I'm a 41 year old guy. I'm 5' 10" and 183 lbs. I've been vegan for over 20 years. For the last 7 years I have worked on the computer 9hrs a day. I am also taking online classes (more online time). To make matters worse i have been playing World of Warcraft for the past year. I have watched my body go from being in shape to flabby. I am always sore and stiff and feel tired for no reason. I have decided to put WoW aside for now and concentrate on getting back into shape. I'm lucky because I have always had somewhat decent biceps, but I have always lacked chest muscles. I feel like I have a decent foundation to build upon.
My goal is to increase my mobility, get rid of the love-handles, feel good about myself, and become a healthier person.
Edit: I forgot to mention my fitness history. I used to workout lightly about 3 days a week, but quit 14 years ago. I did that for a couple years and was in good basic shape, although not a bodybuilder's physique. Since quitting my workouts, the only exercise I've had is from drumming and the occasional walk. I plan on joining a gym this week. Another goal of mine that I forgot to mention is to do something about my flat glutes. My butt disappeared since getting an office job and I fear that I am turning into Hank Hill
I've linked to this unflattering "before" pic of me shirtless to help me motivate myself. (using a webcam, so I have to keep one hand on the keyboard)http://i.imgur.com/ZoO3H.jpg
. Edit: I changed the embedded pic to a link instead. It was kind of jarring to see a huge pic of my hairy belly coming back to this thread
