Back After a 2 Week Layoff

Postby cheapo » Tue Sep 02, 2008 6:14 am

I am back after a two week layoff.
The 1st week, my parents were staying with us and I was off work to spend time with them.
The 2nd week? No excuse.

The strange thing is that I seem to have gotten a bit more cut during the layoff.
I also lost a pound-and-a-half, but that is likely muscle.
I had my son snap a few photos.

My back is most surprising to me. I've always felt like I carry a good layer of backfat!

Week 39

Postby cheapo » Tue Dec 16, 2008 4:47 am

So, my workouts have been sketchy and erratic of late.
I took some photos anyway to see if there was any visible decline in my appearance of fitness. (There's certainly a decline in strength). Anyhow, I don't see that I've backslid much, if at all.

At start of Week 39:

That's great progress Cheapo!
Very inspirational!
Ive read your progress with great interest.
Is your physique purely down to simplefit would you say,resistance wise?
You do conditioning work too?

Thank you for the kind words.

My fitness is almost exclusively based on SimpleFit.
In the summer my other physical activities include weekends spent gardening or renovating. Since the fall, I have been playing ice hockey once a week. (And still renovating on the weekends.)

Ive just read your log too and see you have a busy schedule.
Like you,I have kids and full time job which makes training difficult sometimes,like a lot of others on here too I guess.
That's what I like about simplefit though,it's for the "normal" man and woman!
Some great results on here.
PS Cant believe you're still playing sport at midnight on a Thursday!! :shock:
