I really did lose 12 pounds in one day… but the bathroom scale disagrees to the tune of 20 pounds, so.

Once again on the quest for healthy, but tasty foods. I get so bored with all the normal stuff. And my teensy kitchen does not help with the desire to cook new and complicated things. Even new and simple sometimes. ::dreams of a house someday with big kitchen and counter space::

Financial year is nearly over at work, hurray for the stress of trying to do last minute catch up. We are going to meet several of our goals, but others… not so much. It’s just never enough. Ah retail.

Going to get myself a nook simple touch soon (yay credit card points). Make reading the computer books I got easier. The app just doesn’t fit well to my netbook screen. Then again, not much does. I like the little guy, is good for most of my computer work, but web design just needs bigger screens. IMHO

B&N is alternating between 4 and 8 hours a week for me now. Bookup stays fairly steady at one full day and two half days. We have two people working on our forum integration. I got the help desk set up yesterday, but there are two problems to overcome there as well.  I am moving forward in learning the Traffic Ultimatum system. I have not had much luck finding good options to play lately. I will check IBD again soon.

My health continues to be good, though I’ve been fighting the beginnings of a sore throat with fresh OJ, hot cider and Alkaselzter Cold and Cough. Yoga has been a great addition to my life, increased flexibility is already present, though I don’t get to go to the full class very often. This morning I didn’t groan at a single “take a vinyasa” as was my habit previously.

I am currently off all medications, though I do now have health insurance cards for the newest policy Rich’s company has adopted. I’m not sure I mentioned this, but I have a new GP-OB/GYN here in town, instead of having to run to Newark, and a clean bill of health from her as well. I see my RA doc soon, and need to make a Dentist appointment as well, they’ve been calling again.

Rich had a couple setbacks this week. Some trouble with possible hernias that he is getting checked out today. And a slight mishap in a parking lot between his car and an SUV.  All is well and being taken care of, insurance is a wonderful thing.

Coming soon: Cedar Point and MarCon

I’ve stopped taking my drugs. Not intentionally, I’ve just been lazy. I think I last took some on Saturday, maybe Friday. I’ve little aches here and there, but some movement and stretching generally makes them feel better. I really need to make the time to exercise, and I keep saying this, but it’s true. Yoga, Tai Chi, Strength Training, something, probably all of the above. Food’s been going alright, though I’ve had mad cravings for chocolate lately. And, I admit, have indulged a few times. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, I’m down to 125 last check. That’s 20 pounds in the last three months. Was not my intention, and I’d really rather gain some of that back, in muscle preferably(see the need to exercise). Other than that, things are really going quite well.

Food of the Week: Red Potatoes and Broccoli, dressed with Olive Oil, Rosemary, Basil and Garlic Salt.
