6wk routine bloodwork. #aslife
Had to show the amazing progress of @aredhead82 ! But the pictures only show a small part of her change... her relationship with food and her awareness of what her body needs, living a healthy ‘balanced’ life. So cool to watch the transformation. She’s setting such an example for her kids, family and for all those in our group too! it’s pretty amazing. Can’t wait to see where you are Allison after the next 80days!
Day 13 of my new workout regime. Trying new things... bands. I started this doing the moves without any bands. Partly because my movement was still limited and because I don’t like bands, and I’m a guy (bands are for girls right?) Lol. Then I started using a pair we had and just gritted through the hair pulling on my legs 😬. I quickly went up to the red and sometimes doubled up. Wow those muscles burn! But I needed an upgrade. Check out the new bands! Thicker and higher quality. I’m excited to start using these. And guys... bands are no joke! My muscles burn using them! The really isolate and allow the muscle to work in both directions.
I’m just gonna lay here for a while. #cardiocore #drowninginsweat 😓
Oh man, I may just have to get this new flavor...for Joie...wink wink.
If any of you know my weight loss / get off my blood pressure meds story ...you’d know that Shakeology was a huge part of that. It helped me lose 60lbs and I was able to stop taking all my blood pressure/cholesterol meds. I drank it every day. Now due my Ankylosing Spondylitis, I am on biologics (immune suppressants) and because Shakeology is packed with immune boosters...I can’t drink it anymore 😢 😭. I miss it.
So since this whole swimming for my health is a thing now, I figured I shouldnt be the guy that looks like he’s flopping around drowning. My first adult swim class was tonight. Funny thing... the instructor pulled me out after class to test me and says I have to move up a class. Guess I’m not so floppy lol 😂 at Redmond Swimming Pool
Impromptu date with @watchjojogo last night ... we went to get ice cream sammies at Hello Robin but passed by this new place RocketTaco and had to try it. Wow impressed.
So true. Due to my AS , it’s required by my doc (to prevent the degradation of my condition and help reduce inflammation and pain) to get regular PT and massage. Originally my insurance said those were covered separately. Now they are saying they are combined and I’ve maxed out my visits. This isn’t an injury that will just get better over time...it’s a disease...so now I have to pay out of pocket for my treatment. So lame. I’ve put in a request/appeal to get more visits based on my diagnosis... but I doubt I’ll get it. Cigna sucks.
Making sweat angels today. 🤢 seriously felt like the longest workout of my life lol! Probably because I kept pushing pause to catch my breath. It’s gonna be a long road to get my body back to where it was while still fighting the Pain. Fun times #80dayobsession #totalbodycore
Early Morning workout with my babe. (@watchjojogo would kill me if I showed her face) You don’t know how good it feels to be working out in my garage gym again. To feel my muscles and just sweat it out. Even more awesome to workout with my swolemate. 💪Don’t rush to think I’m cured...Yesterday’s workout I almost felt normal, but today I woke up with my familiar pains...it was too good to be true. It’s ok, I take advantage of my good days. I have to take this disease day by day. —— for those curious what I’m doing... we’re doing 80day obsession. I’ve been impressed how great it is for me with its slow controlled movements and core strength emphasis without all the crazy explosive complex intense stuff that usually happens in these programs. And I can modify and still be dripping with sweat and my muscles are sore the next day. So 👍🏻 so far and I think my PT would approve. I’m also going to try and swim 🏊♂️ as much as I can each week.
So proud of her! We heard them call the 3rd place name and @watchjojogo thought for sure she’d missed the podium...but nope she placed 2nd! She was so surprised! Way to go jo! at Bonney Lake, Washington
Crushing the finish!
Last stretch! 💪 🏃♀️ at Bonney Lake, Washington
Time for the run! #alwayssmiling at Bonney Lake, Washington
