    Ya I'm starting to feel like I shouldn't be either lol, I just can't seem to do anything about it. I used to mason tend and was fit as a fiddle, now not so much, kids take to much time.

    Been there, brother.

    Now, mine are 10 and 12 and they can wipe themselves and mostly feed themselves, so a lot of the burden of off of us.

    The biggest problem that I've got to overcome now is inertia.

    My butt is bigger than ever and it's harder and harder to get it out of the chair.

    Yeah, it was more like 13 years ago for me.

    It will pass.

    Take them little ones outside. It is something that I regret NOT having done enough.

    My youngest is a major couch potato. He needs the full force of my boot in his bottom to get him moving.

    When I was 21, I had a job called "bricklayer's laborer. At the end of the first week, I thought I was going to die.

    By the end of the summer, I could pick up two 12" hollow blocks in each hand and place them on a plank higher than my head. I was tanned and tight, an actual "hardbody."

    In the past two years, I dropped 50 lbs and gained back 30, and since December I dropped 15, so I am close to my goal again. It took becoming aware of the calories I took in, and being willing to limit their intake.

    LOL!

    My pants in school were 30 x 32!

    Two years ago, they were 38 x 30.

    Now, they are 34 x 30.

    It will be very hard to get to a 32" waist......

    Never did a job like that, but when I was in my early 20s, I'd work 10-16 hours a day, get home, eat 2 snickers bars, chug a mountain dew and fly back out the door to go rock climbing, or just running in the woods.

    Married life has been good to me. I was a 34x30 on my wedding day.

    My "fat jeans" are 40s.



    Being aware of what you take in has been my issue, I tend to be a mindless snacker, but I'm figuring ways to stop that.

    That's exactly what I did, make mud and make sure they had block to lay. I look at it this way, I had to move the whole basement worth of block, the 3 of them split it up. The 8" hollows I could hand to over my head no problem, then the 14" retaining wall block up to my shoulders anyways.

    Happy Easter, all.


    Tried to have a nice, fat and lazy day today, but that just never works out...

    Dogs off to be groomed at 10:30, fixed the grandmother's garage door broken after than, got home in time to run and pick the 4-legged idiots up ($126 + tip, thank you), home for some dinner, then got the oil changed in the drowned ATV and got 2+ miles in on the bike.

    Hey, Doug, How in the do you keep that think upright and moving forward in the mud? I tried a short section of muddy, uphill trail and wound up walking it the last 30 yards or so. I just couldn't catch any traction. Yes, I've got knobby type tires.

    Anyway, it was a nice ride and almost enough to compensate the the few jellybeans and malted milk eggs that I ate today.
