    I never cared about hotels offering "deep soaking tubs" but now I can really see the advantages. Also thinking that a freestanding tub where there is no wall blocking an arm from hanging over is ideal. I guess once I am smaller in girth, that more of me will be submerged!! Belly sometimes sticks out unless I contort. Don't always have time to run downstairs to the store and buy ice--sometimes I just get in so the motivation window doesn't pass.
    I guess I need to get back into words with friends! Maybe a bathtub pillow thing would be nice, who knows.

    Oh, for the guy who was worried about metal tub, I think it was here and not on the blog, metal tub is okay, it won't get too cold, and your body will warm it up a lot too. Mine is metal and is never cold enough to burn.

    For me, 70 degrees is an ice bath. I don't know why, but 68 degrees is the coldest I've been able to go so far.

    I am doing bath at 68 degrees too. Then I follow with face dunks and arms in the sink at 57 degrees. I think it is important to go at your pace. Your body will tell you if you are acclimating or not. I used to take very hot baths and thought that I could not live without them! So this is a huge progress for me.

    Same here. For the last year, I have been doing 3 hot, epson salt baths a week to get rid of toxins. Guess we are both hot acclimated.

    I LOVE this thing!!! I have one and it works well, BUT my tub is still too shallow! New green building, just built. Conservation in mind with the small shallow tubs (previously hated baths, so never thought about this issue). If we extend our lease for a few more years, I might just have to see about some modifications and/or a portable japanese shaped tub. The bathroom is strangely large enough to put one in...Maybe an ice maker in the meantime.

    I have major issues with gluten and I cannot tolerate Lindt. If I eat chocolate I have to get something that specifically indicates that it is gluten free, dairy free and soy free. Needless to say that is a challenge! The best one I have found in my local market is by Alter Ecco - Blackout Dark Chocolate 85%.

    Shop for ALTER ECO | Dark Blackout 85% Chocolate - Organic | ALTER ECO Dark Blackout Chocolate is intense and powerfully pleasing. With 85% cocoa, just one bite is enough to knock the socks off even the most impassioned chocoholics. It is also strong

    I bought a SCOBY from Cultures for Health. It did not fare very well one the counter in my cold, old drafty house this winter. So I bought a small electric seed starting mat from the garden center and I either set the brew jar on top of the mat or I loosely wrap the mat around the jar. Now my kombucha is doing great - tons of little beasties and no residual sugar - tastes a lot like ACV.

    If I were you I would get the seed mat and try again with another bottle from the market. I bought some "High Country Wild Root Kombucha" (who comes up with these names?) and started a nice culture with that. I tried that one because the bottles had little baby cultures visibly growing in the bottle.
