    Heat Miser is Transcending Agedness With USPLabs/PES and NutraPlanet


    I am embarking on a new cycle of training after returning from a 10 day rest and deconditioning period. Well, I did not rest much due to travel and activities but I have deconditioned to the point that it is calling me to hit it again. I have renewed motivation and enthusiasm. As well my last day of training was on my 43rd birthday.

    I would like to thank my friend Mullet for the personalized and advanced USPLabs product application protocol. I have every confidence in USPlabs and even more confidence in Mullet.

    As a result of my own personal dedication and motivation, USPlabs products and Mullets previous protocols and counsel I am already in the greatest shape of my life. I am at the leanest and heaviest I have ever been. This was achieved with sub part intensity to due my injury which has reached about 85% recovered in strength and size.

    My goals are to continue to increase LBM while maintaining or decreasing body fat.

    The following is an outline of my pre and post workout supplementation.

    Upon Rising:
    USPLabs Recreate™ - 2 caps
    USPLabs PowerFULL™ - 3 caps
    USPLabs AnabolicPump™ - 1 cap
    SupperCissus Rx™ - 1g cap

    +30 mins later intra w/o drink:
    Xtend BCAA - 12.5g
    NutraPlanet Leucine - 7g
    NutraPlanet Beta Alanine - 3g
    NutraPlanet Creatine Mono - 2.5g

    During which time I will begin low intensity treadmill warm-up for 10-15mins followed by site specific stretching and warm-up for approximately 10 mins and I will dilute throughout workout and consume last bit upon the last set.

    Last Resistance Training Set:
    P-Slin™ - 1 cap
    Begin 15 to 20 mins static moderate intensity treadmill

    Immediate Post Work Out Shake:
    Xtend BCAA - 12.5g
    NutraPlanet Leucine - 7g
    NutraPlanet Beta Alanine - 3g
    NutraPlanet Creatine Mono - 2.5g
    NutraPlanet KWICK KARB™ (Waxy Maize Starch) - 25 to 30g*

    Second Post Workout Shake/Meal:
    Ground oats - 25g*
    Whey Protein Isolate - 50g

    Throughout the day:
    USPLabs PowerFULL™ - 2 caps
    USPLabs AnabolicPump™ - 1 to 2 caps as needed
    USPLabs Recreate™ - 1 to 2 caps as tolerated
    SuperCissus Rx™ - 1g cap x 2

    Pre bed:
    NutraPlanets - USPLabs Certified:
    1-carboxy-2-amino-3-pyrobenzol(3,4 diol) - 1g cap x 2

    *Waxy Maize Starch and ground oats serving sizes will be evaluated and adjusted up or down as desired, tolerated or goals are attained.

    As tolerance to my USPLabs pre workout stack is assessed I may add in 1 to 2 caps of NutarPlanet TEA-GCG™ as well as the possibility 5-10mg of NutraPlanet Yohimbine bulk powder.

    There are also your standard antioxidants such as NutraPlanets NAC and ALA as well as Multi-V, Vitamin E and Vitamin C, Policosanol, Niacin, Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna Bark), Fish Oil, Sesamin...and maybe a staple or two I am forgetting at this time.

    Training routine and splits will be posted as each day is completed as time and motivation allows.

    Stats as well as the possibility of pictures may be added at a later date.

    Depending upon my progress and achievements there may also be a TD and/or oral pulse to maybe or maybe not be mentioned at a later date.

    I am not sure of my frequency of updates. I have still many many remodel activities around the house. I have also begun to implement an Apprentice/Mentor program at my place of employment that has been quite fulfilling to me so my usual frequency of posting during my idle work time make decline considerable more. My function as Administrator and NutraPlanet rep will be maintained as well as is expected but my logging and social time may be diminishing.

    Feel free to inquire or contribute as the next several days are my off days from work and I am more likely to be able to engage in dialog more freely.

    This is ultimately a working, living breathing journal that may contain contributions from me that are irrelevant and or abstract in nature.

    That is really my profile - irrelevant and abstract.

    Thanks to NutraPlanet for carrying these fine products. Thanks to USPLabs for delivering these innovative and tremendously effective product to our retailer. Thanks to Mullet for the personalized protocol and investment of time, knowledge and friendship.

    Did you forget to post your carbs with your intra-workout drink?

    If not, I'm confused as to why AP is used prior to...

    Very good question. Thanks for asking Jordan. I likewise was curious if not skeptical
    To tell you the truth, fasted states in conjunction with products which induce, and following, utilize lipolysis are absolutely fantastic. If you are lifting immediately after waking, may I suggest forgoing the Pre-WO shake? Glucose provides only 1/3 of the energy for anaerobic cellular reactions, and the combination of both PowerFULL and ReCreate modulating lipolysis pathways produces very strong workouts.
    Whether we choose to utilize them or not, the process of lipolysis liberates stored fatty acids into our blood stream in the form of triglycerides - by engaging in anaerobic exercise, we use these newly liberated FFAs for cellular exertion (as I said, fatty acid oxidation comprises about 2/3 energy use in an anaerobic movement). This protocol merely utilizes energy which would have been wasted in a normal protocol, while ensuring that proper Post-WO nutrition is undertaken.
    I am hopeful that Mullet will further contribute and or elaborate.

    To each their own I suppose... it's interesting.


    While I understand in theory, I would assume it would depend in part to what your last meal of tha day looks like.

    O/T observation: I have struggled with insomnia. Not wide awake can't fall asleep insomnia, but rather can't stay asleep insomnia. AmbienCR has failed to work anymore even at 2x dose. I was prescribed 30mg Tamazapam. It did work well initially but soon two were required and at that point I felt I was enjoying the buzz more than the sleep induction...not a good idea for me.

    I use it infrequently, most specifically when I am certain I have 8 hours before I need to drive and or go to work. Recently I have stacked it with 2g of PureDopa™ (1-carboxy-2-amino-3-pyrobenzol(3,4 diol). Now a single 30mg dose of Tamazapam w/2g PureDopa™ has me sleeping very soundly and deeply with only one or two wakes for urination.

    I used to use up to 3 or 4 grams of PureDopa™ and it seemed to loose it effectiveness for sustained sleep. I even practice going lower dosed with slightly better but still less effective sleep.

    PureDopa™/Tamazapam stack works well.

    Additionally I appreciate the color and naming on the USPLabs capsules. I am able to drop them all in one bottle and bring them to work without the worry of figuring which is which. Good job!

    Doesn't everything?

    EDIT: I am a skeptic and optimist and a realist in matter of supplementation experimentation. Sometimes it does not need to make sense, but in this case it does based on the science. If this is ineffective I will be the first to proclaim it. I have used and empty stomach training protocol with only PowerFULL and had very very good success in both performance and body recomposition. I imagine it is based upon the application of what this concept and/or theorization is based on as well. Only this time it is stoked to the gills with goodies.

    Thanks Jordan.

    I edited my opening post. I mistakenly stated my post workout nutrition. There is an immediate and a secondary.

    Reaper - Give me a week or so. I just got back from some reckless eating and slouching during my time off. I am really self conscious...really...and am not nearly 'ripped' but do well for my phenotype and age. You'll be the first one I call when I post them.

    Here I was hoping I'd be tha first... or perhaps I should be calling you for pre-authorization, lol.

    Can't be any worse than me, I've exposed my fair share on this board and was told elsewhere to purchase stock in Gillette.

    Seriously though, I've been wanting to find time to contact you very soon. I need some new perspective on life and career paths.

    Well my head is more bald, my body hair has increased, my beard grows in gray and I ain't no better looking. Actually I am just wanting to get rid of some water weight that I picked up over the week at my sons graduation. Plus some Arizona sunshine will tan me real quickly which never hurts a physiques appearance

    You can always call, but that doesn't mean I have the time to talk. I should be doing something better with my time right this minute.

    Here are just a few things I picked up today without looking:

    "Fitness comes from engaging the body. Wellness comes from soothing it"
    "We make a living from what we get, but we make a life from what we give"

    Best one though is a song title:

    "I hate every bone in your body except mine"

    All day staring at the ceiling
    Making friends with shadows on my wall
    All night hearing voices telling me
    That I should get some sleep
    Because tomorrow might be good for something

    Hold on
    Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
    And I don't know why

    [chorus]

    But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know right now you cant tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
    I know right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be...me

    Im talking to myself in public
    Dodging glances on the train
    And I know, I know they've all been talking about me
    I can hear them whisper
    And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
    Out of all the hours thinking
    Somehow Ive lost my mind

    [chorus]

    But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know right now you cant tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy, I''m just a little impaired
    I know right now you don't care
    But soon enough your'e gonna think of me
    And how I used to be

    Ive been talking in my sleep
    Pretty soon they'll come to get me
    Yeah, they're taking me away

    [chorus]

    But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know right now you cant tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
    I know right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be

    Yeah, how I used to be
    How I used to be
    Well, I'm just a little unwell
    How I used to be
    How I used to be
    I'm just a little unwell

    Yesterday - Monday, June 16th


    Chest/Triceps

    10 mins treadmill warm-up and stretching

    Chest:

    Light Incline Smith Bench Press*
    185 x 8, 8, 8

    Decline Smith Bench Press*
    185 x 8, 8, 8

    Flat DB Flys (left arm only)
    50 x 8, 8, 8, Drop - 35 x 8

    Cable Press (left arm only)
    40 x 14, 10, 8, Drop - 30 x 10, Drop - 20 x 15

    Triceps:

    Tricep Cable Press (left arm only - assisted)
    130 x 8, 8, 8

    Tricep Deck Extension (left arm only - assisted)
    100 x 8, 8, 8, Drop - 60 x 8, Drop - 30 x 10

    Treadmill:

    20mins medium slightly increasing intensity and a cool down of an additional 2 mins.

    Observations:

    Stamina, focus and intensity were quite good. I made myself stop the treadmill at 20 mins because I had to pee...I diluted and drank down the intra drink for the duration of my workout

    * I suspect that the weight of the bar exceeds the traditional 45lb but working weight is based upon 45lbs. So it could be heavier. I am not quite nearly as strong as I once was do to injury.

    This is a new split. It used to be Chest/Back and then an Arms/Legs day. I am mixing it up right now. It may go back or it may not.

    Back and Bicep


    10 mins treadmill warm-up and stretching

    Back:

    Wide Grip Pull-Ups
    BW x 10, 8, 6

    Lat Pull Downs (left arm)
    100 x 10, 110 x 8, 8

    Dumbbell Rows (left arm)
    110 x 10, 115 x 9, 8

    Seated Cable Rows
    120 x 8, 8, 8

    Bicep:

    Reverse Grip E-Z Curls (left arm)*
    60 x 8, 8, 8

    Preacher Curl Machine (left arm)
    25 x lost count I do some insane negatives

    Treadmill:
    20 mins low/med intensity treadmill cardio

    Observations:

    Back work intensity was quite good, even above par. I used to train Chest and Back together in a sequence of sets of one chest exercise and when completed I would follow with sets of a back exercise. Then repeat the sequence. IOW - 3 sets of chest, then three sets of back, then three sets of chest, and the threes sets of back...etc.

    I did experience serious reduction in bicep working load due to training them following my back work. Inversely my back work was even greater because I did not do it in sequence with my chest work as outlined above. This by no means hindered my ability to create a hypertrophy or at least kick the sh1t out of my bicep. It is just and adjustment that i need to make to my working set work loads. I am not in it for weight. This is purely hypertrophy.

    * This is done with an emphasis on my left arm. I lightly assist with my right fist to keep the bar balanced. I alternate this exercise with hammers in previous splits.

    Additionally this applies to my smith barbell work on my chest mentioned above. I do my best to not allow my right, stronger, uninjured dominant side to overpower my left side. So as a result the working load is reduced or slighter that I am accustomed to prior to injury.

    If you can appreciate what I am trying to do with unilateral primary work and see how i am also incorporating some bilateral work such as pull ups and barbell press you will understand how my carb intake needs to be carefully monitored in order to not overfeed myself.

    This injury has forced me to be much much more intelligent with my training and is indeed a blessing in disguise.

    You know BFiddy, I find it real interesting to see how "injuries" force us to change. I am enjoying reading how you are getting around yours. I am almost 2 months post ACL repair, and am able to start moving 45 pound plates, and moving heavier DBs. It was good for me to have to get my fix from machines for a little while. I didnt love it, and couldnt go as heavy as I liked, but I was able to keep a degree of sanity and shape.

    The great thing to come of all this was a major change to my training, I had to use my lifting for both aerobic and non-aerobic trainging for a good while, and my strength endurence is about the best its ever been, due to the high reps and short recovery periods I have had to use the last couple of months.

    Keep up the good work man!

    Anabolic Pump is often conceptualized as merely a supplement of glucose homeostasis. While that's true in part, its true identity is one of energy metabolism as a whole; specifically, modulating energy expenditure and transfer in both fat and muscle cells, via the modulation of energy storage and production mechanisms.

    During a long bout of exercise (i.e., an hour long resistance training session) your body's energy homeostasis mechanisms need to take on a more oxidative (the B-oxidation of fatty acids) as opposed to glycolytic (GLUT4 translocation and glucose storage) role. This is due in part to the inability of the body to produce the fuel (glucose) for anabolic processes at the rates needed for anaerobic exercise. In response, your body has in place several mechanisms which prevent the accumulation and synthesis of triglycerides and lipids, and release them into the bloodstream to be oxidized.

    These lipolytic processes actually contribute to the majority of energy transaction in a bout of anaerobic exercise - the oxidation of fatty acids and plasma triglycerides, primarily, provide the energy for resistance training.

    The reason I mention all this is Anabolic Pump's fascinating ability to regulate one of the vanguards of oxidative and glycolytic energy consumption - AMPk. AMPk works as an essential gate-keeper of energy production, reacting to extracellular fluctuations of various downstream energy messengers (AMP:ATP ratio included). Its activation is responsible for various roles, including all of the above mentioned.

    Using such a product in conjunction with fasted cardio simply utilizes energy which would have been stored anyway. The mere presence of AMPk ensures that the liberated fatty acids and triglycerides will be oxidized as it plays a primary role in not only lipolysis, but the inhibition of lipid, triglyceride, and cholesterol synthesis.

    In terms of blood glucose, you should have circulating plasma levels which are enough to stave off hypoglycaemia, even with the use of Anabolic Pump. As carbohydrates have not been ingested, the presence of Insulin (the main inducer of hypoglycemia) is not necessarily present. Anabolic Pump works through Insulin-reactive, though not dependent, pathways of energy metabolism. The lipolytic role is also enough to provide ample energy.

    Hope that helps!

    Following along B Good luck on this! I would recommend have some steel cut oats for that 2nd PWO meal. They digest pretty fast for me if you take in lots of liquids at the same time. Plus they taste amazing!

    25 x 12, 11, 9

    Treadmill:
    20 mins low/med intensity treadmill cardio

    Observations:

    These are some big jumps in weights as i have been using high rep high volume for quite some time. I am very pleased to be so strong in some of these exercises.

    I felt very very good. I very strong sense of well being. Stamina, endurance and performance were exceptional. This is testimony to my protocol. I used to use the empty stomach PowerFULL/SupperCissus Rx during my early rehab and experience similar yet not quite as sustained and pronounced as with this mega stack I am running. Like I said, I did this before and this does support the theory of what Mullet has outlined above. When I used carbs during a similar stack of AP and or P-Slin my stamina peaks and drops off sharply. This is not at all like that. It is progressive and borders a euphoric experience.

    This new cycle of training is a whole new split for me. It may or may not stay this way. I am always in experimentation.

    * Due to my injury some of my training is unilateral. The has caused some imbalance or symmetry issues as well as strength loss. Really it has always been there it is just that I am hyper observant of it now. So I am training with the intention of righting some symmetry and strength disparities.

    Comment:

    There is something that I want to speak of regarding my supplement choice. I can attest to the fact that I can credit a great portion of my results and performance to their use. Why? Because I have been doing this for about 7 years and I know my body, my nutrition and my physique. I am achieving body composition results that rival some older PS/PH and other anabolics without their use. I am not saying that physiologically they are rivals. What I am saying is that the results to my body composition are very pronounced.

    Could there be other supplements by other manufacturers that produce comparable results? Sure. Maybe. Maybe even likely. Why do I use USPLabs? Because for me it produces serious intellectual challenges regarding nutrition timing and this encourages me to learn and understand the physiological aspects of what they do and how they do it. Then I see it work just as promised.

    Will this happen for the beginner, the "got-my-diet-dialed-in-no-need-to-go-there-casual-recreational- social-muscleandfitness-reading-guy"? Nope. Why? If you need to ask you wouldn't understand.

    One other comment; if you are a blond or brunette 20 something year old soccer mom who drives an Escalade with 22' wheels and come dragging your two kids into the gym with you face and hair done up smelling of perfume and your breast implants displayed proudly for everyone to see while you take up space on a treadmill talking to your BFF on your cell phone...be courteous enough to say "thank you" when I hold the door for you when you walk in the gym behind me. You ain't "all that" girlfriend Some peoples kids...or wives

    On the Euphoric note, keep in mind that the latest neurobiological research is elucidating connections between essentially fatty-acids, lipid and triglycerides synthesis and metabolism, and dopamine (and thereby serotonin) receptor subtypes in the brain.

    As well, AMPk is a master regulatory switch for all cellular energy transactions; including those which occur on the molecular level (i.e., brain cell mitochondria). The combination of ReCreate and AP is producing fluctuations in AMP:ATP ratio, possibly in the hypothalamus. You are embarking on a great number of cellular reactions, and as your ATP lowers (as a response to energy demand), AMPk will tell your body (including your brain) to produce, produce, produce! In your brain's case, this means the production of energy and the stimulation of neurons.

    Couple this with increased levels of norepinephrine, hypothalamic ATP, and Caffeine, and you have a very prominent anabolic AND euphoric response. I have tried many protocols myself, but the one I have layed out for you B is the most physiologically complete.

    Treadmill:

    Observation/Comment:

    Here's the thing with legs - my phenotype is truly and endomorph. My greatest strength was my legs. I say was because I have not trained heavy on legs in like forever, if I even trained them. I have had two knew surgeries. I used to be a catcher when I played baseball in HS. I also held the class record for DL and Squats in one of the years of HS. I always trained legs heavy. Add that to my phenotype and my predisposition for that sort of fat gain...I have always had a phobia of being too big on the bottom. It is somewhat true in every aspect except for body building

    Still I do not have a desire for more mass on my lower body with the exception of my calves. When I had trained legs in the past it was always 20 reps leg presses for volume for purposes of metabolism and definition.

    Due to my neck injury putting a bar on my shoulders is OOTQ. So are heavy traditional dead lifts for obvious reasons. So I do machine work. I am looking to find my 8-10 rep range for weight. As you can see I am searching. Same goes for leg curls, but based on the drop off I reps it does look real close. With that movement I risk staining my tendons and ligament and aggravating my knee. Not desired by any means for any means or any reason. It just is what it is and thats the way it is.

    The calf work was heavy as well and suspect I am going to be very sore tomorrow. SLDS/Lunges was for what it was...just some more hamstring work without risking aggravating my neck.

    Oh...here's a good one for you guys. My 6yo daughter is a gymnist. I say gymnist because she is good and has accelerated
    in her age group very quickly. She was recruited by the coach to practice with the team that competes. She yet has the skills disciplines to compete but she is being exposed to it now. I anticipate we will be seeing some sort of Jr. O's or some sort of formal competition simply because she is good, a natural and she loves what she does.

    We banter about both of us being athletes. She has been my best moral support on my injury recovery. "Dad, that left tricep is really coming back up", "your looking really pumped today", "Daddy's belly is getting ripped"...she is 6 mind you.

    She'll do double bi poses with my in tandem. "Dad, feel it, this one is pumped", or best yet, "yeah, my left side is a little weak too, just like yours".

    Anyway. I was posting yesterday. It's 114 in AZ at the moment. We spent a lot of time in the house (I work weekends) and I spent too much time in front of this monitor. She comes up behind me and says to me (paraphrased); "You and I are kind of into the same thing. We train. You go to your gym and I go to my gym. What's different is you lift weights and I do gymnastics...and I don't take all the vitamins you do". I said, yeah, you and I are the same in that we like to train and we are athletes, different athletes. You are a gymnist and I am a bodybuilder. "Yeah, I don't lift weights but we both are growing muscles...but how is what you are doing on the computer with 'your guys' bodybuilding? How is this bodybuilding?"

    Now I know what my answer was. But I just thought I would send out some "take-out-food-for-thought" to 'my guys'.

    B if you're posting up videos like that, I have to request Green Day- Time of Your Life

    Glad to hear your daughter is interested in gymnastics; A passion/focus in kids will drive them a long way. I know I wouldn't be pulling off my marks in university if being a doctor hadn't been a lifelong goal of mine.

    And as for temperature, it was below 50 this morning here in Toronto

    "Don't want to miss a thing" is more my oldest 20yo daughter. Brother, I was weeping...sobbing...in that movie...and of course I was Bruce Willis I had all I could do just to post that link. Another is Nicklebacks - Far Away. Neither can I hear or sing from memory without nearly balling.

    I am not so affectionate towards Green Day but my 6yo daughter used to sing "Wake me up when september comes" even that far back when it was getting lots of air play.

    Now we, her and I, share Rob Thomas/Matchbox Twenty songs. We make fun of mom, with 3AM..."she thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway" and our recent fun is the new CD which has an interactive DVD and we are having fun with "How far we've come". Firtunately, despite her advance reading skill she does not see the irony in having fun with that song..."I believe the world is burning to the ground...lets see how far we've come. I believe the world is coming to end, I guess were gonna pretend....lets see how far we've come"

    BTW.. remind me why steel oats are better than regular whole oats.

    Steel cut oats are less processed. They take the whole oat groat and loosely cut it, whereas oats that are in flakes have gone through a processing and milling stage. Although the difference in nutritional value is rather negligible, the flavour and texture of steel cut oats if not over cooked is well worth the time. Nobody likes oatmeal because it's "Mushy", but steel cut oats have a nutty flavour and texture too!

    As a student I got lazy and would just microwave some Oatbran instead of steelcut oats in university, so before I headed home I picked up a 25lb bag of oat bran. Now that I have the time to finally cook the steel cut oats, I'm stuck with a mountain of oatbran

    I remember now about the steel cut. The thing is I grind them up and put them in with my protein powder. Otherwise I don't eat them cooked, with the exception of when implementing a refeed when doing a CKD. I just love them. But I belive the carb deprivation might have a lot to do with it too. Thanks for the tip though.

    I did yard work on Thursday. Weed pulling, clean-up from two double window removals for two French door installs. Caught a mild cold/allergy. Had a mild drip and drainage yesterday. Woke to a horse voice today. More drainage all day and it is now in my chest as we speak. At this time just prior to bed I am about spent, which means I will be in bad shape in the morning. It gets into my chest and it get rough. Infrequent but happens about once a years.

    Side note. My son comes in for a few weeks on Tuesday the 24th. Another cool piece of news. My two cousins are coming into town the same day. They and their band are playing The Vans Warped Tour stop here in Phoenix on the 25th.

    I'm a messed up now by this cold. It is effectively attacked the chest and head to the point of making me miserable. I'm hoping I can shake it tonight. I really am having a good ride with this training and supplementation that I hate to miss the first day of the week. We'll see.

    It does sound like fun. Thing is that it is 113 and it is an outdoor show. I'll likely enjoy the fact that they will enjoy themselves...from my comfortably air conditioned home.

    Get well soon brother.

    Can you believe that yet again today was filled with nothing but violent thunderstorms here in florida?

    Well, it is the rainy season down here, but still. I'll take the thunderstroms, just keep the damn hurricanes far, far away!

    I rarely get sick, but a few weeks ago when I caught a cold it was so hard to take my own advice that I give to others; Take a day or two off and let your body recover! Luckily with all the Vitamin C/Ginseng/Echinacea/Rest I was able to only be out of the gym for 2 days

    Observations:
    Against better judgment and common sense I went to the gym this morning. I woke earlier and got a good head start on the morning before cold symptoms could hit me. I looked like shat but my training was very good. Skipped cardio.

    I'm eating and sleeping and being a couch potato most all the day.

    Rented as watched Rambo - The Fight Continues. Watched it in the van while I watched my daughter through the window at gymnastics. Both the wife and I are sick so we had a late lunch and a movie and chilled out for a bit. I like the movie a lot. "Live for nothing. Or die for something"

    Still feeling bad but I sense the worst is behind me with some more Vit. C, liquids, food and sleep.

    EDIT: I have more videos to watch and need to get some rest. If you see me here again in the next 3-4 hours you have permission to ban me.
