mow.jpgStats: 5’10” (165 lbs.)  You exercised sporadically in the summer but, with vacations, kids, sports, work, mowing the grass, etc. you felt like you just did not have as much time to train as you would have liked.  Besides, you got enough exercise “mowing the grass”.  It is the end of summer, the kids go back to school, sports are beginning, so you rearrange your life so you, the wife, and the kids can readjust to school hours.  At this point, you have not trained in four weeks.  Halloween arrives and the house is full of chocolates, bubble gum and candy corn. (167 lbs.)  While you are pigging out at the dinner table, you think “No big deal I’ll start back on Monday”.  Monday comes and you forget that your son had a football game, and you had to “mow the grass”.  There went that bright idea.  Of course, you haven’t made it to the gym and you wonder if you should see the doctor, due to feelings of fatigue, or maybe even depression.  (Remember, daylight savings time has ended and it’s getting dark around 5:30 pm).  Now that the days have shortened, you proclaim, “I don’t have time for anything”.  By this time it’s Thanksgiving, sports are ending, and of course, you have to “mow the grass” one more time before it gets cold.  Naturally, you don’t have time to train.  No big deal you’ll just “start in December”, that way you avoid getting fat during the winter months.  Makes sense to me. (171 lbs.)  To be continued…
