WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/CHROMEO

I don’t want to overload you with links, pick what you want to know about & feel free to skip the other stuff.  The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Don’t feel as though you have to open every link.

No such thing as a stupid question!  Ask me & I’ll try to break it down for you!

I fell asleep to “The Struts” the album “Everybody Wants”

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

 

Monday we had an appointment to check out my wheelchair options.  I get $1000 for life on a wheelchair & likely going to cost $6500, were in debt already might as well go deeper.  4 day weekly exercise total; 400 pushups, 400 leg lifts, 200 crunches, 300 tricep pushups, 80 back flexes, 240 squats.  Remember I’m alternating days.  I do 3 exercises one day, then the other 3 the next day.

 

My back & arm exercises take much more time than my abs & leg exercises.  I like not having to exercise for 2 or 2.5 hours.  I hope this is beneficial in the end.

I’m still not sure which wheelchair I’ll be getting?  I hope to have one ordered between 12:00 – 1:00 on Kim’s lunch break.  Kim was emailing with someone at the place they manufacture the lighter one & was told they could make it with the one change I’d like.  If the salesman in town can get a hold of someone there, I’ll get the 12 pound chair.  If not it will be the 22 pound chair.  So I’ll find out later today.  For me, it wouldn’t really make much of a difference.  The lighter wheelchair will be easier on other people’s back lifting it into a vehicle.  For me both chairs are MUCH easier to move around in, they seem to glide easier with little effort if that makes sense.  The issue is the foot rest.  I use my feet a lot in the house, but if were out shopping or something my legs get tired from lifting my feet off the ground.  I’d like to have that option in the lighter chair.  It normally comes with the foot rest as a structural need, but they do make a chair where the foot rest can be lifted to the side & out of my way.  I would like that option!

I talked with Kim & it looks like next week will be 5 days of cardio.  I find no joy in practicing walking with my walker, but it’s a necessary evil I guess.  BOOOOO!!!!

 

CHROMEO

2 guys out of Québec, Canada.  They have released 6 albums since their debut in 2004.  This pop music HIGH on the sugar side.  I bought their last 2 albums of the 6 available.  The earlier albums just didn’t sit well with me.  No I’m not all metal & rock.  I think it was Alice Cooper that said something to this effect “I can’t have someone yelling at me all of the time!”  I’m rather passionate about all of my music but even I need a break from someone yelling at me all of the time.  Chromeo is the complete opposite of heavy music….

 

2014      WHITE WOMEN

 

2018    HEAD OVER HEELS

 

The new “Halestorm” album “Vicious” is out today!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Next Friday, “Into Eternity” album “The Sirens” will be out on www.bandcamp.com for $15 or email them intoeternityCD@gmail.com if you’d like an actual CD for $20 + shipping.  This is an independent release, all proceeds go directly to the band.

 

I don’t like bashing any band, however when I saw this band playing at half-time in Hamilton, initially the lead singer looked as though she had better things to do aka she seemed very distant from the situation.  I’ve watched it a few times & it debunks my initial reaction a bit, but not enough.  As for the music, I’m good with it, but it’s probably not something I’d listen to multiple times.

 

After listening to the new Metallica album & reading many reviews, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is a gateway album to the rest of their catalogue!  It’s really good!

 

 

The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you!
