In early Spring 2012, I’ll be heading north from Washington State through British Columbia, NWT, and Yukon to the Arctic Ocean. From there I’ll be connecting the dots of a 7,000 mile loop through Alaska and back to the starting point. I’ll be paddling 7 rivers, and burning zero fuel Read more…

A public thank you: Clarity to my core beliefs

I want to start out by saying that we need to be mindful that we cannot know everything about anything, but we can surround ourselves with people that are better than ourselves to collectively figure this stuff out. I came to this ancestral health movement via The Paleo Diet channels. Read more…

vainglory-268 - After

Testimonial: “I’ve officially lost over half of my original body weight.”

  I used to weigh over a quarter of a ton. The last weigh in I did before I started my weight loss campaign showed 538 pounds on the $250 scale my wife had to buy me with our tex return in March of 2010.  As of today, I weigh Read more…

The Case for the Short Metcon

The ‘Metcon’ (short for metabolic conditioning) is a staple of CrossFit style training. Typically it is two to three exercises repeated for rounds.

Myra’s Story: “You don’t have to be perfect…”

The only thing I can see as a “starting factor” to my eating disorder is that I began taking birth control about the same time and started dealing with depression off and on. I have been battling with bulimia, bingeing and purging, since I was 19. Now, almost 32, I Read more…

Fish Oil

Ahhh…fish oil. A whole industry built around supplying us with something that should be a natural part of our food supply. Prior to the 1970’s meat and dairy in the United states was still grass fed so we received ample amounts of the main constituents of fish oil, EPA and Read more…
