Yesterday, it was another long day in the surgery waiting room at Loyola. House was having surgery to repair the neurostimulator lead that wasn't working in his back. The surgery started 2 hours late. After it started, it was 3 hours until House got to the recovery room. Bino and I spent our time in the waiting room reading and on our laptops. It gave me an opportunity to read the books that I had gotten. Surgery went really good and we brought House home last night. He did get some sleep and today things are going well.

After getting House in bed, I began finalizing my Iron training. I am using Be Iron Fit by Don Fink. Being the nerd that I am, I got a binder and put all the weeks in spread sheets and organized the 30 weeks of training. It begins in 4 weeks. It is color coded and everything.
Now the plan is written. The binder is made and in 4 weeks it begins. The journey to Iron.
Waddling and making more notes..............

Good to hear the surgery went well!!

I wish I could see my entire iron training program at once but my coach is only giving me 1-2 weeks at a time. Glad to hear you have one picked out!

Oh, those long hours in the waiting room...and the repair of the lead... praying this time it is right. You guys are really hanging in there.

I LOVE your system...being a "systems" guy myself, that stuff is really cool.

The binder is a big step....my plan is currently all over the floor next to my bed. I really need to follow your idea and get it all into a binder...some day.!

Glad House is out of surgery and home!
Best to him and your training plan!

Glad he is doing okay. That's a lot of stress for the whole family, and then you are on your iron journey besides. One more hurdle to work around, but it will just make you more organized and determined.
