last workout before surgery

Yep, going under the knife again tomorrow morning. This time it's to have my hernia repaired for the third and final time. The surgeon is going to do it laporscopically so it shouldn't be too evasive. The patch is going to be huge and made my BF Goodrich. Hell, if you were to look at my gut from the inside out it would probably resemble a quilt. Just kidding about the BF Goodrich thing.

Today I hit some arms and back.

Overhead Tri Ext w/ez curl bar

I went to the Arnold this weekend. My brother Matt and good friend Troy come down from Syracuse every year to check it out. It gives them a reason to get away from their sweethearts so we can hang out for a bit, since I see them only once or twice a year. I had a great time but I must admit, I missed seeing a lot of the powerlifters that would normally be around if the WPO were still there. I did run into Becca Swanson, Matt Smith and Gene Rychelk who commented on how slim I looked. He must not have seen the pic of my diastisis. Well, when ever someone tells me that I'm 'looking good' or how 'slim or trim' I look, I feels it's a sure sign that I look like a puke and need to start training a bit harder. When I get over this surgery and get my wife friggin' pregnant, believe me, I'll be back at it harder than ever.
