Fun fact: Dogs shake or kick their legs when you scratch them because of something known as the "scratch reflex." When you scratch or tickle your dog’s belly it irritates him much the same way that the wind or a bug might irritate you. It activates nerves under his skin that are connected to his spinal cord and relays a message to his leg muscles to kick in an attempt to get rid of the irritant. When you scratch/rub his belly, you are the one both providing the “itch” and “scratching” it, so it’s a completely pointless act (taken from the Dogington Post) #themoreyouknow
⚠️Rounded shoulders are a common postural imbalance these days. Many of us sit at desks all day, hunched over looking at computer screens and phones
💯Sometimes this poor posture stems from tight chest muscles. Try this door frame stretch to stretch your pecs! You can do this once/day, or whenever you think of it (if you’re inconsistent like me)
✅You can also play with the degree of flexion at the elbows: drop your arms down a bit and you will hit the pec minor👍🏻
Alaska never disappoints - this was hiking on Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. Did you know that not all glaciers are the same? Exit Glacier is a type of Piedmont Glacier (when a steep valley glacier spills out onto flat plains - usually starting from an ice field). Exit Glacier feeds off the massive Harding Icefield (over 700 square miles, not counting the glaciers attached to it). Cracks in glaciers are called crevasses, while holes in the ice (picture 2) are called moulins (pronounced “moo-lan”). Glaciers are constantly changing, and our awesome guide Rachel pointed out a lot of major changes in features in the ice from only a few days prior to our hike. Do you know that while glaciers are definitely affected by global warming, they actually aren’t the best example because of their constant state of flow and retreat? Artic ice melt is a much better solid example! All I know was that we ended up doing almost 7 miles that day, ascending 2000ft, and had the experience of a lifetime. BTW, in the last picture, those dots on the left are people on the ice. It shows a better scale of how big Exit Glacier is, even though it’s one of the smaller Glaciers in the Harding Icefield! #themoreyouknow#hardingicefield#exitglacier#exitglacierguides#kenaifjordsnationalpark#glacier#takemebacktuesday @exitglacierguides @rachel_topf7
One of the creepiest things I’ve come across while doing #photography I was shooting an old church for my #abandoned series. The church had a grave yard beside it and I noticed these little bells with strings attached. A long time ago, when medicine was still very primitive in nature, doctors often could not confirm if a patient was dead. A string would be tied to your wrist and ran up through the coffin to a bell. If you had been accidentally buried alive, you could ring the bell. Someone’s job was to literally sit in the graveyard all night in the event a bell was rung. Ergo the term “graveyard shift”. The bells are also known as dead ringers. What is the creepiest thing you’ve found while hiking/doing photography?

I just watched an Australian documentary called #themagicpill . It is essentially about the devolution of our modern-day nutritional habits — and more specifically, about the Ketogenic Diet.
Anyone that knows me somewhat well can tell you that I’ve always been a staunch opponent of Keto. Why? Because most people associate hear the phrase “Low Carb/High Fat” and immediately think that bacon and burgers with extra cheese is now a solid foundation on which to base their nutrition. I see very little nutritional awareness when scrolling through Keto posts.
I encourage you to watch #themagicpilldocumentary and decide for yourself if Ketogenic method of nutrition is right for you. There are many compelling reasons to give it a try, including evidence that it can improve disorders such as diabetes (which we already knew), heart disease, asthma and Autism (the latter being near and dear to my heart).
Food is fuel, you’ve heard it a thousand times and seen it all over “motivational selfies” on social media. What are you currently fueling your body to do, and what are you fueling it with?
The answer should always be to fuel yourself with more real food. Ketogenic diet or not — processed anything will always be inferior to whole foods. Processed sugar is the real villain, folks...not the dreaded sweet potato or legume.
As for me, I might give the HFLC nutritional plan a whirl...who would have thought?!
