Purge Happening For Real

Today’s post will be a short one.  I’m exhausted after recording back to back podcasts last night.  Today’s even busier and I’m writing this on my phone.  I just wanted to open a discussion on this purge idea going around on social media.  I first saw about this on Facebook about purge Louisville.  The details on it were limited. I’m still not sure what’s real and what’s hoax. It’s definitely something to keep an eye on though.  So let’s get to it.

Dealing With Waste During A Disaster

This is the second part to our waste management series. It’s a dirty topic but it needs to be dealt with. The first part was all about toilet paper. I covered everything you could want to know about keeping a clean behind in a grid down situation. Everything from the short term to the long term and sustainable. So we covered the wiping aspect now what do we do with the waste? I have a few thoughts on it. Everything from the short term to long term. So let’s deal with this waste.

Conflicted

Join James and Mike along with special guest Mikes Wife as they play an entire game of conflicted the game. I thought it would be great to not just do a card but an entire game. We play through several rounds and determine a winner. We read some really great, thought provoking cards. Most of all we had a great time. Also on the show we talk about the crossfit games and the winners. Which is a few weeks old at this point. James talks about the Serval App for phones. It allows text and phone calls without phone service. I used it on a phone with no sim card and made a call. More testing on it in the future. I was looking at some off grid communication without buying extra hardware. Mesh technology could be the answer. We talk about the give Mike a nickname contest that is still going on. If you want to cast your vote comment down below.

If you have questions, news, or want to be a guest on the show send me an email at James At Survivalpunk Dot Com.

Paleo And Exercise: A One Two Punch

I’ve been following a paleo lifestyle for a few years. I was overweight most of that time too. Heck I’m still overweight but not by much. If I was following a strict paleo diet why was I still fat? What was the huge secret I was missing? There were many reasons for my failure. Many misunderstandings I had about things. I had to dial in and find what worked best for me. Mostly though I had to get out of the cave and get active and social. Paleo and exercise go hand in hand.  Today I’ll be talking about why you can’t skip the workouts.

Overeating

Eating a paleo diet is more nutrient dense. To anyone following the diet you know this. Even knowing this you might still be making mistakes.  Grains for all their celebrated greatness are lacking in nutrients. On a paleo diet you learned to not weigh and measure your food. Eat until satiated is the prescribed wisdom. While that is great some will overeat on that. Your either used to eating a larger amount or are not sure what satiety feels like. Many have been programed to eat on a clock. Must eat at this time or that time. Must eat this many or that many meals. Trying to eat 6 nutrient dense meals in a day is not good. Do not eat because the clock says so. Eat when you are actually hungry. Eat until you are not hungry nor full.

Excess Energy

I started crossfit in December 2013. One of the first things my coach said to me was I had the diet under control now needed to use that energy. Eating strict high fat paleo gave me tons of energy. Which I did nothing with. The 24 hour globo gym bored me. I would go whole months without going. I didn’t know a single other person in there. My workouts, when I did them, were boing. I tended to use my excess energy by watching Youtube videos on the couch. Even good healthy calories end up as fat when you do nothing.  While I still enjoy some Youtube it’s no longer marathons.

 

Paleo and Exercise

One Solution is never as good as a ton. To burn this excess energy I tried to find as many active things as possible to do. First was I joined a crossfit gym. For me the high intensity varied workouts were perfect. I show up say Hi and get to do something new everyday. I’ve  seen more results from this randomized training than anything else I’ve done. My fitness level has sky rocketed since joining. Everyday I do things I could not before.

Get Active

The other big two things I do are hiking and throwing the Frisbee. I love hiking and I’m surrounded by beautiful Tennessee trails. I try to go do a day hike at least once a week now. Man has evolved to walk and run through trails. I find the time spent in nature is meditative. After a hike I always feel more calm. I keep a frisbee in my car now. I will play with it every chance I get. Stuck waiting for seats at a restaurant? Get out your disc and play a little. Play is a very important part of life that is gone in most adults. Playing is next to sleep in stress reduction. Find something you like to do and do it. Weight comes off and life quality goes way up.

Emergency Toilet Paper

Toilet Paper In a Collapse

 

Toilet Paper
Toilet Paper

Were going to get dirty today guys. Or more accurately were going to wipe away the dirt. Toilet paper and waste disposal is not a subject we’ve discussed on Survivalpunk. Until now  that is. It is not a glamorous part of survival. Nobody want to think about life after flushing. Unless you think about it now though your going to wish you did. A little prior thought about this foul subject can go a long way. Not only will it save your nostrils but possible your life. I’m deciding to break this into a two part post. This first part will focus only on toilet paper. Wipe away your fear and lets get right to it.
