Hmmm....let's shake things up a bit. Here's the proverbial canvass that I'm working with....mouse over my son reading a comic book to view:
That view is posted because it seems as though everyone is interested in either how much someone can bench press (I have no idea as I don't try for 1-rep maximum lifts....ever) and how big their biceps are. For some reason, the bicep flex is "the" gauge by which one's muscularity is measured. The above pic was taken the Friday before I got sick (the 16th). At the time, I was 6'5" and 240 pounds. [caveat: Now, there are diehard bodybuilders out there who are scoffing and folks who tip the scales at 400 pounds who are wondering if I'm obsessively narcississtic (answer: yes, I am), but really, I am the person that I'm judging myself against and I really know my inconsequential place in the whole scheme of things. I just decided a while back that I'm actually going to start using this web log as a LOG & as such start putting stuff up there about me, my family and then what I think about things]. I figure if I'm going to post all this fitness stuff, I might as well start plaserting the work-in-progress while I go along. Get used to it.
And with that rant out of the way, here's another angle, just mouse over my little war-paint wearing princess to view:
As you can see, the lighting makes all the difference in the world as the first pic shows greater detail while his one makes me "look" bigger. Same camera, same bathroom mirror, same pose, different angle & camera setting. Go figure. And, by the way, on the home-scale, I've lost another pound since Monday's weigh in, so I'm getting jazzed about what's in store.
And, yes, that IS a vacuum cleaner sitting in my bathroom. My house currently has that Sanford and Son, Salvage feel to it.
