Riding out the perverbial rollercoaster here... Just finished my 3rd knee injection... Often discouraged but struggling to stay positive and move forward... NEVER thought I would be dealing with all this at 43,,, I know MANY others struggling so much more and understand that and always appreciate what I got... But I can't help but think of the millions of those able bodied poeple out there not living to their potentioal, not helping others, not enjoying life... Then there is me... Wanting it all, struggling to walk... Just don't get it...

What’s going on in Straus land? Recently been to NYC. Bad knee news from Doc. Better news from PT. Just had MRI this morning. Waiting on results. Have met with local PT to start working with them again. Lots of pain. Tons of worry. Bummed more than ever. Just need a direction. Not knowing shit is driving me FU#%ING Crazy!!! Who knows. One day at a time right now!!! 🍻

Latest Straus update: CONFUSED!!! That about sums it up. Good days followed by bad days for no reason. Feeling impatient. Feeling lazy!!! (Ironically typing this during gym warm up). Talking to others figuring out what I can afford to do moving forward both financially, and due to limited time. At 43 many feel they have grown up. Did what they wanted. Accomplished what they wanted to accomplish. For me I am just getting started. My drive in life is to be a badass acti...ve loving helping father. I am not only not wanting to throw in the towel. I want to ramp it the fuck up!!! Sorry for language but this is all starting to get to my head. This and everything else I have piling on at the moment. What lies around the next corner tomorrow. Who knows??? Every day is a worry. But I haven’t quit. And I don’t plan to. Enjoy your weekend all. And if you get to live even a day a week without pain. Be glad. It’s been months. And I see no end soon.

Lately I have been reading a lot!!! And by a lot I mean almost any chance I can. Been going through books like clean underwear. Lol. I never read much in school. Well let’s be REAL here. I NEVER read in school. Lately it seems to be an outlet. A way to get away from the voices in my head. All the negative I may be dealing with. It’s funny in a way what others may THINK they know about you and really have no clue. I just finished a great book Fitness Confidential by ...Vinnie Tortorich. It’s a MUST read if you are in to health and better yet endurance events. What an awesome story of triumph. Now I am moving on to FEARLESS. A story of a Navy Seal giving the ultimate price for his country, family, world that he lives in. I can’t wait to get into this one!!! All 350 pages of it!!! Reading 📖 is like a kickass view at the end of a long hard Mountain climb. You have to earn it!!! Have a good weekend all!!! - Straus

Happy Sunday all!!! Another “thoughts from the spin bike” session. Lol. Man I HATE riding indoors!!! But hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get where your trying to go!!! A few things going on in SP land!!! First is ever since my post a week or so ago about how BAD my knee had been doing it has now taken a turn for the BETTER!!! Trying to pinpoint why I am not 100% sure. I know however I have been greatly cutting sugar and grains out of my diet and drinking Bone Broth ...on a daily basis... Coincidence? I doubt it. Just staying focused on putting healthy nutrient dense food in my body!!! Hitting gym regularly and working hard towards some summertime fun goals with family!!! Had a consult with an older couple one of whom I used to train years ago. We talked about simple things they could do utilizing their gym set up in facility as well as talking about Isagenix to get some nutrient dense superfood in their system. It’s just as important in your older years as it is when your younger. It went well and was nice to stand in a gym and help someone in that manner again. Stay tuned for more on that in the future!!! Go kick some ass all. Don’t let this world kick yours!!! - Straus out!!!

Real quick follow up: As I have been slowly pulling my head out of my ass in 2018 I have been thanking those who backed what I was trying to do last summer before my body blew apart and I forgot a BIG part of that... Mark Walter of CoreFit Chiropractic was a HUGE help in my great start to 2017. So please, if your looking for a Chiropractor who not only knows their stuff, but gets involved in helping others please give him a shout. Along with his wife Danielle Walter across the hall running Couture Aesthetics!!! 2 great people. 2 great businesses!!! Again Mark, Thank You for all you did!!!

Ya gotta take the good with the bad. After weeks of waiting for my 2 new books since Barnes lost the first order they finally came!!! Not only did they come, but I got 2 boxes both with both books in them. Lol. So now I have a copy to share!!!! Big thanks to the Livethefuel podcast for all the positive influence in 2017!!! Through the podcast I have started following both of these authors and learned much. I also found many other positive people to learn from!!! About to get a dose of Vinnie Tortorich for lunch. Looking forward to Karen Putz, Author and Passion Mentor ‘s book as well!!! Stay tuned for follow ups on both!!!
