    Did a little resistance band work at home. The weather is gorgeous, so I then went for a 1.3 mile walk/jog. That was plenty considering my hamstrings are still complaining at me. But I (slowly) jogged enough to get my heart rate up near 150 so it was good enough for now. I didn't exercise at all in Wyoming so I didn't want to push it my first day back...

    I didn't really exercise, but I helped one brother move his old water heater up the stairs and out of his house, then helped the other brother move an armoire from his 2nd floor downstairs to the 1st floor. Also did a bit of shooting...

    I really worked out tonight for the first time in two weeks. It hurt, but I think the break was good for my hamstrings. I had no discomfort tonight...

    2.1 miles on the treadmill, including 1 mile in 11:06. Couldn't quite break that 11 minute barrier, but for still being 225 pounds I thought it was ok.

    :D

    Concentration curls x5
    Tricep extensions x3

    30 minutes on the treadmill, including my first 10 minute mile since I started doing cardio. Total distance just under 2.5 miles, and about 425 calories burned...

    Oh, BTW - my scale read 220.8 today. I haven't been under 220 pounds since 2011 or 12. I'm so close I can taste it...

    You're doing great, @Meerkat for what you've been through lately.

    Yes, 29 every year gets old so I started reverse aging.
    I went for a brief walk Tuesday night with dog and one of my girls. Might have seen an armadillo. Went for a short walk on Sunday too. Hey at least I moved.

    Cut 20 seconds of my mile time - 1 mile in 9:40. But my hamstrings are complaining at me again, so I guess I need to back off a bit. Still, this middle aged fat guy is making progress.

    And I broke 220 on the scale this morning, finally! 219.6 - got to see if I can keep it going...

    I haven't done the Cotton Eyed Joe in 25 years, and I've certainly never done it sober...:D
