I haven't been to a gym in 15 months, but I can go to our community playground and do pullups, dips, and pushups.

Eating nuts, fruits berries, oatmeal, eggs, chicken and turkey and cheese.

Usually avoid bread, but will have a nice sandwich occasionally.

Lost 10 lbs over 12 months, and feeling very healthy.

Not missing the gym at all.

I had a gigantic tomcat who became obese. He had to wiggle through a pet door to get to his food bowl and at a certain point couldn't fit any more. I considered this a self correcting problem. Stay on one side until you fit. We reached an accommodation - he never became svelte but he did fit. Barely.

A friend became morbidly obese and it turned out he was a secret eater of fast food. A LOT of it. At a certain point he couldn't fit into a car anymore and I thought deja vu. Stay out of the drive thru until you fit back in the car.

Unfortunately they make seat belt extensions and he has thumbs and one of those internets.

I stopped drinking soda and anything carbonated last year and lost about 13 lbs. I would down 3-4 cans a day. I can't do sit-ups probably because of back issues, but will do crunches.

crunches.

That's what I want to start doing regularly, I do a lot of hiking and walking and get a lot of exercise on my arms and upper body from work and activities around the house but I'm really not doing much for the midsection...Cruntches would be perfect to add in to my normal activities...

Thirteen months without the gym. Today is Der Tag. Headed back this morning.

Feel like there's been a big party. Beer bottles, crappy snacks, weed, all sorts of junk piled up. What a mess.

My arms have become al dente noodles. Incline bench and roman chair for sit-ups to start. Plate loaded and cable machines just to regain flexibility. Week or two of that and so I don't kill myself and back it's to business as usual.

Get the physical side of things in order first and feel better, everything else will flow from that.

Well that's cool. I thought maybe someone was sending me hints to get off my butt and move. lol

I'm so fat guys. I quit smoking a couple of months before lock down and have been sitting here eating for over a year.

Been a while for this thread.

My schedule's changed and I don't get to the gym the way I have grown used to over the years. Plus, they took away the preacher bench and curling bars and I don't find the cable machine to be an adequate replacement. I looked into buying some equipment during lockdown but the prices were astronomical. Last week I got a nice steel Weider curling bar and an Olympic plate weight set from Walmart. Prices weren't bad at all and the quality is excellent. Wound up with stuff I didn't need but the set was the most direct way to get the weights I want.

Been banging away with standup curls in the morning and will do three or four sets before work. I have to get back to pushups but lately have had to put my feet on pillows because my toes are *****d up and object to that kind of pressure.

At one time I could put on quite the gun show. Now I just want to maintain strength and flexibility as I get older. These curls help with other hobbies like target shooting - arms and hands are much steadier.

Still exercising.

Doing a 1.5 Mike jog walk every other day. Dips, pullups, burpees, some free weight shoulder presses, and arm curls, and butterflies. Not increasing intensity, just being consistent.
