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?

Used the Soloflex this morning so my workout is already in.

See you tomorrow.

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.

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!

I have used the Bullworker Thursday-Friday, swim tomorrow.

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.
