I'll have to check the farmers market out by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #1 Sat Jun 16, 2007 at 06:00:40 AM EST
It's just down the road for me also.

And I agree wholeheartedly with respect to the giant-fricking-animated T-rex. woohoo!. Also, the Dresden being made a Warden is super awesome and amusing just for the, in subsequent books, frequent self-conflict he has with it. As for the hand, you may like what the hand injury triggers in Dresden and the story line, even if it seems a bit cliche at the moment.

As for farmer's markets, we really need to start going to one more often..

Never been to a farmers market by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Jun 18, 2007 at 12:56:39 AM EST
Because they're always on Saturday mornings, and I'm always in bed on a Saturday morning. I bet they're pretty good though.

Quick diet fix - thought of replacing the meat with fish? I've been doing that and it seems to work quite well. You're not going hungry but you're not taking in as much fat either. Still have meat once or twice a week though.

It's political correctness gone mad!

We've been using Riverford for meat and vegetables the last couple of months.  You get no choice on what stuff you get, but the smug satisfaction that it's mostly organic and has less miles on it.

The veggies are very good, the meat is excellent.  You actually get a nice gravy out of the roasts - no water is injected to puff it all up.

what is the underlying motivation for ODGF?

Operation Don't Get Fatter by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #6 Mon Jun 18, 2007 at 08:20:12 AM EST
The motivation is: to not get fatter. Doesn't seem to be working at the moment though...

Is not getting fatter motivation enough? by Dr H0ffm4n (2.00 / 0) #7 Tue Jun 19, 2007 at 04:14:32 AM EST
Why don't you want to get fatter? How do you measure the balance of the benefits of not getting fatter against the suffering you endure in your methods?

I'm honestly not trying to bait you, but am genuinely interested in motivation to endure things one doesn't enjoy.

I'm not sure it can really be described as sufferi by TheophileEscargot (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Jun 19, 2007 at 09:46:17 AM EST
The weekly food and exercise list doesn't really show a great deal of hardship. 5BX exercises take 11 minutes, and the dumb-bell exercises take about 45.

I'm sure we've been through this before. The principle benefits are:
1. Convenience: being able to run faster, walk around for longer, sweat less on the Tube.
2. Health
3. Aesthetics

Also, it's no harder to maintain weight at a moderate level than a high level. I would still have to eat the same number of calories to maintain a weight of say 15 stone; but I'd be less able to burn them through exercise, and would have to contend with the comedy value of being fat and asking for diet coke and low-calories food...
