Well, the last few days have been an exercise "in futility".

But this morning, out of bed and strength training.

Breakfast: corn beef and hash, topped with fried eggs.

Let us see how the rest of the day fares?

Still struggling, but yesterday I made it good.

Breakfast: Breakfast burrito from Gator Jack's
Lunch: a bowl of beef noodles
Dinner: a hot dog and fries at the Idaho Falls Chukars game.

I am back to work today, let us see what this brings.

My soloflex workouts are starting to beat me up. I might return to my Bullworker wotrkouts for awhile.

10.11.17

I have been in disaster mode. Breakfast to lunch has been a challenge. Then After dinner.

This morning for breakfast: 5 eggs scrambled, a piece of toast, and a yogurt. Lunch is a mystery right now. But, I am upping my breakfast to get me to lunch with minimal damage.

I have been strength training since March. Mostly using my Soloflex, but at times just using my isometric bar. An occassional Airdyne ride is thrown in.

I am still doing pain management for my back: 15 mg of hydrocodone a day (morning, noon, bedtime 5 mg each), and 1600-2400 mg of Gabopentin for my neuropathy. The plan is, if I start hitting 30 mg a day, then the fusions are on tap. A ten hour surgery scares the poo out of me, so as long as I can keep the pain and my functioning good with this, the doc and I are good to go.

See you all later.

November 5, 2017

I swam three days last week. I am not a thing of beauty in the water, but along with being able to swim with minimal back pain, I find comfort being in the pool. I guess runners feel the same thing being on the road. I get the same "comfort" when I am home alone with no distractions, using the Soloflex. It must be where I reach my mindfulness.

My problem area, right now, is the AM. Apparently I need to increase my calories at breakfast to fight the 9:30 AM Skittles urge. An urge I fail to fight the good fight against.

Well today, being an S Day means I will see you tomorrow, hopefully reporting a successful N Day.

It's a beautiful thing when physical exertion brings inner peace. Enjoy!

Friday was a scrub due to a bag of Skittles.

Saturday was a lot of food. I did swim for 1/2 an hour.

Today I am resting. Laughing

Wow, the Holiday season this year is...Wow! (Imagine Saul Goodman saying that...) I wish I can say I am an oak. But, I am not.

So, today, I ate a big breakfast. And, I am full. I found some milks from left over school lunches, if get hungry I will drink a couple of those.

Lunch is French dip sandwiches. One will suffice, with maybe a side salad.

I have been doing Diamond Dallas Page yoga, and a new series I found on Amazon, Body by Yoga (for guys who do not do yoga...?). I need to get to the pool, but I have been lazy in that regard.

See everyone next time.

Well, I am getting my free for all dietary habit under control. Went to see the new Star Wars yesterday. Ate some pop corn, got indigestion. Ate some Hershey Kisses, ramped up the indigestion. Laughing But still, Yesterday was not bad.

I have done yoga (Body by Yoga, and Diamond Dallas) three times this week. I have not eaten today, but got the Diamond Cutter 2.0 in.

Had popcorn for dinner at the movies myself. I kinda wish I'd gotten indigestion. It was pretty easy to eat quite a lot. I actually haven't done that for years.

I still aspire to your consistency with extra movement.

Monday Success!

I skied Saturday, only for a couple of hours. First time in 3 years I have been. I want to get a few more Spring skiis in before they close. A lot of snow right now though.

Last Friday I came up with what I call the "shift". I know Friday night is often a night my wife and I go out for entertainment, etc. So, my S Day starts on Friday evening at dinner, and my S Day (s) end on Sunday at noon. I have dinner Sunday night and am in my N Day mode.

Tomorrow is my SuperSlow workout on my Soloflex. Everyone have a good day!

Success!

Last week was all green. My first all green week in a few years. The weekend was a respectable yellow.

I have been using the Bullworker for exercise.

I still need to restart either the DDP or Man Flow Yoga. I feel better when I am stretched out.

Well, see you later tonight!

Do you follow the DDP videos or just the book? I'm thinking of doing something similar.

I have both. Book and videos. They are good. actually the stretching makes my back and hips feel better. Actually, I have found swimming does the same thing for stretching and such.

However, on Tuesday Fail

I watched "Lincoln" and ate banana bread, with butter. I do not even like banana bread, but my daughter baked it, and it smelled good.

Back at it today.

See you tomorrow!

Whosonfirst: "Do you follow the DDP videos or just the book? I'm thinking of doing something similar."

I really did not address this as thoroughly as I might have. I do like DDP. However, on Amazon there is a series called "Body by Yoga" and it seems to be a DDP "borrow". It is generally marketed for guys (and gals), you can watch it through the Amazon video. It was put together by Dean Pohlman a former University of Wisconson-Madison LaCrosse player. The videos are quieter. I think, for instance, his series has a Yoga Strength segment wich in 26 minutes, I believe, gives just as good of a workout as the Diamond Cutter (50 minutes) from DDP. There is a series of 4 workouts that I purchaed via Amazon video that was 19.99 that is signifcantly less expensive than the DDP Yoga series.

Good luck with your search!

Thanks for the review. Must be karma since I was just reading about Wisconsin-Madison div. III football team. I've not attempted DDP's 50 min. dia. cutter as the 30 min. routines have been my limit so far.

A good S weekend. Snacked, but not excessively. My clothes are fitting better, and I can button up trousers without having to suck it in.

Once the weather warms up again I think I might hit the pool. We'll see. My exercise is in limbo because it usually makes me really sore. I do not like being really sore.

You have a point. I try not to.

The last week of March was a disaster. April is a new month.

See you all tonight/tomorrow.

Bullworker workout today.

Not very disciplined in regards to my diet.

However, I have started training, physically, with Persian/Indian Clubs. My wife let me know yesterday my shirts are fitting better. That is a good, first, sign.

I have been catching more sun as well. That is helping me feel better emotionally.

See you tomorrow.

I have spent the last week in Lewiston, Idaho. They feed us 3 times a day. I have been walking a lot. Tuesday I board the train for Northern California.

I have been a bit off the mark the last two weeks. Unfortunate.

Yesterday was better.

Today I have had two homemade breakfast sandwiches (they fit on a plate). About 500 calories. Most of the calories come from the English muffin.

Lunch is a Hungry Man frozen dinner. About 500 calories. Dinner will be chicken and rice?

I am on HRT. Although it does not make me look like Sylvester Stallone, I have been able to become more active. The last two weeks I have been using the Soloflex. So far, so good, no awful post workout pain in my muscles.

Well, you all have a good day.

Well, I have lost about 15-20 pounds. Three meals a day.

I had been swimming, but have not been in a couple of weeks.

I am going to do a Super Slow workout tonight, and then another one when I get back from Sacramento next week. It is good to have several tools in the exercise belt I am finding.
