    It appears I cannot do any type of strength training at the moment....or do much cardio for that matter

    Lift weights, does not matter light or heavy, and the next day I have joint pain in wrists, elbows, knees, hips and occasionally shoulder
    Total Gym, does not matter light or heavy, and the next day I have joint pain in wrists, elbows, and occasionally shoulder
    Bowflex, does not matter light or heavy, and the next day I have joint pain in wrists, elbows, and occasionally shoulder
    Stationary Bike, joint pain in hips and knees the next day
    and this pain lasts for a couple days.

    Be glad when the results of all that testing are in

    That sounds frustrating. Even with the bits of tendinitis I still have hanging around, I get frustrated when it cuts down my training, and I'm not dealing with anything that extensive. Hope they find you some relief soon.

    Spent well over fifteen travel hours flying home yesterday. What a tiring pain in the butt that is. LAX was especially fun. I asked several employees at LAX questions on where something was. They did not speak English. They tried, and they were nice, you could tell, they really were. But it was like being on a SNL skit.

    I flew out of Oslo Airport in Norway.....everyone spoke english...and multiple other languages as well. Also when I was in Narita airport I had no problem speaking english. I also flew out of LAX I had to talk a TSA guy down from tackling me and wrestling me to the ground because I was wearing a rigid knee brace and set off the metal detector. He just kept yelling at me to freeze, stand still, don't move. I had to scratch my arm and I though he was going to jump me. I truly believe if he was armed he would have pulled his side arm out. However english is not as prevalent in LAX as it was in Oslo or Narita. Beijing however, speaking only English could be a problem

    Ended up with one that's IP67 rated by itself anyway and relatively overspecced cells so they'll get an easy life.

    I'll admit to getting a bit more carried away than initially intended - but hey, a few weeks down the line without buying tobacco and it's paid for.

    Just over 12 hours since turning it on, most usual cigarette trigger events survived (meal, drinks, post tkd class etc.)...

    Stopped myself reaching for tobacco a couple of times, but that was more a reflex action than actually wanting one.

    And so to bed - next test is that first thing in the morning malarkey ;) Get through that without drama and I see no reason to go back.

    Had a pleasant surprise tonight.

    Jacob's Sensei gave him a purple heart bo that once belonged to his Sensei.

    well, 'habit' is part of the problem.
    Maybe you need to rearrange the house a little.

    WOW..... he would have been so honoured, that's fantastic, his Sensei must feel Jacob's a really devoted student :)

    I’m not sure what a Purple Heart bo is. Not a clue.

    But I sure do have an appreciation for what you just said.

    Wow. Please give him my congrats.
