    Had to feed wifee after PT. Damn chicken nuggets! Shoulda got my standard artisan chicken even tho it's way over priced. Best choice in a bad situation. Lol

    Also thanx Obs, Cowboy n y'all for the help n support. Means the world.

    A funny: I reached toward wifee to take her plate, still in my gym gear. She exclaims, "Damn baby! Your arms!" I thought I was bleeding or something lol!!! She replies, "no, they're huge! We need a pic of that"

    1) camera phones suck on pasty white flesh
    2) you're never as big as your pump!

    We can keep tabs on each other to keep us motivated. I too use MyFitnessPal to track it works really good for whole food tracking, but for junk food the calories and macros are all over the place. I always get a kick when it lists calories that are clearly way way off base.

    Well, let me tell ya a tale. I don't do pain well. Checked out on my 1st tattoo... And my 2nd. But I wanted wifee to do it so I challenged her: I'll do it if you do it with me! She agreed! I went 1st. Hurt like a mother but I didn't check out. Hers likewise. Horrible pain. No numbing at all.
    Side note. Is it a bad thing that I enjoyed watching some 20yo dude fondle my wife's... Ummm...? :-o

    So a year later, mine still hurt intermittently and do nothing for me, but hers?.... OMG! Direct nerve connection to her... Well ya know. Nether regions. She says hurt like hell and she would never do it again but she is soooo happy she did it! She has boxes of jewelery. Likes to show them off at those parties :-)

    One way to know for sure. Next time gym is empty take your droors off and put them on your head and lift. Wait a few days later and next time in the gym strike up conversation with gym employee, if they can’t look at you straight there’s your answer.

    Your heart ever just pause? A while ago, mine would beat normally and then just stop for about 2-3 beats length of time and just pick right back up as if it never skipped a beat... doctor says it was the weirdest thing heís ever heard... usually he said the heart will beat rapidly after it pauses to get all the excess blood out of there and catch back up...

    He said itís typically a hormone imbalance and went right into testing my thyroid.. he was spot on. I didnít tell him what I was up too but as soon as he said it I knew what he was going to find lol...

    We dialed it down to elevated t3, low t4 thyroid imbalance... (Iíll never supplement t3 again in my life) but after a week and getting that back to normal, never happened again.. but man, scared the shit out of me lol...

    If I'm heavy physical therapy activity, and if wifee let's me, I'll sleep 9 or 10. Less if I wear my cpap. Sleep is messed up lately tho with wifee knee surgery/recovery. She is up all hours cuz she hurts... Therefore I'm up all hours too lol!

    If I get 7-8 I'll need a nap or way more coffee than my body is happy with.

    Keep in mind: I'm an old, busted, retired guy who is trying to force his body to do stuff it is not happy with. And I like my sleep!
