Read another interesting article on Livestrong.com, The 5 Best Foods You Aren't Eating: Boost Your Health with Every Bite of these Lesser-Known Superfoods. I've already tried Kefir and will next try to make my own. I already have nutritional yeast. I ordered chia and hemp seeds and black garlic. Black garlic is expensive: $10 for two cloves. That was before I discovered you can make your own.

I don't use a lot of eggs but occasionally I could need one for a recipe. For example, right now, to bread the shrimp, so I ordered the Vegg - Vegan Egg Baking Mix - 6.0 Oz (Make Over 48 Large Eggs).

Cardio: five minutes every hour on the Air Walk Trainer to counter the effects of sitting. Steps: 1,492.

One hour organizing and cleaning the kitchen today. Total time: 2 1/2 hours. I removed the fan from the window, cleared the counter of the Pizzaz Plus, ordered some Oxiclean to soak the Pizzaz pan in to degrease it, and set up the Ninja Prep Pro on the counter. I made a white bean and artichoke hummus with the Prep Pro.

Weight keeps going down, partly because of intermittent fasting, partly because I'm not hitting my RDI even on days when I don't fast. My sodium levels are still higher than I'd like because I'm eating my way through a pantry of processed food.

Usually, I don't have problems falling asleep but last night I did, possibly because of a longer than usual nap. Six hours of sleep with vivid dreams, followed by one hour drowsing while listening to podcasts.

Today marks the beginning of what I hope is a sustained and serious effort to organize, de-clutter and clean the apartment. To date, forty-five minute on the kitchen. Organizing things will have the side benefit of getting me moving. Deb writes about putting in 300 steps from the kitchen to the computer when she started her fitness regimen. Hey, I'm THAT guy.

Ran across some panko bread crumbs while organizing cupboards so I got the idea of breading shrimp and baking them. I got a dozen cans of Wild Planet pink shrimp to work my way through.

I'm doing cardio earlier today because I don't want to be on the Air Walk Trainer while watching "Father Brown" and "DCI Banks" tonight on PBS.

Six hours of sleep with one wide-awake episode, followed by two hours of drowsing while listening to podcasts. Temperatures have finally cooled off. Time to take the fans out of the windows. Can you believe I ran the bedroom fan last night?

Read
an interesting article on LiveStrong.com about making your own protein powder using a small coffee grinder, which I happen to have. All I have to do is find it... I also thought about grinding my considerable stash (two quart container) of textured vegetable protein into a powder with a food processor.

Morning plank. Ten minutes on the Air Walk Trainer first thing in the morning to burn off glycogen.

Cardio: one hour on the Air Walk Trainer and five minutes every hour to counter the effects of sitting.

More progress on de-cluttering the home office.

Relaxation: two 30-minute naps.
