Yep, I haven't used a gym machine in years. A pair of 40 lbs. dumbells and a dozen different exercise will whoop your butt in to shape. I have about a 10'X15' section of rubber lock together pads in my garage and between squat/curl/overhead presses with the 40 pounders and lunges with a pair of 10's I have found my hill climbing has greatly increased this spring over mainly doing weighted backpack hiking. Combining both is the best I just need to find the time to get back in to walking. Easy to bang out 15 minutes of high intensity full body weights at 5am when everyone else is asleep compared to a 45 minute walk before work or being Mr. Mom to two little kids all weekend. Using a FitBit tracker to compete with my friends and family for most steps a day helps get you up out of your chair durring the day too. Eating right is the absolute hardest part for me. My wife owns a wedding cake shop so the days I'm home there is limitless access to extra cookies, cupcakes or cake scraps. I came across something called the 5:2 Diet which is a form of intermittent fasting. Been trying it the last few weeks and it seems to be helping. The weird thing is I go to bed rather hungry the two fasting days but wake up not feeling famished and my mind/attitude is noticeably better. I stumbled across it reading an article where wightlifters were touting the ability of fasting to kick start muscle growth. Seems counter-intuitive but many say it works.
