WEEKLY EXERCISE TOTAL/ COHEED & CAMBRIA

The www.youtube.com links are there for a point of reference if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

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

5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 300 tricep pushups, 300 back flexes, 360 squats, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches.

I fell asleep to “The Trews” the album “House of Ill Fame”

I exercised to “Dead Sara” the self-titled debut album

This was intended to be earlier.  I got up at 7:30, the power was out from 8:00 to 9:50.  Brewster was freaking out, he has bad anxiety, we have small doses of valium for him, I didn’t want to give it to him.  Instead I spent all of that time with him on my lap, while I had breakfast & got as much ready as I could for my exercise & shower.  Even when the power came back on he was still freaking out.  We had about an hour where he’d freak out at the front closet, or approach it & I would clap my hands to make him stay out of that area, he hates loud noises so that’s what the clapping was for.

I’ve done my exercises, time to shower & have lunch soon.

I’ve decided pushups & triceps will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays, everything else will be Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays.

When I meet someone new, I get quiet after telling them I had brain cancer.  That’s always the first thing I tell people when I meet them.

I don’t want cancer to define me, & I’ve got no problem answering any questions they may have.  I’m just not a fan of telling my story over & over.  As much as I don’t want cancer to define me, it will always be a portion of what defines me.  I figure, there is no hiding my wheelchair or iPatch.  Might as well get that part out in the open & forget about it.

Other things that define aren’t visible, other than I wear shorts year round.  “Aren’t you cold?” is something I often hear in the winter.  If I was cold I wouldn’t be wearing shorts & a hoodie with my tuque & gloves.  I’m usually over heated, so shorts it is, who needs pants?  Pants are only for special occasions!

Other than shorts, an iPatch, & a wheelchair, there’s a TON more to me.  I do tend to shy away from large group gatherings because there are 2 things I don’t want to say to people.  “Hey, read my blog” & I don’t want to barf out why I’m in a wheelchair, with an iPatch, & why my speech is hard to understand.

The previous blog should have been titled TECHNOLOGY/BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.

Well I’ll be glued to Netflix watching the 2nd season of “Making a Murderer”, as long as they don’t push it back to air this time.

And the plot thickens some more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anybody watching “Orange is the new Black” on Netflix?  I gave up after a few episodes of the 3rd season.

How many covers do we need of the song “Shout” I have this original version by “Tears for Fears” on my iPod, but no other ones, don’t need the rest.

OK, I’m biased I REALLY LIKE Big Wreck!

Two albums released today “Greta Van Fleet” & a 4 song EP from “Nothing but Thieves”

 

COHEED & CAMBRIA

8 studio albums & a few live albums.  I have 5 studio albums.  I only really listen to 2 of them.  My friend Elka turned me on to them.  They’re a progressive rock band.  The singer’s voice is quite high, so I’m sure they won’t be for everyone.  I got the albums only in digital form.  They recently released “The Unheavenly Creatures”.  It’s on my iPod on repeat since it’s release on October 5th to the 14th.  Here’s a few tracks from “The Color Before the Sun” & “The Unheavenly Creatures”……

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired…………to self-destruct”, woke up to pee & listened to “Big Wreck” the album “Grace Street”

I exercised to “In Flames” the album “Colony”

 

I did 200 crunches yesterday & 200 today.  My abs really hurt, how on earth was I doing 1500 a day with no pain?

Kim’ stomach is fine.  She’s trying to figure out what it is that bothers her for a day or 2 a week.  She doesn’t get sick, she just has an annoying stomach every now & then.  She’s exercising a bit as well.  She went for a ½ hour run on Sunday, in the exercise room here on the treadmill.

I’m doing some of my exercises, & still stretching my sciatic nerve mostly.  I’m doing a fraction of my crunches & some of my leg lifts.  My daily goal for crunches each day won’t be 1500, it will be a little bit less when I reach it, and 1300 is what I’ll build up to.  I gotta say that doing my exercises feels more normal for me.  Back into my routine a bit, it feels much better!

A follow up to the 2006 release “10,000 Days” by Tool would be more than welcome.

WHO IS ALEX JONES?

I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Naveed”, then “A Perfect Circle” the album “Mer de Noms” & after a pee at 3:30 am “Queen” their “Greatest Hits”.

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

I exercised to “I Mother Earth” the album “Scenery & Fish”

I exercised before I emptied the dishwasher. I also got through my entire workout today. I’m still quite tired though. I didn’t sleep all that well last night. Kim falls asleep in seconds, I’ll be awake for 30 minutes to an hour. “With or without…” music playing.

So who is Alex Jones? I only know him as a loud mouth gun supporter. Yes, Piers Morgan went too far with his anti-gun position on CNN. He didn’t call Alex Jones a “very stupid person”, he called someone else that. For me, that’s crossing the line. Calling someone “stupid” on TV is just wrong, it wont solve anything & nobody should feel good after that.

I’m Canadian, I have no clue who Alex Jones is other than a loud mouth who rarely, if ever, listen’s to anybody else’ opinion. I could google him, but I really don’t care to do so.

Kim hates when I watch this stuff, because I’m quite passionate about this stuff when I see it!

I’m not against the Olympics, I just don’t care to watch most of the events. I’ve seen a person dive. Was it good? I don’t know, they hit the water? I’ve watched swimming & volleyball before, I don’t really need to see it again? I’ve seen a 100 meter, 200 meter & a relay before, I’m good. The events at the Olympics seem very similar to the events I’ve seen at previous Olympics. We had it on here briefly last night, diving was on. I watched for a bit, & couldn’t really tell if it was good dive or a bad dive? They hit the water in the pool 10! 5? What was wrong with that dive? That person landed in the water too? I’m lost, I guess I need to be learned?

WEEKEND UPDATE/ODD COINCIDENCE WITH CANCER????

I still can’t imagine how my cousins & uncle feel. Most children will watch their parents die, but my cousins haven’t reached the age of 30 yet. Cancer is not genetic. I have a hard time agreeing with that statement? So it’s a coincidence that my grandmother died in 1999 of cancer, I was diagnosed with cancer, my grandfather died of cancer while I was in my therapy/rehabilitation program, & now my aunt has died of cancer? That’s a freaky coincidence????

This coming week I intend to get back into my routine of exercise & enjoy the memories I have of my aunt. She’s gone, it sucks………..she did live life to the fullest though, I have multiple fond memories of her. I say this with no disrespect intended. I can’t let the past slow me down, I have to keep moving forward while remembering my past.

That was my intention, my back completely disagrees. I can’t stand up straight, or even move my legs without my back being incredibly sore. So no exercise until I get this kink out of my back, just a pile of stretching

Kim’s parents & aunt came Friday. Kim’s sister & brother-in-law have the spare bedrooms……………..us………not so much. We went over to their backyard for BBQ burgers, salad, & a couple of wobbly pops. Saturday, dad & I went to the football game. Got to watch the Riders lose their 3rd of 3 games this season! Perfect, now nobody will see the Riders coming! Sunday, we went to Sherry & James’ house for brunch. They should all be home now or very shortly. Kim’s aunt is in Melfort which is on the way to Birch Hills.

I’m going with the reason that I’ve never heard of them, until I heard news they were reuniting about the same time as Guns n’ Roses.

HAPPY HUMP DAY (sort of), I’M BETTER

I fell asleep to a few songs by “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone” then changed it to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow”

I exercised to “Alice in Chains” half of the album “Facelift” then “Chromeo” half of the album “White Women”, then finally “Finger Eleven” most of the album “Five Crooked Lines”

Finally! Nothing hurt this morning. I raised my squats total today, hopefully I can achieve that total tomorrow.

Nobody likes feeling sick, neither do I! I don’t have time to be sick! Just a waste of a day for me!

Yes, I squeezed in a small exercise session, just not as many repetitions, sorry, I don’t remember what I was listening to on the stereo? Probably the “Stitched Up Heart” album?

I was watching the “Batman vs. Superman” movie & this is a dark movie. This isn’t just any stand alone Superman or Batman movie. I haven’t seen the “Kill Bill” or “Sin City” movies. This is by far the darkest comic book movie I’ve seen. Henry Cavill plays the role of Superman again, his parents are the same, Amy Adams is back also. I don’t recommend it for anyone under 18. I’d say it’s a Rated R movie, well the “Ultimate Edition” is, the non theatrical version I bought which also has the theatrical version. I like it, but that’s just me. It was slammed by critics, & wasn’t rated as a good movie by others on iTunes. I like it though. I’d give it 81% tomatoes on iTunes. You can rent it on July 19th. This is the “Ultimate Edition” trailer

It’s not hump day for Canadians, it’s only a 4 day week here. Friday, July 1st is Canada Day. I’m not checking but I think Canada is turning 149 or 150 this year?

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL

I fell asleep to “U2” the entire album “Achtung Baby” then “Tremonti” the entire album “Dust” & finally “Stitched Up Heart” the album “Never Alone”

I don’t have time to exercise today. If I do, it will be later on & minimal amounts. Busy day today “Here, there & everywhere”!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for a four week ;6000 crunches, 560 leg lifts, 240 squats, & 20I like0 push ups. Let me “Break it down” for you.

1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts, 60 squats, & 50 push ups, 5 days a week. I’ve got the time for that & no, I don’t get paid for that, well I guess disability & EI checks pay me for that. My left hand is still quite shaky but I can hold things with it if I hold them against my torso. When I add an exercise, of course it takes me longer. So all of that takes me 2-2 ½ hours a day. I’m becoming to good at procrastinating. I don’t start doing my exercise until 9:00am usually now. I like to get started by 8:00 am usually if not earlier. Get it done & out of the way!

With all of this exercise, I’ll never be under 210 pounds. I graduated high school at 185 pounds. I think somewhere between 215-220 is realistic? I am 6’1”.

It’s baseball season & I only know a small handful of other people that like to watch it aka I’m “Lonely” LANGUAGE AT THE BEGINNING!!!!!!!!!!!! Skip 10 seconds & you’re good.

When I get into my brother’s vehicle to go see a metal show in Saskatoon 2 ½ hours away I’ll usually hear 1 of 3 things playing on the stereo

On the odd occasion he’ll play some Chevelle.

Really dude, stick with Billy Joel or Chevelle? I think it was a trip to see “In Flames” in Saskatoon? Billy Joel’s double album of Greatest Hits in it’s entirety. Good tunes while getting ready to see a metal show!

All of my music info came from; first my parents, then radio, then Much Music, always from like minded friends, then I got into metal a little over a decade ago, & now it’s all from facebook. I rarely listen to the radio, for a few reasons. I flip on the rock radio station & I either own it or don’t like it. That & isn’t FM radio supposed to play/advertise a new song or album? I don’t need to hear “Tom Sawyer” by Rush from the 1970s for the 4th time today ( I wish I was joking but somebody at the station must REALLY like that song)

I’ll be sitting in our vehicle somewhere Kim has to run in, & I’ll flip through 3 FM stations & usually turn it off after a total of 10 seconds. If I find something I like, it’s usually on the soft rock station or Jack FM where they truly do play everything. I probably own it, but haven’t listened to it in a while & it urges me to listen to an album when I get home!

All I can tell you is that Paramore’s Facebook page is very active with studio photos!!!!!!

Ben Affleck knew you hated him being cast as Batman. The movie exceeded my expectations! I loved the Christian Bale Batman trilogy! I’d say this is darker and easily lives up to the hype! Out on iTunes for purchase June 28th. Available in store on DVD or Blu-ray in July.

Another Chevelle song Thursday night!!!!

I wonder if Brewster rocks out to System of a Down when he’s left alone?

I at my parents place from the afternoon to the time Kim finished work. Then we had supper & came home shorty after that.

I wrote all of this but the stuff I listened to at the top of this post. It’s now 12:30pm. I’m becoming a fantastic procrastinator! Not a good thing at all. I had lunch after my exercises & listened to the most recent release from “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium”.

OK, he’s dead now. What is done is done. Nobody can change that. It was wrong & the victims will be left to deal with it unfortunately. Let him R.I.P.
