It was a good race. I was kinda worried about the weather. It was around 34 degrees when we started and was sprinkling. I wasn't quite sure how to dress for it because my body heats up really quickly and I didn't have the money to get what I really wanted. So I put a dry fit shirt on and a long sleeve shirt. I was glad I didn't do anything more than that. Because of the wind, people were fighting to keep their head gear on. I can't stand to ha... Mon, 3 Feb 2014 13:46:49 EST Coconut oil advice needed :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5610206 I really hate to ask this question. I have been reading the advantages of coconut oil and about coconut pulling. Matter of fact, I recently commented on a ladies blog not to long ago. <BR> <BR> I understand that coconut oil is in a solid form. When coconut oil is mixed with whey protein or used for coconut pulling (mouth washing), is everyone melting it then using it right away before it becomes a solid state again? <BR> <BR> Thank you in advance for your advice! <BR> <em>84</em> Thu, 30 Jan 2014 12:20:24 EST Morning Motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5610089 "Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year." <BR> ~Franklin P.
