Kayaking in Antarctica


One of the wonderful things the BJJ Cavewife and I did was go kayaking in Antarctica.  We had some amazing experiences out on the ocean… which as you can see was pretty cold.

    This question is probably not related to article. But I wanted to get your attention and hence this question on your latest post. Thanks for all the awesome detailed info. It really helps people. I read the effect ketosis had on your thyroid. I havent started on this diet but doing my research before getting into it. My family has had thyroid problem and I feel I am sensitive to the issues as well. so far my tests are okay. A lot of reserarch articles out there say ketosis affects thyroid leading to hypothy. I also like to be active. lift heavy weights , cardio, pilates etc. Considering all this, I am thinking of taking up IF. What do you suggest or think? Have you tried IF? Any thoughts will be helpful. Also read that IF does not impact thyroid in the way ketosis does. I also do not want to deprive myself of fruits, vegies and gluten free carbs. Considering that I am married and my hubby isnt into all of this… ketosis really does not seem to be a long term thing for me. Off late I put on too much weight due to a lot of stress and study work that I had to do with no time for careful easting and exercise. Sorry for the long post. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks a lot!

      I hope you don’t mind, but I will answer your question as a post since it covers a lot of things!

        Sure. That would be great and I look forward to it. I think I am going to stick to a balanced diet and intense mix of exercises including strength for now. Thanks again

    At least you didn’t need to dodge burgy bits where you were paddling! Where did you do that kayaking? I was thinking that Deception Island would be a good spot since it’s sheltered.

      We went Kayaking in Wilhelmina Bay, Pleneau Island, Iceberg Alley, and a few other places I can’t quite recall now… but I’m sure it’s written down somewhere…

      A few intrepid souls went at Deception Island, but it was just too windy that day and we weren’t feeling up for it. Turns out we made a good decision, because the kayakers who went had to abort the mission after only 10 minutes due to the tide and winds.

    What an amazing life experience. It must have been surreal to be there at that moment? I think we all need moments like this to think about the bigger picture, where we are, where we want to be.

    Can you email me directly, I had questions for you concerning blogging.
