The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Thanks Everyone!!!

    Mom made it through her surgery OK today. It took about 8 hrs from start to finsh and the Doc said everything took pretty good.

    He did tell us her heart was pretty weak and they are hoping the new valve will help to strengthen it but everything else looked good and they even rerouted the electrical route of her heart.

    That just amazes me that they can even reroute the body's own electric route. Medical Science is just Crazy.

    Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers!

    Wolfy!!!

    I'm glad it went well. I know how stressful things like this can be. Almost exactly 7 years ago, my Mom had surgery where they tried to remove her glioblastoma multiforme ( ie a type of brain cancer ).

    Anyway, my point was that I can relate.

    My prayers are with your Mom, you and your family.
