My "Proud ME" Story:
What Made Me "ME"
i've learned from different people, jimmy mamony was my first trainer in 1999-2000. jason powell gave me the go-ahead when i was just about ready to go for my first contest. i figured he knew what he was talking about and trusted him/then myself.
My Body Proud Moments
always wanted the great physique, gave up, and picked it up again at age 49 finding that i can still grow
Stretching My Comfort Zone
visualize, learn, and help others
Talents I Wish to Hone.
just not giving up is the main news
My Passion Project:
Alan Knight, 58, professional musician,
My Philosophy / Message / Wisdom:
getting my doctorate, or whenever something i organize and rehearse turns out great
My Inspiration:
Players I Wish to Associate With and Why:
church musician and part-time helper for a large weekly rummage sale which involves lifting the heavy items or pushing carts for the various departments, picking up furniture from homes. teacher/recital organizer, writer
Look for ME Here:
i liked the weeks before it and all the reasoning i went through at that time, then at a bathroom break seeing an external oblique in the mirror i didnt know i had defined under the bronze lotion-the nice attention of some spectators afterward-in fact, the whole process: seeing a few other guys fighting for their dreams; masters level and only contestant showing up for that category, posed with the second oldest guy who had much contest experience--the good definition came out the next day, awesome: a day late but awesome
My GAME Play Strategy:
a news article came out on me and more attention from my townies
Skills I Have:
to get to 195 lbs with good proportions
Referred by (and why):
email invite from jason powell

I am thankful for those who have wished me well. Not only was I sick in Nov.-Dec. with a virus that took all of my strength but I have known and have been dealing with Parkinson's since the summer of 07 when my left side went fairly numb. Thanks to Robert Rogers, PhD., discovered just before Christmas, I have a new outlook: recovery by building health. Taking what I think are the right supplements, I feel loads better. I kept trying to impress my mind with bodybuilding but no success at staying with it until this week, when I explained my situation to Curt Griffin! Somehow, his story changed everything for me. I did five pushups immediately and repeated that set two more times later.The hunger to do more came back into my mind! That evening, I stumbled upon a pic of a man my age or older with a magnificent build, as if to say, "Look what still can be done!" The next day, I did six sets of eight with feet in different positions (and visions of more feet positions than three in the future). Today, I did three sets of pullups, only 2 reps just to get started. I just watched Kane's pullup video. What a challenge ahead to be able to do that. Working toward recovery and strength is great. This site is truly working for me. Thank you, Curt, and everyone else. I love how this growth and change bounces off one another.

I've been sick for a month, living as death, but living with the strangest, long-lasting virus I've ever had. Today, I'm doing some cleans, deadlifts at home to rejoin those who are living.

First encouraging success: new strengrh in left shoulder, more tightness in left pec, a little soreness in right triceps. After a long sickness and two other major problems, it's good to finally take a step. The step was walking on hands with feet on ball and the same reversed with heels on ball.

Here is a contest which doesn't seem to me that great. However, the excitement is there, for sure--a good mental warmup.

Getting on my feet.

As hard as it was, I found a way to start over. I needed better nutrition. Walking is the form of exercise that is best for me. My usual daily is a mile and a half. I am slim, but today I felt proud of my body for the first time in months, or perhaps for the first time ever! I put on shorts and a tank top for the walk today. I want more development, and I'm so thankful for some renewed drive!

I get so much insight from reading people's profiles about their thinking and about their history.

Staring the blog post--week of beginning workouts

Posted on January 23, 2009 at 4:38pm 4 Comments

I've been using the comment box for a blog. Now I'm starting my own blog, which I invite comments in. This week, I'm starting workouts with the goal of coming up with a decent picture for a new profile pic. This one was just a study. I'm on a path of healing from Parkinson's. Parkinson's really makes you think about your body, no matter what you do. So, I will put more thought into my exrcise than before. It will take a while to reverse the imbalances and exhaustion. I am happy to work out… Continue
