5:03 minutes of planking over 6 planks. The first 3 were rather short takes where I’d finish a 30 second plank, then I hear Kim say “Oops, I took a picture”? Or some type of oops. I’ll put my planking videos from Wednesday to today on the Facebook page? Today’s video hasn’t come to the cloud yet record high for me of 1:39 minutes.
There won’t be any stairs during this virus stuff. I don’t really want to touch a public railing or clean them before & after I’m done.
I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “What the Dead Men Say”
I exercised to “Big Wreck” the album “…but for the sun”

My mantra for the year has been & still is, if I have to say “I can’t” that’s not the way to say it. I must say “I can’t yet”. Don’t cut yourself short!
I said on Tuesday’s post that “I’d like to get a job so people don’t think I’m a “mooch”. I was talking with Kim this week about this. Specifically I asked “Do you think I earn my $27,000-$28,000 disability check each year?” She see’s me busting my butt 5 days a week. She says I earn it. I don’t have the time to waste getting comfy on the couch & watching TV all day. I record EVERYTHING. If I don’t have time to watch it, which is typical for most shows, I watch it when I have time or on the weekend.
I don’t exercise for fun, although it does feel pretty good after despite me feeling “exhausted” after. I started planking once a day & Kim has been taking videos of me.
I don’t want to be known as someone that sits around all day, watches TV & movies & does nothing else. Sure the pay is preety sad, but on the flip side, it’s for me to get better. So all of those exercises at the top of the page that you might skip, that’s my work week. I start every morning, 5 days a week with 1 ½ – 2 hours of exercise. 2 days of weights & yoga, & 3 days of everything else. That’s my job & I take it seriously. Since January when I measured my muscles & weighed myself, even I can see a difference. I’ll do another round of measurements & weight again in June so you can tell I’ve been doing something.
If I wasn’t physically handicapped we would likely have had a child. I physically couldn’t handle a young kid 24/7. Everything an able bodied person does easily takes twice the amount of energy out of me. Kim cleans the kitchen in 30 minutes and she’s tired. I clean the same kitchen in 45 minutes and I’m sweating.
Every day before a week of work starts, I make my pre-made boiled eggs, pitcher of vegetable juice & bake my frozen fish. My license is indefinetely suspeded by my doctor. Kim is the one that gets groceries for us. Kim does a WHOLE BUNCH more. Everything we do is for both of us other than our personal hobbies. Kim’s big on photography & is now doing it as part of her job!
STAY INSIDE PEOPLE! I think this speaks for itself?! The length of your hair shouldn’t matter, especially if you’re inside?
……and people constantly used to ask me “Why do you not want to go to Las Vegas?” I know not every American is this way, but these are the citizens that are typically on American National news. I was watching Canadian National news & Regina local news on Thursday, constantly frowning & shaking my head in disgust. America starts its gradual opening today & on May 4th Canada will too. Why? Is another month of isolation going to kill us or will the Covid-19 stuff kill us? Which do you think is more likely?
Globally 0.06% of the population has died of Covid-19. Some countries have yet to go 24 hours without a new case. This is according to the W.H.O. website as of Thursday afternoon. Yes, North America has a privilege in the world. Are our Governments out of money? Why are we reopening if the confirmed cases aren’t 0% without a vaccine? I’m not trying to be an alarmist by any means, I know things will return to some type of new normal eventually. This seems a bit premature, especially when we’ve been told there is a second wave of this virus coming after reopening.
I don’t even like having to clarify this since it shows my ignorance so well. Kim pointed out to me that it could come off as though I’m looking for anybody to buy a guitar for me. Not the case at all, it’s just something I really enjoy doing & talking about, much like my father about rum, electronics, music, etc. To be VERY CLEAR I INTEND TO SAVE FOR THE GUITAR. Besides, that aqua colour will really bring out the blue in my eye……& the black satin back will bring out the colour of my iPatch!
There were SO many other people that needed/deserved help before Covid-19 happened & now that it has, there are even more. I’m alive & well, people I chat with regularly are doing well. As long as that stays the same, everything is OK. I hope this helps put things into perspective for everyone at this time.
YAY “Trivium” day!
“Lamb of God” may have delayed their album release until June but they released a new song from it.
