  1. It’s been seven years since my last update. Check it out below. https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/47804-im-back/ I’m 44 now and I’ve risen to the position of manager at a local iron works. I also run a welding art studio out of my garage, along with my wife. My two young boys have grown into fine young men. The eldest is about to start high school! Sadly, my fitness took a back seat for these last seven years. I’m not completely starting over but it sure feels like it. Yesterday my eldest saw me with my shirt off and said “You look a little li
  2. This past summer I set aside my fitness routine but I had a very good reason. I decided to become a Certified Welder. It was the 2nd part of a huge life overhaul that began in 2012 when I decided to get fit. When I started night school I knew that as a married father of two I would have to choose one goal or the other, or drop dead. Now I'm happy to report that I've received my 3G Structural Welding Certification and 5 months ago I got a fantastic new job at a local Iron Works. It's just 3 miles from my house and my boss is the same age as I am, a family man like me, and a hardcore metalhead
  3. I haven't been around for a while. I sprained my right elbow and pinched the nerve, which may or may not require surgery to correct. This means 90% of my exercise program is out the window. I've put on a little weight - and not in a good way. I'm planning to start running soon, but I honestly hate doing it. Also I may need to shift my diet away from a Paleo lifting-oriented one. I'd love any suggestions for diet and exercise. Remember, nothing that requires the use of my right arm. Thanks.
  4. Thanks Duality! That's definitely one of the things that drew me to welding - its versatility.
  5. Last week I completed the first of three classes I need to earn my AWS Welding Certification and make a career change. At the end of the last class the teacher asked me to stay late. When everyone else was gone he told me confidentially that once I completed the courses and got certified he would do his best to get me started in the industry since I seem to have a knack for it. It would appear I truly have the Dwarfish talent for forging and crafting hot metal!!
  6. Theodore Roosevelt. And fight him. And get my ass kicked. But still... yeah.
  7. I'm not going to a box simply because I can't afford it! But thanks for the link. Looks great.
  8. The one problem with the grazing idea is that my younger boy will eat it all before the older skinny guy gets a chance!
  9. I was gonna go to work today, but then I thought, "Fuck that. I'm going to Legoland with my kids."

  10. Thanks. I like the grazing idea. I'll give it a try.
  11. I have two sons, Logan and Brody, ages 6 and 3 1/2 respectively. Logan is very active both physically and socially. This is a great relief to me as he was born 6 weeks premature. He shows absolutely no signs of being a preemie except one - he is very underweight. Sometimes he looks a little gaunt. The problem is that he simply won't eat enough to put on healthy weight. This weekend at a birthday party he wouldn't even take more than a single bite of a cupcake. His younger brother eats like a beast and is becoming a little tank. I really want to get Logan eating more and putting on health
  12. Bingo. But i still think you should make your own bow. Pulling a drawknife across a stave will do wonders for your strength and muscle control.
  13. That's how it's done! You're not dieting, you're learning how to eat healthy and never going back.
  14. The best way to learn about bows is to make one. Read this book: http://www.amazon.com/The-Traditional-Bowyers-Bible-Volume/dp/1585740853/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371780683&sr=8-1&keywords=bowyers+bible Work on your fitness. Work on making your own bow, which will strengthen your arms and shoulders. Also, for further bowmaking and archery tips, go here: http://tradgang.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi Hit me up with any further questions you might have.
  15. Speaking as a person who used to be obese, I'm of the opinion that obesity is NOT a disease. However, public awareness of the epidemic has failed to alleviate the problem. If the AMA is categorizing it as a disease simply so they can more aggressively combat it, I'm alright with that. I just hope they choose to combat it with something other that pills and surgery.
