Epididymitis sucks, I can't sit without pain, can't walk without pain, can't stand still without pain. I haven't done anything since PT on Saturday and unless this cipro starts beating this infections ass like now I don't see myself doing anything else this week.

UGH.

Out and about traveling for the holidays, didn't do too much other than some light stretching and mobility stuff, one day I shoveled my parents 2 feet of snow out of the driveway, whew that was "fun."

Good to see you're back to training and feeling better.

Don't do the stupid stuff I do and try and get after it full force right away. Reserve that idiocy for me.

Thanks, yeah I'm trying to ease back into things.

My goal for the 2010 as I stated in the goals thread is to get down to high 170s and sit around 180ish. ~10-12% BF right now I'm sitting at 195 probably 12-15%. It sounds silly to reduce that much weight for only a modest reduction in bodyfat but it's more about reducing total weight in order to reduce my sleep apnea problem. This past sumer when I was 180-182 and 8% BF my sleep apnea stuff was pretty much gone (or so my wife says). Now that I'm a bit heavier it's back.
