  • Thanks Moluv! I will definitely check out "Birthing from Within" and present it to the wifey. She is reading and researching a bunch of stuff as she gets advice from all her nursing friends who are natural birth mommies. That is a huge accomplishment that you had two natural births. I want to make sure that even if the wife decides last minute that she does want a little something to ease her pain that she wasn't a total failure. I know some women who back out of their plan tend to feel really cruddy about it if things change. The last thing I want to do is for her to feel bad about it. But I think if she is more aware of what things she is supposed to feel and what is normal that will really help. She knows it will be the most painful thing she has ever endured in her life. Being in a hospital with staff that are pushy about the drugs is a scary thing though. When shit hits the fan I might have to make some key decisions for her that we have already discussed in advance.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

      I have to disagree with this kind of thinking and this is why. The birth process is a slow and gradual unfolding of multiple physiological processes on a feedback loop. Staying present, staying relaxed, being safe and comfortable go a loooong way in allowing all of this to unfold in a way that is perfectly manageable, and sometimes even enjoyable by any woman. Hormones will be released to help cope with the pain, as long as drugs are not interfering. When the baby comes out the feeling of relief is overwhelming, almost orgasmic. Other kinds of sudden, external injuries for which the body is not prepared to cope with are far more painful, IMO. Think teeth knocked out, broken bones, shark attack, gunshot wound etc- that is real pain. The Birthing from within book explains the physiology and feedback loop so well and I credit that book 100% (well maybe also yoga/meditation training as well) with teaching me what I needed to know to harness my birth power.

          • Also still waiting for ab pics.

            Re: childbirth. I've had two of my three kids via natural childbirth. For one of them I was in labor for 24 hours, pushed for 5 hours. It was painful, yes, but not unbearable. Having rotator cuff surgery is more painful than childbirth (I've had that too).

            • Heres that pic from like a week (2weeks?) ago. I havnt gotten around to weighing myself or takin pics, prob just wait till the finish line.

                    • I'm definitely not there yet, aesthetically. I've pushed myself to new limits physically, but either the workout stress, the reduced calories, or too much salt/other bloat are blocking me! Or, if the peanut gallery will refrain from hurling, it might even be my very low carbohydrate intake. I've been leaner, but it was solely by food I think. Either way, at this point, I've definitely commanded my body to build and conserve muscle. It's just time to accelerate fat loss. I usually lose or gain gradually, over months, not weeks.

                      • When i get on a computer ill post a pic of my sleeve. i think its posted in yogas journal but thatd be a bitch to find.

                        Knife, i hear ya man. Getting uber lean takes a lot of commitment if you want to do it fast. Frankly i give a damn but i dont give that much of a damn. Im still going to up the workouts though and see if that helps. Deads, front squats and some sort of press tonight.
