So I initially was going to start my "new" program in March but I decided that it was better to just start. Far too often I find myself putting things off until a different time when I could easily start them now. So that's just what I did. Monday found me starting my new exercise … Continue reading Day 288… Starting Anew (again)
Sunday night brings a lot of contemplating. It's the day before the week starts up again and the lady day of your ignorant bliss. It's where you get to look back on all you did during your free time. Unfortunately for me, it brings to life many bad decisions I make. I know I've gone … Continue reading Day 285, 286 & 287… Bruises, Birthdays and Betterment
I chickened out. Wimped out. Woosed out (how do you even spell that word?) I gave in. Gave up. Got out. Basically, I did what I said I was going to do yesterday and not lift. Does that make me weak? I don't think so, but I have no idea. All I know is that … Continue reading Day 186… Yeah, I did It

So it's not like I'm … Continue reading Day 163… Woof Woof Woof!
Well, as promised I made an appointment, left work early and went to the doctor. While news could have been worse, it also could have been better. Apparently the disc between my L5 vertebrae and the sacrum is compressed to near nothingness. I wish I had a picture of the x-ray because it's pretty crazy. … Continue reading Day 108… Old Man Dyer
So I started back up at the weight room today. It's been a while due to doing C25K and having elbow and other pains. But regardless of the elbow, I was back at the gym. It did hurt a bit, was quite tender, but I pushed through. I feel good doing weight training again. I … Continue reading Day 71… Beginning Lifting (Again)
