    Chatty, glad to inspire. I must confess, it was just what happens in the normal course of a day, although I have at times used my stairs for actual exercise.

    The other night I was lying in bed and ended up doing a number of gentle exercises. Lay on my stomach, back, both sides, and lifted up what could be lifted, pushed up what could be pushed up, all the half-remembered exercises I've done over the years. It was actually kind of fun. And seeing as I want to start any form of strength training slowly and cautiously, that was as good a start as any, I suppose.

    They shouldn't have been allowed to put Mandoline on the package. It was actually just a V-slicer with a single blade, as I discovered after I ripped the packaging open. Grrr. Oh well, it wasn't expensive, and I can make use of it, but I'll still have to get one that can shred and then this one will be redundant. One of my kids will be happy...

    Slow, gentle day here today. I need it after all the running around and socializing of the last couple of weeks. (To think I used to be able to add that kind of thing on top of a full day...)

    Both my mother and SIL have been asking questions about primal. My mother doesn't need to lose weight, but is looking for extra energy. She wants to feel like she's 20... Why not?

    Glad to see you're taking it easy today. And bummer on the slicer mishap! I wonder why its called a Mandoline - I have always called them graters - cuz its grates things. I think when all these gourmet cooking shows got so popular the common names of things got forgotten.

    I wish I could get some of the people in my family interested in eating more like I do, and less like they do! Hope it works out for you with your mom and SIL. That would be awesome!

    Almost, yup. The experiment is looking good. I'm sure I'll go on a bit longer, and then try the plate of pasta experiment. But I think I'll wait a couple of more weeks for that.

    Okay, today's report. I don't think I'll be snacking any more. And I never thought I'd say this, but chocolate just doesn't seem to do it for me anymore.

    Health journal May 14, 2012

    Sleep: 7.5 hours

    Weight: ? Not weighing myself for a while. It's discouraging and distracting me.

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: Gr. yogurt, hempseed, flaxseed, walnuts, blackberries
    Lunch: banana with almond butter
    Supper: leftover BAS with leftover curried salmon and mayo
    Snacks: 20g dark chocolate, handful macadamia nuts

    Exercise: None today. Probably would have done me some good.

    Activities: lots and lots and lots of hand dishes. Emptied dishwasher. It's a cruddy dishwasher, so every item has to be checked and the gritty things soaked and finished up by hand. I didn't know about builder's grade appliances when I got this house...

    Your mandoline didn't come with attachment spacers that go under the V blade? Mine did. What brand did you get? Mine came with a whole mess of spacers to put in the thing for different thicknesses and has two spacers that either cube (think french fries) or juliennes (think zuccini noodles). Maybe you can get attachments/accessories with yours to do the same?

    PS I LOVE the card your kids wrote for you. That's hilarious and something we would say to our parents.

    My mandolin slicer has a straight blade and 5 attachements for thin, medium and thick slices and 2 cube/string sizes too. But it doesn't grate stuff. Very handy bit of kitchen kit and after a mishap or two from being 'smart' and not using the pusher I am now very careful with it. My fingers eventually healed up!

    Love the card comment!

    I could have written this - I got mine second hand and it didn't come with the pusher, after having some slices of skin in my veggies I just bought one .

    No, no extra attachments. Apparently Starfrit makes two models and I got the low-end one, not realizing there were two types. Brother. No place to put attachments either. I'll just have to look for a better one.

    Yeah, my kids are pretty off-the-wall. They get that from me. My poor husband. He is so conventional, but at the same time, he tends to hang out with unique types. I don't quite get it. It's all that creativity he hides beneath his conservative exterior, I guess.

    A migraine hit me last night soon after I posted here. Blech. Fortunately, I don't usually experience a lot of pain, but that means I woke up this morning feeling both refreshed from enough sleep and limp from the migraine aftermath. It's a very strange combination. Another slow day in store, when I had hoped to be up and running today.

    Ugh for migraines! Those suck. I hope you get past the migraine hangover quickly.

    Mandolin: I don't like the pusher that came with mine, so I tend not to use it. I try to be mindful of where my fingers are in relation to the blades and go slowly when I reach the end of a veggie. Luckily (*knock on wood*) no cut fingers yet.

    I sympathise witht the migraines. I always (a) woke up in the middle of the night after one - no doubt because i had slept most of the day, and (b) felt totally washed out and limp for most of the next day. At least it is gone Judg.
