Mr. Vines,

It has been made to our attention that you have chosen to take your health a little more seriously, and we love to see it. More than just quitting smoking, you have chosen to strap on your new flourescent yellow bicycle shorts and hit the one wheel wonder we call the exer-bike.

Yes my friend, this is going to be arduous journey. Filled with sacrifice and i'm pretty sure, embarassment as well. But just keep in mind, as you are getting your fuzzy a$$ spanked by some 60 year old nanas in your new aqua-aerobics class, you can't win the game if you don't play.

I chose your favorite color to atract your attention, for this may be the best info I can pass on to you buddy. Maybe the next best thing? This:

Keep a record. Where you were the day you joined the gym... and I don't mean Madam Cho's House of Flapjacks looking for a serious happy ending. I mean height, weight, waist size, chest size, arms, shoulders, and most importantly, get to your sports med school and get your body fat measured. Get yourself a regimen, and try to stick to it. If you're going to do tuesday thursday, get ir dun. Manday, wednesday, friday workouts yield incredible results. A tragic mistake most people encounter is that they don't understand the way your body builds muscle and kills fat cells. It's not just the workout, but how you rest your body during your workout. In between sets, AND in between workouts. So one day on and a day off is usually the best way to ensure a healthy workout for your body.

Don't neglect your anaerobic workout either. A good half hour cardio, and 1 hour to 1.5 hours worth of weights will give you way better results than just 2 hours of weight work or 2 hours of cardio. Not trying to step on your toes, just trying to help you see em!
Just kiddin brotha.

Now, if you wanna use this good luck message as your way to keep track of your prgress, i'd say that would be perty cool, and more rewarding than you'd think. Before you know it, you'll be a chiseled piece of Laura-pleasin man meat. Or just healthy, which is goal number one. Plus, if you do all this, you don't have to give up drinking and burgers dummy! That's the point! I work out so I can eat like sh*t and party. Otherwise i'd be smaller than Eddie.

So there it is then big guy. I wish you luck now that you finally got your gym/rec center/library/hair, nail and tire center membership. I'm sure you'll do us proud!

Excellent advice Jon! Couldnt agree more myself. However, I have a stricter diet than that. I would recommend 5 or 6 smaller meals with your after workout meal being the biggest with the highest calorie intake.
Take one or two days a week to splurge with the deep fried doo-doo if you must, and keep it light the reat of the week. remember, chicken and fish are your best friend! But not the fried variety.

Oh, and I like the "just helping to see your toes comment!"

I remember a very reliable source advising me that, when I made my eating adjustments, it was good to "shock" your metabolism by actually eating before you go to bed, or going nuts on a coney pizza.

Now this is once or twice a week, and definitely spaced out, but it works. The idea is to maintain a metabolism rate that constantly uses what you put in. Like walking to get a big mac instead of driving...

Damnit Mike how much have you lost already!?

Wow, Jon, thanks for the great tips. I'll post all my measurments when I get them tonight, and actually see where I go with it. All I know is those old ladies (60+) kicked my A$$ last night. Some were barly even sweating, and I had a puddle under me. But I never stopped (just slowed down a little).

Hey bro you're preaching to the choir. I remember this one time, I figured i'd try it out. Went in, got started thinking this ain't so bad (surrounded by a mixed bag of young hotties, old hotties, and one guy that looked like he wanted a date with brian) but then it got freakin nuts. Legs here, arms there, hair everywhere. I freaked out and hit the sauna!

My worst:

Weight: 237

Waist: 39

Biceps: 15"

That was after college, before a break-up with this blonde, and right around when I bought my boat.

Then I became single, then my best (this was before I met Stacey so about two years ago):

Height: same
weight: 199
chest: 46
waist: 34
a$$: damn nice. ask big dog.
Biceps: man i loved the gym: 18.25"
