Ps. In case you haven't figured it out by the thread title... MoNa is how I like to abbreviate Mobile Nations. Totally cool and I like the fact when I'm talking about MoNa it sounds like I'm talking about a girl. Gotta make life fun whenever you canKevin Michaluk

I'm in!!! I'm usually a fitness nut, but with a recent change in jobs resulting in higher stress and a long commute I don't have as much motivation to work out as I have in the past. As for goals, I really hate focusing on numbers. To me, it makes working out more frustrating than fun. So, I guess my goal would be to go from a 34" tight to a 34" loose .
As for apps, I typically just use Android apps, including Cardio Trainer (tracks your exercise routes via gps), VirtualGym (gives you workouts to do at the gym or at home), MyFitnessPal (calorie tracker), Daily Cardio Workout (gives short cardio workouts and video instructions), and My24 (app for members of 24 Hour Fitness to review groupx schedules, etc)Everyone, everyone, stop fighting! Look unto me! I possess the blue flag! I wield the power infinite! The universal fabric is mine to unravel! My every thought becomes reality! Mountains will fall! Seas will boil! Day will be at night! People will...run...chicks'll dig me!
So as of this morning I weighed in at 192.7lbs. That's not the heaviest I've been, but it's not the lightest, that's for sure (my heaviest was 207.5lbs after a weekend in Montreal for Adam Zeis' bachelor party. You can see my WiThings BodyWeight & Fat Chart here.
My goal for the summer is to get my body back to where it was a decade ago, when I was in university and working out quite a bit. I was 176lbs, pretty muscular, lean-ish (not as lean as I could have been as I still ate bad). Heck, at 176 I might have been a little too skinny still, but I'd like to see 170's again. 179.9lbs would make me happy
I really enjoy working out. Lifting weights, going for jogs, etc. And I like pushing hard in the gym. Though I've always found I workout hard best when I make it a competition... need a workout buddy to lift weights who is close to the same strength as me. When I workout solo it's too easy for me to get distracted.
So the goal for this month.. eat better (less sugar, salt, etc.), chew more, eat better/less, and ultimately start building back a good strength base upon which i can really, really start pushing hard again.
And if there's anybody in the "Peg who wants to lift weights with me... let me know!Kevin Michaluk
