90 seconds is the rest time between sets.

Today is Easter Sunday - I am really sore.

I missed this one. I could not make it. Was too tired from everything I have had to do.

Tuesday Funday- why?

Because I don't have to wake up at 4:00AM.

Starting Monday, next week, I am going to be on a strict diet. I want to cut the fat, and hopefully gain definition. I know I am old, but this is what I am doing. Yeah, I can't stop. Stopping would mean defeat. I have been defeated by almost everything else....but this I can control.

I hope this doesn't come off as whining - I am just trying to be blunt.

NO sugar is one of the new rules. I have not look at anything else. I think I'll cut sugar and booze first, then read up on it. Might even get my measurements done - that would take courage.

A day off

I am sitting here drinking coffee, thinking what will I do. Sure I have work to do. I'll do some. Not all.

It's a weird feeling. Not quite peaceful. I should take the dogs, but I'll do that tomorrow.

It's going to be a simple easy day. LIKE.
