thanks for that prime.. Grin i do relax sometimes...lol i think i am a bit of A+B...

So am I a bit of A and a bit of B. I am right brained for example. However, I am incredibly impatient. Often when I relax, I feel like I am being a slouch. Also, I am always thinking about the things I should be doing. Active relaxation works best for me; like when I take the puppies to the dog park to play. They play while I walk the perimeter of the park. I find this really relaxing.

Incidentally, you do know that one of the causes of colitis is stress.

I just got home from the gym. The weather was nice this morning, so I put on shorts as opposed to slacks. I don't know why, but this inspired me to get my butt to the gym for a workout.

I started with 20 minutes of cardio. Then I hit the complete Nautilus circuit. I did one set of 12 reps on each piece of equipment. The gym has a lot of Nautilus equipment. There are at least 2 machines for each body part and sometimes 3. After working every body part using wimpy weight levels for me, I did some stretches on the Precor stretch machine. I mainly stretched hamstrings, lower back, upper back and shoulders, which is about half the stretches outlined on the machine. The last thing I did was hit the free weight area for a forearm and neck work out. There are a couple of reasons why I kept the resistance light; one is that I didn't want to do anything that might aggravate my sciatica and the other is because it has been quite awhile since I done any resistance training and I didn't want to make myself so sore that it would cast a negative shadow on my next workout.

I plan to go back tomorrow to do cardio and core building exercises and stretches. Then I will hit the sauna hot tub and looking at my much to white legs a few minutes in the speed tanning bed.

I had no idea what I was going to do when I went to the gym today. I feel like I did pretty good, all things considered. Enough with this sciatica and depression nonsense I have been posting about. Who knows, maybe the Testosterone Cypionate finally kicked in today.

At this moment I am finishing a glass of mango and banana juice from Naked.  Their drinks are all natural smoothies with no added sweeteners. -Pretty healthy stuff, in my opinion, but also expensive with a fairly short shelf life.

I woke up sore. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, although my workout was beyond conservative when it came to the added resistance. When one slacks off for as long as I have, they should expect to feel a wee bit sore after their first workout in a longtime. Actually the soreness makes me feel good, it brings back memories of earlier times and reminds me that I did something as opposed to nothing. I was a bit concerned that my sciatica was somewhat aggravated....I'll work though this though.

I am no computer wiz, but this is one of those times when I wish I lived closer to you. My instincts and computer experience suggests that this is just an easily worked through glitch. I would like nothing better than to fix it for you, but to do that I would have to be there fooling around with your laptop.
I appreciate the kind thoughts and I am glad to hear that you think it's a glitch. I still haven't had it seen to by anybody locally as I am paranoid it will come back to me with something else wrong. I need to suss out someone good to fix it. I will start asking people after Easter. Training is going okay. I have had a couple of very busy weekends. Kiss concert was incredible and the icing on the cake was when a roadie handed me a guitar pick with Paul Stanley's autograph on the back. The ink was still wet. Its taken me 33 years to get an autograph from a kiss member. Today was my 5 month check up from the surgeon. He was happy with my nose and said its very clean and my ears are perfect. I had them looked at as well. He took pics and compared them to last time and we can see that the bridge is slimmer. I have noticed that when I do cardio or weights that I am not getting anywhere near as much swelling as I used to. Here's a pic, won't be posting anymore until october which will mark one year for my op.

Other demands on my time got in the way of my making it to the gym today. Besides having a great lunch with a friend, I spent the rest of the afternoon at the Capitol in Salem, Oregon testifying at a rules committee hearing for SB 822 which seeks to reduce contractual public employees retirement benefits. Really fun stuff. I had dinner at 8:15 p.m. My sweetheart of a wife waited for me to get home so she and I could enjoy dinner together. Sometimes I just love her to pieces!

Tomorrow, my sister is having an angiogram and likely an angioplasty. So for me this means I will be back in Salem at Salem hospital to support her for most of the day. She is scared shitless. My friend Pat who had this procedure many years ago said it is easier than going to the dentist. I plan to share this nugget with my sister tomorrow. Hopefully, it will placate her fears.

So it looks like Friday will be the day I hit the gym again. The only other thing scheduled for that day is attending a board meeting.

I love omelettes.   Tongue I haven't eaten any Easter eggs and don't intend to. It's Easter Friday here today and I am having lunch with the family. I told everyone not to get me chocolate. Mum gave me a small box of chocolates.  It's cooling down nice here although it was very humid yesterday and I couldn't stop sweating all day. I will start laying in the sun soon as soon as I get a new sunbed.

Karen,

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. Are you dying eggs for your daughter to find? I remember my wife and I doing that when our kids were young. Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make it so wonderful. Our kids are grown and long ago gone from the nest. I seems silly to dye and hide eggs for our two canine children, when they would much prefer Milk Bones. So I guess we will have to settle for a more adult style Easter.

We have invited friends for Easter dinner. I am not clear on what we are fixing. We had thought of a rack of lamb, but one of our friends dislikes lamb.

My sister will be with us too. I am bringing her home tomorrow from the hospital. She had an angioplasty today and she is not supposed to climb stairs, Her apartment is on the second floor. Our home has three bedrooms on the main floor. She will be using one of those bedrooms while she recovers. I never thought I would be caring for my sister who is almost 15 years younger than I am. My other sister died a few years back from oat cell cancer which had riddled her body. She was barely 50 years old.

It appears that evil rotten me is going to outlive most of my family. This is cruel punishment indeed for my misdeeds over the years.
