Diving struggle
Thursday, October 20, 2011      3 comments

Well, we dove today, but only 1 dive out of the 4 we wanted to do. The visibility was lousy (maybe 10 feet), so being the last person down, within a few minutes I lost my buddy and the group. I had taken a heading at the rope when I got down, ... Read more

No diving today either. It is windy, raining hard, thundering, and lightning since at least 5am. Stuff is just going with the flow in the water, so there is enough water to cause a current going out. Our screened-in patio is half wet, but I m... Read more
No diving today

I do not know what to call today. We did not go diving this morning because the wind was blowing and it was raining pretty good. The weather at first showed rain and wind through Thursday, our last possible day to dive. Then just a little bit... Read more

Success is a different measurement for each of us, and nobody can force that on us. Here are some of my successes. I have done my best in helping my stepson be a responsible, individual adult. He still thinks that he knows it all, but some d... Read more

I had a decent weekend, one day off. I worked on Saturday, which was not too bad. This morning I got up and went to the gym first thing. Since it is my last day off before we leave next Saturday. I had my scuba gear packed, so I was working ... Read more
On the mend

Things seem to be looking up with my shoulder/arm. The pain started subsiding after I started taking a couple of the muscle relaxants per day. They do not cause me drowsiness overall, so I have been able to use it while working. Today I added... Read more
Over the hump day

It is over-the-hump day, and it was an okay day. I took a muscle relaxant shortly after I got to work, as well as keeping the ibuprofen up regularly, because I wanted to keep the pain under control. My pain level was about 8 out of 10, only be... Read more
Pain 2

This week has been a rough week. The fibromyalgia pain has been increasing in relation to that "pop" I heard. There still is not a pinpoint spot, so I do not think a tear is a concern. I requested some more muscle relaxant of my doctor after ... Read more

My gym life is improving again. I went this weekend both days. The only glitch was that on Saturday morning when I was stretching before getting out of bed, I was reaching upwards when there was a solid "pop" in my left shoulder: the one that ... Read more
Fresh resolve

The weekend was a rather dull one around here. I was bad for the month of August, not getting to the gym but maybe once a week, and eating worse than I should. So my resolve with this past weekend was to get to the gym on schedule again, and s... Read more

Well I have not written here in a long time. Things have been a little crazy, and my time has been limited. First thing is that my stepson has been moved out of our house for about 5 weeks now. The place he moved into is not by any m... Read more

Well, it has been an interesting past week. Ever since Monday it has felt like it should be Friday. The first thing is that I met with the fitness trainer last Friday, and felt very good when done with our session. Good enough that I bo... Read more
Fitness trainer visit and things learned...
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      0 comments

Today was my visit with a different fitness trainer, a female this time. I spoke to the owner last week about my previous experience because I wanted him to know that the client is not always listened to, to a detriment. He offered to set me u... Read more
