    Long time no see!

    Things have been really hectic...we moved, obviously; then within 3 months hubby's femur bone snapped (it just gave way), so he's now held together with even more metal. The had to send for special parts to Liverpool, whilst he waited in Aberdeen hospital. It was a year long road to base recovery for him. Then, in 2016, my sister died; and, today, we've just come from hubby's sister's funeral...yep, it's all go, in more ways than one.

    I managed to fall over through pure exhaustion, the year after hubby's leg snapped, and broke a bone in my hand, not to mention lots of other injuries. Ha! When it goes wrong, it does it big time.

    I decided to try and put a bit of time aside today, whilst I was here (the library) sorting some health reading up; the doc wants me to cut gluten from the diet, yay for me

    Anyway, I will try and get on a bit more as time permits. Hope everybody's training is still going strong.

    hey KD, yep, here's hoping to a better year all-round; seems we'll be having new neighbours in a couple of weeks now as well, so fingers crossed there!



    I'll try and get on from time to time, we're off to the hospital in a few minutes.

    My right shoulder is acting up at the moment, so in addition to all the tasks around the house, which need doing, I'm going to be doing some rehab style exercises. Fortunately, I'm fine when it's just basic lifting but maybe when I fell (in 2016, Jan 1st) I did some damage there as well as to my left hand; slowly but surely should do the job...besides, I still have that 1-finger Deadlift to shatter...40kg is my target, most likely next year though.

    Keep up the great work guys and hopefully I'll get to log in again in a few weeks time.

    All the best to anyone who is currently training for a comp!

    Met the new neighbour this morning, seems okay which is always a good thing. Was at the doc's Friday, not such a great day but thankfully over with; now all I need to do is await results...in the meantime, I'm getting down to some exercise as I want to crush that 80.3lbs 1-Finger record I currently have.

    Thanks Brute


    Tests came back negative, not really surprised there, tbh, but I reckon the meds had done their work by that point in time, although I couldn't speak for an entire month...complete lack of voice, due to the meds, I think.

    I managed to get sunburned whilst spending copious amounts of time in the garden pulling a shrub that's been growing for the past 40 years; even the loppers were struggling but I got there in the end.

    I was advised to cut out the gluten as the medical profession assumed I was intolerant to it, whether I am or not is another matter but I have noticed even though we're deep into the hayfever season, I haven't needed to start any meds for it yet and I've been taking them since I was 16 y/o...makes me wonder, all that medication may have been unnecessary; however, I'm not banking on things yet, give it to the end of this season and then another on top of it, then I'll be inclined to say that's the case, most likely.


    Very little structured workout as yet but the gardening has taken it's place this past 2 weeks

    Wow, long time since I posted here...still looking to hit that 40kg mark and aiming to get a picture, for posterity

    Hubby was at the hospital today, so it's been a long day all told; x-rays, consultation, and new appointments in the offing.

    So, the hayfever thingummyjig, no meds needed at all last year, and already into the first month of the season this year; fingers crossed.


    Hope everybody else is doing well in their training/workouts.

    I'm back...it's been too long

    Time to up that 1-Finger Deadlift...got to get back into the lift first though; the last thing I need is an injury. Prior to that, some scything cardio should help, as long as the rains stay away for a couple of days because I'd really like to get that done tomorrow, if possible.

    As expected, we have lousy weather today...well, when I say lousy, I mean the scything can wait for a day that looks like it has some sun to it.

    Due to circumstances, there's a degree of over-tiredness as well and no way do I want to lose a finger I managed to nick myself a few years ago, when I was a complete newbie to the scythe...gonna try not doing that again, it was just a nick but it made me respect the 3ft plus blade; just as stubbing a toe on a weight plate can certainly reinforce the respect we give to metal weights

    Yay, got up with a bad head (not the yay part ) but still got some of the scything done despite the weather looking a tad iffy. Around 2/3 of the grass tackled, on the initial run through; if the weather is good tomorrow, I can get the rest done and then just skim the top with my nice blade which I prefer to this cheap tool that isn't even supposed to cut grass; a hammer, however, will do wonders to a crap blade that isn't sharp enough for grass. Later, tonight, I get to sharpen it again; I noticed it was dulling due to the extent of burdock and stuff that was around...but the "Grey Reaper" sorted that out in a jiffy.

    That was my workout for the day!

    A hot day again today and as much as my body was reeling from yesterday's intense scything session, I decided to hit the back area of the "lawn"/grass. I could feel every muscle in my body before I began, so you can only imagine how it feels now If it stays fine, in a few hours I can rake up the cuttings.

    And, if I can even move tomorrow and the weather holds out, then hopefully I can get it fully sorted...it's been one of those tasks whereby the grass was 2-3 ft tall in areas and sparser in others; overnight we had a downpour, so that didn't help much...

    ...and I found a toad hopping about avoiding the blade for the last few years I saw a baby hedgehog which has since grown considerably (I saw it last year), though I've not seen it this year, so far.

    I sent you a PM, could you just take a quick look in case there is an issue, thanks.

    But yes, yard work is hell; the past few days I could barely turn over in bed or get out of the thing without groaning and having several attempts to get upright. I must, however, get my blade sharpened a bit as well; the problem is I'm working with a tangled mass as well which is hard-going.

    So, today I spent 6 hours scything and raking the lawn which was fun; had I known what I worked out yesterday evening, that would have been the only 6 hours to get rid of the rough tangled, overgrown mess. Then again, even though there was so much discomfort from yesterday's session, at least I learned something, so it wasn't a lost cause either.

    Now, there's very little left to do, just a general sweep over it; on the downside, I'm sunburned and can feel it increasing as I type; thankfully, I was wearing a light jacket, so it's only the face, neck and weird as it sounds across the top of my knuckles and hands.

    I guess it was really hot here today, even though we were supposed to be expecting thunder.

    I had to log in through the "back door" again; not really sure why this is happening (not even sure this will post ); busy with basic workouts, at the moment. Maybe try again in a few weeks to see if things have righted themselves here.
