A Recap of January in this MOAM Quest to shed the label of "Big Guy".
After one month, I have officially lost 13 lbs., kept up a regime of 45min. aerobic sessions on the Cybex, interspersed with a couple 60 min. sessions and days off for stuff like illness, real estate closings and Grandson Births.
I also bought and installed a 300 lb. Olympic Free Weight barbell set, as well an accessory bench and squat rack. My first experimental workout with the weights was very promising and I intend to start performing the www.stronglifts.com program on Monday.
The experimental workout was followed by a 45 min. session on the Cybex yesterday, and today I am a little sore... especially in my core area.... aka "Fat Gut". I am psyched to turn a keg into a six pack, which should be a byproduct of this routine come August of this year.
Mentally, I am prepared to ski with my Grandkids, which would have been not feasible as close as last December. And come the end of February, I plan to invest in a good road bike for April/May when all of this white stuff that the Democrats call "Global Warming" has receded.
Business-wise, it was a productive month as well, so that I can't see why I can't incorporate this program without any financial compromise.
This month was easy as far as motivation... what with reading the "Younger Next Year" book cover to cover twice,... and getting a lot of advice from FB Friends, Christos Laganos, Wayne Webster, and Jim Lundgren.... all Lynn English High School classmates of mine.
Next Month's February recap will tell the real story.
