    Had a well marbled ribeye and shared a Sidney's Sinful Sundae (Outback). Good stuff.

    Going to do 1/2 P90x chest & back now. Hope I don't vomit.

    Another free weight session today. Finally lost a 'few' pounds. Man those 3 or 4 were sticking around for weeks!

    I'd say I'd like to be about 8 pounds lighter than my current number. At this rate that might not happen till November! lol!

    In the 'windy' city for a week. Some laps in the pool--maybe a dozen. I'm not much of a swimmer. Tomorrow we'll bike along the lake and maybe do some weights.

    I've exercised every day since my last post in this thread (About a month ago). It was amazing because I went away for two weeks on vacation and came back healthier - that NEVER happens to me :) I am running between 2 and 2.75 miles each day and continuing doing weights. Anyone have any suggested websites for weight lifting? I do bench press, curls, etc. but wanted to see if I could find something to focjus on lower back and ab area. I am clueless. Thanks,

    LoL! I was in the midst of a Chow Yun Fat marathon when I came up with that moniker. Honestly, I still have a small bit of the middle age spread but it's disappearing although the rest of me is shrinking even faster. I'll get there but it'll take time and committment to eating right (80%), sleeping (10%, my weak point), and exercise (10%). We can argue those ratios all day but those numbers seem right for me.

    Currently, I'm happy with how things are going especially since it no longer feels like a chore. I'm not so hardcore anymore and I'm a lot more flexible with my workout and more forgiving if I don't do everything exactly as planned.

    I prefer the "Over Age 35" section.
    I visit that site from time to time but haven't been by in awhile but they have useful information.

    Oh, forgot to mention, deadlifts will rock your lower back and ab area. Just ease into it if you have back problems and take more time than you think you need. You could start by doing Supermans.

    Yep, deadlifts are a great workout but you really have to watch if you have lower back problems. This is also an issue when working out your abs since your lower back will have to come into play too.

    Abs was an area I had been neglecting for a while. I used to do only two ab lifts a week. Well, when I noticed I couldn't pull my legs straight out perpindicular to my body (let alone hold it there), I bumped my ab workouts to twice a week, three to four exercises a day. I don't have a six (or four) pack as of yet, but I have noticed I big improvement both strength wise and visually in that area. And what I love the most about abs is most exercises don't need to be done at the gym.

    5min walk, ran 2 miles, 5min walk. Temp: 110/Heat Index: 110. Dangerously hot. My Iphone and Polar watch were very warm to the touch. To me, and remember that I've been running all summer, this borders on brutally hot. If you haven't been out there when it was 103-106, stay home.

    My avg HR on this type of run is 119. Today, it was 139. Same slow effort but my heart is beating faster trying to cool me down. Keep in mind that I'm wearing a Mizuno Running Singlet, Nike Dri-Fit shorts, four 8oz flask of water (with ice ), walnuts (something salty that doesn't bother my stomach), Nike Dri-Fit cap (only when the sun is directly pummeling me), and sunglasses. I also cut my run down by half a mile yet I'm still taking a beating.

    You all who are or were humping the sand in some foreign land wearing desert fatigues, body armour, 100+ lbs of gear, and an M-16/SAW/BAR, I salute you.

    Ran 2.5 miles this morning. I ran at 5AM and it was still unbelievably hot. Indiana is not supposed to get hot.

    The workout from 8/3 left me toasty toast and I'm finally well rested enough to resume.

    Ran 3 miles yesterday for the first time in a long time.

    Also had a talk with someone that made a lot of sense. He said he didn't put anything in his mouth (Food wise at least) after 5:00 p.m. If you go to bed starving, you always wake up and eat anyway, so no problems. Well, For the last 3 days I haven't had one snack other than a handful of cashews, and nothing to eat or drink, except water, after 5:00 p.m. It's actually easier than I thought it would be. The exercise is really helping my hunger.

    I have 3 now ;)

    I started with regular bikes and I still have 4 or 5 regular bikes but I hate just sitting on my ass. The Street Strider burns 1500 calories an hour. Every 2.5 hours I burn a pound of fat!

    http://www.fitnessgiant.com/st30olyw...l#.URz0haUsmSo

    I am getting fat. I have not lifted since high school. Time to get my SBM back on. Target weight 265/9% fat. I have no idea of my fat content other than too much lol. Approaching the the 300 mark, 6'4"-I am not obese but feeling my age and I do not like it!. Last MTB trip I took I lost 25.5 lbs in 13 days422 miles and over 45,000 ft of combined elevation change. (estimate but close traveling from 1300 ft to 6500 ft 6 times with numerous trips and a few overnighter's from base camp to upper elevation lakes. It was 15 miles uphill lol to the restaurant for breakfast. Hell of a good time.

    Anyway, Let the fat fly!

    What did you weigh in H.S.? Because that is a pretty good barometer of where you should be even now. I hate to say it but I've been creeping up in weight. Time for another year in CHINA! lol

    Even at 6'4" 265 is too HEAVY unless you're built like Lou Ferrigno! Or have a Dinosaur size FRAME!

    I'm seriously out of shape myself, but only aerobically. I lift weights a couple of times a week but my weight is still getting up there. Part of that is related to the fact that I had my left Achilles surgically repaired last May and have still not fully recovered. I have about 60-65 percent of the strength I should on that calf and about the same size difference with the right (about a 1/3 or more less mass). I've been told 18-24 months is more like complete recovery time!

    But at least I am limping a LOT less these days!

    I started feeling that way over a year ago. First I started to control my diet. Then started running and biking a minimum of every other day. Plus lifting weights when I can. Lost over 20 lbs and the body is close to where I was at in HS. I haven't felt this good in over 20 years. As my wife would say "It's a lifestyle" that requires persistence and commitment.

    I'm 6'5", in 2009 I was 409, Had gastric bypass surgery, lost 141lbs, got down to 268. When I was 18 I was 225, When I was 26 I was 245.

    Past 1.5 years I've been working 80+ hours a week, bad food choices and no exercise brought me back up to 350 on 1/12/2013. I started a diet, this morning I'm 328, 32lbs off in 2.5 months. Need to get back to 275. Would love to see 250.

    Just Went Striding and Burned 1900 Calories.

    I've been restoring my old road bike for a couple of months now, and she's done. I got up this morning, aired up the tires with my new fangled Co2 pump, lubed the chain and free freewheel, and now I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit before I take her out for a shake out ride.

    I'm planning on riding 25 miles as long as I don't find a problem.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.
