Gotcha. You must be pretty serious about it.

As retirement nears my spending habits are changing.

Rob,

 

Did WADOL allow you to retain the personalized plates for possible future use?

Yes I have them.

I forgot to post up on the KR handling package ride. The ride is slightly stiffer and feels more like on rails than it did before. On a old rough freeway at about 80 MPH the car used to wonder around back and forth a bit. This is much improved. The car corners much better too. Feels tighter.

 

My time using the car was great the last 10 days. Now my employer is sending me back to San Jose to work. I was not anticipating this. I thought I was all done there, but they want me to help close out the job.

 

Tony - Are you going to be in San Jose this month ?

Started a 7 day diet cleanse yesterday. The Cabbage soup diet. This is going to be my kick-start to getting back to my desired weight. 7 months eating at the hotel all you can eat carbeteria slapped on 12 pounds. After the 7 day cleanse I am making some changes to my eating habits. Tana is doing this with me.

Yesterday I cooked up 3 Gallons of this soup mix:

Recipe:

The cabbage soup can be eaten at any time you feel hungry during the day, and you can eat as much as you wish as often as you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Large Can Diced Tomatoes
  • 6 Stalks Celery
  • 1 Large Onion - Chopped
  • 1-2 Cubes of Bouillon (if desired)
  • 1 head cabbage. A nice, big green one.
  • 48 oz. of V-8 Juice (low sodium works best)
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil (no more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Cut vegetables into small pieces. Saute the onion in the olive oil for two minutes, then add the celery and peppers and saute for 4 minutes more. Then cover with the water and V-8 juice. If you want the bouillon add it now. Add the hot sauce and tomatoes.

Bring the whole mixture (which now includes everything but the cabbage) to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking until vegetables are tender (about 30 minutes to an hour depending on how large you cut the celery).

Core the cabbage (take the stem out of it). Shred the cabbage and then add the cabbage and cook for another 10 minutes. Adding the cabbage near the end preserves some of its nutritional content and keeps your kitchen from smelling like a latrine.

During the Cabbage Soup Diet you can eat as much of this soup as you want, whenever you want it. Eat it all day and night if you want.



Here is what we are eating for the next 7 days:



Diet Plan:

Day One:

Fruit: Eat all of the fruit you want (EXCEPT BANANAS). Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water.

Day Two:

Vegetables: Eat until you are stuffed will all fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup. At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today.

Day Three:

Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits (but not bananas) and vegetables you want. NO BAKED POTATO.

Day Four:

Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets.

Day Five:

Beef And Tomatos: Ten to twenty ounces of beef and up to six fresh tomtoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat broiled or baked chicken instead of beef (but absolutely no skin-on chicken). If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef one one of the beef days (but not both).

Day Six:

Beef and Vegetables. Eat to your heart's content of beef and vegetables this day. You can even have 2 or 3 steaks if you like, with leafy green vegetables. NO BAKED POTATO. Eat your soup at least once.

Day Seven:

Brown rice, unsweetened fruit juices and vegetables: Again STUFF,STUFF,STUFF yourself. Be sure to eat your soup at least once this day.

I went the opposite direction yesterday. Taco Bell for lunch with 3 meximelts/two gordita supremes and then Mexican for dinner with chicken fajitas, chips & queso, and BEER.

 

Must say I'm paying for that move this AM...... time to go hope on the mountain bike and crank out a bunch of miles.

Help Rob - I'm stuck on day six and can't seem to make it to any other day :lol:

 

Serious now - looks like a good plan - good to have a partner like Tana to let you in the kitchen for one and to join in on the cleansing diet with you.

 

(Please don't make Tana's kitchen smell like a latrine Rob) and make sure to clean up the kitchen after you're done in there. :rob_grabber:

Tana & I have are each down 2 pounds in 2 days. We both attended our Sat. Boot Camp fitness training group exercise class yesterday @ 24 Hour Fitness. Just had a big bowl of the soup and having black coffee. Then it's time for a run before we go to church. I put the outside Christmas decorations up yesterday and today we will put our tree up. Being "Empty Nesters" this year is going to be different. Our Little dog Harley is going to get a special stocking and lots of morning attention this year. lol

Grabber, I don’t know you and I am not trying to butt in on your diet. I used to run about 20 to 30 miles per week for years and competed in 5k races. I will advise you that eating as much fruits and vegetables as you are in regard your 7 day diet (cleanse) and then eating 8 bananas in one day on top of what you are eating can throw you in to a condition known as hyperkalemia (too much potassium in the blood). Doing so can cause dangerous heart arrhythmias and can trigger cardiac arrest. You also need to be balancing out your magnesium and calcium intake because high potassium can make your body deplete these other minerals. A balanced level of potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium is essential for proper heart function.... especially if you are in training.
