MagSlim - For the people getting flats on bikes, google Mr. Tuffys bike tire liner. It's kinda like having a steel belted radial tire on your bike, and they're like $5.

You will never have a flat again -- unless its a pinch flat from too little air. Phone Post 3.0
I'll look into that, thanks! Phone Post 3.0

I tore my LCL six weeks ago which is why I didn't have any updates last month or weigh in.  The knee still isn't 100% but I'm just happy it's healed as good as it has and I didn't need surgery.  No insurance = no doctors = used google for everything and did my own physical therapy from injury specific exercises I found on medical websites and youtube.  From what I read (based on severity of the tear) it can take 2-8 weeks to get back to physical activity.  At four weeks I started light workouts with no stress/impact on the knee (mostly upper body/core stuff).  At five weeks I started short distance runs.  At six weeks I'm basically doing everything, just only at about a 50% intensity level from what I'd normally do and of course no high impact stress activities for the knee.  I'm trying to be safe.  I probably could have prevented the tear if I paid attention to what my body was telling me.  My knee was clicking/locking for 2 days but I didn't rest, just kept going.  Sometimes you've just got to learn for yourself (as I did) and know you can only push so hard before you break.  It sucks, nothing but a setback, but also a lesson learned.  Don't forget the body needs rest.

Anyway...my original goal by August 1 was 149...



- I didn't weigh in last month but June 1 I was at 154...so in the last two months I'm down 7 pounds.
- My total weight loss so far is 28.4 pounds.
- Next month's goal is 146.

One pound is nothing but it seems like each time I've aimed for more than my original goals something goes wrong...so I'm going to just stick with it this time.

I got my sn back!! Haha. I did 30 mins of walking/ jogging on the treadmill at a 10% incline. I've been experiencing the strong ammonia smell really bad after my runs again lately and believe I'm suffering ketosis for some reason. I've tried adding carbs beforehand but nothing is working. I don't have insurance so I can't go get checked out but I just applied for my old job because it became available again do hopefully I get it back. Then I can get my blood work done, my wrist looked at, my teeth fixed, and my sinus/septum surgery I've needed haha. All Health! Phone Post 3.0

Well, I am back :p

 

Things were'nt going well for me at the beggining of the year. I was fighting alcoholism and addiction. I had been involved in a battle with addiction for many years. My life (I thought I had under control) was slowly coming appart.

Last March my best friend died due to alcohol. Her passing was my coup de gras and I invited death with open arms. I was too pussy to do things the short n quick way so I drank n got stonned for a month until I thought I had pushed my body and mind to the breaking point. I ended up in a hospital tied to a bed but alive.

I spent the last 4 months in therapy (finished last week). I am discovering myself and the world seemingly for the first time. Many wonderful things have happened on this journey. I will write about them soon for it might help someone out there who is going through a similar situation but is too shy/scared/humiliated to talk about it with anyone. If you are someone who feels he/she needs to talk, pm me.

 

anyways

 

I was 203 pounds in April. I am down to 165 as I type this. I feel GREAT!

I run 3KM in the morning and in the evening every day. I do relaxation before supper. I meditate (i was one of those fucks that laughed at that but guess what, the shit works!). I eat mostly uncooked vegetables, salad, nuts, yogurt, fruit and a fish/seafood meal a week. Loads of water.

In september I am starting my first Jits class. I am also starting weights.

 

Pics are on their way.

 

I was thinking about this thread as the weight came off. I have to say it was so hard to get started but once you start seeing and FEELING the results, it becomes a self motivator.

Another thing that changed is I dont give a shit what I look like. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am starting to love who is looking back not for how he looks but for how he is and feels (writting about myself in the third person is creepy).

Living clean, living sober, living healthy, living good. Living.

Fucking awesome letibleu. U got this man. If u need anything we're here for u. I've dealt with alcoholism myself and its devastating. I was able to get sober and stay completely alcohol free for over a year and a half. Now I'm able to have a beer once in a whole if I want one but the desire really isn't there anymore. Got drunk maybe 4-5 times in the past 3 years and haven't had a drop of hard alcohol in almost 4 years. U can do it man. I know u can. U need anything just shoot me a PM. Phone Post 3.0

No, it got pushed back again. I saw a dr a couple of years ago that put me on permanent work restrictions, so I need to see him again to get them lifted. The soonest I can get in to see him is sept 13th, so it'll probably be a couple of weeks past that before I can return to work. Phone Post 3.0

Going good... Did the Surf n Suds beer Fest 2 weekends ago ... Best day of biz so far. This last Saturday we did a Bocce Ball tourney at a House in Montecito... Was our second best day so far! The lunch services we do on Wed n Thursday around town have been Ok, but the weekend Catering jobs have been making up for them. Tough way to make a dollar though. But I think it's got some potential!

How u living my man? Phone Post 3.0

I've been having a real hard time sticking to my diet and getting enough exercise in. Got a new girl that demands my time, and we've been eating out or cooking unhealthy goodness, haha!

I'm getting serious about it again, starting right now. Since I got my bike, I lost 16 pounds, in the last week or so, I'm back up 3. I will lose those 3 by Friday! I'm done fucking around, it's all health time! Phone Post 3.0

I biked to my friend's house earlier tonight, when I got home I found my front door wide open. Some one broke into my home and stole most of my guns. They didn't touch anything else, as far I can tell, and they left a handful of my guns in the safe. I was fucking around in my safe today and left it unlocked tonight, how's that for luck?
