Ugh, turns out I bought the wrong ink Cartridges, opened them put them in the printer only to find out they were not the right one, only 35 minutes to run to Wal-mart, before my next conference call, what to do, what to do… get moving last-minute trip to Wally World, had to explain to them that I purchased the wrong Cartridge this past Saturday, anyway I got lucky, they let me exchange, I’m thinking whew. So I make it back home with 5 ins to spare, but now I’m home taking conference calls, and trying to get my homework together before my Class, which is in just a few hours… #ILearn’t2Day

Morning… Here’s my Absolution 2 Free My Mind (A2FMM) … I have been suffering with shoulder problems over the past 3 months.  As a result my workouts have been impacted big time.  My dreams and plans on where I would be in my fitness game on this day and time are way of track, but in the back of my mind I keep hearing Dee say, “stay the course”.

See, Dee and I go way back.  She has more than once told me to step, step, step, even when I didn’t think I had a step left in me.  Anyway back to the situation at hand.

I went for a Nerve Study on yesterday to hopefully get to the cause of this persistent pain I’m having.  I was greeted by a very nice and carrying PA.  Little did I know, I would have to get on the scale.  See I weighed myself on 1/1/13, and vowed to not look at the scale again until 4/1/13.  Well to my surprise, the scale has tipped to the right 😦 by a complete 5lbs.

Now I’m in my kitchen, haven whipped up 2 batches of fruit & veggie smoothies, wpid-1358337724347.jpgboiled 8 eggs, cooked 4 turkey burgers, and steamed a head of cabbage, all by 7am.wpid-IMAG0039.jpg

I may not be able to workout but I surely can ensure that I try to eat right.

Guess what Dee?  I’m staying the course!

Trying to work, but slightly distracted, I’m thinking all kinds of things, the reality of it all is I have a ton of work to do today, but can’t seem to get in gear.

My morning start was great, wiimageth a group of great ladies, 3.5 miles of pavement, of which I ran, sshh, 3/4th of, 240 squats, nice green tea something, something Smoothie 🙂  then shower and start my day.

Well some 4hrs later, I find myself sitting, staring, drifting away, and my new project is yet to get underway….

As I sit and stare out my office window ….. Morning World, how the heck are you?

so I guess y’all not talking to me today huh… fine with me, I need a Rib of Celery and a handful of parsley, somebody, anybody…. also, I have never used fresh ginger before, what do I do to it…. it looks scary

Have you ever thought about it, you find a great recipe, you get all the ingredients together, then you think to yourself, I have never in my life used Ginger Root, before, so now what?  So I put it out there to the universe, and then out of no where a slew of comments come to the rescue…

What are you trying to do?

  • Trying a new smoothie… I mean do you wash ginger, do you peel it, just what the heck is the part you eat vs discard… it looks flaky hard, ijs Ginger and Fruits

Yea what do you want to do with it? I love fresh ginger

  • what the heck is a half pinch of ginger… guess I should have bought it already ground up, instead of ginger root… help

Yea that sounds like a ground ginger measurement. Usually with ginger root the recipe will call for a 1 inch piece or “small knub”…don’t use a knife to peel it, all it takes is a spoon, trust me

Are you making juice with it? If so then you don’t have to peel it…..

ginger is realllllyyyy strong, so just use a little. it will be trial and error. dont peel it, just slice it.

I chop it in my blender add hot water, let it sit for a day then strain and sweeten with sugar.

  • this root was expensive, gone have to use it, don’t peel it, wait, so just slice a small piece of it.. ok, got it, now… off I go, thanks all

Be careful Ginger is strong/nasty

  • geesh, now I’m scared, why is nasty… I’m confused, is it good or is it nasty????

Try it for yourself….

It’s potent–you don’t need a lot! A little goes a long way!

Lol I cook with fresh ginger haven’t tried it in a smoothie. In Kenya the tea drinkers(milk,water&tea leaves cooked on stove) add ginger in there it smells so good lol

So, what’s a girl to do…. Let me hear from you… and one last question, What’s the Best Way to Store Ginger?????  #A2FMM…

Have you eve thought about it… what you ask, why you decide to leave a conversation, that’s what the question is?

Many of us have been known to leave the conversation, check out, walk out, run out, sneak out, or excuse ourselves out.

Be it via, phone, chat, face to face, what ever method, we will just see our way out.  Sometimes we are placed in a conversation where we clearly don’t belong, or just don’t fit in.  We sometimes leave the other person thinking will they respond, wait, what, did I day something wrong, and then there are times when 4we know the conversation is over. At other times, we stick around in the conversation just for the name sake, we don’t want to be the one who did not listed, or we just don’t want to miss out on what is being said.

Is it because someone is just speaking over you and not at you, or just speaking and not debating,  or as I heard one say, just “opening up” or expressing a point of view simply for the sake of doing so, and it having no relevance to the conversation itself, have you done, this, I know I surely have.

One final questions…. How do you think it is perceived when you check, out, leave the conversation?  After all you don’t have to engage ever conversation you are invited into… FFT 🙂

Come on weigh in, others want to hear from you…. after all this is Absolution to Free My Mind (Yours included)

Chapter 2013, Page 5 of 365 – Anger: is the most volatile form of emotion you can ever burden yourself with. Every bit of anger you hold on to damages your soul. Whenever you feel angry, remember that the person you are hurting is yourself.
