I fell asleep to “Paramore” the album “Brand New Eyes”

I exercised to “Rush” that album where Geddy Lee sings super HIGH!!!  The album “Counterparts”

Each morning starts with filling Brewster’s dishes.  100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, 40 back flexes, 5 minutes of planking (rest periods not included), & 100 pushups.  Then I lay on the floor, roll over in complete exhaustion, trying to catch my breath & carry on with my day.

Tuesday I was tired & didn’t do all of my exercises.  No planking or back flexes, I just didn’t have it in me.

This week’s total is 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 500 pushups, 20 minutes of planking, 160 back flexes.

What inspired me to do all of this exercise?  I was doing some exercise, then I saw Kevin Hart on The Ellen Degeneres Show in 2014 or 2015.  Kevin Hart said he does 1000 crunches & 500 pushups every day.  That’s why I was doing 1500 crunches a day, then my back went wonky.  I was told to do 2 totally different things.  My chiropractor said I should just stop exercising & do the stretching he recommended.  I went to Kim’s massage therapist & she told me to dial my exercises back a bit but continue doing them.  I couldn’t move so I rested for 6 months, applying ice & heat to it.

Since I can’t do 1500 crunches or any squats for fear of wrecking my back, I’ve very slowly increased my pushups & added planking as Kayll recommended.

Before I exercise every day, I really am not looking forward to it.  I end up just staring at my exercise mat, & after 5 minutes, it’s time to get it over with & get to other stuff that needs to be done.  I don’t think I’ll be purchasing a gym membership.  I can do my stuff here, for free!  I save money that way, keep the membership money & stay at home to exercise.  I’d never go to the gym, because of a million excuses.  I might as well exercise here & save the cash.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

NOTHING BUT THIEVES!!!!!!

Gotta say I love this band!  They’re not metal, or anywhere near hard rock.  They just released their 2nd album titled “Broken Machine”.  I got their first self-titled album & binge listened to it.  I imagine you’ll either love this band or won’t touch them with a 10 foot pole.  The singer sings most of the songs in his falsetto or head voice.

There’s the first 3 songs from their recent album!  Here’s a couple from their first album.

I really like this band, but that’s just me.  His voice might throw you off though.  This could be like an issue with “Rush” & Geddy Lee’s voice?

 

Why does anyone need a $1000 phone?  Does it make phone calls?  That’s all I need, you gotta flip phone for free or $15, I’ll take one of those!  Texting, no thanks.  Does anyone actually TALK to anyone anymore?

 

It’s science, Trump won’t believe it.  Much like climate change is science but he opted out on that anyways.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders play in Ottawa tonight, & the Toronto Blue Jays start their final 3 games of the season in N.Y.  Sunday, I’ll be on the couch watching the final game of a forgettable Jays season!

The one time face of MLB, José Bautista, will not be back in a Blue Jays uniform next year.  The CEO & general manager did not pick up his option year for $18,000,000 next year.  I don’t think anybody will pick him up for that much.  If he lowered his asking price to $3,000,000 maybe he’d get 1 year contract.
He’s not the José Bautista that will hit 40 home runs, he hasn’t hit 30 home runs this year or last year.  He’ll be 37 in a month, I think it’s time to retire.  Only pitchers stay in baseball that long if they can still pitch well.

FACEBOOK IS SLOWING DOWN AS IT TENDS TO DO THE CLOSER WE GET TO THE HOLIDAYS!  THIS BLOG WILL BECOME LESS FREQUENT IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

 

Anyone who has been reading this knows I’m very anti-cell phone.  I don’t have a problem with a cell phone really, it’s more with the way some people choose to use them.  If I’m at a concert & someone is taking a video in my line of sight to the stage, please DON’T do that.  I paid as much as you did to watch a concert.  Not through your 4” screen on your cell phone.  If you want to video a song or 2 go ahead, take 3 or 4 pictures.  Please learn that other people are there & not taking a video of the entire show like you are.  Ask people around you if you’re blocking their view of the stage.  If you want to sit at the show & text with someone the entire time, that’s fine.  I don’t understand why you’d pay for a ticket to chat with people who aren’t there, but if that’s what you want to do, that’s fine with me.  Everyone will use their cell phone differently.  Just please learn live show etiquette?  YOU have every right to use your phone as you choose, maybe make sure it’s not a distraction to others near you?

If I get a cell phone, I’ll likely use it differently than you do.  I’ll use it my way & you can use it your way.  If we are bothering others, we’d better ask if how we’re using it is a problem.  You’re told to turn off your phone in theaters before the movie starts.  I think that rule should be at any live venue as well?

 

Consequence of Sounds review of the movie “Inferno”

The 3rd movie of the 4 book series of “The Da Vinci Code” which is actually the 2nd book.  The “Angels & Demons” book came first, & was infinitely better than the movie.

 

WHAT?  REALLY???!??  I always assumed elders enjoyed “System of a Down”?    Hahahahahahahahahaha!

Another review of the new “Alter Bridge” album “The Last Hero”.  LANGUAGE!!!!  Seems a though any& every “Alter Bridge” fan loves their 2nd album “Blackbird”.  It’s a good album but I’d say it’s the weakest of their 5 studio releases.

This song below was voted to have the best guitar solo of all time?  No mention of “Free Bird” by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” in the top 10 of the reader poll by “Guitar Player” magazine.

I hit my daily goals again this week!!!

Remember this was a 4 day week.  So here it is: 6000 crunches, 400 squats, 320 pushups, & 280 leg lifts

My goals for each day are: 1500 crunches, 100 squats, 80 pushups, & 70 leg lifts.

Normal weekly total should be, 7500 crunches, 500 squats, 400 pushups, & 350 leg lifts.

Before I do the rest of my exercise after the first 50 squats, I’ll be drinking my smoothie, coffee & water.  Just thinking about how much my exercise will suck.  When I finish them I think “Hey that wasn’t terrible at all!”  I figure if Kevin Hart can do 1000 sit ups a day and 500 pushups, there’s no reason I can’t do it too.  I think he said it last year on “The Ellen Degeneres Show”?

When my exercise totals are on, I feel like I’ve accomplished what I expected from myself.  It’s quite a bit like my job was running a printing press.  When I fished a shift, I’d hold a sheet, look at it & think “Hey!  I helped in the process of making this!”  That validated what I was doing.  I kind of don’t see what the results are from my exercises.  I do know that more & more T-Shirts fit though.  Not really my goal, I can’t imagine being satisfied until I’m able to walk on my own.  Until that happens, I’ll be “my own worst enemy” saying to myself “NOT GOOD ENOUGH!”

LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My parents & my in-laws had to adjust quite a bit as well.  We still haven’t been to Kim’s parents place since 2007, before I had cancer.  Her parents & younger brother come to Regina on Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & sometimes in the summer.

My parents had to feed me when I came out of “….m, m, m, my coma”.  I was so weak I couldn’t lift a utensil to my face.  I started to cough one day & my father chimed in “Hey, you just hit me with food, & it went 8’ & covered the wall, your cap on your trach came off”.  If I’m having anything carbonated, best to stay out of the splash zone, or wear a rain poncho!

As much as I’d enjoy daily life being easy, the world shouldn’t & doesn’t stop for anyone!  I’m learning how to keep up with everyone.

 

I’ll get a cell phone one day.  The cheapest piece of junk, leave it off when I’m out, & turn it on only for emergencies.  To call someone.  I don’t enjoy being photographed unless I don’t know about it.  I will not have my email or Facebook attached to my phone & very few people will have the number.  I will also not engage in texting.  I just don’t like the idea of having an active cell phone with me constantly.  I’ll never understand the attraction of being attached to the world “24/7”?

 

I guess I’m a “Star Wars” nerd too.  I saw this & wondered what the timeline was.  I guess “Hans Solo” was born about the same time as “Luke & Leia Skywalker” were born?  I don’t know, I was confused?

I was watching the “Lethal Weapon” TV series the other night & I heard a song I haven’t heard in a long time!

I haven’t heard the entire song since my after grad party!  I still like a few of the songs on this album.

 

I’m sure any help would be appreciated in helping someone with cancer!

Foo Fighters were in a law suit?

http://www.nme.com/news/foo-fighters/97132?utm_campaign=nme-14-october-14-10-2016&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter

Foo Fighters weren’t going to put this song on the album.  Their manager came in after they finished recording this album & said “Hey, what about that song that says best of you 8 billion times?”

 

Review of the latest “Opeth” album “Sorceress”.  This is not a death metal album as they had intended.

I really like this album!

 

Pentatonix shared it……

 

One week from today “The Pretty Reckless” & “Jimmy Eat World”

 

New song from the upcoming album “Battles” by In Flames!

I should listen the album “Come Clarity” by In Flames

 

I’ll catch you on Sunday.  All I see is baseball playoffs in Cleveland & a Saskatchewan Roughriders game in Toronto this weekend!  If you need me, sorry, I’ll be on the couch.
