Closing Time

After some long inner battles I decided to close the site down temporarily.. It may or may not be back, I don’t know. I just need to focus my attention on other things at the moment and realign myself to get my mind right and really tackle this weight problem I have.. In the meantime, enjoy the song.

Under the knife, here I come!

Tuesday the day I go under the knife. Its not a major surgery and the procedure takes less than an hour but I’ve never had surgery, never been under anesthesia and never even had blood drawn. Needless to say, even though its such a minor repair I am nervous!


I am expected to be in a sling for 4 weeks :( which is probably going to suck really bad as I have to depend on my left hand to do my work for me :( After 4 weeks in the sling I apparently have to do 3-4 months of physical therapy to regain the strength. From what I heard from people who have had this done is that your shoulder will feel even stronger than before any tears. This is very comforting and exciting at the same time.

This is what I will be training for once I am able to gym again.

After therapy I will begin a new regiment that will include plyometrics, high intensity interval training, and strength training. With this new workout I expect great results towards the end of the summer. I’m not buying new clothes until after my transformation. Even though I’m coming up to a year of working out I have seen pretty good results but not near where I want to be. Baby steps, mental prep and will power will push me there.

Stay Strong!
