Since I have been tracking my steps with a Fitbit device I have never achieved the 70,000 steps a week goal. So this week is a pretty big deal for me. As I look back on my life this doesn’t really compare to what I have achieved. When I was training for a race I […]Read More Step Goal Achieved!
Today I had too much going on at work to get all but one set done in the am but for some reason was able to get the rest done in the afternoon. Maybe it was because it was Friday. 13,794 steps today and already achieved my goal of 70,000 steps for the week. Woo […]Read More Week 9 Day 5
Easy workout today. Got two sets done in the am and two in the pm. Also got 14,454 steps! So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on […]Read More Week 9 Day 4
Still easing on in but that’s not a bad thing. Have to tell you I may be easing but its not easy. My motivation has waned here this week and for a couple of reasons. One, working back from an injury or even a tweaking is never fun. It can ultimately lead to giving up […]Read More Week 9 Day 3: Still easing

Additionally, I busted out the old foam roller to work on my IT band and […]Read More Week 9 Day 1: Easing on back
Baby Changing Table So we are going to repurpose this buffet which was hanging out on the porch into a changing table. First order of business is to sand it all down so it can take some primer and then paint. Took a while but got it all sanded. At least good enough for primer. […]Read More Functional Sunday: Re-purposing a buffet to a changing table
So since my little experience with ‘pressure’ in my back we put together a little stretching routine to help out. Its got a little yoga and a little stretching. The difference between yoga and stretching is control of the breath. Nice good diaphragmatic breathing while you stretch is basically yoga. So here is the regimen […]Read More Week 8 Day 5: I never said do nothing.
So today while I was on my second set of exercises I noticed something. My back felt a little wonky you might say. I noticed it while doing my push-ups so the third set I just didn’t do push-ups. The pain, and that’s a strong word, the pressure (See Brian Regan stand-up routine😉 persisted and […]Read More Week 8 Day 4: Uh…ouch maybe!
