Buff Stuff

My friend Stuff has been working out. Working out like a fiend, in fact. And he's slimmed down and buffed up. So I decided to start working out with him. I've always found it much easier to motivate myself to work out when there is another person involved, be it a trainer or a friend.

Last night was my first weightlifting workout in two years. Shoulders and biceps, followed by 30 min. of cardio. It was a little depressing to see how little I could lift compared to the days when I was lifting two or three times a week. And really depressing to consider that, after college, I was going to the gym twice a day, five days a week. Man, I was in great shape then.

Anyway, at least I'm heading in the right direction. We're working out again tonight.

And yes, my arms and shoulders are really, really sore.

Oh, and none of this has anything to do with the fact that I'm flying home in early September for a reunion with a bunch of people I haven't seen in 20 years.

Good luck on your work out AND your reunion. I have NO motivation to get to the gym like I should. We just sit around watching TV every evening instead.

Mark: Sex burns a lot of calories. I'm just saying.

Palochi: Given my current shape, I'd be lucky to qualify for YogiBear.com.

Homer: Isn't it like a million degrees where you are? I'd be laying on a block of ice and trying not to move at all.

I lifted an Auntie Anne's pretzel in Penn Station on the way home. Does that count for anything? They're pretty heavy for pretzels! ;)

According to the pedometer my doctor gave me, I walked seven miles over the course of yesterday....does that count for me...

Along with the fact that I've pretty much gone vegetarian my blood sugar is getting back on track which is a good thing...gotta love the health food grocery store two blocks from my office....
