MRI results are in: I’ve been diagnosed with Chronic Tendonitis in my shoulder.

As it turns out, my doctor was working yesterday after all. I heard from him yesterday morning, and I’ve been officially diagnosed with Chronic Tendonitis in my shoulder. I used to have shoulder pain when I was a competitive swimmer, but I never did anything about it. Back then we were always encouraged to work through the pain. The pain wasn’t bad enough to effect my swimming – it just hurt and was more annoying… [Read more]

No MRI results yet…

My doctor has the results of my shoulder MRI, but I guess he didn’t have time to review them yesterday. I called a couple of times and didn’t hear back from him. He’s probably off today (Good Friday), so it will most likely be Monday until I know more about what’s wrong with my shoulder. I’ll post an update in Tuesday’s daily news. I’m going to go do my cardio now and get to work… [Read more]

Shoulder MRI; I have an inguinal hernia.

I went to the doctor yesterday and I definitely have an inguinal hernia. I’ll be meeting with the surgeon hopefully next week to discuss treatment options. As for my shoulder, we talked about it and decided that I should have an MRI done. I’m still experiencing occasional pain and I just shouldn’t be after this amount of time (it’s been 5 months now…) Luckily they were able to get an appointment and insurance approval right… [Read more]

Going to the doctor today – shoulder and hernia.

I’ve got to get my workout in right away because I’m taking part of the day off to go to the doctor. I’m going for a follow-up on my shoulder, and to have him look at my hernia. I’m hoping that I can schedule the hernia operation for sometime next week. I don’t think the recovery period is all that long, but we’ll see. I think a lot of it depends on what method they… [Read more]

Monthly pictures updated; Upper body plans.

My monthly pictures have been updated. I’ve lost 4 pounds of fat this past month, and it really shows in the pictures. Last month at this time I was right on the top edge of 8% body fat (perhaps I was even at 9%), but this month I’m at the bottom of 8%. It’s amazing how much just a few pounds of fat show at sub 10% body fat levels. Even though I’m cut up,… [Read more]

Back to doctor for shoulder follow-up; New web site; Promo video feedback.

I’ll be going back to the doctor this Wednesday for a follow-up on my shoulder. It is still feeling very good, even after doing a lot of lifting and pulling while doing yard work yesterday. I did my 50 pushups this morning for the first time in over a month, and there was no pain at all! Just to be sure I don’t re-injure myself, I may ask for another cortisone shot and rest it… [Read more]

Daylight Savings Time sucks.

I hate the “daylight savings” time change. It takes me forever to get used to it. It throws off my internal clock, when I go to sleep, when I wake up, my meals and steals an hour of my weekend. I wish the whole stupid thing would just go away. Ok, I’m done ranting. I’m running behind (duh!) this morning, so I’m going to make this quick because I have a lot to do today…. [Read more]

April here, Summer is coming; Success stories; Lisa has not smoked in 3 months!

I can’t believe it’s already April! Those of you who started a fitness program back in January (and stuck to it) are no doubt seeing results by now. As Summer draws closer I’m finding more and more “success story” posts on the message board. Many others who have not yet reached their goals have made tremendous progress, and have faithfully maintained their online journals as they close in on their goals. One can’t help but… [Read more]

“Ab-Solved” to be “Tight”; New video of my dogs.

I’ve officially started my “Ab-Solve” and “Tight” program in an effort to lose the last bit of stubborn fat just below my belly button. I have started an online journal (you must be a registered member to access this part of the forum) in which you’ll find a detailed explanation of what I’m trying to accomplish, why I’m taking these two supplements and complete “before” data – including some unflattering close-up photographs of my lower… [Read more]

Shoulder update; Happy with legs, altering workouts to stop building mass.

My shoulder is still feeling pretty good. It was acting up a little last week for no apparent reason, but that went away after a couple of days. I’m going back to the doctor next week for a follow-up, and I’m not going to start lifting again for at least a few more weeks. Even though it’s feeling better I can tell that it’s not ready yet. This time I’m not going to make the… [Read more]
