I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Happiness is not a Fish that you can Catch”, “The Tragically Hip” the album “Trouble at the Hen House”, “Led Zeppelin” the album “Physical Graffiti”, & finally “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”

I exercised in silence today.  I’ve been having issues with my iTunes library, but may have it fixed today, I hope.  The guy I’ve been dealing with in the Apple customer service is FANTASTIC!  I’ve never been this impressed by any customer service person!  I’ve been working with him & the engineers at Apple for about a month.  He’ll call me out of the blue just to let me know he’s still working on my case.

 

500 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 200 back flexes, 100 triceps pushups.  I achieved all of my exercise goals this week.  That always puts a smile on my face!

I could use a smile this week.  I’m getting stronger physically, which means I’m able to help out around the house more.  Kim is working herself way too hard, work & exercise for her boxing charity.  I try to get as much as possible done before she gets home, dishes, dishwasher, cooking, cleaning, etc.  Trying to do regular stuff at top speed gets me extremely stressed out!  By 3:00 pm I’m very hot/sweaty & tired.  I can’t tell you why or what I’m stressing out about, but I am.  Mostly it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day.

The reason I’m in a wheelchair is because I cannot walk without something to hold on to.  My legs work, I can get into our walk in shower after I carry my shower seat in there, I can walk with a chest high walker, I can reach the top shelf of our pantry by using the door frame to stand up, etc.  Our place has grab bars in each bathroom, & I have transfer polls I use to sit on the couch & to get into bed.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or just because I’m doing more stuff now that I’m able to?

November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada.  A day when we take a moment to honour, thank, & remember previous veterans & current soldiers keeping us safe.  I think this year is what us forgotten Canadians really need!

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTINUE TO KEEP US SAFE & THANK YOU TO THE VETERANS & THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES KEEPING US SAFE!

 

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

 

This type of thing should happen at every public event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can’t tell you how onboard I am with this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right at the door someone should send anyone with a cell phone back to their vehicle.  It happened to me years ago, & made total sense!  I had it turned off anyways.  You have to turn it off in a movie theater, why not a concert.  Have some self-control.  Take a picture & a video of your favourite song, then put your phone away.  If you can’t do that, leave it in your vehicle or at home.

 

No, I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson, but he makes a valid point here.

 

Paramore is actually selling cassettes online, odd.

When the Toronto Blue Jays start spring training I have a wish list for the team.  3 new everyday outfielders, new everyday short stop, and possible new 2nd baseman.  1st base, 3rd base, & DH can & should remain the same.  Biagini, Osuna, Tepera, & Ramirez all in the bullpen with others.  Estrada, Stroman, Sanchez, & Happ as starting pitchers.  If all of this is possible that would be great!  Any of the new players should have speed, bat left handed, & have a good batting average & on base percentage.  Mr. Atkins & Mr. Shapiro, please don’t put the fans through another 2017?

When Corey McDonald started SIAST shortly after me.  He showed me the path to what is now my favourite “Soundgarden” album “Badmotorfinger”.  I pulled out the “Superunknown” album, & Corey asked if I had heard “Badmotorfinger”, I hadn’t, so he lent it to me the next day.  Since then that album it’s my go to “Soundgarden” album.

 

After hearing that album once, I was hooked & bought it ASAP.  Corey then opened my eyes to “Pantera” & I got hooked on “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”

This was in the early 2000s.  I started SIAST in September of 2001, my 2nd week was when 9/11 happened.

 

I’m not crazy, someone else just praised “Batman vs. Superman”!  Others have seen “Justice League” & found it to be the best movie in the DC universe!

I have “Thor Ragnarok”, “Justice League”, & “Star Wars VIII” to see.  I see good times ahead!

 

Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!  This is MY dark side of Rush.  Foo Fighters & audience fan.  LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

I fell asleep to “Trivium” the album “Silence in the Snow” followed by “Muse” the album “Black Holes & Revelations”

I exercised to “Econoline Crush” 3 albums on shuffle.

400 crunches, 400 leg lifts, 390 pushups, 160 back flexes, & 20 minutes of planking.

That’s 100 crunches, 100 leg lifts, now 100 pushups, 40 back flexes, & 5 minutes of planking each working day.

I did 90 pushups on Monday, then figured I could suffer through 10 more the rest of the week.  I’d increase my crunches to 700-1000 but not until I’ve had back surgery.  At that point I’d throw my squats back into the routine as well.

My back is fine at the moment, it does flare up once in a while though.  I’ve had this issue since ’96 or ’97 in high school!

I can’t even imagine how people in my life felt when they heard the news that I had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

Even now people ask if they can help me with something.  I get that, a guy who is physically disabled will say “Yes please” on most occasions.  I on the other hand try to figure out how to do things on my own.  It may take me longer or after a few tries & if I can’t figure it out, I’ll accept any help.

I know at times I can be stubborn about asking for help, that’s my pride taking over.  I like the challenge of trying to be more independent.  When I figure something out, that’s one less thing people don’t have to worry about me doing on my own.

I really don’t want others to worry about me.  If I need help with something I will ask.  Please don’t worry about me?  Hold my beer & watch this!

We have this upcoming week off.  Tuesday evening I made a list of our commitments for the week here.  Our week off became very busy, in a good way though.  Lots of people (7?) from out of town will be here to see us & partake in other festivities!

I’ll be checking Facebook & email, just no blog posts until Monday, September 4th.

I liked the last Taylor Swift album.  It was all pop music, no country music in sight.  I think she’s at that point where she can make whatever type of album she wants.  Full Disclaimer, I never thought I’d say ‘I liked a Taylor Swift album’

Friday evening, I watched the baseball game while slightly intoxicated.  It felt like an 18 day work week to me.  I needed to cut loose somewhat.  I don’t even work at a real job, I was just exercising as normal.

Best part of the weekend thus far is as of Saturday after the Jays game they have won 4 games straight & have won 7 of their last 10 games with 7/25 of their everyday roster being on the disabled list.  2 of them are expected back this week.  At the moment they have $85 million not playing due to injury.

As for mother’s day, BBQ burgers are what mom’s craving.  Unfortunately Kim’s mom lives a few hours away.  Happy mother’s day to my mother-in-law.  Sorry I won’t be on here much this weekend as usual.  Especially this weekend, very busy!

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

 

Kim & I will be binge watching “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix.  If you haven’t started watching it, what’s wrong with you?  Hahahahahahaha!

We’ve already watched the first season of “Riverdale” on Netflix.  It’s an original Netflix show, but it airs on the CW channel before that episode is on Netflix?  It’s the characters of the Archie Comics in a murder mystery show.

I’ve listened to the new Paramore album “After Laughter”.  It has a distinct 1980s pop sound throughout the album, in a good way.  It’s a light summertime album.  I really like it!  Each song is different.  They don’t get any praise from me the first listen, but by the time I’ve heard them 3 times I’m hooked!  Reminds me off the “Fine Young Cannibals” album “The Raw & The Cooked”!  I love that album also.

 

Tool, I think we’ll have to wait the entire 10,000 days from the release of “10,000 Days” in 2006.  The good news, we’ve been waiting 10 years already only 17.3 years to go!!!!!!!!!!

 

25 years ago.  Pearl Jam’s MTV unplugged

 

I don’t waste my time & energy hating a band.  I just choose not to listen to certain bands such as AC/DC, Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, Metallica, KISS, Guns n’ Roses, etc.  If you like them, it’s all good with me.  I like Motorhead & they’re band where each song sounds similar, I just prefer their sound.  I only have 4 of their albums & 2 of them are greatest hits albums.  I don’t need anymore, they’re all very similar

 

 

As for the Rush comment on the previous post.  I like Rush, just has to be post 1985 for me.

I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” the album “Live & in Stereo”

I exercised to “Paramore” the new album “After Laughter”

100 crunches, 50 leg lifts, & 30 pushups per day.  Weekly total is 500 crunches, 250 leg lifts, & 150 pushups. I won’t be raising the total of crunches for a while (as much as I’d like too), leg lifts will increase, & the pushups have already increased by 10 a day.

All of these numbers feel very low to me at the moment.  I feel like I can & should raise the amount of reps because I know I can do them.  I agree though to carry on with caution.  The leg lifts work on my lower ab muscles which the crunches don’t activate & they’re done lying on my back, at some point I’ll ad the lifts on my hands & knees.  I’ll ad some back flexes next week.  Flat on the ground, front side down, then lift all of your limbs at the same time.  Probably 10-20 of them.

Although it feels like I should do more, it feels good to do something productive, no matter how much I do.  Sitting around with a bad back is something I do not want to do again!

My doctor called looks like I’ll more than likely have a back operation YAY!  He’s going to call the same surgeon that did my brain surgeries.  I’m not worried about the strong possibility of back surgery, I’m worried about the recovery time.  After the doctor called, Kim teared up, she doesn’t want me to have to deal with something major again.  So I told her “Don’t worry about stuff like this, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 seconds or what will happen in surgery or after, we’ll deal with whatever when it happens”.  I’m anxious for this back thing to be fixed once & for all, & get back to exercising.  This stretching stuff is getting old.

Kim’s parents came down from the Prince Albert area.  We had Easter with them & Sherry Friday night.  Saturday was my Dad’s birthday.  Kim had a bad chest cold that moved to her sinuses & just continued to get worse as the weekend progressed.  She stayed home Saturday to rest.  She was going to go shopping with her mom & sister & then come to my parents for supper.  She just really wasn’t up to doing anything.  My brother & his girlfriend drove me home, dad picked me up in the afternoon.

Kim ha Thursday & has Monday off.  I’ll see how she feels after supper & we may watch a movie if she’s up to it.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.  Slow/Quiet week.  Stretching everyday & many routine appointments to come by the end of July.

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

I figure it’s close to the holidays, so 1-3 more blogs & my list of albums of the year should do it for 2016.  Yes, I already know what my New Year’s resolution is & I don’t make resolutions often.  I plan to add cardio to my exercise list.  Recumbent exercise bike or walking with my walker every Saturday morning.  I’ll need help & Kim has agreed to go with me.  We can walk in the parkade &  I’ll need help on & off the exercise bike.  Of course I’ll be doing that here.  No point in me spending money on a gym membership when I can do that here!

This pinched nerve thing can go away anytime.  It felt really as though it was “on the mend” during the week then on Saturday evening watching a movie with Kim, I had to ask her if she could move to the other couch so that I could lay down on my side.  At the moment it’s nearing 7:00 am on Sunday, December 11, 2016.  I’ve listen to 2.5 albums on my iPod while trying to get comfortable in bed, got up, shaved, had breakfast, poured a coffee, & now I’m here.  Waking up because of pain that early, not cool.

Tuesday evening, saw my chiropractor today & he’s confused as to why it hasn’t healed?  Another message therapy & another chiropractor appointment if needed.  4 weeks down the toilet exercise wise.

 

And all of the disbelievers will rant about how this is such a waste of time.

Canada tends to get the typical “Canadian” tour from most groups.  Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver.  All are minimum a 2 or 3 day drive from Saskatchewan.  As much as I love live music, there’s no way I could justify sitting in a vehicle that long for a concert, & flying is too expensive!
