Day 3.10 Lifting is easy, lazy man’s work

I really meant to write the man blog yesterday, I had my day planned out.

Get Charlotte on the bus…go for a run, 4 mile sprints, then off to the gym…peanuts weight, run a few errands and get back with time to key in a short blog post…

Before I knew it time had flown by and I had to pick Charlotte up from the bus…

Plus a visit for driveway scotch.

After 4 miles of sprints yesterday the wife and I went to the gym…It’s been a while, like 6 months, maybe 8…a long time.

I took it pretty easy, no super heavy lifts.  I wanted to be able to brush my teeth this morning…

There is some pain though, but that is the way it goes.

I did not do any crossfit…I lowered all my weight back to the floor…no drops…It seems like fun, but the neg builds a lot of strength as everyone outside of the crossfit craze seems to know.

I weighed in yesterday morning at 230, that after an evening of scotch and a late dinner. I did try the scale after the gym and was at 228 pounds…this morning I hit 229.6 pounds.

Again yesterday there was a wee bit of scotch to be had in the driveway.  We had a few people stop by, Scott 1 in his 37 Ford and long hair Scott…I hadn’t planned on driveway pops…but you can’t let company down.  Dan Auns dropped over for a short visit, a good little time in the late summer sun.

So let’s say 4 or 5 ounces of scotch was followed up once again with a late dinner…and I’m still under 230…not bad.

The guys are deep into diets of their own…

Well some of them are trying more than others…

Parker is down 5 pounds to 253 pounds.  That’s a lot of pizza …I’m seeing him down another 10 pounds within 2 weeks.  At 250 plus the first 10 to 15 pounds drops off pretty quickly.

He is on the shakes, just one solid meal a day.  That’s a tough way to go but it will get the weight off as Parker has shown before…

But keeping it off…none of us have pulled off that parlour trick yet.

Beagle is also on his diet, finding himself at 202 pounds after a weekend baseball tournament.  Beagle has some workout pains also, a 28 hour drinking fandango will do that sort of thing.

Beagle has his vacation booked, 5 months out.  He tells me he will be travelling with a buddy of his that is in great shape…I quote “Greek warrior”.  When I first read his text I thought he was trying to say he was going to have the body of a greek warrior in 5 months…

It is possible of course…but that would be a commitment…ya…I read that wrong for sure…although Beagle does say he has been inspired.

I do see him following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks…but I’m not sure about warrior…

We shall see…

The Quote of the Day:

I don’t believe in fad diets.

Makes sense to me.

It’s cooling off…soon we will all be turning on the furnace.
