182



So I noticed as did my buddy Bruce that I had a few extra pounds going for the off season..I admit I embraces the off season by having a lot of drink and a lot of be merry. I also have not worked out much with the knee issue and decided that day 1 of ly PT that I did last night would be the start back. Bruce and I were laughing and I decided to hit the scale for the first time in months...HOLY SCHNIKE!!! 182 and that without shoes or anything. I went from a ironman race day weight of 167 to this in a matter of months. I admit it am not concerned as I start on the path of the workout again it will come off pretty quick. I laughed out loud though when I saw the number....man did I enjoy that off season and I must say that has me motivated again for 2008. without a true off season I do not think you mentally or physically are ready to start another season so if you have not had one take a 4 week break and be stupid,.,,,,,,your body and mind will thanks you.

now back to guitar practice and stretching on my knee.

You FAT BASTARD!!! J/k bro. I've put it on too, although I haven't weighed myself lately since my scale at home has been broken. The day of reckoning and motivation for me will come when I finally get to the pool and weigh myself there - it aint gonna be pretty!

Oh well, at least we know what to do to lose it!!!

You should suction that stuff out and make soap with it! Don't worry bro... you'll be down to race weight within a couple of months...
