    Thanks gents. I went on a 1.75 mile run earlier today to get things started.

    No cooking tonight since I'm going out to dinner with wifey and the kids to celebrate.

    TGIF!

    Thank you friends. Jaer, the next awesome meal that someone prepares for me will be tonight when the chef at one of my favorite restaurants is doing the cooking. More below.

    Update

    I had a great birthday celebration with wifey and the kids on Friday. I think I may have written that wifey and the kids wanted to throw a big party, but I was against it so although the vote was 3:1 my birthday gave me 3 additional votes and democracy was thrown out the window :lol:. Yesterday was low key and tonight, as mentioned above, we're going to dinner with an out of town cousin and my sister. My kitchen responsibilities will resume tomorrow.

    I'm happy to write that my first two post 60th b'day workouts went well. The humidity today was a killer, but the workout is completed so yay! Before my cousin and sister arrive I'm going to take advantage of the small window of non rain we're currently experiencing, get on my hammock, and read. Yep, a lazy day from here on in.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks M@!

    Update

    Today was one of those days where I had to push myself to get to the gym because I wasn't feeling energized. As happens 99% of the time I felt much better walking out of the gym than walking in. I did three rounds of:

    Kb double rack squats
    Kb deadlifts
    Incline Bb bench presses
    Incline Bb skull crushers
    Seated rows
    Pushups
    Standing Bb curls
    Heavy ropes
    Planks

    Dinner tonight is going to involve chicken breasts and a salad.

    Have a great day!

    I am glad Justitia posted that link to the Muscle and Strength John Stone interview. I don't ever recall reading it, it was motivational.

    Thank you.

    I'll haven't clicked on the link yet, but will.

    Update

    Exercise for the day so far has been about 3.5 miles of walking. :rolleyes: About half was a round trip to meet a friend for breakfast. Ideally I would go for a run this afternoon, but lately when I've been writing that it usually doesn't happen.

    Dinner tonight is going to be shrimp and a salad.

    Have a great day!

    Early morning fun at the gym. Four rounds of:

    Ab wheel rollout HOLDS (evil)
    Kb single arm deadlifts
    Jump squats
    Heavy ropes
    Pushups with one hand on a riser
    Kb two arm swings

    We then did a circuit of various core exercises for about 12 minutes.

    Dinner tonight is going to be a turkey/Italian sausage meatloaf that I'm going to cook on my kamado cooker and roasted carrots with paprika.

    Have a great day!

    Got to the gym this AM for a shoulder centric routine.

    We're going away this afternoon and for the next three days exercising is going to be challenging. I don't see anything happening on Friday and while I know we'll be doing a bunch of walking (mainly sightseeing type stuff) on Saturday and Sunday I'm going to really have to plan things if I want to get a run done. Weights are out of the question until we return home, but I'm going to squeeze in some pushups. Gotta do what you gotta do.

    We're bringing healthy snacks for the car ride and the motel room, but all meals will be restaurant ones. The people we're visiting are not known for making healthy dietary choices but hopefully the venues they choose will have some good options. Obviously, no cooking for me until we return on Monday.

    Per my usual M.O. I will not be online while away.

    To all who celebrate, have a great holiday weekend. For those that don't have a great weekend. :-)

    Thanks M@! Tomorrow is the BC Law School graduation ceremony for dear daughter's BF. After that we're going to Salem, where he lives, for a couple of days.

    Thanks Todd; we did.

    Update

    A very nice time while away. As expected my diet was less than exemplary, although portion control was good, and the only exercise was walking for most of the day on Saturday. We got home Sunday evening and my original plan was to go for a run and then hit the gym Monday AM as usual, but for some mysterious reason I screwed up my back while WALKING on Saturday. I had no ROM of my left arm, couldn't bend, couldn't turn my neck, etc. Obviously, any exercise was out of the question, but I'm about 90% recovered and am planning to go to the gym tomorrow.

    Dinner last night was burgers, corn on the cob, French fries, and a salad that was followed by lots of berries for dessert. I made the fries in my newly attained birthday gift air fryer/multi cooker and for 2 pounds of potatoes I used less than 2 teaspoons of oil so as long as one isn't trying to limit carbs, such as dear daughter and Macdiver among others, they were healthy. Dinner tonight is going to be chicken leg quarters that I'm going to cook on my kamoda and a side salad.

    Have a great day!

    On the bright side, potatoes have the most potassium of any food.:) Impressive, that you only have to use 2 teaspoons of oil for 2 pounds of potatoes. How did they taste, could you tell the difference that they were fried differently?


    Nice gift.

    I never heard of an air fryer / multi cooker in one machine? What brand is it?
