    Okay
    -looking into audiobooks (gotta keep it free or cheap) - would be awkward to run with my Kindle =P so I'll have to see what I can put on my iPod or Android phone (downloading Audible app now). I hate carrying things while running, but I may have an armband somewhere...
    -going to run around the field near my apartment, as long as there aren't too many people there, which might get boring but should be less stressful on my body (as opposed to paved trail)
    -Historically, I hate the morning, but as long as I sleep well (i.e. get to bed on time), I think I can manage morning runs. It's only 20-30 minutes anyway.

    Also, kefir is advised against on SCD until you've been tolerating some other kind of yogurt for a while. It's much stronger and has different bacterial content.

    Just looked up "Under the Dome" - it looks great!

    Namesless, I have all the GOT audio books. If you want those, let me know

    Also, has anyone watched "Orange is the new Black"? I'm about half way through season one. Not massively impressed.

    GOT is the best and probably a great way to start your Couch 2 5K program! (If you like fantasy, that is.)

    haha, you know, I was thinking about getting the GoT books. I want to know what I'm missing! I'd probably start over with book 2, since I did actually read all of book 1. YB, send me a PM!

    I just finished Orange Is The New Black last night. I enjoyed it. There is such a variety of women characters, I was happy to see something that wasn't totally based off of romantic encounters like most other women-centric shows. I do wonder how accurate to life stuff like the sex & scandals are though. The main character is pretty friggin' obnoxious. I've heard the memoir is okay, much more tame, and the writer is still a WASP and arrogant.

    Yeah, I like how they go into all the peripheral characters' stories, but I do find the main character pretty irritating. I guess it's just so... light?! lol. Compared to the shit I usually watch it's like Disney I'll prob watch the whole series though.

    I alternated reading GOT with listening to the audio books - loved them!

    I was going to suggest you start with sauerkraut juice. Think it would be wise to stay away from dairy esp. given your allergies. I tried it for some time but I think other variables were getting in my way... I'd like to try it again, though.
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

    Zzzoooooooommm

    RunKeeper is a nice app. I can incorporate music (started listening to A Clash of Kings, thanks YB), set a timer so it tells me when to stop my running session, and with the GPS, it will track my actual route, including speed, distance, elevation, AND there are graphs! This is what I really wanted out of Fitocracy. I love all the data on it. The only thing I'm worried about is racking up data charges by using the GPS. I even tracked my cycling route this morning! Let me know if you're on RunKeeper so I can have friends .

    I went for my first C25k jog this morning, alternating 90 sec of jogging with 120 sec of walking. I had to keep checking my watch for the 90 sec, and then set a timer on it for 2 min while walking. I'm thinking about spending the $2 for the Couch to 5k app so I can have it tell me when to walk & run, because checking my watch was kind of annoying. Of course, RunKeeper is good for other things and this would be limited to running, so I don't know.

    I AM SO ENERGIZED HOLY CRAP. Maybe it's the Eleuthero root I took this morning. Maybe it was the jogging and then the cycling. My cycling trip felt pretty good. I made fairly good time, I felt like I was working hard without over-working and my right leg didn't feel nearly as tight after running. I think that helped stretch out my hamstrings. I DID stretch after running, but did not stretch after cycling because I always forget. My right ankle was kind of wobbly when I was running on the grass, I had to really focus to try and keep things in a good position. It's going to take some time to build up strength, I think.

    Dinner last night at a local restaurant w/ the in-laws & sister-in-law was good. It's the first "bar" (bar/restaurant) in town that's come in since the liquor licenses got a bit more relaxed. Used to be that there were 0 alcohol sales in this town whatsoever. Now there are 3 liquor stores and restaurants can get liquor licenses from the town, with restrictions. The vibe of the place is weird, kind of a modernized colonial theme. They have a chalkboard from my old elementary school that shows the daily specials, which is kind of cool. The owner saved it from the school before it was demolished before I went into 5th grade. He's had it for a while! I had steak tips for dinner, which came with a little spinach salad & some parmesan fries. I had some fries, but not many. My tummy seemed okay, but I'm back to SCD compliance today. There will be at least a few meals off-plan this weekend while Venus is here.

    Weekend plans
    -Start laundry tonight or tomorrow (want to wash the comforters and some blankets)
    -Pack a bit
    -thrift store/wandering in Central Sq with Venus
    -Maybe a free show at a bar in Harvard Sq Saturday night w/ some friends?
    -Grocery shopping (need some of the things from the meal plan I made so I can start incorporating more foods next week)

    Generally, I don't think things on the forum are "bad" in any way right now, but there are a few big threads with a LOT of negativity. Maybe I'm just a little stressed because I've been too busy to eat lunch yet (I think I can go heat up my soup soon, reached a lull), but I feel on the verge of tears and fairly pathetic just because someone was being a butt-head to me. I don't understand why people seem so happy to stay angry about irrelevant things. I am not good at arguing and I don't want to.

    Great to hear about your energy and being okay deviating from the SCD plan every once in a while. Being so strict and dogmatic can be harmful, I've learned.

    I'm sorry you're upset :/ it's very easy to say things on a forum that one might not say to someone's face and that's probably the most upsetting thing of all. I completely stay out of that crap.
