I have accomplished my 'to-do' list for the day:

1.) Get dressed..................check

Everything else that gets done is just bonus, right?

You're farther along then i am. I'm not planning on getting dressed lol.

So, i'm thinking of making that cake thingy today, however i have no toothpicks to check for doneness. Could i use a knife or something like that instead?

butter knife works well. Also check the edges, they should be kinda pulling away from the pan. Middle part should spring back when you touch it lightly.

Too funny - I remember thinking why would someone have a bust as their profile pic when I was a newbie - don't think I ventured into the funny pages back then or maybe I would have got it -- I don't think I've seen the one I vaguely remember, but maybe it was Jestgar's kitty -- keep 'em coming -- thanks for the giggles :)

Hey MindWarp, so what's the deal on the 21 units? Have you taken such high load before?

I don't know if I remember anyone finishing a semester w/ that many. Maybe your system is different, but you did say semesters, not quarters. (Learned long ago to not compare my sems w/ others' qtrs)

Loved my Astronomy classes to the point I almost majored in it.

Has meandering Psillyville's Memory Lane skipped The Snow Poodles? :o

And really . ....doesn't "digital pack rat" describe everyone who's owned a computer? :huh:

(unsure if this is directed at me :blink: )

Eh, i need to take 3 semsesters with 21 credits (7 3 hour classes per week) in order to graduate by the spring of 2014. Generally we're only allowed to take 18. This semester i'm taking 19, so its not that big of a jump.

At any rate, my cake plan is canceled at the moment. I feel a bad cold comming on and i had a coughing fit whilst i was cleaning up the kitchen (had a few things left out, etc)

Ooh a cool double! My anthro course would've been for non-majors, but it was fantastically interesting & a pretty popular course to boot.

I remember smiling at the time when I found I wouldn't have to take History of Western Civ after all, since all I'd ever heard was complaints about it, but in hindsight I know it would've been good for me to take back then.

Funny how confused so much of America is on what a socialist regime actually looks like.

I am in grad school, where 6-9 credits is considered a full load. I do have 3 undergrad degrees and I recall taking 19 credits more then once... but could not imagine that now! Struggle to keep up with 6! Might have something to do with not being a 19 year old bachelor any more...

SIW

Sounds fun if hard work :) I did a load of anthropology in amoungst social science ane media stuff. I love the methodology side. Good luck, sounds like you've got a handle on it.

    • Yeah been there, done that, I have broken down to learning to how to cook acorns even, fall I steal pumpkins from the city decorations after halloween so I can eat the seeds and sell the meat in baked goods at the markets. I sometimes used to take produce from the grocery stores. Note you can sometimes talk with a manager and haggle on damaged produce they would toss.  I do not do steal them anymore, my family now offers to support me more now days, and the farmers market and bakery sales keep it where I can just afford food.

           It is  risky state, you have to MAKE sure you eating plenty of fat and protein. Otherwise your body eats itself, as the next best source for fats and protein is the stuff stored on your body as the fat and muscles your have. I live this way myself bit more mild since I can not eat meats. But I eat plenty of egg whites, nuts, seeds, and leafy greens. I literally eat every 4-5 hours at least a protein shake to prevent my body from turning on itself. You can actually body build in ketososis. You just need to really load on the fats and protein, it makes for a LEAN and slow building process....not as easy as carb bulking but my only choice due to my ulcerative colitis having carb, and sugar triggers.

          I am allergic to corn and break out in a rash from it....my mother is hispanic and well you see where that goes, I recall about a year ago she hugged and kissed me on the cheek....well she had eaten something with corn or drank a soda cause I ended up with a red rash in a lip imprint on my cheek bit amusing story for you.   I did a post earlier about where to bulk buy foil sheets, and freezer paper online from my supplier for my bakery I will update this later today with links for you. Buy in industrial rolls and they last you 4-6months
       
    • FYI newly diagnosed should not have oats right away. 
    • You may want to ask your doctor for a celiac panel. That would be a good start. The biopsy needs to be done next to an active lesion and they need to be looking for DH.  Unfortunately it can take a while for DH to be diagnosed because many doctors are not very knowledgeable in the skin form of celiac. Keep eating gluten until all celiac related testing is done. Then you can try the diet if the doctors haven't been able to figure things out or won't test properly.  It can take some time for DH to resolve so you might not notice a difference right away and folks with DH tend to be very sensitive to even small amounts of gluten so you must be very strict. Hope you get some relief soon as I know how miserable the rash can be.
    • Take the opportunity to get healthy!    Nuts, seeds, fruits, take these as snacks on your drive. I personally love almonds and pumpkin seeds. Or bananas and blueberries. Or if you need protein there's lots of gluten free protein bars at gas stations. I like to pack hard boiled eggs too.  One thing I do for long trips is I make sort of a granola/protein bar at home and take it with me.    1 cup oats 3 eggs two spoonfuls of peanut butter some cinnamon and a banana.   mash it all together and bake it like a cake for about 20 minutes. Chop em up into little bars and bag em for your trip. just get creative and try new things! 
    • I totally understand.    Ive noticed the same thing when I started really ramping up my fitness program.    To start, cut out the 30 day challenges. If your serious about fitness, you will incorporate it as a normal entity of life. We already have compromised immune systems so putting sudden outbursts (or challenges) of stress on it will only make you more susceptible to pathogens and ultimately, get you sick.    Take a week, only stretch, light cardio, very light strength training, and lots of rest. Next week, add a little more. Show your body that you can handle it, but do it push it by any means. This new training regime is forever, it's your lifestyle. Take it easy, and play it smart. Slowly add more intense training over time... slowly. Get to a point where you feel your nutrition and fitness needs are being satisfied, and you're productively making differences.   i personally work out 3-4 days a week. But if I go too hard, I get sick. Then I get frustrated that I can't exercise, I work out anyway, and get even more sick. It's just not smart. So I stopped that. I have respect for my immune system and its limits. I took it very slow, and increased my intensity over time. Now I'm at that golden point in my life where everything is balanced. Progress (in terms of personal aesthetics for myself and my interests) is slow, but it's progress. And it's a hell of a lot better than the go hard and get sick cycle.   Best of luck to you friend! I'm sure you will find your way! Learn your body. Know that you are strong, you are powerful, you just have to play it smart.
