2005: What I Have Learned

I’ve learned that if I bitch enough my wife will shave my back, I know it’s gross, but she loves me.

Shaving the head is easier when done in the shower.

I’ve also learned, that a two year old walking between your legs while your trying to kiss the wife and be romantic can spoil the mood.

Nothing can prevent pre-ejaculation,( note sexual misfire), like a two year old screaming for mommy at 10 o’clock at night.

Ha ha, yeah the 2 year old is nature’s cock block. And mine also splits us apart during our kisses. He says “My Mommy.”

  1. Rice is the best carb source for me. No bloating. No farts. Cheap. No allergenic reactions.

  2. Real estate is a really expensive investment and does not have that big a return on investment when you factor in renunciation costs, i.e. the cash down generates no income until the mortage is clear.

  3. I sleep better when I have no protein at dinner time.

  4. Art De Vany is the man … again.

I’ve learned:

I’m stronger than I think I am.

Standing up straight is much easier when you have the muscles to do it.

Health = (Sleep plus Exercise plus Protein) minus Junk Food.

Supplements are worthwhile only if you are working hard in the gym.

Sometimes, it’s the exercises I don’t do that make the difference.

Landing after plyometric pushups hurts on a hard wood floor.

There is nowhere to carry an iPod that works through an entire total body workout.

I can’t change most of me, but I can still change a lot of me.

I cannot do a back handspring drunk.

My shoulders are possibly the most unflexible i’ve ever seen on anyone.

Chapstick and handlotion during wintertime are indispensable.

I need to get stronger.

I need to get bigger.

Naps ARE wonderful (good one Nate).

It’s close to impossible to gain weight during wrestling season.

50 is not really that old when you’re in better shape than most that are under 50, and
High Scholl girls follow you around in the gym.

Snatches are ok but, they make my back hurt.

Still No Proof that Gay Marriage is wrong. Sorry ZEB!

The squat rack is not for bicep curls.

T-Nation has all of my favorite writers, articles.

1-AD causes pimples.

John Berardi, Ph.D. : I wish he could be in my kitchen serving great meals every day!

Fat T man’s posting “Should I Bulk or Cut?” was the funniest article of the year!!

T-Nation is the best resources for Bodybuilding. I would be very disappointed if it were to disappear.

T-Nations Members are some of the most intelligent, interesting and “buffed” people of the world.

I should get out of the USA more often. It helps me appreciate how stupid Americans are with
Regard to health and politics.

I’ve learned that every year around Christmas time I get entirely too wasted with all of my friends who are home on vacation and have entirely too much sex with different partners.

Also, there is about a two week delay between what I put into my body and what will be a visible result.

Ha ha ha, is that a positive reflection or a guilty confession?

I have learned

  1. Being lazy makes you fat

  2. Being fat makes you depressed

  3. Eating right and exercising takes care of 1 & 2

  4. The only thing standing between me and my goals is me.

  5. I make absolutely no sense and repeat myself when I am drunk.

  6. Drinking lots of water makes your body feel better

  7. I have the bladder of a small child.

  8. Life is about Choices. Period.

  9. One mistake is NOT a good reason to quit.

  10. Loved ones die too soon, whether they are 27 or 87. It is too soon or not long enough depending how you look at it. Love them, call them and appreciate them. Use kind words always and never be too proud to say you are sorry. You will never know when they will leave you and it will make YOU feel better to know that you were always there and always kind. Sorry, it has been a rough year. Our family has nick named it the year of death, that about sums it up.

I actually don’t fully shave my head yet – I use a clippers with no guard, so I only need to do it twice a week.

Even so, ever since I upped the intensity and gained some muscle mass in my upper body, I’ve found it a little more awkward to shave my own head.

I need to go find a woman to do it for me.

Yes, having your woman do it for you is WAY easier. Plus there isn’t a chance of that little patch you forget because you missed it in the mirror.[/quote]

Just don’t ask her to shave your balls.

Hmmmm…probably won’t happen. I totally trust her, but no clippers, razors, or scissors are allowed around there. Can’t be too careful.

This year I

  1. Discoverd T-Nation

  2. Learned that I spend too much time on this site and not enough time sleeping.

  3. I never ate enough, thats why I never weighed over 150Lbs

  4. Learned how to lift and eat correctly and actually gain size.

  5. Learned to talk to more girls and not sit in on weekends

  6. I didnt go out enough

  7. I looked at too much porn.

  8. I drank too much St.Ides

Wasnt as good of a year as I would have liked it to be, but I’m expecting this one to be much better. Alot better.

I think it’s a bit of guilty pleasure…some of the chicks I’ve boned this break I’ve had positive reflections about, while there is one that I would have to term “guilty confession.”

  1. No matter which road you take, there is always someone there to tell you that you took the wrong one.

  2. The same folks never seem to go anywhere or do anything except to criticize others.

  3. If you quit listening to them, you start to see progress.

  4. There is no such thing as roid rage.

  5. I look really good carrying an extra 27 pounds of muscle.

  6. Chicks dig me.

  7. My wife was unaware of the chicks.

  8. A woman can get you in a rear naked choke and have you tapping out really really quick if she has been watching UFC and she’s pissed about the chicks.

  1. I love my wife
  2. Micellar casein = Good stuff
  3. 5 reps x 5 sets = GAINS
  4. Mediocrity is rampant
  5. A little kindness goes a long way

Rainjack I have to agree on the last one you mentioned.

I outweigh my wife by 100 pounds but it’s hard to defend yourself when your laughing your ass off.

  1. chicks like buffed up guys
  2. Buffed up guys like chicks
  3. Pregnant wives do not like chicks
  4. Especially when chicks are hitting on pregnant wive’s buffed up guy.

Vegita, this is your alternate screen name, right?

RJ you crack me up I swear. Gotta watch the wifey’s jealous streak. They seem to get all clingy and possessive when they see other chicks diggin their man.

I’ll second that one. Don’t think I’d do it myself anyway, what about razor burn, or ingrown hairs? Fuck that.

  1. T-Nation rocks.
  2. I was eating half the calories I need.
  3. Legs 2 x week is awesome.
  4. Just because someone says you’re doing it wrong doesn’t mean the past three years and 40 pounds of muscle growth is worthless. In other words - do what’s right for YOU!
  5. Arizona + motorcycle = Heaven
  1. 2006 is going to be a great year.

  2. I need to to deadlift, squat, and bench in every program I do.

  3. Berardi is THE MAN

  4. So is CW

  5. I tend to ramble when I tell stories (especially when I am intoxicated)

  6. I need more sleep

  7. If I work hard now, the rewards will come sooner or later.

  8. I should not talk politics with people in Texas

  9. George Bush doesn’t care about black people (thanks Kanye)

  10. Living in a big city is not as great as I thought it would be.

  11. I love to see new places, but i hate to travel to get there.

  12. T-Nation is the best website I have ever been too.

  13. Biotest has the best supplements I have ever used.

  14. I need to choose a body comp goal and stick to it.

  15. Living closer to my family and friends would be really cool (even if it means I have to deal with the winter in the midwest again)

  16. I will never have time to do all the things I want to do.

  17. Reading books is a great way to spend time

  18. I need to approach girls more often
