No, not really. I haven't been in a real fight in a very, very long time. Which is probably a good thing. I'm old, I'm big, and people my age tend to go to jail for those type of things. This is about my new handy-dandy desk at work that was installed on Wednesday during … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 3: Stand Up, Sit Down…
What makes doctors think that strapping something onto your finger and hand, laying it beside you and trying to sleep is going to be normal? Maybe it's just me, but it isn't comfortable. Not only that, I am paranoid I am going to roll over on it, it will fall off, fall on the floor, … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 2: Sleep Study
Now THAT is the kind of number I was hoping to see. I still followed the tradition of weighing more on Monday morning than I did on Saturday or Sunday morning, but not nearly as much this week. I have to figure that part out. I am staying well within my calories and the only … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 1: 285.2
Here's the recap for week 7 of my Project 7x52! Exercise: A Exercised all 7 days though my running seems to be worse than before. I am sure it is being impacted by the fact that I am not able to lift. I am probably - unfortunately - losing some muscle as this is all … Continue reading Project 7×52: Week 7 Recap
Sunday was just about the perfect rest day. We went shopping as we normally do, but then the rest of the day was spent relaxing, getting a few steps here and there, doing a few chores and enjoying food, television and the company of my wife. The only downside was that WalMart truly sucks. I … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 7: Sunday Funday
I tried to do my normal run Saturday morning, and it started off okay, if not slow. I was able to run for a while without too much of an issue for the first part of it, but the last part ended up just being a three mile walk. My feet hurt, I am still … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 6: Feets
It seems that my body wants to keep rebelling against me. First there was back pain, leg pain, shoulder pain, shoulder surgery, more leg pain... and now I think I've developed plantar fasciitis. In both feet no less. I think it was from my adventure trying to "run correctly" where I was running closer to … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 5: One Thing Or Another
My surgeon prescribed that I should go to physical therapy once per week for the next four weeks. Today was my first day and it was pretty painful... and awkward. I started by showing him how far I could move my arm initially. He then stretched my shoulder out and got it moving before having … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 4: Physical Therapy
So as most people who know me know, I enjoy running. The other day I wanted to try running "the right way" which I did once in the past and regretted for a week. Well, I have so far regretted it this time for three days and it doesn't seem to be letting up soon. … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 3: My Calves!
Yesterday was doctor day. I had a follow-up on my shoulder and figured I'd schedule some time to see a "regular" doctor and do a yearly checkup. I haven't had a primary care provider so I figured it was a good time to get one of those, plus I need to check to see if … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 2: Doccin’ It Up!
