    Today's workout will be snow shoveling with many, many, many reps. As I stated in another thread, there is no gravity, the world sucks.

    Rest day today and it is too stinking cold out. I ended up at the gym and did 30 minutes on the spin bike and a few sets of leg lifts. Left the weights alone today.

    SWMBO put a Fitbit on me Christmas day.

    I don't work out but I am digging the idea of getting off of my keister and becoming more active. I'm committed to keeping track of calories too. I wanna drop 30 pounds over the next 6-8 months.

    If you don't have one, get a kitchen scale. People vastly underestimate the amount of food consumed. Using the myfitnesspal app and a scale to track what I eat, I was able to lose 50 lbs a few years ago. I put some back on over the last 16 months since I have discovered the gym.

    Okay, personal story. I'm 5'6.5". Back in April when I left my previous job for the one I'm working now, I weighed 199 lbs. I was working 1700-0100 with a 0100-0900 mixed in. Weekends were 12 hr days. I was eating junk food. When I was bored at work I would eat snacks out of the vending machine. In April I went to work for my present employer. It's a warehouse and we ride three wheel bikes to get around, plus walking. I stopped eating junk food, cut out the snacks. I don't eat anything between 1900 and 0700 or 2000 and 0800(forgive the mil-time, 29 yrs of habit). When I weighed myself this morning I was 170.8. Ok 171 I guess. You can do it. Good luck!

    I have been struggling to get back into shape; not a weight thing, recovering from an injury type thing. I have been pretty sedentary for the last five months or so... I have been using Robyflexx as a role model. He's on the left:

    18 minutes on the Rowing Machine
    4x20 Captain Chair Leg Lifts
    6x10 Bench Press
    4x10 Pullovers
    4x10 Incline Bench Press
    3x20 Overhead Plate Lift

    I'm really not a huge fan of bench press, but realize that I have to do it. Tonight I wanted to set some base lines and for each set I was able to crank out 10 reps, I would add weight and do another set. I was going up 20lbs each set until the last two when it was getting tough. I added 10 lbs was able to do it for set 5 and then added 10 more for set 6. I was only able to do 7 reps before I racked it, took a short break then finished the reps. I am stronger than I thought. I was able to bench 205 lbs on my last set. If I didn't kick my butt on the rowing machine to warm up, I might have had a little more in me.
