Keep Me Accountable

Posted in Uncategorized, Working Out Stuff on January 18, 2015 by bpyounger

Well now that you’re all here, this is the reason I’m doing this again. I’m trying to lose some weight and I want your help. I’m planning on using this as an online weight loss diary. So here goes.

My starting weight is 232lbs. Geez I’m fat slow and tired. Us Younger men are generally pretty much barrel bodied, you know kind of round around the middle. I’m going to keep my goals small, that way I hopefully have some sense of accomplishment when I achieve them. My first goal is 220. My whole adult life I’ve bounced between 220 and 230. To me my weight is really just a number, I actually try to keep some muscle on me, nobody looks at a skinny, gaunt runner and says ” Wow he looks great without any shoulders, and those skinny arms, WOW!”. Those online weight calculators say I should be around 190. I’ve never been below 200 since high school. The lightest I’ve been is 203 and I was pretty thin then but it wasn’t maintainable for me.

My job does a pretty good job of keeping my arms muscular but they need definition. So back to the weight bench I go. In  an attempt to slim down I’m also going to be using my treadmill, also known as the hamster wheel. I’ve posted this before but it bears reposting. It’s pretty much what I look like on it.

What I need out of you is to keep me going make sure that I am doing what I say I’m going to do. Please leave comments of encouragement, inspiration, or motivation ( even if it’s tough love). I tend to lose interest and I start making excuses why I can’t work out. I’m tired, I’m sore , I’m too busy, I don’t want to mess up my hair. The same excuses that I’m sure some of you have used. I’ll keep you posted.

P.S I did my first workout yesterday and it went pretty well except for the making my self a little sick. Guess I over did it a bit. I’m really sore this morning. Ouch! Today is leg day , I won’t be able to walk tomorrow.


Finally a good song

We were watching the Grinch and I noticed some thing. Ally looks like Cindy Lou Who.

Let’s Eat A Big Bird

Pearl found this for me and says it looks like something I would post. Does she know me or what? Well it’s Thanksgiving our plans for the day are this. Get up watch the parades, EAT. Get dressed go to my mother’s, see my family, watch football, EAT. Come home for a few minutes, put on pants with an elastic wasteband, pick up a cheese cake, go to my brother-in-law’s house, see Pearl’s family, MORE EATING. Come home again, take Pepto, let the overdose of tryptophan from all the turkey put me into a coma. All in all a good day. Happy Thanksgiving!!

I’ve Gone Global

Posted in Uncategorized on July 2, 2008 by bpyounger

The other day I was looking at the stats for my blog and I noticed that I had several comments in my spam blocker. They all turned out to be the usual stuff for on line gambling, prescriptions for Viagra and Cialis( What’s up with that?) except for one. It came from Amsterdam and appeared to be a real comment. I guess when they say World Wide Web they really mean it. Unfortunately the spam blocker deleted the comment before I could retrieve it. Basically here is the overview of the comment, he liked the way my blog looked but thought the point got lost in the translation. I guess my sense of humor doesn’t translate into dutch (Maybe? I think that’s what they speak.) Or maybe I’m just not that funny. NAAAAA!!!! That’s not it, I crack myself up all the time( I’m a legend in my own mind). Well I guess you can’t please everyone but thanks for commenting MR. Amsterdamian ( Or is it Amsterdamite) keep reading and commenting I promise next time to catch it before it gets deleted. I do have to thank him also for helping to break my bloggers block , my brain has been pretty empty lately( actually that’s not that uncommon of an occurrence). The pressure of keeping thousands …errrr hundreds…..OK tens of people giggling at me was just to much. Not really there was just nothing funny going on right now. But look  out I have ideas now.

P.S. The point of my blog is this. It has no point.  It’s just random stuff that I scrape out of my skull. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s not.
