update part #2

Ok so update.
The back well, better some what. For the first time in over a year I can bend and touch my feet. The pain has stopped me from that but now it seems better.
So the new Doc seems to be much better, he has a much better sports base and has some great news, He sees no disc problems as the other doc did. He see more of a alignment problem at the pelvic area with the spine, everything is tipped to the right. The X-Rays were kind of cool and I got a totally different kind of adjustment and the back feels better.
As for the weight well some has come off , so far a total of 24 lbs, so what s that mean, well first I weighed more then I thought and two I have more to lose. The good ....... I lost 24 lbs in 5 1/2 weeks from mostly diet and some working out.
See Yaaaaaaaa.......................

And were"BACK" to this again

Same shit different day, so the diet is going great(well good) and now this shit. the back has been hurting for a couple of weeks but nothing I can't stand( with some pain pills) but this morning it went over the top.
So I look up my Doc in our new insurance to find out he not in our plan, SHIT, so now I have to go see a new guy at 11am to see what he can do. This guy is more of a sports guy so I hope this will help.
I hate this crap, I finally am starting to feel good after the shoulder injury and now my back goes out, WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!
Well thats my rant.

1/17/08 ride and the diet.

30 min on the trainer and 10 min on the elliptical and that's all I could stand. Tried to get the Power tap to work but no luck. Would like to met the guy I got it from at the swap in a dark alley with a bat. So now I have to send the hub in for service and 200.00 bucks. Well that's what I get for $50.00.
The diet is going great, sticking to it gets easier and easier every day, the Coke is all gone and the energy is coming back up.
The shoulder is better and tightness is all gone, still a little pain when I push to hard but it getting better.
See Yaaaaaaaaaaaa...................................................................

As I got some new ones I no longer need these, $100.00 and there yours.
Great shape, I think they will need some new pads but they still have some good life in them.
The bushings in the levers have be upgraded by Hayes and they come with the frame brackets and rotors..

Yes it is true, As of last Friday I have started my diet for the 2008 race season. After taking
most of the 2007 season off I really want to go into the season feeling my best and lighter.
So I started the six meal a day plan, six smaller meals a day and no food after 9pm. So far its OK and I don't seen to be having a problem with food but kicking Coke (Soda) is the pits. After four days the slump of no caffeine is a lot better and my energy is coming back up.
Tonight starts the work out on the exercise stuff in the basement and some weights. I gave myself five days from the start of the diet to be off the bike cause I figured my energy would be in the shitter and plus Erica's off tomorrow so she can watch Tess when I'm in the basement.
The goal is 25lbs by the first race of WORS, that would put me around 190lbs and that should help with the hills. So we'll see.
Hope to see a lot of you at the swap on Saturday.
See Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa

What a year already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well what can I say, ya its be awhile but thing have been a train wreck as of late.
Christmas went well with making the rounds to three different houses and trying to keep Tess happy and content all the while. So we then plan for a New Years party with the Timm's on Monday night. Friday Tess starts pulling on her ears, yep ear infection, we head to the walk in clinic and as we though she has one, not bad but anyway . By Sunday Tess gets more sick, not bad but bad enough, all Monday Erica's calling me and I'm calling her"how is she, is her temp up?". Things seem good, a little temp but nothing to worry about. I get home and off we go to the Timm's , we walk in and John calls Tess over for her birthday present.......................... a pink TREK trikster , how cool is that. As soon as we found out we were having a girl I told Erica I was getting one of those and now thanks to the Timm's we have one and she loves it.She still need to grow some to fit it but she loves it never the less.
We all sit around and are shootin the shit and Erica says "she seem hot" O great, check the temp and its 101.1 not bad, get the motrin and give her some. 10 min later check her temp again and it 102.2, yep time to go, one more time on the way to the car and its 103.5 and to the hospital we go.
Hit the front doors of Elm Brook and Erica says I think somethings wrong and she was right, what was wrong was everything Tess had to eat for the past two hours including the meds we gave her were now all over Erica and her coat( that was sick even for me I can't believe Erica didn't heave). Into the hospital and two hours later were on our way home with a new scrip for a different med. Well at least we were home for midnight.
The next morning Tess is up at the crack of dawn and she seems better and her temp is down, ThankGOD , the phone rings and the folks call to see if we want to go for breakfast and were all in for that. So before we leave we try to give Tess her meds and she wants no part of it, she spits it right out of her mouth, great $110.00 for this stuff and she can't even get it down. we figure we'll mix it with some oatmeal and she'll never know, well she knew and wanted no part of it.
So we sit at breakfast and you can just she her color changing and you can feel the heat coming off of her. Check her temp.... 104.8 and we are off the the hospital again, this time we were only 1.8 miles away, get her in and her temp is now 105.0 and they get some different meds in her and we are now on antibiotic number three and $250.00 later in meds she is finally on the mend.
So what did we learn from this, if she looks sick she is, if she is sick stay home or even if she looks sick and thanks God for HSA's and good medical insurance.
Four days later and she finally slept though the night last night ans Erica and I finally got some sleep too. I do have to say I got more sleep then she did as she spent most of the nights up with Tess cause she was off all week. Thanks Erica.
