Day three: New hope? A false dream?
A friend just tweeted me about a once-a-week workout routine from Strength Science Lab at the University of Florida (http://www.thedenverchannel.com/lifestyle/health/new-1-workout-a-week-routine-maximizes-exercise).
Apparently, the idea behind it is that you can lower what is too heavy to lift. So these machines maximize weight on the way down, minimize it on the way up and provide a super-serous workout.
A once-a-week workout. I could manage that. I wonder where I can get a hold of machines like that in Plattsburgh, though.

Today was an acupuncture day for my son. I love taking him to these. I can almost see part of the headache dissolving on his face.
He comes back to life after these appointments.
It just knocks his headache down a point or two and only for an evening, but that is enough for me to see him — my Ben — the way I remember him being before the headache set in.
Over the next few days, I’d like to bombard him with more efforts to relax his neck and shoulders. (That’s where the pain seems to emanate from.)
I did last week. Acupuncture Thursday; massage Friday; restorative yoga Saturday. And it helped, but only by slight degrees and nothing lasted. Now this weekend, he’s going camping, so I can’t plan anything.
Next week, however? The chiropractor. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he may have a solution.
Those goals again:
