While I have a little time as my pc checks my external hard drive that has been playing up I thought I would make a start on a jounal.

Today sees the end of week 1 in my now annual try at "how long can I go without alcohol"  

Last year I managed 101 days so I am hoping to do better it this time.

As usual my day starts with a lay in Smile or is that lie in?? whichever it is I have grown to like them since I retired.
June is out with her friend today so its just me and the animals.

I usually play the morning league and had to open my laptop to play so I set it up on the main TV to make it easier to see.

 

Normally I would make June a cuppa and feed the dogs before the morning league but as June was up early to get ready for her day out she made her own.

The rest of the day will be pretty much unexciting, I have a $25 free bet to use so will be checking the horses and checking the forum on and off all day to see if im needed.

To fill my days I often play on my xbox360, I have a couple of games I like on there and I have figured out how to mod some to make them more interesting. If anyone plays my tag is crypticthree.

I used to sell games and consoles when Sega and Nintendo were going well so have been a gamer for a year or 20 lol.

I normally have a chat with old lambone during the day where we put the world to rights, like 2 old women chatting over the fence we are lol.



It is quite amazing when I think of it how much the my888 community has affected my life since I joined back in 2006, May 5th will be my 10 year anniversary.

Things to do now, I will pop in and update as and when the mood takes me, writing is not something I really enjoy so I don't get around to doing it much as some.

Have a good day my888's

PC check still only @ 30 percent so I just dug out the mixer/juicer we bought years ago and never use. After a good clean I am trying stuff out.

Fresh pineapple and melon juiced down is blooming lovely Smile 


I am going to venture something with beetroot in later, although I am not keen it might taste better mixed with something and it is good for me im told. 

edit.

I am a little confused, I added a small piece of beetroot to the pineapple and melon and a pear and made strawberry juice, really it tastes just like strawberries lol


Anyone have any suggestions for something I can make with little/no sugar and use some beetroot in it?

I just use an old avg/pc (blue ends) cable between them.

Your laptop will probably dictate what screen res you can have on your TV so you might not get more tables, just bigger ones.

All depends on your graphic options.

Nice journal Chris, but your posts are always entertaining. The internet reccomends using strawberries ,bananas ,pineapple mangoes and papayas along with mild greens like spinach kale or even dandelion leaves, it also recommends cutting the beets up quite small, happy experimenting should be quite interesting.

Nice start cryptic

I also connect my lap-top to my tv but I use a HDMI cable, my main system is on a 3 monitor set up and I still can't have enough windows on show at times, but that's de to the different racing sites I have open

Dandelion and beetroot? they make dandelion and burdock (whatever that is) and if you like a bit of heat in your juice try adding half a chillie

Quick update before I pop to the shops.

Firstly I am not missing my drink but the last week has been stress free so I will wait and see how I feel when/if im having a bad day before I say any more Smile 

 Morning game was an early exit but I am employing new tactics, it's 12 points for the win or nowt lol.

my.888 is spammer free at the moment, hope im not tempting fate here, so that also makes my days easier.

Suns out but its cold and I am still struggling to find a horse for my free bet which expires early tomorrow.

Found one yesterday but bottled it and it dead heated @ 10-1 Frown

I have my 3 TV's all set up for my PC Ray, 50", 42" and 32" but I find I am not using more than the 1 mostly these days.




The 42" is also my gaming TV although obviously I can move the cables around as I like.

I used the AVG cable as my laptop hasn't got a HDMI slot although it has got a slot that looks like it should be one so I will have to check it out later. It's a HP 8440p elitebook bought 2nd hand from ebay.

I am planning on getting some more things to try for juicing today but as I am so very, very fussy with what I eat I don't know how adventurous I will be.

It's sugars I have to watch but I will know more about that after my appointment on the 11th. 

 Right off to the shops, laters all.

Yes, you do make me laugh too, Cryptic.  Used to love those old Les Dawson sketches...them were the days ey!


Just dusted off my "Miracle Juices" book and here are a couple with beetroot for you:


What's up Brocc (apparantly good for the immune system) - 8oz broccoli, 6oz carrot, 2oz beetroot


Heart Beet - 4oz beetroot, 4oz watercress, 4oz red onion, 8 oz carrot. 1 garlic clove (apparantly onion and garlic thin the blood, watercress oxygenates the blood and beetroot builds up the red blood cells)


Powerpack (for lethargy) - 8oz carrot, 4oz beetroot, 1 orange, 4oz strawberry


Bumpy ride (good for cellulite, apparantly) - 7oz apple, 2 oz beetroot, 3oz celery
