It's a New Phil, Week 18

Down two more pounds this week to 252 pounds, giving me a total weight loss to date of 45 pounds!

For weekend reading, I'm planning on picking up a copy of The Shangri-La Diet. Glenn's mention of it the other day got me interested. I'm not really in the market for a new diet; calorie counting and exercise seem to be working pretty well for me. But I have to admit that I'm intrigued by the premise.

I'll report back after I read the book.

Meanwhile I continue developing my unique exercise program using a sledgehammer...

...and two chairs.

I'm not ready to start publishing details just yet, but in case you decide you want to try to work this out for yourself, a few quick safety tips:

1. Don't hit the chairs with the hammer.

2. Don't hit yourself with the hammer. (Very important!)

3. Basically, don't hit anything with the hammer. Unless you need to bust up some old concrete or something. But if you do, be sure to use protective eyewear.

Good luck. And have fun!

Hmmm, you could upgrade to a claymore and be better prepared for any post-apocalyptic situation. Wearing a kilt is optional. ;-)

As long as those mutants aren't too fast on their feet, I think I've got a pretty good shot at them with the old sledgehammer.

Hey Phil, love your stuff, and this "It's a New Phil" series is sublimely inspiring.

Casual reader of the Speculist pops by for some hard fluff--gets sidetracked into a personal improvement diary--decides to get serious about cutting back on smoking and returning to a weight-lifting regime--considers starting a blog about it--decides not to--leaves poorly edited comment instead.

Hey, a sledgehammer? This reminds me of an old game...

"Dodge the dude with the Bat"

"But _especially_the_bat_ though!"

Paulie,

Those were the days. If I might be so bold, I'd say they were the Salad days.
