New Year’S Resolution – Still Going Strong

Recommended Posts

I made a commitment to get & stay in shape as well as lead a reasonably healthy life style.  During this journey I’ve been fortunate to be able to come back well from the setbacks that inevitably come to us all.  For those who share these ideals, I hope you are able to stay focused & strong to that end.  To those who don’t, I hope you can find it in yourself to make it happen. 

 

Btw – I made this particular resolution & commitment in 1977.

Do you have a special diet as well?

Special Diet ?  That term means something different to everyone.  I eat in a manner that supports my goals.  The food is both fuel & a tool.  I eat least 5 or 6 times a day, meal sizes start larger and decrease as the day goes on.  Been doing it that way for several years (35+) and as I age it's changed a bit here and there.   I do not believe any of it is a secret and it's something anyone can do.  Just have to make it a priority.  Doesn't make anyone a better person, but I certainly feel better when it's going right.

Too much work involved. I gave up the 12oz curls in October and have already lost 25lbs

Geez...I'm worn out just watching that video.

 

I have switched almost entirely to grapes or marinated ice cubes.

Still have a barley soda occasionally, but I don't need the bonus

calories anymore.

Nice work AJ! Medical setbacks have dampered my 2014-2015 fitness goals. If I get my health back I am going "all in"

Keep up the good work!

Nice job brother! I'm on a winter bulk right now as a matter of fact; going good for me so far. I have been lifting for that past 31 yrs and it's definitely a way of life for me now. I had shoulder surgery in Jan 2014 and I'm pretty much fully recovered now; able to press full boat.

I, too, urge everyone to get on some sort of fitness program, no matter what it is, just start something. You'll be happy you did.

Nice wheels btw

 Go for it Dwight - you can do it. . . .

 

And before anyone calls me on it - The manufacture of that particular apparatus (Powertec) lists the safe working load for squats on that Leverage machine as 300, so I was a little over. 

 

But I won't tell them if you don't.

Thanks - We're Fenway Freaks. That's a 100 anniversary special Jersey right there.

 

And of course we did have to name a dog Fenway.

Precursor : this Is  not to take away from the current theme of the thread.

 

I, In my younger years, was a functional problem drinker. I quit entirely for six years, started back and after gaining 55 lbs. (enjoyed the fire out of the social aspect) I finally decided to cut back so much that to this day If I tip an alcoholic beverage It's a lot to have more than a few beers every couple of months.

 

AJ... Nice work! The longevity alone Is admirable!

A-Jay you are the man! I made the same commitment three years ago next month. I figure that if I stay focussed for another thirty-five years I will be able to post my videos on whatever is the YouTube of the time...of course I'll be ninety-three...

Gave up beer and smokes two weeks ago

Started working out again

Already lost ten pounds and feel better physically and mentally

Since high school I probably never went more then three days without a beer

Some weeks I would drink every day

I always smoked more when I drank so when I gave up drinking the smokes were easy.

When one chooses to change their life style, instead of focusing on what one "Gives Up" there is great benefit when ones attention is directed at All That Is Gained.

I agree 100%

I am actually happy that I am giving up my gut and gaining mental clarity

Thanks man

I'll add this as a man who has lived it;

 

What you're really doing is taking control of your life, instead of letting your life Happen To You.

 

The spirit liberating confidence a man gains from this can not be imaged or understood unless it is lived. 

 

Good Luck
