Is that her GUT hanging down? Good god, that's worse than the motorcycle crash victim.  
Speaking of big guts, I was mostly holding off talking about my new workout regime for fear of jinxing myself (or looking stupid if I quit early on) but I am quite comfortable in saying that I am now a machine. Not by Bone standards, of course, but I am working out 6 times a week, 3 weights, 3 on the treadmill. My running improves much faster than my strength, but both are coming along pretty well. My most immediate goal is to have lost 1 inch of fat off my gut by Feb 3 (since Jan 3). If I manage to keep this up until July, I will be one lean mofo on my wedding day - not that anyone will really notice if I have a damn tux on...  
And speaking of THAT, I have hotel information for you jokers that I will be emailing out soon.

Why not get a latex Tux similar to the Batsuit, that'd be sweet!

Thanks, Creeko. By posting that pic, you have just diverted my trip to the vending machine for donuts.

Good job Bert and good luck sticking to your program. I've lost a solid 8lbs myself. I'm at 210 right now. Hopfully I'll be down to 205 in a couple of weeks. I'm pretty comfortable hovering between 200 and 205.

Alright. Over the weekend, I revamped my program. I'm doing a push/pull split alternating between heavy days and light days. Here's what's going on:  
Mon/Push Heavy: Bench, shoulder press, Dips, squats, and calf raises  
Tues/Pull Heavy: Pullups, cable rows, stiff leg deadlifts, abs, and 15-20 high intensity cardio  
Wed: 45 - 50 min low intensity cardio  
Thurs: Push light - same as Mon but lighter weight  
Fri: Pull light - same as Tues but lighter and 25-30min med intensity cardio  
Added to this are 3-4 days of boxing and kickboxing in the evenings. With my diet being pretty strict, I should be sweet as hell in 8 weeks. I have a sweet excel speadsheet that has my goals over 8 weeks and will track my progress.

You are one hard core mofo, Bone. I especially can't see how you can do heavy pulling and then jump right into high intensity cardio. I have to keep my shit separate because one by itself is almost enough to kill me.  
Still, I'm staying on track for the most part. I have been going to the gym religiously and my diet is nearly perfect. My weight hasn't changed much though, which almost has me worried, but I'm just hoping it's due to some muscle gain. We'll know in a few days when I have to measure my first milestone to see if I actually lost an inch off my waist or not since a month ago.

I was wondering how the heavy pull workout followed by cardio would work out and I found out today.  
The pull part was great and I was only mildly sore from yesterdays push workout so I figured I would run for 20 mins at 8.5 mph or 7 min miles at a 1 degree incline. (1 degree approximates road running better)  
The first 3 mins into the run flew by and I felt great. Around the 5 min marker I still felt great but shortly thereafter things went south. When I crossed into the anaerobic zone somewhere around 6.5 and 7 mins I knew for a fact I wasn't hitting 20 mins. My new goal became 15 mins. At the 8 min mark I knew I wasn't going to hit 15. At this point I just point I just tried to hang on a slong as I could. I forced myself to hang in until 12 mins. I walked the rest off.  
I've now revamped my goal to add a minute to my run every week. At the end of 8 I should be at 20. The funny thing is the 12 min run did more to fubar my legs than heavy squatting and stiff leg dead lifts. Go figure.

I was just talking to Heather about running fast - which for me is about 7mph. I did it for a short time this morning and it nearly f'd me in the a. I can maintain pretty well around 6.3 or so but above that I tire out fast. And it really sucks when you look over at the girl next to you and she's 20 minutes into a run between 8 and 9 mph, which seems all too common around here.  
So my goal is to be able to go 15 mins at 6.8mph one month from now (which is .5 mph faster than what I can do now)

One month - that should be no problem if you stick to your program.
