30 Day Cowlean Challenge, Day Seven: Mother’s Day Special

Hi guys,

Weigh-in: 208.8 lbs
Calories: 3100 kcals

Quite an irritating weigh-in, to say the least. The food content was good, but I still think my body was getting over Friday’s damage. Add to that the fact I ate dinner, and most of my food, at about 9pm. We’ll see how I fare tomorrow once Friday fades off into the sunset.

Today is Mother’s Day so I’m going to hamfist some interesting tidbits into this one. The first one is: did you know that your mitochondrial DNA is exclusively inherited from your mother? The mitochondria are the place where your body converts food (carbohydrates, fats, proteins) into ATP: a usable form of energy. The genes that control this process only come from the maternal line of your family tree, so that means there’ll be a spritely Cowlean inhabiting this world for a long time to come!

What really interested me about this fact, is that there was quite conceivably a “Mitochondrial Eve” somewhere in the past who we can all trace lineage back to. Mutation in this type of DNA is very slow, also, so we would share a lot of similarities.

(And now the true hamfisting begins… - C) Spring is rolling around and it’s actually sunny once more: a great chance to get back in touch with mother nature. Believe it or not but the earth vibrates at a particular frequency. With us living in highrise flats and walking around with rubber soles, we have become out of touch with this frequency, leading to all kinds of stress. There’s a reason why we become so sleepy at the beach, and part of it is that we’re actually touching the earth again with our bare feet! So now that good weather is incoming, it’s a great opportunity to simply get out into a local park, burn some fat with a “low’n’slow” walk, and reconnect with nature.

Until tomorrow,
