I need more than a fair resolve to publish a photo of myself looking like this!
But I’ve been brave enough to do so, as an added motivation to stick with an exercise regimen that I’ve signed up for, from tomorrow!
I have 2½ months before I take off again, and I am determined to put some shape back into that old body – soon to be 70!
Report from Day 3 of the Regimen:
Trainer Steve asks while stretching me after the morning work-out that concentrated on my legs, “can you feel that stretch in your quads?”
“Quads! What quads?” says I, feeling absolutely nothing in my foreleg.
The cappuccino after lunch at my favourite Greek Cafe is without my usual home-made, icing-sugar covered almond biscuit, a kourambiedes. That’s a sacrifice!
6th April UPDATE
After 7 weeks of ‘working’ with Steve, my Personal Trainer,
MY WAIST IS DOWN BY 1 ½” but my WEIGHT has remained the same.
Muscle Mass is up a tad.
BODY FAT has reduced by 8%
STRENGTH on my left side has nearly equalised with the right.
These photos ooh, aah!!! If only we all were as brave as you (or as unashamedly candid).J
Edmundo writes of this post:
There he is exhibiting his body to the whole world. It’s one thing on the beach, but another on the computer! Not that Michael should be ashamed of his body. It is just that at our age one should be a bit more modest.
I know Michael will say that this is a way to challenge himself, but can’t he do it in the privacy of his bathroom looking at the mirror?
I think he has lost his mind and we should get a restraining order!!!!
