Back To Lean And Mean



Getting back into the swing of it After a break from my daily routine Time to get serious once again On my way back to lean and mean No more snacking on cookies and cake Restaurants? Must stay away Back to salads and calorie wise eating Riding my bike every day At first the routine's a shock to the system Laid around most of the summer Time to get active and get the blood flowing Adonis is just round the corner Have you noticed lately people are more fit Or is it just my imagination We're all taking better care of ourselves Certainly a smarter generation Whatever the reason, it's sure a great sign Nothing but good can come of it A future filled with happy individuals A generation of the super fit © Jack Ellison 2013

    Do you think us guys are finally starting to realize we're destroying our bodies! Don't know if it's my imagination, but there seems to be a trend to better living! Hope so! Cheers, Jack

    Your mind has been VERY active. To write so many... Dragon and Mike came across a saying they want you to hear: They just discovered what is wrong with my brain. On the left side there is nothing right, and on the right side there is nothing left... LOL.. (by RichO, Olympia Wash) Maybe that's what's wrong with my body... LOL... I started eating salads... No Dragon... you don't eat salads, but you can try... How about putting a little barbecue sauce on them?... Yum...Yum... LOL... Gee it Worked!

    I'm one of those people losing a few pounds to maintain my girlish figure and making sure my hips don't lie. Well said sir! =D

    LOL Girlish figure? If I exercised two hours a day and ate nothing but alfalfa and nuts, don't think my figure would ever be classified as "girlish" LOL Gonna keep trying though! Thanks for dropping by Mr. Drake!
