Dr. William Davis from "Wheatbelly" on Dr. Oz

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

It happened today and I missed it, but it should be available online from the Dr. Oz website soon. In the meantime go to www.wheatbelly blog.com and read the comments and see the preview.
This should spread the word that wheat is toxic! emoticon
I have to give credit to our newest member on the wheatbelly team, MOMMYFOSTEJ, for passing this on. emoticon

    I saw a preview of the show and it looked good - Dr Oz satisfyingly flummoxed, although I'm sure they prepped him beforehand. Can't wait to see the entire thing. My partner keeps saying this wheat thing is going to go mainstream and I keep saying no way, people are way too into their grains.

Then I saw this yesterday:

    I was not happy with Dr. Oz's interview with Gary Taubes so I am hopeful this interview went better. I will check out the site right now. Thanks for sharing and caring!

Exercising my horse Blue Eagle at liberty

Monday, December 03, 2012


Before I do much riding every season I make sure that my equine athlete has been properly conditioned to carry me and the saddle, similar to a hiker getting in shape before carrying a heavy backpack. Especially a horse's core muscles must be in great shape to carry a rider without damage to the spine, legs or shoulders. Here I do what is called liberty work, which means that the horse is not restrained by a halter and lunge line nor under saddle.
Because we had very little time to ride this year our riding season starts in the winter.
This is only the second time this season that I'm doing liberty work in a round pen with Blue Eagle. A round pen is usually an enclosure that is made from heavy-duty metal or wood panels that keep the horse from leaving while it is made to move around the pen. This pen is different in that there is only a thin plastic strip surrounding the pen which any horse could easily run through or jump over. It is not designed to force the horse to stay with me but is more of a boundary marker. The intention of my training is to use the the least amount of pressure necessary to get my horse to move in the direction and the speed I am asking for without escalating my cues to a level that is causing stress or pain. I use the lunge whip as an extension of my arm, not to hit the horse. The horse is asked to do some through body language and verbal cues (which are hard to hear) and the horse is rewarded through words and touch. I also use what is called negative reinforcement, which means the release of pressure when the horse complies. As you can see, I'm not much of a horse groomer, just not enough time. emoticon
Hope you'll enjoy it anyhow. emoticon

    Very impressive you can control him that way! We don't have a round pen here, so that would be hard. I hope when I lose a bit more weight Alison will let me ride Colby.

    did someone take the video or did you set up your camera somewhere? i want to get the glasses that have the video camera so i can tape what i am watching. ie: my horses when they are at liberty.
i have finally started bill on round pen work again since his long long layup. had the chiro/accupuncturist out for him again yesterday and he is doing so well. i can hardly wait to ride him again.
thanks for the video.

    I am so sorry that I never had a Morgan horse like I always wanted so much. My husband never had any interest in horses and so I didn't get one although I had a horse when I grew up on our family farm. I wasn't smart.

    Thank you so much for sharing your blog with us! I work with horses and disabled children, and would love to spend more time with horses on my own as well. I really enjoyed reading your blog. When I was in my 20s I owned a horse and as I am getting older I realise that I am ashamed at how little I really knew about horses and their care.

I look forward to reading more of your blogs, or even keeping in touch with me through Spark Mail.

Have a wonderful time with your friend. You look like you really love and trust each other, the way we should with our equine family.

weight back to 130.8
This always happens that my weight drops after a rest day while it goes up on the day of a hard workout. I suspect that my body needs 24 hrs. to get rid off waste from muscles fibers being torn down and then being rebuilt stronger.
Today it is wet and rainy and windy. I don't really feel like much exercise. I might just watch some movies and do a few minutes of strength training at home.
If I feel adventurous maybe a little walk around the local mall with a stop at the coffee shop. those people at Starbucks sure don't like it when I order a decaf drip coffee, LOL. I always ask for lots of room for cream and then add that plus some cinnamon. Much cheaper than lattes, and they add whipped cream for free if you ask, yum!

My weight was up to 131.6 this morning. It looks like swimming, just like running for endurance, may lead to a small weight gain, hopefully muscle, I'll find out in 11 days.
Today was my rest day so all I did is walk/jog with the dogs for about an hour. I have had no trouble to stay within my carb limit of 50 grams/day but don't feel comfortable going much lower either.
I'm paying a little more attention to getting enough salt than I used to.

Think carefully if you need that hospital stay!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

This article points out some dangers from resistant bacteria. If you need to go the hospital find out if there were any cases of these there recently and see if there are alternatives to a hospital stay (like a surgeons surgery suite). This may even save a lot of money, too.

    Scary stuff. My newborn grandson was hospitalized with MRSA at 9 days. I assumed he picked it up in the hospital since another baby was also affected and none of the family was sick. Back in 2000 MRSA wasn't well known. Fortunately both babies recovered although the little girl had to be airlifted to Duke.
