Thursday, January 17, 2019 - Welcome, guest user!

Work, work, work.

Sorry for all the short and cheesy updates lately. I’m afraid this is going to be another one. Things are really cooking at work and I’ve got a lot of extra stuff that needs to get done before my surgery next week. I’ve got to get to it, work is calling as I’m typing this…

Biding my time; Waist down to 30 inches; Tough week ahead.

With the hernia and the shoulder injury keeping me in check, I feel like I’m just kind of biding my time until my surgery. On one hand it really sucks, but on the other hand it feels good to know that soon I’ll be back at 100%. The doctor said that I should be able to return to lifting about 6 weeks after the surgery, and by then my shoulder should also be ready to… [Read more]

Great “cheat” meal last night!

Lisa and I had fun pigging out last night – we watched a movie and gorged on pizza, wine and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. That’s the first time I’ve had Ben & Jerry’s in over 15 months! It was fantastic. I’m about to go repent on the elliptical: 9 miles today. After that, I have to work. Oh well. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

Surgery moved to the 28th; Shoulder; New site update.

Update/reminder about my upcoming hernia surgery: The operation will take place on Wednesday, April 28. I won’t be able to do any lifting for about six weeks after the surgery, and I won’t even be able to do cardio or drive a car for at least two weeks after the surgery. There seems to be little point in doing daily updates to this site while I am recuperating from my surgery and unable to do… [Read more]

Met with my Orthopedic doctor; Hernia surgery will put me out of action for a bit.

I met with my new orthopedic doctor yesterday and he went over the x-rays and MRI pictures with me. He said they showed all the classic symptoms of someone who has been lifting heavy weights: rotator cuff tendinitis and Impingement syndrome. He feels that it is too early for surgery, and wants to try more aggressive cortisone treatments combined with physical therapy. Yesterday he gave me two injections of Depo-Medrol right into the rotator cuff…. [Read more]

Going to Orthopedic doctor & meeting surgeon for hernia.

Today I have an early morning appointment with my new Orthopedic sports doctor, and am just about to leave the house. Also, later today I’ll be meeting the surgeon who will be performing my hernia operation. It should be an interesting day. I’m hoping to find out from the Orthopedic doctor what kind of treatment I’ll need to get my shoulder back to 100%, and I want to get my hernia operation over with ASAP… [Read more]

Not much time again this morning.

I’m in a rush this morning. I have to go get my X-Rays from my doctor and MRI pictures from the MRI place and get back here in time to workout, eat, shower and get to work. Tomorrow I’m meeting with the Orthopedic doctor in the morning to discuss my shoulder, and then I’m meeting with the general surgeon in the afternoon to discuss my hernia and setup a date for the operation. See ya!

Busy Monday morning.

No time to write this morning – some issues at work popped up and I need to get my workout done right away. If you didn’t check in over the weekend, I received my MRI results on Friday, so check out the Daily News archives if you are interested. Have a great Monday, see you later!

10.2 miles in 50 minutes!

Yesterday morning I decided to try something I’ve never done before for my cardio workout. I wanted to see how fast and how far I could go on the elliptical without worrying about keeping my heart rate in its “aerobic zone”. My goal was to reach 10 miles in 50 minutes or, in other words, run 5-minute miles for 10 miles in a row. I managed to beat that goal and went 10.2 miles in… [Read more]
