I’m going to go ahead and do a back/bicep weight training workout this morning and see how my shoulder does. Surprisingly it feels pretty good even after last Thursday’s pec/tri/delt test workout. I wonder if all that therapy really did help? I’ll know more after I see my orthopedic doctor tomorrow. It sure would be nice to avoid surgery, but I’m not going to get my hopes up yet. Well, I’m off to lift some… [Read more]

Me and Lisa spent all day yesterday driving around in the new car with the top down. Now we both have a little bit of a farmer’s sunburn. We stopped off at Lisa’s parents’ house and I took a few pictures of the S2000 while we were there. I’ve got a crazy work day ahead, and a dentist appointment to top everything else off. Oh well, at least I’ll have fun driving there.

There’s an S2000 in my garage.
After a long, but very fun & exciting day of test driving cars, I finally decided on the S2000. I’ll try to post some pictures later today if I can slow down long enough to snap a few shots. I have to resist the overwhelming urge to put the top down and go for a sunrise drive to the coast because there is a lot of yard work to be done this morning. I’m going… [Read more]

So sore; Car shopping.
I’m even more sore from Thursday’s (perhaps ill-advised) upper body workout today than I was yesterday. My shoulder feels no worse than it normally does, so maybe doing the workout was not such a bad idea after all. I have no idea when or if I’ll be having surgery, but it may be at least a month because I can’t let the surgery or the recovery interfere with our vacation which is in less than… [Read more]

I did a pecs/delts/triceps workout last night.
Last night I was sitting around thinking about how bad it sucks that I still have shoulder pain after all the treatment I’ve undergone over the last 6 or 7 months. I also couldn’t stop thinking about how badly I wanted to do an upper body workout. Facing almost certain surgery, I finally said to myself “Oh, to hell with it. If they have to cut me to fix my shoulder, then what have I… [Read more]

Arthroscopic surgery imminent?
Just a quick “hello” before I head out the door for my early morning physical therapy. I’m going back to my orthopedic doctor on Wednesday, June 16. Unless a miracle happens before that time, I expect I’ll be discussing arthroscopic surgery with him. So be it – I just want the shoulder fixed so I can start lifting again!

First ab workout in six weeks; New site features.
I’m all excited because this morning I get to do my first ab workout since my hernia operation six weeks ago!

As you can see from the welcome message above, this site now knows you by your forum username (if you are a registered member and you are still being called a… [Read more]

My hernia ordeal is finally over; Last week of shoulder physical therapy.
I saw my surgeon yesterday and, as expected, was given the go-ahead to resume weight training and ab workouts on Monday, June 14th! I’m glad the whole hernia ordeal is finally behind me. Unfortunately I’m still dealing with my shoulder injury, but the physical therapy seems to be helping (albeit slowly). I only have one more week of physical therapy left before I see my orthopedic doctor again, and I’m afraid he’s going to tell… [Read more]

Tough day ahead; Follow-up on hernia surgery.
Work issues this morning. I’m glad I already got my cardio in because today is going to be a long one, and it starts right now. I do have to go to my surgeon this afternoon for my (almost) 6-week follow up on my hernia operation. Hopefully I’ll get the “all clear” to start lifting weights and this Thursday will be leg day again!

New web site is a success; First new pictures in almost 6 weeks.
To say that the new site has been well received would be quite an understatement! So far I’ve heard nothing but positive comments, and there’s only been a couple reports of very minor technical issues. Considering how much has changed, that’s pretty amazing. If you or your company is in need of professional web site design services and/or an ultra-powerful & flexible Content Management System (CMS), please keep the pros at Hipercom in mind.
