Title: Railgun's Training Log
Post by: Railgun on December 31, 2015, 06:40:29 PM
Get it, Railgun... because we vault rails.... anyone?

I have been injured for the past 6 months, pretty sure I strained a ligament in my big toe from kicking a vault box too hard, so I have been easing into training the past two weeks because it still gives me problems. I know it isn't broken because I got an x-ray so as long as I stop when it gives me problems I should be fine. Anyway now the actual point of this journal.

Warm Up
Beginner Gymnastics Rings Workout (Gymnastics Rings are so fun and challenging, I am so glad I bought them)
       Toe Conditioning in between sets
Speed Vault Technique Practice
Cool Down/Stretching

The vault box I built is a little tall for comfortably learning speed vaults but that is just me complaining. I just need to pay attention to my foot placement more so I have enough power to make it over the box and not kick it. After 6 months of not doing parkour I am hesitating when I know I have the ability to do them. I also need to work on breaking bad habits such as hand placement and stutter stepping that I have.

I am trying to get back up to speed so I can have fun and keep up at the Annual Parkour Jam in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 16th. I hope that having a deadline will help me improve faster.

Goals:
-Be able to comfortably do speed and kong vaults by January 16th
-In 1 month be able to land silently from 3 feet consistently
-In 1 month be able to preform the beginner gym. ring exercise completely (so far I cannot do the max reps)

Warm Up
Ring Exercise
Light Stretching

Today was weird. It was a no burn day and of course one of my neighbors had to light a fire. The smoke stuck around for several hours and I like my lungs so I decided to wait to work out. When I did exercise my muscles were sore from having to move air conditioning units after yesterdays workout so I did not have time to physically recover. Then my brother decided to light off the left over little fireworks that we had, leaving a bad smell in the air and disrupting my work out. Because of this I did not do any vaulting and just stretched and went inside. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Rest Day
Title: Re: Railgun's Training Log
Post by: Railgun on January 03, 2016, 08:13:08 PM
Warm Up
Jump Rope
Ring Workout
Speed Vault Practice
Roll Practice
Landing Practice
Stretch

Got in a pretty good workout. Bailed pretty hard one time but that happens. Did not eat as well as I should of, I ate junk because I was hungry and it is kind of late right now. Really need to stick to my diet.

It has been raining a lot the past 2 days so I have not trained. Hopefully the grass isn't marshland tomorrow.

Warm Up
Jump Rope
Ring Workout
Stretch

So I was stupid. I strained my wrist and my elbow from sleeping wrong. I then decided to work out. Now it seems I am going to be doing lots of precisions tomorrow because I cannot use my right arm. On the bright side 12 more days to the jam and I just need to tighten up my speed vaults / get comfortable with kongs.

Small Update:

The elbow injury is giving me more problems then I expected, so I have not done much other then stretch and stay loose throughout the past couple days. I have injured myself enough times to know that a week of doing nothing, while frustrating, is better then a month.

When I get back however, I am going to start the 365 days of parkour challenge that SebastianCannon told me about. It sounds fun.

http://www.parkourpanels.com/?p=355 (http://www.parkourpanels.com/?p=355)

That comic kinda explains my current situation. The Jam was super fun as expected, and I learned how to rail slide. One guy brought a pad so I decided to try and practice front flips; thing is I had never tried doing them before so after about an hour of practicing them I still couldn't do it and I was tired out. But that happened after training for like 2-3 hours on other things so i decided to cool down and join the spectators till I was ready to practice precisions.

But that was the 16th of January, and since then I haven't been able to train. I did not use my arms much during the jam so the day after it did not hurt much. However the fun of having a manual labor job gave me plenty of opportunity to re-injure it. So it has been three weeks now since I injured it and I am still having problems.

Good news is my diet has been really clean, so I think I will have the energy needed when I do get back to training. I am a little frustrated that my ring exercise progress has pretty much been reset, but I think now that I know the techniques I can get back to where I was super fast. I am going to see a doctor about my foot injury so hopefully I can get that fixed in the following 1 or 2 months.
 Save me, I am so bored from not being able to train.  :P

Yesterday I went to the doctor and he said I might have sheered a ligament or be having radial nerve pain in my toe. The next step is to go get an MRI which I am going to have to pay for because of my high insurance deductible. I decided years ago however that my health is more important to me then money, and will not be stopped by it.

I felt really good though with how congratulatory the Doc was being about me loosing 30+ lbs from the last time I saw him. Because of that I think I am going to log my calories on rest days and days where I cannot work out for now on, just so I can see some progress and not just gaps in the log. I actually feel pretty good about life right now, I think I am going to spend the extra money to start going to my school's film club. If there is one thing I am decent at it is directing, and I have not done it for awhile.

(At the end of the day I am going to edit in my calories into the post)

I am going to start back up my ring training tomorrow, only I think I am going to start doing it every other day. I keep forgetting that I haven't worked out for a while and have been trying to train at the intensity I used to.  :-\  I guess I am to eager to push past my limits.  :P
 
I should really be keeping my calories between 1,800 and 2,000; to do that I need to start taking a count of my calories throughout the day instead of just at the end of it.

2/18/16

I have decided to wait until after I get my MRI done to continue my training, which leaves me with two paths.
   1) Say the MRI comes back and there is nothing structurally wrong. I will be going back to basics and make my workouts consist of   
           pilates (for core strength), basic joint conditioning (I remember my ankles and wrists giving me a lot of problems when I was
           younger), biking, qm, and 20 minutes of parkour drills a day.
   2) Two is if I need surgery, which means I am probably going to take a couple months to recover. First step is to learn to break dance
           with crutches, then how to take public transportation with my new mad skills. Step two is to overhaul my diet for optimum weight
           loss (-3 pounds a week), and start planning all of my meals ahead of time so that I can lose those last 20-30 pounds (also I need     
           to find a desk job). Step three is probably going to be me recondition my toe after it is healed because unlike normal people we in 
           the parkour community decided it was a good idea to run up walls. This will probably take a month or two also. Then when all that
           is done I move on to path one, only difference is the time delay and at least -20 pounds.

But it is always good to have a plan.

I got sick for a couple days and then just forgot about updating the training journal. Tomorrow I am going to force myself to do it proper but for tonight an update.

Friday I am going to have my eyes x-rayed to check for shrapnel or metal shavings. I very much doubt there are any, but it is better then getting something ripped out of my eye or the metal getting heated up and damaging them from the giant magnet that is the MRI machine.

Next Monday I am going to have the actual MRI done, finally, and I will go from there.

3/10/16> Tried to eat well but was feeling terrible so I honestly do not know how many calories I ate.

I just kind of realized how much I need more variety in my diet. It is kind of hard with braces because I cannot eat things like carrots or broccoli as they will bend them. I am going to try tomorrow to eat as little of what I usually eat as possible and try to come up with some variety for my diet. I am the only one in my house who eats clean, so it is hard to not just eat chicken, PB&J, etc every day as I do not have a lot of options.

I am so happy right now.

News of my foot injury, it is a bone contusion (aka a bone bruise).This means I can work out again ;D. As for what I am doing now like I posted a couple weeks ago

I do have some limits though to what I can do. To heal it properly I am absolutely not allowed to hit it again. In the state it is now it will heal fine and I can use it; but if I hit it bad enough it could cause permanent damage. As such I am laying down 2 ground rules going forward, until it is healed all the way I will: (1) stop if it starts to hurt (2) not do movements such as kongs that will risk my hitting my foot hard. Heat and good fitting shoes are the best way for me to help recovery [good excuse to buy some new training shoes].

Tomorrow when I figure out all of what I am doing I will post it, but for today I just
-warmed up
-biked 4-5 miles
-cooled down

I am going to increase my calorie intake to 2100 now that I am working out.

I found this awesome spot for training precisions, vaults, rolls, and wall runs by my first class that I get to 30 min. early. Definitely going to do my light skills training there 3 times a week. I am going to start my 365 days of parkour challenge tomorrow.

I will be trying to start up pilates by the end of next month but I will have to take an introductory class that happens like twice a month.

I can finally take up fencing again, I will be the first and only parkour pirate Rail Beard! fear me!

My thoughts are scattered now and this post is not the most organized, but man am I glad to write it.

Need to get ready for bed so short update I guess

Do not know how much I ate

Worked on percisions and balancing for 40 minutes today, my back started to hurt so I stopped (I do not think I was absorbing the shock properly with my legs).

I will get my workout schedule sorted tomorrow.

When I woke up today it was suppose to be a rest day...

Morning:
>10-15 minutes of balancing drills before class
Noon:
>Rock Climbing [not the best idea when your legs are sore and you just had trouble walking up and down stairs]
>Inflatable obstacle course [I won :P]
Evening:
>Short amount of frisbee
>100 yard dash with heavy backpack to catch a bus, barely making it after playing frisbee

Did not do it all at once, but still a bit much when you are sore. Just took a hot bath and am going to stretch out before going to bed. I know I put off making my workout routine twice, but tomorrow is for sure going to be a rest day (boo homework) so I will sort it out tomorrow. I also need to eat like 500 more calories before I go to bed because I did not eat lunch. I will have to start up fencing next week it looks like. I am going to start using a calendar because there is a lot of stuff I need to do. Sigh, it's 9:00pm and I just want to go to bed but now I am worrying about all the stuff I have to do.

Side note: need a goodbye specifically for parkour along the lines of Star Wars's "May the Force be with You"; I think I am going to just start coming up with random things. "May your shoes always grip"

Balancing drills were the only thing I could really do while sore. Besides that I stretched out and took a hot bath for my muscles.

It seems biking actually opened up my foot to be injured more easily, so I am not going to be biking for the couple months my foot takes to heal.

                              So, now presenting Railgun's "I have not had a steady exercise program for 10 months" routine:

Really with my limited options I am going to be doing a 30 minute bodyweight and qm workout every day for the first month or two, coupled of course with 5-20 minutes of parkour.

Standard Workout:
>Warmup (for now it is going to consist of just joint rotations and making sure everything is loose)
>Bear Crawl [forwards then backwards]
>Side Passes
>Duck Walk
>Crab Walk [forwards then backwards]
>Some Sprints back and forth
>Lizard Walk
>Body Weight Squats
>Monkey Walk [both sides]
>Plank
>Some Sprints back and forth
>Frog Jumps
>Cat Walk
>Cool down (jogging back and forth then breathing and stretching)

>Parkour Training WOOOT!

Obviously I will be tweaking it during the next couple days, but that seems like the best plan right now.

I found an ankle conditioning routine to do throughout the day that I am going to be doing for now on. I am also going to work on proper body weight squat form.

Hopefully I am not to sore to actually work out tomorrow which seems like a possibility.

Balance drills, I am getting pretty good at them. I was counting my calories, but then I had a chipotle burrito so I definitely went over. I have been trying out foam rolling, and so far it is working really well. I feel better and less sore after I use it. I also bought some new parkour shoes that will arrive at my house the day of the Jam on the 5th. Should be fun.
Title: Re: Railgun's Training Log
Post by: Railgun on April 10, 2016, 06:24:02 PM
Time to start updating this again.

So I have some sad news for me. I had to put the 365 day parkour challenge on hold. Even though I was trying to keep it to as low as an intensity as I could at the end of the day the pain in my foot would not go away. I am going to have to take the next 4-5 months off to try to heal it. All I want to do is parkour, but I am going have to hold myself back until I am ready. That has not prevented me from thinking up routes and challenges to do in all the places I visit. So I will have plenty of things to try out when I am healed.

This means all I can do is upper body, core strengthening, and stretching. And a limited variety at that. But so be it, I am going to keep trying to live the dream I have had since I was 12 years old... Do traceurs dream of vaulting sheep?

Literary references taken care of, I am going to start counting my calories again.

Breakfast
>French Toast: 330
>Bacon: 180
>BANANA!: 120
>Milk: 120
Lunch
>Chicken and Avocado Burrito: 525
>Kiwis: 126
Snack
>Sourdough: 160
>Spinach Dip: 100
Dinner:
>Spaghetti: 800

Total: 2461 cal.

I was not paying attention to calories and over ate by 661 calories. The spaghetti was so good though... I will just have to watch my diet for the next week so it is not a huge deal. My target again will be 1,800 calories a day. Though I will probably only eat 1,600 tomorrow to balance today's amount. That way it will be about 4,000 calories over the two days averaging 2,000.

Side note: I am totally making my personal text "Do traceurs dream of vaulting sheep?"... Nah, never mind.

I only ate a forth of the seafood quesadilla. I am confident it was less than 500 calories, but I have no way to measure it. Oh, and I switched to a whole grain bread. It's meh, but it does not taste bad.

Working on building new workout routine where I can still let my foot heal. This unfortunately means until it heals no leg days. My goal is to use body-weight exercise to strengthen my joints and help lose weight. Also I want to slowly increase my flexibility (need to strengthen and stretch muscles together, if I get to flexible without strengthening than I might have a higher risk of injury). I am going to start sleeping 9 hours a day. I started taking vitamins so I know my foot is getting the calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium it need to heal. Since I have to start going to bed at 8pm I am going to figure out my workout routine tomorrow. I have not been satisfied with sitting around waiting for my foot to heal, so I am going to prepare for when I can move fully again.

Breakfast
>Boiled Eggs: 140
>Cheese: 70
>Vitamins: 30
>Apple: 100
Dinner
>Milk: 120
>Chicken and Avocado Burrito: 525

Do not know how many calories I ate today.

I know I keep putting off figuring out my workout, but I am going to build it and actually do it tomorrow. I am going to do it on a MWF schedule, so that means I will be able to try it out tomorrow to see what I need to adjust.

>The Work Out:

Warm-Up

Cat Camels
Tophold 3x10s
Modified Crunch Hold
Reverse Row Sitback 3*3
Knees To Elbows
Push Ups
Finger Strengthening
Wrist Conditioning

Wrist/Hand/Finger Stretches
Active Arm Stretches
Hip/Back Stretches
Toe Touch Progression
Ankle Rotations
Bodyweight Squat Progression

>Some things I noticed:

Lower back hurts (preexisting condition)
Mid back tight
Wrists poping (no pain)
Shoulders not sore (need exercise for shoulders)
Neck sore (could be from posture)
Blood flow in wrists good
Feel Pretty loose

Will add more push up variations when I get stronger to work chest and shoulders.

Do not feel like typing out what I ate so I am just going to go with the amount of calories:

Total: 1761 cal.


With that out of the way, my reflection on what I need to change about the work out I did yesterday. First off I am going to move my hand and wrist conditioning to the days I am not working out. I was not having any problems with my hands today, but I feel my hands and wrists are not strong enough to take the workout and the conditioning on the same day. I also think I am going to skip the body weight squat progression as I need to use my feet to balance doing the movements which may be aggravating my injury.

Off the topic of training I am going to have to spend tomorrow thinking about where I am headed in life and what I am doing right now... can't do it now if I want a decent nights sleep.

Finals are coming up and I got caught up in stressing over them. I have not been working out or keeping track of my calories. So my goal is to start back up again tomorrow. For now though I need to go to bed.

Did wrist conditioning and my stretches, but that is about it. I really do not know how much I ate today, but I do not think I went over 1800 calories. Have my last final tomorrow and then I just need to finish a project for school. Then I will be on summer break. I hope my foot heals by the start of next semester. Since I can not train or be active my summer is going to be me working to kill time. It is easy to lose track of my goal when I can not do much... Not much to do other than keep trying though.

Also 32oz of water left to drink tonight.

Running low on motivation right now, routine is what is keeping me going.

Quick Entry

Ate about 1750 cal., forgot to do wrist conditioning, finished my final project so I am free from homework till next semester. Got hit with a face full of perspective, starting tomorrow I plan on updating fully again. Still forgetting to finish the gallon of water a day.

So I decided to start using crutches to walk around to help my foot heal. It is something I should have done sooner but I cannot change the past. I have not been doing wrist or arm conditioning because I want to give my body some time to adjust to walking on the crutches . I also need to keep up stretching my leg because I am no longer putting a lot of weight on it. I have lost like 65 pounds so far so none of my clothes fit me anymore, but that is why belts exist. After I lose these last 20 or so pounds I am going to have to buy all new clothes which is going to cost a bit. Totally worth it though.

It has been 9 days since my last entry, though it feels like it has been a month.

I have almost gotten used to walking on crutches, my arms are still sore but nothing I can do about that. I have been icing my foot almost everyday so hopefully that keeps any inflammation down. I have been sleeping too much lately, I need to get back on a consistent schedule again. I had about two days where I was too lazy to make any food so I ate poorly, but the rest I stuck to the limit of 1800 cal. I have finally reached 160 pounds, I still feel fat but at least I am making progress; 20-25 more pounds to go. As soon as my foot is healed I am going to start swimming heavily. I figure it is the best way for me to get in shape after losing all this weight so that I can train my whole body and keep myself from injuring it by trying too much at once. I am also going to pay for a conditioning trainer once a week to help with my spine injury when I start swimming. Parkour is the one thing in my life that I am certain I want to do, so I am going to do it even if it takes me another year before I can start the basics again.

I know what I am doing, I am avoiding my journal because I have been slacking off.

It has been 7 days since my last entry. 6 days ago my toe injury got way worse. I might of hit it I do not remember, but it got red and swelled up. I have been using crutches because I am no longer comfortable walking on it. I am going to keep using crutches until it heals all the way. That means I am going to have to do stretching and mobility stuff to counteract the effects using crutches for the next 2 or 3 months (that's me being optimistic).

I have been slacking on my diet which is weird as I am finally under 160 pounds for the first time in 4 years. You would think reaching that milestone would have made me want to work harder at it. Starting tomorrow morning I am going to.

I slacked off today on my diet using the excuse that my teeth hurt too much from my braces (which is true).

As a side not, update your guys's journals or if you do not have one make one. Even if you post something simple like "did workout" or typing out why you didn't do something. I find that I am more motivated to update mine when I can read other peoples progress or what they are doing. Technically I am being selfish but with me being injured and in "parkour purgatory" [someone break out the trademark] it is nice to read about other peoples progress.

Doc said 2 more months left before my injury is healed up. All that I can do now is eat right, sleep well, and wait. I am going to experiment with some prehab work tomorrow to see what I can do during the down time.
Title: Re: Railgun's Training Log
Post by: Railgun on June 16, 2016, 08:46:05 PM
I decided this morning that since my foot should be healed in two months I am going to lose 20 pounds in that time period. More concretely my goal is to weigh 138.6 pounds on 7/28/2016. Starting from today weighing 155.6 pounds (scale is off, so actually around 153) and losing 3 pounds per week it should be possible. The reason 138.6 pounds sounds reasonable is because of my various injuries I have been unable to work out for the past year and a half. I just do not have that much muscle to drive my weight up. And lets be reasonable, if 10 pounds in I find that I shouldn't lose more weight I will stop.

I am going to have to be creative though because I am still injured meaning it is hard to actually work out to burn calories. Should be fun. Because of the nature of weight fluctuating I will only be reporting how much I weigh on here at the start of each week, I have an excel sheet I have been using for the days in between. As an example on 9/7/2015 I weighed 179.2 pounds, so it took me 9 months to lose the last 25. I truly believe that if I make a targeted effort I can lose 20 pounds in the next 2 months.

All that being said, that means I have to find a way to burn an extra 900 calories per day to keep up with that. Meaning 9 hours of sleep, standing at my desk, and moving around while not aggravating my injury while it heals. I do not think it is going to be simple, but I will make it work.

>Prunes: 100
>Cheese: 70

Total 1850 cal. (today was hectic and my father took me and my brothers out to dinner so I did not eat as optimally as I could of)

Start of Week 1 Weight: 155.6

Side note: I have no surviving progress pictures of my weight loss for the 65 pounds I lost (this is because whenever I got frustrated with my progress I would delete them as I could not tell the difference... all I saw was fat me), so I am going to be taking a picture a day for the remaining 20 or so pounds and combining all of them into a short video when I finish losing weight. Something to show myself the progress I made.

Got home late so did not get everything done today that I should of.

So I was four ounces over my target weight for today, but honestly that seems really good. I was stuck at 154.8 for a few days but it worked out. Subtracting water weight and stuff I think I am there, but just in case.
153.0/152.6 -> Goal for next week still 149.6 lbs

I need to start my stretching earlier, past two nights I have stopped because it had gotten too late.

Any way, I have decided to try to get my little brother interested in parkour. I figure he will be a lot happier in his life if I can get him to take charge of his own health as I am seeing in him the same mistakes I made when I was younger... he is always eating junk food and is gaining weight. In other words he has become chubby and I am going to need a work out buddy when I heal up. Anyone got an extra health potion?

Been a couple days since my last post. My brother just finished up his first week of parkour training and conditioning; he has a ways to go, but he is having fun and making progress. That is all I want out of him. We were doing landing drills today and just from jumping around and showing him how to do things my back is hurting. It's a reminder that after my foot heals I still have a ways to go before I can confidently do the basics of parkour.

My weight loss got side tracked because I was not paying attention to my diet. I have since fixed that mistake and am on my way to continue losing weight. The schedule for my little brothers training is conditioning Mon/Wed/Fri and parkour Tues/Thurs/Sat with a rest day on Sunday. I am getting a small workout walking him through the exercises and techniques which will hopefully help me with losing weight. I am going to have to dial my involvement back a bit though because I agitated my injuries teaching him. The tendon in my arm is going to take longer to heal now, just have to take more hot baths and be mindful of it.

Got really off track the past two weeks, I think what did it was my horrible sleep schedule. Going to wake up no matter what at 5:00am tomorrow. Also just 27 days until my injury should be healed. I think I am going to play Jet Set Radio Future tomorrow to help kill time.

Foot still has not healed all the way and since school has started today I am starting to feel depressed. I do not know if I could handle having to pull myself through school while injured for another year. Hopefully it heals up in the next month.

So I was in my exercise science class when the teacher said something that hit a mark. He talked about how he, as a personal trainer, had to work with clients who did not want to get better to the point where some would sabotaging their own recovery. He talked about how after years of experience he could watch an athlete for a training session and tell you who did not want to be there, it was in their actions and body language. Now I want nothing more than to get better and I would never sabotage my recovery process, but I have noticed something. I have gotten used to being injured. The fact of the matter is I have stopped pushing my boundaries. I find myself questioning whether or not I am a traceur even though I love parkour. I have been sitting and waiting forever to heal, neglecting friends and my other interests. I honestly do not know how I am going to get out of this hole, but I am going to try.

For now lets change something. I decided starting today instead of trying to lose weight by eating 1800 calories daily I would try to maintain my weight. I classify myself as having a sedentary lifestyle because I am forced to wait for injuries to heal, this make the amount of calories I should eat around 2050 per day. I read some research and found that injured peoples caloric needs can increase by 10% to 20% depending on what the injury is. This takes the number of calories I should eat up to 2460 on the high end. I decided to start at 2400 calories a day and depending on whether I gain or loss weight to adjust the amount I am eating by increments of 100 to 200. As of today I am 148.4 lbs. If in the next two weeks I go over 151 lbs I am going to dial back on how much I eat.

I am going to try to change one thing a day for the next week or so and try to get myself back on track. First change - Diet.

It's been too long since I last updated. I let go of my diet and now my scale reads 158 (granted it may just be broken). I am still trying to take it easy on my arm till it is finished healing so I only held pushup position and did some negative pull ups. I also sprained my Achilles tendon a week ago so I am holding off on the squats until that is healed.

I am going to start actively rehabbing my arm and achilles injuries more than I have been. Also I may start adding squats back into my routine because my achilles tendon has gotten better. Besides that I am going to start increasing the number of reps for my Floor Extension and go up a progression for the leg lifts. Also just to make note of it my right knee is bothering me as I type this.

Forgot to post an entry last night, better late then never.

So I can almost do the full progression of the Leg Lifts without my back popping, which means that the muscles in my back and core have definitely gotten stronger since I started. I am going to guess another 1 or 2 weeks of work before I can do the full thing, then onto the next progression. I am still struggling a bit with the Floor Extensions but I think I am going to plateau with them soon, I should start looking into progressions for that too. I am still not confident in my ankle flexibility so for now I am doing Wall Sits instead of Squats. Also I am going to start logging my morning work too.

I feel pretty off today, so I did not workout. Plan on doing so tomorrow however. The front of my ankle is sore so I am going to have to work around it so I don't aggravate it.

I started my workout today and I think I have realized why I haven't made any real progress. I have been trying to work out with challenge in mind instead of fixing my injuries. What I mean by that is that working out use to be training until I couldn't go any further and then train some more. For right now I can't get away with that. As much as I am subconsciously fighting it I need to focus on healing my injuries first and foremost. I can't do that if I keep re-injuring myself every 5 days. So back to basics again I guess. I'll figure out what that looks like tomorrow.  :-\

Dude, it is great to see that you're starting the challenge. I'll start posting here every day as well so that we can both be encouraged. I'm currently on day 28 and the improvements I've seen in my body are phenomenal. Keep going strong, your journal is an inspiration not only for me but for the thousands of others that have viewed it.
