I do sometimes run to Rammstein, but not today . . .
Not a bad plan. I follow the "Starting Strength" program by Mark Rippetoe. My girl plays on a defensive line for a woman's football team. She is 5'3" and wanted to get bigger and stronger. Five main lifts...bench, deadlift, back squat, military press and power cleans.
Its awesome. Both of our gains have been great! Powerlifting with your partner=sexy!

There is nothing new about how I have now pretty much gotten rid of my Trucker Belly. (I spent/wasted 27 years driving 18-wheelers.) We all know how -- it's just a matter of willpower. For me, my decision to go nude for much of this year's burn was a big willpower-booster. I simply like feeling the breeze on all of my skin, and not feeling my movements hampered by awkward textile-contraptions, and I wasn't about to do that with the "spare tire" still on me. So... yogurt, veggies, and portion control, and a bit of daily walking.
175 for sure by 2014. We may have to take in the tutu.
