Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

5 day exercise total; 600 leg lifts, 450 crunches, 450 squats, 300 back flexes, 250 curls, 200 tricep lifts w/5 pound weight, 150 shoulder raises w/5 pound weight,  stretching, & yoga.

I fell asleep to “The Wallflowers” the album “Bringing Down the Horse”

I was up too early to play music.  I played a few albums while trying to sleep.  This did the trick “Testament” the album “The Gathering”

FYI-That’s Jacob Dylan singing, Bob Dylan’s son^^!


I couldn’t sleep last night, too hot in here!  Yes, we’re still waiting for the new compressor for the A/C in our suite.  I could get angry, but what’s the point?  It won’t get the compressor here any faster.  It will do more damage than good.

We went for a drive to McDonalds last night.  I just wanted a medium vanilla shake to cool off.  I was doing some HOT yoga yesterday, unintentionally HOT!  There was a guy with a sign asking for food.  We get to the drive through & just order a couple of cheese burgers for him.  I thought afterwards “Ah, crap we should have got a 2 cheeseburger meal with a cold pop for him!!”  He was very thankful & gracious when I handed him the bag though.  Doing little things like that make me & others happy!  Much better than being a #@$&^% making me & others feel like crap.

Tuesdays & Thursdays I stretch, do some yoga, & use weights.  There’s not a certain amount of stretching & yoga, with no specific amount of them to do, & no blog to post, those days often take longer than 1 ½ hours.  Monday, Wednesday, & Friday reach an hour-1 ½ hours of exercise.

The therapists at the Wascana Rehabilitation Center worked hard on my core muscles aka my abs.  Leg lifts & crunches are both meant to activate my abs.  That’s my reason for doing those exercises 3 days a week.  I’m positive that under my 1 ½” of fat I have a glorious 8 pack.  Well, that’s the story I’m sticking to!

I’ve lost weight while building some muscle.  I’m not on any type of diet, I just keep my food intake healthy & other stuff in moderation.  I’m not looking to be a body builder or trying to slim right down.  I’m trying to walk!  Everything else is a cherry on top of whatever your favourite dessert is!  Yes, I eat dessert, in moderation to what I used to.

I don’t like the feeling of being full or hungry.  I much prefer being comfortable after a meal.  Balanced portions of protein/meat & carbs/vegetables or more vegetables than meat in most cases.  Personally, I don’t believe in a diet for everyone.  I think everyone’s body will react differently to whatever they put into their body.  My doctor put me on a thyroid pill since it was underactive.  1 pill a day did the trick, I’ll be on that pill for a very long time, like forever.

As far as my mental health goes, I haven’t had my second appointment yet.  They increased one of my anti-depressants at my previous appointment & it has helped somewhat.  I asked if I could also be referred to a therapist to talk to.  A pill increase won’t likely solve everything, hopefully the 2 together will.  I’m pretty sure my “…pills are kicking in…”

Sorry this is a bit later than usual.  I was out watching my cousin’s daughter play in a fastball provincial tournament.  Extra innings, great game, unfortunate loss by 1 run, & a VERY questionable call by the home plate umpire.  Nice to get out & watch a good game live in the shade on the first base line!  Aubrey is good now & she’ll get even better!


Top 10 rock & metal songs so far of 2019.



I’m all for Billie Eilish especially this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ed Sheeran is out today!  “No.6 Collaborations Project”



I’m a casual fan of their first album still.  I’ve played/sang “Higher” from their 2nd album, both or all 3 chords.  The first album has some lasting power though!  Most of the bands on this part of the blog I haven’t seen live.  Concerts out of province are a little out of our price range.  Priorities mortgage payment or concert?  I have seen many concerts in Saskatchewan & a few in Alberta though in the past.




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!
