New Year, New Me, Changing things up at the gym 4

With my lower back injury last fall, I’ve really had to change things up at the gym and modifying what I’m doing, to work with what I’ve got.  And the biggest challenge has been mentally, in al of this… While I am significantly improved, these things take time and, that, I think is the most frustrating part of it all.  For thirty four years, my body has been slightly rotated towards my left hip so now, I’m trying to train my body to work and respond differently and how it should, not how my anatomy and physiology decided to work or […]

What I do at the Gym Now that I’m a Gimp 4

What I do at the Gym Now that I’m a Gimp – Do you like the headline?  I do, I’m a bit dramatic but that’s cool. LOL  So what exactly am I occupying myself with, with all this time I have now that I’ve got some major restrictions going on at the gym?  Do I just say f*ck it and don’t bother?  Oh helllllll no.  Going to the gym is my therapy, a place where I go to unwind and let it all out.  In some ways, I guess you could say that the gym is my church.  I used […]

First Weekend of June 18

******* I’m really glad that June is finally here, but I also find it hard to believe that it’s already June.  Does anyone else feel like this year has flown by?  It seemed that we had weeks, MONTHS ahead of us before our charity bike ride but lo and behold, the event came upon us just like that and before we knew it, it was over with.  And so this was how the first weekend of June went….


Question of Three’s 6

Questions of Three’s  I was perusing some of my old posts back from when I was hanging out over at Blogger or Blogspot ages ago and came across this gem of Questions of Three’s that I just had to update and re-visit.  I’ve now been blogging for six and a half months over in this pretty little new space and I really have to go back and clean up some old posts.  But, as you know, I’m always remarking about time and not enough of it, so I suppose I’ll get around to it at some point… Anyways, if you […]

Paleo Tuesday 10

  It’s Paleo Tuesday!! First, lets get down to brass tax.  A change of plans for this series… This will be the last bi-weekly Paleo Tuesday post I`ll be doing.  I`m going to start doing the Paleo Tuesday posts monthly now, since much of it is repetition by now, seeing on how we`re almost 5 months into it.  The next Paleo Tuesday update will be on Tuesday, August 18th. How much money we’ve spent on Groceries in July thus far: We are about on par with where we should be in terms of spending.  I’d say it’ll end up looking like June […]

Paleo Tuesday 28

  It’s Paleo Tuesday!! It’s Paleo Tuesday again??!!  We are now into July and it’s been one month since I last posted anything regarding our paleo life.  All of this means that we are now sixteen weeks into this Paleo dietary change.  FOUR months, that seems so wild to say, I will try to keep this as brief as possible and not too wordy. So, let’s get to some of the updates…
