Evil, but cute & gay about it

Since my old 3 day/week gym routine was causing me such grief, I've decided to do 2 days/week, but have those days be more intense. Schedule wise, this is working out well. Progress wise, well, we'll see. I'm still getting back on the horse from all my time off, and it's clear I've lost some cardio capacity. I'm just as good as ever on the (slow) treadmill, but the (fast) elliptical is kicking my ass severely; I'm burning about 25% fewer calories on that one than I was 6 months ago. Yeesh. Weightlifting has suffered too, but some of that is just insufficient stretching. *sigh* I wish personal trainers were more affordable. Bleah.

2006 photo progress: 96/1576 (6.1%) complete.

I need to get back into cardio more too. The winter usually sucks the will right out of me. I had been running 3-5 miles a day where now a good day is when I walk to the T and back (almost a mile one way). Even though I can still lift quite a bit, I am feeling a bit doughy, especially after returning from Africa and all the yummy, yummy food.

Personal trainers are unnecessarily expensive. But, I am sure you'll do great, bud. It sounds like you have made some real progress and you should be proud!

Thanks for your kind words; I hope to at least match last year's progress. It's not going to be easy, though.

I'm not going to tell you that your feelings are wrong, but a friend pointed out your Bearciti profile, and "doughy" is *not* a word that comes to mind. At all. "Woof" does, though.

:-) Thanks, bud!
