Last week I even gave you a really nice peanut butter popcorn recipe to celebrate your new training goal. My friend, Andrea from Andrea's Easy Vegan Cooking Blog is the only reader who made a commitment. She committed to use her Whirly Pop more.
Remember I gave you a list of my assets/accomplishments along with a list of possible training obstacles? Remember when I included on my asset list that I haven't done any mind altering drugs in about 30 years. Well that is not particularly true. Sure I feel really good from all the endorphins I receive from working out and sure I feel really great on a plant strong diet. I forgot to mention that I take SSRIs. I used to need my SSRI and my SSDI, but since I take my SSRI regularly I don't need my SSDI. This almost makes me happy. Truth be told an SSRI is really more biochemical and would not be in the same category as mind altering hallucinogens from days of yore.
My friend John from Detour Cafe in Berkeley surprised me with this humdinger of a green drink. Thank you John. Green drinks are perfect before or after a work out, and I am quite fond of them, since they remind me of radium. They are also packed with nutrients.
John mixed a handful of spinach, a handful of kale, some apple juice and peach juice, blueberries, and banana. It was delicious and powerful.

Strap me in this green stuff is potent!
I am still eating a lot of kale and this brings the inflammation down.
If you are having a hard time getting a jump start on any exercise program, or just want to up the ante here is my training tip for today.
Before you shower or brush your teeth, choose three exercises to do.
For example, choose 15-25 jumping jacks, 15-25 sit ups, and 15-25 leg lifts. Now do these before each shower, or tooth brushing session. Go ahead. Before you know it, you will see some results, unless of course you never shower or brush your teeth, in that case you will not see any results whatsoever. Although you might look a little gummy.
Good hygiene is as important as clean eating.
Now get moving and flossing.
