This has +Lisa, ofs written all over it.  Actually I'm thinking she ghost wrote it given the artwork... duck hide cover

Injured my shoulder ... again.  Second time in two years, first was rotator cuff and now biceps tendon.  I never realized just how many exercises require shoulder mobility and how difficult it would be to come up with a new workout plan while I wait for this thing to heal.  If anyone has any tips I'd sure love to hear 'em.

Two new personal records this morning - 310lbs deadlift and 770lbs leg press.  I know they're not rock star numbers, but they are so far beyond where I started a year ago it's not even funny.  And hey, I think that's not bad for a skinny guy like me.

Just when you thought this story was over... a reminder to never give up on anyone.

Second day using a pre-workout booster.  I've never tried these before and I was a little nervous about becoming a bug-eyed crazy man (you've all seen the stereotypes).  I'm starting with BSN N.O. Explode - so far only one scoop per day, I'm going to try two scoops after a week or so to see how I tolerate the higher dosage.  So far the experiment is going well.  I'm able to push harder throughout my workouts and am less tired when I'm done than before.  That might be placebo effect, but I won't know for sure for a while.

I'm curious - what do other people use for pre-workout?  Also, I see that I'm supposed to cycle out after so many weeks to prevent building up a tolerance - do you cycle to a different pre-workout supplement or just go without for a few weeks?

What's your Flight Into Egypt moment?  I'm finding myself struggling with this one a lot lately - a whole lot of "yeah I'm coming, just gimme a minute ... or a week ... or a month".  Then again I think in many ways that defines entirely too much of my life.  Those of you not afflicted with procrastinationitis, I envy you.

I'm writing again - consider it part of my (and your, if you should read it;) Lenten penance.  With an indirect shout out (do people still do that?) to +Lisa Josephsdatter even.  We Dominicans and Franciscans do love each other so.

I'm proudly posting this from my Galaxy Tab 10.1 on which I have installed +11796266688853378152210.1. I'm having some problems with the keyboard randomly disappearing while typing but other than that it's working quite well. If only there were 10.2 bits available for this tablet I'd be right up there with +Scott Bilik and +Fr. Cory Sticha.
