Feb. 8, 2019. Injury Report.

4 months since I’ve worked out.  Jeez.  Oh, & pretty much worked out doing anything, not just GMAU items. 

1.  R ankle is tight.  I think it’s fine it just needs stretching.  Dunno how I injured that. 
2.  Hernias are better but still there.  R abd one seems to be the main culprit at the moment.   Inguinal are ok, but the R abd one I’ll have to watch.  ‘Have to hold my side when I cough or laugh.  I’m hoping as I drop wt and build abs it’ll improve. 
3.  Back is fine.   Well, not fine, just back to being what it normally is-full of knots and pops and cracks when I wiggle the right way.   Just have to watch it pulling the heavy patient up in bed. 
4.  3 colds in 3 months-2 bacterias and one flu.  I still have a bit of a cough but no fever. 
5.  R eye is no longer puffy.  Dunno how I injured that. 
6.  Head.  Self surgery a success again.  That’s lump #3 gone.  ‘Took care of 2 lumps 2 years ago, now 3 more have popped up.  All those years working in hospitals and surgery centers have paid off.  For <$20, I got an Xacto knife from Home Depot, rubbing alcohol and 4x4s from the drug store, and in 40 mins, whatever the hell barnacle was growing on my head is now gone.  3 weeks to completely heal/there to be no squishy spot on my head.  Now there’s just a slight dent.  Whatever. 

I think that’s it.


Jan. 16, 2019.

My 1st karate workout in 3 months. My R ankle is a little hot after 1/2 hr. I did a yellow belt class.

Lower back: Bettter but got worse. Heavy patients in hospital beds, grr.

Hernias: Spiked yesterday. Ow.

Colds: Almost gone! Haven’t taken cold medicine in at LEAST a wk, maybe 2!

June 16, 2017. Beginner Class 2.

I did this class:   Class 2 – Beginner Class.  It is a good full body workout  Plenty of warm up that’s not too tough with breaks in the activity, then the instruction and that has breaks in the activity.  Then practice stances.

I’ve not done Karate for 2 weeks-my lungs have just hurt too much and then the accompanying sleep needs.  Working graveyards doesn’t help.  What I need to do is not go out at night to places-cuz that’s how I picked up these 2 colds.  : (


5/27/17. Quizlet, flu, kata.

My lungs are getting better-another damn flu going around.  Working graveyards doesn’t help.  Quizlet helps a LOT.  I’m getting MUCH better at Japanese terms.  I’m not able yet though to do the fill-in-the-blank tests.  I watched the Kata videos a few times.  I can now see each individual move & recognize & name the move.  I think what I need to do is be able to verbalize, well, recognize each move first, then be able to verbalize them.
