    Hey!! Time to paint the gym!! We will begin painting Saturday (may 8) at noon and would love some volunteers to help on both Sat and Sun. Volunteers will be paid in beer. Saturday night, Jonathan and Ryan have invited everyone to their “SOmething de Mayo” party. THey will be donating all the leftover booze to the painting party on Sunday May 9th that will begin at 11am.
    Next hydrostatic bodyfat testing will be June 8th. That whole first week of June will be preparing us for our next “paleo challenge” that will begin June 14th…details to come. Still looking for more feedback/suggestions for this next round.
    In addition to being painted, the gym is being cleaned…there will no longer be a grace period for dirty dishes/tupperwares/coffee cups/underwear/protein shakers, etc left behind. If I find it, without a name on it, while no one is at the gym, it is going in the trash. If you want to keep it at the gym, clean it, put your name on it, and put it in a logical spot (next to the sink/in a cupboard).
    Next cookout: Friday May 14th.
    Gym will be closed the weekend of May 22/23 for a level 1 cert. We will plan a run or another fun activity.
    ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT: May 2010 is the last month we will be providing a big unorganized binder for people to record their workouts in. We will however provide the service of Beyond the Whiteboard. Click on “Online workout log” on the left to see how to sign up. The other option is to keep your own little book. I think you will find this much easier for you as well.

    Maren had these comments on the following article i wanted to share with everyone:
    http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=carbs-against-cardio
    “I’ve been telling people for years that the lipid hypothesis is false and was later retracted by the scientist behind it–that saturated fat causes heart disease. Gamma linoleic acid (a form of saturated fat), which is found in grass fed cows, is one of the heart’s primary and most optimal forms of energy. Refined carbs cause inflammation throughout the body because, among other things, it increases insulin levels substantially. To boot, cholesterol in food, does not translate in to serum cholesterol (like the article says). A better marker for increased LDL cholesterol (“the bad cholesterol”) is lipo protein A, which is increased with over consumption of refined carbs and oxidative fats (e.g. olive oil exposed to light or heated at temperatures that cause it to smoke). LDL cholesterol is merely a protective mechanism, repairing cracks in the walls of the arteries. The underlying damage is caused by refined carbs–not cholesterol rich foods. In fact, the danger with cholesterol lowering drugs, for women in particular, is that they often result in stroke–the very thing they’re trying to prevent. Women’s cholesterol goes up naturally as they get older and foods high in cholesterol are actually important and necessary support for women’s complicated endocrine systems.
    I’m being tangential right now, but am clearly very passionate about FATS. I love fat ’cause they make us healthy and happy!!” (Maren Robinson)
