My achilles is feeling much better so I am going to try and start throwing the weights.

I eat very wholesomely, but from time to time I think I get the gout, I have never been to see any one. I do not eat any pork now and very few cold cuts. For the last year or so I have not had it. I have been eating a lot of tomatos from my garden. When I woke up friday my foot and big toe were swelled up and had a lot of pain. anyway a time back I pm someone here about baking soda as a buffer just as curiousity. She put me on to a great link. From that link I found a page about the gout and baking soda. So I took some it worked immediately, it was crazy fast. I would have never thought

rode my bike to work

threw seaf - 11throws

the crossfit girl text me saing she had a workout she wanted to try from a magazine. I said ok with out looking at it. it sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it had a bunch of made up exercises. The way it was set up would have been ok, if we would have used regular every day exercises, but being a women she would not hear that. The workout lasted 15 minutes. To go over the exercises took about an hour, and then when we did the workout they were still messed up. I will not log what we did

More about the fishing I did. On the way back down I park the kayak on the side at the top and bottom of the rapids and wade fish them hard, hour or two hard. I stiil use the strike king bitsy tubes. With a tube hook or on a carolina rig.

I found this funny but I am mean. A super big fat guy came down river wile I was wading. He had a very very nice new sit on top. That looked like it was about to sink. We said a few words and the last thing he said was I hope I make it through this rapid, I said you are going to bottom out. I thought he would bottom out at the top of the rapid but he got stuck at the at the bottom where it drops off. he got stuck in the ankle deep water and it flipped him off into waist deep water. As soon as he flipped off the kayak shot out and threw his crap every where his cooler opened. it was so funny. He was yelling I had to tell him to stand up. A guy he was with tried to paddle over to him before he was clear of the rapid and he got stuck. He had sit inside it tipped and filled with water. He got out, freed it and instead of pulling it over to the side to get the water out, he plulled it to the end of the rapid and got back in. he sank it! It took him, and the kids and the two women they were with to get it over to the side and dump it out. I came down to help but they acted like they did not want any so I went back to fishing. The fat guy never helped he was trying to get his food and drinks back.

In rl no one cares about my fishing, throwing, or lifting. I found this log to be a fun way to talk about it without boring anyone.

I have put my name out there attached to grip junky and to this place a few times in the past. Having my log called The BIg Lick Strength Emporium attaches this to me in rl, Roanoke is small place. My thoughts were that I am a nobody who cares, I did not think outside of a few people here and some throwing friends anyone read this thing. The other day I said something in this log about the crossfit girl it was vent. I am sorry I said it. she is the best training parnner I have had. She has said nothing to me about it, she told a friend that someone pointed the post out to her.

It is not like I say bad things all the time, but I just can not get over that someone in rl would point out what was a vent. I am not even comfortable with the few trolls I have done here in the last few weeks now.

So with all that said this log and me as grip junky are done.

No fucking way buddy! I enjoy your log as do a bunch here. Its excellent and all looks fun.

And that fishing story? I read it out loud to my family and they laughed so hard !

My Uncle just ripped the back end off of his bass boat in Canada last week. Goofing around at speed and the motor hit a granite outcropping at low water. Wish it was on video.

You have a good log, dont let 1 setback kill it please.

Your only mistake was not telling her horrible that workout was to her face after it was done. She probably hadn't said anything because she A. thought the workout sucked too or B. She doesn't get worked up over little shit which would make her an exceptional young lady.

I'd recommend just changing you handle and starting a new log.

I agree with TOM. Your's is one of the logs I like to keep up with. I understand your apprehension but just watch your p's and q's if there is RL complications that could occur. I have come to the conclusion that outside of a few trollings, I just say here only what I would say in RL. Not as much fun as letting my Id run amok but still allows me to be here.

I am sorry about the boat, but I would have loved to have seen it happen.

Thanks for nice things you all said. I am going to go with a new log and name.

I really wish you'd reconsider because you are an important part of IGx.

I wish you would reconsider as well, who gives a fuck what others think, as the main page says "Free speech is not for pussies!"

Thanks for the nice thoughts. I am going post under a new name, just the way it has to be.

Someone went out of their way to point a post of mine out. Billy, you know my nephews that live with me, what do you think they would think of some of the threads on here? What if someone went out of their way to point them out to them. I did not think about it till now. They know I go by grip junky in other places, I do not post on those threads but they would know it was me on here.
