Arm and Shoulder Check....

I think I've just about evened up my Upper Body with my Butt and Thighs....

Calves are a Lost Cause but I blasted them with 10
Sets to Failure anyway. 

Good Out of Town Saturday Night Workout. 

Think I'll go get a Shower and see if I can kill a Marg or 2. 

Just because you're Out of Town don't mean...


You can't Work Out!!!

Did a $10 Walk-in at Gold's Gym in Beaumont. 


Doing my Favorite but not Don's Favorite...exercise - 

SQUATS!!!

Who you calling Jack Ass?

Lunch with my Dad at the China Garden


My favorite meal so far in Beaumont!!!


Gathering my meat and veggies for the Mongolian grill. 



Having sushi and a Tsing Tao while they're cooking my selection. 


Next to the German Hoegaarden, Tsing Tao is my fave!!!


Now that's a nice meal!!!

Breakfast is...


Jalapeño Sausage and Inglehoffer Sweet - Hot Mustard on my sister's Homemade Oatmeal Multigrain bread with raw veggies.

Jalapeño Sausage, 2 Eggs, onions, bell pepper, garlic, zucchini, basil and shaved parmesan. 

Great after workout meal. 

Pairing it with an ice cold Podington's Pub Ale. 

Wills on Wheels doing Yoga.... You gotta be kiddin' me!!!


First time ever for Yoga!

I did it and I loved it!!!!

It was incredibly hard and I was sweating my ass off but I need this different type of work. 

I could feel it down deep. 

You gotta try something new. 

I did and I'm glad I did. 

I'll be back. 

Family Fitness in Lake Jackson Tx


My sister, Diana, and I had a discussion this morning about how important it is to have a support mechanism for your personal fitness plan. 

I am lucky to be a member of a top notch fitness center - Family Fitness. 

www.family-fitness.com


The group classes are what does it for me. I work out harder and more consistently in this sort of venue. 

And you can see the variety of classes and schedule FF offers. 

This is what you should look for when choosing a fitness facility. 

Taking advantage of a facility like this is the best medical insurance you can buy. 

Which addresses the Monday morning post. 

Oh Lord.  Here we go again!!!

Just call me Kid - scratch that - Old Man Rock!!!


It's funny.... I have had several attempts by people around me to gravitate toward a gentler kinder kind of music appreciation....

The latest attempt was Country.....

And while I like and enjoy Darius Rucker, Matt Nathanson, Lady Antebellum, Lee Brice, Blake Shelton, Sugarland et al....

My heart and soul is Rock...

Started with ACDC and went downhill from there...

So the next time you ask
me what My name is....

You'll Know!!!


No - that's not an album cover. That's my breakfast....

Homemade bread from the BEST BAKER IN THE WORLD - my sister Vicki, spicy hummus and a fresh
Tomato. 


And no - that's not an album cover....

Men's Health was shooting me for their cover    


Ego is not a problem with me....

What is your Animal inside?


You know we all have an Animal or Beast inside us that we fight to keep inside because we know when we let it out it hurts us and those around us. 

For me it's Anger.  

Everybody that knows me knows that. 

What they don't know is how much I fight the beast every day. 

And please don't text or comment and say the words "counseling" or "drugs". 

Been there... Done that....

All it did was make the shrinks rich and me fat. 

So.... That's me laying it on the line. 

Now it's your turn....

What is that little Peace (yes I meant to say Peace not Piece) of Hell living in you?

Is it physical pain?

Is it regret, remorse, guilt, laziness, self-esteem...

Name your Beast....

Then Tame your Beast!!!!

I keep my Anger in check by a healthy lifestyle - stress control, diet, exercise, walking away from negative situations. 

Have I been successful?

In the past.... No. 

But today.... So far.  

And that's all you can do is....

Battle the Beast one day at a time. 

Now!

I can feel the animal inside
My resolve is weakening
Pounding at the doors of my mind
It's nearly overpowering
I cannot begin to describe
The hunger that I feel again
Run if you intend to survive
For the beast is coming to life
Taking form in the glimmer in this tainted moonlight
Death approaches on this night

For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

I can hear it calling again
The primal need is filling me
Changes are about to begin
And now my blood is boiling
I can see the fear in your eyes
But you can't bring yourself to scream
Time to shed the mortal disguise
For the beast is coming to life
Taking form in the glimmer of this tainted moonlight
Death approaches on this night

For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

We begin the hunt and I
Feel the power course, as the creatures take flight
For the kill is close and I will be satisfied
For the smell of fear tonight
Wakes an ancient lust that will not be denied
You're mine

For the animal's soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

For the animal's soul is mine
And the world around will never hear your cries
An unholy crime
And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

Think it's about time I....


Ramble On!!!


Leaves are falling all around, 
It's time I was on my way. 
Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay. 
But now it's time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way. 
For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way. 
Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I've got one thing I got to do... 

[Chorus]
Ramble On, And now's the time, the time is now, to sing my song. 
I'm goin' 'round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way. 
I've been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On, 
Gotta find the queen of all my dreams. 

Got no time for spreadin' roots, The time has come to be gone. 
And to' our health we drank a thousand times, it's time to Ramble On. 

[Chorus]

Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear. 
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air. 
T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. 
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah. 

[Chorus]

Gonna ramble on, sing my song. Gotta keep-a-searchin' for my baby... 
Gonna work my way, round the world. I can't stop this feelin' in my heart 
Gotta keep searchin' for my baby. I can't find my bluebird!


What more is there to life than...


Music....


And a Top Shelf Frozen Margarita, Chips, Salsa and Salt???


Aaaah....

That's the way to end a Great Day of Music...

Discovery!!!!

Give your body what it's hungry for!!!


I had a big breakfast, a killer workout, a doctor's appointment and some rat killing to do. 

I get back home and I ask
the old body - what you want?

And Body says to me - 

How bout a fresh fruit salad with mango, peach, blueberries and some shaved Parmesan cheese?


So Body says to me.... I like I like... And I want some more. 

So I shoved ole body a 2nd bowl of mango, pear, blueberries, golden raisins, park cheese and mixed nuts. 

Body says I did good!!!
