P, this is what mentioned the ratio. I think the user tigerfire (or is it firetiger?) posted this on her journal. [url=http://criticalmas.com/2012/07/safe-use-of-5-htp-and-l-tyrosine/]Safe Use of 5-HTP and L-Tyrosine[/url] I am going to listen to that presentation this weekend, if I remember. I'm hoping 100 mg of 5-HTP and 1000 mg of L-Tyrosine will go well together for me, as that fits the ratio.[/QUOTE]
I didn't post this but now I'm worried about taking the 5-HTP since I'm not taking L-Tyrosine & am taking Wellbutrin (which acts on dopamine/norephinephrine not serotonin). I need to listen to the whole thing...
I didn't end up taking L-Tyrosine this morning because I felt good, but I should take it anyway to stick to my test plan. Will do tomorrow.
Last night was great. Hulky and I went out to a local bar with his brother. I've driven and walked past the bar hundreds of times throughout my life; it's just down the street from my parents' church (the one I went to growing up). Really great vibe there, dart boards, and awesome bartenders. We ran into a British guy that Hulky & his brother had met a couple weeks prior on a night out and played darts with him and his buddies. I hope we run into them again. I had a Guinness Stew (SO GOOD) and some fries at the bar, plus a few drinks. My toes aren't that bad this morning. I did have a headache when I woke up though. I suffered through some painful pressure (like bloat that could not escape and actually make my abdomen expand visibly) after the first drink (White Russian) that only subsided over time.
Hulky and I are making pizzas tonight. I made a dough from almond and coconut flour (almost out of both, not sure I can use what's left because they are such small amounts), we'll see how it comes out.
[B]Need input on food:[/B] I have some terrible pork chops, really bad cuts with some bone. I was thinking of trying to destroy them in the slow cooker. Simple recipe/dinner suggestions? Or maybe for lunches. We need more meat anyway.
Toss the cheap chops in the crock pot with a jar of sauerkraut. Good fermented food stuffs and it should tenderize the meat. Just do not eat too much and pull a Rivven. ;)
If you cook the cultures you kills them.
No need for real cultured kraut to cook with.
Any old jar would do...
That said I'd rather spice my chops up and cook them separate from the sauer, low and slow... then condiment with a pile of cultured kraut.
[QUOTE=namelesswonder;1199599]I can't afford classes or videos. The cycling is still plenty difficult and great exercise for me, definitely a mood booster, but I haven't been able to do it much this week because of major thunderstorm threats. So far, no rain today, but it looks bad. Tomorrow says 90% chance, today was 60%.
I only cycled to work consistently for 4 days in a row last week. It is too early to say if that would be enough to rule out the 5-HTP altogther, but I doubt it.[/QUOTE]
hey you :)

maybe it helps
I think I'm more inclined to destroy it with 'kraut than apply after the fact. Hulky would not like the 'kraut uncooked. I've had this jar in the fridge for over a month, it's VERY strong now. I don't know if I have enough for the recipes I'm seeing... not sure I want to buy a whole 'nother jar. We'll see. I need to get more groceries today or tomorrow anyway. No work tomorrow, woohoo!
BloodOrchid, I shall check those out! I am feeling very blegh about instructional videos these days, but I should really be moving more.

[QUOTE=namelesswonder;1200419]Something about my legs was just really distracting last night.
This might be Restless Leg Syndrome, which can contribute to poor sleep. A good magnesium supplement like Liquid Calm helps me. :)
Kalli, I used to have RLS-like symptoms, but not for a long time. It was definitely a similar feeling. Magnesium is one of those regular supplements I have never gotten into my regimen! I'll try to remember it when I'm next placing orders.
P, I'll check it out!

I just started these too. They are really fun! I feel so accomplished when I move on the next.
