  • I took a free MB personality test. It says I'm an ISTP. Sounds pretty reasonable when I read the description. Not sure I'm adventurous, unless you count willing to change jobs on a whim and move across the country.

    • Funny, do you do Facebook? I just posted yesterday a graphic that shows the different personality types of the Harry Potter characters.

      I am an ENFP, which makes me Ron Weasley. ISTP makes you Harry Potter! http://25.media.tumblr.com/765632a34...o1_r1_1280.jpg

      • Yeah, that's what made me go take it = your FB post. I made DH take it as well. He is ESFJ.

        I knew for sure you were an "E" From what I know of you, ENFP is a wonderful fit.

        • So after a non-fasting day, I am down .2 to 259.2. Today is another non-fasting day, so we shall see.

          Food yesterday was interesting. I made a smoothie when I got home because I thought I needed to figure out how to incorporate the anti-inflammatory chia and flax. It was gross. Not gross tasting but a weird texture. I dumped it. I don't really need anything when I get home from work and should just plan to wait for dinner, but once I got the thought that I was going to have something well, gosh darn I was gonna. So I ended up with a bit of a pantry raid. Not a full on binge because it was controlled to an extent, but not well planned either. Dinner was sweet potato and salad. I could have/should have not eaten dinner, I really wasn't hungry, so again, best to just skip the snack. Will try to remember this in the future.

          NEAT yesterday was pretty good. Even though I didn't get all of my steps and stairs I did not sit around either. There were only 2 times during the day in which I sat for a just over an hour, and one of those I was on the floor at work rearranging the lower bookcase storage-so lots of reaching and moving and lifting of stacks of books. 8338 steps and 8 flights of stairs.

          Sleep yesterday continues to follow the trend, around 7 hours of actual sleep and beginning to get longer stretches of actual sleep.

          It is "Chamber of Commerce" weather today (ie. absolutely gorgeous!!!). DH took the day off and we are going to drive out into the Tennessee countryside and hit a local winery and pick up our wine (we are club members there).

          Not fasting today.

            ahhh, yes it is interesting that it is pretty much spot on. My son is exactly the opposite of me as an ISTJ (Severus Snape) and his description is spot on as well. Both of us took the long version of the test, my daughter took it as well, but I can't remember what hers is-but I would guess it is ESFP, I remember DS's because he is opposite. I don't know that DH has ever taken it, but would guess he is an ESTJ.

            I took it the first time in college as part of my Psychology major (that was my first major), then many years later when my children took theirs the first time with a psychologist who was testing them for reading disabilities (dyslexia). Then both of them took it again in high school. What is interesting to me is that the classifications never changed. How extreme they were (basically how strong each characteristic was) shifted, but the classifications stayed the same.

              I am starting to feel like a pusher, wanting everyone to try kombucha.

              • I am pretty sure I am going to go for it and start with continuous brew. So gotta get the vessel then get the scoby and away I go.

                • yesterday...lots of food, no movement, lousy sleep...up 2.2 this morning to 261.4.

                  Food, well I ate a lot. However it was not bingie, though it was high carb. Also, I know that I did not create a surplus of 7,000 calories in one day, so I know that the added weight I see this morning is not fat, I am not concerned. Today is a fast day.

                  NEAT I did not sit around the house, but I did not walk a lot either. We took a long drive in the country and it was great, so no apologies here. 4743 and 4 flights of stairs.

                  Sleep, well we planned to sleep in. I woke up at 7, which is 30 minutes later than normal. I got 7:14 of sleep total with 87% efficiency. However I did have one 3 hour stretch, and 2 that were just over an hour and 2 that were just under, so I felt pretty good.

                  I bought 2 Crepe Myrtles yesterday, fuchsia ones, I will plant today. I also have a bush to transplant and some compost to spread. So there will not be a lot of steps today and tomorrow, but there will be a lot of movement/work. Perfect weather for it!

                  p.s. bought some Kombucha at Whole foods today, starting with 4 ozs, and beginning my search for the perfect vessel to use at home for continuous brewing. I found one online but hoping to find one locally, in case I have issues with it, leaking or whatever.

                  • Ok, very productive morning and I am pooped.

                    Went to church to drop off 3 finished scrapbook pages for the kid's Youth Director who is moving on (luckily he is moving on the Young Adults, so the kids still get him when they are home!). Then to Whole foods.

                    I spent 3 hours gardening. I transplanted a plant that was unhappy in its location, and planted the Crepe Myrtles. I spread some compost, did a little bit of pruning, and a little bit of weeding. Tomorrow I will work on the back yard path. I am growing Creeping Thyme between the stones and I need to trim it off the stones and guide it into the spaces, as well as do a bit more weeding along there.

                    • I have stopped making kombucha.. I miss it. At some point I will start up again.

                      Ok.. the bed setup is making me really want to try it. lol

                      • did you batch brew?

                        On the bed set up, I would tell you to do one piece at a time. When I added the feather bed topper and the memory foam to our pillow top master bed it was too much. It was actually hard to turn over it was too soft. So I took the memory foam off (which luckily my BFF was in the market for) and it is perfect. The problem with it for us is I can still feel him get in and out of bed, and toss and turn, and lately he has started this crazy jerking that feels like he was startled. We need for our mattresses not to touch.

                        The twins were just straight up no pillow top. That room is also off by itself and, except for the dogs next door, you can't hear street noises or the creaks and groans of the house up there. So the combo of a great bed and the quiet and dark (our bedrooms have black out linings on the blinds), cool room make it a wonderful sleep environment!

                        • I did rotating batch brew where I always had at least 1 "cooking" and one in the fridge ready to go. Then, you know.. life happens and my organization goes to squat. LOL

                          • I may be totally wrong headed about this, but what I want to do is to put up a gallon in my pantry in a container with a spigot. Then as I take my 8oz glass from the spigot in the morning I add the equivalent amount of sweet tea to the top to keep it brewing and essentially always have a gallon of brewed kombucha. I am not big on the flavorings and just want it straight, plus I don't want to deal with bottling. I just want 8oz of straight kombucha a day.

                            • scale says I am back down 1 to 260.4, today is a non-fasting day. Dinner tonight will be a taco salad. I will likely do a smoothie this afternoon, as I have been jonesing for some pumpkin something desserty and the smoothie will fill that bill reasonably.

                              Food yesterday went very well. It was a fast day and I got 514 calories, 15 of which were the Kombucha. I had a rough time in the afternoon after all that yard work, I was looking for food. So I just got on the couch and listened to my Paul McKenna meditation, and played a few games of Word with Friends, then went on with my day. I did not snack and just held out for dinner. I call that very successful.

                              NEAT yesterday was very good as well. My steps and stairs do not tell the whole story though. I had 7671 steps and 8 flights of stairs, but also had 3 hours of heavy gardening. And the graph on the fitbit shows that I didn't sit for longer than an hour straight for any period during the day!

                              Sleep yesterday was very good as well, which I am sure was helpful in creating a successful day. 6:31 asleep 93% efficiency, but I woke up without an alarm, and had 2 stretches of 2.5 hours each, and one over an hour, so I had a chance to get in some deep sleep.

                              Today I have some more gardening I want to do, as well as finish rolling the cake balls this morning-well before the witching hour, and laundry this afternoon.

                              • I used to do the whole bottling thing (what a pain the the arse). I have 3 gallon jars so when I am doing the kombucha thing I always have at least one brewing. I love a jug in the fridge (it just goes so fast though!) although, your idea seems an easier production.
