Updates: My left arm continues to heal. The staff infection is totally gone, however, I still have a bump and it hurts to put weight on it. I’m seriously hoping that the bump is not permanent. I guess only time will tell.
My right arm continues to have tennis elbow pain. Last spring it was at a solid 10 on the pain scale. This latest bought has it at a consistent 4. It persists despite the ice, anti-inflammatory meds, and strengthening exercises.
I’ve restarted another P90x3 cycle. I’m on block 2, week 5 of the mass schedule. Until I’m healed I’ve modified any plank moves that put me on the elbow. i.e. replaced these with these. Overall the mass schedule has less plank-type moves which will also help the elbows.
So far, so good.
Regarding continued weight loss I’m stuck at 187 pounds. I really do want to get down to the 180 – 185 range and hold. However, I’ve added a few diet cheat days which includes the occasional adult beverage. The added protein drink and creatin also add a few calories. Guess I’ll have to continue to adjust the diet and see what comes of it.
Steven Seagal: Potatoe Fist suggested that blogging about Seagal-san would increase my blog traffic. I suspect that it will have the opposite effect. However, here goes nothing!
The Bloated One recently made some high profile news sources. Here’s a blurb from ABC:
Serbian officials offered the veteran American actor and producer a job Tuesday training Serbian special police forces in Aikido, a Japanese martial art that Seagal is famous for in his blockbuster movies.
Apparently Seagal-san is hobnobbing with various Serbian officials including the pro-Russian President, Tomislav Nikolic.
Who wouldn’t want the guy who sang “Punani” to train your police force?
