Figure Skating day
Friday, February 10, 2012      9 comments

I had so much fun today. My confidence at figure skating is growing. I'll never be as good as my daughter who is already working on several jumps after just a couple of months of lessons. But my balance is getting better and I'm working some leg... Read more
"Playing God" documentary - a few thoughts
Thursday, February 09, 2012      6 comments

I'll start by saying that this topic is really messing with my mind and my emotions. There are a lot of questions that it raises and it's hard to find any answers. I usually am fairly good in separating my emotions from my convictions on an issu... Read more

I only had time for a short run of 3.3 miles today before it got dark. Average pulse was 134, average speed was 4.4 mph. I really did not feel like running today because it was wet outside and I felt a little tired. I'm glad I went anyhow. If el... Read more

Feeling great, no soreness from long run, chocolate almond cookies
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      7 comments

In spite of running 13 miles total yesterday I don't have any sore muscles and went ice skating for 2 hours today. I also walked dogs for about a half hour. As far as food I'm getting more in the habit of eating raw. If I cook vegetables I st... Read more
A great long run with low-carb breakfast and a half mint brownie
Monday, February 06, 2012      11 comments

I knew it was time for another long run today. This whole week I did not do that much running. It was partly difficult to find the time and my energy levels felt a little low so I only did a short mid-week run of about 3 miles. Since I knew th... Read more

Thursday, February 02, 2012      37 comments

This information could be critical to the well-being of millions of people. The message is "unbelievable" but it may be true. I'm copying a post I made in the spark group "Wheat Belly" earlier today: I just finished the book "Wheatbelly"... Read more
5th wheat-free and gluten-free day, 3 mile run, feeling tired
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      6 comments

I don't know if it was the weather, not enough veggies in the last 2 months since our garden hasn't been producing, the fact that I was exposed to my daughter's cold, dealing with the exposure to mercury from amalgam fillings as they are removed... Read more

3rd day without wheat or gluten, run in the wind
Monday, January 30, 2012      4 comments

After getting a lot less sleep last night because of the wind I was not sure how that would affect my running. I ended up running 5.5 miles as planned, speed 4.2 mph, on the slow side for sure, and I felt hungry for carbs half-way through the... Read more

I've read several more chapters of the book "Wheat Belly" and learned that about one in 133 people in the US (and other wheat eating countries probably) have celiac disease but only 10% are diagnosed. Only about half of them have the more typica... Read more

It was pretty easy so far. I stepped on the scales yesterday morning and my weight was down one pound to 139. So this will be my baseline. I started out with buckwheat pancakes made with buckwheat flour, duck eggs and milk, and added blueberri... Read more

I did my long run today, distance covered is 8.4 miles in 2 hours, average speed 4.2 mph and average heart rate 132. This is slower than what I was hoping for but given that I hardly ran in the last two weeks and missed two long runs I can't com... Read more

I had another amalgam filling removed. 7 down, 4 to go. I'm hoping that as my body will soon have to deal with a lot less mercury that this will have a positive influence on my overall health and fitness. I decided to skip my run today since thr... Read more
