Look'in good Dude. You are leaning out and arms look bigger WAY TO GO. Just got through pounding the treadmill time for oats and protien.


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

Yeah, I can see how the rope would come in handy. Thanks for the information.

All your hard work is showing PAPAW. The pictures look great. I love doing squats but my knees don’t like them much, so I only do them once a month. The other workouts are loaded with leg presses, but they are no substitute for squats. IMO

Sorry to hear about the knees, I know how you feel, I had a left knee reconstructed a few years ago. It's in good shape, but not as strong as the right knee, and after being a runner for a few years, well need I say more.
I take ya'lls advice and take it as it comes. The thought of being in a wheel chair gives me the shivers.

I think I would have been better off to go to work and then work out yesterday. It started off at 6:00 am. I had to load up the pickup and that took all of 30 minutes. Had to load tiller by hand no one there to help. Lumber, guns, etc. to go to the lease and get trails cleaned up, that was mowing, trimming limbs and trees out of the trail. We had two dead trees fall across the trail. My brother, a Baptist minister, bought breakfast at... you got it McDonalds, so I took a few bites of the sausage and bisquit. I use to love sausage and bisquit. What happened to the wonderful taste. We busted hump getting all the grass mowed, feeders filled. I forgot the boards to fix the platform on my stand so I'll have to go back down there to do that. My brother bought us lunch (at 3:00 pm, the last time I looked at my watch it was 12:33) this is a little town with one resturant. The closest thing to my diet was a B.L.T. with onion rings. Of course I was starving so down it went and 3 glasses of tea. I had some carbs and sugar in me so I was ready to go. When they hit I was like a new man. I could tell the difference between working out and not working out. It's like night and day. I looked over at my brother and I thought he was going to have a stroke. Why is it grown men can't understand sit down and rest. He's 3 years older than me. He's a great guy, we're getting closer as life goes on. His son was there and he brought the big mower and a mule (side by side 4 wheeler) . I did alot of arm movement. All in all we had a great time.
I just have to get back on the diet. I saw 4 doe on the way home, man they looked good.
Hope all went well with all of you.

Sounds like fun PaPaw, and I feel you on the sausage biscuit. When I started doing all day trips with the off road group diet became an issue. They are not real big on eating healthy but since they know me from the gym we started working on eating healthy when we ride. This is going to carry over into hunting season too.
I always take a big ice chest full of bottled water. In the stand I will use my camel pak hydration system just like on the bike. Back up will be nutrition bars but I rather have a peanut butter sandwich with some protein or a turkey sandwich. Iíve been using these sandwich round things. 100 calories for 2 slices 17g whole wheat
carb 21g
protein 4g
sugar 3g
They hold up good in a zip lock bag in the cooler too.
I pack my protein dry in a shaker cup and just add a bottle of water when Iím ready to drink it. Rinse the cup and wash it as soon as you can, I store them in the cooler to keep the smell down until I can wash them at home.
Planning is key and if your friends are like mine they plan on subway but I just canít make it on 3 meals a day anymore than I can find the meat on a subway sandwich, so I got to plan.

WO, I haven't thought the meal thing while I'm at deer camp. Thanks for the wakeup. Baggies for protein drink, second meal has been egg whites so I'll need to find a substitute there, maybe instant oatmeal, lunch, no problem, afternoon, tuna in a can. evening meal is going to be tough. We all put our stuff together and eat . I'll be missing workouts too. Maybe it will give my body time to recouperate. Then the Monday after BAMO super workouts.

Anybody that believes they can't lose weight; I felt the same way. But with a little help from my friends it was done.

Rockin' Papaw. I mentioned your success when I was talking to my dad the other day. He is trying to lose weight and has done a good job so far(60lbs I think he said), but has hit a plateau. I told him that it is definitely possible, but he has to change up his diet even more. He is stubborn and likes his junk food haha.

You keep up the good work though!

I gotta watch myself; it's too easy to slip back into the bad habit of eating wrong. Tell your dad congratulations and he's done a great job for me. My hat's off to him. He's lost twice what I have. Good luck with helping your dad.

You have been a friend. We've never talked except on the website, but I consider you a friend. You care about people and try to give them the tools to change themselves. I never dreamed it would work this well.

Your absolutly right Getstrong. I owe Rick a great debt. He's been a good friend.
I appreciate your support GS. When I go workout, I workout mostly by myself. My son comes when he can. If it wasn't for my son and you guys, I wouldn't have much of a reason to workout.

Thanks for the complement, I still struggle from time to time with urges to eat the wrong stuff.
Now if I can get some muscles on I'll be all good.
I can't believe I still have so much to lose still. I've been as low as 130 lbs but that was before I was married 36 years ago. Makes me go hmmmm. Haha
