    Yesterday was a special day for me. Until then, the farthest I had ever run was 5 miles. Yesterday, I topped it by running to my folk's apartment and back for a total of 10 miles.

    Thanks. I have to admit, I wasn't running the whole time. In fact, I took a short break at my parent's place for tea and some conversation, and then stopped at a McDonalds for a quick burger on the way back.

    I've been hard at work at that this week. I seem to have acquired a recent sugar addiction and have been snacking a lot more than I used to.

    Very impressive! I wish I could do barbell bench, but my shoulders don't like it. My gym only has dumbbells up to 90 lbs, so I've just been hanging around with them and doing stupid high reps for chest press. You will definitely be the most jacked guy in the Canadian hot tub

    Yeah I can see how barbell bench could be irritating for some shoulders.
    Still though, doing high reps of 90 lb dumbbells is impressive as hell man. The balance and control required for that is much more of a workout than doing 250 with a bar.

    I don't want to change my lifestyle of eating and drinking lots, so being cut is out of the question. Fat muscular. Bearmode!
    Don't think you'll be able to get me into the hot tub though!!

    So with my hurt shoulder, I decided all I could really do is cardio. I set a goal to run 40 miles a week (I run usually a tenth of that) and of course promptly injured my achilles and am now wearing a boot as often as I can throughout the day. But! - one of the few exercises I actually can do at the moment is deadlift, which I haven't really touched for 8 years, always being worried about my back. Started out just working on range of motion a few weeks ago, now at 225 x 8. Still haven't felt it at all in legs....shit my lower back is incredibly weak.

    Pretty sure I'm 5 lbs lighter than this time last year, which for me isn't a good thing...it's incredibly hard for me to put ON weight.

    This will be my first cruise but I've read somewhere there is usually a running track on deck but I'm guessing it might not be there for our cruise because of stage stuff or that people are everywhere including on the track? Anyone who knows?

    The promenade on deck 7 is probably your best bet. The jogging track on deck 12 will be full of people, except possibly early morning before the first gig.

    Guessing that in my head I really think I will take time for running, but in reality I'll just take the stairs (elevator....) holding a beer...

    I believe there is a fitness center on the ship that you could use if you have no luck with the running track.

    Also, I need people to give up on their New Year Resolutions already. Damn fitness center at our apartment complex is packed now. :bitch:

    You're a tall dude. Doing any kind of Olympic lift is already harder because you've got to push/pull/lift farther than shorter guys. Do you use a belt for deads? Once I started using it, I stopped worrying about my lower back as much.

    I don't use a belt, perhaps I should try it out and see if I like it. But yeah, in terms of appearance and weight I can move, it would be a massive difference if I was shorter. Still though, it's better to have good sight lines.

    At work they gave us all Fitbits which are devices which count the number of steps you take each day. They are having a competition in the office but there are a couple of young people in the office that regularly play basketball and they are blowing away the rest of us old folks. Playing basketball evidently gives an Ungodly step count.

    But its a good motivational tool, will get on the bike or elliptical at home to add some points when watching tv.

    There comes a time in your life where you just decide your health is more important. After the 5th time in a year a complete stranger walked up to me in public and told me that I looked like the comedian Penn Jillette, I decided to do something about it. Granted I was also called a "fat" piece a shit, by a family (not blood related) member several times with in the past 2 years.

    Well I joined Golds Gym Sunday and I have worked out two days in a row. I decided to do 8 personal training sessions too. I have eliminated sugar from my diet and junk food. My goal is to lose 50 or 60 lbs and look like a chemo patient by June.

    Still going. Only day off from killer hardcore cardio was Friday. Hired a personal trainer and start training march 16. I had no idea how much I weighed until yesterday at the gym. Scale there said 245 pounds. :bitch: The no booze for 8 days has been the hardest. Lol

    I'm trying to lose 40lbs by MDF and my June 13th graduation, with Hellfest the following week..

    Update- I am still going strong. I have lost 12 lbs and have a personal trainer now. My first session was yesterday and I am sore today. We did my Body fat measurments (BMI- BODY MASS INDEX) and I have 35% fat on my body right now. We are trying to cut that in half. My ultimate goal is to lose 40 more lbs by June 13th. My graduation day from college.

    Good for you, Scott!

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before but there is this app called "My Fitness Pal" and it really helps you keep track of your diet (if you're honest). It has helped me lose weight and have better nutrition.

    Thank you ! No I have never heard of that app. I will download it now and add my 1/2 a grapefruit and Dannon Light and Fit Greek yogurt (Pineapple) to my food diary. :D

    I bought a pair of Rollerblades yesterday and used them for the first time today... which was also the first time in probably 15 years :shock: I remember being so comfortable on blades, definitely a different experience this time but I didn't bust my ass so I consider that a win. I also had two old ladies tell me how much fun it looked like and that I looked really cool, so I'll take that as a win too :cool: Plus it was sunny and a high of 76, perfect weather to exercise outdoors :D
    I want what we've never had!

    Congrats!


    I wish I could do that. I have no motivation.. I need to lose 50-60lbs and am depressed over being fat... I would love to reach my goal by the time next cruise rolls around.. but I highly doubt it as it has been my goal for years now....
    I'm lazy.. and can't afford a gym/trainer.. and I have no one to push me or go with me....it sucks.. I am right now trying to change my eating habits ... but yeah.. I just don't enjoy anything about exercising....can someone send me some motivation!!!!!!!

    A couple weeks ago I bought a simple elliptical/stair climber and I've been using it every other day for about 20-30 minutes. For those that don't know the extreme depths of my laziness, this is a big deal for me :lol:

    how much did you spend on it?

    I feel like if I could do something like that at home I'd be more into it then having to travel ....
    again... lazyness gets the best of me...

    It was less than $300 on Amazon, and doesn't take up very much space. Fits nicely by my couch in front of the TV :cool: I really don't like gyms and it would be impossible to get me to go to one every other day.
