Happy New Week, my Fabulous Followers!

I am doing OK - the weekend was a little tough as I had carb cravings galore and did eat some bread which is very very unusual for me.

I am feeling it today - bloated up..but went to the gym and had a great workout and drinking plenty of water.

So, one of my family members sent this photo of me at age 22 when I graduated from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston circa May, 1977. Wow!!!!

Short Range Goals:

* Movement down on the Idiot Boxes while retaining muscle by year end 2018
* Bodyfat % reading with trainer in early to mid MAY, 2018
* Drink at least 12-14 cups of fresh water daily - especially on gym days
* Continue HIIT mixed in with weight lifting four to five days a week
* Keep up the training notebook to achieve progressive overload

Long Range Goals: 2018
*Bodyfat at 26% or less (Current 29.8%) by end of 2018
*Longer range body fat goal is 22% - which at my age is great!
*Maintain Idiot Box at 160lbs staying under goal weight by end of 2018
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility during workouts

There is our pal! What did you play? My daughter graduated with a cello performance degree from Bowling Green State in Ohio. And one of her friends is at the NE Conservatory right now playing the cello.
