A bit of an Update…

Just to keep everybody informed… I’m done with ALL potential treatments. For two weeks now I wake in my own bed and don’t have to go to a Hospital daily for something or another.

I feel good, my hair is starting to grow back, the only side-effect is nerves in my feet not quite right. I won’t find out about the results until the 25th of April. The options are:

  • Remission
  • Alien Trump gone but a new Alien has arrived
  • Alien Trump is still there and needs further treatment
    • supposedly the only recourse is EXTREME CHEMO
      • I suspect I will decline this and just try to live the rest of my life

I would like all of you to now sit down….

  • I have been exercising for ten straight days, so far.   I found myself extremely weak after all the treatments. So, the week after I had the last treatment I started with cycling, dumbells and a bit of Ab-Training – 30 to 45 minutes daily.
  • Hope to get onto the Octane Cross Trainer, Yoga and more Ab-Training when I get back to UK from…

We leave for Spain on Tuesday, (FYI – the photo is a picture of me on my first trip abroad to the same area of Spain – Andulucia, that I visited in 1972) spending a couple days in San Sebastian (with a Basque friend trying to convince me that the region is the best in Spain.) We then motor to Madrid for a day (a bit of business with one of my Hobbies). Ending near Ronda in Andulucia. We’re there until the end of March when we spend a week on the Atlantic coast in Zahara de los Atunes – getting back in UK a couple days before Brexit (if it happens.) I plan on continuing the exercise EVERY DAY (with the possible exception of the Ferry to Spain which might not have a gym – if it does, I’m there…

I will NOT be in San Diego for IHRSA – there is a chance that I will be at FIBO in April.

Other than that I will not be travelling until after I find out what the results are. My mental attitude is: I AM IN FULL REMISSION! I am not accepting (mentally) any other option.

So my thanks to all of you who have supported my journey! You know who you are…

I will post a couple photos of me in my Gym and my routines in Spain for you sceptics. I’ve discovered a new motivation to exercise – FEAR OF DEATH. Pretty strong motivation – to prolong your life.

Still planning on my last EU Presentation in July at the One Convention (Rome to Barcelona) and my final presentation with the Virtual RoadShow at the ICAA Convention in October (Orlando.)

Book coming, Podcast coming and who knows what else Retirement will bring?

  2. Have a wonderful time in Spain. I’m sure a change of scenery, better weather, fabulous Pinxos in SAN Sebastian and no Brexit bollocks will be a great tonic! All the best. Jonathan.
