Or should I be going cold turkey with exercise and eating weight gain amounts?

This is exactly what you should be doing.

It sounds like this thread has gotten you to see the problem you have with exercise. It sounds like a light bulb has gone off for you.  I hope that you are able to follow through.

 I did 30 Day Shred and Insanity this morning.

Why would you do two hard workouts in one morning when you are trying to recover?

Original Post by b377ad0nna:

I became a pescetarian just 7 months ago because I want to do something compassionate & be environmentally responsible but hey I'm still human, only human. I still eat seafood, I need sustenance  I have nothing against vegetarians and vegans, heck i admire them and I'm dreaming of becoming one. But as for now, I can only afford pescetarian diet. And for the record, I don't call myself a vegetarian cause yeah I know I am not and far from being one  I also have nothing against people who eat animal flesh, almost 99.9% of my friends and relatives are eating that, and also the "me" 7 months ago. I decided to stop eating animal flesh because I just want to, my prerogative 

Fish and shellfish are animals.

Mine should be roughly 32,000 give or take @ 17.45/day

I will I could vaporize all of them saved for the latest month.

Impressive. 32,165 posts (17.54 per day)

You could, but it would take you approximately (depending on internet speed and finger speed) 321,650 seconds.

Edit: Also, does A-girl have secret mod status or something?

I disabled calorie camp way back at the beginning, and somehow that prevented my profile view from changing to the post-count-less waste land you all find yourselves in.

Well yes, we were kinda shunning to Shosho but I'm dead positive no one holds that against me!

 

I owe Rosie an apology, it wasn't cool for me to put her on the spot like that.  Sorry! :(

We kind of stuck it to Adi as well. At least that's my recollection.

I think it might've been adi that lured tv in, but I'm not sure.  In any event, it sort of felt like a party when it happened. 

Nope, it was shosho (technically a sock puppet)

Can we all agree that rather than other members this is currently the most annoying thing about CC?

One time TV showed up in chat and I was all, "TV!" even though most of the time when TV shows up in a thread I'm all, "Oh lord.  TV."  :D

I think I remember that. It was when shosho was at her peak. Or one of the other trolls around the same time. They all blurred together at this point.

I think we just all need a common enemy again. And no, I'm not nominating any current members. We need someone that we all love to hate, and who loves being hated.

The Lounge CA bans plastic bags Oct 01 2014

The county we used to live in required stores to charge 5c for a bag (paper or plastic). It very quickly got us into the habit of bringing our reusable bags, and now we rarely forget (or choose to get paper bags to store paper recycling in). We still end up with the occasional plastic bag, which we use for lining small wastebaskets, but even then, we will dump the trash into the larger kitchen trash, and reuse the small bags until they get too dirty.

Reusable bags are on the table near the door, with a few spare bags in each of our cars - it's pretty easy to make it part of the routine: got the list? yes. got the bags? yes. got the baby? whoops! I mean, yes.

I was raped. People laughed at my story. Of course I presented it in a comical way, but still, I was the recipient of a nonconsented sexual act. Had I told the story in the same way but substituted the 2 girls with 2 guys and my self with a female friend, the story would have been tragic.  Look under the worst sex thread for reference. 

I read that post, and didn't laugh, despite the comic presentation. It made me incredibly uncomfortable.

Had you presented it in a different tone, I probably would have posted to express my concern for you, but quite honestly, at that time, I didn't feel it was my place to tell you that what happened to you was worse than what you seemed to consider it.

Oh, the people who are treating him know where he is from.

The CDC knows where he is from.

The public doesn't get to know everything about everybody, especially not their medical details, which are protected by law to be kept private.

And I have no idea what speculating where he is originally from would get us, except potentially feed xenophobic paranoia.

Disease doesn't care about nationality. Why, in discussing the likelihood of an outbreak in the US, would we?

Someone close to me was in Liberia for almost a year - he came back about a month ago and we saw him within a week of his return. Wasn't worried, unless he had been showing symptoms. Thankfully, he is now past the 21 day incubation period, so we know he is fine.

The two biggest concerns was when he was still there - would he be able to get a flight out in time (flights were getting more and more expensive, because nobody was flying in, so they had to bring in near-empty planes) and what would happen if he got malaria or something else for which early symptoms are similar to Ebola. Going to the hospital for treatment could result in him getting quarantined with Ebola patients, if he was able to get into the hospital at all.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
