22-days since beer, 22-days since tobacco/nicotine. 20-days of adding anaerobic to my cardio. I've oft-read that lifting is good for the over-forty crowd (and helps us guys with maintaining spectacular levels of testosterone) but outside of push-ups and the occasional standing curl (which I hate), not really doing much along those lines.

Until my son expressed interested in weight-lifting. So I thought, "Why not?" I gotta say, I LOVE the Preacher Bench. No more standing curls. Quite a few changes to my life which effortlessly integrate this into my lifestyle. Not drinking beer is not only saving me untold calories and cash, I've discovered I have a lot more free time, and a lot more free energy. All good things.

I'm digging it.

Awesomeness! For me, my victory is the persistence I maintain despite detours - detours that keep me from the gym: the extra, and much welcomed, time spent with family around the holidays, and last week, having the flu.

Anyway, way to go!

That's awesome!!! I go back and forth between not-drinking and drinking (wine). Both of them I completely enjoy...

While I'm not drinking - "This is awesome! I have more free time, more money, less calories, I get to the gym more!"

While I'm drinking - "This is awesome! I have forced downtime (which is hard for me sometimes), I have lower anxiety levels and, you know, I'm drinking wine (yea!)

So I get the positives of both :)

Great job on the 22 days!!!

GO YOU! I used to bodybuild and would do splits (workouts in the morning and afternoon,) that focused on different body parts and zones. I wish I could get that same level of dedication but getting up at 4:30 AM and working all day, hell - I'm lucky if I can do cardio at night. However I really need to do weights and yoga to balance things out. Thanks for the Universal nudge and reminding me.
