Well I joined one of the 2 college gyms in my little town which are the only gyms in the area and boy am I sore.

Those first few workouts are a bitch when one has taken an extended break. I over did it on my first day back and was so sore for a week that I couldn't bring myself to go to the gym until the following week. That's just plain stupid and counterproductive. Sometimes less is more.

I'll give you credit, I couldn't eat what you are. All those chicken breasts, wow! Fortunately, all I have to do is reduce the portions and gradually the excess weight comes off. Can't cheat if you're not officially dieting. I'm looking to bottom out at 175 lbs. Right now the scale reads that I am only 2 lbs. off from reaching that goal. Being a geezer, I didn't want to lose the pounds too rapidly as my belly skin would have sagged worse than it did.  :(

Thanks Prime.......yes I got waaay too sore at first.


Adjusting my diet is not really a problem as I have done a ton of contests and like to feel like I`m a Spartan as I get much better results this way.

No oils or nuts,avacados,or shit like that except for the occasional olive oil.
