Giving tight and inflexible a new meaning.

I have to laugh. I've decided to add yoga to the mix of healthy lifestyle changes. I wanted to add weight training as well, but there is still this glitch that keeps me from going to the gym. Thinking it's time to invest that $10 / month in a set of those fun looking stackable … Continue reading Giving tight and inflexible a new meaning.

Still got some work to do…

So yeah, I went to the gym last night.  First time since March, I think.  Put my podling on blast, made sure the ear buds were securely in my ears, and didn't make eye contact with anyone except the desk staff.  Went straight back to the free weights, secured a flat bench and proceeded to … Continue reading Still got some work to do…

And so it begins…

Figured I'd pop in early on Day 1 and well, drop a few words.  Since I've already shared the "before" pics, might as well share the stats that go along with them: Age: 47 (soon to be 48) Height: 5' - 6.5" (I'm shrinking, lol.  I once stood a whole 5' - 7.75") Chest: 40" … Continue reading And so it begins…

TMI…maybe?

(*can’t believe I’m doing this.  I mean, really.  Like anyone wants to see my wildly out of shape body. But then again, I’ve shown you my balding head, not to mention the knot behind my ear.  Hell, I’ve shared all kinds of insecurities with the readers of this blog, why should this be any different.  … Continue reading TMI…maybe?

It Doesn’t Help That I’m Fashion Challenged

So I went on this little rant deal the other day about not being able to find clothes that fit. I thought about it some more and you know what part of the problem is? I have no real idea of what looks good on me to begin with. I have no fashion sense what … Continue reading It Doesn’t Help That I’m Fashion Challenged

That Awkward Stage – Mid Life, WTF -Part deux.

I'm in that awkward stage where I'm between sizes again. Happened to me when I was in junior high. Puberty hit me in the head and I was suddenly to big to fit clothes that were age appropriate - a.k.a. fashionable for kids my age. Consequently, I ended up wearing boys clothes a lot. I … Continue reading That Awkward Stage – Mid Life, WTF -Part deux.
