legcramps - Tuesday Feb 05, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I was reminiscing yesterday with my coworkers about when we were kids. I have an older brother, so they got to hear lots of stories about how I would do anything he told me to do, and how many bruises and scrapes I would get because of listening to him.

For example, he'd call out "run at me as fast as you can!" and, of course, I would.


"stand here in the middle of this hockey net"


"stand on this skateboard and i'll tie it to my bike and pull you around"


I cannot believe I haven't broken any bones yet. Knock on wood.

Breakfast: mocha, oatmeal

Lunch: salad

Snack: yogurt, skinny b

Dinner: chicken, brown rice

Exercise: walk 30 minutes at track, Zumba if there's time

Snack: juicing day 13: 1 beet, celery, 2 carrots, 1 apple, some parsley

Just Dance workout last night was THE BOMB. Loved it, so high energy except that my workout friend ended it after 30 minutes and I was ready to freakin dance the whole night through. Need to borrow this fascinating thing called Wii and Just Dance 3.

P.S. - I get to hear the results of the x-ray on my knee this afternoon.... dum dum dum dum...

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/05/2013:
Good luck with your results. I also was the youngest and a girls. The boys certainly had me doing a lot of stupid stuff. Cowboys and Indian guess who was the indian getting killed. Goal keeper in hockey. Back catcher in baseball. LOL Brothers you have to love them because if not you would kill them. LOL. Have a great day. You brought me good memories.

Puddles on 02/05/2013:
I have been researching it also and in order to loose body fat it is what I thought it was

Fats 20 to 30 grams daily Carbs 70 gram daily

Now that would be for 1200 calories daily intake which is what I am on.

Thank you

IndependentEm93 on 02/05/2013:
I'm glad my sister wasn't like that to me!

supercheese on 02/05/2013:
LOL sounds like my siblings! There are 6 of us all within 4 years of age difference so you can imagine LOL. OH and the lunch time yoga is here at work! We have a large conference room that gets used. I really like it!

OhioRaven on 02/05/2013:
Let us know the results on your knee. We are hoping for good news.

V on 02/05/2013:
I have 5 brothers and man did I do some stupid shyyte to impress them..LOL..Please update us on your knee my friend <3

Here's hoping for good news about the knee.

legcramps - Monday Feb 04, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I played it smart over the weekend and avoided having to converse with other people. This gave me an opportunity to 'get over' my bleariness without saying something I might regret later.

I am happy to report that by Sunday afternoon, I was dancing to a Zumba workout in my living room. Good times.

Eats: omellettes, toast, chicken on Saturday and salmon on Sunday. Sunday is turning into fish day; that's two weeks in a row where i've had fish on Sunday.

My knee is not better, but my back certainly is a lot better than it was last week. Today is the last day of the anti-infammatory (thank God) and I stopped taking the painkillers during the day; only one right before bed.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal

Lunch - chef salad

Snack - yogurt, skinny b

Dinner - chicken, rice, green beans

Exercise - Just Dance workout

Snack - juicing day 12:  my juicer seems to be struggling with juicing carrots, beets, anything with a tougher consistency. still got my juice last night though - carrots, apple, celery, parsley, and a beet. same thing on tap for tonight!

Looking forward to slow-cooked chicken tonight for dinner :)

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 02/04/2013:
glad ur back is feeling better, hope ur knee does soon.. have a great day!

OhioRaven on 02/04/2013:
Hope you get your knee and your juicer straightened out :v)

thenewMLE on 02/04/2013:
At least your back is progressing! I'm sure once you get off the pain meds your thoughts will be a little more clear. I hope you find relief for your knee soon. RYC, yes, I am a little overwhelmed right now, but riding and eating right do make me feel better. My friend should be OK, it just hit a little close to home! Do you like the ZUmba? I bought a xbox kinect Zumba at the beginning of the summer, but I never opened it...I guess I should give it a try! Hope you have a nice day!

Puddles on 02/04/2013:
My knee problem is I damaged the meniscus further damage to it would be final for me. The told me it would at least take a year of being extremely careful. Would not know if I am damaging it until I do something and I make it worst. That is why I am staying away from any standing exercises or sit up or push ups.

lolla on 02/04/2013:
So happy you are feeling better... living with pain sucks, I have tendinitis in both elbows and yesterday I had a bad day trying to cook and clean some. It limits everything we want to do. Have a great week1

V on 02/04/2013:
Great alternative for a workout since you knee is still troubling you :( RYC Yep only one jello shot, they were hella strong,you know it's bad when you can't taste the jello..hahahaha I guess it was for the best, I am sure I would have downed an entire tray had they been a little weaker.. And yep got my GTL on...Gym, Tan, Laundry ;) LOL Have a wonderful day!!

INDEPENDENTEM93 on 02/04/2013:
Glad that your back is better! Hopefully your knee will follow suit!

biscottibody59 on 02/04/2013:
Hope you have a good week and your knee begins to cooperate!

supercheese on 02/04/2013:
poor knee :( hopefully zumba isnt hurting it!!

hollybelle on 02/04/2013:
Catching up with your posts. Sorry for the pains in knee and back. I will tell you I had awful knee problems out of the clear blue about a year and a half ago. I had to really baby it and skip some types of exercise and rest it. That is actually one of the reasons I began cycling again-so blessing in disguise?? But I see you are not resting it. Did doc say to rest it? I really didn't think my knee would EVER be the same - it was so unstable - period. But it came back....at least so far! LOL. Hope things work out. Thank you for your kind comments. I know you have been through similar stuff as we are with MIL. It's especially hard since we lost dad a year ago. Nothing much to do for her at this time. Feels so wrong.

niftyjack on 02/05/2013:
Glad you're on the mend!

Also, Re:Monkey Ears. I made them specifically to inflict them on other people. What's the point of making them if I couldn't make others wear them for my amusement?

Maria7 on 02/05/2013:
Glad you are feeling better. :-)

legcramps - Friday Feb 01, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I think these meds are taking a toll on me... I just want to be done with them. They're making me feel crappy. And hungry. Yesterday was a bad day. I ate my way through a box of chocolates and stubbornly ate two peanut butter sandwiches because I was feeling sorry for myself.

And really, all this bloatedness is just bringing me down, man. I'm so depressed I could write a song.

I am so going to head to bed when I get home from work today.

Breakfast - mocha, yogurt

Lunch - blerg, who cares

Snack - yogurt, skinny b

Dinner - chicken and something else, maybe oven cooked fries. maybe more chocolate

Exercise - day off

Snack - juicing day 9: I skipped juicing yesterday once again. No excuse for it; I was angry and down on myself and ate two peanut butter sandwiches and a box of chocolates instead. But you already heard about that, so I won't reiterate. Much.

I can try to pull myself out of this well i'm stuck in, but I really think the only thing to do is take the darn meds and wait it out. I'll be done by Tuesday. I hope.

But it's dark in here and I don't have a lantern. And the zombies may get me.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

lolla on 02/01/2013:
Sorry you are going trough some blues times but soon it will turn around I am sure. You've come a long way 14 lbs lost, keep positive. yeah right, so easy to say, specially me, going through my rut!!!:>{

Umpqua on 02/01/2013:
Feel better and I hope you have a nice weekend!

OhioRaven on 02/01/2013:
We all have bad days. This has GOT to be yours. I think you're gonna feel better about yourself tomorrow :v)

Puddles on 02/01/2013:
Things will turn around. Just hang in there. Tomorrow is another day.

V on 02/01/2013:

nunnermack on 02/01/2013:
That's why I always like tomorrows. It gives me the opportunity to start fresh again. Hang in there.

legcramps - Thursday Jan 31, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Definitely feeling a little blah this morning. I got at least eight hours of sleep, but I think i'm getting groggy from the painkillers.

There is a windchill warning out today; it is - 48 degrees celcius with the windchill this morning. That's akin to freezing bare skin in under three minutes. Awesomesauce.

Good thing it only takes me 2 minutes and 45 seconds to walk from my car to the entrance to where I work. Now if only I had remembered to put a toque on. And warmer gloves. Brrr.

Anyways, I saw a slight gain on the scale this morning and not sure what it's from since i've been eating really well and getting exercise in. I could be retaining fluids because of the meds though, so i'm not going to freak out about it. Let it be.

Breakfast: mocha, oatmeal (apple, pb)

Lunch: soup or salad

Snack: yogurt, skinny b

Dinner: chicken, rice

Exercise: 30 day shred (not all of it, so don't freak out on me, just a few of the moves that i'm comfortable doing)

Juicing day 8 was a wash; I was groggy and tired and too lazy to make myself juice. Will try again tonight.

Knee pain again last night. Geez, this is happening more and more often; kind of takes my breath away.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 01/31/2013:
Wow on that windchill, be careful! The pain meds can definitely mess with your system so I wouldn't worry about the gain. Have a good one!

Puddles on 01/31/2013:
i will take your weather instead of what we have right now -18C with windchill -28C. Northern Ontario. Take care and have a good day. Meds always play tricks on our systems. Don't worry about the scale.

V on 01/31/2013:
Stay warm there my friend..I echo what the other ladies said..A few of those meds can make you bloated, def don't sweat it..I hope your knee feels better today :)

Tangalyn~ on 01/31/2013:
freezing here too! i hope u can get ur juicing in tonight... try to have a great day!!

OhioRaven on 01/31/2013:
Awesomesauce :v)

supercheese on 01/31/2013:
holly heck thats cold!!! Where srping!!!!

lolla on 01/31/2013:
good approach, no freaking out! It is what it is. Hope you feel better and free of pain.

Puddles on 01/31/2013:
Yes I have reread your posting and saw that you have the - (minus) on the previous line had not notice that. I agree much colder. I will keep what we have here for weather. Have a good day.

nunnermack on 01/31/2013:
I'm so sorry about your knee pains!! I know how you feel. Your menu looks super healthy!!! Good job!!

cybermom4 on 02/01/2013:
Thank you for your encouragement - I wish I knew how to get around the fluid retention from meds - may have to do soemr research on that. Take care of yourself.

legcramps - Wednesday Jan 30, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Doc actually showed a little bit of concern yesterday when I went to see him. Not with my back, he figures I just pulled a muscle in my back, but with my knee. He gave me a prescription for anti-inflammatories and a painkiller (told you so!).

One painkiller before bed and I haven't slept that well in years.

Doc also asked me to get a better brace for my knee, so I went shopping after my appointment, while I was waiting to fill my prescription. I found a much better, more stable brace. Still don't know how i'm going to wear it while playing wallyball though. Skip the knee pad on that side I guess.

Then I went to the hospital so they could x-ray my knee. I won't know the results of this until my follow-up appointment next week. Doc says if the x-ray doesn't show anything, he's going to send me to a specialist.

Breakfast - mocha, oatmeal

Lunch - soup or salad

Snack - I forgot to bring one... this might end up being scary.

Dinner - chicken, rice, green beans

Exercise - walk 30 minutes at track

Snack - juicing day 8: 1 beet, 3 stalks celery, 3 large carrots, parsley, and 1 apple.

Happy Hump Day!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 01/30/2013:
hopefully the meds will fix ur knee.. have a good day!

OhioRaven on 01/30/2013:
Go easy on that knee.

thenewMLE on 01/30/2013:
Glad you got a good night sleep and nothing too serious with your back. Take care of that knee! RYC, you hit the nail on the head - I am feeling guilty and normally I wouldn't let it bother me, but I am picking up on strained vibes from him and I don't know if it is directed at me or just that we are in a financial pinch at the moment. And it doesn't help that he is my younger brother...AHHHH I need to talk to him now, but he is in a really deep thought process for a project right now and I am afraid disturbing him will only complicate my issues. I WILL TELL HIM - Thanks! I needed that!

Puddles on 01/30/2013:
Great idea the lemon juice - I had forgotten about that - have done it in the past to make it more interesting. Thank you for the help. Have a good day.

supercheese on 01/30/2013:
hope the knee is okay!!

Umpqua on 01/30/2013:
Glad you got some meds for your knee, I hope it's feeling better soon!

thinnside40 on 01/30/2013:
Remember that anti-inflammatories use on regular basis will cause fluid retention..Yes, they are great for muscle inflammation, but cause swelling...Go figure! If/when they work, it is a great relief to be rid of the pain no matter. I hope your x-rays turn out that you don't have any major issues and it can be fixed with medicine and the right brace....

biscottibody59 on 01/30/2013:
Sorry you're having so much trouble with aches and pains. I swear by deadlifts for low back and squats to keep my quads/knees healthier (than if I don't do them). I don't know how old you are, but past 35ish it takes somewhat regular wt trng (at least for me) to avoid pain/keep the muscles built up. I'd think with the wallyball and other organized sports you do, that would probably help out a lot.

I just recently found out that my BP is fairly sensitive to ibuprofen--it goes up, so I have to be careful. If I were a normal weight I wonder if this would be such an issue. I guess time will tell:-)

I hope you find out there's nothing serious going on, you can fully recover and resume your normal activities!

V on 01/30/2013:
I am happy that you got your knee checked out..I hope everything is resolved soon girl..I have knee issues as well and have to wear a brace on the right knee(it is all jacked up) when I workout..Hoping that your tests are in your favor <3

P.S. Thanks for your concern..I am still feeling a bit stressed but better :)

starfish on 01/30/2013:
Hi! I hope your knee feels better soon.

legcramps - Tuesday Jan 29, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I had an extremely angry day yesterday when the thought occurred to me that I might have to give up playing wallyball for now. It makes me angry just typing it out.

I made a doctor's appointment for this afternoon, since this morning my lower back is still in some pain, and my knee was also burning and quite sore to move around. Enough.

My birthday is coming up on Feb 10th and i'll be damned if i'm going to miss out on the afternoon of indoor golfing I planned. So, here we go. Let's hope there's an easy fix.

Day 7 of juicing: I feel like I may be getting too much fibre in my daily diet. Maybe TMI but the BMs are not going well. My weekly review of juicing leaves me wanting to limit them to one a day instead of two. Might try that for a week and see what happens. Otherwise, i'm very happy with the results of the juicing so far. Definitely feeling more energetic! This is such an awesome way to get in the vegetables that I so obviously ignore in my diet.

Breakfast: mocha, juice (+ extra cup of black coffee) (250)

Lunch: salad or soup (400)

Snack: yogurt (100)

Dinner: chicken, rice, green beans (400)

Exercise: walk 30 minutes at track (don't think for a second i'm going to stop doing everything)

Snack: peanut butter sandwich (350)

Hopefully the doc can suggest some good alternatives for my knee; i'm thinking an actual brace or wrap that will better support my sporting activities. And I guess some painkillers for my back, because what else can we do?

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

thinnside40 on 01/29/2013:
Not sure what all your aches and pain issues are, but we have started taking some supplement called Flex-a-min by Nature's Bounty. It sure has helped my husband's knees and my lower back issues....Took about a week or two to reaaly start noticing..Beats shoveling down the ibuprofen!

niftyjack on 01/29/2013:
Oh no! That's a shame that you might have to give up wallyball for a while, but hopefully the doc can patch you up. I'm sure you'll be able to return to it in no time.

Umpqua on 01/29/2013:
I hope the doctor can get you fixed up and feeling better!

mylilsista on 01/29/2013:
Hopefully this is a "temporary" condition that can be resolved with a little self-care and, perhaps, medication. I admire your motivation! I also need more veggies incorporated into my meal plan; I tried the juicer but haven't found combinations that are low cal AND taste good...yet! Still experimenting with this :)

Puddles on 01/29/2013:
I hurt my knee last year just stepping down from my Step Ladder. Turned the knee instead of the body. Ended up with six months sitting down with ice and leg up and pack on quite a few pounds - so hello I am here. I made it worst because I wanted to finish my painting job - had I stopped I would not be here right now. So take care and have a good day

mskitty on 01/29/2013:
Knees are my weakness too, they are always going out on me. I try to do more squat exercises and walking to strengthen them up.

V on 01/29/2013:
I sure hope you don't have to give up walleyball, I know how much you love it :( I didn't realize that your Bday is coming soon, Woohoot!! Party Time :)

I'm sorry that you're feeling down...you're in my prayers for a speedy recovery! ;)

Oh my lower back pain is a bi*** hope it will recover before your birthday!! During my bday I want to dance till I need to crawl back home! hahah... BTW, yea, the dance floor is cool! Just jump to the stream if you feel hot! :D

legcramps - Monday Jan 28, 2013

Weight: 166.0


Wow. That 1 beet yesterday is putting my body through some wicked motions today.

Hello, bathroom. Stay close.

Brief Summary of my weekend:

Friday: I hung out at home in the evening and had my 2nd juice. No exercise; it was a day off!

Saturday: Got my hair coloured again, tried to stay under my calories but failed miserably. I had 2 fried eggs on toast for lunch, with some raw carrots. I only managed 1 juice; I heard there would be no dinner at the event, so I ate chicken and rice before I left; then they served a bunch of munchies and cheesecake and I had myself some vodka punch; I just didn't have enough willpower  I went over by around 500 calories.

The event was awesome; no I did not get hypnotized but I wish I had. The majority of his show was clean, and I would have been okay with what he had those girls doing. Maybe next year! Fundraiser for a great cause (breast cancer).

Sunday: Realized the pain in my butt was back. I slept in, had fried eggs again for lunch, and juice before leaving the house to go to wallyball. When I got to the city, my stomach was really bothering me. I thought I was hungry, so I got a bag of chocolate covered blueberries and had a serving of that. Felt better, played wallyball; back still hurt which affected my play and I didn't feel like I did well.

Forgot to enter calories from chocolate covered blueberries, so when I got home I ate chicken, rice, green beans, then my juice (below), THEN a pb sandwich because I thought I still had calories to eat. Crap. Over by around 100 calories.

In the end, not a big deal, maybe I needed the extra calories this weekend. Not going to sweat it because I enjoyed them all

Day 6 of juicing: Yesterday made juice with 1 apple, celery, 3 carrots, some parsley and 1 beet. Not bad. This morning is all of that minus the beet. Still scared of the beets

Day 6 of new shampoo & conditioner: Definitely keeping. Awesome. Soft. Glossy. End of discussion. #paulmitchellFTW. I don't know why i'm hashtagging that. I don't even know what "hashtag" means.

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - salad

Snack - oatmeal, apple & peanut butter

Dinner - salmon, brown rice, green beans

Exercise - Just Dance wii workout

Snack - juice

So my back is sore, and my knee is really bothering me. Wondering whether I should just make a doc appt or let it go and see how it feels in a few days (which is pretty much what I did last week). Problem with making an appt - my doc here has a tendency to not take these things seriously enough. It's always a fight to get proper care. Ask him to refer me to a sports doc? Grrr.... I don't know if it's serious enough for that.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 01/28/2013:
i hope all ur soreness goes away soon.. hope u have a great day!

Umpqua on 01/28/2013:
LOL on the hash tagging ;P Your foods all sound really healthy so I wouldn't think twice about it. Glad you had a nice weekend! P.S. Have you tried arnica for your sore spots? May be worthwhile before going to a specialist.

OhioRaven on 01/28/2013:
Thanks for your post. Hey, beets are good for you. Dr.Oz sez so :v)

Puddles on 01/28/2013:
lol lol Yes beets do amazing things to our system. I am the same way. I tend to stay away from them unless I need them in my diet. Take care.

V on 01/28/2013:
LOL yeah certain foods wreak havoc on my system, hope the beets don't keep ya in the loo all day..Hope that your soreness subsides, but it may be a good idea to see what the Doc says..Sounds like you had a good time at the event and with your walleyball workout, that extra 100 cals won't hurt..I too would have given in to the vodka punch too(says the lush,hahaha)

Yeah I was pretty pissed that the broad didn't show up..I had a million things I needed to get done yesterday not to mention getting up at the ass crack of dawn instead of getting to sleep in..It was nice to meet new people and their work environment seems alot less stressful and we noticed that they all seem to be hard workers when we ate there..Anyhoo I hope you have a wonderful evening my friend <3

V on 01/28/2013:
P.S. LOL @ hashtagging adding this word to my vocab :)

sailingeagle on 01/28/2013:
My brother came back from Alaska with some chocolate covered blueberries...they were delicious! What is wallyball? Have a good one!

Day 4 of juicing: Last night and this morning I made juice with spinach, carrots, 1 apple and celery. Today I need to hit the grocery store and stock up again; maybe i'll try some beets since biscotti gave me a recipe with them in it and says it's tasty ;)

Not much planned for today; I am going to a hypnotist event tonight so that should be fun. I think dinner is included, so who knows what that will be!

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - two eggs on toast

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - tbd

Exercise - another day off to get ready for wallyball tomorrow!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Let us know how the hypnotist event goes. Sounds interesting!

Wooo Hoo! walleyball.. ITA don't volunteer for the hypnosis, my friend was under this guy's spell and she kissed a mop thinking it was the lead singer for Filter, it was hilarious and odd at the same time.. Hahaha Have a wonderful weekend <3

Day 3 of juicing: Last night's juice was made with spinach, carrots, 1 apple, and some celery. Same thing for this morning. I just make double of whatever recipe I choose for the day.

Unfortunately, there isn't much at the grocery store to be able to try too many other juicing recipes.

I'm scared to try beets because I hear it can be pretty harsh on detoxing the body. And ginger is in some recipes and that kind of scares me too because with my luck i'd probably end up putting too much in and making it undrinkable.

My life is JUST. SO. HARD sometimes...

Completed another round of 30 Day Shred last night; while my abs were really complaining, I noticed my shoulder muscles also straining to keep up with the workout yesterday. Thankfully, the pain in my butt is now almost non-existent. Whew.

Slept hard. Looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow.

Happy Friday!

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - salad, oatmeal with pb and blueberries

Snack - yogurt, skinny B

Dinner - chicken and rice, green beans

Exercise - NONE. Day off! Might go to the hockey game tonight...

Snack - juice

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OOOOhhh I LLOVE beets and ginger, you can never have enough ha ha. I want to start juicing, but all I have is a blender and its a pretty bad one at that.

Just to let you know beet juice mixed with apple, celery and carrot is good. You could also throw in some kale too.

Have a good weekend!

legcramps - Thursday Jan 24, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Today my ab muscles asked me why they hurt so much. I told them I was working out, to help them become stronger. I said they'd feel more confident, and want to show themselves off. And maybe, I said, one day you won't be covered by a layer of fat cells and you can be FREE. Free! I said. Just imagine!

So i'm a little sore this morning, but all is good. Went for a walk last night for exercise, and tonight is the Shred again.

Day 2 using new Shampoo & Conditioner: Feels softer, looks glossier, smells awesome. Need to try hot iron and other styling products, but so far it seems to work with my natural curls - doesn't end up in a big old knot by the end of the day ;) I actually hate my curls most of the time, but when my hair is this soft, they look much nicer!

Day 2 of juicing: My juicer was delivered yesterday, so I decided to start juicing right away. Last night's juice was carrot and apple (that's all the fresh vegetables I had in the fridge). It was actually delicious, and i'm not even exaggerating. I made one for this morning as well and i'm going to hit the grocery store after work for a few other vegetables. My plan is to juice twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening, along with my normal eats.

I really need to find recipes to make loaves with all the pulp from juicing. Wow. Lots of pulp. I could have made a dozen loaves of carrot loaf with all the pulp. Exaggerating slightly, of course.

Breakfast - mocha, juice

Lunch - oatmeal, pb, blueberries (or a salad from cafeteria)

Snack - yogurt, skinny b

Dinner - chicken, rice, green beans

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Snack - juice

Other news: The Walking Dead is getting interesting. I think i'm on episode 6 of the first season. The kid gets shot. Hope I didn't give anything away...


Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

lol If only your ab muscles could talk to my ab muscles and have confidence like that. Maybe one day LOL! Sore is awesome!

I love the way you talk to your legs!! I got my morning chuckle from you! It's so funny about your curls - my hair is perfectly straight and I ALWAYS wanted curls!!! And now my perfectly straight hair is kinking up from the texture of the gray that has over taken my head! Of course I color it, but I bet if it grew out it would be all silver so I have to flat iron it after I dry it or it gets frizzy. I didn't realize you could make bread from pulp. Interesting concept! Have a great day!
