I Aint Dead Yet

As long as I can, I will. Don’t worry, I asked the doctor if it would be okay to workout. He said the only thing I can’t do is bang my head against the wall.

Labor Day was eventful. I worked for a couple of hours in the morning then spent a few hours on the beach with my sister and a friend. I had an infected bug bite that was getting worse by the minute. You know how family and good friends get. It was decided that I was going to the emergency room after the beach…I agreed (guys, thank you for convincing and taking me). So I spent the rest of the day in the ER, missing the gym in the process (gym closes early on public holidays) This is what I looked like after the surgery:

The funny head thingy, bandage made me look a little ridiculous. But it wasn’t going to stop me. And yes, it bloody hurt. But it still wasn’t going to stop me. The doctor approved it…so it was no excuse!

I completed a fantastic chest, biceps and a little bit of abbs workout. The wound was hurting, but the workout pain was definitely worth it!!

Got to Use the Good Energy

I must admit, it’s been an excellent start to what looks to be a promising week. Sunday was a pretty much all day beach day, but not before I managed to get in an early two hours of football (soccer). I usually play football in the afternoon every Sunday. When I heard that there was a relaxing beach day planned, I had to find a morning game which meant rolling out of bed really early and onto the football pitch. We topped off the day with a barbecue dinner, grilling some chicken and lamb….protein, though I did experience a few bumps in the day with regard to my nutrition, munching on some pretzels and a few Jelly Beans. Overall though, it was a day filled with good energy, good people, great exercise, and good nutritionally healthy food. Which leads me to today, Monday, another good day in my health, life and fitness journey, completing a solid chest, biceps, and abbs workout in the process. The past two days especially Sunday made me remember the importance of creating and enjoying good, positive energy from which to draw further energy and strength to be utilized during and stimulate the journey for the rest of the week.
