EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL & CANCER

I fell asleep to “Andy McKee” the album “Dream Catcher” after listening to the brand new live album from “Barenaked Ladies”. I preordered it & got it last night “Live at Red Rocks”

Everything from Andy McKee is acoustic & instrumental. This is the only cover song I have of his.

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” his “Greatest Hits” then about half of “Anthrax” the latest album “For All Kings”

Monday is a Holiday! So I’ll post the weekend update on Monday evening.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for the week; 6000 crunches, 320 leg lifts, & 160 squats.

The squats are one of the most difficult exercises I do. My legs have very little muscle, if I’m not holding something, I’ll fall. I do my squats while keeping my balance with my sliding up & down my transfer pole. I don’t use any force or grab the pole to help me. It’s just there for balance.

I didn’t expect/want the world to stop when I got sick, & it didn’t which is a great thing, everything “carried on” as it should. Having an experience with cancer is something I would never wish on ANYONE. Not everyone reacts the same to someone having cancer. I get that.

PROMOTION? EXERCISE TOTAL FOR THE WEEK

I fell asleep & woke up to “Dream Theater” the album “The Astonishing”. I waited until shortly after 10:00pm & got it then went to bed. It’s not your typical “Dream Theater” with 9 songs averaging 10 minutes in length. Double album 34 songs in total & most songs are 4 minutes long. The longest is almost 8 minutes. There was a lot more orchestral music on it also. I’d say it’s a really good album!

I exercised to “Eve 6” all 4 albums on shuffle.

Exercise total for the week! 40 leg lifts om my back, 40 leg lifts on my hands & knees, 150 squats, 120 pushups, 1260 crunches, 580 meters walking one day no rest periods. Did I enjoy it? No, but you do what you gotta do! When we were going to the field house on a flat surface I do 800 meters with 2 rest periods. After the first 200 meters then after the following 400 meters, then I’d finish up with the last 200 meters. This doesn’t count the long side walk into & out of the building. Our parking garage has slops for the drain. It’s not a flat surface.

I go to www.youtube.com to share these links & if they’re brand new it tells me to not embed them? This musician doesn’t want me to promote their new song, video, or album? Why is it on www.youtube.com then? Police are going to arrest me because I shared a link? Either way, you’re welcome.

I was fine Monday, I’ve been tired all week since Tuesday morning. I would have liked to have just sat on my butt all week, that never happens unless I declare a break.

I don’t watch much NHL at all because most people watch it for the fighting & big body checks. Nobody wants to see this happen to any official in any sport. Really how idiotic is this? It happened on Wednesday, January 27th. If I was commissioner of the league “Bye, you’re done FOREVER”. I saw this as a highlight on Sportsnet.

I think I’m on a “Dream Theater” kick…….poor Kim!
