    Keep it up UD...And the rest a youse...


    I hadn't done any real exercise since May, and lost 80 pounds of muscle and fat. When you life falls apart, motivation is hard. Till last weekend.

    What 25 years of almost constant exercise gets you, is the ability to quickly regain what you lost if you're serious about it. And don't overdo it so much, you injure yourself (Halla!).

    5 hours total over 14 days. Not much time is it? 5 out of 336. No one's schedule is so full they can't take the time to get some exercise. Being depressed notwithstanding.

    Not bad for an old geezer...


    And for those who think I am attention whoring...Take your opinion, fold it into sharp corners, and shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

    No real exercise since May and your arms still look like that with 5 hours of exercise? Wow!

    This is the exercise thread, hearing about other people doing well encourages the rest. Nothing positive is attention whoring here.

    Like I said, exercise helps keep you young. Hell, look at Jack LaLanne. In his 90's, and doesn't look much older than many 60 year old's I've met.

    I really want to kick this weight but I'm having trouble being healthy. Waa.
    Questions:
    1. Are you drinking too much caffeine? Sleep is SO essential and may explain the exhaustion. I've had a hard time with this recently. Also not enough water?
    What I've been doing:
    No caffeine after 3 or 4 pm. Don't eat a couple hours before bed. Wind down an hour before and finally, drink milk. The tryptophan induces sleep.

    2. As Udog said, insufficient calories or I would add, nutrition?
    Suggestions:
    1. Wolfy's suggestion about protein is great - soy milk is also high and easy to imbibe.
    2. Maybe tracking how much nutrition/sustenance you're getting? An easier way of tracking is calculating your weight watcher points and just seeing if you are meeting the min every day -- so many point websites online. if you're not, survival mode would be induced, reducing the rate of metabolism - low energy and slow down weight loss.
    3. Do you take a vitamin supplement? I take mine with/after lunch so that I can get that surge in the afternoon when the energy boost is most needed.

    :woohoo: Awesome job, Udog. BTW - I did hear the sound, thought it was coming from my car engine. Glad I don't have to get my car checked out any more.

    P.s. I think the ladies should post pictures of their victories too [No bias here at all]

    Good job, Biax. Welcome back to life.

    I need to use one cheat for last week.

    I went walking lots this week so I'm counting them as workouts. I have spent two days this weekend plus last Monday sleeping all day. I don't know what it is that I have but it's been a month and a half! (Everyone else at school has it too!).

    Great weather this weekend and I got a chance to get out and walk in the park, doing laps around the park right across the street.
