    The docs are coming out of the woodwork. Good for us low-carbers. I'm tired of sending links to people only to have them roll their eyes at me and send me back SAD nutrition and outdated cholesterol studies. emoticon

    I saw the video and this is really helpful. A good review of the old, bad science and positive info about the benefits of eating low-carb, high saturated fats. Clearly presented and even some humor. Thanks and keep sharing the good stuff!

I've been exercising well, either swimming or running and eating on plan. My weight is staying the same, somewhere between 130.6 and 131.6
I did have to cut down the swimming for a while because my right shoulder was getting a little sore. I may wait for the soreness to go away completely and then alternate swimming and running for a while to build up my shoulder muscles more gradually. Given how many swimmers end up with shoulder problems I want to rather be on the careful side.
Tomorrow we will go ice skating. I'm looking forward to that.

    Ice skating sounds great; I only ever went once as a teenager and it was fun.

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:

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!
