So as I said yesterday, I was told by the doctor that I could start lifting again. I didn't mention to them that I have been doing everything but chest, back and shoulders... but I'll let that slide. So Wednesday I decided to go really light and try out what I could do. And I … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 3: Chest Day
So unfortunately the stress - as mentioned yesterday - doesn't seem to be going away. I seriously think I need a day at a spa or a cruise or something... just get away from responsibility for a while. Not that we should run from responsibility. But sometimes it is nice to put it behind us … Continue reading Week 16 – Day 3: Did I Say Stress?
Ugh, okay... slightly annoyed. Posted this and for some reason it went completely blank. So I am just going to sum it up a bit more. Wednesday was a super stressful day which I don't want to get into. If I still drank, probably would have had plenty. But talked to my wife instead and … Continue reading Week 15 – Day 3: The Run
I'm not sure if we can be friends if you don't know who this guy is... just kidding, but seriously. Breaking Bad was an amazing show, watch it. Wednesday was a decent but busy day. Had some announcements at work that always make the grumblings start talking (our CEO stepped down) and had a couple … Continue reading Week 13 – Day 3: Huel
So I was complaining about how my leg workout didn't seem to be doing what I had hoped, so I did a second day of leg workouts... well, they still haven't done much. Normally after I do squats and leg presses and the like I have a tough time walking for a few days. I … Continue reading Week 12 – Day 3: GAH!
Seriously, what made me think that changing my running style would be a good thing? I ran for years and had zero issues with my feet. Sure, I had my fair share of ankle issues (thanks to breaking my ankle as a teenager) and knee issues (thanks to being old and fat) and achilles issues … Continue reading Week 11 – Day 3: Back to the Elliptical
As if things couldn't get any worse! How old do you have to be to injure your back tying your shoe? Or how clumsy? Or how bad at tying shoes? I have no idea what it was, but Wednesday morning when I bent over to tie my shoe, I felt a pain in the right … Continue reading Week 10 – Day 3: Tying Shoes = Back Pain
I lasted about four months. That is all that I could do. And it is a little sad. That's right, folks. For anyone who remembers, I had said that I was going to grow my hair out to donate it to Wigs for Kids like my wife had been doing. But I just can't. I … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 3: I’m Sorry, Doug
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…
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!
