It's been a while.  when you last saw me, this happened...

the-power-stone-erasing-the-mcu-in-aveng

 

I've mostly stayed the course, but I reinjured my back again and spent all last year trying to get back to healthy.  And the better news is nice drugs that helped me deal with the pain... burnt out my kidneys (kinda stage 3 for those who are familiar with that).  

 

 

Goals:

It's now time to go from this

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

abs work today was good.  2/5 days this week.

Some of the lessor muscles in the glute region are acting up again.  I have rolled them out twice already today, but damn... this hurts.

hit my calories, Macro's were slightly off (I was a little low on Carbs and a little high (+8gr) on fats) but overall not a big deal).

I actually felt good doing deadlifts in todays WOD.  Worked up to 225lbs.

It's funny, I feel good doing cleans at that weight, but Deadlifts always felt wonky.  Today was the first day since I hurt myself (again) last March that I felt great after any kind of deads.

It is always a good day to deadlift. 

Also, I thought I had posted this question already but I hadn't: how ate your kidneys now?

It's a new condition.  The short version is I hurt my back (again) last march.  I took drugs to prevent the pain; those drugs where not nice to my kidneys; I started getting massive headaches through out the year, but I couldn't figure out why, took the same meds to fight the headaches until T-day.  

giphy.gif

2 days after Thanksgiving, I got a massive headache and I was super lethargic.  I contacted my doctor and he diagnosed me with stage 3 CKD.  I've been managing symptoms via nutrition, but apparently, it will never get better.  I've been feeling a lot better and no longer lethargic during WODs or doing routine things like getting out of bed.  

giphy.gif

 

I just learned about reducing sodium, so I'm trying to make sure I'm conscious about my intake.  The nice thing is, for the first time in my married life, my wife is fully engaged in supporting my nutrition habits and not low-key sabotaging me.  

 

I'm now 3 days into being conscious about salt and I feel great.  Brain fog is lifting, I have energy, and no headaches.

My sympathies man. Kidney disease is no joke. I'm a hospital chaplain in a town with a long term diabetes epidemic so I see dialysis patients all the time. I'm more scared of kidney disease than cancer. All that to say I'm in your corner rooting for you to stay on top of the situation.

Yeah, My Creatinine has always been high, cause of higher muscle mass and lots of protein... but the headaches and lathargy was a shot across the bow.
