Total random post alert! And has nothing to do with running… you are warned
For as long as I can remember, I’ve needed to watch TV while I am getting ready in the morning. For whatever reason, silence at that time of the day just puts me back to sleep. I used to have a TV in my room which made this easy but since living in my current house, I have been sans bedroom TV because there are no jacks in there and I just don’t have another TV. So to occupy my time in the morning, I have been watching trough seasons of all my favorite TV shows on hulu and Netflix. I’d pretty much exhausted the Netflix options so I cancelled my service with them after 9ish years! (They’ve definitely gone downhill since the good ole days) BUT, I have been really getting into some of the options on hulu!
My last series I watched through was one of my old favorites, The Pretender! I never watched this show when it was on TV for real but I did watch through many episode on TNT when we first got cable in like 2001. I don’t know what it is about this show but I really think it’s one of my all-time favorites But anyways, I could not for the life of me remember how the series ended so I had to go back and watch them all again, of course! I finished the series this week and well… I don’t remember how it ended because it was the worst ending EVER! It just left you hanging in total suspense and it made me so mad. Thank goodness for google though because I quickly entered “the pretender ending” and found there are two movies that they made post-cancellation! I have obviously ordered these and will be watching them as soon as they come although it sounds like not all the answers are reveled in these movies. grrrrrr! But whatever, worst series ending EVER.
Now I am on to watching Angel. I’ve never watched this series but thanks to hulu, that will be changing I’m pretty sure this makes me a huge nerd and that’s just fine.
On a totally unrelated topic, I am currently trying a new “diet” experiment. I’ve had a stomachache pretty much every single day for the last 5+ years and am bound and determined to find something that will help! I’ve been to the doctor and nothing is really, really wrong but it’s just annoying more than anything. So the experiment is to try something called the Blood Type Diet. I’ve heard about this diet before but never really put much faith into it until one of my sister’s co-workers had really good results using it so I figured it’s not going to hurt to try it. It’s not limiting your food by any means, just avoiding certain foods that are supposed to be “poison” for your blood type and add more foods that work as “medicine.” Seems kind of out there but clearly something is not working for me currently…
Since I am O+, that means avoiding coconut, peanut butter, dairy, wheat, corn, avocados and other things as well and eating more kale, spinach, red meat, kelp and sweet potatoes. I already avoid wheat because I know that’s an issue for me but dairy will be missed – very, very much I’m planning to give this a full two weeks of being pretty diligent about it but then you are supposed to only need to obey the rules 80% of the time so that seems pretty doable (so I will get to eat fro-yo and ice cream occasionally!!! – hopefully) so we shall see. I am not too convinced this will do anything but I figure it can’t hurt to try.
I started on Monday and so far I am 2/3 for not feeling like crap so maybe it’s on to something… or it’s just luring me into a false sense of security, one of the two. Yesterday was not a great day but the first two this week, I felt better than I can recall feeling recently… Another good thing, finding new to me food that I really like! Two main ones being figs and okra They both sound weird but I was surprised by how good both are! In fact, baked okra nuggets might just be my new favorite food. (Ketchup is technically outlawed but let’s be honest, ketchup is worth being a little bit sick for )
As you can see, the meals don’t look weird at all and actually look pretty good!
Can you spy someone’s birthday dinner??
If it goes well/fails miserably, I’ll try to post an update in case you are curious or have ever thought about trying it!
Questions: What is/was your favorite TV show? It would be really hard for me to pick just one…
Have you ever tried a random diet? Are they all just a bunch of fluff or do some actually do what they promise? I’ve tried Paleo, South Beach and low fat diets and all have just made my stomach feel worse. Although South Beach did really help me feel better for awhile but zero carbs + running = disastrous bonks all around!
