Congratulations Church Lady!! You're added to THE LIST. Please provide date and age
if you're so inclined.
After 35 years of Megacorp and 42 years in the work force, enjoy your well-deserved retirement. And what will you do??
Actually, we know what you'll do: BLEND
For those who missed the other thread, Church Lady is an active blender - she's the Smoothie Queen, the Blender Queen - she just throws anything she has in the frig - I mean anything, lettuce, parsley, anything green (but NO raw chard), tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, okra
carrots, squash, pumpkin, radishes, celery, avocados, ginger roots, beets, cranberries with impunity, pecans, sunflower seeds, cashews (but NO toasted almonds), spice it up with cilantro, basil, mint, garlic and onion - and who knows, maybe even left-over Chinese food - add milk but no beer
- she just plops it all into her blender, pushes "high" and whoooosh!! blends everything into, well, some kind of concoction
Her motto - Drink your greens!
Church Lady, here's an idea
why don't you use livesoft's recipe of adding Dr. Pepper to your smoothie concoction and doing crunches with barbells in between sips - and you'll have awesome abs like livesoft
I want to report that oatmeal has given me awesome abs. The trick is not to use a rice cooker, but to cook oatmeal in a microwave using the following procedure:
1. Measure 1/2 c oatmeal, 1/2 c Dr Pepper, 1/2 c water into a large glass microwave-proof bowl and set aside.
2. Go do 25 crunches with barbells in each hand held near your ears.
3. Put the bowl in the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute.
4. While 3 is happening, go do another 25 crunches with barbells.
5. Open microwave and stir oatmeal, then heat on high for another minute.
6. Another set of crunches.
7. Open microwave and stir oatmeal, then heat on high for 30 - 45 seconds.
8. Another set of crunches.
9. Remove oatmeal in bowl from microwave, stir and set aside as it is too hot to eat.
10. Another set of crunches.
11. Check temperature of oatmeal, if too hot, then switch to straight leg lifts (25 in a set, no touching the floor).
12. Repeat step 11 until you can eat the oatmeal.
Putting aside that suggestion, Church Lady we're looking forward to your many financial (and culinary) contributions to our forum in your retirement
