Yesterday was both a good day and a bad day at the gym. The good... I bench pressed 100 pounds. This was with a barbell, not the machine. And my chest is feeling it right now. But the bad part was that I felt increasingly ill through out my workout. I think the combination of breakfast cereal, with an Omega 3 fish oil pill, and a pre-workout pear, didn't sit well in my stomach. My trainer described me as having turned very pale. We ended up cutting the session a bit short as a result.

My new workout day rule is "no fish oil pill within four hours prior to working out, and no eating within one hour prior to working out."

And I need to get back into doing good cardio every day. It just felt like my endurance was way down at the gym yesterday, even though I got a really good nights sleep.

Bonus Workout: Thankfully my energy levels and endurance were back up at the end of the day. I managed to rake the front yard last night before the rain came. That was actually a nice little workout. Of course, I managed to scrape off a layer of skin on my left hand on the top side at the base of my thumb. The strange thing was that I didn't feel it until I saw it. It was like "Hey... my hand feels a little weird. Look, I'm missing a patch of skin on my thumb. Oh, and now it hurts."

I'm hoping to have some time tonight to finish my front spring pickup. There are still some leaves and left over plant material amongst the rocks in the front and north side of the house

Damn lactic acid! I'm sore from my workout yesterday. I'm finally getting back to the gym after taking a very long break. (No, this is not a New Years Resolution kind of thing. It just timed out that way.)

Something Tuesday night caused me to start feeling really nauseous, and I've been feeling queasy off and on since then. This was a really problem while working out yesterday. I've hired a trainer to help me get back on track, but during our session I had to take a 10 minute break to find a quiet place to try and get my stomach to relax. Nothing like doing core exercise while fighting the urge to vomit.

For the past year or so when ever I have stomach issues I seem to fell "aftershocks" for roughly a week after. This didn't used to happen to me. I'm wondering if I should go find some over-the-counter anti-nausea medicine. Or maybe just some Pepto-Bismol.

...that hit me during the night?!?! Oh, wait, it wasn't a truck, it was some kind of food poisoning. Ugh. I woke up around 3am or so with a very sour stomach. Lets just say that soon enough things were moving. Then I tried to get back to bed, but I was so chilled. I was wearing my robe AND Joe's robe in bed, while Joe is laying next to me with no sheet or blanket on him because he was too warm.

Now I'm home with a 100.3 degree fever. Just trying to get comfortable and stay cool.

In the good news though, last night I managed with widdle down my 449 Pride photos to just 76 parade photos, and 62 in the park photos.

Some one must have missed. I found a little [livejournal.com profile] 433 next to the garbage:


One of the really great things about the parade this year was that this was the 10th year of having the giant rainbow and leather pride flags in the parade. The flags were both made by a local man, Carl Gscheidmeier. Reportedly this is, or has been, the largest leather pride flag.

Carl joined us in carrying the flag as we passed the Brass Rail. He was getting refreshments!


He was doing really good until he saw the plaque we presented him with. It reads:
Carl Wm. Gscheidmeier. Thank you for 10 years of flag pride. 1998-2007.


Sadly, before now Carl hadn't really received any recognition of his great contribution to our community. He hadn't even been given a picture of the flags before now.

The big reason that we need to pay tribute to Carl this year is that it is time to retire the two flags. The MN Leather Pride group (a group made of members of many of the different Minnesota leather clubs) are working with the Twin Cities Pride board to raise money to create new flags.

After the parade we all posed for a few last pictures on the flag.


Here's a picture from Saturday when we chatted with Derek Hartley, from the Derek and Romain show on Sirius OutQ (sat. radio, gay channel)


We had the pleasure of chatting with Derek a lot more Saturday night at the Eagle/Bolt. I was going crazy up with Chi Chi LaRue in the dj booth.

And here is a great photo of me with my parents:
