    Oh yes. The woodchopping.


    That truly IS great exercise.
    We have our annual 4 chords to cut and chop.

    I have OCD when it comes to my exercise routine. I have spreadsheets on my computer going back to 2007 where I have recorded every set and every rep I have done with weights, every mile that I have walked, and my daily body weight.

    Well, kind lady, I still have this layer that ainít ready to go away.



    Picking wood off the ground helps, but havenít done enough of that.
    And winter is coming.

    I may have to break down and actually do some sorta exercise


    Maybe shoveling snow will help

    I like guys with bodybuilder bodies, but some take it too far (hope it comes through, never inserted an image before) Ok, it didn't come through, here's the link

    Yuck. I don't like overblown body builders; see nothing attractive about that at all.

    Oh YUCK! Some guys do get carried away and the sad thing is that they think it’ looks good. They can barely walk or bent and it doesn’t look good.

    An 8 lb chopping maul, swung just right, for as long as you can stand it, does a lot of things.
    Whatever it doesn’t do, a hike takes care of.

    You will never see me at a treadmill, weight bench, squirrel cage….ever.

    You will see me at the maul, however.
    There's definitely something to hard physical labor.

    I lift weights on a regular basis, but the rest of the time I spend as a couch potato.

    And I have to admit, you cut a better figure shirtless than I do.

    So there will be no shirtless photos of me.

    I think the best shape I have ever been in in my life was during the two years that I was in Junior college. I didn't work out at all. I got into surfing. I mean I lived to surf and surfed to live. Every chance I got. All year long, right through the winter, because in the winter is when you get the best waves in the Gulf of Mexico. The water temperature gets down to the low 60's and sometimes even the upper 50's and I didn't have a wet suit. You spend a couple of hours surfing in that and your body will burn a heck of a lot of calories keeping your core temperature up.

    I get couching

    Heh, get off work
    Go home
    Crash
    Dinner
    Re-crash
    Flick remote
    Doze
    Itís freaking wonderful

    I admire those that lift weights
    I have done a few curls from time to time, and may do some of that this winter, but itís generally not for me

    That surprises me

    I thought it gutsy to post what I didÖnot in the best of shapeÖ.but, itís a shape

    I think dropping another six or eight lbs to get comfortably below 200 lbs, and Iíll feel better, more mobile.

    I donít run, either

    Not even when somethingís chasing me


    Itís what shotguns are for

    Now, a good hike....I'm in
