2015

01January2015

Happy New Year everyone!  Yes I’m back at it this year and I honestly think my walking accomplishment this year will happen.  I will still remain at what I’m doing…maybe just maybe I might be addicted to this, is it bad?  Not sure but my gains came in 2014 and will continue in 2015.

06January2015

Started pool back up, things are going to happen shortly. I have this feeling sooooon I mean really soon. I upped my elleptical machine time for an extra 5 min, right now I’m stopping at level 11. Level 12 would be pushing my luck.

08January2015

Everything is going well, soon things will occur I have this feeling.  Picture of me in the basement striking a pose for the camera.

12January2015

It’s official, I have a ear infection.  I will miss pool a few days including my sexy workouts.  I have a needle in my arm and going to be on antibiotic IV plus ear drops… and it was going soo well too.

15January2015

My last day of IV then just oral antibiotic….I will slowly go back into my workouts and resume pool on Monday, well that’s my plan anyway.

17January2015

Off the IV now just oral antibiotics.  I was thinking elliptical today…it’s not happening, maybe tomorrow?  In any case my mp3 player is charged and ready for action.

20January2015

Everything is good, I might take pool off this week I’m still taking oral antibiotics and I’m not 100%

I’m getting my energy back, it will be unleashed on Monday.  Right now I’ll enjoy my off time plus I have an urge for popcorn.

25January2015

Well I had my popcorn….enough said.  I missed pool today due to snow/wind but tomorrow for sure.

ball

29January2015

I’m back at the pool, yes finnaly. Went ok, nothing to brag about… everyone is happy.

31January2015

I had a thought for summer…haha way ahead wow.

04February2015

Look here, another month.  Is it me or has the time sped up?  There was a snow storm so the pool was off.  However it did not stop me from doing my pushup.

06February2015

I took a picture of the snow, no outside walks for now.  I’m tempted to up my elliptical to 12, I’ll wait till Monday if I can resist?

IMG_0074

08February2015

I’m not sure what’s happening, when I use the elliptical and after a minute my left leg goes side to side.  This occurred 2 times now.  Could I be overpowering my leg or is it drained?  maybe I went to hard on my legs?  I’ll put it down to 7 tomorrow and will see.

11February2015

Upped my elliptical time but dropped intensity level, leg is holding.  I guess level 12 is out of the question right now.  Added new stuff for legs, I guess it was too much.  Pool is going good however…

13February2015o

Ok…here goes, I downed my elliptical level again and upped my time.  Now I did this level a year or so before, I just now move faster.  Too top it all off, I hurt my back again…yes again.  Never underestimate the next day… well now I have to figure something out, I’m not taking time off!

17February2015

Well…I took 2 days off and it’s a bit better.  I will do something light today, I don’t want to squirm again.

20February2015

Tomorrow I will attempt a small workout….I have done very limited things, time to step it up and see.  Pool is going well, I will post a “fresh Image” soon.

25February2015

Back has less pain, Monday I will increase my workouts and will see…. Pool is going well if your wondering.

26February2015

I still have my back discomfort, it’s taking it’s sweet time for sure.  I will slowly increase back stuff, which is 80% of things I do and next Monday I start going crazy… this I need to make up.  That’s my plan… besides summer is close by and  I want to hit fortinos with a walker, some goal eh?

03March2015

Quick update: still with lower back pain but I have increased my tension on my back and it’s not getting worse… drinking milk may be the factor

10March2015

The nice weather is approaching, meaning I will be more outside.  I have removed all back exercises it will be like this till Monday to heal my back.  If I do anything, it is very minimal plus this is working.  I can put a sock on with no pain and it’s not the milk…besides it does the body good.

IMG_0086

13March2015

I’m getting ready for the summer but want to do some things first. Will have a week off from pool(March break) gives me the opportunity to chill with my daughter. I have a plan… if it works. I will continue with my workouts just not that intense as usual.

20March2015

It turns out that I have a back pulled muscle… yes don’t ask  me how because I have spent an entire week of figuring why I have pain.  Now I’m chilling with my daughter and heal in the process.

2015-03-19 18.11.53

22March2015

Daughter has been dropped off and Monday I’m back full swing well…80% don’t want a pulled muscle again.  To start my day tomorrow a cup of milk in the am for a body boost.

27March2015

It’s going well…. I think it is.  I’m more outside now for my exercises.  Smiling away and as a result I can do things I dreamt of last year but maybe its the beef jerky I’m consuming?

28March2015

I made a short video of some of my work, some old and new clips.  Enjoy!

02April2015

Thank you for the positive criticism, I have not received a negative review yet… I will do another video in the near future.  As for news:  still got back pain and still trying to figure it out why?…but I manage and I continue anyway with my exercises.  Pool has improved and I now have a small elbow bruise.  Happy Easter!

06 April2015

I hope everyone had a happy Easter!  My regular schedule resumes.

12April2015

Nothing to report but I finally beat Chess Master if that counts?  Yes, I play chess sometimes…

15April2015

The weather is finally good and my mood is better.  Things are happening faster then expected, could it be the beef jerky I’m consuming?  On a serious note: I believe that I can accomplish one of my goals in 1-2 months if not earlier.

20April2015

Pool soon, yes mmmm chlorine however I’m doing very well… well I think anyway.

22April2015

Sooooo pool is closed today ah.  The weather is crappy and cold plus I have a cramp…. however I still did some stuff and I’m going to sit on my exercise ball shortly.

27April2015

Everything is swell, pool soon.  I want to try something…I think I’m ready if so my workout difficulty will increase 40% or soooo…. well will see tonight.  Got cold again plus I decreased my elliptical 10 minutes,  leg was acting up, I will stay like this for a week.

28April2015

I can say that in 99% I did it and will now stay at it. .. until I pull something.  Other news: still have swelling on the face but in the last 2 days I noticed a drop.  My nero appointment is coming up and I’m waiting for my summer hat I ordered.

01May2015

Ah yes it’s May.  I have a new plan for this month but I won’t reveal it until I can do it easily.

Took my bike out last night for the first time and just missed the rain, maybe 10 minutes haha

10May2015

Just chilled with my girl on the weekend…but I have a plan for tomorrow.  Did I mention it’s now humid outside?

12May2015

Nothing to report, only that I’m yawning a lot today.

19May2015

I’m happy to report of no more back issues, it turned out to be weaker back muscles, since incorporating them I now have no troubles.  I’m more outside now…breathing in the fresh Hamilton air and I got a tan.  No I was not tanning.

26May2015s

Everything is well, the weather got warmer and our tree is blooming.  As for me….I’m here.

IMG_0145

31May2015

It is raining, kind of ruined my plan.   Ahhhhh

04June2015

The weather is a bit silly but adopting to the situation anyway. I believe my balance has increased dramatically I can now wash my hands plus towel dry. Its’ a accomplishment from last year well one of my goal’s… it’s harder than it sounds.

08June2015

I’m taking some time off from pool…I need to I’m way too busy.  In the mean time I’m more focused on my other workouts plus it’s summer well soon.

12June2015

I’m good…I had my glass of milk and things are happening.  Weather is blah but ignoring it unless its really coming down than I’m inside otherwise chilling outside.  Legs are a bit sore, going to take easy on them this weekend.

19June2015

I’m good nothing to report again but my strange craving for Mr Big!!

22June2015

On Saturday I finally did my monorail, its my tester.  However I went on it after my exercises so it did not go so well but better than last year regardless.  I will try it this weekend without doing anything.

25June2015

Everything is going well…..warm outside and the bee’s are flying.  I have a few new exercise idea’s that I want to try tonight.

27June2015

I added some more resistance with light dumbbell’s, now its on!

2015-06-21 09.08.31

03July2015

Happy July!  I’m well…well as I can be.  I started using a ball and dumbbell’s making more weird twists plus more walking on my 4’s with my super variations and thinking it can’t be done.  Boy was I wrong, to think I was not able to do it.

08July2015

Just relaxing today…I think I need it.

10July2015

I made some cookies on the weekend.

16July2015

Sorry for the late news, I just got on the computer.  Face/cheek swelling went down again… when will it finish?  Doing more 4 walking and reading more articles on brain nerves.  Feeling good and refreshed.

18July2015

I hid indoor it’s too hot outside.  I sweated too much my plan has been altered.

menbella

19July2015

Not really planning anything…will see.  I might just drink a beer or two.

23July2015

Everything is well…I had 3 beer’s that night and felt better after each beer.  Beer’s aside, doing more balance stuff and twists.

25July2015

I must things are blooming….doing lot’s of balance stuff.

30July2015

It is not comfortable outside, I tried it’s not happening.

temp

05August2015

The temp cooled off a bit and I took advantage of it.  Got a better stationary bike and I like it, on the elliptical …. well I don’t really “push” not yet anyway.  Missing pool but summer is almost over and I got bitten by a mosquito last night FYI.

07August2015

Nothing really to report….I got a bruise.

13August2015

I did a long bike ride last night, yes the wind was felt.  Did some computer cleaning plus watched some video’s on how to engage core muscles more. I also got back into my elliptical machine, well started to push myself again and yes a sweat drop appeared.

19August2015

I wait until early evening then I go outside, not comfortable otherwise.  I can do my stuff….

gregme

22August2015

Mostly relaxed today however I made a plan of things to do this week.  I did the elliptical and will raise the level of resistance next time.

25August2015

Nothing to report really…. it is cooler.

27August2015

My speech has improved but I’m still waiting for my top nerve to kick in.  It will happen very soon but I have to be patient.  I have increase my workout volume and cardio for now.

01September2015

Ahhh the heat.  It’s impossible to do anything outside, if I do it’s very short and the sun is down.

04September2015

Still humid, I do very little outside.

bike15

07September2015

Can you say heat!  Well I did maybe 5 minutes outside but did more inside and still had a sweat drop.  I energized my self with a cold 2 maybe 3 beers.  I will resume pool next week, I was thinking this week but warm water ummm not right now.

11September2015

16September2015

Got warm again and as a result I’m outside more.

22September2015

Well to start off, the weather is more comfortable so this means I’m outside enjoying the air until winter comes.  I have not started pool yet…. soon I hope.  Couple Dr checkups nothing happening to report but  I got a ladybug bite mark YES  a ladybug.

29September2015

Face has much less swelling and opening mouth looks more oval however still pulling but less noticeable.  I made some minor achievements but not on command a few more days is needed.  There was an invasion of fruit fly’s outside in the evening and I might of swallowed a few, in other news: nothing to report.

07October2015

Happy October..yes I know a bit late. I have a small amount of swelling left on the cheek but I hope it ends on the end of the month. Nothing really to report but I’m slowly looking at Christmas gifts.

11October2015

Happy turkey day!  well in a day….. I have relaxed this weekend and I must say, my body is thanking me.  I went a bit hard this week….well I think.  Nothing else to report.

18October2015

Everything is well…. election tomorrow and I got my vote mode on.  Weather is a bit colder and not wanting I putted on my gloves/hat. That’s all….

30October2015

The costume is set for tomorrow, things are going forward.  My face swelling is very little now and my elbow bruise is gone.

04November2015

Last night for the first time I brushed my teeth standing up….I know shocking and to think I would not be able too.  Crazy!

12November2015

Very windy today but I took advantage of it by hitting the rail and doing some standing exercises with the added difficulty.

16November2015

I have subscribed to my favorite health magazine, I was before but who knows I might just learn something new.  Enjoying the warmth actually went for a bike ride last night, maybe today?

23November2015

I started back the treadmill, it was neglected a bit.  I thought it be worse, only 3 minutes lost before the tripping.

09December2015

The weather is nice so far this new month.  Spending more time outside…. looked at the blooming flower.

IMG_0263

13December2015

I went for a bike ride last night and the grass was green.  The earth is spinning slower too, so it makes sense everything is shifting.  Shopping is complete and I now await Christmas, snow you ask?  Not sure but I’m optimistic….to a degree of course.

22December2015

Ok… weird, grass is still green?  Plus I think I saw a bee, anyway.  Christmas is almost here and happy.  Nothing really new but going to slow down for a few days due to Christmas.  2016 is almost here, is this the year for me?  I have things planned and going to try to achieve them.

29December2015

Well Christmas is over now New Years….new resolution made, will it happen is another thing to accomplish.  Finally some snow…will it last?  I don’t think so, it’s already in the plus, besides better for my walker and no snow bumps.
