Gym Update: From Strength To Strength

Today’s gym session was very successful, and it offered me the best evidence, so far, of my progress since joining the gym, in 2007.

The weight, or resistance, used in every exercise has been significantly increased, making the exercises more difficult and therefore, I hope, more effective. The most significant single increase has been to the resistance setting for the abdominal toning machine, which has been doubled, to 20 kg.

For the first time ever, today, I was able to get out of my wheelchair to use one of the machines (known as a hand bike) which until now has had to be adjusted so that I can use it while staying in my wheelchair, for safety reasons. Continue Reading

Time To Get Fit: Renewing My Gym Membership Again

I am amazed by how quickly time has passed. Today, I have accepted an invitation to renew my gym membership for another year. I look forward to learning what progress I will continue to make towards greater good health, mobility, and fitness.

Having completed all the necessary paperwork, my workout has also been updated.

As always, I would like to thank everyone who continues to enable and inspire me to improve my fitness.

To Vaccinate Or To Stay Healthy

Anyone who heard yesterday’s edition of The Power Hour will know that I have made a firm, personal, decision not to accept the swine flu vaccination. Although my reasons are a matter of personal choice, I believe that they are based upon logic:

  • My Serrapeptase Adventure has freed me from the ‘toxic cocktail’ of prescription medication, so it makes little sense to me to accept a vaccination that is not compulsory
  • I am not convinced that the risk of swine flu is significant enough, to merit unnecessary medical intervention
  • I am concerned about the potentially negative impact of some of the individual ingredients, listed in the vaccines offered in the UK
  • I am most concerned that it will not be possible to determine the long-term effects of this vaccination until it has been in long-term use, but there are a growing number of reports of adverse reactions among people who have been vaccinated
  • Since I do not have any means to independently evaluate all the available scientific data, I have decided that I will not take a vaccine, the benefits of which are at least as uncertain as the risks

As always, I will continue to be happy to learn, if any conclusive evidence becomes available, but I am as sure as I can be that the choice I must make is to vaccinate or to stay healthy. Continue Reading

The Power Hour: Serrapeptase And The HealthPoint

Today, I had the pleasure of being invited to join The Power Hour, to update the show’s regular listeners with my progress and to introduce new listeners to Serrapeptase and the remarkable story of My Serrapeptase Adventure. Later in our conversation, Joyce Riley and I welcomed Robert Redfern, to discuss the HealthPoint. Robert also answered listener’s questions.

Feeling Fantastic At 40!

Wow! It is July 2009, I made it to my 40th birthday, and I feel fantastic!

In the final few months of 2005, leading up to the beginning of My Serrapeptase Adventure (January 2006), I was surviving on a day-to-day basis, and I was surprised each time I survived another week.

Now, more than halfway through the fourth year of My Serrapeptase Adventure, as I look ahead to my fifth decade of life and beyond, it still amazes me to know that I have a future. I am sure that it will be a future filled with opportunities and challenges. I look forward to continuing to learn from the fantastic people who have enabled and inspired My Serrapeptase Adventure, so far, and to meeting new people in the months and years to come.
