So I failed at keeping up with this log, as well as keeping up with Soylent.

While I was having more Soylent than food and getting regular exercise and regular yoga I was feeling great.

Having the occasional food meal, occasional food snack, eventually turned into more than occasional and then Soylent became occasional and stopped altogether.

I gained weight back, felt like crap, and, as of today, am going back to Soylent.

I just got my first box of v1.6, which is smoother and the taste is different. Better, I guess. More bland - doesn't taste like pancake batter anymore. It just doesn't taste like anything.

I'm getting more regular exercise every day due to Pokémon Go and will be getting to the gym regularly again. Summer break for all the kids really threw regular routine off, as it does, lol.

Back at it now, though. :)

Weight: 167.8lbs
Avg weight for the last month: 166.2lbs

Playing Pokémon with the family was great tonight, as usual. But the BEST part was that was we found real live toads at one of the parks we went to!

I kicked off my shoes, put down my phone, and caught some toads instead. The kids loved getting to hold and touch them; they'd never seen toads in real life before!

The kids weren't quite fast or fearless enough to catch them themselves, though a couple of attempts were made.

FYI:

The Postal Service receives NO tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

The Postal Service is the only organization in the country that has the resources, network infrastructure and logistical capability to deliver to every residential and business address in the nation.

The Postal Service has the country’s largest retail network — larger than McDonald’s, Starbucks and Walmart combined, domestically.

_The Postal Service can and does compete with the private sector — and it collaborates with it, too. UPS and FedEx pay the Postal Service to deliver hundreds of millions of their ground packages to residences, taking advantage of the Postal Service’s expansive delivery network. The Postal Service pays UPS and FedEx for air transportation, taking advantage of their comprehensive air networks._

But also:

American taxpayers subsidize the USPS at a rate that surpasses the costs associated with any Congressional mandate. He estimates that, all told, the subsidies and legal monopolies that Congress bestows upon the post office is worth $18 billion annually.

Post office officials have often attributed the losses to the decline in demand for first class mail in favor of more efficient modes of communication, and congressional mandates that the USPS do things like deliver mail on Saturdays and to unprofitable parts of the country. In fact, the USPS claims that if it weren’t for such requirements, it would more or less break even.

The arguments these culture SJW's make are surprisingly similar to the arguments racial separatist Skinheads make. Just wanna throw that out there.

Oh, please............maybe they should serve only that food which was eaten by Ohio settlers in the earliest decades. And I think just to be on the safe side, Oberlin ought to cook using the methods first used by pioneers, too. And probably they ought to stick to having the same genders doing the same work each gender did then, just to be sure we don't stray into any other culture by mistake. QUOTE: Cooking was done in iron pots in the open hearth. Food was raised of hunted. The pioneer women baked once a week in the hearth oven. Cookies and bread were baked first, followed by cakes and pies...Almost every farm home had a bean separator, since beans were a major ingredient in the farm diet. This hand-made machine, which threshed...beans, could be operated by dog power...Other items of the early Ohio kitchens were sausage stuffers and a lard press..END QUOTE. Of course, the rub is that ......(quote).Many settlers brought their native customs and cuisines to Ohio. The transplanted New Englanders brought with them their recipes for baked beans and salt pork and molasses. Dumplings made with sour milk, chicken potpie...Some of these early settlers used bread stuffings for pork and beef, mainly to stretch a meal...The Germans brought their love for sausages, sauerkraut, and hearty meat and potato meals. Czech immigrants brought one of their favorite dishes--fish boiled with spices and served with a black sauce of prunes, raisins, and almonds... No fruit was more important to pioneer life than the apple...John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, left a trail of apple orchards throughout Ohio...Many of the first permanent settlers of Ohio were Germans from Pennsylvania...Cincinnati was established after the War of 1812 and became an elegant metropolis. Oysters were the luxury food...In the mid-nineteenth century Cincinnati was the world's greatest pork-packing center, turning hogs from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky into hams and sausages."

My situation is slightly different, but 90% the same.

We're frugal AF, that's how we make it work, and that's how we can occasionally "splurge", too. That also means, though, even when we splurge we found some kind of killer deal.
I’ve had this scene play out more times than I can remember…. I strike up a conversation at a park or play place with another adult, and the topic of conversation eventually leads to work. “So, what do you do?” They ask. “I’m a stay at home mom,” I say. “Oh? ‘Must be nice to …

+ryhpeZ irollaV Exactly. The following might be a more supportable statement: they mated because they felt like having sex, and so did the mate, and they did it behind the back of the alpha male because they knew he would clobber them if he were aware.

Read this.
It is the opinion of this gay and trans man that 'Star Trek Beyond' falls very short in the area of good LGBTQ2+ representation.

Remember all the bru-ha-ha when Kirk kissed Uhura in TOS? Several networks refused to air it.

That was infuriating. The stories like this just keep stacking up. If cops don't get their act together soon and start actually holding their entitled violent gang accountable themselves, the backlash is going to continue to stack up as well.

Story
Introduction
I am a woman, wife, mother, (secular) homeschooler, and my family is the most important thing to me. 

My parenting technique is mostly "free range", and my homeschooling technique is mostly "child led" (though not quite unschooling).
I respect children as people and individuals, and believe that most children are far more intelligent, capable, and wise than we (people, collectively) typically give them credit for.  

I like hiking, camping, leisurely cycling, walking, and generally being outside.

I enjoy photography, Pentax cameras, knitting, crocheting, and making beaded jewelry.

I like helping people in need, and feel a sense of personal responsibility to try to  help people directly.  

I'm interested in nutrition, sustainable living, and learning and teaching my children as much as I can about as many subjects as possible. (and finding the right rescources to help us learn the things I cannot teach)

While I understand the natural desire to label things and people, and to associate with people of like mind, I also believe that if we stop making such an effort to segregate ourselves into groups by race, religion, politics, nationality, gender, ability, etc; we may realize that we are all HUMAN and learn to respect and accept each other as such. 
If we stop fighting for special or better treatment for whatever groups we have chosen to align ourselves with, and instead we all unite to fight for EQUAL treatment and freedom for ALL people, we can make a better world than we or anyone before us has ever experienced. 

I used to think that democracy was pretty great, but as I get older and pay more attention to politics, I think more and more that democracy is the #1 way to ensure that the majority always rules the minority. The only solution I can think of for this problem is to limit government enough so that ALL people have the freedom to live the way they choose (with the caveat that some sort of reprecussions should happen for any person that harms another).
Bragging rights
I'm pretty sure I'm a genuinely good person. That seems like something to brag about considering a lot of people I come in contact with.

We are from out of town, but stopped in the replace my husband's mod and my tank. I'm really impressed. VaporGeeks has a larger variety of mods and tanks than I have seen in any vape shop in the Phoenix area, and much better prices on them, as well. The 3 juices we got (cinn sugar cookie, vanilla cupcake, and sub ohm French vanilla) are all good, and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to answer questions.

The laser maze was really cool. Smaller than I thought it would be, but also more fun than I expected. My teen son and I did the maze several times as a team and had a lot of fun. We'll definitely be back many more times.
