19 May was my 47th birthday. On the 20th I was gifted with a son. This is my 3rd child (2 girls and a boy now).

On the 23rd I thought I should do a strength challenge as part of my workout. So after I did my regular rack-pulls I kept going and ended up pulling 545lbs for a single. Not to bad.

The current workout is very intense. At the end of the week I will decide whether or not to try for another week or if it is time to change to something with less…

Why Men Need Talk About Their Problems

In life, the traditional dynamics of the household involved the man going out to work and earning the money while the woman would stay at home, tend to the house and look after the kids. Nowadays, that's different. Both men and woman have careers and sometimes don't have time to raise family or act out their roles which society once demanded. Sometimes, the role is now reversed and the man stays at home while the woman goes out and becomes the main…

Traction: Tue, 3 May 2016

Follow-up on my first post, Traction

Woke up at 7 AM as planned (alarm clock form hell). Finished my morning routine, went to yoga class but lagged behind because of my wrist. Need to get it checked, don't think it should still be bothering me a week from the fall. Ran my errands, took a nap to try to forestall a developing migraine (failed). Had my online interview with the program…

Osteoporosis: a disease that knows no gender

Although women are more likely candidates for osteoporosis than men, do not think that you are safe from risk just because you have one Y-chromosome more than an average damsel. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, about 20-25% of all hip fractures occur in men, and the number is expected to increase by 310% by 2050.

BEWARE the Spee-I-derrrr

So it's the second time I have noticed something faint out of the corner (top) of my eye. I am sitting at my desk at work. There is slight movement above my head...

YEP - It's a SPIDER sliding up then down on a web strand...what a creepy word - S-P-I-D-E-R. Just saying it in my head gives me weird chills. It must a be primal fear that goes way back into our ancestors. Monsters, sharks, clowns, the Spee-I-der. All very scary. Yet so fascinating at the same time....…
