Sedentary lifestyle (short journal time)

anarchist's picture

This is just a quick update, since I have to do my homework.

I just went on a walk with my mother, and we made an agreement that, since my current diet is so terrible, and since she's the healthiest human being I know, she will select what I eat based on her own standards now. So this is exciting.

Unfortunately, she said I'll have to be the one to convince my father to take me to the gym again to exercise. If not, I'll see if I can ride my bike or something, like she always does.

Do you realize you have 5 slots on the sidebar?

If you have a small update, just edit it in to your old journal. Don't clog it all up, jeez.

Also, eating healthy sounds shitty, but it's actually pretty delicious if you know what you're doing. So I hope your mom is a good cook as well as healthy!

That's redick!

Oh my god.

I need to stop making all these short entries.

My mother has a lot of experience with eating healthy (and she watches a lot of Jamie Oliver), so she knows what's good. And she is a very good cook.

I already started with our plan today. We had broccoli chicken with rice. Pretty delicious.

I love rice!

Rice is so versatile and delicious. My parents don't like it, though, or most healthy foods... guh.
You're lucky that your mom can cook AND makes healthy food. Totally jealous.

I used to hate rice.

And broccoli. But recently I've just stopped giving a fuck. I'm a lot less picky about what I eat.

And I don't think rice is delicious. It's just a tasteless grain that's used to soak up spices, and the juices of other food. It's like potatoes.

But yeah, I'm really looking forward to what she has planned. Unfortunately, she's gone the whole time I'm home on weekends, so I'll have to heat it up. Which usually sucks.

Your rice is tasteless?

Apparently not eating the right rice!

(I don't like potatoes either. Red potatoes are alright and purple potatoes are much better than traditional white ones, though.)

The truth is...

...that most "white" rice is useless: devoid of nutrients. Brown and unpolished native and wild rices are far more nutritious, but not easy to find (particularly in so-called family restaurants). :(

Basmati rice,

has a nutty flavor to it, but yeah, I use rice to offset my spicy/hot stir fries. But Elph is right, rice is simply all carbs. I love Yukon Gold potato's.
It's all about what you add to them to make them taste better. The home fries I make on Sunday's are pretty killer. I could give you a recipe for outstanding mash potato's too.

Well...

Carbs shouldn't be used standalone like that.

The issue is simple carbs like white rice, flours, etc.

Complex carbs are all vegetables, brown rice, etc.

People always say carbs when they mean simple carbs.

What did you mean,

by standalone? Sorry about the generality of my carb comment. I'm a decent cook, but not a nutritionist.

jeff's picture

Standalone...

meaning not modified by simple or complex.

Simple carbs (white rice, white sugar, white flour) aren't good for you. But complex carbs are perfectly fine.

A lot of people just refer to all simple carbs as "carbs," but then it makes it sound like fruit, veggies and whole grains are also bad, as they are also carbs.

Thanks,

For the clarification. I don't worry about that too much, because I tend to burn calories through physical activity. However, I do remember my father having to be careful with all of the above because of Diabetes. Regardless of what type of carb, I think they all eventually convert to sugar, no?

jeff's picture

Eventually, yes...

But simple convert quickly and have no nutritional value and spike sugar levels, whereas complex burn slower, contain fiber and other nutrients, and make you feel full longer.

Technically...

I should have the software figuring that out, and just only display unique users on there, so add a new journal, the others disappear, etc. Someday... will take a while from my NYC move before I figure out my budget and where an Oasis update fits into all of that, etc. ;-)

Draco's comment and this response...

leaves me confused! Truly!

What is the actual complaint... and the currently-available "solution" Draco is advising? Or... the "even better" solution that's been in the works... for how many years now?

Is money the only obstacle?

jeff's picture

The complaint...

... is that when people make many journals, on the front page of the site, when other people come online to see who has written a new journal, they can't see who has written lately, because the recent journals thing says anarchist 5 times. So other new journal writers are bumped off the front page as a result.

Yes, money is the sole obstacle. And getting adrian to prep the site for someone to update, although he might be relieved if that were to occur. I'm thinking of doing a kickstarter soon, though. If I don't make any money on Oasis, seems easy enough to raise money from people to update it. Or I can try and find a new gay geek who will perform services for free, as per usual.

Adrian?

He's still around? He hasn't even been on the web site in five years.

jeff's picture

He still...

restarts it when it crashes and behind the scenes stuff like that.

...

Leave him alone! This is a free country and he can make five journal entries if he wants to!

swimmerguy's picture

I don't think she was just planning on stopping him

Only, since this is a free country, she has the right to express her many words of disapproval towards his actions and hope he reforms on his own right. He might just post more just to spite her, because, once again, this is a free country :P

anarchist's picture

Nah.

I don't do things out of spite like that. That's something my father would do.

Dracofangxxx's picture

Why are you,

#1, yelling at me
#2 not even replying to my comment directly
#3 not even replying to the journal at hand?

A+ commentary, darling ;)

I think I've convinced my father to take me to the gym.

Ferk yer!

elph's picture

Great!

Anyway... the swimming pool would be your best site.

And... if you are undeservedly lucky... there might even be some under-18 eye candy as well! One lives in hope. :)

But... your father still has to take you... not holding your hand, I'd hope!

Swimming is mean to me.

I can only do one lap of breast stroke and I'm out of breath. Fucking swimming.

Running to Chelsea Grin is so bad-ass.

I felt like I was killing someone. It was fucking awesome.
