I'm waiting on my Worksman Urban Cruiser bicycle to be delivered that I ordered two weeks ago. Then imma get out and ride around till my fat self can't stand it no more.

I'm jealous. I've priced a worksman with the set up I want, but haven't quite gotten to the point where I'm ready to shell out the cash.

Well, I don't really have a choice. A normal bike just won't support my 400lb ass.

It was on sale, $100 off. Total price delivered was just under $600.

I had to copy & paste the link to see the picture.

I bought a specialized hardrock for my son last summer. He's quite happy with it.

Wow...it's been SO long since I've ridden a bike.

If you don't have a bike, find a bike shop with rentals near a park, grab a friend & go. Take along a snack, or stop for ice cream on the ride. You will be happy.
Unless there's a freak thunderstorm which pops up. Then you'll be soaked, and probably cranky.

The grownup sized teen has the specialized hardrock.
The 9 & 7 year olds have Schwinns (Bike shop versions, not Wal-mart.)
We also have the Schwinn trail-bikes, which hook to adult bikes for longer family rides.
Dad has a Trek hybrid.
I have a Columbia hybrid (Patty) which has been turned into quite a nice little commuter - though I need to add a rear rack.
And a Bianchi via Nirone (Bloo) for when I'm escaping for a few hours - or the day.

I think the best no-nonsense, no BS fitness site on line is Dave Draper's Iron on Line: http://www.davedraper.com/

The forum is an excellent source for good advice.

A strange thing happened. I found this site maybe three or four years ago, and started using the message board. Another poster, a young woman, seemed oddly familiar, and so I PMed her. turned out that she's my niece, who got into body building a few years back, and now organizes shows.

Thanks for the link...  I'll be looking at it in the next few days....

About the niece...  Small world, isn't it?

Get a heart rate monitor.  It will help you on the quest man.  I really will.  Also, join the critical mass meetup group and other cycling groups.  It will help you stay motivated.  Oh, don't forget to get the following stuff for your bike:  2 spare innertubes, a patch kit, a pump that you can take with you for emergencies, a regular pump for home, some water bottles, 2 different kinds of locks, one a ulock, and a cable lock, some lights if you plan on riding at night and rack to carry stuff, and finally a bag to hold your emergency patches and inner tubes and stuff).

Sounds expensive. 

My goal this summer is to use our pool more often.  Until it warms up, I'm trying to get out and walk the dogs more. 

I just did my personal best today 6 miles in just under 2 hours, including walking up and down a set of bleachers at the high school football stadium that most schools share down here 8 times up, 8 times down (one for each set of stairs that the bleacher had.

I'm starting to like this again.

Seems like a nice bike.  Is it me or is it one of those new crank forward designs?  The pedals are not underneat the seat, but a little bit in front.  In case you didn't know, a crank forward design is a hybrid design between a recumbent (which I use) and a standard upright bike.

recumbents are the bomb.  I own a 5 year old version of the sun ez sport recumbent bike:



This is probalby the best, most comfortable bike that I have owned in my entire life.  It's a knockoff of the Easy racers gold rush bike, which at one point held the land speed record or some thing like that.  The knockoff is the same exact thing, but is mass produced to lower the price.  The gold rush is close to 3 grand, but they even make a folding one which is rather interesting.

Yeah, that's what keeps me out of them.  I noticed that I was always catching a cold at the gym.  Reistance bands are what I am using now, but I know I will have to join a gym sooner or later if I want my arms shoulders and chest back, sigh.

I'll have to check out the link mikehz posted, but here's something I've been hearing great things about - http://www.monkeybargym.com/
They really make it look like fun, and the equipment is not a huge commitment, either for cash or space.

There's no cute applause smileys, so I'll have to go with the big damn grin:
 :D
Good job.

I was a lazy ass today. Yoga and Core, in my PJs, while watching Heroes.

It''l be a while before I start lifting weights, I hope to take enough weight off of me where I would not be scared about hurting my back again.  It's a phycological thing, I know, but I don't want to go through that again.  If I pop what's left of my disc, I'm screwed.  They'll have to open my back and put in metal rods.  That would not be pleasant.
