Pill Popper

I’ve been improving my supplementation situation lately. Now I’m popping so many pills a day, it’s weird. It seems like a lot, but it’s not actually much. Mostly high quality basics but the doses are moderate. As I mentioned before, I’m taking some stuff for bone and joint health (Glucosamine, D, Calcium, Magnesium), and two grams of fish oil a day for some EPA/DHA. I’ve added some Zinc as well. It was looking like I was chronically low on D and Zinc, so this should shore up that weakness. Regarding Vitamin D, I saw a news item yesterday showing 1000 UI of Vitamin D3 a day can dramatically slash your cancer risk. I just happen to be taking 1000 UI of D3 a day, so jolly good news.

I also used a Xmas gift certificate to get some exercise gear. I got some weights and a rebounder for cardio. I did 10 minutes on the rebounder and was half dead. I think it’s gonna do wonders for my cardio, and obviously I need it badly. The dumbells should help too as the pushups and crunches were just not doing the trick anymore.

Aside from that, I’ve been enjoying my week off by lollygagging about in my pj’s, playing some online poker, and sneaking in some work each day because I’m a workaholic, and I need my fix.

MR had a peek at the CRON-O-Meter and gave me some good feedback. I’m working a bit on it today, and should have a new build done this weekend with a bunch of bug fixes and improvements… Assuming I don’t get too lazy.

We made Spelt-Pancakes for breakfast this morning. Not the best CR breakfast, but as far as pancakes go … quite nutritious:

Aaron’s Spelt Pancakes
2 tablespoons of regular flour
1/2 cup whole spelt flour
1/4 cup of milk or soy milk
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
1 cup of plain or vanilla yogourt
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon stevia sweetener
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix, add a little water if it’s too think and cook in pan on medium heat. Flip when top starts to bubble. Makes 8 small pancakes.

We used a low-calorie syrup made from white grapes that was, in my opinion, tastier than anything Auntie Jemima ever concocted.

    I want to find my motivation to code on other things again — It was great working on CRON-O-Meter…

    Hopefully, I can get that shit together again and make a useful contribution.

    By the way, those image-based captchas you have on the posting screen are great… except that even if I ask it to remember me, I still get them. Kind of annoying.

    Also, why is this post dated 10 December?

    apr0n: if you have any unbiased information sources on hemp hearts, please let me know what you find out. if they’re as good as the propaganda, my sister has a connection to a guy in Lethbridge who produces them.
