are the seeds soft or hard?
are the seeds soft or hard?
I find them hard to describe. I guess I would say they are soft/slightly gelatinous on the outside. If you actually bite down on some they have a slight crunch to them, but not hard.
Doesn't sound at all appealing................ I will stay with the no-seeded drinks
I believe fall has arrived in Oregon. Yuck........... my least favorite season. Lots of clean up and then everything goes dormant for the long winter ahead. To me - it feels like the world of plants and greenness and blooming things goes to sleep from October to April - and we have to stay awake and go on with our lives. Fall and winter make me sad.
Seems like you were just getting ready for spring......

I vow to spend this fall and winter working on my goal of health and wellness. By boating season of 2014 I want to be at my goal weight and I want to be stronger and have more stamina.
That gives me 33 weeks to take off 45 pounds. Its doable..... about 1.5 pounds per week. I think once my gut is fully healed and with the help of the bio-identical hormones I can do this. Appointment with doctor Oct 1st. Fingers crossed. I need to step up my workouts........ I've gone 2 weeks now without doing anything. I have to get back to daily routines. I will start reporting again here what I'm doing.
I decided after having that cup of coffee yesterday morning that I won't be doing coffee again. First, it caused my bowels to work overtime. Second, I had a caffeine reaction that was not pleasant (jittery and unable to think clearly, even messed up my fine motor skills for a bit, and caused some serious cramping in my hands). Third, I don't like it black and I don't want to bring sweeteners and fake creamer back into my life. Not that I'm 100% sugar free --- but I don't intentionally add it to anything, I just get it in the occasional use of condiments or the nibbles of m&m's. M&m's are going back on my don't list. I'm getting into the habit of having a few daily - that's a slippery slop. I'm out of cashews and am not going to buy more because I have on some days eaten 4 ounces throughout the course of the day............ that's a whopping 650 calories!!!! I always count these calories in my daily totals - but still! Those are calories I could be using to eat another entire meal - not just nibbling at throughout the day. I need to cut out the snacking completely. I seem to move from one snack obsession to another. I've done dark chocolate, pork rinds, cream cheese clouds, mixed nuts, corn chips, and cashews. I could allow myself 1 ounce of cashews per day. That's about 8 whole nuts. But as with anything........... once I get started I don't know where to find the brake pedal! I am certainly using food as a form of comfort and fulfillment - but why? I need to find out why I use food to fill a void - what that void is -- and how to fill it with something healthy and appropriate.
My gut is still doing good The caffeine clean out yesterday was annoying but not diarrhea and not painful at all. So, I have now gone 10 days with no pain and diarrhea. I'm very happy about this!
There are a couple of projects that I had planned to do this summer and didn't finish them. I'm not happy with myself about that. I have a really hard time starting projects when I don't have the entire day to work on them - so I tend to not start things at all. Not a personality trait I would choose to have.
Okay............ I've done 120 jump ropes, and 50 leg presses at 100# on the bowflex. And then I rode 3.5 miles on my bike.
now.......... time for some breakfast and then shower and work.
I dislike fall too. All my neighbors have huge trees and it seems like all their leaves fall/blow into my yard. It doesn't help that most of them aren't big on yard work.
I have no trees by design. Raking and even blowing, basically one handed, is a pain in the butt.
I love all the seasons!! Although down here in south texas we only have two seasons...hot & hotter!! lol. Not really. I love the fall...the air starts to get a little crisper...the leaves start to change their color...mother earth is winding down for a nice long recuperative rest. I love winter...I always feel better in the winter. Don't know why! I loved the snow when I was young & we lived up north for a time. There is nothing more peaceful than softly falling snow in the woods!! Been a long long time since I've seen it tho. When baby boy was little I used to decorate the house for the seasons & the holidays. This house is just to tiny to do much decorating...with the exception of a wreath on the door...& I only do that at Christmas now. *sigh*
Your goal certainly is doable!!! You're gonna do it!!
Goal: Don't worry be happy!
Okay -- I'll try the Chia Seed Kombucha. (maybe)
