  1. Okay thanks, I thought you were doing a second. Will try!
  2. Rosie can you post your process for the rose kombucha please? I was doing a second ferment with elderberry that came out sooooo good. But then had a batch of contamination and stopped fermenting for a while. A new recipe would do the trick!
  3. You should not have added fruit to the brew until you are ready to do a second ferment. Emcap has the right sequence of how it should be done. I would not use the scoby you have to do a continuous brew because adding the fruit runs the risk of yeast overgrowth. Google around how to "do" kombucha. There are tutorials all over youtube. FTR, I prefer vinegary kombucha. I add a swig of it to all my drinking water.
  4. Join just for the group. You don't have to erm, do the whole FB thang. I don't for the most part.
  5. If anyone wants to join us at the WTM exercise FB, just pm me. We are having fun there too! It's a closed, "secret", group so no one else can see the posts.
  6. Art of Manliness had two episodes I really liked #183 and #187
  7. Moveskill Move Smart Acrolibrary Katie Bowman
  8. Technically of course Max Shank is showing mobility work not stretching. ;)
  9. Greta, sounds like you would be a fan of Ido Portal's work. or any number of people doing similar kind of work.
  10. To my mind, if you don't have full range of motion of every joint, you need to be stretching. Why don't you look at Max Shank's 5 minute flow youtubes as a great way to work those joints. Here's a link to one of them.
  11. This. At first, stretching is more like a workout but with time you will loosen up. For the record, there is nothing relaxing about stretching. Regarding the plyo, I think it's more of a walk before you run situation. What kind of plyo are you thinking of doing? Body weight exercises can be pretty taxing on the cns and you are already doing a lot of cardio type exercise. Again, YMMV. I do not know the current state of your athleticism.
  12. I don't agree with Laurie's PT, as I believe we should be building strength across the full ROM of every joint, but who am I to say? If you are interested I think MoveSkill has posted the videos of their exercise library. I think it might be worth joining ;) to get a comprehensive plan.
  13. Greta, I typed up a whole thing this morning and lost it. Let me try again. Your schedule sounds like it is for someone who is very highly motivated and can keep on track aka, you have a lot of stuff on there. I would recommend keeping a journal to help with motivation. Since you said you are doing walking and rehab every day, these are the changes I would make to your schedule. Remove plyo on Thursday and add stretching. Remove Sunday's workout and make it another stretch day. Also, for your heavy lift days read this little article on deloading and think about how you mig
  14. Thanks for the update. I was just thinking about her.
  15. I drink smoothies but only use a very minimal amount of fruit, such as 1/4 green apple, or 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, I use water as my liquid. 3TBS of hemp seeds work well for protein too. Amazon has a good price on them. I will say that most people think my smoothie recipes are disgusting because they are not sweet at all. Hey, I like them that way. Here's my go to recipe: large chuck aloe vera 1/2 cucumber peeled 1/4 green apple handful of wheatgrass mineral drops 1/2 lime squeezed 3TBS hemp seed 2 TBS coconut creme powder fiber water LOL :gnorsi:
  16. Try this and let us know if it works. I am very curious if it works.
  17. Make some tea with ginger, turmeric and honey.
  18. I never heard of the podcast before. I just happened on it on a recommendation for podcast #183; a topic I *am* quite interested in. The current podcast just popped in my feed. Serendipity, I say! http://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/03/16/podcast-183-when-high-school-pe-was-a-man-maker/
  19. Wouldn't and doesn't bother me at all (as in has happened to me).
  20. http://www.artofmanliness.com/category/podcast/ You're welcome.
  21. How else are they going to write an interesting autobiography about their childhood?
  22. Sloppy form will get you injured. However, maybe you need to drop him off and not be there during his session. I've seen this dynamic before where the kid doesn't respect the coach as he should and always trying to catch the eye of the parent.
  23. I just want to second the sentiments that redsquirrel posted. It was a super hard decision because I had intentions of homeschooling all the way through, but alas, my son decided to go to high school. It has been a good transition. Nothing really prepares you for the teenage years. lol
