Well people how are you all? I hope you are good.

I have not been up to much as I have had a long week at work, 5 shifts of 12 hours each and over the weekend it can be very long. There has not been a lot going on really, so there is not much to write about this time. I did have a great session in kickboxing learning how to teach and ways of engaging people that appear not to be doing great in a session, this was a real eye opener. 

I started looking for different music to listen to and to chill out to. I have found out I have a great liking for country music. Mainly KANE BROWN, a young man who I think is 24 yrs old and with his voice…..dam killer…..I have watched some of his videos he posts out there too. 

Kane Brown

I have gone out to get his music and this is the only one I can get in my town. Believe me when I say it is a great CD. I have watched some of his videos he posts and he seems to be so much for his fans, getting them up on stage in concert. What he did for his mums birthday and he video it was awesome. He seems to be a very humble man and doesn’t seem to be one of those men that has let fame go to his head. His music to me has that feeling of no matter how bad ya day has been it doesn’t matter remember your friends. 

well that’s all I have for now. Did say it was short this time. But I do recommend that you even try listening to his music, my favourite tracks are Heaven, What If, and What’s Mine is Yours.

Remember people be nice to people, no matter what they say to you, at the end of the day what they say are only words. Words only hurt you or offend you if you give meaning to what they say, so don’t give them meaning, they are just words. To many people now days are to easily offended by what people say or do, those people are only offended because they are feeding into what the other person says. Just laugh at them and walk away. 

Stay safe, look after the loved ones and keep real. Remember they are just words.

Good morning everybody, how are you all?  I have had a week off from work and it was glorious. Now this is my first week back at work and I am running the shifts, what a start to the week. We have had a week of new starters at work and this means lots and lots of ID badges for the new staff and explanations about policies and procedures. 

Well I went to the gym today and tried to do some cardio, due to an injury I got some how, a week and a half ago I got a pain in my ankle, then it spread to the top of my foot and up the right side of my shin. It only hurts a little when I run or walk and basically move my foot. I can put weight on it or if I stand on it with no pain or discomfort, I’m not sure if my foot is bruised a little but it is a little swollen a little bit. I have taken painkillers and anti inflamitaries

Well it has been a while, since I have been on here and it has been a little busy for me. I have had a birthday which was quiet as usual, but the good thing is my parents came over to visit me on my birthday, even though it was only about 45 minutes to an hour. The main thing is that I saw them, no time is better than no time. In the afternoon my girlfriend came over and for my birthday and got me an amazing present(which I was not expecting) she got me a TV for the bedroom, I was over whelmed with what she got me.

For the week of my Birthday I booked a week off work and it was amazing, I have been to the gym and tried a new workout. It is HIIT cardio for 15 minutes and medium weights but each rep was done slowly, so I done reps really slowly and I found out I could not do as many reps with my usual reps. But I do feel the burn more and more and have started to bulk a little more. My diet has been small but often so I eat about 4-5 times a day but low carbs. I have kept the cardio down to a minimal due to an injury to my ankle, I did not slip, trip or fall. I feel pain in my ankle and yes it is a little swollen and a little painful but manageable, I feel pain in the left leg, left side of my shin, ankle and left side of the top of my foot. It is ok when I don’t walk but starts to hurt when I walk but not to bad. I have taken pain killers and anti-inflamitaries but with no effect.

I did go out for a few drinks on Friday night for a few birthday drinks, I arranged drinks with people I woke with but only my team leader turned up, one bloke couldn’t because his wife was working so he had to look after the kids which is cool. One bloke had family issues and others did not reply or turn up. I did have a good night having a few drinks with my boss, nice catch up and a great laugh. 

At the moment I am drinking Jack Daniels with ice and watching The big Bang Theory while typing. funny as and Sheldon singing with friends mom. Plus I have been studying about kickboxing, studying styles and combinations. this links in with trying to keep fit , I have tried to bulk up a little and now it is time to cut down and lose a little fat in my body. I would love a body to show a little muscle and be able to have  photo shoots, for a laugh. It would make me feel confident I think. 

Now it is Sunday 21st October and it is 18:57 and just cooked food for work tomorrow which consists of pasta and spag bol, plus also chicken salad, that would be two spag bol and one chicken salad. Plus I will have a slim fast shake for breakfast  and snack. I now it going to be difficult as people can be difficult at work and right now I am totally chilled from work. Plus I may go to the gym after work  or do a work out at home with my chin up frame. 

Well I hope everyone is ok, I have missed writing but in my mind set I have to try and alter things. I hope everyone is ok. please feel free to message me . Stay safe and be aware, look after yourselves. Love you all

Good day to you all, I hope you are all well. 

Well today was interesting so far and it is only 14:32 so far. I just been up the local shop (co-op) and got a bottle of white wine with 7up to make a spritzer or two. On the way back there was a man speaking or should really say shouting in another language at people. He was staggering along the street as he shouted at people but did not come across as aggressive at the minute. One lad across the street was shouted at and he called back ‘who you shouting at?’ . then as I passed him he went to high five me but also grabbed my right arm. I turned and said ‘what the hell’? , he said something in a language I did not understand and then pushed me on the right shoulder. I stood my ground and asked him what his problem was and he raised his hand up, I thought he was going to hit me so I stepped back and kicked him in the stomach  know a front kick. as he went down I turned and walked off quite quickly as I am not one for fights. I would rather run than fight unless it vital to stand. 

Well all I can say about work is, it has been busy with new staff starting and people going missing. but busy is always good as it makes the time go quicker. My kickboxing sessions have been going well. I am getting on top of reversing punches, which is one of my difficulties at the minute but I am getting through it. But there are times where I think I wish I could teach my own classes. When I get my Black Belt I will go under my instructors name and his insurance until I get established then go my own way. But the thing is, out of respect for my instructor I will keep his class name and his name for chief instructor. I do enjoy my classes and so look forward to teaching fitness and kickboxing all in one.

I have found lately that people are becoming more and more selfish in society. For example I was walking into town today and a saw an elderly woman walking with a stick and she was walking slowly. I was walking behind her and she stopped walking and asked me to come by, I said to her ‘no carry on I am not in a hurry’. So she turned and carried on, then two idiots barged passed her and nearly knocked her to the floor. I jumped forward and tried to grab the old lady, to stop her falling over, just in time. I shouted at the two idiots and told them to show respect, plus a few choices of bad language. As I did this the two idiots turned and started getting confrontational with me, here we go again, I seem to attracted these types of people. Then from no where a police officer came from somewhere and stepped in. The look on these two idiots faces was priceless. This police officer was built like a brick shit house, muscles everywhere and turned towards these idiots and basically told them to apologise and walk away. To be fair if he told me to jump I would ask how high. lol

Well I am chilling right now and watching a movie on Netflix Ouija: Origin of evil, Not to bad but not scary at all. I still also still looking for a new job, something exciting, and more demanding to ask for. Something that will push me to my limits and make me better mentally and physically.

Today is my day of rest and maybe I will hit the gym later as I have just completed four challenges in four months, run or walk 100-125-150-200 miles in a month. maybe next month I will try cycling the same distances as well. Just to get my fitness better, even though I go kickboxing once a week and the gym three to four times a week I need to concentrate on my diet to strip the body fat away , just a little.

Well I am off now and I will try and get back to you all later on this weekend. I hope everyone is well and please feel free to leave me a message. ask me if there is anything you would like to discuss, and I will do my best to help out.

Take care and stay safe no matter where you are.
