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.
Why? Why not, HILARIOUS NINJA BABY!
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.
