    Went to the Chiro again today and he actually bent me about a bit.
    He knew that I had requested a male student cos previously the female ones weren't strong enough. At one point he was really struggling and we both had a laugh about how stiff my back muscles were and how hard he was having to work to try and free me off! He sort of managed it, I think he'll do better next time.
    So it's twice a week now for a while.
    I did ask him about back braces. We are holding off on them now for the moment. But they aren't totally out of the question.
    Painting that feckin Artex ceiling was a pain. In the utility obvs furniture couldn't be moved so i was having to stretch over stuff. Can't use a roller, etc etc. Gave the right shoulder a bit of a workout, but not so stiff now.
    Christ I'm unfit!!:(:(

    Walk, swim and cycle...gently. Start gently and slowly build up over 6-8 mths - post this you'll be a new person ;) [man, not a woman nor transgenderised!!] o_O

    Oh, and yoga...seriously, start a yoga class for fat bastards/unfit duffers/Chinese Takeaway eaters/land rover owners [delete where applicable] yoga really nails inner core fitness:cool:

    eta - if you eat take away food, STOP. It's over priced and full of the lowest grade worse than pig swill food of near unknown origin. Buy fresh and reduce the monthly food bill :)

    he wishes he could for longer. But for some reason he can’t in his own pool:oops::rolleyes:
    But yes swimming is a great body muscular relaxation.

    Cheers mate!
    I've bought a pair of trainers.;)
    I could do this far easier in France, but trying to get over there is currently a pain to say the least. We live on a mountain over there and walking then running up the steepish hill road which goes past our door would be a good start.
    Over the past 3 or 4 years I seem to have injured myself or had a physical problem which has stopped me doing what i want to do and that includes the list of DIY jobs, Wifey's list, obvs.:rolleyes:
    But right now she is actually committed to helping me lose weight, new diet etc starts next week. We think I may be lactose intolerant so we are working on that theory. If that turns out to be true it might go someway to explaining why I CBA so much of the time. I only eat a slice of toast for brekker and one other meal but still struggle to maintain my weight at 4" over where it should be on the waistline.:(:( And I tried dry January last year which resulted in absolutely no change in the waistline.:(
    One of the problems with being away 6 months of the year is that it is difficult to get continuity with any sort of class we might start. I really need a personal trainer but that to me is so "wusssy" I won't entertain it. Sorry to all those on here who have one, or are one!:(:(:(

    SEX!! Wild swinging from the chandelier jumping from the armoire SEX is good for muscle relaxation. There it is @marjon J, we've sorted out @Stanleysteamer health issues.

    @Stanleysteamer , from this day forth to be known as Steaming Stanley the Chandelier Swinger :D:D:D

    Wow! Looks like you've had a few oysters or summat!!!:):):)
    This possibly explains why I was so sylphlike for so much of my life without doing any other form of exercise.
    Better get hold of something/one, and no I am not going into details in case Wifey hacks into this lot. :eek::eek::eek:

    We are actually going to develop a solar heating system. We already have a nearby structure we could put it on the roof of and I've figured out a simple way way of pumping the water round it.
    Just needs doing along with every other feckin thing!:(

    on another tack, I am just watching our recording of Weds Car SOS.
    How not to build a Kit Car/ Rod/custom thing.
    Tis truly shocking how little some people had an idea of how to go about it. :eek::eek::eek:
    (This is before the two watnots got to work on it, or rather "conned" some others into doing it.);)

    Really?
    Never knew that!
    Trust me to find out when I only have one or two rooms left to paint!
    Do you recommend one?
    I'll get one for when we have to do the lounge here! (At least Wifey never ever begrudges money spent on tools!):):)

    One of my mates has just bought one, he painted his house then done one of his neighbours house
    & that paid for all the gear. :) I will find out tomorrow which brand he got, im sure he said it was 200 quid.

    Cheers mate!!:):):)
    I do have a compressor and a paint gun but I have yet to use the gun as it came with a box of kit and I was keeping it for painting cars.
    But I can always get another gun! I just wonder how it would work when trying not spray the ceiling or the door frames etc when doing the walls. Do you have to mask up like you would on a car?
    (I have sprayed cars in the past but I borrowed a mate's kit.):):):)
