Four years since I quit smoking; Shoulder; Garbage disposals.

October 31st is a day I will always remember with pride. Four years ago on this day I quit smoking forever. It was probably one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I was a very heavy smoker and always smoked at least two packs every day, but I was smoking three packs per day by the time I quit. I’d buy a carton on Monday morning, and on Wednesday evening I’d have to… [Read more]

Shoulder pain; Become The Journey special offer.

My left shoulder is still bothering me this morning, but it’s not so bad that I’m going to skip my workout. I’m concerned about my continuing shoulder problems, so I think I’m going to try the Gua Sha treatment I mentioned a few days ago. At least Gua Sha won’t prevent me from lifting like surgery would. Jeremy Likness is running a Halloween special that you won’t want to miss out on: He’s giving away… [Read more]

My pager went off a lot last night.

My pager went off 3 times last night, so I’m a little tired and a lot cranky. I don’t feel much like writing this morning so I’m just going to go work out and finish out the work week. I hope you have a great Friday!

Gua Sha; Leg day.

I received an interesting email this week about my shoulder problems. The person who emailed me was nailed from behind by a car moving at 45 MPH while he was sitting at a stoplight. He had a lot of pain in his left shoulder that went on for many months. A friend of his suggested that he try acupuncture before the usual treatments, which he did with no results. He also tried another technique (which… [Read more]

JSF merchandise update; Extra sleep, again.

Some of you have emailed me asking about the status of the JSF merchandise. I took last weekend off in an effort to preserve what’s left of my sanity, but I should have some time this weekend to finish up the product designs. I’m going to order samples of everything to make sure the quality is acceptable, and then I’ll open the store for business. I slept in again this morning and I’m glad that… [Read more]

Extra sleep/running late – short update.

I slept in for an extra 45 minutes this morning and it felt great! Of course now I’m running very late, and I’ve still got to get my back/biceps/traps workout in before work. Sorry for the short update… 🙂

Sleep returns; My upper body is growing, but so is my waistline!

I’ve been sleeping much better for the past few days. Of course my pager has awaken me a few times, but getting back to sleep has been much easier. It’s a good thing, because the lack of sleep was really starting to have a profound effect on me. I just don’t function very well without a halfway decent night of rest. A trick I’ve been using to get back to sleep is focusing on a… [Read more]

Very sore today; Shoulders are doing good after yesterday’s workout.

There’s nothing like the DOMS one feels after a week off from lifting (excluding those who are just starting out – that’s a whole other level of soreness). My workout went great yesterday. My shoulders hurt a little while I was working out, but they held in there. Today I don’t have any major shoulder pain like I did after my last upper body workout, so that’s a HUGE relief for me. I’m off to… [Read more]

So I had that cheat meal…; This morning’s workout; Tired.

So much for postponing last night’s cheat meal: I decided to go ahead and have pizza and 2 beers. Hey, I need the carbs for this morning’s workout! 😉 Speaking of this morning’s workout, I’m a little nervous about it. I’m going to back off a little on the amount of weight I would normally use because of the pain I was feeling after my last pecs/delts/triceps workout. It was weird feeling pain in my… [Read more]

No cheat meal tonight; 2nd half of bulking program starting; Donation upgrades.

I’ll be postponing my normal Friday night cheat meal until Sunday night: Lisa’s parents are coming over on Sunday and we’re going to order pizza and watch a DVD. I think tonight I’m just going to throw some shrimp on the grill – I might as well cook out and take advantage of one of the last remaining days of the year with sunlight at the dinner hour. Daylight Savings Time is almost over for… [Read more]
