The pork in your Egg McMuffin or McRib comes from pigs, of course. What you may not know is that those pigs are birthed by female “breeding” pigs who lead miserable lives, to put it mildly. They live in impossibly small enclosures called “gestation crates,” in which the pigs can barely move. These dirty, restrictive enclosures frequently cause pigs to become covered in sores, open wounds, and infections.

…the interesting thing about being high up on a Leader ‘Board’ is that it’s never boring…Spiritual Awakening is the same way; the mundane turns miraculous. It’s like when you quit rationalizing about going to yoga and just commit to show up; no matter what. soon, the extensors start extending when the flexors flex, instead of shortening. something REAL is happening within; discs stop getting herniated, muscles stop cramping, and the body has less of itself to fight….

El Coache, I am writing because I could use a little help or even just a short pep-talk. I have been struggling for what seems like years to get back on the right track. I am 206 and 22% BF if my scale is to be believed. A couple of years ago (when I did my first snowshoe race) I was 185 and 12-14%. Not great but better than where I am now. I don’t care so much about the raw numbers but they are discouraging. I am a bit overwhelmed by work, stress and anxiety as I have mentioned previously and if I listen to my body I am tired and feel out of it most of the time. I know I need the exercise as a stress release and to lose the excess weight so missing it only adds stress. When I do exercise, I am discouraged by how far I have slipped back. My cardio fitness is a distant memory it seems and I even have anxiety about that as I seem to read every day about very fit athletes dropping dead during a ride or run. Meditation is proving elusive as well. Not sure what to do with the limited time I have. I know my problems are minor in the grand scheme of things but I can’t seem to get out of this rut and it’s depressing. Any perspective, advice, anything would be appreciated. Thanks for all the help you’ve given me over the years…
