Weight loss and fitness.

Postby spyderknut » Mon Dec 27, 2004 11:16 am

At 5' 9" and 195 lbs, I need to lose at least 20 lbs. I also want to increase my aerobic fitness. I will be making a workout schedule for myself this week and will take baseline photos (which I will not post here :eek: ) and measurements and follow my progress at least monthly. I will post my baseline photo on my refridgerator. Motivation. Fortunately, I have a fit and supportive wife. Now if I can only get work demands to cooperate.

I resolve to fix up the homestead more aggressively. A lot of basic work, maybe a walkin closet for my better half.
Happy New year all.

Improvements in all things...

Postby Hannibal Lecter » Mon Dec 27, 2004 11:51 am

I have been thinking about resolutions for better than a week now. I hereby resolve:

To lose sufficient weight to reach my goal of 175 pounds (this will admittedly be tough) and be in overall better health. (No, I won't divulge my current weight :p ).

To begin enjoying the best of all things to their fullest, within reason and budget: wine, pipe tobacco, and food for a start. Less "junk" food, healthier eating and better recipes with better ingredients overall. (Nothing to excess, mind you: that is what got my weight over ideal to start with, though I realize that these first two resolutions may seem mutually exclusive.)

But more than anything else, to be the best husband and father I am capable of becoming. There is nothing more important in my life than my family, and they deserve only the very best I have to offer.

As an afterthought, not to get cut yet again by one of my Spydies. :eek:

The best of all things to everyone here for the upcoming new year.

Thanks for the contest! My resolution: doing the best I can during the clinical internships, with which I'll probably start this year.

Hi Joyce, may you and all the Spydercrew enjoy a New Year filled with good friends, good health and good fortune.

I stopped smoking back in early August and my resolution is resist that temptation for the coming year.

I resolve to try not to flunk as many exams as last year... :o

Oh, and I think I should try not cutting myself when demonstrating a freshly resharpened knife, pain besides, it was pretty embarrassing... although the cut was very clean, both paper and fingertips...

I resolve to lose weight and to keep my Spydercos sharp with my new Sharpmaker.

I resolve to sell my Lanksy sharpener on eBay.
