There's A Fat Man In The Bathtub With The Blues

Hola Amigos,
I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya, but not much has been going on...the yard work is progressing nicely, weather is improving, spring is 30 days away.

One new thing is that I have decided to go on a 30 day program of heavy exercise in order to drop 5kg. That's about 10 lbs in US & A language. The reason for this is that Kimberly and I will be taking a week's holiday to the Cook Islands for her birthday and I want to be in top physical condition so I can wear a Speedo...or at least look less embarrassing in my bathrobe.



My plan was to join a club for a month and go every day and burn fat by running on the treadmill for 30 minutes or so.

I went to the local workout place, named BJ's. There are others, but I like BJ's.

I met up with Jack, the kid behind the front desk and learned that I could join for a month or get a full year's membership at a better daily rate. Since I live for the moment and can't picture myself working out as a regular part of my life after I drop those kilos, I opted for the more expensive 30 day membership.




Jack included himself in the deal as a personal trainer for one free consultation, which I took. He showed me where the cardio equipment was and instructed me on a few machines that would help shape me into a rock hard, finely chiseled specimen of a 60 year old geezer.




Turns out I weigh about 83kg which relates to about 182 lbs.

So I have gone religiously every day and ran until my heart rate was up to 150 bpm. I have taken missteps on the damn thing and fell off about 3 times already.

I do upper body working machines and even a couple sit ups on occasion.

After five days, I now weigh 83kg but I have definitely lost five days.

All this brings us to the unfortunate story of the boysenberry cobbler which will be discussed in the next post.

Surely I can't top the first comment of the day, of which I am sure there will be more comments as there should be. We have all been through your losing weight events, each one more entertaining than the last. I must admit my fondest one was when you and daddy bet something for a month and I believe you ended up in a steam room prior to the final weigh in. I hope others chime in on what they remember throughout your weighty years. We all know Kimberly has her hands full when it comes to trying to get you on the fit side of life. Remember, laughing is the best medicine of all and might even help you lose a few kgs.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
