    Older than I feel

    Kicked off the Foundation today. Only took about a week to get motivated to get started.

      Days 2 and 3 haven't happened as have worked in the gardens and yard. About six hours each day digging, hoeing, raking, and push mowing, push, pull, lift, squats, lunges. Full body workout that accomplished stuff that needs done, broke significant sweat for several hours at a time AND great aerobics workout. Tomorrow is forecasted to be raining, so I'll get day 2 in then.

        Day 2 complete.

        It's amazing to me how we can so easily convince ourself we don't have time. 🤔 Day 2 took all of 15 minutes, including a warmup. Would have taken 18 minutes but I didn't take the full 2 minutes for recovery between sets.

          Day 3 of the Foundation in the books.

          Now, I just don't understand it! I have been doing this Foundation workouts for 3 whole days now, so why aren't I just completely slim and trim? Oh, that's right, it took me 6 years to pack on the extra 35#, I suppose I'd better give the program at least a week to produce a miracle.

          See ya tomorrow.

            Day for of Foundation complete.

            Overall, general mild soreness (maybe it's, General overall mild soreness). To be expected after many years without structured exercise on semi consistent basis. Now to see how this bit of exercise effects my golf game as I have a tee time in 3 hours.

                Foundation Day 5 in the rear view.

                Tomorrow is abs, though not sure I can. The abs and 3 pak disappeared some years back, replaced by the senior's belly paunch.

                    Foundation day 7 succumbed to relentless pursuit of fitness this morning, however elements of the routine survived and are rebuilding. No services will be held, as a second assault is planned in 30 days with more forces added to the attack.

                      Though a day late, finished up with Foundation Day 8. Sometimes, life just gets in the way.

                      This day really emphasizes the bi-lateral unbalance I have. Now to go and work the legs some more mowing the hillside with a push mower.

                        Day 9 of the Foundation complete. Starting to notice some improvement in core strength, muscular endurance and cardio health. Translates into a bit longer with the golf clubs, able to work longer at physical labor (read: digging post holes and shoveling mulch) and faster recovery from exertion. The Foundation was a good choice for this 65 year old fat man.

                          Day 10 of Foundation complete. Poor play on the course today, but plenty left in the tank at the end of 18 holes in 85° weather.

                            Foundation 11 behind me. Down 2# (1 kilo) since starting AND slacks, jeans and shorts fitting better, including some I couldn't get into a fortnight past. Probably be 25 - 30 weeks to get to the weight I want to be, actuarial acceptable weight, but, hey, it took 6 years to put it on.
